About the property

Long Lake-Lakes Region, 250' Sandy Beach, Sleeps 18

***HURRY-Only after SEPT. 1 available for 2017***BOOK EARLY FOR 2018***

Best spot on Long Lake in The Friendly Village of Harrison, this home has been in our family since it was built in 1990. The home was designed to accommodate Mom, Dad and all four kids with plenty of room for grandchildren. Each bedroom has its own private bath and an awesome view of Long Lake. Spend most of your days at the sandy shallow beach with shade or sun just 100 feet from the front deck. A private dock allows for easy access to your boat for water activities. Dock accommodates a 24ft boat plus there is a mooring for a larger or additional boats. The volleyball court and bocci/horse shoe court is great for some friendly group competition. A typical night is enjoying each others company around the fire pit with a cool beverage and/or a midnight swim. And in any weather, any time of day, enjoy the screened 24 x 44 garage/playroom with a game of pool or a drink from the wet bar with refrigerator , coffee pot, blender, or relax in a rocking chair. On those rainy days, the property is close enough to inside activities like shopping, movie theater, or dining. In less than 30 minutes you will find golfing, river canoeing and camping, old time drive in movie, snow skiing, hiking, biking, mountains, hunting and fishing. We gather here as a family throughout the year and sincerely hope you will enjoy The Mayflower Inn as much as we do.

The Mayflower Inn is fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at the Mayflower Inn and we can't wait to go back next year! We have five families and everyone fits comfortably, especially with the large living areas and each bedroom having it's own bathroom. The house is always clean and the property manager is extremely helpful. The sandy beach and shallow swimming area are perfect for the kids. We would recommend this house for any large group looking for the perfect lake side vacation.

Great Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home for family/friends vacation. What an amazing time we had! We were 5 families with kids. Just like everyone said, specious house, with private bathroom in each room. So much to do: swimming, paddle board, canoeing, boccie, play room, volleyball, swings. Nights by the fire. Loved every minute at Mayflower!

The property was nice, very roomy and a good size for big families or groups. Privet beach was great and canoe and peddleboat were fun. We did notice there was no air conditioning but it was very cool by the water and was not that big of a deal. The rooms were nice and all had their own bathroom which was great. As far as cleanliness, it could have been a little cleaner there. There were cobwebs in almost all the windows and all of the light fixtures as well as dust.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Glad you & your family enjoyed the amazing Mayflower Inn & it's perfect spot on Long Lake. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention. That ceiling fan is 20' high & is hard to get to on a weekly basis. We will definitely work on getting that done more often as well as the spider webs on the upper outside screens.

A Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family (18 of us!) recently stayed at the Mayflower Inn. It was perfect! We had an amazing time. The house sits right on the inlet, close to Harrison center. Driving on our pontoon boat, we all agreed that the Mayflower has the best beach and overall the best spot on the lake! The house was very clean when we arrived. Bright, airy, and open, the kitchen had everything we needed to accommodate such a large crowd. The downstairs, screened in area, was perfect for late afternoon lounging, relaxation, and cocktails. The beds were comfortable and there was a bathroom in each bedroom, which was so convenient. There was plenty of towels, pillows, and bedding. There was a breeze coming off the lake just about every day, so sitting in the adirondack chairs or lounges they provide was just heavenly. The backyard has all the amenities for summer fun; a swing set for the little ones, horseshoe pit, a canoe, paddleboat, kayaks, and plenty of space for lawn games like corn hole or kamjam! We enjoyed the firepit every night! The size of the house provided ample space for everyone to spread out, but cozy too, in its own way. The area of Harrison, Bridgton, and Naples offers so much to do. On rainy days, we went to the movies, enjoyed the small cafes in Bridgton, and of course, shopped at Renys. Words cannot describe just how awesome this house is! To say we were sad when our week ended is an understatement. The property manager was so helpful and friendly. In the months leading up to our stay, she was quick to answer all of our questions and made the check in and check out process easy. If making memories is what it'a ll about, then look no further than The Mayflower Inn! It's simply a slice of heaven... But book soon, weeks for next summer are already filling up.

The Mayflower Inn is fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family could not have enjoyed the Mayflower Inn more!! We have stayed in several other houses in the Long Lake area and this is by far the best one. The property is spacious, clean, and well maintained and the property managers and owners are helpful and accommodating. Would recommend this place for any large group looking for waterfront access and ability to walk to market, ice cream, and restaurants in town. We have already booked our week for next year and cannot wait to come back!

Perfect Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

We had an AMAZING time at the Mayflower Inn. We had 8 adults and 5 kids and we all had a wonderful time. The way that the house is set up is perfect for groups. I love that the bedrooms are away from the main living space so that it can be quiet for napping children. Also, I love that each bedroom had a big window overlooking the lake and it's own full bathroom.

One of the best features of this house is the sandy beach. If you're looking for a place to bring kids then look no further. We had kids ranging from 1 - 10 and they all enjoyed the lake and sand. You pretty much have your own cove of sandy beach and the water is shallow all the way out to the raft (so you can walk to it with the water up to your chest). The water is super clear and it's sandy all the way to the raft and all the way along the cove (no yucky seaweed!). We used the canoe and the paddle boat and also just had a good time playing in the water. Also, since this house is south-facing you get the sun all day! It was perfect for relaxing on the beach.

There's a swing set for the kids, which even has a baby swing (my littlest guy loved it!). The game room / bar area is also really great. After the kids went to bed each night we'd head out there and play poker or pool or just hang out and have fun. The kids also loved the game room during the day, they spent a lot of time "exploring" the property and had a real blast.

Another really great thing about this place is the location. When you're at the house and on the lake it feels very quiet and secluded, however if you take a short walk down the street (short enough for 3 year olds to walk) you can go get ice cream and look at the boats at the marina. We also took a walk down to a restaurant for dinner one night, which was nice.

The fire pit is great! There's plenty of adirondack chairs for everyone (even kid-sized!) so that you can hang out by the fire and make smores.

This is, by far, one of the best houses I've ever stayed at in Maine. I HIGHLY recommend the Mayflower Inn.
