"We stayed here with 4 adults, a 7 year old child and a dog. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived because the photos do not do the house justice. The entry level has 2 bedrooms (one with a king bed and one with a queen bed) and a bathroom. The bedrooms were very pretty, clean and comfortable with ceiling fans and air conditioners. The basement level (one level down) has a bigger bathroom and a room with 2 twin beds. There is also a loft area above the living room which had a small sleeping area which was perfect for our 7 year old. The house was clean and well maintained with a nice supply of dishes, towels, etc. We spent alot of time at the waterfront area which was small but worked well for our group. The dock was twice as wide as shown in the photos and more sturdy than I was expecting. The hammock was a terrific place to read and watch the water. The lake itself has boat traffic but it was very quiet and minimal while we were there and we had a great time exploring with the 2 kayaks and canoe that were on the property. It is a great place to fish and swim - there's a rocky entry and bottom for the swimming area but it was fine with swim shoes. One warning that there are alot of stairs to get down to the waterfront so it would be difficult for someone with disabilities and would be alot of work with very young children. But it worked perfectly for a 7 year old and a medium sized dog and gave us extra exercise. The owner was very responsive via email before we arrived and was quick to answer any questions that we had. I would definitely recommend this rental as a beautiful stay for someone looking to relax and enjoy the water!"

"Our family loved Ed's camp on parker pond. It provided us a true Maine camp experience. The comfort of the cabin and bunk house were a great retreat for my wife, 10 year old and 13 year old sons and myself. We will never forget the beautiful boardwalk that makes its way from the camp through the forest to the lake. We paddled, fished and explored the lake and its islands for days. We saw Loons, eagles, deer, fox and lots of fish! The local Farm stands and cafe's in the surrounding area were a big hit for lunch out or making dinner at camp. On a rainy day we went to the State Museum in Augusta which provided 4 floors of incredible Maine heritage. We cant wait to return soon."

"4 friends and I spent the week, fishing, swimming, sight seeing, drinking, relaxing, exploring, eating and mainly just getting away from city life. The house provided everything we were looking for in a trip. Evenings were spent round the outdoor fire grilling food and having fun. Daytimes were spent enjoying the area, full of natural beauty and friendly people. Would very much recommend this place to anybody. Thanks!"

"The Loon's Nest provided our two families with a wonderful place to kick back, relax and unwind for our summer vacation. The house was spacious and beautiful. The kitchen was easy to work in, a/c helped on the hot days, the grill was brand new, washer and dryer were so good to have, and we had all the firewood we needed for evening campfires. The view of Lake Anabessacook was spectacular. We fished, kayaked, swam, and explored the lake. The loons' call was beautiful...a peaceful and ghostly sound. We enjoyed seeing the loons and all the nature around the house. I definitely recommend this property for rental. You won't be disappointed!"
