"I am reluctant to leave a review of this cabin for fear others might discover one of the sweetest vacation retreats in New England!
The cabin was exactly as described, the scenery serene. Whether making s'mores by the firepit steps from the lake, reading by the cabin's fireplace, swimming, sunbathing, conoeing, fishing, or just relaxing, this spot has it all. My family of four (two children 11 &12) had a wonderful time bonding, laughing together, and being "unplugged" (by choice).
There are places to buy groceries and supplies, an amusement park for the kid in all of us, antique and junque shops for treasure-hunters, hiking and biking trails for the fitness-conscious, all manner of restaurants serving various cuisines, a cinema for those rainy days, and lots of home-made ice-cream stands - all within about 5-10 miles of the cabin.
We were all so reluctant to return to our "normal" lives of deadlines, schedules, stress, and commuting. Once mortals have tasted ambrosia, it's hard to go back to casseroles..."

"Our visit to Maine in September was a special treat for us Southerners. Our stay at this charming lake home was the best decision ever. Even our teenagers spent hours playing on the rocks, swimming, enjoying the beautiful lake view. The house is super comfortable with room for privacy, as well as lots of "together" time. Every night was family game night, with the board games thoughtfully provided by the homeowner. We were easily able to drive to nearby towns and attractions from our "home base." It was a perfect New England getaway!"

"I recently had the pleasure of spending a week at this adorable house on the lake. I have a 5 year old son, so the convenience of having the beach just steps away was so great!
The beach is private and very relaxing. We spend many days just playing on the beach and in the water enjoying every minute. At night we would have a fire in the firepit and roast marshmallows.
For the times when we needed to spend a day away from the beach, there was so much to do just minutes away. We would shop, go to the movies, etc.
The house was well stocked with cooking utensils, cleaning supplies, beach chairs, beach toys not to mention the 4 kayaks which we loved.
Paula was very accommodating and made sure our every need was met. Even after we left, I received a package in the mail the following week from Paula containing my son's water shoes which we had mistakenly left behind.
I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a fun, relaxing lakeside getaway.
Thumbs up all around!!!"

"We rented Rocky Shore Retreat for one week in July for four adults and two kids. It's a very special spot. Having a pier, dock, private beach, mooring, and floating trampoline dock (brand new) made this the perfect place to really experience the lake. We took full advantage of the kayak, canoe, and windsurfer, and rented power boats from the marina down the street. The deep-water dock made tying up stress-free. A large oak tree in front adds to the beautiful setting, as well as the outdoor fireplace and screened-in porch. There's also a basketball hoop and paved driveway in front, which was an added bonus. The street is extremely quiet and safe.
The house itself is spacious and the kitchen well-equipped. It definitely has a "camp" feel to it. If you're looking for a modern house with brand-new appliances and matching silverware, then this isn't the place for you. If you're looking for a charming, fun, family lake cottage, then you won't be able to find a better setting. We would definitely go back!"
