Ann Marie and Michael from Long Island were recent guests at the Lodge celebrating their anniversary. They enjoy winter and this was not their first dog sledding adventure, but it was their best. Booked through the Lodge, their Maine guide took them through a wonderful scenic ride, experiencing everything from harnessing the dogs, running the team, to helping cool down.

Lodge Goes Green

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

The recent installation of an outdoor wood furnace is part of the Lodge’s commitment to “Go Green” where ever we can. This unit will allow us to greatly reduce our dependence on heating oil and control heating costs. The original oil burning system remains available as a backup.

The outdoor furnace is tucked away in a small grove of spruce trees. Out of sight, but conveniently close to the Lodge. The growing pile of slit firewood is testimony to some honest labor in the crisp north woods air. Guests tell us the occasional smell of the wood fire adds to the Lodge ambience.
