WOULD LOVE TO REVISIT

I have just completed my vacation at this cottage and I enjoyed my time there. Communication with Rob was excellent from booking to departure. THE CAMP...I arrived last Saturday on 8/23. It was just me and my dogs. I did not use most of the cottage. Only walked upstairs once to see it, although, the view of the lake from up there is beautiful. Too difficult for my senior dogs to walk up the stairs. There is a microwave, coffee maker, teapot, stove, refrigerator, cable TV, VCR, and DVD player...all the amenities of home. The TV works fine unless you are trying to watch a VCR movie. The volume does not come through too loud and there is a high pitch that is disturbing. I did not try the DVD player. I was looking for a radio for music. I did not find one. There is a wood stove in the living room that I did not use. The bathroom is small with a shower. The bedroom on the first floor is where I slept. It was convenient. The bed was a bit hard, however, I did not expect it to be like my mattress at home. THE OUTSIDE There is a fenced in yard that I LOVED, especially for my dogs. There are horseshoes that I did not use. A tether ball, which my dogs enjoyed (so much that I purchased a new one.) A fire pit with wood available, which I did not use. There are boats available. The dock is nice to sit on and relax as well as the wrap around porch and picnic table. Easy entry into the water, which was great. Not too cold or warm. I had great weather and floated on the water a few days. I was sad when I arrived that there was not a gas grill. I was going to bring my travel grill and decided not to. There is a charcoal grill that I did not utilize. I like to go running. If you want to do this, I would leave the yard and take a right. There is plenty of room on the road to run this direction. If you go left, there is not any paved area for you to run. Be safe. If you need any swimming or ski supplies, leave the yard, take a left and approx. 1/2 mile on the left is a store. The staff was great, they inflated my float, had great clothing, and friendly prices. Shopping is not too far away in Bridgton. Again, thank you Rob for allowing me to rent your chalet. I had a very nice time. Best Regards Janet L

Thank you Janet for the nice review. It's hard to find a VCR that works nowadays. Whoever thought that would be a problem!

A little piece of heaven

My family and I stayed a week at the chalet for the first time this summer, I do have to say I was pleasantly surprised the house as small as she is was plenty of space for my family of four, and one dog. The house was clean and airy when we arrived. The view of Shawnee Peak and the pond was breathtakingly beautiful! We all had a wonderful week relaxing on the dock and going on boat rides watching the most incredible sunsets!! Having the fenced in yard was a HUGE piece of mind knowing that my dog could walk around the property and enjoy its grounds as much as we did all the while being safe and secure. The owner Rob was pleasant and a pleasure to do business with. He made sure any concerns or questions we may have had were addressed immediately. The only negative I can say was the DVD player sound didn't work and the lack of space for storage for the food we brought was limited. All in all my family and I had the best vacation we ever had and we can't wait to visit Maine again next summer and return to the chalet that we now call a little piece of heaven!

Wonderful Family Reunion

We live in FL and rented the house for a week to hold a family reunion with our relatives that live in various parts of Maine. It was wonderful. Everything you would expect from a rustic camp and more. We are already planning next years vacation and this house is towards the top of the list.

Great Location.

Our family of four spent the last few days of 2012 in this chalet. It was somewhat rustic and a little dusty, but overall a comfortable place to stay. The views are spectacular. The DVD player and remotes were not working, but the scenery outside (day or night) was so incredible we didn't care. The whole cabin stayed very warm all weekend, the wood stove was wonderful. The location of this chalet was perfect for skiing and shopping. We all imagined it would be really fun in the summer as well. We would stay here again, but we would bring our own batteries, DVD player and 'swiffers'. We would recommend this chalet to anyone.

Rob Leatherbee

Owner's reply:

The DVD player and remote we're fine - the buttons just need to be pressed hard. I can understand why guests might be reluctant to press too hard. I invite all my patrons to call my private cell phone at any time should questions or concerns arise. Regarding the slight dust, I'll try harder!

Repeat Renters

My friends and I stayed at Rob's chalet last year the weekend of New Years and had a great time, so we've rented it again this New Years. It has everything you need to have a great time including the nice wood heat in the winter. We show up, get the wood stove going, go grab a drink at the bar, and when we come back it's nice and toasty. Initially we thought the chalet was buried in the woods somewhere, but it's right off the main drag and you would never know it. We had 4 people and there was more than enough room for all of us. Highly recommended!

Perfect Getaway

Our stay at the chalet was great. It was well equipped with anything you might need and well kept. Very clean. The perfect size for a small family. Bigger inside then it looks from the road. The water and area was beautiful. Good fishing, very relaxing. Even though it is right off a main road it was private and quiet. I hope to visit again next summer.

Lake House

Great Value! Camp "quaint". View was absolutely AMAZING! A very relaxing week.

Great Week Away

Even though you are on Route 302 this chalet fells like you are way out in the woods and it is right on the lake, which is crystal clear. The chalet is stocked with everything you need and even comes with a Sunfish, a canoe, and a row boat. Whether it is swimming, fishing, or sitting around a campfire it is a very relaxing setting. Restaurants and stores are a few minutes away but you might not want to leave the chalet.

Wonderful secluded and cozy spot

I live in the area but needed some extra space for visiting family. Although I knew the general area where the cabin is located, I was amazed to see such a wonderful, secluded place and view, so close to everything and yet very low profile- I had no idea this little oasis was there. The cabin is right on the water, with big windows so you can look out and enjoy it at all times. I had fun fishing off the dock. The decks with connecting ladder were quite a treat. Hoped to trade my house and stay there myself- but no such luck! Would be fabulous to stay in winter, and watch the skiers make their way down Shawnee Peak. I was concerned that there might be a lot of road noise- but once you enter through the gate it feels like you are a million miles away from everything, and I forgot the road was even there. Cabin is simple and small- no frills- but fun, clean, and well stocked. Definitely has a camp cabin feel - if you like that, you will be very pleased. Great for winter or summer.

A Lovely Spot for a Summer Week

After staying there 3 times over the last 6 years, I would like to recommend the Chalet as a beautiful spot on the corner of a lovely lake. Each time I have brought my family here we have had a great time on Moose Pond: canoeing, swimming, and – a family favorite – sailing, using the owner’s Sunfish sailboat. The cottage is A-frame style and compact, but it has a lot of sleeping space, a well-supplied kitchen, a charcoal grille, and some good extras, like wireless Ethernet. Its owners make a good effort to keep it well maintained. It is a great place to cook-out, eat at the picnic table, and enjoy the loon calls with the coming on of evening -- or to take your morning coffee, sit on the porch, and look up from your book at the lake and summer sky.

chalet on moose pond,bridgton,maine

the chalet is on a great location and has 'beautiful' views of the pond and shawnee peak,close to restaurants and shops in bridgton,maine as well as a movie theather. the chalet could use hot water in the sink in the bathroom and the dvd player speaker had an issue with scratchy sound; we could not watch the dvd(s) we brought...other than that the short -long weekend get away was nice!

Amazing

The camp was amazing. The water was nice, and the view was beautiful. The camp its self was well equipped with many amenities. Many sources of entertainment are available that come with the camp. The boats were nice to go out on and view more of the pond. Also The camp makes for a great large family enviroment.
