Charming beach home
"We just left this amazing home on Drakes Island. This is a true family home with plenty of space and a homey atmosphere. We felt welcomed right from the beginning with the owners greeting and showing us around the exquisite property. This is beyond a simple beach cottage and more like staying at a family estate with easy access to one of the most beautiful beaches in Maine. The guest cottage was perfect for small children to stay. There are family momentos around the house that make you feel as though you've known the family for years. We enjoyed the tranquil evenings sitting on the screened porch watching the sunset over the marsh with a cool salt air breeze. There are enough modern conveniences (i.e. gas grill, new refrigerator, cable TV and wifi) combined with old-school charm (i.e. antique furniture, large wooden dining table for 10, and decor). Our family has rented many properties on Drakes Island through the years, and this is one of the most well-kept and comfortable homes in which we have stayed.
Thank you to the Malcolm family for giving us the opportunity to share their home with us and create new family memories."

"What's better than staying at a house on the Maine coast in July? Maybe owning the house. But if that's not possible, rent this one. The house is very comfortable and is surrounded by water. Be advised, however, that the tides are fairly drastic, leaving exposed mud on the Eastern side of the house. Swimming is very doable during high tide, but getting into the water at low tide is impossible on the Eastern side and difficult at best on the Western side.
The owners were very accommodating, but perhaps a little too relaxed about making sure there was enough propane in the tank, which ran out midway through dinner one night. C'mon guys, get a spare tank! Also, the electric range is a bit finicky, with burners sometimes shutting down for no apparent reason. And if you want to make pancakes for breakfast, be sure and bring your own pan or griddle.
That being said, I'd stay there again (if the owners will let me after this review). It's all about location, and this property has it."

"Lynch Lodge was the perfect setting during our time in the Rangeley area. After 24 years, I surprised my Mother with a trip to the area. I set up the visit at Lynch Lodge and have to say that it was simply perfect! It was in a quiet location, close to woods and lake, and provided us with a terrific place to stay. It was easy to find and close to so the many places we wanted to visit. We even found some distant relatives still lived in the area! Lynch Lodge was secure, homey, and so comfortable. It was a wonderful place to come back to each day to relax, make dinner, and have some of the best nights of sleep we'd had in a long time. There was a lot of information about the area that was kept in the house which was very helpful. We read through all of it! We went on several evening animal searches and using Carol's information on where to drive, and saw a total of 5 moose over our 5 day visit. It was fabulous! Thank you so much for contributing to our special Mother-Daughter weekend!"
