About Chris Hallweaver

We built our Log Home and moved to Saddleback Lake in June of 1995 and spent two glorious years cementing our love for everything Rangeley, Maine. Our three kids are now in college and we rent our home to help with tuition bills.

We are fortunate to have one of the best rentals in all of Rangeley. If your family values peace and quiet and time on a quiet motor-free lake then please plan your vacation today.

Why Chris Hallweaver chose Rangeley

Rangeley is a true 4-season resort area. One of the few places that has it all, mountains, lakes and forests. Wildlife abounds around Saddleback Lake and it is just the perfect place to spend some quality family time.

Your quintessential Maine experience.

Such a relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Although the weather was a bit rainy and chilly, we still had a great time. Great place to spend with family, play some older games and just sit back and relax.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the extremely comfortable and beautiful cabin, the pristine yard and the wonderful, private beach! We can't wait to go back! This cabin is truly a gem...and certainly the nicest one we've stayed at on Saddleback Lake, with incredibly friendly owners!

Wonderful log cabin, the stuff dreams are made of !

  • 5 of 5

Truly stunning place, wonderful cabin, log fire was epic, enjoyed cooking on the outdoor fire pit, we hiked the Saddleback Mountain trail which was challenging but well worth the rewards ! Kayaked, fished, walked, ran and played games with the family, cooked s'mores on the open fire. ! What a place !!!!

Absolutely beautiful home and piece of property.

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded our expectations. Everything was perfect about it. You feel very sucluded but only a short drive to downtown. We brought our 3 year old black lab with us and he loved the lake. Our 3 kids enjoyed the kayaks, canoes and swimming in the lake. If we visit Maine again we will definitely stay here!

We stayed for eight nights beginning Sept. 22, 2016. From the time we pulled down the private drive and saw the cabin setting and the lake we were all ecstatic. We were four adults in 50’s and 60s. The cabin is awesome. For days we were all enjoying and discovering the collection of your decorations and trinkets about the cabin. We even used the kitchen aid mixer to make icing for a birthday cake. There is a local IGA Supermarket we shopped at; very convenient. We picked from the garden on the property and made fried green tomatoes, squash and the beans we cooked up with the celery salt and spices on hand in the cabin were superb. We used the canoes, kayaks and the row boat from Saddleback Lake Lodge and the guys caught (first day out) a 16.5 inch trout. We had the entire lake to ourselves during the whole visit. Activities: Drove to Rangeley State Park and on the road into the park saw a moose, visited Coos Canyon, Height of Land, Smalls Falls, drove down Saddleback Mountain Road about 6:15 pm saw a moose in the middle of the road. Also, during our visit saw a red tail fox, loons, deer, turkeys, kingfishers, bald eagle and more. We never turned the TV on once. We played cards, star gazed, read, fished, fished and fished again. The Red Onion in town has delicious pizza; we ate in and took one to go. It was perfect! A big thank you to Chris and Betsy for sharing your wonderful home with us!
