"Loved walking into a sparkling clean home-even the basement. It was a cold winter day and it heated up in no time and stayed cozy for the weekend. Great views and quiet. Kitchen is well-equipped. It was comfortable for our family of 5 including 3 adults a child and toddler. Would definitely rent again."

"We just returned home from this perfect cottage. All we can say is WOW! This well-equipped home had anything and everything we could possibly want. From kayaks to clean linens and slipcovers to parchment paper in the kitchen drawer! Even found
a few night lights to put around so we wouldn't trip over anything in the dark! Binoculars to watch the loon and her babies swimming on the lake were hanging there for our use. Patty and Eric provide everything! We have 3 pre-teen/teen children and they were totally entertained with swimming, kayaking around, playing board games and taking pictures of the beautiful scenery. We are so glad we found you....it was a little piece of heaven :-). Thank you!!"

"My wife and I have enjoyed several stays at this log home on Crescent Lake. On two occasions, we’ve invited friends from Europe to join us. And a few years ago we had a handful of our oldest friends meet there for a 30 year college reunion. What keeps us so enthusiastic about coming back and about sharing this place with our friends is the fact that it doesn’t feel like a “rental”. As soon as we arrive, the house feels like a home, and everybody we’ve been there with feels equally comfortable as soon as they walk in the door.
Since I really enjoy being outdoors, I’m never at a loss for things to do in Raymond. Crescent lake is the perfect size for casual trips in either of the two canoes that have always been down by the dock. Not everybody has been up for a climb to the summit of Rattlesnake Mountain. But I’ve tried to make it a daily routine and gotten some magnificent photos from its overlooks that face at least four of the region’s lakes. Everybody I’ve been there with has especially enjoyed gathering on the screened-in porch for meals and for conversation. The younger kids have spent hours searching for minerals in the crushed granite drive that leads down to the house. And they just loved the nearby Maine Wildlife Park. My wife’s absolute favorite memory is the sound of the loons, especially at night. I’m not much of a TV enthusiast, myself. But everybody else was impressed by the cable service that seemed to offer just about every channel that they could ask for. Day or night, I personally prefer watching nature unfold at the end of the exceptionally spacious dock.
This year, we arrived in the off-season and were delighted to be there for the onset of autumn color. At times, we felt like we were the only people on the entire lake and the tranquility was an added bonus to our stay. We brought our own kayaks this time, and after a little trial and error managed to navigate all the way from the log home into Sebago Lake! It’s an all-day trip, and I wouldn’t recommend it to the casual paddler. But for any serious kayaker or canoeist who doesn’t mind a couple of short portages, it’s an exceptional run!
Thanks for another memorable vacation. And we’ll look forward to coming back next year!"

"We just returned from Maine/Sebago Lake the other day and we had a fabulous experience staying at this house. It was perfect for our families (9 total; 5 kids and 4 adults). It was just enough room for everyone. The lake access was close and very easy to get to. The lake was cool, crisp and pure as can be. The kids loved jumping off the floating dock. We also saw some bald eagles - truly magical. The owner was the nicest, most accommodating landlord you could ask for, and so are the neighbors. The area is beautiful and all round, just a wonderful family vacation. We would definitely return, especially for the price. We looked and looked and this was by far the best deal."
