Recent renters have commented “What a wonderful time we had. Two weeks of great fun in this spotlessly clean, peaceful, beautiful place where books abound and the kitchen is well stocked. We had a dinner party for family and needed only veggies from the local farmer and an array of fresh seafood from a nearby fish monger (a.k.a. road side stand). Sleeping quarters seem endless – take your choice, the solitude of one of the lovely bedrooms or the vast, seemingly open air space on the grand second floor porch. The dock, kayaks, canoe, and row boat make a cruise on the lake with its islands, rock formations and loons an easy outing. A few steps lead to the water and a sandy bottom where we all (ages 10 to 75) enjoyed swimming every day. “
The Little Gatsby House is close by to local supermarkets, restaurants, a driving range, antique shops, art and craft galleries, clothing and gift shops. – all 10 minutes from the lake. And less than a half hours drive to visit the Old Port on Portland’s waterfront.
