Guestbook comments from the owner

Denmark was beautiful in Oct.! The foliage absolutely stunning, and as always the people in that area so nice. The earthquake was interesting, fish abundant, great week overall. Thank you for all your help in arranging this getaway. Truly appreciate all you efforts.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review. Yes, as advertised we choose not to have wifi and removed the phone as most guests are repeat and have been able to use their cell and prefer us to keep costs down. Thank you for the four stars and the review. We consider the wifi each year- but decide against it fo those reason. Melissa

An Ideal Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming here for several years now, and still we always look forward to returning. It's perfect for swimming and kayaking during the day, and sitting by the fire pit at night. When we feel like roaming a little, it's a great location for day trips to Bridgton, the White Mountains, Sebago, Portland, and the seacoast. The house is roomy and comfortable, and has been updated quite a few times since we've been renting. For our family, it wouldn't be summer without our two weeks here. Thanks so much for making it available!

A charming place to relax and enjoy the quiet pond.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The cottage is comfortable and clean. Lots of time in the water, paddle boarding, canoeing, kayaking, swimming. We didn't even leave the pond except for one day, (which was cloudy) to visit Reny's in Bridgton.

The pond is so pretty and peaceful. Loved listening and watching the loons.

A great time for all!

Stunning views of the lake. A quiet and serene location. A place to gather your thoughts and unplug

  • 5 of 5

5th time renting this house. The owner continues to do updates and improvements yearly. This years update was a brand new kitchen. The lake was very quiet this year and so calm every morning. The house has everything you could need and it is so nice to unplug for the week and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Great dining nearby but we just love using the grill and enjoying the evenings relaxing on the deck.

Beautiful, serene lake setting that just keeps getting better every year.

  • 5 of 5

This is my families 4th time staying at this property and it just keeps getting better. The owner makes several improvements to the house every year. The lake is beautiful and serene. We love taking the paddle boat or canoe out on the lake with the kids. Tons of stuff to do if you want to venture out but we just like to chill by the lake if the weather is good.

There is no better place on the planet!

  • 5 of 5

The grandkids loved the new floating dock & it certainly got well used with all that HOT weather.

We love coming here & hope that we can continue to enjoy it for years to come.

Making memories is one of our favorite pasttimes!

Thanks for sharing your home.
