You are right on the pond! Quiet, personal swimming hole, kayaks, swim floats, fire pit. Amazing!

  • 4 of 5

Loons calling in distance, water lapping gently, birds conversing, bathed in morning sunlight, quiet breezes broken by a cicada buzzing.

We showed up to find there were extra rooms that were constructed upstairs for kids to choose, making a wonderful playroom upstairs decked with kids books.

Great place!

Wonderful and Clean Family House!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived the day after Christmas with our 3 kids and dog to have some time away and spend quality time together. We chose the right place! One of the cleanest homes we ever rented. They thought of everything. Scott was great to work with! The kids loved the separate living space downstairs. The neighbors are very nice and helped my children learn about ice fishing. We had great family times by the fire at night. We will be back!

Nice place for a first-time visit to Maine

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming to Maine for over 30 years with my husband to visit his family. This year, I brought my brother and his family---first timers. Mind you, they are not campers; can't stand bugs; and don't like the "rustic". They loved it! The house is roomy, comfortable, beautiful and the kitchen is well- stocked. The lake is beautiful also.

My family was so excited to see an Eagle, Osprey, and the Loons---they were there every morning(and the girls were fascinated by them). Scott and Lisa provide wood for the fire pit (very cool) and they have three kayaks which was also a first-time experience for my family. They went out on the lake (which is pretty calm) almost every day. The location is not bad for particular points of interest i.e. Portland, Freeport, and Popham Beach. Great restaurants are in Hallowell, Agusta, and other places as pointed out by Scott and Lisa. Scott was easy to work with from the beginning. He always responded to my texts and e-mails. He was there to greet us and give us a helpful tour and he also returned our deposit (with a shirt I left behind) within a day. Loved it!

Great place to spend Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the "Maine House" during Christmas. The house is in a perfect spot overlooking the pond. The decor is beautiful and the kitchen has everything you might need. Scott and Lisa generously provide the basic staples in the kitchen along with trash bags, dish soap,spices and plastic wrap etc....all the things you hate to buy for a week's stay. Scott was available and easy to reach. I would highly recommend this house ! You will not be disappointed. LCJ Cape Cd MA

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from a great week at the Maine House. The owner Scott was there when we arrived. He gave us a quick tour of the house and grounds. We unpacked and felt a home right away. Webber pond is great for whatever you want to do on the water. We used the kayaks a lot. I fished and my wife paddled along pointing out the eagles nest. My 3 1/2 year old granddaughter loved the little beach. Speaking of that, I caught a 3 1/2 lb. lg. mouth bass and a 3 lb. Plus a great fight from a 17 in. pickerel right from the dock. We also had a great display of hunting birds, including bald eagles and osprey. The sounds of the loons are great. Minor downfall is the neighbor uses Sunday to do his lawn. So with that we are already looking to see if we can do this next year as well.

Lovely, peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

This house was huge and there were only 2 of us so we stayed on the main level. The kitchen has just about everything you'd need if you like to cook. The dining room looks out onto the beautiful lake. Our visit to Maine was made complete by our stay at this peaceful setting. The lovely towns of Waterville, Augusta, and Hallowell are nearby. Waterville had a great farmer's market. Hallowell had great restaurants.
