Reviews for this vacation home rental in Skowhegan, Maine
A place for making wonderful lasting memories
November 14, 2014
We had the most amazing 2 week stay in August, the first week with our friends and the second just me and my daughter. The camp is in a beautiful location, the house itself was clean and welcoming and had everything we needed, it was obvious that this is a well loved family camp. We spent half our time at the camp, swimming, kayaking, cooking, eating, using the fire pit and the BBQ, relaxing and enjoying the beauty and tranquillity of the lake. The rest of the time we explored far and near - Moosehead Lake, Fort Knox and return visits to Acadia and Belfast. Locally we enjoyed visits to the Skowhegan farmers market (the pizza is out of this world - my daughter still dreams about it!) and Lakewood Theatre and restaurant where the food is fabulous. If we ever make the long journey back from London UK to Maine we would definitely want to stay here, in the meantime we have a wealth of wonderful memories to draw on.

My brother and our wives had a Great time at this property. Every detail in the description of this rental property EXCEEDED our expectations. There were no surprises. Place clean , beautiful location , plenty of room, laundry, linens ,dishwasher, great fishing, dock for our boat, kayaks and life jackets which our wives used every day when we went fishing ,and fire pit to relax by at night. A few miles away in town were some very good restaurants we liked when we didn't cook on the outside grill which was at the back door by the picnic table. You will also find churches and shopping downtown. My brother travels from NJ while I live in southern Me. WE are already talking about coming back next year. We just have to decide on a date.

beautiful spot very quiet and peaceful close to all amenities with in 5 min. beautiful lake with lots of boats and skiers to watch seen a few fish break and loons never went swimming sandy beach is small had a 21/2 yr old she had plenty to entertain her sand box and we bought a $5.00 pool and she played in that so it wasn't a problem to keep her away from the lake there is everything you need in the camp the cell reception isn't the best but you can find service walking around .

Once again our family had a wonderful time at the camp. We came from North Carolina and California to join in to visit our Maine kids and grandkids. Great weather, good local food and family made this yet again a fun time for kids and grandkids. Could not keep the grandkids out of the water! Hope to continue to make it a family tradition.

ample-sized house on a lake
August 3, 2010
The house was clean and spacious enough for two small families. Furnishings a little sparse. We were the first rentals after it was cleaned up for vacation use. The location is lovely. Isolated and quiet but less than 10 minutes from some big stores and restaurants.
