A Great Vacation Get-a-way!

This rustic lakefront cabin had everything to offer that you would need for a quiet get-a-way vacation. Fishing off the dock or on our boat and the kayaking was beautiful on this quiet lake. We were able to see many eagles and also saw a nest with babies eagles, loons, and many other wildlife. The screened in porch was definitely an added bonus, allowing us to sit and listen to the loons well into the night while enjoying the campfire. The camp was also equipped with linen, utensils, towels, TV's and everything that we needed for the week. We would certainly recommend this cabin as a wonderful retreat for a vacation and would certainly considering going back again one day. We were also glad that we had the opportunity to meet Steve, the owner. George and Sally Gilbault

Owner's reply:

Thank you Sally and George! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and the good fishing on Torsey Lake. I love every minute I spend there for the beauty, nature, privacy and quiet but listening to mystical calls of the loons at night certainly adds to the experience. Thank you for taking good care of the place - we would welcome you folks back any time.

Peaceful vacation

We enjoyed using the cabin. Spent most of our time on the dock , kayaking and relaxing on the swing on the screen porch. Was a very peaceful spot, not a lot of activity on the lake, great to just get away. Tons of loons and other wildlife.

Thank you Patrice. We are glad you enjoyed your stay (and the loons)!

Great Week!!

We had a great week! The cabin had everything we needed. The fire wood was split, seasoned and ready to go. The notebook worked great on the WIFI. The fishing on the lake was great. The small market (store) was well stocked and close by. We will stay there again!!

Wonderful camp, well equipped, great value!!!!!

My wife and I stayed at Steve's camp last summer and are definitely planning on staying again this year. Great old Maine camp in a great location. The screen porch really adds to the whole experience giving you a place to hang out even if the weather doesn't co operate. Wood stove was also a great addition to what was already a perfect weekend getaway. Met the owner who happened to be coming in as we were leaving. Great guy, easy to work with. Overall wonderful time.

Owner's reply:

Thanks Dean, glad you enjoyed your stay. Your family is welcomed to return to our cabin anytime.

The perfect blend of comfort and rustic charm

We spent a wonderful long autumn weekend here. It was very peaceful and relaxing, sitting by the heat of the woodstove reading with the fall foliage reflecting off the lake outside the windows. Finding a great selection of books to pick from was a bonus! We noticed that a nearby orchard was having its annual apple festival as we toured the local back roads and checked out a couple of antique shops. Although the weather was chilly, as Maine can be in October, the little wood stove kept the cabin toasty warm. We never turned on the propane heater. Having a full kitchen with gas range and dishwasher allowed us to cook and eat in all weekend. This property manages a fine balance between feeling like a rustic Maine cabin or camp while having all the amenities of a modern home.

the way life should be...

This is a great place to come to after a long hard week at work. It is peaceful, calming and rejuvinates. The fishing is great. I have landed many large mouth bass right from the dock. It is a great location for day trips to local tourist sites i.e the state house and the fort along the Kennebec river.
