You also have a piano in each room with a stereo in the dining room.

Dogs are welcome, though we do have a fee of $50 per dog, per week. You must keep them on a leash and clean up after them.
On the grounds, you will find a dock, kayaks, rowboats, and a sandy beach with swim float for water-based fun. There is also a fire pit with wood provided for evening campfires and marshmallow roasting. Additional opportunities for those of a competitive nature include horseshoes, badminton, volleyball, and a basketball hoop. Walkers can stroll about the immediate grounds, tramp through several acres of woods behind the lodge, or go out along the access road toward Route 17. Once there, it is a short walk downhill to the Fayette Country Store.
Echo Lake is one of the most pristine bodies in the area with multiple species of game fish including trout, salmon, and bass. The lake covers nearly 1,200 acres with a maximum depth of 117 feet, and is about three miles long. A public boat launch is located at the north end of the lake if you bring your own powered watercraft.

About the owner: James and Evelyn both have many years of experience in higher and elementary education, as well as with customer service in retail and food service. James grew up in Winthrop, ME (not far from Echo Lake) and New Orleans, LA while Evelyn grew up in Bay Head, NJ and Sarasota, FL. Both of us attended college in Middlebury, VT. Currently, we live in Maryland with our three children, Emma, Sylvie, and Charlie. And two cats.
Why the Owner Chose Fayette:
We fell in love with this property while looking for a way to change the direction of our lives. James' childhood memories of the area, Evelyn's memories with a similar place in upstate New York formerly owned by her family, and various experiences with summer camps in northern New England instantly made the lodge feel like coming home. The place has been here since 1937 and is the kind of vacation spot that has become very rare. We just knew right away we had to make sure the lodge kept its marvelous character and purpose, and could continue to be shared with all who appreciate what it has to offer.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
The lodge will take you back in time as soon as you set foot out of your car. Down a dirt road, surrounded by tall pines, the building looks just like it did when it was built. We have no phones, no TV, and no Internet service so you can truly relax! Only 15 miles from the state capitol, yet you can come here to get away from it all.
