About Gunter Schramm

We live in Hilton Head SC. most of the year. The house for rent is dedicated for rental only and therefore has no personal clothing or other personal items in it.

Owner speaks English, German and Spanish and accepts communication in these languages.

Gunter Schramm purchased this house in 2005

Why Gunter Schramm chose Acton

This house was designed by an architect and is on one of the cleanest and most picturesque lakes in southern Maine.

What makes this house unique

Sit on your own dock and enjoy swimming, fishing, eating a lobster dinner or just watching the beautiful sunsets. Watch the loons and listen to their call at night.

The House has southern exposure and the dock will have sun most of the day.

Have great conversations at the fire pit in the evening.

Swim, kayak, canoe or use your own motorboat (no wave runners please).

first class every time

  • 5 of 5

We have been twice now for the week of the 4th of July and we always have so much fun. The house is amazing, it's got everything you could ever need. The owners are so kind and live right next door if you need anything. Maggie makes an amazing rum cake and they have kayaks and a canoe and you are right on the water. The pond is calm and not super busy. We had a really hot week and just put our chairs and floats in the shallow part of the water and had the best time. They thought of everything. First class trip.

Our favorite summer spot

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year visiting Maggie's Place and its magical every year. The pond is gorgeous, the house is comfortable and wonderfully decorated, and Gunter and Maggie are outstanding hosts. Our daughters love swimming and kayaking, and making campfires. We love relaxing on the dock, cooking big meals and enjoying each other's company. Highly recommended!

A thoroughly relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

This property is well appointed and stunningly beautiful. From gorgeous sunsets to peaceful canoe rides, it simply guarantees a restful vacation. We are also grateful for the thoughtful accomodations that made all the members of our family from toddlers to grandparents comfortable. Swimming, fishing and boating on beautiful Horn Pond gave everyone an activity and toasting marshmallows and telling ghost stories around the campfire was the highlight this year. The added hospitality of fresh baked goods delivered mid-week, suggestions for near-by eateries and magical eagle sightings makes Gunter and Maggie the most generous of hosts.

Gorgeous House with idyllic views

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband, sister and her husband, and my parents for a week and we could not have asked for anything more. They have it all, and they are right next door to cater to you if you need anything. Friendly and gracious hosts, and the house is beautiful, well kept, clean and has just about everything. You want a kayak? They have 3. You need a canoe, you got it. You forgot a chair or a float? They have camp chairs, Adirondack chairs and two tubes for the water. There are games and puzzles, a blu- ray player, and a washer/dryer in the basement. This really is a beautiful house and the garden was a dream. Gunter and Maggie are great! They brought over a rum cake and gave us a personal tour. This place really is five stars. Thanks for an amazing stay, hope to see you next year! Hansen/Jewell/Paone Family :)

Lake front on Hornpond
Car: necessary

Horn Pond was voted the most scenic lake in York county. We are an hour away from Portland Me, where you can shop, whale watch, take a ferry ride to the islands and visit the many fine restaurants and great pubs Portland is known for.

Kennebunkport, a typical New England port town, is about 45 minutes away. Have a lobster dinner and drive by George W. Bush's compound.

Portsmouth NH is about 45 minutes away. You can visit historic Strawberry Hill or take a day trip to the Shoals Islands. Also a great place to dine and peruse shops.

The charming town of Wolfeboro NH, situated on Lake Winnipesaukee, is about 30 minutes away. It claims to be the oldest resort in the USA. A fun place to browse, shop and eat.

And always come back to Maggie's place, to rest on the dock with a glass of wine or beer and watch the beautiful sunsets - and at night listen to the call of the loons which have been on this lake the last 30 years.
