“The perfect week in Maine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2009

How is it possible to have everything perfect? Jane and her family and staff of wonderfully talented musicians and singers transported us to a true vacation: relaxing, good food, companionable people, fabulous music. My favorite place was The Point, a jut of land into the lake, with comfy chaises and a sign at the beginning of the point which says "Quiet, please. Readers." Love it! Jane thinks of everything! Ice water in coolers and fresh towels by the beaches. Need a grab bar in the bath tub? Done. "Quissy" umbrellas and firewood for the fireplace come with every cabin. Need a ride to the dining center? The golf-cart boys are there in a moment (and you'll see them on stage later!) We were newbies and worried about all those people who had been there for years. Not to worry. After 3 days, our waitress thought the six of us had come together; we only met there! It isn't inexpensive, BUT it's worth every penny and more. Such a spirit of friendliness and ease pervades the place.

An amazing experience, we've been coming for eight years, and we're still not "old-timers". With a different performance each night, from opera to a musical, this place offers plenty to do. In "pre-season" this year we saw dress rehearsals of Die Fledermaus (in English) and South Pacific, as well as a musical review. Our busboy sang the lead in Die Fledermaus... We spent one day relaxing on the beach (Lake Kezar is one of the nicest lakes I've ever swum in), and drove in to north Conway for some shopping on another day. Everywhere around us was beautiful scenery, wildflowers, beautiful flower gardens, and the sounds of birds. A favorite moment was spent on the beach, listening to a rehearsal of the musical review, while splashing in the lake. Meals are always a highlight, and the wine list is short, but superb (and well priced also). The cabins are comfortable and beautiful with rustic elegance - I've never slept better! There's no TV or phone service in the cabins, so you REALLY get to relax.

This is a unique (in my experience) proposition: a hotel staffed by musicians who perform a variety of musical styles for their guests every night. If that sounds a bit too much, then suspend your cynicism and go with it! You do not need to be musical (I’m not) to enjoy the novelty of Quisisana. The food is of a very high standard, especially considering everyone eats at almost the same time in order to make it to that evening’s musical production. The accommodation is in comfortable cabins (largely) dotted around the wooded shores of Lake Kezar. The lake is fantastic for swimming, sailing, skiing and other water sports. The service is informal but highly professional.
Quisisana is a perfect blend of the Great Outdoors, culture and very good cuisine, but perhaps the best review is the fact that guests (Young, Old, Families) return year after year – indeed the present owner is a former guest, who loved it so much that she bought the place!
