Reviews for this vacation cabin rental in Lyman, Maine
Far From the Madding Crowd
September 1, 2015
The only reason I did not give a 5 star rating is tht the bathroom could use a new shower. Otherwise, this was a great experience. Michelle and Dean could not have been nicer and the idyllic location was just what we needed. Barkers Pond is indeed crystal clear and the water temp was perfect. We loved kayaking on the pond, building fires at night, and just relaxing on both the dock and the deck. Lyman is very convenient to Kennebunkport, Wells, Ogunquit and Portsmouth.
Sorry I didn't get see all of you off, I didn't realize you were leaving earlier than 11:00 check out. Thanks for mentioning the shower...The shower head did need to be cleaned due to tiny rocks clogging and helped immediately with the water pressure. It is a rustic style shower and most feel it compliments the cabin decor. Someday when the cabin gets fully winterized we plan on reversing the kitchen and bathroom layout. I enjoyed meeting you all hope to have you back again!

Great time !!

We spent a great time at the cabin. The lake is clear and peaceful. The children and we adored the place. The dog Sonny is really kind. The location is near Old Orchard. It is a place to be rented without hesitating. Thank you Michelle and Dean!
Benoit, your family is wonderful and the smiles on the kids facing throughout the week and the letters/pictures they left for us warmed my heart! All these years of renting our cabin we have only had 2 Canadian families stay here and it is So nice To have Canadians visit. We would love to have you come back again!

The Perfect Place to Make Memories
July 29, 2015
This Cabin is a gem! The owners make sure that all your needs are met. They also go above and beyond with little details that you would not think of but added for your comfort and enjoyment. The view of the lake is unbeatable. The waters are crystal clear and teeming with fish. We were very sad to leave because we settled in so nicely and really felt at home. We had a family gathering and got the best meats from Shields Meats ( The cabin owners family business) and we were treated to Michelle Shields fabulous Java Cakes! This location is perfect because you are in such a peaceful setting buy you are just a short drive to all that Maine has to offer. We will rent again without hesitation!
July 18, 2015
This cabin was all as advertised! My family, and our dog Waffle, had the best vacation in a long time! The fishing was great, peace and quiet even better and the call's of the Loon on the pond topped it all off. We visited the shoreline from Portland to Kittery during our stay, all within a few minutes drive. We will be returning next year, if not sooner! Great hidden gem, and owners are so nice! Our dog loves his visits from Sonny, and so did we! Thanks again for a great week!
It was so nice to meet the Beharrell Family. Making memories on Barkers Pond certainly lasts a lifetime it is so nice to hear that other families take home the best memories with them and are looking forward to their return year after year! We love when the whole family including the dog vacation together to complete their family memory, after all it is called Barkers Pond for a good reason!

We had an awesome time. Our rental iwas everything we had hoped. The pond was refreshing and the patio offered us a peaceful retreat and aplace for our family to re-connect together. This rental was dog friendly and our family pet had an equally great tome..

One of the best vacations ever!!!
July 8, 2015
We loved this rustic cabin. The pictures on the listing promise a relaxing and fun time. It was all that and more. The deck overlooking the water is so peaceful. We loved it. We took our dog Casey and he had a great time too. The owners Michelle & Dean were so nice, as was their dog Sonny. We had plans to go do other things, but it was so nice at the cabin we never left except to get groceries. We grilled outdoors and had a fire in the fire pit. It was just an amazingly relaxing time. We hated to leave this tranquil place, but we definitely will be back!!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a weekend getaway. It was so peaceful. We enjoyed kayaking, swimming, and toasting marshmallows over the fire. The cabin is clean and very spacious. Michelle and Dean are very friendly and hospitable. I am looking forward to planning my next vacation for 2014. Thank you again~Kath
Great long weekend

Very comfortable, tastefully decorated cabin on a clear pond. Even in the middle of a cold Memorial Day weekend, the stay was highly enjoyable. Cannot wait to come back in warmer weather. Incredibly gracious hosts.

Great Fun for the entire family. All equipment was made available by Dean and Michelle. They were there to help out us "city" people when we didn't know what to do!! Place is beautifully rustic looking and very clean and neat. Supermarket not far at all. The owners were awesome!!
Great Get Away!
August 6, 2012
This was our second vacation to this cabin. The owners are wonderful and cabin in equipped with everything you could possibly want. Pics and description are very accurate so what you see is what you get. Plan to return again next summer. My son-in-law and grandkids found the fishing to be alot of fun. We watched 4 loons on the pond all week which was a treat. The location is close enough to many other attractions if you want to take off for a day trip. And of course, Walmart is only about 20 min. away. Overall, it was a wonderful week!
Thank you for leaving us a great review! Your vegetables were such a great treat for us and very much appreciated! Looking forward to seeing you again next year(August is half booked for next year, so keep an eye on the availability calendar to be sure to get the week you want for summer 2013. Take care, Michelle

This was a wonderful vacation for my husband and I with our two 14 year old girls. The pond was beautiful, the kids spent a lot of time swimming, kayaking, fishing. We felt secluded but close to everything at the same time. The owners were so nice and helpful. The view was gorgeous, the cabin was cozy and clean. We had a wonderful time and will return. If your looking for a nice place to stay without being charged for all the little extras, this is the place. The owners truly just want you to enjoy your stay and visit again. They go out of their way to give you your privacy but are right there to help you or offer to get you whatever you need. We will be recommending this cabin to all of our friends!

My friend and I had the best time. This cabin was clean and decorated really nice. We fished all day and it is so peaceful and quiet. I would plan on returning to this place any time I need to get away. The owners are kind and respectful of your privacy.

Authentic and quaint cabin on a beautiful pond
October 13, 2011
We had a wonderful stay at this cabin. It was down to earth, warm and inviting with quilts and candles and an old fashion wood burning stove that kept the cabin warm. I loved the atmosphere. It had a gorgeous view of a beautiful, spring fed pond. It was an enjoyable and memorable trip for our my mom's 80th birthday. Children would really love it because of the fishing, canoeing, etc that was available to guests. The location was also great. We went from the mountains to the Atlantic, from Portland to Ogunquit in short day trips. Lastly, and I could go on for a while, the owners were so kind and helpful. We enjoyed seeing them and even their dog who visited us every day. Everything was truly wonderful and I hope that I can return to this rental again.

I rented this place for my parents as a wedding gift. They enjoyed the place so much. Words such as 'beatiful', 'well decorated', 'peaceful', 'everything was there', 'owners were so nice' was all I heard when they returned. Thank you for making our gift special to them! THEY ALSO LOVED YOUR DOGS!!!

We had an absolutely great time! Could not have asked for nicer people to rent from. Dean & Michelle went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed or wanted! They even brought some treats for our great dane Leyna! Leyna had a wonderful time playing with the other dogs and swimming! We will definitely be back A.S.A.P!
August 29, 2010
We had a great time, but I think the dogs had more fun. Lola (german) and Chance (golden) spent all day jumping into the lake and going for walks. They had so much fun I think they slept all the way home. The Shields are great and I plan on going back up next year with friends for a atv trip.

This was the best vacation ever. Our new friends Michelle and Dean were terrific and we felt so welcomed! The pond is beautiful and there is so much to do. Our hosts had prepared for our visit and it could not have been more comfortable.

Great vacation! Just LOVE Maine!!!!
August 1, 2010
We Just got back from Barker's Pond. We had an amazing time. This was our 6th trip to Maine, but our first trip to this area. Lots of canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming, and napping. Went with my family of 4 and golden retriever. Don't know who had more fun the kids or the dog! Something for everyone, and not far from the ocean beaches, great restaurants and shops on the coast. Photos are very accurate on the website. Really beautiful cabin, with all the comforts of home. Everything was so homey and cozy. Slept great at night with all the Maine fresh air. I highly recommend this vacation to anyone looking to kick back and relax and reconnect with family and/or friends. Michelle and Dean were great hosts, we will be back!
September 23, 2009
This cabin was in a great location, everything from shopping to the ocean was just a short drive away yet you felt miles away in the mountains! The deck overlooking the pond was a great place to have you coffee in the morning and just take in the quiet. Best of all we were able to bring Trooper, our bullmastiff, and he had a great time as well! Thank you Michelle and Dean We'll be back! Denise, Bill and Trooper

The host provided a great place to stay. They went the xtra mile to provide everything we needed. There's plenty to do around the area or you can simply veg around the cabin and lake. Going back next year.
Lovely and peaceful

I stayed for part of one week with friends and enjoyed the vacation very much. we BBQed outside each night and enjoyed using the small fire pit for a mini 'campfire' at night. the cabin was rustic but was equipped with linens, pillows, lots of kitchen items, towels, and homey touches. the neighbor pets were especially entertaining. a great getaway!

What a great spot! Right on the pond, with private deck, private dock, boats to use. Even caught some fish! We had a wonderful time and can't thank our hosts, Michelle & Dean enough. They are wonderful people....The cabin was clean, and we felt very "at home" there. Thanks for a great time!

A great vacation! Dean and Michelle Shields host one of the finest get-a-way cabins in all of Maine. It was rustic and quaint and yet had all the amenities you could possibly want and more! A serene lake, kayaks, canoes, fire pit, slide into the lake, deck over the water, wood stove for chilly nites, beautiful sunsets, fishing, church nearby: Mix all the above together and you have a wonderful vacation! Close to shopping too so a rainy day is okay. A really great extra is that you can order your meat and meal items from the Shields - their store only sells the finest cuts of meat. To go Shields Cabin on Barkers Pond once guarantees you'll be going back for future vacations! Thank you Michelle and Dean for being great Hosts!
We didn't want to leave!
September 15, 2008
For our first "extended family" vacation, we could not have asked for more. The Shields were the best hosts and could not have been more accommodating. The pond is quaint and just the right size if you want to get away yet enjoy the daily canoe or kayak ride. A relaxing walk can take you all the way around the pond or a nice fire can keep you visiting into the night. The ocean is only a short drive as are shopping outlets and other amusements. Amenities abound, activities keep children and adults entertained, and being able to have your pet(s) with you helps you to relax. Our thumbs up and strong recommendation for Barker's Pond.
August 27, 2008
We stayed here for a week in August of 2008 and loved it. The Pond is so relaxing and Michelle and Dean are great hosts. Our dog loved the area as well - lots of dog friends and swimming for him! We had the best time. Thanks again.
August 12, 2008
Myself and another family rented this cabin for vacation and we had a wonderful time. The description of the cabin was very true and it had everything we needed. There was plenty of space for sleeping. There was tons to do despite the rain. We enjoyed our time at barkers pond and have already reserved a week for next year! thank you for everything Michelle, Dean and the rest of the family, you made our vacation memoriable.
Fun & Relaxing
August 2, 2008
We had an awesome time. Lots to keep busy if you want. Fishing, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boating, swimming, bbq, campfire. Hammock was great for when you wanted NOTHING to do. Also a great vaca for our dog... swimming, walks around the pond and she made friends with the owner's dogs. The owners, Dean & Michelle Shields were gracious hosts who were very helpful and cared that we had a great time. We would definitely repeat this vacation next year.

What a great place, we had one of the most relaxing vacation ever. Michelle the owner could not do enough for us, we brough our best friend polo (dog) with us and he had a wonderful time swimming in the pond. We have already booked two weeks for next year and can't wait to come back. Thank you Michelle.

We enjoyed a one week stay at this Maine cabin and had a terrific time. The area and pond is so peaceful to sit back and relax. The accomodations were great inside and out. Sitting by the open fire in the Adirondack chairs roasting marshmallows and hot dogs was a plus! Would definitely rent again.

A great place to "decompress and reconnect"!
July 12, 2008
We traveled from Florida to Maine for a quiet, scenic, peaceful vacation. The amenties listed for this rental were exactly what we were looking for (and exceeded our expectations). We all enjoyed canoeing, fishing, swimming, volleyball and horseshoes. Roasting marshmallows in the evening was the perfect touch to ending a great day. This place truly offers the best of both worlds. Sightseeing is availabe in all directions. The Shield's family offered incredible hospitality! We look forward to returning in the near future.

This vacation spot is just perfect if you are looking for peace and relaxation. The location is close to local attractions and shopping. I was pleasantly surprised with the comfortable beds and linens (big plus!). You'll find everything you need for cooking and the Shield's hot dogs are a terrific welcoming gift.
To read a real nice story one of our renters wrote about our cabin.....
