Beautifully Remodeled Bear Room :: Luxury Maine B&B

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

When you own a lodge, a lot goes into a room remodel but most importantly it must appeal to a diverse customer base, particularly guests looking for a luxurious experience.

First, the Bear room had to retain the bear theme.  The beds in the Lodge are all hand carved and are the focal point of each room.  We were able to enlarge the frame from a queen to a king using the same posters.  More and more guests prefer king size beds.

The other major focal point of the Bear Room is the view.  This room had a standard double hung window and a small deck; neither took full advance of this feature, so we enlarged the window.  This wasn’t just a picture window but we sourced windows with a crank out design on the bottom to provide ventilation, wonderful fresh air and cool night breezes.  We then enlarged the deck facing the lake so guests could relax and lounge in privacy.  Privacy walls were also built on the deck.

Next, we considered room arrangement.  When the new window was installed, it was necessary to move the fireplace.  A beautiful floor to ceiling stone fireplace was installed on the opposite corner allowing us to create a cozy seating area and more space for the enlarged bed.  We installed a large reclaimed wood beam over the fireplace giving it a warm, lodge patina. A south window was removed for more wall space; a large HD TV was hung on the wall and an area rug brought the seating area together.

We had a hand-carved mirror to match the beds that was placed in the bathroom. Keeping the bear theme, we found a beautiful piece of granite that was perfect for the large vanity top, beverage center and footrest in the shower. The granite has lots of black and earth tones – you might think it resembles the walls of a bear cave – a fancy bear cave anyway.  The bath had a Jacuzzi-style tub/shower.  This was removed to make way for a new modern large tile shower and enlarged vanity.  We learned guests like more space for their things so larger vanities are a plus.  The large shower has both a rain showerhead and handheld shower hose.  If that wasn’t enough luxury we added a towel warmer.

In the corner of the room we installed the beverage center. Guests can brew their own coffee and access water and ice.  The beverage center also includes a small refrigerator, coffee mugs, wine and water glasses; creamers, sugar, wine opener – all you need.

Temperature control was another upgrade; the new fireplace includes a remote, as does the new personal air conditioning unit. No need to move from your chair or bed to   control your environment.

The finished room offers luxury, comfort and relaxation – all you could ever want for a luxury vacation in the North woods of Maine. Book early to be sure you get the Bear Room.

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.
