                                    This place is so cute! We love the style of this personalized home! My boyfriend and I came up for a ski/snowboard vacation at Sunday River (10 minute drive... so easy!) and got a bonus out of our accommodations! Though the huge pond was snow covered, it was still a site to see! We would love to come back in warmer weather to take advantage! The home itself is immaculate and very well cared for. You FEEL like your sharing someone's home with them rather than just renting a random place. It's very personalized, lived in and cozy. We would DEFINITELY come back! Thanks so much for having us! :)

                                    We spent Christmas week here and found the house fit all of our needs. It was clean, comfortable, and spacious. We enjoyed going to both Sunday River and Mt. Abram for skiing/snowboarding. Also, we took a sleigh ride through the town of Bethel. My favorite part was watching the birds every morning. A very peaceful and serene location.

                                    We enjoyed this property. The photos did not give a real idea of this fantastic location. We had a great time. It was exactly what we were looking for. The property was very clean and everything we needed to have a good stay. The bedrooms were very comfortable. We greatly recommend that home. The owners were really helpful. We will go back anytime.

                                    Lovely house, beautiful location, great vacation! This was not our first time skiing in Maine however this was the first time we stayed off the mountain. We could not have been more pleased with the choice we made to stay at Songo Dreams! For a family of 4 and a dog it had everything we needed. The house was well equipped from kitchen to bath and everything in between. It was well maintained with everything in working order and layed out very efficiently for its size. The decor was homey and tasteful. The weather was VERY cold but the house was warm and comfortable. Just what was needed after a long day out on the slopes which were just minutes away. We cooked in each night (but that is typical for us) and were able to relax and rest to ready ourselves for the next day. The kids and the dog enjoyed going out on the frozen pond and watching the families of birds outside the dining window each morning. I've never seen such fat Bluejays!!! Many kudos to Don and Janet for all their effort to make their vacation house such a home for others to enjoy.

                                    I hesitate to tell the truth about our stay at the cottage for fear of having open dates to rent when we come back. And we will come back. The relaxation of our trip was indescribable. We spent almost all of our waking minutes on the dock enjoying the lake and the breezes. The thoughtful amenties and tranquility recharged our work-weary batteries. Whether we were fishing, canoeing or just napping, we knew we had found a gem. Our families came from near and far to visit and wanted to know when we would be back so they could come back out and stay. We have described this paradise as a place where, if you want to do something, there is so much to do. And if you don't want to do anything, it is the perfect place to do it. Thank you to the Tanguays for the opportunity to share this slice of heaven.

                                    This house is AMAZING!! You can feel the peace as soon as you step in the front door!! Beds were so comfy, linens were clean smelling, fridge and bathrooms spotless!! We enjoyed fishing with the kids (9,10,11, and 11) and boating. They had a great time catching and releasing perch, smelt, trout and perch. We missed the blueberry season because we were too early. If you get this house in July, you can walk out the back door and enjoy fresh off the bush blueberry's. The only thing we wish this place had was back yard to play some ladder golf or bocce in. Because its literally right on the lake, you walk out the back door and down the pier onto the lake with no yard. If you dont need or care to have a backyard....this place is for you!!! We would totally recomment this place to all our friends. The owners and their family who we had a chance to meet, we very, very friendly and welcoming. Enjoy your stay!!! Jeff & Robin (Groton, CT)

                                    We had a wonderful week long stay at this cozy lake-front home! The home was well equipped, spacious and clean. The decor was well thought out to give that perfect home away from home feel! The numerous windows looking out to the lake gave a never ending display of nature from sunrise to sunset. I especially enjoyed watching the family of blue jays that seemed to show up every morning! The location was great and close enough to all the amenities in the area without sacrificing the peace and quiet around us. I would certainly recommend this home to any of my friends or relatives for a stress free stay! We can't wait to return! Thanks again Don for helping us create a most memorable vacation!

                                    This was our first time at Songo Dreams, and it couldn't have been more PERFECT! It was just what my husband and I needed; we loved everything about our vacation there. The house was wonderful, the views were spectacular, and the weather was exquisite. We enjoyed fishing off the dock, having fires in the outside fire pit, traveling the pond in the canoe and rowboat, soaking in the jacuzzi tub, and playing marathon cribbage games on the cool hand crafted board. We LOVED the decor of the house - each bedroom had great character, and splendid views of the pond. After waking from a peaceful sleep in the comfortable master bed, we would walk downstairs to our coffee already made - thanks to the automatic coffee pot, and the smell of pine throughout the house was so uplifting, it was an amazing way to start each day. The house is decorated with remarkable taste and style; very cozy, and we felt right at home. We were looking to totally relax, and this was definitely the place to do it! We didn't have to worry about a thing - everything was there for us; the kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked, the living space very clean and accommodating, and there was plenty of information available at the house if we wanted to eat out or take day trips. We didn't travel too far though; we just really enjoyed the peace and quiet on the pond. Neither of us wanted to come home, and since we left, all we can do is daydream about going back. Thank you Don and Janet, and God Bless! We will see you next year!
