About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 12 Sleeps

Pristine Alamoosook Lake in the little town of Orland (sssh, it's one

of Maine's best kept secrets). Serenity, peace, and tranquility await

you. Awaken with the sun to the sound of the loons. Enjoy a cup of

coffee on the deck of our luxurious home. Look for the eagles who

make this lake their home and appreciate the splendor of nature, pure

and unadulterated, on a leisurely canoe ride. Refresh yourself with a

swim in the surprisingly warm, crisp, clean water. Top off your day

with an evening barbeque and a night under the stars. This is the

ideal vacation retreat for anyone looking to return to nature and

emerge renewed and refreshed. Everyone's paradise, you can relax and

read or write, draw or paint, or venture out and explore. Easily

accessible, we're minutes from the Route 1 corridor, the gateway to

many Maine attractions, and Bangor International Airport is just 25

miles away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for making your lakehouse available for visitors. We needed the calm, peace and solitude that the lake and the loons gave to us. We spent several days exploring the lake, fishing, listening to the beautiful call of the loons and sitting by the campfire each night. We biked the Schoodic Peninsula and the Acadia carriage trails from the visitor's center to Jordon Pond House for popovers! We climbed the Precipice Trail to the summit of Champlain Mountain and made it! We sailed on the Margaret Todd on the most beautiful clear day- it was awesome.

Staying at the lake house was perfect and allowed us to do things at our own pace. It was very relaxing and gave us time to reflect on everything. It is so hard to leave, but the wonderful memories we made this week will be with us forever.

Again, thank you.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

I live in the area and was looking for a camp to rent for a family and friends get together. Speaking as a local I can say that the rates are great for the location and camp/house. The owners were so nice. The camp/house is on a beautiful piece of property and is set up in a way that our get together was a hit with young and old. There is plenty of room inside and out. Thank you for a great stay!

Something for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is perfectly located for anyone who is looking for the best of what Maine has to offer. Not only is it well maintained, spotless and complete with "all the comforts of home", it is situated on one of Maine's most beautiful lakes. If you like swimming, hiking, paddling (canoe or kayak), or just sitting with a cup of coffee listening to the birds, you could not choose better accomodations.

Wildlife abounds in this pristine setting. Not only were we lucky enough to have a visit from a bald eagle, we were serenaded each evening by several loons.

Our favorite place to visit in Maine is Acadia National Park. There is so much to do on Mount Desert Island, and it's just 40 minutes away from this wonderful home...well, it's 40 minutes if you don't stop at some of the antique shops along the way.

Of course, no visit to Maine would be complete with out fresh lobster. For that we made a visit to Carrier's Lobster Pound. (Yum!) Not only were the lobsters delicious, the owner and his family were awesome!

If you're like us and you can't take the Maine winter, enjoy a Maine summer!

Thanks, Pam and Brian, for sharing your beautiful home with our family!

Even a Native Mainer ranks this place #1

  • 5 of 5

I grew up in Maine and I have now lived in Colorado for 20 years. My family and I rented this cabin in July 2009 and had the best Maine vacation we could have imagined. The location on Alamoosook Lake (the lake I grew up on) is a picture perfect setting with great swimming, great views, and lots of enjoyment fireside each evening. The accomodations are excellent, plenty of comfortable beds, a nice deck overlooking the lake, fun times on the kayaks and the canoe, and a large area to visit around the campfire. The full kitchen and multiple bathrooms are also excellent. The proximity to Bucksport, Bar Harbor (Acadia National Park), and other "down-east" fun is unparalleled, and the camp is not very far off the main road of Route 1. This is THE PLACE to rent if you are considering touring the area, while at the same time looking for some excellent "down time" for relaxation and quiet. The loon calls in the evening are as soothing as the tiny ripples of water lapping up against the waterfront each night. The owners keep this place in great condition and are easy to work with. Take it from a native Mainah' - you will enjoy this property for a great Maine getaway!

The home of Craig Brook National Fish Hatchery, Alamoosook Lake is

fantastic for fishing, bird watching, canoeing, kayaking, and

swimming. Hike on nearby Great Pond Mountain or venture further to

Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park (35 miles away) for endless

adventurous hiking and gorgeous sunsets overlooking Bar Harbor. Bar

Harbor's reputation for dining and shopping precedes itself. They

also have bike rentals available in the town which you can take back

up the mountain for an exhilarating, or leisurely, ride on the

carriage roads. (Don't forget to stop for popovers at Jordan Pond

when you're through!) Fantastic dining and shopping also await you in

the picturesque Camden waterfront village 50 miles away. The smaller

towns of Blue Hill, Castine, Belfast, and Ellsworth (each within 20

miles or so of Alamoosook Lake) are all jewels well worth exploring.

Please don't forget to visit the little town of Bucksport, home of

the original Fort Knox, just 5 miles away. Here you can take a look

at the stunning new Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory from its

quaint waterfront walkway. This latest modern marvel of enginering

technology opened the summer '07.
