great lake house!!

August 13, 2015

we rented this lovely home the last week of july 2015. we are 2 families with 4 adult and 3 kids and there was more than enough room for all of us. the house was fully equipped with everything we needed. we set up the badminton net the 2nd day and played several times every day. there were plenty of sand toys for the little ones and the beach was great. the house has a comfortable leather sectional that is not pictured in the description, lots of room for all 7 of us to sit on a rainy evening and play charades. there were lots of animal sightings, with a resident eagle and many loons and a pretty big water snake included! the loons call is so beautiful and haunting, i think we heard them every day! the kitchen is decently sized, the only problem we found was the fridge, which was older, had to be closed properly every single time or it stayed ajar, leaving the stuff inside very warm. hopefully the owners will update that one little glitch soon, if not, now we know and can learn to live with it next time we come. the kayaks and canoe were great to explore the HUUUGE lake! we thought about bringing our own kayaks since we had never used the *sit-on-top* style, but we didn't and we were glad we didn't bother, the ones they provide are really fun to use and not at all hard to use. overall, we had a blast, the kids loved pingpong and the water and the house was very beautifully landscaped, we would recommend this home to anyone. the area is very central and there is a grocery store nearby as well as places to pick up a pizza or chinese food. it's a great, easy rental for families with kids or even older folks who like to enjoy the quiet but still have access to civilization. one thing i should note, we were there for a week and there were barely any motor boats at all on the lake! that is a pet peeve of ours, we like to be on the water and have it be peaceful and feel like we are on our own out there and it really did feel that way! this is a big lake but it does not feel like many "big" lakes feel. it is not overbuilt, or overpopulated, it's quiet and lovely and you will be glad to be there!

Owner's reply:

Fridge is on our list to fix or replace next year, this past year we replaced lots of the glass door panels and added a Kuerig coffee machine and had to unexpectedly replace the dishwasher, so the fridge will be done by next summer. Glad you had a great time.

If you are looking for a quiet peaceful vacation this is the place. The lake house is just as pictured in the site. The kayaks and canoe are a great bonus. Everything you need is there from books to board games even horse shoes and ladder ball.The view is beautiful

October in Maine

November 1, 2011

The "camp" was absolutely fantastic and much more than we expected. The pictures don't do it justice. It was well stocked and furnished. We had 10 people for dinner one night and were not crowded at all. There was plenty of seating for eating as well as for sitting around watching Sunday afternoon football. The location was perfect for our many day trips to various parts of the state. The lake is gorgeous and we even caught fish from the dock. There was a kayak, bicycles and fishing gear for us to use. The Varneys thought of everything. We are so glad we found this place and would definitely rent it again on our next trip to Maine.

We had a great time on vacation this year. The house and property were comfortably, quiet, private & relaxing. The use of the canoe and ping pong table was a bonus. we never had a vacation where we could sit on the porch outside or the couch inside and see bald eagles fly by or land in the trees. We would recomend this house to everyone. Thanks The Gardner Family

Great Week of Camp

July 23, 2010

We wanted to take the time to let anyone interested in renting this camp that it is a great spot. We come to Maine every year for a week of camp on a lake and this was the best camp\lot that we have rented in 8 years - especially if you have kids. It has all the amenities you can think of, great sandy beach (with fire pit, canoe and kayaks), great camp layout inside - and its situated a few minutes from town (yet the lot is very private) - and is on a great, clean lake with good fishing and swimming for everyone (close to the boat launch too). We will definitely rent here again and look forward to our time at this camp in the future. Just thought others might like to know.

Great Vacation

July 11, 2009

Property is wonderful for families. Very clean and well kept. House is bright and airy. Small enough to be cozy yet large enough for private time. Instructions for maintaining the property during our stay were ready available with clear explanations. Contacted by owner during stay to check if we were in need of anything which was a nice personal touch. Would recommend this location to everyone who wants to experience Maine at it's finest!!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

"Great place for spending the Summer of 2011. This year around lake home on Lake Annabessacook is surrounded by rolling lawns and woodland habitat offering plenty of privacy. Expansive windows and decks offer multiple views of the lake, islands and wild life. During our stay we saw loons, Canadian Geese, fox, muskrats, wild turkeys as well as a doe and her two fawns. We were able to play golf at three area golf courses as well as attend the Monmouth Theater's professional plays, all within a 15 minute drive. The Maine Coast, LLBeans's, and Portland are all within an hour's commute. The property's beach area and dock were ideal for young children, and the Kayaks and canoe allowed for lake exploration. We really enjoyed the paddle to Great Island for swimming and walking the nature trails. This vacation home was well furnished and the owners were quick to respond if anything was needed."
