  • Amazing house on amazing island!

    "Our 2 families spent one week in this house at the end of June. We had a great time! The house is very accommodating, not too small not too big, perfectly sized for our 2 families. We loved the high ceiling open space and the amazing view on the lake. The deck is also perfect. With 8 seats to watch the sunset, it's the cherry on the top of a day spent at one of the many nearby beaches. The island itself is also great with lots of possible activities (golf, tennis, etc.). With people saying hi to each other, going around in golf kart, it feels like being in a camping except everyone have houses on wooded land instead of tents! We highly recommend this house to anyone looking to have a relaxing and fun getaway!"

  • What a special retreat!

    "Our family had an amazing week at Merrill House. We found the house incredibly inviting and quite spacious for our group. We enjoyed cooking amazing meals in the old kitchen and savoring them in the Dining Hall, which seated all of us. Our evenings were spent in the Great Hall, with games, puzzles and dancing. The children had an amazing time in the swimming pond, particularly jumping in from the rope swing. We bought kites and spent a wonderful afternoon flying kites. The grounds allowed us to set up various games, such as a volleyball/badminton net and relay races. One of us is a painter who found numerous spots to set up and spend the afternoon painting. The drive to nearby parks for hikes were worth the trip, but we certainly enjoyed 'staying home' relaxing at the Merrill House's porch. It was an absolutely wonderful experience for all. Thank you!"

  • Gorgeous house and stunning views!

    "This house was gorgeous inside and out- it had fantastic views from the floor-to-ceiling windows on the mountain facing side (including the two-story living room), and a stunning breakfast bar (likely made from a tree from the property, though I'm not sure on that one!). The rooms were all good-sized and most had their own temperature control so everyone could stay comfortable, and the three full bathrooms were useful for large groups. We had stunning views of the foliage, and I can imagine it being gorgeous in the winter or summer as well! Our group of 9 adults was very comfortable, and I think another one or two could have stayed without anyone needing a top bunk; for families with teens or children, 13 would be comfortable. The owner was accommodating and responsive to work with on our stay. The only cons/things to be aware of: the walls were on the thin side so conversations carry pretty well through the house - we turned our fan on so it took a lot of noise to bother us, though! Also, 4WD is recommended in the winter but the driveway is pretty steep - those of us with manual transmissions got the trick down pretty quickly of hitting the driveway in second gear to make it up all the way, but I would drive an automatic if you can! Overall, we had an awesome, fun stay, and thought the house was better than the wedding venue :-)"

  • LOVED Maine and Kiwi Lodge

    "My husband and I have always wanted to visit Maine and eat lobster. However, we live on a small farm in Illinois and prefer a country setting vs. coastal setting. I found Kiwi Lodge after much research. It was immaculate inside and out, best stocked cooking kitchen we have ever rented, comfy beds, nicely furnished, cozy! The owner had furnished us with a lot of information before we arrived about the area and there was also info when we arrived. The free wifi was great for researching too. We loved Farmington and got groceries and had our lobster steamed while we shopped. We really enjoyed fishing from canoe and taking the paddle boat out too. We grilled fresh tuna on the outdoor gas/charcoal grill and ended a couple of evenings with a campfire by the lake. It was so quiet and secluded, but we heard the loons, photographed the ducks and listened to fish jumping. We took day trips to Rangeley for scenery, Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park for some great history, South Portland for a day of searching and photographing lighthouses and even found The Porthole where Guy visited from Diners Drive Ins and Dives, and visited York and several other coastal towns. Just a great dream vacation! Only complaint...just wish it wasn't so far, because we would love to come back. We are 55, but I would recommend for any age as the house is equipped for a family too with games, inside and out, video consoles, tv, wifi and exploring nature."
