About Gunter Schramm

We live in Hilton Head SC. most of the year. The house for rent is dedicated for rental only and therefore has no personal clothing or other personal items in it.

Owner speaks English, German and Spanish and accepts communication in these languages.

Gunter Schramm purchased this house in 2005

Why Gunter Schramm chose Mousam Lake

This house was designed by an architect and is on one of the cleanest and most picturesque lakes in southern Maine.

What makes this house unique

Sit on your own dock and enjoy swimming, fishing, eating a lobster dinner or just watching the beautiful sunsets. Watch the loons and listen to their call at night.

The House has southern exposure and the dock will have sun most of the day.

Have great conversations at the fire pit in the evening.

Swim, kayak, canoe or use your own motorboat (no wave runners please).

Stunning property and wonderful family gathering

  • 5 of 5

The property is far greater than the pictures. The home and furnishing are first class. The garden is amazing. The dock and pond are magical. The firepit is a wonderful gathering area. Maggie and Gunter are hosts that are instant friends. We have spent many years traveling using home away and this is by far the best experience we have had to date.

quiet location, great house and dock !

  • 5 of 5

Spent the week with our daughter and her husband from Colorado. We were on the dock 24/7... Think Mimosas and bagels, cream cheese and salmon. Kids swam across the pond and kayaked all over. Paddle boards were delivered to the house. Check out the fish store and Wednesday night at Tumbledown Cafe . Live music and good seafood. Have a sweet tooth? Maggie delivered a RUM cake!! Great experience on quiet Horn Pond!!

Our favorite family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we've stayed at Maggie's Place, and we hope to come back every year! The house is beautifully appointed and maintained, and in a peaceful lovely location. Our two young daughters love playing in the shallows of the pond, swimming off the dock and kayaking around the pond. Gunter and Maggie are fantastic hosts - friendly and thoughtful. It's a perfect getaway.

A Welcoming Maine Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Maggie's Place on Horn Pond in Acton Maine is a wonderful accomodation. It is clean, cozy and restful. The location is tree shrouded making the hottest day comfortable and the water is pristine. The wading area is perfect for toddlers and the new dock a perfect gathering place for swimming, fishing or just reading in the sun. The bedrooms are quiet and have a treehouse quality that makes for a restful sleep, both at night and for an afternoon nap. The owners, have thought of every convenience from beautifully appointed rooms and a fully equipped kitchen to kayaks and a fire pit. Then there is the luxury of a full basement with laundry facilities that makes the hardest part of going home (facing dirty laundry) obsolete. Gunter and Maggie are welcoming and generous hosts. We would happily recommend Magggie's Place as a vacation destination to anyone.

A Great Week Away!

  • 5 of 5

Maggie's Place is awesome! The house is fantastic. Plenty of room, comfortable and very nicely decorated. Right on the lake with your own private dock and sandy area to swim. We used the canoe, kayaks and tubes all week long. The lake is beautiful; clean and clear. We were fortunate to see baby loons hatch the week we were there. They were nesting 25 feet off the dock. The house was a great location for us to go to Mount Washington, Portland, and Portsmouth. Maggie and Gunter are wonderful hosts!

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect vacation week for my husband and I and family! Maggie's Place is an absolute jewel. The rental is the quintessential house on a lake or in this case a pond (but in name only...it is a very large "pond"). The house is an architectural beauty, the decor is inviting, and it is all set on a picture perfect spot by the water. A little walk down the path from the house takes you to a sandy nook and crystal clear water for a swim with the little ones or to set off from in a kayak or canoe to explore. A few steps further, the dock was the perfect spot for more swimming or for just relaxation ....floating the day away in the water. Early morning coffee, evening sunsets, and a nearby nesting loon were enjoyed from here too! Did I say this rental is perfect?!? It is! Gunter and Maggie thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable. Thank you so much for sharing your little slice of heaven!

Sincerely,

Judy & Jon

Lake front on Hornpond
Car: necessary

Horn Pond was voted the most scenic lake in York county. We are an hour away from Portland Me, where you can shop, whale watch, take a ferry ride to the islands and visit the many fine restaurants and great pubs Portland is known for.

Kennebunkport, a typical New England port town, is about 45 minutes away. Have a lobster dinner and drive by George W. Bush's compound.

Portsmouth NH is about 45 minutes away. You can visit historic Strawberry Hill or take a day trip to the Shoals Islands. Also a great place to dine and peruse shops.

The charming town of Wolfeboro NH, situated on Lake Winnipesaukee, is about 30 minutes away. It claims to be the oldest resort in the USA. A fun place to browse, shop and eat.

And always come back to Maggie's place, to rest on the dock with a glass of wine or beer and watch the beautiful sunsets - and at night listen to the call of the loons which have been on this lake the last 30 years.
