I wish there was an option for 10 stars. This is by far the nicest house and location you will find in the Greenwood, ME area. Lisa, our host, went above and beyond the call of duty with her hospitality.
I have been visiting this area since I was a child way back in 1962. I have stayed on North Pond, South Pond, Round Pond, Twitchell Pond, and Lake Christopher at least thirty five times over the years. This was by far the best accommodations ever. Upon our arrival we were pleased to find a gift bag with all the supplies necessary for S’mores, along with pancake mix, maple syrup, coffee, candies, etc and if that wasn’t enough a fresh (still warm) strawberry rhubarb pie and fresh baked bread was delivered to our door the following morning.
The house and grounds are very clean. The kitchen was well stocked. There were toys in the house for the young ones and toys down at the beach. Plenty of outdoor chairs in the yard, around the fire pit, and down at the beach. The location is very secluded, peaceful and quiet yet close to the town of Bethel where you will find great dining and anything else you might need. This house is so well equipped I can’t think of a single item that was missing. The listing description is 100% accurate with no surprises.
Oh, did I mention our host Lisa? Lisa went out of her way to make sure our vacation went well and had everything we needed. From the day we booked until the morning we departed Lisa was there for us. She provided an eleven page guest guide with directions, attractions and restaurants in the area. I will end this review by saying THANK YOU Lisa for being the nicest person and host EVER.

This was our 2nd trip back to Lisa's home and we are already planning on returning next year. Our first trip was for a ski vacation at Sunday River this past winter and we loved the house so much we came back for a summer stay. I can't decide which season is better we loved it all so much.
This house offers so much more than other homes we have stayed at due to all the baby equipment and was perfect as I have 3 small children all under age 5. The house was perfect for our mini family reunion of 10 adults and 4 children this summer. With linens provided for beds and bathroom, a well stocked pantry, a wonderful private waterfront with the cutest little beach we could not have asked for more. As none of the children were proficient swimmers the beach worked very well as it is sandy and no scary deep drop off. We were greeted with a great gift basket with maple syrup (made from the trees at her home ), pancake mix and fresh coffee beans Very clean, super convenient to ski area, town, local activities and comfy for our group.
The house has 3 floors so we could spread out and not be stuck all on one floor which is key with small children taking naps. We roasted marshmallows at the firepit, listened to the loons at night on the peaceful deck and even saw a bald eagle hovering on a few days too. We are already trying to plan our next Sunday River Ski Vacation for next winter!
