Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week after Labor Day at Gordon's Waterfront Retreat and it was a lovely time. Gordon was always very responsive to emails. The house was very clean.The location was convenient to the town of Boothbay Harbor but far enough away from the hustle and bustle. We ate lobster every day! It was wonderful.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in June and had a wonderful time! The house was very clean and well cared for. Lovely views of the pond from inside the house and out. My husband fished from the dock almost every day of our stay! It was so quiet and relaxing and was just what we were looking for! The reclining sofas are comfortable enough to fall asleep in, and the kitchen has everything you need if you decide to cook. Gordon has thought of everything and was a pleasure to deal with!

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home last summer and had a fabulous time. The lake is beautiful and we kayaked almost everyday. The house is spotless and has everything anyone could need. We walked to town everyday and just loved the area. We would recommend renting this house for anyone that just wants to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. It's also great if you have a canoe or kayak because the lake is perfect, not too big or too small. If we ever come back to Maine we will try to stay here again.

Gordon was also great and responded to all of our e-mail inquiries. Thanks, Gordon. I'm sorry it took so long to write this review.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This place actually exceeded our expectations. Very comfortable, clean, well equipped, organized, and stocked with basics beyond what we ever found in renting condos in Florida for many years. Especially appreciated the notebook left for us as renters with all sorts of information regarding the property, as well as maps, brochures, etc. about the area that we found helpful. The pictures of the landscape don't do it justice, must have been taken in the spring. The swimming dock is a nifty bonus for swmimmers. Also appreciated the cookbook and the classic movie DVDs.
