Worn out old dump that badly needs new investment

  • 1 of 5

The first impression when you pull up is the siding rotting off the front. Once inside you realize that the rotting wood is also structural as everything leans towards the middle, due to what I guess to be termite damage. The floor and stairs flex enough to make you wonder whether this place will stay standing in a storm. The "yard" is a collection of holes and old tree stumps making it impossible to walk around without tripping. Our 8 year old son got his leg stuck in a gap between the rear of the house and the stairs (we had to pick up and move the stairs to fix the safety issue)

Amenities wise, there are none other than wifi and a tv. In the kitchen, the pans and everything else are greasy and dirty (the silverware drawer is covered is sticky goo) with no room to put hardly any food. The fridge was set at max cool, but barely kept food cold. Same with the freezer, so don't buy any ice cream because it just melts. No dishwasher, no disposal. The water heater sits in front of the door to the bathroom. Interior design? Sure, if you consider painted wafer board and cardboard stapled up as a wall design. The torn couch cushion was covered with a dirty sheet. When you sit in one of the 3 table chairs you bottom out. The beds are old, uncomfortable, and creak with every move. The blankets smell like old blankets. AC? No. We bought 3 box fans to try to cool the place off, so don't expect to sleep in comfort unless you enjoy sweating to sleep. They sell this place as quaint "like grandma's" place, but it is just old, dingy, and worn out. A broken sewer pipe out front emitted sewer gas which depending on the wind you could smell. We were also warned that the septic tank alarm could go off but to just call and they would come pump it. Gee, thanks. The grill gas ran out the 2nd time we grilled and they told that we were responsible to go out to buy a tank of propane. (Buy a spare tank cheapskate! Even if all guests grilled out everyday for the season you probably won't go through $100 of propane) They did specifically mention how they generously provided 2 rolls of TP. We stayed at another place down the road last year (and another at Thxgiving) and couldn't believe the contrast between how nice that place was kept and how bad this place is. We left a day early because the place made us miserable. Neighbor Joe was the highlight. Offered us firewood, very nice to our kids. There are much nicer options on Pushaw by people who take pride in their properties

Owner's Response: Wow... Strange, Mark, that when you arrived, you loved the place! It wasn’t until I had to withhold your $100 deposit, that you became enraged and decided to write the scathing review. The $100 was held because of an unauthorized dog, extra guests, several broken items (including the strings on my guitar? really?), residue and burn marks left in my canoe from launching fireworks, copious amounts of garbage that was never put out for collection, rotting pizza left on sideboard, spilled food in refrigerator. All the potted flowers we just bought before your arrival were completely dead (Tiffany had asked you to water them so she wouldn’t have to come by to bother you). Neighbors complained and shared photos of their ash covered boats from fireworks released in way too close proximity to their property. Sparklers were left all over the grounds, and in the flower pots with the dead flowers, toys left outside and all over... I could keep going… You left Friday August 5th in the morning, but wouldn't answer Tiffany's calls until the following day so she had very little time to do A LOT of work to get the cabin ready for the next guests. She had to bring in help to get it all done in time. The pet fee alone would’ve been $100. The cleaning fee I charge didn't begin to cover the cost of cleaning, and no tip was even left for Tiffany and all her efforts. I post photos of my cabin and frankly people love it. I love it. It’s charming, cozy, in a beautiful spot, and well cared for by Tiffany. Your commentary is rude, insulting and beyond exaggeration. Most people renting a lake cottage in Maine are not looking for the Ritz Carleton. If that’s what you want, then you should go there, and pay for it. My cottage is quaint, comfy, and well decorated. It is clean, with fresh linens, towels, and nice new furniture, pots & pans, new refrigerator and stove, as well as new small appliances. My cabin is exactly what it is, and priced for what it is. We have no false pretenses. As far as the other property you referred to, that you stayed at last year; they had a similar experience with you, and frankly they were sorry that they didn’t have a chance to warn

Great getaway!

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this rental for a week while visiting for my sister-in-law's wedding. It was clean and comfortable. Tiffany was excellent and even unlocked the door for us when our husbands went out for the day (taking the key along with them!). There were defiantly charming features about the home, and it is more spacious then the pictures give credit for. The new remodel will do the house justice as the upstairs is in need of a facelift, having no doors on the bedrooms made things interesting. Overall we had a great experience! Thanks again!

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

This property brought back a lot of memories of the cabin I used to stay at every summer when I was a kid in Newport, Maine. It's quiet and peaceful, and it was a nice relaxing get away. We fished off the dock every day and caught mostly sunfish and perch. Unfortunately it was raining for most of our trip so I wasn't able to read a book on the hammock like I had hoped or take the canoe out around the lake, however I was happy they were provided because I would definitely have enjoyed using both. The house is 15 minutes away from town and everything we needed in town was within 1/2 mile of each other. We're planning on staying here again next year!!

Serenity and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

the property is not new by any means and it has that rustic cabin feel which is just what I was looking for. It was very peaceful and clean. The towels and bedding was fresh and the little TV was all you needed. Me and my father had a great stay. A few things they could provide that would have really made it perfect are small but when we needed them it seemed like a big deal. :) We bought a lobster but did not have claw crackers. the can opener did not work so that was interesting trying to open a can. we did have fun with it though. I had 2 graduations to attend but no hair dyer. Air drying takes a long time. There was no salt and pepper. I didn't realize how much salt and pepper I use and how much I would miss it. There is no Tupperware for left overs so we had to throw food out. There were 2 bigger things that definitely need to be fixed. The shower does not drain and the stove settings. The low is high and makes it very difficult to cook on. Overall I am glad we stayed here and would probably rent again but would be extremely happy if these items were there the next time. :)

Owner's Response: There were lobster crackers, and salt and pepper in the buffet, also tupperware in the cupboard. The stove is brand new and works perfectly according to Tiffany. We did buy a new electric can opener and repaired tub drain.

Quaint little cottage by the lake

  • 4 of 5

we enjoyed our stay at this cottage. The house was very clean. The home manager (tiffany) was very accomodating and wonderful. The neighbors were very friendly. The lake was so beautiful. Very close to Bangor and a short scenic drive to Acadia and Bar Harbor. Would definitely visit again and recommend to my friends.

Perfectly Happy!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was better than expected. It was comfortable and inviting. I spent many hours relaxing in the hammock. My family fell in love with this cottage. We were sad to leave.
