"This home was very comfortable and full of character! My boyfriend and I rented it for a few days while skiing and had a fantastic time. Sunday River is only about 15 mins away and Mt Abrahams is less than 10 mins away. The lake in the backyard was perfect for cross country skiing. The fireplace was really fantastic and overall the home was cozy and warm. We definitely found everything we needed there-the kitchen was fully stocked and the beds were quite comfortable. The owner was always quick to respond-we'd definitely stay here again."

"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!"

"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."

"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!"
