It is always a delight to go to Maine and even more delightful when you stay in a house that surpasses all your expectations. Located on a cove, this contemporary house looks out over the lake with astounding views afforded by floor to ceiling windows on both floors. With windows on the sides of the house as well, one feels surrounded by the Maine wilderness. Waking up to this every morning is right way to start every day in Maine. Because the house is so well-appointed with labels on every light switch, surround sound speakers, gas stove (we loved this), two full bathrooms, and cleverly-conceived sitting areas, it was impossible not to relax since everything is so well laid out and functional. The house was warm and cozy when we arrived and always felt welcoming after a day out in the Maine winter. Like my wife, I too found the kitchen particularly well-conceived with a Keurig coffee machine (even though we brought our own espresso maker) and containers for left-overs after eating a splendid meal. Clearly there has been a lot of thinking to add the touches to the house that make staying there all the more special. Perhaps the best part of the stay was the fun we had on the frozen lake that we could access within seconds from the house. Compared to the ice on our rink in New Jersey, the ice on the lake was so pure and smooth that we all went skating and running on the lake as much as possible. Grabbing our skates was a last second decision and the ease with which we could get skating meant that the kids spent more time outdoors than on their computers and video games. By the way, the wifi works wonderfully well and we enjoyed that in the evenings after a day on the lake or on the nearby slopes at Shawnee Peak ski resort. On the rare occasion that we left the house, Bridgton was close enough for groceries, restaurants and even a movie night. Parking was easy and the house was well-suited to bringing our dog who spent a lot of time with us outdoors. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in Naples and would come back in an instant. It was certainly appreciated that we arrived to a spotless house with a bottle of Prosecco waiting for us in the kitchen. I can think of no place in Maine better suited to provide a great vacation experience. I hope we can come back here in the summer some time.
If you're trying to find a cozy cabin in maine, this is probably the place you're looking for. Skiining near by, RIGHT on the pond. Pretty ideal.
My girlfriend and I stayed here in early Jan when the lake was frozen over. I'm from a place where lakes AND freezing temperatures are rare, so getting to walk out on the frozen lake was a really fun experience.
