Loft had private double and three twins beds.

Lower level had queen bed room

And double bunk with twin over the top. With living area. Fans and a/c.

Laundry room (lower level)with plenty of storage off the entry

The view was amazing and the loons and other birds around made each day enjoyable.

The deck with picnic table and other seating

Wifi no trouble with 9 people

Short drive to Sunday river

We did a lot of hiking around the area

Plenty to see and do for everyone

The lake water was clean cold and a great little swimming area with raft

Kayaking was enjoyed by all

This property is fantastic. It is well maintained and stocked with everything you need. The lake is beautiful. Couldn't ask for a better getaway. My family and I look forward to coming back next year.

Had a beautiful stay in Bryant Pond. The house had all the amenities we could want and then some. Hopefully someday will get back from Montana! Thanks Bill

All the comforts of home! And more!

  • 5 of 5

This place is great. Like many of the other reviews suggest, it has everything you need. It was nice not having to lug everything from home. They had all the necessities, plus a lot of extras such as wifi, books, movies, video game console and board games. While much of our time was spent outside, these "extras" would have provided entertainment should it have rained. Our group of 11 was able to spread out throughout the house, but also come together in the large living room area. The weather was in the 80's-90's and the house stayed airy and not-too-hot.

We spent much of our time outside on the deck, using the kayaks/canoes (we found a loon nest which was pretty neat!), and swimming in the pond. There's lots of lawn space for yard games, and the fire pit was great. The two younger children (ages 3 and 5) safely played in the yard while we relaxed on the deck. We also used the hot tub nearly every night which was a nice way to end the day.

We had family photos taken (we used Yeah Bud! Photography in Bethel who came right to the house, he was great - www.YeahBudPhotography.com) , and the house/lake provided plenty of beautiful backdrops for this. We visited the local convenience store/gas station a couple times which was super close. Bethel is only 10ish minutes away, which has lots of places to eat and lots of things to do.

The only "issues" we really had were with the train, which comes in the early, early morning hours on weekdays (the tracks are right behind the house). It didn't really bother our group too much, and was actually a plus since my nephews love trains. Also, people drive unnecessarily fast on the road between the house and beach/pond, so you have to be careful. There aren't a ton of cars, but they do go fast.

All in all, a wonderful long weekend and we will be returning next year!
