Welcome to our home! Since we live in Sweden 10 months a year we decided to offer our home a couple of months from spring to fall.
Bernie is originally from Millinocket and the property has been in his family since 1940. Bernie built the house and love every piece of it.
Kicki is from Stockholm, Sweden where we now live and work. We have three sons (14,20,22) that love the Maine woods and their guest cottage.
Every summer we climb the mountain, go white water rafting, fish and swim and enjoy the outdoors, we hope you will do the same!
Please contact us if you have any questions!
Enjoy your stay and take good care of our loved house.
Our group of friends stayed for a weekend away to go White Water Rafting. The house is conveniently located close to the New England Outdoor Center! We tried the suggestion that was left on the welcome note for Pizza our second night and it was great! There is plenty of cleaning supplies, paper products, towels & dishes/kitchen items. The only thing I would say to bring more of is blankets if you are the type that likes to bundle up! The house is very clean & great space with secluded property and lawn space for outdoor games. We very much enjoy our trips up, this was our second year staying in the home & likely many more to come :)
This is a beautiful home on a quiet arm of Smith Pond. We were within 20 minutes of Baxter State Park. Great hiking. Several very good restaurants nearby. The house is lovely with a bright open floor plan and a well stocked kitchen. The porch was made for outside living with a wonderful grill and seating for 10-12. We watched hummingbirds feeding all day. Overall, a wonderful experience!
Arriving, we were very impressed. The size of the property, the home was as described or better. Well appointed with all we needed from kitchen items to linens. The location was great for those of us who wish to discover the park but are not willing to go without the comforts of a house. The owners were very responsive upon pre-booking and no surprises on the bill. The only drawback was tap water odor which was clearly communicated to us before hand. They supplied us with a water cooler and ample extra water to drink and use but showering was unpleasant due to the odor. Otherwise, they were getting a five-star rating.
My friends and I had a fantastic time in Millinocket and it's mainly because of the home rented via the responsive hosts. Spacious backyard with the opportunity to canoe. Fire pit. Grill. Guest house included to host more people. Overall, an excellent experience.
I don't really want to write this review..... reason being I don't want to share this gem! Beautiful spot in Millinocket! Close to the ITS for snowmobiling. We will definitely be back. Woke up to a slight hum the last day, it was the back up generator. Evidently the street lost electricity over night and the generator kicked on and we stayed warm! Good to know the owners take pride in the property. Don't really have any negatives to this property. One of the guests was Swedish and he loved the décor. Don't really have any negatives to this property. Guess my only one would be to bring your own grill in the winter if you want to grill as we did, but certainly not close to a deal breaker as there is a full kitchen provided. I believe there is a grill provided in the summer months though. Be sure to ask owners or the local manager directions to the ITS. It's very simple once you know where it is. Also close to locations where you can rent snowmobile/atv's and go white water rafting!
Great location for outdoor activities in the Millinocket area. We spent a week with 7 guys, 4 trucks and 4 trailered bass boats that we were able to park around the spacious yard. The house is very clean and well maintained and there was plenty of room for us to spread out and hang out (indoors and outdoors) after fishing all day. I would recommend this rental to anyone.
