Great, fit our needs and was close our destination
It was very close to the venue of our son's wedding.
The home was clean and we'll maintained. The home owner was very accommodating to our slightly early check-in. The foliage view from this lake front home we're spectacular.
Excellent weekend stay
My family had a great time staying at this lake house. It was large, comfortable and well appointed. The hosts were friendly and helpful. (They even sent us the clothing that my Nephew left behind). We all highly recommend it,
I live in the area and was looking for a camp to rent for a family and friends get together. Speaking as a local I can say that the rates are great for the location and camp/house. The owners were so nice. The camp/house is on a beautiful piece of property and is set up in a way that our get together was a hit with young and old. There is plenty of room inside and out. Thank you for a great stay!
Something for everyone!
This beautiful home is perfectly located for anyone who is looking for the best of what Maine has to offer. Not only is it well maintained, spotless and complete with "all the comforts of home", it is situated on one of Maine's most beautiful lakes. If you like swimming, hiking, paddling (canoe or kayak), or just sitting with a cup of coffee listening to the birds, you could not choose better accomodations.
Wildlife abounds in this pristine setting. Not only were we lucky enough to have a visit from a bald eagle, we were serenaded each evening by several loons.
Our favorite place to visit in Maine is Acadia National Park. There is so much to do on Mount Desert Island, and it's just 40 minutes away from this wonderful home...well, it's 40 minutes if you don't stop at some of the antique shops along the way.
Of course, no visit to Maine would be complete with out fresh lobster. For that we made a visit to Carrier's Lobster Pound. (Yum!) Not only were the lobsters delicious, the owner and his family were awesome!
If you're like us and you can't take the Maine winter, enjoy a Maine summer!
Thanks, Pam and Brian, for sharing your beautiful home with our family!
Even a Native Mainer ranks this place #1
I grew up in Maine and I have now lived in Colorado for 20 years. My family and I rented this cabin in July 2009 and had the best Maine vacation we could have imagined. The location on Alamoosook Lake (the lake I grew up on) is a picture perfect setting with great swimming, great views, and lots of enjoyment fireside each evening. The accomodations are excellent, plenty of comfortable beds, a nice deck overlooking the lake, fun times on the kayaks and the canoe, and a large area to visit around the campfire. The full kitchen and multiple bathrooms are also excellent. The proximity to Bucksport, Bar Harbor (Acadia National Park), and other "down-east" fun is unparalleled, and the camp is not very far off the main road of Route 1. This is THE PLACE to rent if you are considering touring the area, while at the same time looking for some excellent "down time" for relaxation and quiet. The loon calls in the evening are as soothing as the tiny ripples of water lapping up against the waterfront each night. The owners keep this place in great condition and are easy to work with. Take it from a native Mainah' - you will enjoy this property for a great Maine getaway!
The home of Craig Brook National Fish Hatchery, Alamoosook Lake is
fantastic for fishing, bird watching, canoeing, kayaking, and
swimming. Hike on nearby Great Pond Mountain or venture further to
Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park (35 miles away) for endless
adventurous hiking and gorgeous sunsets overlooking Bar Harbor. Bar
Harbor's reputation for dining and shopping precedes itself. They
also have bike rentals available in the town which you can take back
up the mountain for an exhilarating, or leisurely, ride on the
carriage roads. (Don't forget to stop for popovers at Jordan Pond
when you're through!) Fantastic dining and shopping also await you in
the picturesque Camden waterfront village 50 miles away. The smaller
towns of Blue Hill, Castine, Belfast, and Ellsworth (each within 20
miles or so of Alamoosook Lake) are all jewels well worth exploring.
Please don't forget to visit the little town of Bucksport, home of
the original Fort Knox, just 5 miles away. Here you can take a look
at the stunning new Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory from its
quaint waterfront walkway. This latest modern marvel of enginering
technology opened the summer '07.
