We so enjoyed our time on Half Moon Lake. The house is just beautiful (with a fully stocked kitchen) but what sets it apart is the outdoor space. From the outdoor fireplace and eating area up by the house, to the shady walk down to the dock, to the covered dock seating area where we lounged for hours, we couldn't get enough of the setting. Coffee in the morning, swimming and kayaking time during the day, watching for loons and the changing clouds, and evenings in front of the gas fireplace watching for stars. It was a great escape for us city dwellers and I'd recommend it highly for families. We also managed a day trip to Acadia and explored some of the coastal towns. A win-win of lake time and more traditional Maine sights, dining and shopping.
