  • Want to get away....this is the place.

    "My girlfriend and I arrived earlier than expected, but the owner was very flexible and let us settle in upon arrival. The cabin was clean (we stayed in Brownie), up-to-date and very cozy. The river is literally in your backyard so it is impossible to not relax. There is a large lake and trails near by with great hiking. By the back next to the river is a fire pit -- which made the each night even more great! The main thing I'd have to say about our experience are the amazing views of the river and side of the mountain -- truly amazing! The owner is great and made our stay awesome. Highly recommend considering this if you are looking to get away! Mike"

  • 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!"

  • 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"
