"I found this little gem on VRBO and couldn't have been much happier about it. I'm the Head Coach for a performance Ski team and we had an event in Sunday River (30min away) and as this was a pretty important event seclusion and staying away from outside distractions is paramount. The morning after our arrival night I went for a walk out on to Papoose pond and noticed some iced over Ice fishing holes. After some time we found a local to Auger in a few holes for us and I was able to introduce my athletes to Ice Fishing right out the back door. we sat by the fire every night and the athletes were able to relax and enjoy themselves. The house was exceptionally clean upon out arrival and well stocked with fire wood. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for some peace and quiet in a beautiful setting!"

"I've visited this house with my own family and with friends' families multiple times over many years. Every time we enjoy the small cottage feeling on the lake no matter what time of the year. As a kid, the bunk beds were the best part and always what I looked forward to, although the paddle boat my be a close winner. Now as a young adult, I look forward to the homey feeling sitting around the fire (outdoor or indoor!) at night sipping hot chocolate and enjoying the serenity of Maine. The owner always makes this an easy getaway and has the house in great condition and clean when we arrive."

"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!"
