About Victoria Auger

We are a family living in Tampa, Florida. We have four grown children. We love our summers on the lake!! After filling the house for many summers with family and friends and lots of kids, we are now wanting to travel more and rent out our beautiful custom home. Mike is from Winslow, Maine (a neighboring town) and always dreamed of having a vacation home on Great Pond after spending many summers on the lake growing up. We hope you will stay with us and create your own memories on the Lake.

Victoria Auger purchased this house in 2007

Why Victoria Auger chose Belgrade

Belgrade is the best place to be especially during the summer. The town of Belgrade is quaint and festive offering great restaurants and shopping. There are endless activities on the lake. This property is perfect for a family or two families to share a great summer vacation! Additionally, this venue is fabulous to host weddings, rehearsal dinners, yoga retreats, etc. This home will effortlessly accommodate your personal event! Contact us for event rates and catering needs. We can make your event memorable and meet your individual expectations.

What makes this house unique

We built this custom home and completed construction in 2007. Victoria is an interior designer who spent countless hours designing every detail of this amazing family home. The chef's kitchen has every amenity a great cook would love! Marble countertops, stainless steel appliances and a built-in Miele coffee maker creates the ultimate cooking and dining experience!

Also, the bunkhouse is unique with 6 built-in bunk beds, a full kitchen, an extra bedroom and 2 baths. The ultimate kid escape!

Stunning lakefront views throughout are the platform for creating lifetime memories!

Fantastic vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious vacation house was all that we could have asked for and more!

Gourmet kitchen is a great place for the entire group to hang out and one of the many focal points of this beautiful home.

Ping pong table in the lower level was also a popular hang-out.

Great lake views from all levels of the house.

Easy access to the lake, great kayaking and sunning from the dock.

Would definitely love to return to this beautiful location and fantastic house!

Perfect Vacation on the Lake in a Stunning Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect back drop for our family vacation over the Summer.

We flew into Portland, and spent the day on Main Street enjoying the local shopping, boutique stores and delicious food. Highly recommend stopping in at The Holy Donut - best donuts ever! Portland was an convenient airport to fly into and a easy drive to the home.

The house is gorgeous. Beautiful traditional architecture, with a stunning kitchen, beautiful views, oversized fireplaces, and a huge family style dining table over looking the Lake.

The Porch was our favorite place to spend time reading and drinking a morning coffee (plenty of coffee machine options in the kitchen for the coffee connoisseur). Watching the sun come up over the Lake, was the perfect peaceful start to our morning. The kitchen is a chef’s dream. Professional grade appliances, everything perfectly appointed. Gorgeous lighting and huge island for family and friends to gather around.

Each room is lovely, with large windows and comfortable beds. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were, in each and every room. The bathrooms are large and well designed, with beautiful design details and elegant finishes.

The bunk room was a super fun place for all of the kids to sleep. Quaint and comfortable, it was the perfect accomodation for our younger kids.

The basement was a huge hit with our teens, who played hours of table tennis and stayed up all night watching TV. OK - it was a hit with the adults too!

The property owners were so helpful; with recommendations on where to shop, what to eat, where to rent a boat. We spent every day on the Lake, fishing and boating, paddling and playing. The kids loved jumping from the dock and exploring the waters edge. The surrounding landscape is beautiful.

The house is clearly well cared for and loved, and we would not hesitate to book this home again. It would make an incredible venue for family reunions (like ours) or wedding events alike.

We took a day trip to the Acadia National Park - for more nature, hiking, beaches and beauty, and stopped in Bar Harbor - for more lobster and shopping. The National Park offers short and long hikes with incredible views and stunning scenery. Highly recommend making the trip!

The owner and manager provide excellent customer service. They answered our questions before the trip when we were planning our adventures and were available during our stay to help us find whatever we needed.

Absolutely Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

It's a beautiful, well-appointed home with an amazing kitchen! The setting for this property is idyllic, sitting up on a hill overlooking the lake, so peaceful and tranquil. When we arrived, the home was spotless and obviously maintained perfectly. We enjoyed our time there and as well as exploring the surrounding areas and the town. We plan to make this a destination vacation home often!

Colby Graduation Celebration Week

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental was just spectacular. We were a party of 15 and there was more then ample room for all to sleep. The rooms are just as they look in the photos on this site. The bathrooms are huge and graciously done. The kitchen held us all to eat our family meals. The lower level was great for all. Ping Pong, a bar, a gym. Nothing to be missed here. The views were spectacular in every room, you looked at "Snowy Pond". You awoke to nothing but solace and closed the night off with incredible sunsets. There was ample supplies of towels, sheets, and blankets. The home owners were just wonderful from the day 1 of booking it until we left and the caretaker is just amazing they even arranged the personal chef for us who was "perfect" . The best way to celebrate a Colby Graduation or any other special something with a large group. We will be back for the next one.

The way life should be

  • 4 of 5

This summer cottage is the way life should be, gracious living in an idyllic setting. The house is beautifully designed and decorated with high end finishes. It has a definite "wow" factor

The lake is so handy and visible from many windows making it easy to keep track of those on the dock or in the water. The bedrooms are amble sized each with a great bathroom.

The kitchen was the gathering place for everyone, with multiple cooks prepping meals, others chatting at the dining table or wandering in and out of the screened porch. It was surely the highpoint of the house.

The many big screen TVs were be a hit with the Olympics on. The downstairs became the Man Cave and a great place to see the Olympics at night while the kids played ping pong.

The house was spotlessly clean. And the comment from everyone was about the great bedding and comfy beds. The towels were big and fluffy, and in abundant supply. The kitchen and pantry were a great resource for a few items needed to create spur of the moment dishes. In addition there was not one tool we were lacking even for the professional chef we had for a couple days.

The kayaks were great for early morning forays in the quiet air with just the loons for company. We rented a pontoon boat and paddle boards from the nearby marina and they were terrific to work with. We loved our boat rides to the island with the rope swing for jumping into the water, swimming, and paddle boarding. The boat trip to town for lunch and leisurely meander home was so much fun.

We had a few items on our wish list: grab bars in the showers would be very helpful and a few maintenance items including doors opening and closing. I would have given it five stars if there hadn't been the several maintenance items.

Vicky was very responsive and immediately available by text.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly highly recommend this house - it is nothing short of wonderful. The house is beautifully decorated and is right out of a coastal homes magazine. Kitchen has the highest quality appliances and makes cooking for a group very easy. We spent a week celebrating grandparent birthdays - and the house easily accommodated all of our families. The bunkhouse is an extra treat - lots of fun for the kids to stay in. Lake is gorgeous - house is on a quiet cove and the dock fits lots of sunbathers. What a special vacation - highly highly recommend.
