Mushroom Lodge is a very pleasant spot to spend a summer vacation. The location on Long Pond is perfect for swimming, kayaking, and taking in the sunshine. The pond water is crisp and clean, warm enough to stay in for a while. The property is wooded and has lots of tall pines, trees, and shrubs.. A deer stopped by the front yard almost every day, and there were ducks and birds on the pond. There is a alot of outdoor space to enjoy, and the porch overlooking the pond is good for outdoor dining and lounging. The house itself is small but mostly comfortable; the living room has TV and a big bay window; the kitchen is tight but manageable; the bedrooms were pleasant spaces but the mattresses can use an upgrade, It is a scenic 15 to 20 minute drive across the island to Bar Harbor. Or to Thurston's Lobster Pound. The pictures above are accurate, but don't capture the beauty of a Maine summer day. Overall Mushroom Lodge will not disappoint if you love the outdoors. Perfect place for kids and animals too.
