Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

Pete was amazing! Upon arrival he was able to show us around the house and give us background information on the home. The house had more than what we needed; it was extremely accommodating. It was organized beyond belief. The upstairs kitchen is gorgeous and innovative. My family had the best time and we look forward to staying here again next year. Not to mention the fishing was great for anyone that is interested. Pete has the best hospitality and makes himself available at all time. I can’t thank him enough!

Stay here and you will not be disappointed!!

Pictures do not give house justice!

  • 5 of 5

We Booked here to be a close ride to Portland for a Girls weekend- and just wow. We intended on going out more, but wanted to hang out on the porch and take in the views, the house was just gorgeous. We didn’t plan on cooking, as many houses have limited supplies and aren’t adequate, but we regret not planning to cook as the kitchen was huge and had anything we would have needed. Owners took so much pride in their home and were able to give some in our group a tour which helped explain some of the decor and gave us all a better respect and appreciation for the home. Would recommend to those who are looking for a quiet retreat as you are in the middle of the woods but also looking for city day trips as Portland was not far away. FYI There is no AC, but if you leave the windows open the house cools down

Wonderful week! :) We're already planning our next trip to Simonson Lakeside! :)

  • 5 of 5

Simonson Lakeside was an absolutely ideal set up for our visit to Maine. The main level great room with the amazing view of Highland Lake was spacious, beautiful, well equipped, and very "homey"! The downstairs was also well equipped with more than we ever needed, and offered another whole living space for our family! The grounds were absolutely beautiful, with Lake, gardens, decks, swing, flowers, and wildlife galore! We were blessed with great weather to enjoy both inside and out...perfect for our family! Location was very private, yet close enough to civilization to grab groceries and/or explore beautiful Maine! Thank you, Simonson family, for sharing the wonderful gift of your Lakeside definitely reflects the love of your family! :) Lord willing, we will make the trek back across the country, from Coast to Coast, to visit again!!! It was MORE than worth it!!! ;)

Perfection a stone's throw away from Portland

  • 5 of 5

Five Stars, plain and simple. Usually I split reviews between "the good" and "the bad"; but in this case, everything was good, great, or amazing!

The pictures do not do this lakeside gem justice, as the house itself is in mint condition and is gorgeous. We spent hours watching loons swim and hunt in the lake, enjoyed the lovely pine-scented breeze, and generally found it hard to leave the fire-side in order to go to Portland for dinners. The big city is close (though Lyft/Uber are still a bit of a struggle) and getting in and out by car was not a problem at all. The area is quiet and gorgeous, and I wouldn't hesitate to rent this house again. Finally, the owner and his brother were extremely helpful in getting in, finding nearby amenities, and getting checked-out. All in all, a real find -- enjoy it!

Perfect stay for our large group!

  • 5 of 5

With 8 of us up for a college graduation, this couldn’t have been a more perfect base for us! Loads of room, well equipped in every area, and super clean! But the best part is when you walk through the door to the remarkable view-as if you’re sitting right over the lake! Thank you for providing a wonderful place to celebrate our exciting weekend!
