About Karee Rhoades

I was very lucky to have grown up in this home. I spent every summer outside swimming and water skiing. A few years ago I did a complete renovation/remodel which opened up the living space and added modern features. This is our family vacation home and we care for it to maintain it for the future generations to enjoy.

Karee Rhoades purchased this house in 1976

Why Karee Rhoades chose Casco

This is our vacation home and the home I grew up in. Beautiful inside and out, it is wonderful because it is not an investment property, it is our special spot for making family memories. When we are unable to be here, we are happy to share it with families who will also enjoy it and care for it the way we do. This is more of a lake house than a camp. If you are more into comfort/beach house rather than woodsy roughing it, then this is your spot.

The open floor plan with large walk out deck to Pleasant Lake is perfect for spending time with family in a comfortable setting. Most of my guests have been grandparents spending time with grown children and grandchildren or families with young children as I have lots of baby and kid gear available to use. The house is perfect for this type of relaxing vacation.

What makes this house unique

Waterfront Property with steps into sandy beach. Private dock with boat slip or mooring is available. Large deck with gas grill. Walking distance to an ice cream shop & variety store.

What a week!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a glorious week at this home with another family and had such a wonderful time.

The weather was perfect, which allowed us to take advantage of the deck, the yard, and access to Pleasant Lake--we swam, floated, fished, paddle boarded, canoed, and kayaked the days away drinking in the vista from the property and the quiteness of the lake.

Waking up to the sunrise over the lake was a joy each morning. The kitchen and downstaris in general allowed for the constant view you see in the pictures, a wonderful reminder that you're on vacation.

Karee was wonderful to work with--accessbile, attentive, and responsive throughout the whole process. She has provided a wonderful home to spend a week in with many necessities thought of and provided for.

Thank you for sharing your home with us!! This was the longest week ever--in the best possible way :)

Wonderful stay in a beautiful lakeside home

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed with another family who also had young children. This was the perfect spot for our families. The children, ages 3-6, had endless entertainment with the closets and drawers full of toys, games, movies and books. The lake was gorgeous with a nearby raft to swim to. The house had all the amenities we could ask for and Karee was super helpful with all our questions. It was fantastic week!

Our wonderful family reunion at The Lake House on Beautiful Pleasant Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at The Lake House on Pleasant Lake. It was a wonderful week . The house is beautifully decorated. and comfortable, kitchen is so well stocked, there wasn't anything more you could want or need. Lake is beautiful and Crystal clear. All kinds of tubes, floats, noodles for fun in the water. Enjoyed relaxing on the decks and taking our meals out there. Karee is so helpful with any info about area, boat rentals or any question you might have. We all loved everything and left with treasured memories. Would like to spend time there again.

Magical Place for a reunion/vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The Lake House is a beautiful home in a quiet village setting which sits on Pleasant Lake. The views from the house and patios are breathtaking. The quietness of the entire setting is lovely, only occasionally interrupted by the sound of the loons. It was a perfect location for our cousin reunion. We came from Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine.

Cool weather and early morning showers allowed us to "nest" in the amazing comfort of the living room while soaking up the ever changing views of the lake from picture perfect calm to soft breezes with ripples on the lake and much faster currents with the winds and showers. The modern kitchen is wonderfully equipped with just about everything you can imagine needing, including spices, and also has that amazing view of the lake!

All four bedrooms have great mattresses and good storage so we could unpack and feel at home. We slept soundly and loved to wake to the sound of the loons.

The area offered us enough to do for our daily adventures, but we always looked forward to heading back to the Lake House to relax and catch up with each others' goings-on over the last year, play games and share lots of laughter.

Karee and Mike were very responsive to any questions that we had and their Lake House binder was a great resource about the area.

We all truly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this magical place as a get-away or reunion setting. Thank you, Karee and Mike for sharing your Magical Lake House and its amazing views!
