  • Lovely Maine home, perfect for a large family

    "6 adults and 3 children enjoyed this beautiful home for a week. Our kids were never bored, and spent hours kayaking and swimming off the dock on the property. The home was large enough to accommodate the mix of family members and everyone always had a space to read, play a board game, or just sit on the lovely deck and enjoy the amazing view of Somes Sound. The house is fully stocked and there was nothing we needed. The owners even provide ample linens & towels. The caretaker was very helpful, and when we lost power for a few hours one evening because of a trim limb down, she responded quickly to let us know what was happening. The location on the quieter side of the island was perfect, and we enjoyed many evenings in Southwest Harbor, although we were only a short drive from Bar Harbor as well. Couldn't have planned a more idyllic vacation, in large part because of this great property."

  • Nature at its finest ... with creature comforts

    "Tucked into the side of a peaceful, wooded peninsula jutting out into tranquil Sandy Pond, this well loved and impeccably maintained cabin provided a perfect Maine retreat. Highlights included: Strolling to 'the Point' and sipping morning coffee as the eagles soared effortlessly above. Swimming in the pristine, refreshing lake water and drying off on the massive, sun-warmed boulders. Exploring the unique corners of the lake by kayak in the morning calm ... and by sparkling moonlight. Biking the scenic and rolling country roads. Relaxing in the hot tub while entertained by near constant activity at the perfectly located bird feeder. Gathering fantastic local farm produce and seafood during sightseeing trips to the coast and nearby villages. Reading by the flickering fireplace on a rainy afternoon. Toasting amazingly beautiful and ever-changing sunsets at 'the Point'. Eating simple dinners on the enclosed summer porch with the surrounding treetops subtly and beautifully lit. Falling asleep to rustle of the breeze through the trees and the periodic call of the resident loons. The cabin was as attractive, comfortable and efficient as described by the owner, Paul, and other reviewers. Monica, the cabin manager, was very welcoming and helpful. We would highly recommend this property to those seeking a perfect mix of pristine lakeside nature and country living close to wonderful sight seeing on the Maine coast. We hope to return someday!"

    "We can't begin to describe how much fun we had while staying at this rental property! Richard was very kind and accommodating throughout the whole rental process. There was a little bit of construction going on at the lake house next door, but they were very nice and made sure to be respectful during the morning hours. There was plenty of games and activities available to keep our kids busy for weeks! The dock on the lake provides a great spot for enjoying sunrises, fishing, kayaking, etc. Can't wait to visit again next year!!"

  • Great vacation lake

    "The positive: It's a very beautiful lake.... crystal clear. The house comes w two kayaks and a paddle board. ( fun ! ) There's a wonderful granite beach with huge rocks within walking distance. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. It's a quiet, safe and friendly area and you can hear the loons at night. There's a great breakfast place right up the road. The cons: the house is not lakefront..... (although it's VERY close.) The dock is kind of high above the water and a small steep rock area make it a bit difficult to get the kayaks in and out of the water."
