Downeast country vacation
Quiet rustic getaway very peaceful
the pond is beautiful just deep enough for swimming
the town of Ellsworth is less than hour with all the necessities you need
Bar harbor an Bangor are an hour away for site seeing
Location great, property itself, dirty.
Setting is great on the pond but the cabin was tidy but not clean. Apparently Home Away does not check the homes you list nor does any official licensing approve for public rental. There was a smoke alarm with no batteries. You had to wash a glass before using. I stripped the back room bed to use sheets on the sofa which was more comfortable and when I exposed the mattress pad was appalled at how filthy it was. I'm so sorry to give this kind of report but having my own rental I do know how it should be prepared for a client for health and safety reasons. I also have a permit to rent from local code office. This unit on Lewis Lane could never pass to get a permit. I'll probably not use Home Away again, too 'iffy''.
We have just read your response and am sorry that you felt this way. We wish that you had reached out to us. We hold ourselves to the highest standard of cleanliness, and are shocked that we are receivng this negative review that in a few clicks can hurt our image .
We dont want dissatified quests. A polite way of handling it would have been to discuss the situation at the time. Carolyn owner.
Clean and relaxing
The water is great! Clean and cool. We never even turned on the air conditioning. The cottage is supplied well and offers a variety of games, cards, and books to read or just sit on the deck and enjoy the gentle breeze and lapping of the lake. The only issue I had was the bugs. We could not enjoy outside at all after the sun starts to set. They were awful.
Cottage was just as advertised. Comfy and cozy in a great location.
My group of atv buddies and I had a great stay here. It's not a 5 star hotel but it's comfy and the location is amazing. The atv trail was right around the corner. We would stay here again for sure.
A great place!
We had a really nice time in Carolyn's cottage. The view on the lake in the morning is beautiful!
The cottage is located directly on Molasses Pond , within 30 minutes of golfing, shopping and hiking. Conveniently located near ATV trails.
