Relaxing pond retreat at great cabin
A real chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. We had a great time as a family fishing, swimming, paddle boarding, and hiking. The kids loved feeding the chickens and pigs from the driveway everyday. The view of the bluff is amazing.
Kelly and Frank are wonderful hosts. The cabin had plenty of space for our family of 5 and Golden Retriever. The kitchen is equipped with all you need (including some spices/coffee filters). Grocery stores are either 20 or 30 min away. There is a gas grill and fantastic fire pit.
My husband fished everyday on spinning/fly gear and caught small mouth bass, pickerel, sunfish, and perch.
Bring bug spray as the mosquitos/horeseflies are relentless. This has been a bad year for them everywhere though! Not unique to this spot. They do have tiki torches/candles there.
We had a great stay and would highly recommend this cabin.
Great property on nice lake
Such a great cabin on a really nice lot. The cabin's high ceiling makes it feel spacious, the loft was perfect for our daughter as well as when her cousin did a sleepover a couple of nights. The cabin sits off the lake about 30 yards, which creates such a nice play area when not swimming. Located on a cove part of the lake so boat traffic was obsolete, perfect for swimming, floating, and teaching my 6yr old how to canoe. Not a busy lake anyway and we were there for the fourth. Maybe 90 minutes to Acadia/BarHarbor and 25 minutes to Bangor/15min to Brewer. Normally on our annual visits to Maine, we're running here and there, but this year we stayed put more and enjoyed the lake, my sunburn is proof! The opposite side of the lake is bluff/hill which you can climb, and the top provides a gorgeous view of the lake and surrounding area.
FYI - Cell service for Verizon is an issue, not the owner's fault, but that turned out to be a blessing- a real vacation from work!
Our 2nd time staying at this property. Kelly and Frank have done a great job with this little cabin in the woods, nice and private, relaxing and close enough to anything you want to do. Thanks again, I’m sure we will be back again.
Awesome location and super clean
Great location on the water with a dock for fishing and a fire pit. I would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.
Review of Eddington place
The scene from the cabin was beautiful. The bed was extremely comfortable. The layout of the house was nice. The place was obviously not checked thoroughly for cleanliness. It was aadvertised to have a fireplace. No fireplace. The stove was extremely grimy with grease on top gas burners. My husband told management, but he offered no comment. I ended up cleaning it as good as possible with wash rag and dishwashing liquid. The inside cup of washing machine had not been cleaned in many months. It was drizzling rain when we arrived, but porch had not been swept or cleaned. I did sweep it off before I left. I tried to leave the house in much better shape than I found it. It really is a beautiful place, and has so much potential.. They just need to capitalize on the beauty of the place by taking extra care to spruce it up. Make the first view of the house stunning by sweeping and mopping the porch and wiping down the outside wall. Inspect rental to make sure it is thoroughly clean. Elbow grease and an eye for detail would make this place worthy of a higher priced rental. I have to say that Kelly was very nice and she responded to our calls in a timely fashion.
Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. I am so sorry to hear that you didn’t find the rental up to your standards. We have been renting for 7 years and have never had anyone complain about the cleanliness of the rental. I want to assure you that I personally go in after each renter leaves to deep clean the cabin. I change linens, sweep, vacuum, mop etc. inside and out. I take a lot of pride in our rental, and I do feel bad that you were not happy. I am sorry about the misunderstanding about the fireplace. On the listing I had outdoor fireplace. I have since removed this to avoid any further confusion.
Amazing place. A perfect getaway from reality.
