About Augusta:

Augusta became the capital of Maine in 1827. The Kennebec River splices Augusta in half. Unlike many towns in this situation, however, it has retained its integrity as a single city rather than dividing into two entities.

The Maine State Museum is a must-see for anyone wanting to know more about the state, its environment, and history. Other points of interest include: The State House, Children's Discovery Museum, Old Fort Western and Blaine House.

Come visit. You will not be disappointed!!

About Joseph Tominsky

We are from Massachusetts and purchased the property for our love of the outdoors. We tookover ownership from another family member who had owned the property for many years. When we took ownership we renovated the ineterior of the home to bring it up to date while providing a relaxing atmosphere.

Joseph Tominsky purchased this house in 2012

Why Joseph Tominsky chose Kennebec

This home has been in our family for many years and is a superb location and provides all the peace and quiet that Maine can provide while keeping you within a reasonable distance from all the amenities you look for while on vacation.

What makes this house unique

Its ability to erase all the tension that work and life brings along everyday!

Whispering breezes, sunshine and the definition ofrelaxation

  • 5 of 5

I had a group of 7 people coming over from Liverpool England. With my wife and mom we totaled 10. We had family that lives on Togus pond and knew the fishing to be great and the location to be central to the state of Maine. We went sight seeing every day from York to Camden/ Rockland Maine and from Arcadia to Mt. Washington. Our visitors came away with a fantastic impression of the state of Miane.

The lake house had plenty of sleeping accomodations, double living rooms, a great kitchen, porch, deck and fire pit. The location was the very definition of peacefulness and the stars at night were stunning to our city dwelling visitors. The Bumpy road location is close yet remote to the town of Augusta which provides shopping, eating out, pubs etc. If you are looking for a getaway in the true sense, then consider Bumpy Rd. where no one will be able to find unless you want them to. I hated to come back to work and you will to.

Great Experience.

  • 4 of 5

The house is great. Owner was very responsive. We would recommend this property to friends. The owner has been very generous by providing amenities such as newer appliances (dishwasher and fridge), cable tv (2), three double or queen-size beds, kayaks and a canoe, gas grill with gas, bath towels and kitchen wares. Downstairs is like a separate apartment with one of the double beds and several singles, its own bathroom and outside entrance. Love the screened in deck overlooking the lake. We were there in late August and the lake was surprisingly quiet. No power boats during the week. The pond has a rocky shoreline but the dock provides good water access. Fishing was spotty, bass and pickerel (an exciting catch), but I guess that's to be expected late in the season. Location is close (short drives) to Augusta, a new grocery store and a bowling alley. Not much to do in Augusta and we spent more time in Waterville, which is an easy drive. Waterville has a nice downtown and Colby University has a spectacular art museum. We drove an hour to Belfast on the coast and enjoyed their harbor walk, downtown and working shipyard. A very enjoyable week.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from spending a week at this wonderful place. The house is clean and very well cared for. There is plenty of room and every thing you could possibly need is there. The house is located in a private cove and it was quiet and peaceful. Fishing was great, as was the dock, the deck and the screened in porch - perfect for the evening when it rained. We shall be returning next year.

Wonderful lake house

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in the cottage - a lovely and very cozy home away from home. There is plenty of room for 2 families, very easy access to the lake, 2 kayaks and a canoe are in perfect shape and even a surprise paddle boat which was not mentioned in the description... We enjoyed exploring the lake and fishing, hiking and sitting at the campfire... Our three teenagers were more than happy to hang out in the basement with a separate TV, solid Internet connection and plenty of board games. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone who is looking to spend their vacation in Main.

P.S. I do agree with the previous review that nets on the bedroom windows need to be installed.

Lovely Low Key Vacation Spot - 4+

  • 4 of 5

We travel to Maine every other year and we had a great time at this lakeside vacation home. There was a great amount of space for the five of us to either be together or to find some solitude (my 12-year-old daughter enjoyed sneaking away to the basement to be alone with her iPad and phone). The house had all the amenities that we could ask for; lots of space to spread out, a nice kitchen with lots of counter space, dishwasher, and kitchen gadgets, and an extra table in the basement for games and puzzles. The one thing that I didn't like was that there were no screens on three of the bedroom windows and with it being so warm we wanted to open the windows but couldn't because of the number of bugs.

The pond was great and the kayaks and canoe were so wonderful to have as well as lifejackets and paddles that were in great shape. The dock (seemed pretty new and made of nylon? so no splinters) was on a nice calm cove on the pond and there was a cool island with a rope swing across the way. We enjoyed paddling over, exploring the island and swinging out into the water.

All-in-all a great vacation where we did little besides nap, eat, and enjoy the water. Augusta is nearby and is a quaint little town, the Maine State Museum was a surprisingly enjoyable museum despite being small -- had a wonderful exhibit on water-powered sawmills.

I would recommend this home to friends.

Beautiful and relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house on a private area of the lake. The house was clean and roomy. Plenty of great fishing, caught a ton of large and small mouth bass, even caught a few good size ones right from the dock. The owners are nice and respond quickly to any questions. This a great place for a nice family vacation and if you go, be sure to check out the Red Barn for some awesome seafood. You won't be disappointed with this house!!!!
