Recent Aroostook County property reviews

  • A lucky find on VRBO!

    "This is a beautiful spot, with a back yard that slopes gently down to a dock on a small estuary that curves around a tiny island. The view of Cross Lake beyond is expansive and wonderfully peaceful--the only watercraft we saw (mid-week) were a few kayaks and some ducks feeding near shore. The cottage is at the end of a private road with a few other cabins on it and it feels very secluded and private. It is spotless inside, with comfortable beds, a sunroom with windows looking out on the lake, and a very well-supplied kitchen and bath. Some of the highlights of exploring the area were seeing the Acadian Village in Van Buren with 17 restored buildings full of fascinating interiors, old objects and furniture, and ingenious milling and farming machinery; buying vegetables at an Amish farm stand; and seeing fields of pink, white and purple potato flowers and bright green buckwheat. Everyone we encountered was exceptionally friendly and helpful, including one of the caretakers whom we met. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone and would love to come back someday!"

  • Beautiful Area!!!

    "What a great place! Great location!! Spent a week here in 2013 and have already booked the place for 2014! Plenty of room! We have 4 kids and we all were able to spread out! The upstairs was a wonderful "kid place"! Swimming in front of the cottage was perfect as it was shallow enough for my youngest and the older ones enjoyed jumping off of a rock further out. Many hours were spent in the paddleboat. We did have a few days of rain however the covered porch served us well for endless hours of games! LOVED listening to the Loons! Yes, the Sunsets were so beautiful! Quiet! Loved it! Looking forward to this July!!!"

  • Plunkett Pond Cabin

    "This is a lovely 2 bedroom cottage that my husband and I rented in August. The cabin was very clean and perfect for us in every way. Scott and Mary are wonderful folks who take pride and great care in furnishing this cabin so folks can relax and enjoy their time away. The kayaks were a bonus. Plunkett pond is beautiful for swimming and kayaking on. The loons were a welcome sight (watching the parents feed the young and learning their calls was a blast). The sunsets were amazing and everyone we spoke with was very friendly. We hope to return again next year for some much needed peace and quiet. We spent a lot of time exploring the area and also Baxter State Park. This part of Maine is our favorite home away from home. The Bear Den is a favorite as well as Shin Pond Pub."

  • Rustic Tranquility

    "Frank and Bonnie's Lake Pleasant home is a rustic haven with all the modern amenities needed to make for a relaxing vacation in a secluded spot deep in the woods of Maine. The large kitchen, comfortable living area, and deck with birds-eye view of the water all combine to provide a sense of tranquillity and being away from it all. Prepare to be charmed by a long drive down a winding unpaved road with breathtaking views only to be matched by the beauty that you'll find at the end of the road where Frank and Bonnie's cabin awaits. Be sure to bring all your food and supplies with you upon arrival as you will not want to leave this little oasis. If you're looking for the company of humming birds, chipmunks, loons, woodchucks, and the like, this is the spot for you. With a spring-fed crystal-clear lake at the foot of the property and a kayak and canoe to explore, campfires by the water, and great views of Birch Point's weekend fireworks, the unique experience of enjoying this home cannot be compared. Trekking up and down the 60+ stairs between the lake and the house is a terrific workout and you'll end your vacation with stronger legs then ever. Frank and Bonnie have thought of everything to make visitors feel at home while their agent, Alison, is terrific at managing the property. Thanks so much for allowing us to rent your beautiful home!"
