      Beautiful Lakefront Getaway

      My wife and I spent our anniversary here and had a great time. Very private and peaceful. Only 20 minutes from Portland. Pretty easy to find during the day, but might be tough at night. I would definitely stay here again.

      5/5 Excellent

        Why do I have to write

        This is the problem with these sites not everybody’s got time to sit here and evaluate everything the people were phenomenal who owned the property I had a great time

        5/5 Excellent

          Felt like home

          Warm and inviting. The cabin was clean. It was everything that was posted on the website. Had a wonderful time. Our family would go back to stay there.

          5/5 Excellent

            Peaceful place to stay

            I was amazed to find a place that was available so late in the season, but thankful I did. Our own family property was more or less destroyed over winter and we didn't find out until after I was booked to come from California. This camp is in a great location and central to where we spent most our time,, Down in the Portland/Scarborough area, as well as the Sebago and Panther Pond region. The location was quiet with very little, to no vehicle traffic was heard. There were moments throughout the week we did notice limited air traffic from I assume Portand Jetport, but it seemed few and far between. Over all a peaceful, quiet location (minus the kids I brought with me! j/k). The kids, two 15 year olds and a 5 year old, enjoyed access to the Kayaks and the paddle boat, and everyone made several swims to and from the floats. The property has a dock to use. The water is pretty shallow, no jumping from said dock,, and my 5 yr old was able to walk out several yards and still touch bottom which was good for us. I am assuming the lake may be a bit low though so I don't know if that is really normal. As others have mentioned the staircase that goes to the basement is steep and not easy to navigate,, though I can't see a better way of doing it. With minimum reasons to go down there,, I just went around the outside to the exterior entry. Beds were comfortable, and the place was clean. I used the little patio a lot,, great place to sit and chill and watch the lake and kids. We did fire up the little fire pit one night. Owner was helpful and very quick to respond to any communications that were sent. All in all, I recommend this camp, and would not shy away from staying again.
