About the Property
Lodge has 3 BRs, 1 bath, sleeps 6. Guest House sleeps 4 with own bath, pond view
A private dock, sandy entry and canoe are yours to enjoy all Howard Pond has to offer - boating, trout and salmon fishing, swimming or just lazing on the dock . Sunset Lodge basks in the sun all day and catches the final rays and dramatic sunsets.
The nearby Mahoosuc and White Mountains provide world-class hiking while the Androscoggin River in Hanover village offers outstanding fly and spin fishing for trout and bass.
Sunset Lodge: Experience “Sunset Lodge”, the quintessential Maine lakefront summer cottage on pristine Howard Pond, a breathtakingly beautiful, mountain-encircled, deep water lake in western Maine. Just 1 ½ hours from Portland and 20 minutes to Bethel (fine dining, shopping, groceries, movies) this accessible yet secluded vacation spot will take you thousands of miles and 100 years from your everyday life.
Nearby Hiking and Fishing: The nearby Mahoosuc and White Mountains provide world-class hiking while the Androscoggin River at the foot of Howard Pond Avenue offers outstanding fly and spin fishing for trout and small mouth bass. Fishermen will enjoy both wading and drift boating. Guide services are available and a public landing is located behind the Town Hall.
Howard Pond: A private dock, beach and canoe are yours to enjoy all Howard Pond has to offer – boating, fishing (trout and land locked salmon), swimming or just lazing the afternoon away on the dock with your toes in the water. The aptly named “Sunset Lodge” basks in the sun all day and catches the final rays and dramatic sunsets from its western facing porches and dock.

Howard Pond is a mountain lake, nestled between Plumbago, Dimmock and Howard mountains in Western Maine. A one mile trip up Howard Pond Road brings you to the clear fresh waters of the 140-acre pond that reaches depths of over 100 feet. The pond is beautiful for swimming, canoeing, kayaking and fishing for trout and land-locked salmon. The pond is stocked annually by the State. At the foot of the hill is the Androscoggin River with nearby opportunities for float trips and shoreline fishing for bass and trout. The Appalachian Trail and Grafton Notch State Park are all within a half hour's drive. Shorter hikes can be found out the front door or within a few minutes drive. Nearby Bethel is a year round center for tourism in Maine with numerous restaurants and shops as well as traditional and health food groceries. The Sunday River Resort offers spa services year round. Rumford offers an excellent Hannaford grocery store and several restaurants. Mt. Washington Observatory, an hour and a quarter drive from Howard Pond, is the highest spot in the Northeast.

About the owner: We own our own camp next to Sunset Lodge and have enjoyed Howard Pond since 1990. In our free time, when not relaxing at the pond, we enjoy traveling and have had the chance to stay in great apartments and homes around the country and overseas. We bring back from our travels ideas about how to improve Sunset Lodge and always welcome feedback for improvements, too.
