Thanks, Joanne, for a great visit. The banana bread was just the ticket! I'd love to come back sometime when it isn't snowing.
House had a great activity room with a dart board and a couple large tables that could easily accommodate a large group. It was just my wife and I, however, and we took advantage of the space to spread out all our stuff.
Monson is close to Moosehead Lake, and a sleepy little town. We were there for a Tuesday night. The town's barbecue place was closed, so we drove to the next town for dinner. Lots of space, a reasonable price, and unfortunately was raining when we were there so we didn't visit the lake in the back yard.
Joanne met us at our arrival and promptly welcomed us to our residence. The house is ideally located in very quaint and beautiful Monson, on the shore of the lake. The yard from the house stretches down to the lake and dock and we were delighted to learn that we had kayaks at our disposal at our leisure. Joanne was helpful and efficient and we appreciated her support in finding the house and navigating around the area.
We working a lot so we wanted to be away from home with our son of almost 2 years old. The lake is a good distance from the house so I did not worry too much when my boy was out. It run fast at that age! The house was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. It is a quiet and safe place. A great vacation!
Everything was described accurately by the listing. When we arrived, we knew exactly which house we had rented based on the photos. The house is literally a 5 minute walk to a restaurant and general store.
The house is less than a 2 minute walk to the lake where they have a dock, kayaks and swim rafts for guests to enjoy. Fire pit and large lawn for kids to play, plenty of outdoor space.
The house also has 3 bedrooms, 2 rooms with a double (?) bed and one room with 3 singles, and another small room with another. You could easily host a family here for a fun and relaxing week.
Being so close to Moosehead Lake we took the 25 minute adventure up that way. Monson is between the lake and some other small towns with decent breakfast.
Oh, you get the WHOLE house too, even if its just two of you!
PS: Joanne brought us freshly baked muffins after we had arrived. VERY friendly people!
We had a pleasant night's stay here. The residential neighborhood was quiet and you could see the lake at the bottom of a sloping hill in the backyard. Also a firepit was available. It's an older house but clean and comfortable. We walked to a nice breakfast at a local restaurant .
Joanne was great. We never actually met, since my companion and I checked in very late and left very early the next morning, but that's the point - Joanne made it easy for us. The house was fine, the shower had plenty of hot water and good water pressure, we enjoyed the muffins and coffee that Joanne left for us. Obviously, I can't review the neighborhood, etc. This is the place for a family or a group of friends to stay.
We are parents of five somewhat grown children...self-employed hardworking and have an extra house next door...why not share our lakefront home with others??? We love the outdoors, and love living in vacatoionland. Tom is a registered MAINE guide who knows the best fishing,hunting,and hiking spots around...he might mention a few...we love company yet are busy people, so if you need us just ask..
