  • Loved this rustic but updated lodge! Very Private!

    "About 25 years ago we rented a small camp on Shag pond and loved the pond and especially the waterfalls at the outlet. At the time my sister and I were taking a walk and noticed Camp Mollocket and commented on what a neat place it would be to rent and too bad that it appeared to be abandoned and in need of repair. So now that our family vacation has grown to include 3 generations, 6 households, and one dog, I was excited to have the opportunity to rent the camp, and we were not disappointed. The first thing new I noticed driving in were the wind mills. Living in Maine I have heard a lot of the pros and cons and my first thoughts were of excitement that I get the chance of being close to them and how elegant and peaceful they looked. These feelings stayed with me through the week. Even when we could hear the windmills they were really no louder than if a plane were passing overhead. I will admit I, too, was a bit disappointed that the rain had made the beach so wet for the kids to play on, however they soon discovered the positive side ( and the frogs) and spent hours down there catching them and putting them into their mud castle. As for the camp itself, we couldn’t have been happier. Every household had its private sleeping area with the family room dedicated as the kids room. This is the first camp we have had where we had the use of a dishwasher, washer and dryer, and the extra chest freezer. All of which are a bonus when you have that many people trying to get away for a week. The main floor of the camp is very roomy and with the large living room and the wrap around porch each having a large table there was plenty of room not only for eating but for lots of cards, games, puzzles, and arts and crafts. The screened porch was very much appreciated on the rainy days as we were still able to sit and enjoy the outside, the pond, and hear the loons, kingfishers, and other birds. The caretaker, Dick, was a big help when a storm triggered a circuit breaker. He was there the next morning to reset it. The only disappointment was in the fishing. While the little fisher people had plenty to catch, the bigger ones had no luck. However, they are making plans to check out other nearby ponds. We want to thank the Wiersmas for renovating this beautiful rustic camp, keeping its grandeur in tack while making it very user friendly; and most of all for opening it up for renting and allowing us to share this special place. We are hoping to return next year."

  • Wonderful Family Vacation Getaway

    "The house was everything we could of hoped for. It is extremely spacious, lots of seating for everyone. The downstairs game room was a huge hit with the teenagers and young adults, and my grandkids loved the chalk wall. The deck had plenty of seating and room for the entire family. The grill worked perfectly. If your lucky enough to wake early you will be treated to an amazing sunrise. The sun rises over the mountains on the opposite side of the lake, a perfect way to enjoy your morning coffee. The sandy beach was fabulous, my grandkids loved it. Fishing was good, though we did not explore the entire lake. Some boat traffic, but nothing that was annoying. Shopping was close, so no long drives to get groceries, main street is quaint with some interesting stores. The house was extremely clean and had all the appliances you needed. Overall we had an absolutely amazing time and I would recommend this house to anyone."

  • Great week at the Shire

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our week on Rangely Lake at the "Shire." The cabin is adorable and comfortable, right on the lake. Jeannine and Bob made us feel welcome. It was great to have a canoe and kayaks available as well as outdoor grill and table. Swimming was too cold for me, but my husband loved it. There is a lot to do in the Rangely area on the lakes and in the mountains and streams (great fly fishing). Good restaurants, a theater and shopping, too."
