Errol house description

We are now SOLD OUT for Summer 2014. We will open reservations for Summer 15 on January 1, 2015.

One of the only rentals right on the shore of Lake Umbagog. The Wilderness Lodge is the perfect place to find quiet and rest in a beautiful post-and-beam lakefront home. Nestled in the heart of the Lake Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge, we are eco-friendly, totally off the grid, and use solar with propane generator support for energy. We supply all-organic soaps in the bathrooms and organic and fragrance-free laundry soap and fabric softener. If you want contact with the outside world, we have excellent, high speed WiFi you can make and take phone calls via our Skype Phone.

Listen to the loons while you drink your morning coffee on our large open air porch right off the kitchen or on our private dock. Your closest neighbor is 1/2 mile away by water. Enjoy an afternoon on the screened porch or second floor deck. At night, make a fire in the firepit down by the lake and make s'mores after a dinner you've cooked on the Weber gas grill. That's what we used to do with our kids.

You’ll find 2 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms plus a large open sleeping loft off the cathedral ceiling balcony.

The house sleeps 7, has 2 1/2 baths (one full bath on the first floor), a great sound system, grand piano and DVD/VCR to play rentals you can get at the Errol General Store. Use our canoes or bring your own and tie up to our dock. Put your boat in at the Public Boat Launch on Rt 26. Bring your dog and enjoy miles of wilderness walks. You’ll go home rested, refreshed and rejuvenated.

We’re easy striking distance to exceptional fly and lake fishing, fabulous hiking, and flat and white water paddling. There’s trout fishing on the Rapid River and Androscoggin, and golfing at the Balsams Panorama Course and Sunday River. Hike in Grafton Notch and the Appalachian Trail. And of course, there’s paddling on the incomparable Lake Umbagog as well as the Androscoggin and Megalloway Rivers. The canoe is just steps away from the gorgeous covered deck right off the full kitchen.
