  • Lovely spot

    "A friend and I enjoyed this cabin for a writer's retreat. The deck has a wonderful peaceful view, the dock is a great place to star gaze, and the cabin is clean, well-stocked and beautifully done. The owner's are pleasant and easy to deal with. And the fact our two well-behaved dogs could join us? An extra and much appreciated pleasure. I highly recommend this spot in the world if you want some peace, privacy and beauty."

  • What a special retreat!

    "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!"

  • Loved this rustic but updated lodge! Very Private!

    "About 25 years ago we rented a small camp on Shag pond and loved the pond and especially the waterfalls at the outlet. At the time my sister and I were taking a walk and noticed Camp Mollocket and commented on what a neat place it would be to rent and too bad that it appeared to be abandoned and in need of repair. So now that our family vacation has grown to include 3 generations, 6 households, and one dog, I was excited to have the opportunity to rent the camp, and we were not disappointed. The first thing new I noticed driving in were the wind mills. Living in Maine I have heard a lot of the pros and cons and my first thoughts were of excitement that I get the chance of being close to them and how elegant and peaceful they looked. These feelings stayed with me through the week. Even when we could hear the windmills they were really no louder than if a plane were passing overhead. I will admit I, too, was a bit disappointed that the rain had made the beach so wet for the kids to play on, however they soon discovered the positive side ( and the frogs) and spent hours down there catching them and putting them into their mud castle. As for the camp itself, we couldn’t have been happier. Every household had its private sleeping area with the family room dedicated as the kids room. This is the first camp we have had where we had the use of a dishwasher, washer and dryer, and the extra chest freezer. All of which are a bonus when you have that many people trying to get away for a week. The main floor of the camp is very roomy and with the large living room and the wrap around porch each having a large table there was plenty of room not only for eating but for lots of cards, games, puzzles, and arts and crafts. The screened porch was very much appreciated on the rainy days as we were still able to sit and enjoy the outside, the pond, and hear the loons, kingfishers, and other birds. The caretaker, Dick, was a big help when a storm triggered a circuit breaker. He was there the next morning to reset it. The only disappointment was in the fishing. While the little fisher people had plenty to catch, the bigger ones had no luck. However, they are making plans to check out other nearby ponds. We want to thank the Wiersmas for renovating this beautiful rustic camp, keeping its grandeur in tack while making it very user friendly; and most of all for opening it up for renting and allowing us to share this special place. We are hoping to return next year."

  • Terrific Lake Side Vacation Home

    "We rented the lake house the week of Christmas 2012 to spend time with our extended family coming from several different states and it was perfect! The house is huge and incredibly well equipped. The kitchen had every possible utensil, serving dish and pan for preparing a great Christmas dinner as well as large meals all week long. The bedrooms accommodated each family with comfortable beds for all and linens were provided as well. Two and a half baths made mornings smooth when we were going somewhere. The house was extremely clean and well set up. Wireless internet was perfect for teens setting up their new electronics and a room full of toys kept the youngest of our crew completely entertained. We spent a day snowbound by a large snowstorm but the house is so large that there was plenty of space for all to spread out and play games, read, and visit. With a fresh snowfall, many enjoyed snowshoeing and exploring the next day. The lake wasn't completely frozen but would have been prefect for cross country skiing otherwise. The views are gorgeous with beautiful lakeside sunrises seen right from the house. The girls enjoyed great shopping close by at the Maine Mall in Portland as well as at many local specialty shops. The outdoor fire pit was a bonus for those that wanted to brave the cold and hang outside at night by the lake and enjoy the winter nights. The indoor fireplace was great too. There were several seating areas so people could gather in different spots doing different activities. The listing is very accurate but the photos here on VRBO don't really do it justice. I would recommend trying to post additional photos as it's a great home - you should show it off! The owners were available and responsive to the one small request we had. I would absolutely highly recommend this home and would return here again. Thank you for sharing your lovely lake house!"
