Wickyup Camp is located on one of the most beautiful and private lakes in all New England and is available to couples and families who not only want a quiet and relaxing vacation but also one full of activities and adventure. If you have a rainy day, no problem! Wickyup has a large game room with ping-pong, air hockey, foosball and TV with an extensive dvd collection of movies . Five miles long, Tunk Lake has only 12 cabins on the southern 2/3 of the lake. Wickyup is perfect for your family vacation!
Local Shopping & Medical Facilities: Ellsworth is about 30 minutes from the Wickyup. It includes 2 grocery store chains (Hanaford & Shaws), WalMart, Fast Food (McDonalds, Wendys, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Friendly's, Taco Bell, etc), Home Depot, Lowes, Hospital, Walk-in Medical Clinic, movie theater, and much more.
Location: Tunk Lake: There is swimming, hiking, Mt. climbing, boating, fishing on Tunk Lake, and since the lake has so few cabins, boat traffic is very light. No Jet Skis are allowed (by law).
Bar Harbor is a beautiful old New England town and a must-see. ACADIA NATIONAL PARK is the northeast’s only National Park. Don't miss Schoodic Point which is part of Acadia National Park and is just up the coast in the Winter Harbor area.
Restaurants: There are many restaurants between Tunk Lake and Ellsworth, in the Winter Harbor area, and in Bar Harbor. There is something for everyone from all the major fast food chains (in Ellsworth) to very fine dining.
Golf: There are several golf courses in the area anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour away. Winter Harbor's golf course has views to the ocean from every hole!
Wickyup II is named after our grandparents original lodge (built in 1927-28) which burned to the ground in 1984. Waiting 23 years to be able to rebuild, Wickyup II was erected in 2007on the property which has been in the family since 1938. It has special meaning to us as we remember all the wonderful times we had as children and can now pass those experiences on to our children and grandchildren.
The charm of this beautiful log cabin coupled with forest wilderness makes this location exceptionally heartwarming. The peace and quiet is amazing; unless of course there are parties and children laughing and playing! Listening to the 'quiet' is an experience few of us are familiar with. The crisp clear sounds of wildlife free of any human racket is priceless. The cry of the loon is heard often adding to the feeling of tranquility.The night sky, free of incident lighting is a blanket of stars. Hours spent on the dock at night identifying constellations can not only be a learning experience but also quite romantic! The covered porch has two adjustable hammock chairs with foot slings perfect for reading, napping and just plain swinging. The VERY large open deck looks out on the lake and over the lawn area complete with hammock. For more, see amenities.
Cabin is spectacular with all amenities possibly needed. If you are a cook you will love the extra appliances. There is a beautiful free standing gas fireplace with 3 side viewing. It was a little chilly on some days to swim but the water is so crisp and clear that it invites you in! We spent much time kayaking and canoeing. The mountains and foliage were gorgeous and hiking trails to the top of Schoodic and Black mountains gave us a 360 view of other lakes as well as Frenchman's Bay and Bar Harbor. Biking in Acadia National Park on beautiful trails was wonderful. Serene and comforting but with much to do made this a great October vacation!
If you enjoy tranquillity and relaxation in a remote setting with all the comforts of home on a spring fed, crystal clear lake, look no further. Tunk captures the true essence of Maine, from the mountains that surround the lake to the sounds of loons. This cabin was very clean and well stocked with all the amenities necessary for housing a large family. Having access to a private beach for children, to the use of kayaks, dock, and float makes a perfect setting for family recreational activities. All this plus close proximity to Acadia National park, hiking trails and restaurants makes this a true well rounded vacation.
This cabin had all the accommodations of home in a remote location on a lake that is second to none. Breathtaking beauty is all around and its close to everything you could want to do. Hike the nearby trails of Donnell Pond Reserve, shop and eat in the nearby town of Ellsworth or take a day trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. This cabin is idyllically located to give you everything Maine has to offer.
This handsome, spacious log home in a remote, beautiful location is one-of-a-kind. Everything is provided for cooking, comfort and recreation for a group of 12, all ages. The home is immaculate and comfortable, with a large play room complete with ping pong, air hockey, exercise equipment, foos ball, darts, and a movie viewing corner with an extensive selection of DVDs.The wrap-around deck and porch invite reading and conversation. We enjoyed learning about the history of the area and the property from the materials left for our interest. The kitchen works well with four people in it. The beach, dock and float are in excellent condition. We enjoyed swimming out to the island and back. The kayaks and canoe were used often. Bikers will find roads and trails nearby.
