The property was beautiful! The home was clean and the location was amazing!
We traveled from a bit of a distance with 2 kids under 3 and found the owners to be really flexible from the beginning with allowing our check in time to be moved up a bit. The home was meticulously kept and very clean, with all of the amenities we are used to in our own home. When something did come up Rob and Kathy were quick to come over and help us out. The property was beautiful and the home was much larger than I had anticipated with plenty or room. The days were warm but the nights cooled off and we were comfortable with the fans in all of the rooms. The walk to the private beach was about a ten minute walk which was also enjoyable. The beach area was perfect for kids to play and swim, as it was pretty shallow for quite some distance. There was a canoe for us to use and we're also able to put our kayaks in too. The house was about an hour to the coast which was a nice day trip. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quintessential vacation with their family! We loved it!
Fabulous country retreat
What an incredible experience it was to stay in this beautiful farmhouse and experience mother nature at her best. We had incredible walks and dreamy nights of sleep. The fields, lake and forests were sublime. The design of the house is super cute/ eclectic bohemian chic. We want to come back every year!
Wonderful land, private pond, and cool house
What a great place to vacation. We loved the pond, and the 10 minute walk through mostly beautiful forest to get there. The private beach was fun, and there was barely anyone else using the pond despite the 90 degree days we had. The kitchen was fully equipped, unlike many rentals we have done. The caretakers are awesome, and entertained my son by showing off their tractors and tipped us off to a great local hike. Only complaint, which is not of much consequence, is that when it is hot outside it is quite hot in the bedrooms given the lack of air conditioning and limited air circulation. But Porter, Maine rarely gets that hot...so not a bit worry.
We had a very special time here and have never had a more quiet stay anywhere. The beds were super comfy and the grounds and surrounding landscape are magical. If having your own private lake is for you than I highly recommend this home.
Lovely, farmers chic getaway
We had a great weekend with lots of snow and blue skies so we did some nice hikes and enjoyed the great views. The lovely decorated house is the perfect idyllic getaway. The owners are very helpful and give great hospitality.
The only thing we missed was a turntable to play the record collection.
