Wonderful family gathering place for all ages

  • 5 of 5

Our large family just spend a WONDERFUL long weekend at the

>farm. How exciting it was to hold the key and open the door to our

>adventure! Each of us was first impressed with the kitchen. It was

>clean and welcoming. We enjoyed that there were places to eat as

>either small or large groups. The set up flowed well, and we found

>everything we needed. The tour of the house led to lots of fun

>places! The living room was large enough for everyone to gather in-

>we held our family's bi-annual Christmas auction there. The

>bedrooms were large and well set up for growing families. They were

>clean, pleasant and private. We rented the extra bedroom, which

>opened up the third bathroom. We found that three bathrooms were

>plenty for our group.

>

>The social area was an added bonus- a pool table, lots of room for

>the children to play on the floor, separated just enough so noise

>did not interfere with the house...

>

>The barn has such potential for parties- is is beautiful, spacious

>and well lit.

>

>The deck is HUGE and was host to a night of star gazing and hot chocolate.

>

>The grassy expanse in the back provide LOTS of room for games,

>sunning, exploring and more.

>

>The pond is a perfect distance from the house- far enough so little

>children don't go there without being watched, close enough to go

>there multiple times in a day.

>

>The beach is large enough for everyone, the sand clean, the water

>fresh and clear with a gradual incline.

>

>The farm has become our family's new favorite vacation spot!

wonderfully relaxing

  • 4 of 5

My family has been renting here for 7 years and it is the highlight of our summer. Plenty of room for the kids to spread out, well stocked and the lake is perfect!

The owner, Paul, is responsive and his support staff in Maine are wonderful, we had a small issue with the hot tub this year and the maintenance men worked hard to get it fixed so we could enjoy it during our stay.

The remodeled kitchen work was needed and it is truly remarkable the difference it makes in the home, open, clean and so easy to enjoy meals with a large group.

We can not wait to come back next summer, thanks so much Paul for sharing your wonderful home!

Our Family Reunion at The Farm at Worthley Pond

  • 5 of 5

Our huge family vacationed back at The Farm this year after first renting last August. The moment I stepped into the front door I said, "We're home!" How great it felt! The bedrooms were very comfortable! We could hear the loons during the night! The pond was gorgeous and quiet...every day we would sit out on the beach and just relax by the water! Of course we made good use of the boats and raft on the property. Our host was extremely responsive to our needs. We called him for a firewood delivery and it was delivered the same day! Our family is looking forward to our third year next August!

exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We booked the farmhouse for a large family get together. The house and grounds greatly exceeded our expectations. The pictures provided do not do justice for what the house has to offer. The house is huge and offers plenty of space for everybody to be togehter, or room to go away for a few moments of peace and quiet. The yard is awesome and the pond is so big and clean. We were able to swim, kayak (we brought our own) canoe, paddle boat, play volleyball, horshoes, bocce and other lawn games while still others enjoyed the hot tub. The deck has been expanding and offers a great relaxing atmosphere. The entire area was very quiet with little to no traffic and the pond was not overly crowded with boats. All that we needed beyond food and clothing was provided by Paul. We are definitely planning on going again real soon.

Wedding week!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked The Farm for the week of the Fourth of July to have our daughter's wedding and it was absolutely the BEST experience! The accomodations are terrific. The contract is very clear what is expected of us. Everything that we needed was very handy - everything is labeled and instructions are all included with everything. We arrived on Saturday night, had the wedding on Friday and left the following Saturday morning. The wedding party all stayed there along with immediate family. It was a wedding week. I highly recommend staying here and plan on coming back if we plan a family reunion.

Relaxing lakeside vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a week in June. The weather was sunny and in the 70's. The Farm is ideal for large groups. Paul has included every imaginable recreational activity: boats, biking, golfing, fishing, pool, volleyball, badminton etc etc. From the farm we looked out on a very large lawn with a dock and beach area. A large hottub and modern BBQ made our stay very enjoyable. The property was clean and enormous. Everything was carefully labelled to help guests get the most out of their vacation. Worthley Pond is an excellent location from which to explore Central Maine. I highly recommend the Farm at Worthley Pond.
