This was our first vacation here and it was perfect for our three year old and five year old.

Owner response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and I loved the artwork left on the fridge for me. Thank you for taking such good care of my house.
We really enjoyed our stay at the lake house. The beach and dock really are perfect for little kids. We had a 4 and a 7 year old and they lived in the water. The water was warm enough (thanks to a few hot weeks in June) and we were able to rent a boat and even swim in the middle of the lake. The house is on the rustic side but had everything we needed to sustain ourselves. The hot tub was a bonus, as well. The location is very convenient to most things (10-15 minutes to shopping) and the lake is a treasure. We caught tons of bluegills and small bass off the dock. Joanne is a GREAT communicator which as a renter I really appreciated.

Owner response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay and thrilled you had success fishing off the dock. It was always a big thrill for my children! Thank you for your review.
Our family so enjoyed our stay at New Beginnings. Joanne was very attentive to our needs and the house was spacious enough for children (ages 2-9) and adults. We really enjoyed the beachfront and dock. It allowed all ages to enjoy the water. It was even perfect for a sea plane to land and give us rides (great experience - Mast Cove Sea Plane Base, Naples, ME). Racing up to the hot tub when the kids were chilled was another bonus. The fire pit allowed us to devour many, many s'mores during our weeks stay. We loved the view when doing dishes in the kitchen and felt very comfortable and at home there. The weather was very good and although the pollen was high, it didn't slow us down from enjoying the water. We would certainly recommend this property to all of our friends and family and hope to be back again next summer.

Owner response: A sea plane ride?! That was a great idea and I need to add that to the book. The fire pit was always a gathering spot for family and friends. If the trees could talk there would be many stories. Please let me know as soon as possible if you plan to return next year so I can give you a preferred choice.
Our family (all adults) traveled to New Beginnings from different parts of the country for a Graduation. We found a house that surpassed our expectations of the just like home experience we hoped for. The house is wonderfully comfortable. Very clean and well equipped The living room was great for hanging out together (weather sadly was not good). As was the kitchen when preparing a meal. And enough room and privacy for all. We enjoyed walks on the quiet road, even in the rain. The lake and the setting is breathtakingly beautiful.On our last day the sun came out and we all wished we could stay on to really enjoy the dock and beach. Fielding requests from the family for a return visit! Also, we had a quick response from Joanne when a problem arose and we appreciated that.

Great location. We had a wonderful time here. Good beach. If you have a boat be careful of the rocks. We're definitely going back.

We had a wonderful week at 'New Beginnings'!! We visited with another family - 4 adults, 4 kids aged 7, 6, 5 and 3, and found the house perfectly situated on an island on Thompson Lake. The house is very well equipped with all the relevant kitchen ware etc. Nice to have 3 refrigerators in the property for food/drinks. Very comfortable beds and the place was clean and well presented. The photos of the house accurately reflect the house and the lake was simply stunning! Warm clear water, beautiful beach providing easy access for the little kids. We rented a motor boat from Thompson Lake Marina which was great fun! Definitely recommended. We also enjoyed the kayaks and went out each day to kayak around the island with the kids. The owner was helpful in answering our questions about the hot tub, and came over straight away to clean it out for us so we could sit and enjoy the stars above each evening. She was professional and friendly with all her correspondence. We would love to return again to this special place.

Owner response: It was great meeting you, and a pleasure to see the excitement of the children.
This home was perfect size for two families ( four adults and 5 young boys ). The photos pretty much reflected the home, however the view was even better in person! The water was clean & clear to swim in, kids enjoyed fishimg and wonderful place to kayak around the island. The house had all of the necessary immenities as well. The fresh blueberries on the property were a wonderful treat. Island was a great place to take a walk too. Good in between place to visit Mt Washington & LLBean. Owner was very accessible for questions and was incredibly friendly.

Summer Kick Off
Summer Kick Off
We were looking for a place to start our summer off, when the kids school ended. We had gone to the Belgrade Lakes but wanted something different this year. We started looking for lakes first, Thompson had what we were looking for; clear water, moderate temperature and good length, (were boaters) 12 miles by 2, with little marina and food spots dotted here and there, lots of islands too. We found the Jordon home next...Seculuded location, sandy beach, with dock, fire pit, kayacks, to use..... everything we were looking for. The home is very welll appointed, all we brought was food, everything else was there. We had a great time with the kids, swiming all day long, kayack adventures, bike rides, sunset cruises on the boat.... Badmitten matches with everyone, then a cool off dip in the lake...What more quality time could a family ask for. The Owner was professional and timely in all correspondence, rental agreement and to include return of the modest security deposit. We are planning our next stay at the Jordan home for the fall...
