Parsonsfield lodge description

Our Owner is a Maine Outdoors Enthusiast Professional of 30 Years. He takes a personal interest in everyone who rents the property as you are his only guest while you are there and wants to ensure that you experience Maine as it should be... We make every accommodation necessary to make sure you will come back again and again!

Imagine your own secluded hideaway located in the heart of more than 400 acres of undeveloped forests, ponds and streams, yet still within an hour's drive of all the best that Maine and New Hampshire have to offer!! Hike, bike, swim, fish, enjoy the coastal beaches, local seafood, pick some strawberries or blueberries and so much more!!

Conveniently located only 2.5 hrs outside of Boston and just over 6.0 hrs from NYC, this hidden gem offers a peaceful and serene experience with plenty of opportunity to take in the natural beauty that will surround you. Enjoy the rustic atmosphere in this beautiful log facility made from lumber harvested from the property without sacrificing all of the comforts that you need. Take advantage of boating, canoeing or fishing in one of the many ponds, lakes, rivers and streams, go for a hike on the Appalachian Trail or on just one of the closer and less travelled mountains, take a short drive to Mt Washington or to one of Maine's many coastal beaches and seafood eateries....

From the first hint of spring through the lazy days of summer, Maine is an outdoor wonderland. You can explore the coast, mountains, woods, rivers and lakes by kayak, bike or boat. Enjoy culinary treats that can only be found locally like blueberries and strawberries to Maine's clams, shrimp and lobster. Get to know the locals at a summer festival. With 17 million acres of Maine forest, and 400 acres at your fingertips, you are sure to experience all the outdoors has to offer.

The wood cabin is the only rental unit on the entire property and boasts an open kitchen and living area with commercial gas stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, cookware, utensils, full bath, heat and electricity. There is also a utility room that is equipped with a washer and dryer. A recreation building is available equipped with ping pong, professional pool table, air hockey, foosball table, darts and archery in case of a rainy day or slow evening. There is also a horseshoe pit set up adjacent to the picnic area. The main bedroom has both a queen-sized bed and additional bunk bed, with 3 additional bunks located in the two other bedrooms. For parties of 10 or more (or those just seeking additional space), there is an adjacent bunkhouse house that can sleep eight (4-bunks) and is complete with its own fully functional bath (additional fees apply).

Enjoy on-site access to all non-motorized water sports equipment (paddle boats, canoes, kayaks, row boats, etc.), picnic and camp-fire areas, or outdoor recreational sports activities such as volleyball or horseshoes.

We have Registered Maine Guides on-site available to provide Day Hikes, Canoeing, Kayaking or Fishing Day Trips, as well as Nature Tours and Outdoor Survival Skills Training Classes (for an additional fee). We request that these requests be made in advance so that we can make sure there is a guide available to take you during your stay.
