Great Family Vacation
We had a wonderful stay at Loon's Rest this summer. The rental house was clean, spacious, private, and had all the "comforts of home". Even though the lake level was low this year (not much snow this past winter and not much rain this summer), the grand kids still had lots of fun catching fish off the dock and chasing frogs at the end of the beach. The lake was perfect for the kids first time tubing behind a boat...they also loved roasting marshmallows over the fire-pit.
Plenty of golfing nearby and some great farm stands and restaurants in the surrounding towns of Winthrop and Monmouth.
This was a very enjoyable family vacation; great weather, great place to stay, and a great time had by all!
The Hinds Family
Thanks for your kind thoughts. It was a very low snow fall this past winter, so the lake level was lower than normal to start and the lack of rain fall did add to the lower than normal lake level, but even with that decreased water level, the clarity and quality of water was still very good and the fishing, swimming and boating was still great. Glad you and the family had a great summer vacation time.
Perfect Maine Vacation
What a wonderful house and location! The house had all we needed, plus some extras like water toys and puzzles that our girls enjoyed playing with. The shallow, sandy beach area was great for the kids. We enjoyed the deck, rising early to catch a beautiful sunrise on the dock, and canoeing to the big island for a little exploring. The location was great for an ocean day trip to Reid State Park (beautiful), hiking Monument Hill Trail in Leeds, and picking berries at many of the local raspberry and blueberry farms. The home has great seclusion, yet is not far at all from many amenities. We hope to be back!
Fantastic Vacation Rental
I would highly recommend this vacation rental. The property is very private and peaceful. The rental is great for younger children. The lake is very quiet and easy to navigate with the kayaks and canoe provided with the rental. Make sure to explore the big island in the middle of the lake. The property has easy access to a Hannaford grocery store right in Winthrop. Make sure to visit Fast Eddies Drive In restaurant and the quaint town of Hallowell. Brad is a fantastic host who is always available to help in any way necessary. We have stayed here two years in a row and hope to come back!
Summer in Maine
We have rented this property three times and always enjoy our time. It is a beautiful location with privacy and comfort. The water front is shallow, but with a sandy bottom. We had a great time and would rent again. Brad is great to work with and really cares about providing good customer service.
Great location! Perfect shallow and private beach area for kids. House had plenty of room for 8 people and was in a private location. The lake is quiet and fun to putt or paddle on. We had a great time.
Great Family Vacation
We had a wonderful vacation! The private sandy beach was perfect for our children (2,4). This house is very private and the large backyard is great for outdoor family activities. The kayaks and canoe were nice for exploring the lake. Big Island is a must see. The kids enjoyed the beach and walking trails on the island. The house was very well stocked with everything we needed and more. Thanks again for a great week!
