The space

There were cookies waiting at check in that were great. The house has everything and the property is great. The lake is nice but not good for fishing.

Time on the lake was relaxing and fun. The beach and dock made swimming, canoeing and kayaking easy. The home was comfortable for our whole family.

The Good: Christine was very easy to communicate with and answered all of my questions promptly. Easy check in/ out. Thompson Lake is amazing!! The weather was perfect. The space was large enough for our family of 5. The washing machine and dryer are very nice! The kitchen has all the cookware , dishes and utensils you might need. There are basic spices etc. to help with cooking. The canoe is very nice as well as the kayak with lifejackets provided. The not so good: We were not impressed with the outside space. The lawn is much smaller than pictures show and the water view is limited. The fire pit is not by the water but rather in the bushes and only allows for sitting on one side rather than 'around' the fire. Also, it made a very buggy location. There were also several broken Adirondack chairs thrown into the bushes ( in view) near the firepit. The dock was probably the most problematic. It is wooden and in need of repair. My son described it as wavy like a piece of bacon. There are several sections and between the sections there is a 1-2 inch height difference causing a lot of trips and stubbed toes! Ouch!! Definitely not good for kids or older guests. The house was somewhat clean but if you are looking for spotless, this is more campy with dust bunnies under furniture, a few spider webs (my son even found 2 spiders in his bed on the 3rd night), and the instruction book on the table explains which cabinets to use to keep food from the mice! So... definitely more of a camp than a house. Sadly, 3 of the 5 family members ended up with injuries from the dock, none serious enough for medical help but certainly painful. Overall: If you are looking to find a place on Thompson Lake (beautiful) and are on a budget, this place is not bad for the price. If your standards are higher, you might want to keep looking.

Response from Christine:
Becky, I’m glad that your first airbnb rental was successful and that you had a great week. We strive to offer accurate descriptions and photos and as clean a house as any airbnb rental that we have stayed at. But your comments help us make a more comfortable stay for our guests. Thank you. New dock: Spring 2018!

I would highly recommend booking with Christine! She is very easy to communicate with, answered all our questions and was so generously flexible with our arrangements. The house is simply wonderful. It was clean and comfortable with a home away from home feel. There was plenty of room, both inside and out, for the 6 of us and easily accommodated a couple extra visitors we had for lunch and lake fun. The kitchen was perfect, clean and well stocked with lots of room to move. The beds are very comfortable and we loved that Christine provided all the linens and towels we needed. There is plenty of room inside and out for a large group / family to dine, game or just spend time together. There are books and games throughout the house. The lake is beautiful! The water is crystal clear. We swam, kayaked, canoed and there were plenty of oars and life-jackets. Everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed Christine's place on the lake and we all want to go back! It is so quiet and peaceful there. Oh! The sound of the (URL HIDDEN) was just so beautiful. Great place for bird watching too! I could go on and on about this place, we had everything we needed and then some. Thank you for everything Christine, we had a wonderful experience and look forward to returning!

Christine gets high marks from us for her lakefront cottage. She was easy to communicate with and amenities like a canoe, kayaks, three fishing rods and lifejackets were helpful. The kitchen was clean and well stocked. We spent most of the weekend in Lewiston for a graduation. The drive is about 30 to 35 minutes.

We had a great time at the lake house. Very clean, well equipped, and a fantastic location. It was very quiet and we had the lake to ourselves. While the weather didn't always cooperate we still managed to find things to do each day. Chris was very responsive and helpful throughout the process. We highly recommend her place!
