We enjoyed our stay and our time in Vassalboro
This house on 3 Mile Pond is very nice and comfortable. View of the lake from the deck is beautiful. Used the kayaks to enjoy the lake. Location is great as it is close to many attractions, including the mid-coast. Will definitely return.
Spacious both inside and out!
We had a great stay and Julie was very quick to reply to all of our questions. We were fortunate to have good weather for all but one day and the lake and dock were great for both swimming and paddling the kayaks and canoe. The lake was surprisingly quiet at night (except for the loons!) even though there are a number of cottages. And there was plenty of space inside for four adults and a 4 year old during the one rainy day. The good collection of children's books and movies were a help too! I would absolutely rent Bradbury Cottage again!
Thank you for your very thoughtful review. Since this is our first entire summer of renting our cottage it is very helpful to get feedback. Your family is certainly welcome back anytime.
We are lucky that the owners rent it out and don't just instead live there!
My family and I try to see family up in Vassalboro & Winslow every year, and earlier this year when we looked we were unable to find a cabin by the lake for our annual Memorial Day weekend getaway. After speaking with the owners of this property, we decided to wait an extra month and go at the end of June towards July. It was well worth the wait, being that this place is less of a cabin by the lake and more of a spacious lake home. Using the GPS to get there did not work on Google but instead worked with Waze (Waze is a subsidiary of Google.. Go figure).
We used the canoe a few times and went out with my almost 3 year old son and he loved it (USCG approved lifevest for the little guy that we bought and there were multiple life jackets on site provided by the owners). As a city dweller, the only part about this place that we didn't enjoy was that there was no wifi present and 4gLTE service was spotty. It's okay though, we didn't die, and you won't either without the wifi. Come to think of it, it was nice being able to enjoy nature without the distractions. The owners are very responsive and respectful of privacy, and overall very gracious hosts. Don't forget to ask for the list of rules and precautions before you book to make sure you'll be able to abide by them.
If you do book a stay there, you'll most certainly get your money's worth! Enjoy what Maine has to offer with a beautiful view!
Thank you for the wonderful review. We are very glad that you had a great time and we would enjoy having you back. Our kids have been telling us for years to get WiFi but we really love not having it out there. Hope your trip home was pleasant.
Fantastic cottage that is right on the water. Perfect for a quiet getaway. Amazing view of the water from their deck that corresponds perfectly with a glass of wine or a morning cup of coffee. The owners are super accommodating and promptly answer any questions. Absolutely planning on returning!
Thank you for your very kind review. Please know that you are welcome back anytime.
This is a great property such a great open floor plan and plenty of room to relax and has a beautiful view of the water. So peaceful sitting on the deck in the morning with coffee. Would highly recommend, and will definitely return .
Thank you for your lovely review. You were wonderful guests and we would be honored to have you return.

This is a beautiful, relaxing home to enjoy the views, your friends & family, peace & quiet.
Two of us, friends who knit, stayed here to be near the Common Ground fair in Unity, Maine this past week. Several comfortable places to relax. We each had a space. We did move some lighting around to get good light to knit at night but it was easily put back before we left. Our GPS took us around the 'neighborhood' and we had to call to find specific house but that is sometimes what happens when you 'get away...' Both owners were quick to respond to our questions & messages, so we knew if we needed help we would get it. Highly recommend.
Thank you for the great review especially since we are new at this and your suggestions are very helpful.
