The Lodge – a place for Romantic Getaways in Maine

Friday, February 7th, 2014

Looking for romance can find you at the Lodge at Moosehead Lake. Romance can be uncovered in many ways but at the Lodge we think it includes luxury and relaxation.  Many amenities have been added to create that special experience and the Katahdin suite has been noted as one of the most romantic.  It’s the King sleigh bed, two fireplaces (in the seating area and in the bathroom) makes it the perfect retreat for romantic getaways in Maine.  Add to that a double Jacuzzi style tub and flickering candle light and the frame of mind is set.   If you aren’t the romantic type but appreciate the mood, we have a list of ideas – from Champagne & strawberries, a relaxing massage for two or spend time on one of six private room decks gazing at the incredible stars on a clear night, snuggled together under a blanket.

The beauty of Moosehead Lake can be a special aphrodisiac.  Have a picnic lunch prepared with a bottle of wine for an escape to one of the areas beautiful waterfalls.  Watching the sunset over Moose Mountain with a bottle of wine and a charcuterie platter is another special option. Candlelight dinner in the lake view dining room overlooking Moosehead Lake and surrounding mountains is totally relaxing, not to mention the delicious food.

The Katahdin Suite – often called the most romantic room at the Lodge has a newly remodeled bathroom complete with tile floor, enlarged tile shower with rain shower head, tiled double jacuzzi-style tub and double vanity.  This vanity is a piece of art and not to be found anywhere else.  The vanity is made from rustic wood found on the property and finished with real copper top.  Notice the birch wood door inserts.  The middle section, that looks like 3 drawers is actually a compact refrigerator.  And don’t forget the bathroom fireplace…what a treat.
