SPACIOUS LAKEFRONT LODGE-HOT TUB & REC ROOM-NEAR ACADIA NATIONAL PARK

Beech Hill Pond Lodge Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 14 people

Happy Days Lodge-Wake to the call of the loons and drink your coffee on the deck just steps from the shore. Spend your days on Beech Hill Pond swimming, fishing, boating, enjoying the hot tub,or simply reading in the hammock. A large flat area at the waters edge is perfect for relaxing in the sun or playing beach games. Or, plan to take a drive to world famous Acadia Nat'l Park /Bar Harbor. Go hiking, biking, sightseeing, whale watching, shopping and much more. Discover all that this unique area has to offer. Located in the heart of Downeast Maine, the lodge is located a half hour from Bangor Internat'l Airport.

Sunny, Bright and Immaculate! This lodge boasts a huge custom kitchen with breakfast bar and lots of seating in the open living/dining area. Downstairs offers large rec room with pool table, fooze ball, pinball, darts, plus 2 more bedrooms, 2 more bathrooms and washer and dryer. Skylights, glass doors and lots of lake facing windows drench the lodge with natural light.

The main floor has over-sized kitchen, large open living/dining room, master bedroom with queen-sized bed and master bath with shower. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms each have full size beds, and each have a separate sliding glass door onto a covered deck that overlooks the lake.

The downstairs rec room has wall to wall windows and two sliding glass doors facing the lake, a pool table, retro pinball machines, foozeball, darts, satellite TV, a 2nd full size refrigerator just inside door to waterfront, 2 bathrooms, and washer and dryer. 4th bedroom has double bed bunk beds and 5th bedroom has double bed with twin bunk above. These bedrooms also each have a sliding glass door that opens to a cement patio and the lake just 50 ft away!

Enjoy the Four Seasons of Maine, at its BEST!: SPRING and SUMMER:

Wake to the call of the loons and drink your coffee on the deck just steps from the shores of Beech Hill Pond. Although it's name says 'Pond', Beech Hill is actually a beautiful, crystal clear 4 1/2 mile long, 1 mile wide spring-fed lake.

Enjoy the private dock and spend your days swimming, fishing, boating (canoe/kayak rentals can be delivered right to the cabin), or simply reading in the hammock. Gaze across the lake to the surrounding hills for breathtaking views.

The open deck and covered porch with hot tub provide guests options for sunbathing, star-gazing or enjoying a shady spot to enjoy the view.

There is a large, flat, sand area at the water's edge, great for relaxing in the sun or playing beach games. Picnic tables and chairs provide plenty of lakeside seating.

The fire pit at the water's edge is perfect for end of the day enjoyment...and firewood is provided!

FALL:

Maine's warm fall days and cool, crisp nights are perfect for fishing, hunting, biking, hiking, sightseeing, and reveling in spectacular fall foliage. We are less than 30 miles from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, recognized as one of the best places in the country to view spectacular fall foliage!

WINTER:

Ice fishing, skating, snowmobiling, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, kite-flying on the lake...are just a few of the activities to enjoy at 'Happy Days' Lodge!

Great for holidays, reunions, special celebrations...

Why not spend Labor Day, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's at the perfect Maine get-away...

A nice place to have a big family reunion

Four families converged on this nice lakeside lodge from CA, OH, and VA. We all enjoyed swimming, fishing and boating on the lake, roasting marshmallows at the fire pit (with plenty of firewood) and hot tub; even on rainy days we could enjoy the pool table, foosball and pinball machine. It took us almost an hour of drive to Acadia National Park when the highways were congested with summer tourists, but it would be difficult to find such a large house in the Bar Harbor area at this price. Highly recommended for a large family/friends get-together.

My family and I came with friends of ours. We were so excited because this was our first vacation together. The Happy Days Lodge had everything we could ever need. It was nice and clean too which is hard to find at hotels. We have decided that we would like to make Happy Days Lodge our annual tradition for both our families. This is an excellent lodge and Becky is great to deal with and talk to!!

Best Family Vacation Ever!

Our family of 11 gathers every two years for a week's vacation. This was unanimously voted as the best ever. The lake, the house and the general surroundings were all spectacular. The house, however, was the high spot. It had everything that one could ask for and more. The owners have done a great job making a stay enjoyable. The rec. room for the kids was wonderful for them, and the adults. The property was beautiful and we spent a lot of time on the 'Pond.' The folks from Beach Hill Canoe and Kayak rentals were great and very accommodating. Their boats and help were keys to our successful week.
Thank you for all the thought you have put into this home for your renters. It does not get better than this!

Taken from "How Was Your Vacation @ Happy Days Lodge" Guest Feedback Sheet: It was everything we'd hoped it would be. The lake couldn't be cleaner or prettier! The house has everything we needed. It was particularly nice to have wi-fi internet access for those of us who can't completely stop working.

A WONDERFUL TIME WAS HAD BY ALL!!!!

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful place on Beech Hill Pond with us! We had family from one end of the country to the other visiting with children and grandchildren..and all enjoyed the water, kayaking, and cooking smores on the campfire as well as just spending time together in such a pristine spot. The place had everything that we needed. Loved it!!!
Owner's Response: We LOVE hearing about families that enjoy our lodge as much as we do! Since we gather at Happy Days with 4 generations of our own family as often as we can, we know how special it is to find the "perfect" spot. We couldn't find one that had everything we wanted, so we created our own for our family and to share with others. For us, Happy Days is the perfect spot because it allows us to have one place that we can all be together, with room to spread out, both inside and out. We find that there's always something to do for all ages in our family whether the weather cooperates or not! We, too, enjoy campfires and star gazing at night, spotting loons and eagles, fishing, swimming, cannonballs off the dock, kayaking, strolls to the beach at the head of the lake or down the 7 mile road that follows the entire west shore, and sun bathing if the weather's good. If not, we play board games, cards, read, soak in the hot tub, have pinball and pool tournaments, cook and enjoy meals together, watch movies or our favorite sports and TV shows on the internet or satellite TV, and reminisce while making new memories...perfect!

Car: necessary

This lakeside lodge is 'away from it all', but is only 15 minutes from shopping in Ellsworth and less than 30 miles from Acadia National Park and beautiful Bar Harbor. In the fall, enjoy Maine's spectacular foliage.
