  • A relaxing family retreat!

    "We spent a relaxing week at the Maine Retreat with our 2 kids and big dog. We loved having the yard and the woods to walk through. Walking down to the lake was a daily tradition, and we saw a beaver a couple of times. We also enjoyed the canoe - very peaceful. We really enjoyed the recommendations listed in the binder in the house, especially the Fireside Deli. I unfortunately had to work one day, and the internet access was great. So, all in all, if you need some time away (but might not get it), the Maine Retreat is a great place to go!"

  • Wonderful House!!!!

    "This house made our vacation a wonderful time... We mostly stayed indoors for this vacation due to the bitter cold weather that ran deep in the negatives, but that did not stop us from having a wonderful time. The pool area and hot tub kept the 14 of us all occupied for day and night fun. The pool table was also a nice advantage to keep from going stir crazy... The house is well laid out with good size rooms that will give you plenty of space to spread out... We rent cabins every year and this has been one of the best so far. The only problem that we had was when we went to fill the hot tub, we found that the handle on the spigot was broke and the hose that is kept in the pool area was too short to reach the hottub from the second spigot just outside the pool. Other then that our stay was delightful and no complaints.... Matti (the owner) is wonderfull to deal with and helped us out with everything we needed. She even helped us with our checkout when we found that the cold weather and the below 0 temperatures decommissioned two of our vehicles. You will not be disappointed if you chose this cabin for your vacation!"

  • An excellent place to stay --

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place has everything you could want (even a Cuisinart food processor). My husband, our three children and two spouses, and our 20-month grandchild joined in on a week at the lake and we all agreed that it’s the best lake house we’ve stayed in. We always spend a week or two on a lake each summer for the last 12 years. It’s a great house and property! The house is well maintained and nicely furnished. The beds were comfortable. My husband loved how the master bedroom was on a different wing of the house, very quiet. The common areas (dining, living, deck) are large. The deck is great and there is a well-maintained hot tub off it which we never used though it looked very inviting. You are set back from the lake, not too far. You see the lake from the house and deck and because of the way they landscaped the property you feel close. Instead of undergrowth under the trees they somehow have moss growing from the deck all of the way to the lake. It’s a magical! The property is pretty level, easy walking for the 20 month-old. There is an extensive dock and seating by the lake with a fire ring, very nice. Nice place to watch the sunset. You are pretty insulated from the neighbors. It’s quiet and secluded. We worked with Stevi Lutheran. She was marvelous in fielding our questions, etc. She’s top notch and made the rental process easy"
