Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at The Eagles Nest. The accommodations were exactly as advertised. We had everything we needed. The smell of the pine trees and the view of the pond was wonderful. We enjoyed swimming in the crystal clear water. There were antique stores and flea markets close by to explore. Carol and Larry were friendly and everything was beautifully maintained. We would stay here again.

Unfortunately we were there for such a short stay! Carol and Larry were very nice to meet and look forward to seeing them again. The swimming,paddleboating and relaxing below on dock was refreshing to do and enjoy. Upon leaving we were trying to figure out our schedule to stay again before the season ends. The water was very clean for swimming and a nice sandy bottom. The Eagles Nest was very clean and pretty much everything within to cook etc. The bed was very comfortable and views from the window nice to wake up to. If your looking for a quiet getaway this is the place to stay. Highly recommend for a romantic getaway . Just feet away from a private beach maybe have a fire end of night after a day of traveling.

A special place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very special place. While cell/internet capabilities are limited (you can use an I-Phone as a "hot spot" for an I-Pad), it provides a nice opportunity to be "disconnected" for a few days - something we all need. The location is ideal, proving easy access to numerous tourist/recreational areas on the central coast and the lower lakes region of Maine. Most importantly, the Eagles Nest is a spotless, comfortable, well equipped home away from home. The view to the pond from the sitting area is magnificent. The garden atmosphere is beautiful. For those who like the water - I have never seen such a clean, clear pond/lake - there is easy access to the water, a nice Old Town Canoe, and a sandy, safe swimming area. The hosts were attentive to our comfort and I look forward to our next visit.

Peaceful, crystal-clr pond, immaculate small cabin

  • 5 of 5

A little piece of paradise. Beautiful surroundings and site - the pungent smell of the forrest!; crystal-clear very small lake (canoe and paddle boat provided); very clean and well-maintained small cabin with all necessary amenities (remember : very small tv though, just a few TV stations, no wifi; but we knew this ahead so it is not a complain! :) ).

Carol and Larry, the owners, live on the same land, in the big house near the cabin, but are very discreet, and the landscaping is well done so you don't feel too close : beautiful tall trees, plants, flowers; two private decks to eat, read or just quietly watch the crystal-clear pond. The owners are really nice and helpful, while very discreet and not imposing. Ask them for advices, for ex. if you have hiking plans in the area - they know all the right directions (some hiking sites are extremely hard to find).

45-60 min. drive to beautiful Portland; 20-30 drive to grocery store. Nearby friendly "Maine Book store" on route 26 where we bought many (used) books. Very quiet county, beautiful little town of Norway nearby, beautiful nature.

Very restful vacation! Thank you!

Quiet and Pleasant Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Eagles' Nest when we were attending a retreat at Ganderbrook Christian Camp in nearby Raymond, Maine. All the amenities we needed were provided. Beautiful china dishes, a comfortable bed, plenty of room, lots of hot water, quiet setting. We would stay here again.
