This lake house was exactly what we were looking for. A quiet area and easy fishing for a week. The house is exactly as described and was perfect for two couples. We had an issue with the dock that was resolved by property manager and the owners were very nice and sent their apologies as well. Overall a very nice rental.

A nice place to get away from it all... With you dog!

  • 4 of 5

Pros: allows dogs! / bigger than it looks! / clean, open, and spacious floor plan for kitchen/dining & living rooms / 2 good size bedrooms w/ 1 full bed each (queen size would better support sleeping 2/bed) / nice, wide, walk up stairs to loft housing 4 twin beds (but only two twin sheet sets supplied / ample screened/glassed in porch ( but diminished air flow due to Windows blocking ½ the breeze) / water front deck and dock / simple fire pit for nightly flames...

Cons: no internet access! 😩 / Daily occurrence of ants on porch (there seems to be attempts made to deal with the problem) / poor/broken shower head needing replacement

Considerations for renters (not an issue/problem with my experience/needs): steep decline to waterfront / comfortably sleeps 6 with room for 9 if sleeping 2/full bed and the large comfy couch! 😉

Things to do: sleep in late due to the beautiful trees surrounding you (or you'd better set your alarm!) / take a boat ride into Winthrop, stroll the streets, and get some delicious ice cream! / Readfield Market is a short car ride for your needs / listen to the serenading of the crazy loons / get out and explore the lake - look for the osprey and eagle nests / or do nothing at all. 😉

Peaceful Maranacook Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Quiet, clean and private. These are really the three items that we seek when on vacation and you get all this and more at this cabin on Maranacook. Very sturdy and peaceful deck at the waters edge is a lovely bonus.
