Very clean inside and outside. Lake was clean as well!

  • 4 of 5

Aside from the busy street, overall, it is a nice place. It is very clean and nice inside. When you are outside in the backyard overlooking the lake, you don't even think about the busy street or notice it. The lake is clean and the owners supplied a kayak and a canoe for entertainment. My family and I would go back again! We really enjoyed ourselves!

We all had an amazing time

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely recomend this rental. The water was very clean, the camp was clean and comfortable, Shop n Save is right down the street. Our kids had so much fun and loved to sit on the deck in the mornings and evenings. And the camp had plenty of equipment and toys for them to use to keep them busy during the day. We will be back next year for sure!

The Way Life Should Be

  • 5 of 5

As a lifetime Mainer, recently moved to SC, I was looking for a vacation that would give me everything that screamed MAINE. We're so glad we found this place.

It's hard to say anything bad when you had seven days of near perfect weather during your stay. The house was simple but fully equipped. The lot was much larger than I expected and allowed us to host our family and support 22+ people milling about. Paddling every morning with the rising sun and the laughing loons was my favorite part of the day.

The owners were prompt to our inquiries and pleasant to work with. We're already looking forward to our next stay on the lake.

Thank you for making this available!

Fantastic modern home with spectacular views over the lake.

  • 5 of 5

Super modern lakeside house built to benefit from the wonderful views across the lake. The house is extremely well equipped to enjoy the garden and lake and the kitchen has all the upto date equipment to cater for yourself. In an excellent location to walk into Dexter to get provisions and enjoy walks around the lake. Really enjoyed visiting Bar Harbor and Freeport.

Made to feel very welcome to enjoy their holiday camp by the owners.

Fun on the lake!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four was very comfortable in this home for a week in July. The kayaks and canoe were great to explore the lake with. The kids had a blast jumping off the floating raft. The house was clean. I'm always a little concerned when there's living space in a basement, but this basement was dry and did not smelly musty at all. The road was a little busier than I expected. And you really have to travel over an hour to any Maine attractions. We spent a day at Moosehead Lake and another driving and hiking to Moxie falls. I suggest researching ahead of time any day trips you want to take. Overall, a good week! Thank you.
