We try to get together with family once a year and a lake vacation is our go-to destination. Mama Bear house was perfect!!! It has so many amenities that you cannot count. The lake is beautiful for swimming, boating, fishing and just hanging out. In bad weather the house is stocked with games, tv's and space!! Great for just being together. There is a boat, paddle board or canoe for everyone. More than you could ever need. The home also has a very well stocked kitchen. Just Bring food... It is a very quiet lake, which was perfect for our family of 12 to just enjoy the time away. Great Home!!!

Comfortable house, on a wonderful body of water. The kids love the bunk beds! Owners are communicative and helpful. Plenty of things provided to amuse us on rainy days, and when the weather is good we can swim and kayak. Ashuelot has lots of nooks and crannies to explore, the wildlife is abundant, the fishing is excellent. There is a really sassy chipmunk living in the lawn, who stole apples and chips right at our feet. Love it.

This house is perfect for a large family vacation. Everything about it fit our needs. Comfortable and beautiful to boot! We are all about being together, hanging out and playing games. The openness of the main area floor plan gave us that. The kitchen was equipped with everything you would ever need. Everyone was so happy with the bedrooms. Our favorite part of staying here was the time we spent hanging out on the dock and floating around in the water. The paddle boards and kayaks were a pleasant bonus. I would recommend this house to anyone And we are looking forward to coming back next year! Thank you Michelle and James!

This is an awesome property for family gatherings!...
This is an awesome property for family gatherings! We enjoyed lots of space to relax and roam around without being on top of one another. It was like walking into an Inn! The beds were quite comfortable for sleeping and the 3 bathrooms were a plus! The game room was a huge hit for all ages from 5-adult. Fishing was great and we loved having the 2 boat docks for continuous fishing and anchoring our boats! Life around the pond was so very quiet, bass fishing was great and the dirt road was great for the 6 mile workouts. The fire pit was the place to be for roasting marshmallows and enjoying each other’s company. Yummy ice cream was right around the corner! This place was so cozy! So much laughter and good times had by all! This was our first family vacation with 3 generations and we want to come back next year! We couldn’t have found a better place! Thank you Michelle and James for sharing your special place in paradise!

We loved our stay at Mama Bear lodge! It was perfect for our group 8 adults, 4 teens) and we had a great time hiking, skiing, building fires, cooking, watching movies and enjoying time together. The house was clean and had everything you need, both in the kitchen as the bathrooms as the playroom and gym! We loved the festive decorations and Michelle (homeowner) was very responsive. Even doing the dishes together (there’s no dishwasher in the house) was a fun activity for some. If you are a tall crowd (like us) note that the beds are fairly small. Fortunately we all liked snuggling up. Alltogether, we’ve had a great time and would recommend this rental at the lake!

My friends and I from high school are now in our mid-40s with kids and husbands but try to get away twice a year once in the winter and once in the summer this was the first time we stayed here and it was absolutely amazing!!! Michelle was so accommodating! Communication was open 100% of the time if we needed anything which we really didn’t everything that you could think of was already thought of by her. The spaces were clean, cozy and comfortable. There’s so much room for a group of people who wanted to do different things to move around the house... and still have plenty of privacy. All in all our stay was absolutely amazing and we intend on going back every year!!!

Lot's of bear motifs and a very outdoorsy feel on the inside. Still, very cozy and accommodating. The game room was a big hit for the teenagers. They spent most of their free time there. The couches in the living room were wondrously comfortable and a great place to snuggle down in front of the fire. Overall, the property is very well kept, a noticeable attention to detail and has much to offer. We are considering it for a larger family gathering over the summer.

Fantastic Family Vacation !
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mama Bear lodge. The view from the house and backyard were beautiful. We were more than pleased with the amount of kayaks, water floats, life jackets, paddle boat and the canoe available for our use. We also enjoyed using the outdoor fireplace to cook on, and eating dinner in the netted gazebo. The yard was spacious for our kids to run around on, and they enjoyed the provided kiddie pool. The house itself was spacious. The furniture was really comfortable and we loved the rustic feel. The house was stocked with games, a pack and play and high chairs for little ones.
