Bonding

  • Don Paiva

    Narragansett Bay Wheelmen

    “It's perfect for our group, which is usally around 30 people. We've got couples, and singles, and they've got the setup to accommodate everyone with plenty of rooms in all configurations. Everybody takes turns cooking, and they've got the stoves, refrigerators and dishwashers to handle us. They even provide bed linens. I tell everybody it's just a tremendous experience. And the roads are ideal for daily rides. Such scenery can't be matched anywhere.”

    Rosemary Munson

    Maine Medical Center,

    Department of Pediatrics

    “We've been taking our Residents up for over 6 years. It's a regular event and they really look forward to it. Their professional lives are so hectic and busy and this is their one chance to bond as a group and really let it out. It's a piece of heaven. The peacefulness, the mountains, the crystal clear lake, it's so nicely isolated but so close. Our Residents from out of state are amazed at the serenity.”

    Randy Langmaid

    Friends and Family Annual Gathering

    “It's the one place where our group, which ranges from 25 to 45 people, can experience sitting down in one room for dinner. My kids love it. My friends love it. And I love it because you can't create that festive atmosphere anywhere else. It's truly unique. And with the lake, the steam room, indoor fireplaces, and outdoor fire pit, there's something for everyone.”

    Richard Rokos

    University of Colorado Ski Team

    “Practically speaking, our group loves it because of the kitchens since our Nordic team requires a special diet. And the management team was very helpful, too. But, personally I like it because the countryside reminds me a lot of my homeland. I'm from Czechoslovakia, and so are many of my students, and it reminds us of home.”

    Friends Getaway

    Weymouth, Massachusetts

    “The House was amazing. All my friends were very impressed with the neatness, space and the many accommodations. Everything on the House was useful and over and above our expectations.”

    Tom Zumwalt

    Appalacian Mountain Club,

    Worcester Chapter

    “It's a beautiful setting for hiking, biking and kayaking. We have anywhere from 25 to 35 in our group and sometimes take three of the Houses. The yard and fire pit are great and the individual Houses are just the right size for congregating. My personal favorite is the reclining sofa in front of the fireplace.”

    Family Group

    Testimonial

    “Mary Jo's family has been holding a reunion every three years for the past 30 years in various locations across the country. Their 2005 reunion was held at The Maine House. The group was so overwhelmingly pleased; they have booked again for their 2011 reunion.”

    Connie Schmotzer

    Fletcher Rug Hooker Group

    About 20 of us have been gathering here for quite a few years. We love the huge porch with all the light coming in. We can spread our materials out and have just the best time. Lakeside in Maine in the Fall...it just doesn't get any better.

    Family Group

    Gray, Maine

    “Fabulous spot for a large group get together. We needed a retreat to recharge. It was a relief to be in such a relaxing, natural environment.”

    Doctor and Family

    Hershey, PA

    “We're still basking in the pleasant memories of our family vacation at The Maine House.”

    Gene and Pat

    Charlestown, MA

    “We have just spent five very special days at your beautiful MountainView home celebrating our 59th anniversary with our four children, thirteen grandchildren, four great grandchildren, and all the spouses, gathering from all over the country. It was incredible! The comfortable accommodations, the lake and beautiful woodland surroundings were simply perfect. We just wanted to let you know how very happy our entire family was with the accommodations and how much we feel it added to the entire experience. Hopefully in another year or so we will organize another family reunion, and we'll certainly contact you again.”

    Family Reunion

    Wolcott, Connecticut

    “I cannot begin to tell you in words what a great time we all had. The Houses were beautiful and the size of each House accommodated everyone perfectly.”

    Family Group

    East Patehogue, New York

    “The location was fantastic! The House itself was exactly what we were hoping for-clean, roomy and a fully stocked kitchen. We had the best time.”

    Family Group

    Merrimack, New Hampshire

    “The layout of the Mountain View House was perfect for our group. The bedroom variety also gave everyone something they wanted.”

    University Group

    Boston, Massachusetts

    “Our weekend was a huge success. We had a great time and everyone loved the House. It was clean, comfortable and very homey.”

    Family Group 

    Dover, New Jersey

    “What a great place for a family gathering. There was a lot of room for all of us.”

    AMC Group

    Testimonial

    “Various chapters of the Appalachian Mountain Club have enjoyed many outings to The Maine Houses. Chuck and Mary, group leaders of the Worcester Chapter of the AMC, brought their bike group to The Maine House when the house first opened. About 10 years ago, the couple were married at The Maine House and, since then, have brought their bike group back to enjoy the fall foliage every Columbus Day weekend.”

    Anniversary Celebration

    Merrimack, New Hampshire

    “We celebrated my parents 50th wedding anniversary at The Maine House and had a wonderful time. It did rain most of our stay, but it probably worked out for the best because it kept us all in the House together and we had a great time. It was so fun to sit down and have dinner together, too. Thank you.”
