At the downward edge of the lawn relax on the wooden picnic deck with a glider for quiet, relaxing views of the water. Take a walk on the path to the waters edge and dock. (The picnic area and dock are shared with a second townhouse.)

Our family has been to Gordon's 4 or5 times now and are never disappointed. The house is very welcoming and very well kept. It's very clean and has everything but groceries and someone to cook them! Quite and very comfortable. Close to town. Had another wonderful vacation. Would recommend to anyone.

Fun weekend with family

  • 4 of 5

We rented this residence for a week in mid August and had a wonderful trip. The house is located on a nice stretch of water with beautiful views out the back. The rooms were clean, had plenty of space, and accommodated a family of six quite easily. We enjoyed the high ceiling living room and large windows. The kitchen was well equipped too. The home was centrally located for easy day trips to Acadia, Old Orchard Beach and other charming waterfront towns.

Great Location and House

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week long stay with our family of 4 and my SIL and her husband. The 6 of us were very comfortable in the house. It has plenty of room for privacy but a living area comfortable enough to accommodate all 6 of us. The house was clean and had everything we needed for the stay. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking (pots, pans, knives, etc). I greatly appreciated that the house is nicely decorated but isn't cluttered so there is plenty of room for your stuff without it getting lost in a sea of knickknacks.

The town is a comfortable and easy walk and the grocery store is a short drive away. We enjoyed being a little out of town on the lake where it was quiet and peaceful. The lake is wonderful for swimming and we even rented kayaks for a few days on the lake.

The owners are friendly and checked in to be sure we had everything we needed but respectfully gave us our space as well. We were very happy with out stay. And we had our security check returned in a timely manner.

I would highly recommend this rental and we would be happy to stay here again if we didn't live on the West Coast.

4 night stay

  • 5 of 5

Great quiet setting but still close to the happenings of the village. Accommodations were the three C's - Clean, comfortable, and convenient. The directions from the owes were right on and we did not need to use our GPS. Meet the oner and was very friendly and easy to talk to. I would recommend this rental to anyone want a quiet retreat and a place to recharge.

Best Reunion Ever

  • 5 of 5

My brother, sister and I and family met for a stay at Gordon's wonderful townhome and had the best reunion we've ever had! There were plenty of beds and baths and more than we have ever found in basic supplies. The location was perfect - close enough to town for shopping and sightseeing but a lovely quiet retreat on the lake for peaceful evenings away from the crowds. Would totally recommend this Maine haven.
