Great space. Had a great time camping on the lake. The train was unexpected excitement! John was quick to respond and delt with a small problem with aplomb!

We actually had a lovely time here - it's a beautiful spot and a really nice escape from the rest of the world. That being said, there were a few opportunities for improvement that I wanted to share. The main thing was that the water wasn't working when we first got there. However, John came and fixed it the next day. Secondly, in the pictures/description there is mention of a propane BBQ grill - the surprise is that it's just a portable propane stove (so plan accordingly). Lastly, the dishes weren't clean and we had to prewash anything we wanted to use. Regardless, we made it work and still had a great weekend here!

Be prepared to bring candles and lighter! We arrived in the late evening and the athmosphere in the woods would be better if it was not that dark. Thanks to John for the wood for making fire.

This was a great getaway for my partner and I. The cabin felt very secluded but we were not too far away from "civilization" and had fun exploring nearby Belgrade Lakes, Hallowell and Augusta. We loved that it was pet friendly and our city dog loved being able to run around freely. The lake is beautiful and serene - not much of a beach but with more of a rocky edge. Just as a heads up there is an active train track nearby, which we found out in the middle of the night when a train passed by!

This little cabin was exactly what I was looking for to unwind from the city grind. It seemed like just the right balance of being secluded yet close enough to anything you might need. I really enjoyed just sitting by the fire and listening to the loons as the moon rose over the lake. It was very relaxing. Booking, check-in, and communications all went smoothly. I would second the "extra candles/flashlight" :) I would definitely like to spend more time enjoying this little gem of a spot!
