Great place

  • 5 of 5

We have really enjoyed the time staying at this lake house. Everything was superb. We spent most of the time outside - on the deck, in the lake and near fireplace. It was a very relaxing stay and we got back fully recharged.

We will be recommending this place to our friends and will try to get back there again.

Wonderful Lake House

  • 5 of 5

We loved this wonderful relatively private lake house! Perfect place to relax. We caught fish (bass) off the dock, swam and celebrated my wives 40th birthday. The house is set up perfectly to where only the living room ceiling fan was needed to cool the house. Large kitchen that has everything, nice bathroom and good sized bedrooms. The local town has everything you need. (10 mins away) The owner is excellent to communicate with.

Traditional Maine Camp

  • 4 of 5

Six of us stayed in the camp in Mid- February. Overall we had a very pleasant experience. Maine had just gotten 3 feet of snow. The driveway was well plowed with plenty of parking.

One down side - we were not told we needed a shovel to get into the house.

Luckily we always travel with a shovel in the winter. Had to shovel out 3 feet deep snow about 6 feet back to get to door (no shovel inside). This is an easy fix if they provide a shovel or let guests know what to expect upon arrival.

We would have been out of luck if we didn't bring our own.

Had to turn heat on when we got there which was not that big of a deal since the camp heated up quickly.

Traditional comfortable Maine camp with some nice rustic touches.

Good ice fishing.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay overall. Sorry for the miscommunication, there were 2 shovels in the garage that I should have let you know about. Thanks for the tip. I did leave one out by the stairs for next time. I hope to see you again. Jim

great stay in Norway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I plus another couple stayed here for a weekend in October when we attended a wedding. The house was very comfortable (good heating system if you visit in the fall/winter) and has a great common area/living room where everyone can hang out. We enjoyed drinking coffee on the back deck each morning while gazing at the lake, and I would love to come back some time when it is warm enough to enjoy the water, dock, and fire pit. The house is about a 10 minute drive to town, where you can poke around in shops, cafes, and the local brewery. We will be back!

Great Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for the weekend while attending a wedding at the Granite Ridge Estate. We had a wonderful time and were able to enjoy the lake, the canoes, the dock and the fire place. This home was just minutes away from the wedding venue and worked out perfectly for us. There was plenty of space for everyone and offered a very homey atmosphere for a fall weekend in Maine. The owner was very helpful and responsive to e-mail and text message. Highly recommended place to stay!
