A piece of Heaven in Moose Lake
"The location was all we hoped for. Could not have been more excited from arrival to the last night. Bummed we had to leave. The home is very well maintained and cozy. Felt extremely comfortable. The recommendations of activities fit perfect into our very open schedule...lol. Visited the B52 crash site and were left speechless. Thanks for the great time and would not only recommend but look forward to a return soon."

"My husband and I wanted to spend some time in New England, because when summer hits, I want to go NORTH. This was my first time in central Maine (exluding Kittery/York) and it was exactly what we hoped for. Our goals were: relax, witness some of the beautiful nature that our Creator has made, relax, have fun, and relaaaaax. This cabin was just what we needed for that. The views of the lake, from nearly every room thanks to the many windows/sliding doors, kept us feeling serene. The kitchen was properly equipped so I was able to make dinner a few nights, which is a relaxing feature for me! We appreciated the modern bathroom - we were in a cabin, but we certainly didn't have to rough it!
The cabin was great for the 2 of us, but it would likely be cramped for any more than that. The twin bed on the screened-in porch would accommodate one, but it was honestly pretty chilly most nights so I'm glad we had the upstairs king size bed!
While visiting Pine Point, we took day trips to: Eastport/Calais, Bangor, Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park, and one day we went for a drive just to see Mt. Katahdin - no hiking up the mountain for pregnant me. The location in Lincoln was great for a small town feel, with plenty of whatever you needed around. (Little did we know upon arriving that Lincoln is one of the bigger towns in the area!)
If you're planning to eat in town, the Timberhouse Restaurant is incredibly affordable and has fantastic homemade pies. Our last night in town we visited Gillmor's, where we each had a "down east potato boat" - a massive baked potato stuffed with haddock and smothered with lobster cream sauce. That may very well bring us back to Maine another time. ;) The Farmer's Market was in Lincoln on Friday (and Calais on Tuesday) so be sure to check it out if you're looking for handmade items or homemade food."

Total privacy; extremely quiet; peaceful retreat with only the sound of the river
"Think Retreat...this cabin is at the end of a very long dirt road (some potholes and ruts so take it slow) surrounded by woods and close enough to the river to be able to hear it. If you are looking for a place to rest and recoup, this is it. I personally feel it is the ideal romantic getaway. A perfect place for a writer and or artist or wildlife & nature photographer. A great place to be alone in thought. We never felt we had to leave the cabin. When laying in bed, look up and see the stars. The cabin is well equipped...I might suggest to bring a camping lantern or headlamps or any battery operated lamps...although they did have a few already there. The cabin runs on propane lights...I just happen to need or like alot of light for reading. Talking with Patricia over the phone seemed more like talking with an old friend. We spent most of our time in the large screened in porch, eating; making puzzles; playing scrabble; reading; resting on hammock, etc.
We drove an hour to go to the Pelletier's logging restaurant bar and grill, only to find out it had closed a month prior due to the economy...sad. We went across the street in Millinocket to the Schoodic Inn Restaurant instead and although it offered no atmosphere, the food was more than enough and was good. Baxter is definitely worth visiting and spending a day there, keep in mind, there is a fee to enter. We use to enjoy driving and then walking to Sandy Stream Pond to watch moose in the water...because it is a walk on wooden planks, I would not recommend it for people with disabilities. An hour and a half from cabin is also Bar Harbor and National Acadia Park...both worth visiting. Greenville near Moosehead Lake is a small tourist town and the Moosehead lake area is also where we would look for moose and also in Rockwood Maine.
Although we did not see any moose or deer, we did hear a deer call; an owl and coyotes. Saw a bear an hour away on the golden road/logging road near Baxter Park.
We hope to be able to return someday, maybe next time in the fall."

"We had another wonderful week at Three Sisters again this summer. Your place is really perfect for our large group and we are so grateful for the opportunity to rent from you! The set up is so perfect for multiple generations, as everyone has their own space to retreat to, but the main house remains the primary gathering space for meals, games, etc. The tennis courts are a HUGE bonus! In years past we also sought out town tennis courts in other rentals, but here, it's all available in one place. We also really appreciate the use of your kayaks. Finally, we don't have to lug our own all the way from Pennsylvania! The beach area, dock, deck and main house are our favorite spots, but there is really not a single thing we can complain about. This is a gorgeous property with every amenity. We have been here two summers now, and everyone in our family is hooked. We have made special memories already, and we hope to keep coming back for many more years. Thank you so much for sharing Three Sisters so that we can all enjoy this perfect place for families to reconnect, make memories and enjoy a wonderful vacation together."
