The SpaceLake House Getaway Do you want a kid-friendly place for a family vacation? In search of a spot for a romantic getaway, a spiritual retreat, time with a group of friends who love skiing and/or being together? Do you need a quiet beautiful setting in which to study, read, write, create, reflect, recharge, work, or pursue a spiritual quest? Do you like skiing and/or other winter sports? Do you want an escape surrounded by natural beauty? Would you like a personal spiritual or yoga retreat? Are you an artist, writer or musician who wants to tap into your inner well of creativity? Our beautiful, year round vacation home is located in The Western Maine Mountain Region on 19 wooded acres on Clearwater Lake, one of Maine's most pristine, spring-fed lakes. The lake has six-and-one-half miles of shore line with a depth of 135 feet. It is near the culturally rich college town of Farmington, Maine and a little under 200 miles distant from Boston. It is nourishing at Clearwater Lake. Here, we can slow down and not be interrupted. One can both commune with mother nature and their our own inner being. We love how deeply we sleep, and how rested and revivified we feel when we return to the city. We love how we feel connected with nature and each other after visiting. We love how kids respond by finding adventure and fun outside their usual activities. Enjoy a morning cup of tea or coffee out on the large deck in the warmer weather. In cooler or inclement weather gaze at the lake and its surrounding wooded hills through the floor-to-ceiling living room windows. In winter weather, enjoy the panoramic view from inside looking through the picture windows at the surrounding mountains, the trees, the snow and ice, and sky.

The SpaceThe cabin was built in 1970 by Rob's father and grandparents when there was no Lake Drive or Christmas Lane; they brought the materials across the lake by boat and cleared the lot by hand to start. Then they built Lake Drive to make it easier. The mason who built the stone fireplace for them did so by hand, using stones he spent over a year searching for and finding one by one within 20 miles of the Guest Lodge; none were hewn, but used just as they were found. The Lodge was since renovated in 2013 and 2014, adding many improvements while carefully maintaining the cabin's original simplicity and charm. There are families who have been coming to the Guest Lodge since the 70's, with children who now return as adults with their families. The 81-acre lake, known by locals as 'Staples Pond,' was immediately dubbed Santa Claus Lake by Rob's father upon seeing an aerial view - it looks just like Santa with his pack on. Whether your great love is hiking, biking, swimming, canoeing, antiquing, fishing, riding an antique steam train, renting a jet ski, or photographing the beautiful mountains, lakes and wildlife, the Franklin County area holds many interesting and fun things to see and do. Although many guests simply prefer to rest and enjoy the mesmerizing peace and quiet, wildlife and fishing or hiking right on this beautiful forest property, and only leave to go to Giffords' for some ice cream. Guest AccessYou will have the whole cabin and property to yourself, private access to the lake with swimming dock, and use of the canoe, row boat and enclosed outdoor shower. (Note: outdoor shower is in use between Memorial day and Labor Day.) Interaction with GuestsWe are only a phone call away if you have any questions or concerns. We also provide you with lots of information about the cabin and the surrounding area before you go, to help you plan your trip...and there is a big looseleaf notebook in the cabin, filled with brochures and info on area attractions. The NeighborhoodThe Lodge is at the end of a dirt road surrounded by woods on an 81-acre lake about 20 minutes drive from the nearest town (which is Farmington, a fun little college town). There are about 9 camps around the lake, but none within sight of the Lodge except for the cabin across the lake. The tap water in the cabin flows from the well and tastes like Poland Spring (which is not that far away). Getting AroundYou need a car to access the Guest Lodge and to get places. But you can also enjoy beautiful hikes through the woods right from the property. Nearest train is in Portland (2 hours drive) and nearest airport is Augusta (1 hour), then Portland (1 hour, 50 minutes) and then Bangor (2 hours), Manchester, NH (3 hours, 15 minutes), Boston Logan Airport (3 hours, 30 min.). Other Things to NoteThere's a charcoal grill on the back porch. There is no cable service in Temple, Maine, but we have a DVD player and movies to watch, as well as bookshelves filled with books, and some games and puzzles. There is a printer/scanner/copier on the desk in the living room. The great room has a big, strong ceiling fan which is wonderful when the temperature rises, and keeps the heat circulating when the weather is cold as well. There is also an air-conditioner and an attic fan that helps keep the temperature down on those rare hot days in Maine, as well as two ceiling fans out on the back porch. We are a seasonal property - open from Memorial Day through Thanksgiving and closed during the winter months. During the summer we rent only by the week (Saturday to Saturday), and in the fall we have a 3-night minimum.

The SpaceFun, roomy design with a Maine woods spirit. Sleeps 5. 2 bedrooms, one on first floor and one in the loft. Sofa Sleeper in common area. Porch and Deck. Great for cross-country and snowshoeing in the winter. Very cool woodstove. Fire pit in the meadow and a cozy hammock hidden between a couple of spruce trees. Downtown Farmington is great--University of Maine Farmington, good restaurants, a great independent bookstore and Renys (a Maine tradition!). We are about 45 minutes from great hiking trails—Appalachian, Mount Blue, Tumbledown. Kingfield is 25 minutes, Sugarloaf area about 35 to 40 minutes. Rangeley Lake area about 45 minutes. Clearwater Lake is about 10 minutes. We have lived in Maine about 10 years. Victoria is an artist from Cambridge, MA. Bill is a somewhat retired Episcopal priest from the Deep South. We love Maine and the Southwest, especially the high desert of New Mexico. When we travel, we stay at Airbnb residences as often as we can. We've had a blast building and decorating the carriage house. We are really excited about hosting. We love to share our small farm and our more rural way of being in the world (we spent many, many years in the city). We love our animals. We have five rescued miniature donkeys (Daisy, Hazel, Lulu, Rose and Rosta), a baker's dozen of free range chickens (plenty of fresh eggs for you!), a very gentle rescued black and tan coonhound, Honey, who is out and about the grounds, and two cats, Percy and Zoe, who roam here and there but hunker down at night in the farmhouse. Welcome! Guest AccessGuests will have the carriage house to themselves, about 1050 square feet. Interaction with GuestsWe are usually around during the day. We love to connect but are not helicopter hosts. We want to make sure your stay is great for you. Come over to the farmhouse and knock on the door anytime! The NeighborhoodWoods separate farm from highway. Great neighbors nearby, through woods, but not in sight. Getting AroundWe have plenty of space for parking. Other Things to NoteSo the song goes: "Sweetly sings the donkey at the break of day. If you do not feed [her] this is what [she] says. Hee haw, hee haw, hee haw, hee haw!" The donkeys like to be fed early. If we are not there on time, well, they may greet you in the morning. Could be before coffee!

The SpaceThere is ample parking for up to three vehicles just make sure to leave space for the neighbors to pass by to get to their houses. The shed next to the parking area will be locked but behind it is where you will find the trash and recycling bins. Please remember in Maine we do recycle plastics and paper products. We also separately collect and recycle "returnables" (any can or bottled product that has a .05 cent deposit) All of these efforts keeps the lake and Maine clean! The grill of the back main entrance is there to use and by all means use it! Just make sure to treat it well so our other guest will be able to enjoy and make sure to shut off propane valves when not in use (don't want to burn the place down). Camp also has its own private dock attached to a sizable deck to have those family meals right on the lake! Take caution when entering and exiting the lake because rocks on the water do get slippery and you don't want a bruise/bump to remember your stay. There are kayaks and a canoe for you to enjoy the crystal clear water just make sure to wear a life vest and take bottled water and sunscreen with you. It does get hot out on the lake! Also be cautious of motor boats and stick to the shoreline when paddle boating. The camp is a camp meaning that it has running water, a hot shower and electricity but it is a tighter space inside for a large group of people but during the summer months you will want to be outside most of the day. The hot water tank is also a fair 60 gallon tank so let it have time to recover between showers. Guest AccessThe entire building is open to you. The only locked space is the small shed out back next to the parking area. Interaction with GuestsThe surrounding area offers a wide variety of outdoor exploration not just lakeside fun and if you would like info on the area or recommendations on where to go we are always a phone call away to help guide you in the right direction. The NeighborhoodQuite little lakeside community full of families that have been there for generations. All very friendly people with an aptitude for summer fun and proclivities! Getting Around10 minute short drive from Farmington (closest large town for groceries and shopping) with a 1/2 mile drive down a well groomed dirt road. Other Things to NoteSummer in Maine can be a fickle thing, it may rain, stay sunny, get a little chilly, or a wind storm could come through. Make sure to pack appropriately by including a comfy sweater and some pants just in case.

The mason who built the stone fireplace for them did so by hand, using stones he spent over a year searching for and finding one by one within 20 miles of the Guest Lodge; none were hewn, but used just as they were found. The Lodge was since renovated in 2013 and 2014, adding many improvements while carefully maintaining the cabin's original simplicity and charm. There are families who have been coming to the Guest Lodge since the 70's, with children who now return as adults with their families. The 81-acre lake, known by locals as 'Staples Pond,' was immediately dubbed Santa Claus Lake by Rob's father upon seeing an aerial view - it looks just like Santa with his pack on. Whether your great love is hiking, biking, swimming, canoeing, antiquing, fishing, riding an antique steam train, renting a jet ski, or photographing the beautiful mountains, lakes and wildlife, the Franklin County area holds many interesting and fun things to see and do. Although many guests simply prefer to rest and enjoy the mesmerizing peace and quiet, wildlife and fishing or hiking right on this beautiful forest property, and only leave to go to Giffords' for some ice cream. Guest Access You will have the whole cabin and property to yourself, private access to the lake with swimming dock, and use of the canoe, row boat and enclosed outdoor shower. Interaction with Guests We are only a phone call away if you have any questions or concerns. We also provide you with lots of information about the cabin and the surrounding area before you go, to help you plan your trip...and there is a big looseleaf notebook in the cabin, filled with brochures and info on area attractions. The Neighborhood The Lodge is at the end of a dirt road surrounded by woods on an 81-acre lake about 20 minutes drive from the nearest town (which is Farmington, a fun little college town). There are about 9 camps around the lake, but none within sight of the Lodge except for the cabin across the lake. The tap water in the cabin flows from the well and tastes like Poland Spring (which is not that far away). Getting Around You need a car to access the Guest Lodge and to get places. But you can also enjoy beautiful hikes through the woods right from the property. Nearest train is in Portland (2 hours drive) and nearest airport is Augusta (1 hour), then Portland (1 hour, 50 minutes) and then Bangor (2 hours), Manchester, NH (3 hours, 15 minutes), Boston Logan Airport (3 hours, 30 min.). Other Things to Note There's a charcoal grill on the back porch. There is no cable service in Temple, Maine, but we have a DVD player and VCR and two shelves full of movies to watch, as well as bookshelves filled with books, and some games and puzzles. The great room has a big, strong ceiling fan which is wonderful when the temperature rises, and keeps the heat circulating when the weather is cold as well. There is also an air-conditioner and an attic fan that helps keep the temperature down on those rare hot days in Maine, as well as two ceiling fans out on the back porch. We are a seasonal property - open from Memorial Day through Thanksgiving and closed during the winter months. During the summer we rent only by the week (Saturday to Saturday), and in the fall we have a 3-night minimum.

The SpaceCome stay in the beautiful mountains of western Maine with our family! Our house is spacious, relaxed and welcoming. Your bedroom and bonus hang out room are located upstairs, where you can enjoy privacy away from the other shared living spaces. We have a big, beautiful backyard with loads of vegetables and fruit in the summertime. We also have a fire pit available for responsible fires, a grill, lots of yard games and even a climbing wall in the shed! Just past our yard lies the Whistle Stop Rail Trail- a 15 mile long path that winds through the woods of Franklin County. Much of the trail runs alongside the Sandy River where you will find quiet swimming holes, smooth-stone beaches, and lush shoreline to explore. Try floating the river like the locals with your end destination being our backyard! Just across the river, whether you roll up your pants and walk, or hop in your car and drive over the bridge, is the town of Farmington. Small but sweet, with live music most nights, a solid handful of restaurants to choose from, great shopping and a lively arts scene thanks to the university. Beyond Farmington the options are limitless! Go on a moose safari in Jackman, challenge yourself with Fat Man's squeeze on Tumbledown Mountain, go ice fishing on Clearwater Lake, or test your paddling skills with whitewater rafting! SO many amazing adventures lie within an hour of Farmington. Guest AccessNot only do you have a cozy, sweet bedroom upstairs to enjoy, but we also offer a private "bonus" room with a futon. Chill out watching Netflix for an evening, find a sunny patch to read a book in or pour a glass of wine and look at pictures from the day's adventure. In addition to the two private rooms, you also have access to the downstairs living space- a living room, bathroom, kitchen, dining room and sun porch. All decorated with love and kept as tidy as possible for your enjoyment. Interaction with GuestsWe both have sporadic work schedules and are flexible to be here if needed. That said- we do have to go to work occasionally and want you to feel comfortable being here alone. We're always down to play music, cook together, have a fire or go for a walk, but will also live our normal lives and do what we need to do. The NeighborhoodWe live on a very quiet, dead end street. Our neighbors are loved and respected and we expect you to treat them the same. We live a 5 minute drive (or a 10 minute walk!) away from downtown, yet can hear the crickets in the evening. The best of both worlds. Getting AroundWe will soon have two bikes you can borrow. Public transportation is pretty much non-existent in the area, so a car is highly recommended. Town is very accessible on foot, especially in the summer when the river is low. Other Things to NoteDue to the fact that we have a baby, our house is very much lived in. We always strive to be as tidy as possible, but life happens and not every single thing is put in its place 100% of the time. We are flexible if you are flexible. With all that said, we highly encourage other families to come stay with us! We are very kid friendly and would love to have other littles around.
