    Waterfront getaway in ideal Maine location

    This was our first stay at this property and we hope to return. Complete with kayaks, canoe, paddle boards, and all the lake toys you could want, this is a fabulous family vacation waiting to happen! We wanted to be close enough to Portland to enjoy shopping, yet out of town enough to feel like we could enjoy privacy. The sandy beach in front of the house is perfect. As a host, Peter is quick to respond to any questions or needs. We loved our stay!

    5/5 Excellent

    Great place

    Beautiful & Peaceful Lake House

    This is an incredible property if you are lucky enough to be in the area. The house is cozy and well stocked with all the comforts of home. The view from both units is gorgeous. The beach access is large with plenty of room to hang out or partake in many water activities, which the owner has provided. The location is nice and quiet. We had a hard time leaving! Peter the owner is very friendly and accommodating.

    5/5 Excellent

    Beautiful, well-equipped and furnished vacation home

    Property was just as advertised--immediately on the waterfront of a quiet lake. Beautiful lake views, sunsets. Easy access/very close to highway. Close, albeit quiet neighboring lake homes. Very clean and well-maintained inside and out, well-equipped kitchen and anything needed is there!
