About Kellie & Mike Guarino
The owners live in southern Maine on the coast and love escaping the more crowded urban areas to the peace and quiet of the woods and the serenity of the Belgrade stream!
Why Kellie & Mike Guarino chose Mount Vernon
The Belgrade Lakes region has been a favorite spot for family members for over two decades. We were attracted to this spot due to its "end of road" location, the vast woods and wildlife around, and the water. We are avid outdoors people and this property is like our playground close to fresh water!

A Comfortable Cottage in the Woods
The cottage was clean, roomy and well stocked with whatever we needed for a week. Having access to a washer and dryer was terrific. We brought our own sheets and towels, but if you get in a pinch, there are plenty there to use and launder before you leave. The two rooms upstairs are large and perfect for families, with room for storage. The two rooms downstairs are also good sized. Having two bathrooms with 4+ adults and 2 small children was a game changer! One of the little ones is 10 months old and was able to navigate the entire downstairs in her walker. She was also able to be in her walker on the porch, which has a relatively high railing. There is a big yard for lawn games and access to a portable fire pit. Wood to burn is provided. The only downside is that the walk to the water is fairly long, and the path is bumpy and very buggy. We definitely needed our bug swatters! We used a 3-wheeled Bob stroller which is sturdy so it worked for us, and we also took chairs, kayaks, etc down to the gate and back with our vehicle. The water access is a little difficult for kids, but we found places around the snowmobile bridge that were shallow for swimming. The kayaking was amazing! Overall we had a great week, and wouldn't hesitate to return to this home.
YOU WILL LOVE STAYING IN THIS "COUNTRY CHARMING" HOME NESTLED IN THE WOODS!!!
We definitely enjoyed our stay here! House is very clean inside and spacious! There were 7 of us and our dogs and we had plenty of space! Fully stocked kitchen--you will not need to bring anything to cook (except the food!) Washer and dryer on the property was definitely a plus! Window fan units cooled the bedrooms down as we had a HOT week! (Heaters were available also, but definitely not needed the week of June 30 thru July 7th!) Nice sunroom to see outside. We did not use the canoes as they were not at the dock and we would have had to carry them almost a 1000 feet. Overall, it was a great place to stay! I definitely recommend this home!!
Sherri - We always love to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for the reminder on the canoe! There is a cart in basement for moving it and we just took care of placing it down by the dock.
We rented this house during commencement weekend at Farmington to accommodate a few family members who were making the trek to celebrate my daughters graduation. This house was a perfect and most comfortable home to come back to for a family celebration.
Thank you for renting with us. And we are always happy to hear that families get together and have a good time. Diane & Fran
This was the perfect home for our weekend. We would deffinetly recommend to others and only wish our vacation was longer to enjoy the beauty of Maine.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay, and wrote this nice review. Thank you for leaving the house clean. Maybe you will be able to stay longer another time. Diane and Fran James
Very good people to deal with, the cabin was wonderful
Plenty of beds,a well equipped kitchen that included an ice maker in the Fridge. We were
very comfortable and if nights are cool, there is heat available. Plenty of dishes,silverware and cooking utensils. We fired up the Grill and cooked Top Round while watching the Patriots Sunday afternoon. 8 Golfers and we were only 15 minutes from the best Golf Course in the Northeast.(Belgrade Golf Course). We Will most certainly consider staying here again. Location is not on the water but it satisfied our needs.
We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay. Our property does go down to Belgrade Stream, but until the leaves fall off the trees you can not see it from the house. Did you follow the dirt snow mobile trail further down the hill? This weekend we went up to take the docks out of the water. Thank you for the review! Diane
