We were looking for a low stress, relaxing "do-nothing" sort of vacation this year, where we wouldn't be tempted by amusement parks or historic sites, and this property was perfect. The house is very clean and well equipped. The kitchen had everything needed to prepare and enjoy meals. There was plenty of room to eat in the kitchen, or out on the deck. The house has enough of a homey feel to make you feel comfortable, but not so much that you feel like you are invading someone else's space. It was just right for relaxing.
I was worried that the lake might be more of a swamp, but it was beautiful- not big/busy enough to create a lot of noise, but large enough to create a feeling of tranquility. It isn't a remote/private cabin- we did hear some children playing in the water nearby and saw a boat or jet ski once or twice a day, but the area was quiet enough that I'd sit on the dock reading and discover that two or three hours had gone by without being interrupted. The kayaks and paddle boats are perfect for newbies. The water is clean and clear. Other than a quick trip into town to buy groceries, we were able to stay put and enjoy each other's company. Bangor is about an hour away, so if you have a rainy day, check out the Cole Museum of Land Transportation or the Discovery Museum (for kids.)
We've had ups and downs with VRBO, but this was definitely a positive experience. The cabin and surroundings were actually much nicer than the pictures and description given. We highly recommend it!
