A beautiful and special place with lots of amenities
We were totally blown away by this property. It is a spacious, gorgeous home that is very well decorated and cared for and there are supplies and equipment of the highest quality for the renter's use. We had everything we needed in the house--laundry, a beautiful kitchen, sauna, wifi and phone service, etc. There were pleasant breezes from ceiling fans in every room and A/C if needed. Our toddler grandchildren were mesmerized playing in the room with the bunk beds, which had a closet bookshelf that magically pulled away to reveal a secret play room for children with an indoor slide, carpeted floors and plenty of room for a crib, which we rented from a local purveyor. Adults could play too. We read books on the comfortable furniture, swam in a most beautiful lake ( it was so clear you could easily see your toes and turtles and fish that happened by.) We jumped off the dock, took 40 minute swims, fished, tried paddle boarding for the first time, kayaked around the serpentine corners of the lake and into the abutting lake, floated in relaxation on the inner tubes that were provided, and cooked together in the large kitchen that was much better equipped with every imaginable utensil than one would have gathered from the property description.We found ourselves tuned into the resident loons and the various calls they would make, day and night. There were crisp soft sheets, many extra pillows, and a plethora of bathrooms, including a convenient one on the first floor. One had the impression that the owners did not spare any expense in creating this vacation home for their family and it was heartening to see the trust they put in us renters to take care of expensive boats, life jackets, the sauna, and a jetted bath tub in the master bath. On rainy days, one can read or pop into Portland and catch a children's or adult museum or a highly-rated restaurant and even Raymond had some funky gourmet food and coffee stores. We had so much fun this week and it will always be a poignant memory for our family. We had a meaningful time visiting with each other in different combinations; taking turns cooking and grilling meals; sharing stories, music and s'mores by the fire pit in the evenings; and swinging sweetly on the hammock when we wore ourselves out. I am happy for the family who owns this as they have the opportunity to enjoy this when they want; it is a real gift.
P.S. Bring beach towels
Perfect Week With Family
Late August days, a perfect lakeside location, loads of amenities and roomy modern accommodations. What more can you ask for? Thanks to Matt and Carissa for a great week on Crescent Lake!
A perfect home on a beautiful lake
This house has everything and is meticulously maintained. A perfect lake house with great views and a very enjoyable waterfront. The owners are most considerate and helpful.
Beautiful lake house for our family vacation.,Our grandson loved the secret playroom.Lots of room
The property is absolutely stunning!
Right on the lake.. we saw eagles everyday .. and great fishing!
Beautiful, spacious, comfortable home
We stayed at this home with a couple other families with young children for the New Year's weekend. What a lovely stay we had! The home is perfect for large groups/families. The kids LOVED the secret play room. The kitchen, dining, and living spaces are all plenty big with room for everyone to spread out. We also liked that the house had three levels so each family had their own level/bedroom for sleeping. Despite the bitter cold temperatures outside during our stay, the house was plenty warm for us! We would definitely recommend this home, and we would certainly return if we have the opportunity to again.
Perfect October family gathering
We have a tradition of celebrating Thanksgiving in October so that our spread out family can get together without the hassle of travel in late November. When I found this VRBO home for rent I knew it would fulfill our needs with its four bedrooms, four baths, huge kitchen, lovely dinning room and only 3 miles from our niece who was hosting our big feast. We were impressed by the huge Viking stove that we used to prepare cheese rolls and pumpkin pie and the secret hideaway behind the kids bedroom that kept the grandchildren fully occupied while we cooked and visited with each other. We enjoyed the views out the windows looking at the lake and the swing set out behind the house. It is a very clean and well stocked home with numerous amenities including a whole house generator which kicked in early the last morning as we were getting ready to leave. A huge storm hit Maine the night before with over 500,00 customers without electricity in the state. What a blessing to have the generator to keep us warm with lights and power to brew our morning coffee! We will definitely try to rent this place again in the summer so that we can kayak and swim in the lake.
Crescent Lake is situated in the beautiful Sebago Lakes Region and this elegant, modern home is located on the desirable southern shore of the lake. This smaller, quieter lake is suitable for children of all ages. Enjoy all of your favorite freshwater activities, fishing, boating, water skiing, tubing, kayaking, etc. (rental comes with two kayaks and a canoe!). For the nature enthusiasts you may paddle or motor your way up the Tenney River where wildlife abounds. This river connects Crescent Lake to the larger Panther Pond. Close proximity to Freeport and Portland offers a multitude of shopping and dining experiences.
The fall is our favorite time of the year on the lake; apple picking, hayrides, and nature walks. Located just a few miles away is Rattlesnake Mountain which offers great family hiking activities. In the winter months we are within easy driving distance to some great skiing including Shawnee Peak, Lost Valley and Sunday River. Snowmobiling, ice fishing, skating, and snowshoeing are all available at your front door, and all the attractions of Portland are only 30 minutes away!
