Property description

Happy Days Lodge-Wake to the call of the loons and drink your coffee on the deck just steps from the shore. Spend your days on Beech Hill Pond swimming, fishing, boating, enjoying the hot tub,or simply reading in the hammock. A large flat area at the waters edge is perfect for relaxing in the sun or playing beach games. Or, plan to take a drive to world famous Acadia Nat'l Park /Bar Harbor. Go hiking, biking, sightseeing, whale watching, shopping and much more. Discover all that this unique area has to offer. Located in the heart of Downeast Maine, the lodge is located a half hour from Bangor Internat'l Airport.

Sunny, Bright and Immaculate! This lodge boasts a huge custom kitchen with breakfast bar and lots of seating in the open living/dining area. Downstairs offers large rec room with pool table, fooze ball, pinball, darts, plus 2 more bedrooms, 2 more bathrooms and washer and dryer. Skylights, glass doors and lots of lake facing windows drench the lodge with natural light.


The main floor has over-sized kitchen, large open living/dining room, master bedroom with queen-sized bed and master bath with shower. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms each have full size beds, and each have a separate sliding glass door onto a covered deck that overlooks the lake.

The downstairs rec room has wall to wall windows and two sliding glass doors facing the lake, a pool table, retro pinball machines, foozeball, darts, satellite TV, a 2nd full size refrigerator just inside door to waterfront, 2 bathrooms, and washer and dryer. 4th bedroom has double bed bunk beds and 5th bedroom has double bed with twin bunk above. These bedrooms also each have a sliding glass door that opens to a cement patio and the lake just 50 ft away!

Enjoy the Four Seasons of Maine, at its BEST!: SPRING and SUMMER:
Wake to the call of the loons and drink your coffee on the deck just steps from the shores of Beech Hill Pond. Although it's name says 'Pond', Beech Hill is actually a beautiful, crystal clear 4 1/2 mile long, 1 mile wide spring-fed lake.

Enjoy the private dock and spend your days swimming, fishing, boating (canoe/kayak rentals can be delivered right to the cabin), or simply reading in the hammock. Gaze across the lake to the surrounding hills for breathtaking views.

The open deck and covered porch with hot tub provide guests options for sunbathing, star-gazing or enjoying a shady spot to enjoy the view.

There is a large, flat, sand area at the water's edge, great for relaxing in the sun or playing beach games. Picnic tables and chairs provide plenty of lakeside seating.

The fire pit at the water's edge is perfect for end of the day enjoyment...and firewood is provided!

FALL:
Maine's warm fall days and cool, crisp nights are perfect for fishing, hunting, biking, hiking, sightseeing, and reveling in spectacular fall foliage. We are less than 30 miles from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, recognized as one of the best places in the country to view spectacular fall foliage!

WINTER:
Ice fishing, skating, snowmobiling, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, kite-flying on the lake...are just a few of the activities to enjoy at 'Happy Days' Lodge!

Great for holidays, reunions, special celebrations...

Why not spend Labor Day, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's at the perfect Maine get-away...
