  • Absolutely beautiful!

    "The Mystic offered my family and friends a much needed relaxing vacation. The home offered everything we needed while we were there and the yard was amazing. We spent our days on the dock and in the lake for hours! It was vry hard to tear ourselves away to partcipate in all of the nearby sightseeing Boothbay had to offer. I can't wait to come back next year!!"

  • We love the Lake House!

    "We come every February for the U.S. National Toboggan Championships in nearby Camden, Maine. Part of our tradition for this annual trip is to stay at the Lake House. Christina is fabulous to work with, the house is gorgeous, and the grounds are phenomenal. What more could we ask for? Christina is a pleasure. She is responsive to our requests and goes above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We like to explore outside … the snowshoes at the house are ready to go. We love having a big fire every evening … a huge stack of wood is just waiting to be used. A winter storm knocks out cable/internet in the area … Christina makes bunches of calls to get things sorted out. Plus, she’s an enthusiastic cheerleader for our toboggan teams ☺ We try to describe the Lake House to first-time toboganners but words don’t really do it justice. Here are some of the highlights: -The house is very clean and organized while also feeling completely homey. -We can comfortably fit lots of people. Three bedrooms each have a queen bed, there’s a nook area with a twin bed, and two huge (comfy!) sofas in the living room make for great sleeping spots. The house has 3 ½ bathrooms. -The kitchen is a chef’s dream: huge, well stocked, and well designed. -We spend most of our time in the living area, with the aforementioned (awesome) couches and a huge fireplace. -The house’s linens are all professionally cleaned. Washer and dryer are available if you need them for your personal use. -The cellar holds all kinds of equipment for outdoor activities. -You’ll find beautiful, rustic, and personal fine touches all over the house. -We also really appreciate the green aspects of the house, including solar power and recycling facilities. -I can’t comment on the smaller cabins because they are closed during the winter. We’ve never been to the Lake House during the summer, but can attest that it’s awesome in the winter. There is SO MUCH SNOW and the secluded lake right behind the house is frozen over. You can spend hours and hours outside, especially with snowshoes or cross-country skis. Walk out over the lake and check out the woods – it’s the definition of serenity. The surrounding roads in the winter are like the rest of the local rounds in Maine in winter. The locals have trucks and SUVs and 4-wheel drive vehicles but we were okay with our dinky sedans and some winter weather driving know-how."

  • Excellent Cottage!

    "If you are looking for a peaceful setting on a lake yet minutes to downtown, this is your place! We were happily surprised to the fine the cottage bigger than expected with a full yard and our own dock and plenty of storage for the week. The cottage made us feel right at home as soon as we walked in the door. We had a very relaxing week enjoying some kayaking/boating, fishing (nice small and largemouth bass were caught every day), BBQ'ing, reading, laying out in the sun and just enjoying listening to the loons. Thank you for a great vacation!"

  • our family LOVES life on Knickerbocker Lake, nearby Boothbay Harbor

    "Our family of 12 (ages 8-80) has enjoyed week-long sojourns at this quiet, private lake-side retreat for many years. The kids enjoy swimming in the lake & exploring the lake via kayak. We love hearing the loons at night. The kitchen is fairly well equipped (although a new stove/oven would be very nice!) and we prepare most of our meals together; a trip to the lobster pound is a daily experience. The Botanical Garden is a treasure & we take side trips to nearby attractions such as the aquarium and boat rides in the harbor. On our way north, to Boothbay, we stop at Whole Foods in Portland in order to stock up on fruit, veggies and things we know we cannot get at Hannaford's . We do our 'big shop' for staples at Hannafords south of Boothbay. The local Hannaford store, in Boothbay, is adequate and there is a farm store close by where we buy corn and other veggies. Linens are supplied and we put used sheets and towels by the washing machine before we depart. On occasion there have been minor problems, such as a toilet that needed fixing, and the owners were very quick to call a repair person. We all appreciate having wi-fi at the house and it is very pleasant to sit on the porch, overlooking the lake, when doing email or just relaxing. We take our ipod with us as there is a 'dock' so we can listen to 'our' music. Our adult children and their husbands take turns sleeping at the 'love shack' down the hill towards the lake - its nice to be be able to sleep in while on vacation. We highly recommend a week or two or three at the Knickerbocker Lake Retreat"
