thank goodness for the beautiful view that made up for the house

  • 3 of 5

House was nice on outside, but inside was old, dark and dingy. Definitely needs to be a bit updated or something. The 10 minute put together of the shower was interesting and very small, but clean. The hot tub was awesome, and in a great location of the house under the trees. It was a good thing we didn't buy much food to cook, there wasn't much of utensils to use, and the toaster did not work. Went to use the canoe and a seat was broken, so could'nt use it, did take the paddle boat out, that was good. It smelled musty when we first got there, which comes with older places but fine after windows were open and door; there was a window fan and a window Air Conditioner. Stairs were kinda sketchy, so we didn't take our luggage up. Attempted to build a fire outside, but wood was damp and not the kind of wood to cook marshmallows over.

Bird droppings on the chairs, they could have been covered.

If you have children this would be suitable, but for mid 50 yr olds and spending a day in Portland then wanting to come back and chill to a fire or just watch a little TV while its raining at night, was not happening. The dog loved everything. But the location and beauty surrounding helped immensely. Neighbors are too close, glad we were the only ones. The owner was very nice though.

Charming cabin by the lake! A gorgeous spot!

  • 5 of 5

This place was such a wonderful find! Only 25 minutes from downtown Portland, but it feels worlds away. The lake is absolutely beautiful and the house is incredibly charming and old-fashioned. I would just warn anyone who has problems walking that there is only a bathroom on the first floor and I could imagine this stairwell being tricky for people with balance problems. However, no one in our group fell into this category and we were all in love with this place. We swam in the lake, enjoyed the hot tub, grilled, and ate every meal outside at the picnic table. All in all, an absolutely wonderful place for a getaway. Highly recommend!

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage and its amenities. Everything we needed was provided - even lots of fish to catch in the lake! There were games, toys and DVDs available for kids and comfortable outside seating available for all. I particularly enjoyed having the dock upon which to read my book, while my husband and teen-aged daughter kayaked, canoed, and fished upon the lake. One must be careful when walking from the cottage to the lake, as there are lots of tree roots that can be tripped over. We hope to return for a longer stay in the future.

Cool place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for my wife and I, along with our 2 dogs. It's located directly between Portland and the Sebago Lake region, and has pretty easy drives to stores and restaurants, as well as hiking trails and nature areas. The cabin itself is a bit rustic and not overly large, so it's probably not ideal for those who are used to staying at the Waldorf-Astoria, but it was pretty clean and well maintained. The hot tub was also a really neat touch. The cabin was well stocked with pots/pans/silverware, and there is a nice grill that worked well. The only small thing I would point out is the shower stall isn't ideal for a taller/larger man, but at 6'3, I got by OK once I got used to it. The lake is gorgeous and clean, and the week we were there, the neighbors weren't around much so it was very peaceful and quiet. The sunrises were fantastic, and the loons were near the dock almost every morning. There was an occasional water skier or jet-ski going around, but I didn't find them to obnoxious or disturbing. I would definately recommend this place for couples or small families who don't mind nature and want an affordable location near the fantastic city of Portland.

Great Get-Away Spot

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was an excellent vacation spot for my partner and I. It is right by the lake and we had lots of privacy (in mid-June). Great for kayaking, sitting on the dock watching the loons, and the hot tub in the back. It was also close enough to Portland that we could have dinner in the city when we didn't want to cook. The building itself is rustic, but the kitchen and bath are well-equipped for vacation use. Unlike bland corporate rentals, this cottage definitely had a family-owned touch and the owner was nicely responsive when we had questions.
