For the past 4 summers, my family has been traveling from Maryland to Maine to enjoy a relaxing week at Sunset Lodge on Howard Pond. Sunset Lodge is a quintessential Maine cabin that has been restored to perfectly capture how simple life can be in Maine's beautiful outdoors, while also providing modern amenities to keep life easy. The main lodge and guest house are clean and well-kept and can comfortably accommodate multiple families. The loft is spacious and has been the perfect spot for our older kids to spread out. We have also taken advantage of the furnished pump house on the waters edge, which has room for 2 to spend a quiet night and capture the early morning call of the resident loons. Our children have enjoyed countless hours fishing off the dock, swimming in the wonderfully sandy swimming/wading area, and canoeing and kayaking on the quiet pond. On the occasional rainy day, there are plenty of games, movies and books provided in the cabin to keep everyone entertained. We were delighted last year to also have the opportunity to enjoy a campfire under the stars in the newly added fire pit. The lodge is aptly named as sunsets on the porch overlooking the pond are spectacular. Peter and Lisa are the perfect hosts - they extend plenty of privacy, but are available at a moments notice if necessary. The week always goes by too quickly. We look forward to our next trip up to Sunset Lodge!
