perfect Maine vacation home
"We had a lovely week in this wonderful home tucked into the trees and looking out on a beautiful lake. The house is only a mile from a nice little town with a country store and a couple of restaurants, yet it feels like you are in the middle of the woods because of the trees on either side. I don't think the pictures that we saw ahead of time did the view justice, it was such a pleasure to gaze out onto the lake at all times of the day (the sunsets were particularly breathtaking). We spent the entire week in and around the water -- a sunfish and a two person kayak are available to renters, and the lake was perfect for swimming as well. Our entire family had a relaxing and fun week in this lovely home, I highly recommend it!"

"My wife and I spent 5 nights at the Log Home and enjoyed every minute of it. The seclusion was just the thing we needed as we celebrated our 10th anniversary. The deck was a perfect place to sip our coffee and read a book. Although we would have been content just staying at the cabin the entire time, the trail and lake was a great way to spend some time outdoors. We were able to borrow a canoe from a neighbor down the road and get thoroughly immersed in the natural beauty in which we found ourselves. When we ventured away from the woods, we were met with many great people as we went through the list of suggested places to visit left by Kathie. The notes that were left were so detailed and extremely helpful, and when we had questions, Kathie was only a text away. It is obvious she loves this region and wants to share this love with all. There are so many little villages nearby that provide a variety of experiences that are sure to cater to anyone's interests. We really enjoyed going out for breakfast at a nearby cafe called the Olde Post Office Cafe and hitting up a pub called the Liberal Cup. We even had our first full lobster dinner at the Lighthouse Wine and Seafood Market. I would definitely come back and would recommend this to anyone and everyone!"

"We had the pleasure of staying at this lovely cottage in early August. This is the fourth time we have rented through VRBO and this was by far the best rental yet! The owner was easy to work with and responded quickly to any questions. The home was very comfortable, well furnished and well supplied with kitchen items, fun Fiestaware dishes and plenty of sheets and towels. As stated in previous reviews, the pictures do not do the cottage justice! The lake was beautiful and clean, perfect for swimming or boating. The owners provided a canoe and two kayaks, which we took advantage of daily. The dock was great, with stairs for entering the water,which helped avoid the rocky shoreline. There are a fair amount of stairs from the home to the lake, providing multiple patios/decks, with outdoor chairs, which allowed moving from sun to shade accordingly during the day. The night sky was amazing for star gazing and we saw spectacular meteor showers a few nights. There are neighbors on either side, but we rarely saw or heard anyone during our stay. The property as many trees and provided a nice amount of privacy. This is the ideal spot for relaxing and enjoying the outdoors. Our 15 and 16 year old and medium sized dog all have a great time and we all agree that this vacation home deserves a return trip!"

From age 2 to 78, all loved our family vacation week.
"This remote place was perfect for our extended family of 24, 11 of them children under 7. No neighbors were close by to be disturbed by the 6 two-three year olds that took turns with crying. The playground swings and merry-go-round were used daily. We enjoyed practically everything:canoes, kayaks, water slide, pontoon boat, game room tennis court, basketball court, volleyball, and the campfire area for S'mores. The lake was comfortable for swimming(not too warm or cold in mid-August) and the islands fun to explore. I loved the loons, easily seen and heard. The kitchen was convenient with plenty of dishes to feed the gang. The chalet was clean with comfortable furniture and plenty of room to spread out or be together. Lee Howard, owner, was easily reached during the week, and eager to make sure we all had a good time. We would definitely return."
