  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Spencer View. Everything here is as advertised and described in the listing. This is a great "base" to explore the area or just hang at the lake, and is set up for inside entertainment if the weather doesn't cooperate. Specific to the property- The water is shallow in the cove, which makes it great for kids and kayaking in and out. Lily Bay State Park is nearby for boat ramp access. The house is comfortable and well equipped. We grilled and cooked most of our meals at the house without any issues. The deer feeder is a nice touch that our kids loved and ensures wildlife viewing. Kim contacted us immediately upon reservation and was available as needed throughout our visit to ensure a great visit. If you are a nature lover this is a great place to stay.

Honeymoon Paradise

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent our honeymoon here at Spencer View! We stayed for a full week, and by the end of the week, it felt so much like home that it was hard to leave. The home itself was beautiful, and comfortable, and we were supplied with everything we needed to make the trip convenient (pots, pans, etc.) We were there in the winter, so the frozen lake was a constant host to several families of deer...which was a wonderful sight to wake up to in the morning. The area that is Moosehead Lake has become one of my favorite places, and knowing we got to come "home" to such a comfortable and cozy place after each day's adventures was a pleasure. The only reason I am giving this review a 4 star is because of the location with relation to the main road and the season in which we went...what I mean is, we went in the winter, so the dirt road that it is located on was slow-going. It felt like it took so long to get on the main road into town. I'm sure in the summer/whenever there isn't 3 feet of snow on the ground, this would be different. This was my only complaint, however.

Our Second Visit Was Even Better Than the First!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year celebrating our somewhat belated Christmas at Spencer's View. It was like returning home. We arrived to find the neighbor kindly sanding the driveway as icy conditions were prevalent throughout the state. Despite driving winds, below zero windchill factors and even a short power outage- we were warm and cozy!! Again we skied at Squaw with it's unbelievable views and we added dog sledding to our adventures on a ride with Mark and Ashley Patterson in Shirley- just down the road a bit. It was a trip of very special memories with our 4 grown children and two spouses. The house afforded us plenty of room. There was amble room to enjoy evenings gathered around the dining room table and recount the days events before adjoining to the comfy couches around the fire and a late night trip to star gaze in the hot tub. Of course, once again one of our favorite past times was watching the deer in the yard as we sipped morning coffee. Another magical, memory making Christmas. We are dreaming of our return!!

Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a wonderful rental in the beautiful area around Moosehead Lake! Everything is in the house that you will need to have a fantastic vacation. It was secluded in the woods and a wonderful setting on the bay. We used the kayaks available to us and it was great paddling on the lake. Huge washer and dryer available too! It was nice to have the owner call to check in twice to see if everything was OK! Lots of wonderful hikes in the area and good meals too. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook numerous meals. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the deck with visits by the ducks every day! We did see numerous deer in the yard but no moose.

Amenities should be in working and safe order.

  • 2 of 5

We have spent many vacations on Moosehead Lake and unfortunately this rental was disappointing. Sure the setting is quiet and Moosehead Lake is beautiful . The log cabin is quite nice and cozy especially with a fire in the fireplace. However for the money the amenities listed should be working. The washing machine was full of water and when I questioned the owner he said it would be repaired by Tuesday. That never happened. The gas grill was unuseable. Besides being so dirty that you could not see the burners there were large holes in the metal bottom of the grill. Some one should spring for a new grill. The grill sits on a wood porch making using it dangerous. The charcoal grill listed as an alternative to the gas grill also had holes in the bottom. Useable but the gas would have been preferable. The game room in the cellar is an is a cold damp cellar which is not inviting especially since you could smell the stale water sitting in the broken washing machine.

It is a nice cabin but somethings need replacement and /or repair. I would not return to Spencer View since there are many better rentals available on Moosehead Lake. In this case you do not get what you pay for.

Owner's Response: We appreciate this review and value all input and suggestions that enable us to focus our efforts on issues that ensure an exceptional rental experience and value. The issues that this group encountered are not acceptable to us, but we do not feel they represent the typical rental experience at Spencer View. When informed of the washer problem, we had a service person there within a couple days. Unfortunately, it was unrepairable and the new replacement Maytag machine could not be delivered and installed for approximately another week. I apologize again for the inconvenience. The gas grill has been replaced with a much newer model and cleaning it now is now a regular part of the changeover process. The charcoal grill, as confirmed during last week’s inspection, is past its useful life and was discarded. The dehumidifier in the basement game and exercise area normally keeps it dry and comfortable and may not have been turned on. We have never been content to rest on our laurels, despite consistently enthusiastic renter comments and five-star reviews. We have made, and will continue to make, substantial investments in time and money on improvements, upgrades, and the replacement of worn or outdated items. We will continue to respond as quickly as possible to issues, as we are made aware of them, utilizing when required, highly qualified area contractors and technicians.

Spencer View is absolutely breath taking

  • 5 of 5

My family spent the week at Spencer View 7/9-7/16. It was amazing from the time that we came over the hill in Greenville and saw the lake. It was absolutely beautiful. We got there a little early so we stopped in Greenville. Greenville was such a quaint and charming little town with the nicest people. When we arrived at the house, we were blown away by the atmosphere and the decor of the cabin. It was so comfortable, clean, spacious and homey. The kids loved the game room down stairs. (So did the adults)!! The house is perfect in every way! We loved spending time on the lake and kayaking. The sunsets are picturesque from the house and out on the kayaks. The chipmunks were the cutest little things and would come up and get food. We did have a deer that came and visited us a couple times a day. We named her Speckles. She would come right up and eat out of your hand. We saw 14 moose while there. We loved going out at dusk to moose watch. We did not have to go far!!! Then came back for a soak in the hot tub, bonfire in the fire pit and late night ping pong & pool games. The owner covered everything possible to see and do. The recommendations were great. We cannot wait to go back again and would love to experience it in the winter. Spencer View is perfect. Completely exceeded any expectations that we had. Thank you!!!
