House was good size but upon arrival found the house very cold. After contacting the owner he stated we needed to “dress appropriately” and that they like it colder. If renting a home out to the public I think the owner should be more accommodating for people who like it above 60 degrees inside. Make sure you read everything. There is about a 5-6 page camp guide/manual. House is not sound proof at all. If going with big group bring ear plugs because you can hear everything. Place was as described but will never rent there again. Too overpriced for what you get.

Owner's Response: I am truly sorry that your stay did not meet your expectations or the level of satisfaction found by the great majority of our renters. This is a genuine log home, and as such, does take a couple hours to come up to temperature in the winter months after it has been unoccupied for a few days. However, the relatively new oil fired forced hot air heating system will maintain temperatures in the recommended mid to upper sixties with a corresponding thermostat setting even during an extreme cold stretch like we just had. Although we ask that it be used primarily for ambiance and not a major heating source, there is also a large wood fireplace in the great room. I guess I had always assumed that people who reserve at a lakeside log home in the northern Maine Highlands in mid-winter do not expect to be walking around the house in short sleeved t-shirts. I will, however, add the mention of our winter dress recommendation, that is in the manual, to the property description. Lastly, I can't help wonder if this review would have been more favorable if I had not penalized this group for exceeding the contracted number of guests and the maximum occupancy level.

Great Maine Deluxe Log Cabin Experience!

  • 4 of 5

The home sleeps many, and our group had a great, relaxing and fun filled weekend. Exactly what we hoped. Once you light a fire in the ginormous stone fireplace you will not want to leave the comfy living room. But the environment around Spencer View is breathtakingly gorgeous. The house looks out at Big Spencer Mountain, and is situated at a quiet area of beautiful Moosehead Lake. We played hours of billiards, board games, cards, and jumped in the hot tub under the stars. Kim was an excellent host - very communicative, very professional. We will try and return year after year.

This cabin is exactly what we expected for a Christmas/NewYears celebration. Despite the harsh weather we had these 10 days it was truly a magical experience.

We have been to Maine three times since moving to the NY area 2 years ago, and have been dreaming of seeing Moose since day one. We were lucky to have encountered not one but 10 of them on this visit. There was plenty of snow this trip! We were able to take the kids skiing for the first time to the ski resort at Big Squaw. The rates were reasonable and the kids had private lessons. It was so cold but the hot cocoa and soup sold at the indoor food counter warms you up.

The cabin itself was almost perfect. Again, we had very harsh temperatures while we were there so it was a little cold and took a while to warm up. There is one TV in the living room with cable. The kids enjoyed playing pool, foosball, and ping pong in the basement (most know the struggle to keep an 11 and 13 year old entertained without electronics but not one time did they complain!). The kitchen is stocked with all the necessary items to cook all your meals. The refrigerator is a little small and we had to remove the ice trays to hold all the food we had purchased for the trip, but it was no inconvenience to us at all. The washer and dryer were utilized and convenient to dry our wet clothes after playing outside.

I would recommend this cabin. It sits right above the lake. We were lucky enough to see Deer, Wolves, Foxes and other wildlife while on our visit. The care taker is very attentive and made sure our drive was plowed daily. The town is majestic. It has cute little stores to buy all the souvenirs you need.

Overall I would say this is a perfect rustic place to spend your holidays! We had a white Christmas the cabin was decorated for us with a small tree and a couple of well placed items. It was a trip to remember but if going there in the winter bring your flannel sheets they saved us! Oh and we had our fury friends with us and they loved it just don't let them out alone (the warning we were given by the caretaker cause of the wildlife).

All good things are wild and free

  • 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.
