Disappointed on Moose Pond
My husband and I have been renting cabins/villas for 23 years, so we have a great deal of experience. Unfortunately, this was not a good experience for us. We both like to cook and would have preferred more cooking utensils, e.g., pots and pans, a working can opener, and a less dangerous stove. My husband tried to light it for the first time and burned the hairs off his forearm. We have a gas stove at home, so we know how to use them. We understand that this rental was "pet friendly," but that doesn't mean that it should smell like a wet dog and that dog hair was on the floor, as well as in the sheets. The couch also smelled. Although we were disappointed with the cabin, we did, however, enjoy the kayaks and were out on the lake every morning.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were in the area for our son's wedding, and are a larger than average family with six children-our now married son being 23 who stayed with us for a few nights, to our 9 year old. There were enough beds for everyone and those beds were comfortable. We stayed a week before the wedding, and the week after. We appreciated very much the kayaks and canoe. We loved lake/nature sounds, and the porch and swings. Our children enjoyed trying to fish, as that is something we don't get to try often. My 17 year old son especially found the opportunity a plus. We were never sure how to use the gas oven, so didn't. Beautiful stove, but must admit to not feeling confident in using it. We weren't all that crazy about the beach/swim area. Even our dog loved cabin life, so thank you for allowing her to come with us. She liked her "boy" taking her out in the kayak, and resting on the porch watching the lake. We enjoyed hiking on a Brownfield trail, a trip to Bar Harbor, and a trip to Star Island via ferry out of Portsmouth. We also enjoyed exploring Fryburg a bit, and spent time in Bridgton too...especially at the laundromat. LOL. Thank you for the use of your home. Blessings.

Congratulations on your son's wedding and so glad all of you had such a good time. Quality family time is priceless!
Beautiful cabin, very responsive owners!
We enjoyed our stay immensely. The water was high enough to leave our boat at the dock, but it wasn't deep enough to swim on the frontage (and was too weedy to be safe). Nevertheless, there is a small public beach a short walk away with nice folks and safe waters for the children. The cabin itself was stocked with all you would need for a week or two stay, minus food of course. It is relatively small, but certainly sleeps 8 with ease. There's even things there for the family to do if it rains or snows (board games, card games, movies, books). The Holdens were very responsive to my questions, and I never felt ignored or overlooked. For anglers, I would say it was a bit disappointing, in that we fished all week on Moose pond and came up ALMOST empty. I understand from locals that there are derbies or tournaments fished there. However, this is not the only 'fishin hole' nearby, so we struck gold elsewhere on the last night of our stay. Overall, I'd do it again in a heartbeat!
Relaxing log cabin on Moose Pond
This wonderful log cabin was exactly as advertised and it was absolutely perfect! The house is clean, beautifully decorated and the layout is great. The kitchen has a nice Viking stove with two ovens and a very clean empty refrigerator ready to use. The screened in porch is wonderful for eating out, playing games and just relaxing in the air chairs.The lakeside location and having the four kayaks, life vests and a canoe available were a huge selling point when I was looking for a rental. We had a wonderful time kayaking on Moose Pond, hiking nearby Pleasant Mountain and having campfires in the fire pit at night. The Campfire Grill restaurant in Bridgton was minutes away and has a great menu. My family and two little dogs had a great vacation! Would definitely rent again!
So glad you had such a great time! Would love to have you back anytime. Enjoy the rest of your summer. 😊�
Beautiful property. Loved kayaking around the pond.
So glad you had a great time! 😊�
Cozy cabin by Moose.Pond
We enjoyed our stay at this cabin very much! It was so wonderful to have the kayaks and canoe available. We paddled and explored the pond most days we were there. The cabin has all the things you need on the kitchen and bath. Not having to bring linens was another plus.
The pond is great for fishing. It is very convenient to have the access point just up the road. There was a swimming area within walking distance too.
The location is wonderful. Easy to get to Bridgton or Fryeburg for restaurants and other things to do. Plenty of great hiking in the area, we went up Hawk Mountain, Jockeys Cap and Pleasant Mountain.
I so enjoyed the screened in porch and the firepit. Nice to take a little snooze in the air chairs.
Laurie is very responsive to question.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay!
