      5/5 Excellent


        Ralph is an awesome person to deal with and this property is just amazing. The location is so secluded and private. The house is so warm and inviting. It's very rare that I'm comfortable in someone else's home..... This was not the case here. You instantly feel like you belong. Beds are comfortable and the place has everything you need to relax and enjoy lakeside living. Center Pond is gorgeous. Bald Eagles, Loons and Osprey were around daily. Swimming was great in the pristine water. Kayaking was so relaxing and gave us a great opportunity to see the wildlife and beautiful lake. The fire pit was great for campfires and s'mores. We loved eating dinner at the picnic tables looking at the water. The sky at night was insane. We saw dozens of shooting stars and satellites orbiting while listening to the Loons calling back and forth. The property was located in a great spot for us to get our first Maine experience. We made trips to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. We also spent a day in Baxter State Park driving the scenic roads and hiking. Overall, we loved this property. It's a great value and Ralph is so nice. Book this place and fall in love with Maine. After this trip, we are official Maine-iacs!!!

          Great quiet cabin

          Nice cabin for the 2 of us. Great view of the pond (more like a lake). Great metal dock. Kitchen was roomy and equipped with most everything you need. We cook a lot, so that was nice to have. Area was very quiet and secluded. Nice back yard with picnic tables, hammock and firepit. Ralph was a great host. Would definitely recommend.

            The cottage and lake were exactly what the "Doctor Ordered". Could not have been any better!

            We have travelled and stayed in many places but this was the best. The lake was great, kayaking was perfect. The cottage was immaculate, well supplied with linens, towels, kitchen utensils and great directions and instructions. The lake was great and the site was private, quiet and beautiful. Directions to the local area were right on, locations for restaurants, groceries and sightseeing were perfect. Thanks so much for letting us stay at your cottage!

              Looking for quiet and secluded wrapped up in an amazing cabin? You found it!

              One must travel 2 miles of unpaved roads through beautiful wooded land to reach this very well stocked cabin. The kitchen has everything you could think of. The cabin was beautiful inside with the master bedroom in a cozy and very comfortable loft. We used the kayaks, they and the PFDs and paddles were in great condition. We ate outside at the picnic tables and enjoyed watching the dragonflies. We listened to loons and used the fire pit to roast marshmellows. My husband finished 3 books just sitting on the dock enjoying the amazing weather. There were big floats and an electric pump to fill them. The water was warm enough to swim in and we were glad we took Ralphs advice and brought water shoes. It is a very clear big pond but the rocks were slippery. We have never stayed anywhere so organized! We went to decompress from stressful jobs but if we wanted restaurants and shops Bangor is not far away. In, Dover Foxcroft we ate homemade ice cream at Butterfields and in Sangerville we visited a farm stand and enjoyed fresh corn, delicious fruit pies, bread still hot from the ovens and yummy whoopie pies. Just outside of Sangerville there is a chamber of commerce with lots of info and friendly staff.
