About the Property

10 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, sleeps 20 in four buildings

Sunset Lodge, built in 1919, will return you to a bygone era. Sited on the Eastern shore of Lake Damariscotta on 1 1/2 acres of rolling lawn and woods, with 330 feet of pristine water frontage (with great fishing and fabulous swimming directly in front of the property), two dock/floats, a small sandy beach and beautiful sunset views to the west, this property is perfect for family reunions or for several families who want to vacation together, enjoying the peace and serenity of one of Maine's most beautiful lakes. The Lodge has an 80 ft long screened porch for eating or just sitting in the evening to hear the loons. The Lodge has 5 bedrooms (all with a view of the lake); 4 bathrooms, a newly remodeled large and well-equipped kitchen, a large room for group activities, and a new 620 square foot game room with pool and ping pong tables. The Lakeside cabin has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There are 2 small 1 bedroom cabins with bathroom. Each unit has a fully equipped kitchen with stove, refrigerator, microwave, utensils, barbecue and wood stove for cool evenings. All cabins have screened porches. There is a shuffleboard court. There are canoes, kayaks and a sunfish to rent, for an additional fee.

Great Fishing: Sunset Lodge is fortunate to be located on Damariscotta Lake, one of the great fishing lakes in Maine. It was sited in 1919, so it's one of the best on the lake. At over 4,000 acres,the lake is large enough and varied enough to please any fisherman, as it has pleased this fisherman for over thirty years.

Take your kids, a few worms, and motor down only a couple of minutes from the cabins. Schools of perch feed in the evenings. Small mouth and large mouth bass can be found along the shorelines throughout the lake. If you like to troll, brown trout, lake trout and land-locked salmon hide in the deeper parts of great bay, straight out from the cabins. There are also large yellow perch, catfish and pickerel. Over the years, it's been a pleasure to fish this lake. Come to Sunset Lodge and share the pleasure.
-- Don Dougherty

Great Swimming: The water is great. Swim off the beautiful new docks or from the shore. Take a morning or evening swim up or down the the lake with its interesting shoreline and eagles flying overhead.

Great Boating: You can't beat the Damariscotta Lake for boating. Sailboats, motorboats, rowboats and windsurfing all popular on this 10 mile long lake.

The property has a shuffle board, a ping pong table, a pool table and lots of games and puzzles.

Manager info

About: Sunset Lodge is owned by four families who have vacationed together on the lake for 20 years, first renting and then at Sunset Lodge which they purchased in 2002. Restoring the Lodge to its former glory has been a decade long process.

Why Jefferson, ME, USA:
Sunset Lodge is unique. It is large enough to accommodate family reunions and groups, and provides four separate buildings for sleeping. It was orinially built in 1919 when they had their pick of sites on the lake. The Lodge is sited on the eastern shore at the widest part of the Great Bay where the lake is a mile and a half across, and the sunsets are glorious.
