About Martin Mueller

I live in Europe and this is my vacation place in the maine woods. It reminds me so much of Switzerland only that there is much more nature and animals here in Maine. Paradise for me.

Martin Mueller purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Why Martin Mueller chose Maine

Because I fell in love with it. It is in the woods but only 20 minutes from the big shopping centers or the airport. The people who live year round there are very nice and helpful.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The air is so pure and the water is so clean and the people are so friendly. I have traveled the whole world, but this is home away from home, just perfect and beautiful. Take a cup of coffee in the morning overlooking the pond, watching the deer passing by, what more can you ask for.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were 2 couples staying for 4 nights during the winter. Martin called Don to help us get in the house and Don was very friendly and even brought his dog for us to pet :-)



The beds are very comfortable, sheets and blankets are available, as well as towels. Everything was like new, perfectly clean! The hot tub is awesome, but required a bit of work to set up, because in the winter it is generally off. The kitchen is very well equipped.



We couldn't enjoy a lot of the nature around because it was snowing, but regardless we had an awesome time and highly recommend the place. Certainly worth going back during the Fall.

Wonderful house near Pushaw Lake

  • 4 of 5

We rented the house over Thanksgiving weekend and hosted Thanksgiving Dinner there. We had an absolutely wonderful time. The kitchen was very well equipped! The layout of the house was also perfect for enjoying the meal with family. The house was very comfortable and pleasant. Unfortunately, we could not take hikes in the woods because it was a prime hunting weekend. Also, be careful of the carport if you are there in the winter. Snow melts off it and then ice forms on the gravel at the back edge of the carport and it can be slippery. Martin was very responsive to questions. We arrived late, relied on our GPS, and had no trouble finding it.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This a lovely place to vacation. There were 8 of us. It had all the amenities we needed. It was spotlessly clean. It is well laid out for entertaining. The kitchen was great for cooking. The care taker Don was very helpful. We would definitely recommend to friends.

Amazing Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our first entire family reunion in Maine and we stayed at Martin's property. The house was perfect for the three families that we had. The house was very nicely equipped with all the appliances that one would need for family cooking and grilling. It also had lots of misc. items that Martin allowed us to use that were fun for activities in the backyard / swimming pool.

The beds and rooms were very comfortable and clean.

We ended up making extra time to stay back at the house instead of sight seeing as it was a perfect setting to relax and have fun for grown ups as well as kids. We were able to fish in the small pond out back, swim, be in a hot tub and even go down to the private rock beach on the lake which was at Martin's friend's home and go on a boat ride as well as do paddle boating.

All in all, this is an excellent place to stay. There was not one moment when I thought that oh I wish we had this here. I am hoping to go back here again with our entire family or with my in laws family in a few years.

Our Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was great! The property greeter and caretaker was very flexible with our arrival time and provided a very warm welcome. The house itself was lovely, well appointed and clean. The information book was a blessing and led us directly where we wanted to go. The owner of the house, Martin, arrived in Maine during our stay and was kind enough to introduce himself, check in on our visit a few times and make sure that there was nothing that we needed. He even provided some insight on places to eat and travel that are off the beaten path and more for the locals. We cannot say enough good things about this experience. Hope to return soon. - The Davis Family

We can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at Martin’s house this past August. We loved our stay there and are hard pressed to offer many suggestions for improvements.

The bedrooms are good-sized; the master bedroom has a sitting room with a television and a porch. The beds are of good quality and comfortable.

The kitchen is very nicely equipped. There is a large refrigerator and range. The cabinets are outfitted with just about anything you might require. It even has a Kitchenaid mixer, but none of our meals were ambitious enough to put it to use.

The main floor has a large living room adjacent to the kitchen and a porch. There is a gas grill on the porch we used quite a bit. The one day it rained during our stay happened to be the Sunday afternoon when we had several cousins coming to visit. There were plenty of places to sit both outside and inside and we had no problem entertaining everyone comfortably despite the weather.

It was so cool the time we were there that we never did jump in the pool. We did take advantage of the hot tub on several evenings – it worked well and the little structure was even equipped with a radio so we could pipe in WERU while we enjoyed soaking.

Our children are grown up, but the basement would have been a great hit with the games and equipment available down there.

The greatest aspect was the peace and quiet afforded by this location. There is plenty of wildlife to see (particularly early in the morning). The wi-fi hotspot is apparently over in Martin’s other house, so reception is a bit spotty depending upon where you are in the house, but the whole point is to get away, right?

The caretaker Don was very helpful and friendly. We even got to chat with Martin’s brother during a visit from Switzerland – a very interesting chap.

Bottom line, one can rent this wonderful place for less than the cost of two cheap hotel rooms in town where you will suffer with indifferent neighbors blasting their televisions and slamming doors at all hours. I cannot wait until our next stay here!

Thanks again Martin for the care you have put in to this property and the reasonable rate. We’ve rented other places on Pushaw Lake through Homeaway and there is no comparison – your rental is first class and spacious.

Great property, very nice home and close to Bangor

  • 5 of 5

The home is just 5-7 minutes from Bangor, yet it is situated on such a nice piece of wooded property you are away from it all when you are at the home. The home is very nice and spacious. Martin makes sure everything is just perfect for you and it was during our stay. We saw deer in the evening and enjoyed a walk in woods during the day. Being so close to Bangor, we could pop in town for groceries, shopping etc, and be home in minutes to relax. We can't wait to come back.
