A CLASSIC LAKEFRONT VACATION IN MAINE!

Fayette Lodge Rental Photos and Description

8 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, sleeps 16, commercial kitchen, wheelchair accessible

The original lodge was built in 1937 and began operation that same year. Sadly, this beautiful, old building burned down just after Labor Day of 2013. As of now, the owners are rebuilding and expect to be open for business starting with Memorial Day weekend in 2014. Happily, we are able to retain the original fieldstone fireplace in the living room. Follow us on Facebook to see photos and progress.

In the meantime, a description. The new building will look almost the same on the outside, occupying the original footprint and using the same style. The photos you see on this page is what the new place will look like, except for some improvements. We will be adding an ADA-compliant ramp to our deck for wheelchair access, as well as additional entrances from the deck. The front porch will still be reached by stairs, though they will be wider and easier to climb.

Inside, the first floor will all be on one level with no steps between parts of the building. We are adding an 8th bedroom and renovating another space (previously storage) into a game room. Interior styling will replicate the original building with wood paneling throughout the 1st floor and most windows oriented for lake views. The bedrooms will contain a mix of four queen beds and eight twin beds.

The kitchen will have commercial appliances as before, and will be somewhat larger! The dining room will still seat 40 people.

Our long-time guests who come every year are excited to see what's new and we know they will love it! If you've never visited with us before, come and see what so many others have known for decades.

Echo Lake is the best place in Maine!

James and Evelyn both have many years of experience in higher and elementary education, as well as with customer service in retail and food service. James grew up in Winthrop, ME (not far from Echo Lake) and New Orleans, LA while Evelyn grew up in Bay Head, NJ and Sarasota, FL. Both of us attended college in Middlebury, VT. Currently, we live in Maine, just one town to the east, with our three children, Emma, Sylvie, and Charlie. And two cats.

James Feagin purchased this lodge in 2012

We fell in love with this property while looking for a way to change the direction of our lives. James' childhood memories of the area, Evelyn's memories with a similar place in upstate New York formerly owned by her family, and various experiences with summer camps in northern New England instantly made the lodge feel like coming home. The place has been here since 1937 and is the kind of vacation spot that has become very rare. We just knew right away we had to make sure the lodge kept its marvelous character and purpose, and could continue to be shared with all who appreciate what it has to offer.

The lodge will take you back in time as soon as you set foot out of your car. Down a dirt road, surrounded by tall pines, the building looks just like it did when it was built. We have no phones, no TV, and limited wifi service so you can truly relax!

While here, you can soak up peace and quiet, experience true darkness with brilliant stars at night, and enjoy the call of the loon. Only 15 miles from the state capitol, yet you can come here to get away from it all.

Located 15 miles west of Augusta, the state capital, there are plenty of activities for those willing to drive just a bit. The Maine State Museum has wonderful exhibits on the history and culture of the state, and the Children's Discovery Museum is a perfect place to while away a few hours on a rainy day for your little ones. Miniature golf can be found both outdoors and indoors (glow in the dark!). Local restaurants range from pizza and sub shops, to casual and fine dining, to Chinese, Thai, and other ethnic cuisines, and all are family-friendly. In the evening, a short drive to Monmouth will take you to live theater.

Several golf courses are within a half hour drive. These include the Belgrade Lakes Golf Club, the Maple Lane Golf Club, the Augusta Country Club, and more.

If you crave shopping, you can go antiquing in Hallowell, patronize artist collectives in the area, or trek to one of the many fascinating rock shops. Freeport, the home of L.L. Bean, offers wide variety just an hour's drive away. Other attractions along the coast are within easy reach as well, including historic forts, lighthouses, ocean beaches, whale watching, and much more.
