About Jeff and Angelica Bazyk
When Jeff and I were in our early 20's, we started going up to coastal Maine every year in the summer. Raised in NY and southern CT, we fell in love with the quaint New England villages, the pine air, cool night summer breezes, the people, and the laid-back lifestyle. In 2001, we lived in a condo in downtown Boston and wanted to find a weekend retreat that offered lots of outdoor activities throughout the year. We had heard about the Lakes Region in Maine and decided to explore that area of Maine. The first time we saw this Log Home, set in the woods, on a beautiful lake, we knew it had everything we had hoped to find. With nearby skiing at Sunday River and Mt. Abram's and the interstate trail system of cross country and snowmobile trails - it would provide us with plenty to do during the winter. In the summer, we could canoe, kayak, swim, hike... or just relax by the lake. And, the nearby quaint New England towns of Bridgton and Bethel reminded us of why we were drawn to Maine so many years ago.
Jeff and Angelica Bazyk purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2001
Why Jeff and Angelica Bazyk chose Waterford
The house sit on a lake and faces the sunset. Each evening, you can sit on the deck, watching the loons on the lake, as the sun dips below the White Mountains in the distance.

The cabin suited our family of 7 very well. Swimming, boating, hiking and campfire were enjoyed. The pond is clean. It's a lovely location, not too remote. I enjoyed the quiet: no motorboats.
Thank you for the review and so glad you all enjoyed yourselves. Please come back anytime. Enjoy the rest of the summer!
Pleasant accommodations; excellent swimming
We had a very good stay at this rustic cabin with two families, including three children and an infant. Well equipped for the baby, including high chair and pack 'n' play. The sandy entrance to the lake for swimming was absolutely perfect and a major highlight for us. The kids built sand castles and made use of the float toys in the basement. Angela checked in with us by phone a few times to check with us before the caretaker stopped in to install a new shower curtain, which we appreciated.
Great, secluded cabin
We were a little disappointed with the lack of a beach area but it didn't stop us from having a great time. It's in a nice area, easy to find and away from others. The pond is great and not many people around. Overall a great spot to get away...but yet still close to trails and stores if need be
Awesome surprise find
The listing doesn't do this property justice. We have been searching for the perfect Maine waterfront destination for a few years and finally found it. The house itself is super comfy and has everything you need. We took advantage of the kayaks and kayaked the pond with our kids and the crooked river which was a hidden gem in itself. We caught good sized fish, checked out a wicked cool bison ranch, and hit Story Land. Fantastic trip for young kids ours are 4 and 8!
So glad you enjoyed your stay. We'd love to have you come back in the future. And thank you for the great review.
I will say the grill wasn’t working correctly. BUT everything else was more than we could ask for. It was clean and beautiful and perfect couldn’t ask for a better place and we know we’ll be going back. Only slightly “bad” thing was the grill didn’t seem to want to work correctly but grill or no grill it’s pretty perfect!
Thank you so much for the great review and I'm so glad you had a fun vacation. We bought the grill last year, so will check on it. SORRY! Also, our caretaker lives nearby, so if you call he's great about coming over to help/fix any problems. Thanks again and I hope you all come back..
Wonderful experience from building snowman on the pond to warming up by the fire.
Great private location. Rustic look cabin with the critical essentials.
Thank you for the good review. So glad you had fun and enjoyed your stay. Please come back anytime!
