Beautiful cabin on quiet pond
Really enjoyed our stay at this lovely, comfortable cabin. We were disappointed though that we were not allowed to use the wood burning fireplace on the chilly evenings. The cabin was advertised as having a fireplace so we were looking forward to that. We enjoyed paddling, seeing and hearing the loons and meeting some of the folks who have cabins nearby. Weather was terrific. Communication with the manager of the cabin was not great. I sent several messages that were not answered. Be advised that you must provide your own drinking water and the scrabbling and chewing noises you hear are mice. Despite that we had a really nice time enjoying this cabin at the lake.
We loved the cabin! We arrived and walked into a very clean cabin with everything we needed for our stay! The view of the lake was beautiful! We enjoyed the kayaks and canoe! We hiked the hill with the cross, biked, the grandkids biked and didn't have to worry about many cars! The little fire chimney outside was just enough to make samoras and the grill came in handy every evening!!! Hot water all the time! Peaceful place to sit outside and take in God's beauty!
Very happy to hear you had a wonderful stay!!
Just what the doctor ordered!
I love when you walk in the door and all you can smell is pine....it felt very "lob cabin-ish", which I LOVED. They were very good about answering texts with questions or issues that came up. We needed propane and Michelle had her boyfriend drive 45 minutes to us to drop off a few tanks. He brought his pups and stopped by to say hi for a few minutes. We did have trouble with the television but that turned out to be a blessing anyway. Netflix and Amazon Prime did not work as advertised. The Wifi couldn't support streaming them through the TV (iPads were fine though). But, like I said, we played cards and didn't miss the TV much at all. We spent most of out time at the dock, swimming, tubing and fishing. A neighbor told us there weren't many fish in the lake but I disagreed! I caught 4 large mouth bass, my kids caught 4 too (catch and release). The kayaks and canoe were great. We explored every inch of the lake. One end of the lake was very marshy (great for moose sightings I bet!). There were 2 brand new bikes in the shed available to use. The cabin was clean and very well stocked. The nearest store was about 10 minutes away so not too bad for picking up odds and ends. It was a little bit of a nuisance not being able to use the water to drink or cook with and that would be the one thing that I would change about the place if I could. That being said, I would definitely go back. I'm already thinking about 2018!
Private and relaxing, on a beautiful lake.
We LOVED this rental, and will likely return once our young kids are a few years older. The house has a lot of space. We were surprised to see a loft with an extra bed! The kitchen is stocked very well, and the appliances are great. This was the nicest washer and dryer I've ever used. The lake is incredible- very clean water, and incredibly private. Besides one small cabin next door (which wasn't occupied at all while we were there), there were no other cabins in easy view on this part of the lake. My favorite part was that the house was decorated nicely with comfortable furniture and beds.
Our only suggestion is for shades over the skylight windows, to keep the house cooler when the temperature is very high. Other than that, we were very comfortable and happy. The manager was VERY helpful. The kitchen sink faucet had a problem one afternoon, and he had a handy person in by early the next morning to fix it. Incredible service!
Make sure you go to Ralph's Cafe in Brooks and Young's Lobster Pound in Belfast. It's hard to find nice rentals with lakefront property that are also in driving distance of the ocean, which makes this one very special.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. It's very helpful when travelers offered suggestion this will definitely be passed on to the owner. Hope you had a safe trip home and will come back again soon. Michelle & Scott
Beautiful and well kept! Very clean and private. My family had a great time
Can't wait to come back again!!!
Fabulous house! Very rural area and the lake was gorgeous!
I will say this, when we were driving down the road to the lake, I was a little worried. It's very rural and we passed a few houses with zero privacy. However, when we arrived at this house we were so pleased! The house is beautiful and very well stocked and maintained. There is EVERYTHING you need. We were very lucky that nobody else was on the lake. It was us and the loons. The coastal town is a 10 minute drive away with everything you need; grocery store, hardware store, ice cream shops, etc. we drove to Acadia one day and that took us 1.5 hours, not bad at all. Would definitely go back!!
