French doors in the rear suite open onto the deck. The fully equipped kitchen features stainless appliances, granite tile surfaces and all the gadgets -- blender, microwave, toaster, mixer and coffee maker. If you wish to leave the cooking to a chef, Gorham's Bluff Lodge is a 5 minute walk away, and serves wonderful gourmet meals in it's lovely dining room. (Advance reservations required.)
Considering an afternoon stroll? Wander down the tree and flower lined streets and along the bluff. Venture down down to a small waterfall and enjoy the sound of splashing water hitting the rocks.
Take in the phenomenal view behind the Lodge, or bring your fishing tackle and wet a hook in the one of the small lakes, or enjoy a dip in the neighborhood pool.
