Family owned lake-house new to weekly rentals
About Sheree Cave
My husband's grandfather built this camp in 1940. We recently purchased the cabin and have spent many months renovating it. We added AC/ heating, an extra bathroom, new electrical and plumbing, washer and dryer, many new windows and flooring. We love Flat Rock (which is an actually place on the backside of the cabin, for which is got it's name!). And we can't wait to share it with you....
Sheree Cave purchased this Cabin in 2018
Why Sheree Cave chose Ellsworth
This camp is a centerpiece for our family and we want to share it with you.

“Roughing it” in luxury
If you cannot relax while at this cabin then you need to seriously think about changing your traveling companions or starting on anxiety meds.
Usually when a property says “rustic charm” they mean old and worn out but that doesn’t apply here! The owners have held onto the charm of an era gone by lake cabin and successfully integrated all the modern conveniences that make this “roughing it in luxury”. All the appliances are modern, clean and a breeze to use. Small luxuries have been thought of - several soft blankets for cuddling up in, a hair dryer that actually dries your hair (no need to pack yours), magnifying mirror in master bath(much appreciated for these aging eyes) WIFI that is fast, just to name a few.
We timed our first trip (definitely not our last) to Maine perfectly - the last week of “the season”. Apples picked just around the corner from cabin for homemade apple pie (all the utensils to make one are there, even good sharp knives) and a vibrant view of the blueberry fields driving to and from the cabin. Maine showed herself off grandly for these Texas folks.
The convenience of the cabin’s location to Ellsworth, Bangor and Acadia made it just perfect for our needs. Antiquing is a major part of all our vacation plans and it was a very easy drive to several outstanding shops.
Hope to return during the spring/summer to take better advantage of the lake and hear the loons call. Speaking of the lake - the views are outstanding. Large windows overlooking the water just mere feet away, an extremely comfortable swivel rocker, fuzzy soft blanket and steaming cup of tea (they even provide a tea kettle) was just what I needed to recharge on rainy Autumn morning.
To the Caves - Thank you so much for allowing us the use of your lake cabin it was everything thing we were looking for in a vacation rental and more!
Cheryl- Thank you for one of the nicest reviews we've ever received. We really do try and make it feel like you're at home instead of a rental. Please come back in the late spring/ early summer. It's such a different experience. One I'm sure that you'll love! And thanks again for giving us a try! We appreciate it!
Charming property with all the creature comforts you enjoy at home., beautiful view, quiet location, convenient to nearby sight-seeing locations. Sheree is amazing to work with and even left a sweet note and celebratory bottle of wine!
Thank you for the nice review. We love the house and the location. We're glad you did too! Come back and visit!
Maine Lake House
Flat Rock is a wonderful place to hang out for a few days, which is what we did. We arrived at night so we didn't fully appreciate the location until the next day. The house is built right on the lake and is only steps away from the shore. Easy to cast a line, pull up a chair and read or just take in the scenery. Property location is good for visiting the attractions of the area and all of the amenities that the property has are top notch. House has been completely updated and the only thing I would suggest would be to add an end table and lamp to the living room area for reading. That's a very minor thing for sure..........we enjoyed the property so much we'll certainly recommend it to friends & family that travel to the area. We were there in Oct to experience the New England fall color but I'd love to go back in the summer.
How would I rate this property? Well, I have stayed in quite a lot of VRBO properties........some good, some not so good and some that are just excellent. This property is one of excellent ones. Great spot!
Thank you for your lovely review and thank you for the reading light suggestion!We're glad that you had a great visit! We try our best to think of all the comforts of home and have them available to you! Please come back and visit us anytime!
Very clean, beautiful setting. Found the location easily, even in the dark. :-) Kitchen was equipped with everything we could have needed. We would definitely stay again.
Thank you for your lovely review! Come back and stay with us anytime!
A week at Flat Rock
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Flat Rock Camp. The cabin was cozy and comfortable, with a kitchen that had everything we needed. The views of the lake from the living areas and the master bedroom were lovely. We especially enjoyed listening to the loons and watching the sunset each evening while sitting on Flat Rock! The cabin is conveniently located for day trips to Bangor, Bar Harbor, Acadia and Deer Isle.
Philip~ thank you for the nice review! We loved having you here! Thank you for sending us a beautiful pic of the sunset on the lake. You're always welcome!
Oh what a beautiful spot. Love this area.
A breeze renting this perfect cabin in the lake. A lot bigger than we had expected.
Thank you! Pls come back and visit us again!
