This house was everything I could have wanted and more! My husband and I have always wanted to get up to the Rangeley Lakes region and rent a house on the lake. This house was the perfect size and layout for our party. We spent the week here with 4 kids, aged 9-12 and our 5yr old Boxer. I always hate the beds you get with rental properties. The mattresses are always terrible and the sheets less than comfortable. This house has amazing bed linens, down comforters and very comfortable mattresses! The sheets and towels are included and they are very soft and new. The loft bedroom upstairs was perfect for the 2 older boys and the two girls shared one of the queen beds on the main floor. There is a catwalk in the loft that joins the bedroom to a small, cozy tv/board game nook. This was a great place to send the kids at night so they could watch movies while my husband and I enjoyed the evenings on the wrap around deck. The kitchen is fully stocked with any pan or pot you may need and I loved the gas cooktop. We cooked a lot of really nice meals and only went out to eat twice.
The grounds are really pretty and I was very happy that the house is located at the end of the road. The kids played flashlight tag pretty much every night in the woods, while we adults sat in the Adirondack chairs on the deck, listening to the loons. There is an outside fire pit that is perfect for ghost stories - almost too perfect with the darkness of the woods surrounding us. Scary!
The lake was beautiful and very clean, but we didn't see any moose, unfortunately. This was the perfect "reset and recharge" that we needed. Thank you Chris and Betsy for sharing your lovely home!
