Franklin Pierce Lake
Lovely stay last week in this beautiful home. The owners Keith and Louise met us to show us around. Of all the rentals we’ve had through the years this one was the most well appointed. The house was bright, sparkling clean and had every thing we needed. The only surprise was the motorboat traffic on the weekend but during the week it was so quiet all we heard were the loons on the lake. Great grocery store in town and we enjoyed both the Sampan Asian restaurant and the local pub. Great stay!
The perfect place to get away & decompress. Our group ranged in age from 6-84. We ALL ❤️ Lake Life!
The view of the lake from three sliding glass doors became our large screen TV for the week. ( There is a TV and it works great) We watched motorboats, sailboats, kayaks, fishermen, sunsets, birds, and loons. This house provided enough space for people to go off on their own and be together. Everything we needed was provided and easy to find
( coffee maker, tea kettle, microwave, toaster, grill, grill utensils, dish soap, sponge, bath towels, sheets, board games). Our favorite amenities were binoculars with a book about loons, kayaks, a screened in porch that allows you to look up at the stars, and a lower deck by the water with built in umbrellas. The children who visited us loved going up and down the spiral staircase, looking at stars through skylights, having a birds eye view from the loft, playing ping pong, using the fooseball table, learning about loons, boating, and accessing the water from both stairs and a ladder off the dock. They brought electronic devices but forgot to use them!
We accidentally found out Tooky’s Mills Pub not only has good food, but also live music on Sunday nights. Kat’s Corner breakfast counter to live like a local. High Tide for seafood and ice cream.
Pack your beach towel, sunscreen, bug spray and head to Franklin Pierce Lake.
Lake is beautiful and perfect for family gathering. Owners were very friendly and gave a personal walk through of the property.
My family and I had a great stay at the lake house - loads of fun for everyone. We loved the kayaks and used them every day. Everything was easy and convenient.
Amazing time and place
Perfect house and lake for a peaceful getaway
Outstanding in every possible way!
Wonderful! This house was absolute perfection. So many places to gather and enjoy the amazing views! You can see the beautiful lake from the kitchen, dining room, porches, game room, sitting area, everywhere! We hosted a couple of families while we were there, and it was perfect for entertaining. The kids all loved the loft bedroom and the game room - you'll never hear the teenagers whine "I'm bored" while in this house!
The house was very well equipped - we didn't want for anything. There were puzzles, board games, oodles of pool noodles, every kitchen appliance we could ask for, and even linens and bath towels were provided. We put the kayaks and the canoe to good use and those were a huge bonus. My husband and I took turns swimming across the lake and back while the other kayaked and that was a fun challenge (about a 1/2 mile each way). We also canoed the whole perimeter of the lake and that took about 2.5 hours and I would definitely recommend going for that, too. The lake was warm, clean, and not busy during the weekdays. Sunsets were beautiful from the house and/or the docks (sunrises were gorgeous too, but you have to take a boat out to see).
We saw some great wildlife, including two bald eagles! We also saw loons, herons, and a porcupine. While the neighboring houses are close, it's hard to notice that because there are many trees and lots of vegetation between the properties. It felt very private, and it was generally very quiet (just one loud party nearby one of the nights - otherwise, just crickets!). Speaking of bugs - there were none?? Strange, I know. I've never spent time near water without mosquitoes feasting!
Honestly, this place was so great I almost don't want to write a review so I can keep it all to myself :-). But the owners here deserve this great review. The house was pristine, communication easy and prompt, and check in easy breezy. This was a big step up from our usual rental (haha in both price and in luxury!), and we're so glad that we splurged. Thank you so much Keith and Louise!!
PS, a few tips: We recommend the German bakery & the Mediterrano restaurant (both delicious and nearby in Hillsboro). We have AT&T and we had zero cell service (yay!), so bring a calling card. It would probably be worth printing up a map in advance in case your GPS loses its signal (ours did not, but some guests' did). Start the shower at the 6 o'clock position (I think the graphic is backwards).
