"It was a great cabin for our big family. The cabin was well equipped for us to cook our meals. Our kids had a great time walking around the forest and sledding down the hill in the front yard. The fireplace was wonderful on the cold days and nights. Loved it. Also great for it to be "connected"."

"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 rented the property for the first time in summer of 2014 for our large group of friends with our families. We have been rented for the past few years at other locations and we found this house to have everything we needed. The kids as well as the adults enjoyed the many activities in that were available to us on the property and the house accommodated our group, with plenty of room and space to spread out. We are already booked to go again summer 2015. Thanks so much. Ann"

"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!"
