We love Maine, we visit almost every year. This is the worst place we have ever rented. We made it work and had a great time but it was a challenge. The house is unfinished; it’s a rough cabin. The trees inside are a beautiful part of the decor. But it is a challenge to enjoy the decor when the basics don’t work well. It was a small step above camping - we were out of the elements, had bathroom facilities and beds. If you want to cook, don’t stay here. If you don’t want to bathe in repellent, don’t stay here. The kitchen is not equipped to accommodate cooking; so many things wrong with the kitchen - the stove is awkwardly positioned and difficult to use, all the utensils are a hodgepodge of useless, old dirty tools, no vent fan, wood everywhere absorbing water and rotting ( unsanitary). We had to buy a can opener because the one in the house was completely rusted! The shower is like the kitchen; no water pressure, no light ( we rigged a light so we could see), there is rotting wood in the shower too; so even after bathing we didn’t feel clean. There is no WiFi and phone service is spotty, so you need to know everything about the area, including distances and closing times of restaurants , etc. , no washer/dryer so pack a lot of clothes unless you want to spend your vacation at a laundromat, and the beds are uncomfortable. However, there is an over abundance of mosquitos! Bring multiple cans of repellent. Don’t open the door without being fully coated with bug spray. Once we got out of the neighborhood we didn’t experience many mosquitos.
