Guestbook comments from the manager

We really loved our 2 weeks in this home. It was so peaceful and quiet, that we wanted to stay longer. Too bad someone else had booked it. :) The little town of Dexter was fun to spend time in too.

My girlfriend and I came looking for a vacation getaway to remove ourselves from the hustle and bustle of city life and that's exactly what we got. Not only was the house spotless and well-maintained but it afforded us all the daily necessities (pots/pans/washer/dryer/etc.) as well as simple luxuries like waterfront dining, fire pit and scenic views. Highly recommended for anyone looking for seclusion and tranquility - we'll definitely be back again next year!

Home away from Home!!

  • 4 of 5
This home was the perfect place for a family of four (two children 11 & 17) and a Golden Retriever!! There was so much to do at the home that you didn't think about being bored!!! Paddle boat, two kayaks, tree rope swing into pond (kids loved it!!) air hockey table, swimming, enjoying nature, listening to the loons, laying in hammock (watching kids swim) and seeing beavers and fox! We spent a day at Lake Moosehead and took a 4.5 hr steamship boat to Mt. Kineo - breathtaking (1 hr away) We also saw a moose and family of deers on the back roads! The house is modern, fully-equipped, clean, well-maintained. The owner was very nice and helpful. The town is about 15 minutes away for anything you need. It's a perfect place for re-connecting with your family - we had so many laughs!!!! Thank you once again for letting us stay in your home!! We already wish we were back there!!

I was nervous that the pictures were decieving and the place was smaller once there. We were not diddappointe, dare I say I was even more pleased when we walked in. It was clean and spacious, the perfect getaway. There is a desk that you can read what past travelers say and things to do, this was interesting and a great help. I liked that Anna called to see if we got there ok and called on the last night to see how the week went and to see if there was anything to be improved upon. We were at the lake every morning, it was so privat. The water was great to swim in and we Kayaked around the whole lake. I have been to alot of places like Hawaii,Florida and North Carolina and have loved them but I think this spot was a gem and I couldn't have been more pleased with our first trip to Maine.

Loved the house!

My fiancé and I greatly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home on the lake. We had never visited Maine before and after staying here were thinking about buying a house there. It is so peaceful and relaxing. We were able to take our two dogs (Pomeranian and Shiba Inu) for the week and that was wonderful. We got them life jackets and took them out on the kick boat and other than the wicked sunburn I received it was great! It was a little too cold to swim but we sat out on the lake and put our feet in and just did a lot of relaxing. We went up to Moosehead lake and spotted several moose which was awesome and took the dogs on some trail walks (our little one, the pom, was not really wanting to do all that walking so I mostly had to carry her) but it was really neat seeing all of the different kinds of birds and wildlife. We saw a lot of foxes up near Moosehead and some pretty cool loons on the lake at the house. Also, there were lots of mosquitoes, bring the OFF for sure! We visited Bar Harbor and did not feel that it was too far - we had checked the maps before coming and knew what to expect as far as distance goes but we also enjoy longer rides in the car - we were able to see more of Maine that way. We also went and saw Stephen Kings house – which was awesome!! So all in all - we had a great time, the house was amazing and clean and the owners were unbelievably helpful as I had one million questions before we rented their home. Thanks and hopefully we can go up again soon!!
