What a great place to relax, unwind and take in nature! If you're thinking about heading to Julia and Dana's cabin, go for it - you'll really love it.
Julia was so welcoming when she met us on our first evening and kindly walked us the minute it takes to reach the almost too beautiful spot overlooking the lake that takes in the changing colours of the water at sunset. We went back the other evenings we were here and took in the beautiful scene over a picnic while we seemingly had the whole lake to ourselves.
The kitchen equipment really allowed us to settle in and enjoy all the lobster and other seafood we picked up coming through the Harbor Fish Market in Portland (the best place for lobster!!).
The wood fire and heater make this a really cosy place to spend the evenings, and the decking was perfect for a morning cup of tea before paddling gently around the lake on the twin canoe.
It would be a real delight to come back to this magical spot in the years to come.
Dana emailed precise directions before our trip that included landmarks. Cabin was easy to locate, and perfectly secluded. We contacted our hosts once we arrived and they offered a tour of the lakefront property. We were unable to take them up on the offer, but they have a very detailed binder of helpful information and directions. They seem to have thought of everything. It really felt like coming home to my grandparents house in Montana. Cozy and comfortable. The wood stove was even ready to light. We were in Maine to see the fall foliage, so it was a bit chilly. We wandered down to the rock ledges down a soft pine path, then came back to light a fire and relax on the super comfy recliner couch. Plenty of firewood available for use. We stopped by the local store and made dinner at the cabin. Kitchen had more than enough cookware and dishes. Coffee and pot on counter ready to use. Water got hot as soon as you turned on the faucet. Gracious hosts, will hopefully bring the whole family back up in the summer to stay and enjoy the lake. Thanks again Dana and Julia!
We had a really great stay! We loved lake, the cozy cabin and simple everything.
Julia and Dan are great hosts! We would come back anytime.
Didn't get the chance to make my reservation. Dana was very communicative and understanding.
It really is the beautiful cozy cottage in the woods. So quiet and peaceful and beautiful and welcoming.
Thoroughly recommended if you want to get away from it all, but like all the creature comforts you have at home.
If you are searching for nature and a quiet place, Dana's Cabin is awesome! Pure nature, a beautiful lake and absolutely quiet!
We met Dana and his wife, they were so friendly and had a great tip for dinner (Lost Kitchen).
We would absolutely recommend this place to everyone who's searching for peace and nature!
Thank you to Dana for hosting us=)
We loved our stay at the cabin! It was even more beautiful than the pictures! Dana was there when we arrived and gave us a great tour of the property. Kayaking in the morning was amazing! Dana also recommended some local places to eat, which was incredibly helpful. Really cannot recommend this cabin enough!!!
Glad you made it to "The Lost Kitchen". Aaron French is a truly amazing, world-class, chef. Come back soon.
We had a wonderful 3 days in Dan & Julia's cabin, just up the slope from lovely, pristine Sandy Pond.. The arrangements for arrival and departure were very clear, and they stopped by our first evening to make sure we were all set. It was our pleasure to meet such sympatico people. The cabin was furnished and equipped with everything we needed for cooking, bathing, being cozy after the sun went down, and good sleeping. There was a kayak at our disposal, although we brought our own. A great area, a wonderful time o y ear to be there. Thank you!
This little, 2-bedroom cabin on Sandy Pond is a gem. Dana and Julia were very friendly, welcoming and accommodating, providing me all the information that I needed about the home and the area, while also being very respectful of my privacy, which I really appreciated.
The cabin is quaint and cozy with a completely stocked kitchen that made cooking al fresco meals for the lake-facing deck or dock very easy. The wood-burning stove is well stocked and ready to go, and the nearby love seat is the perfect place to sip your morning tea and watch the sunrise.
The cabin sits on a very private peninsula, about a 5 minute walk from the Ledges, which is the ideal place for watching sunrises, sunsets, moonrises and wild life. The lake is magical, and a wonderful place for swimming and kayaking. It is it peaceful and private, and the loons and bald eagles are really a treasure. It is truly a nature lover's paradise and a great retreat for a few people looking to get away from the hustle and bustle. I look forward to another visit.
Thanks so much for your thoughtful review. We'd love to host you again. Take care.
Absolutely wonderful! The ledges are one of those beautiful, private, perfect natural spots that can be so hard to find when you're not familiar with a place. Here it is, you've found it. The lake was warm on the first of September. The kitchen is large and well stocked for cooking. The main bedroom has large windows facing east into the woods, which is a wonderful way to wake up. It's very quiet and peaceful here. Plus, of course, all the baseline Airbnb things: it's clean, safe, and the hosts are clear and friendly. And, Dan was flexible about dates. We really loved staying here.
We enjoyed hosting you and hope you return soon. You made Julia's day as the painting is by her mother.
I didn't get a chance to meet Dana, but he and his wife were virtually very friendly. They very clean and considerate while I rebooted the router for the wifi. Thanks guys. Highly recommend!
Thanks Janet, the stay was very nice. Quite the coincidence that you've read my work. Contact me via my Pitzer email and we can talk about your thesis. Take care
The Ward's were great guests, easy to please, and very quiet. would be happy to recommend them and host them anytime.
Dana and Julia stayed at my house for several days and though I never met them, they seemed like great guests. They left the house in good shape, and Julia even left a list of suggestions to improve my home for future "short" people - I guess I better work on my mirror placement! I'd be happy to host them again.
Dana was great! Would be happy to host him again.
Dana and Julia spent several days with us in the Funky Pad Suite over the Thanksgiving Day week, as they spent time with area family. We enjoyed their stay, and wish them well.
Dana just added an extra night. Again, they were awesome! All the best to him and family. :)
Life is people! People like Dana and Julia, the perfect guests, full of life and stories of their living and travels around the world. Dana and Julia are outstanding people, open minded, educated, kind,.. words are not enough to describe them.
We spent a few hours together, having dinner and listening to Fado, but it seemed we have known each other for ages. We don't know when or where, but we are sure we'll meet again.
Everyone at airbnb be sure to accept these guests, because you won't find better ones.
Thank you Dana and Julia for your kindness and friendship.
The best thing about airb&b is people like you two. Stay well "old" friends. We will always have very fond memories or our short time together. We, too, are sure we shall meet again.
... it was a pleasure to have Dana and is wife at my home and be part of there world journey ... i hope to see them again... !!! :)
Likewise! Be sure to look us up if you make it to the US.
Dana and Julia are two amazing guests... and not only that ! they are an inspiring couple, full of energy, ideas and life! Having them like guests has been definitely an enriching experience, an HONOR ! I really really want to find a way to meet them again somewhere in USA and...to you hosts, I recommend you to click on accept immediately if you have a request of staying from them, zero doubts ! Maximum grade !
Ah, such sweethearts! We too hope to meet again in the US. Take care
Dana and Julia are great people. And although we only know each other for a little while it seems that we know each other forever.
As guests they are ... THE guests.
