About David Dane
I am an avid fly fisherman who enjoys the elements. I have been spending time in the Lake Nicatous area for 30 years. My wife Cathie and I manage the property and we are already looking forward to next season. My business partners Steve and Patty Schuster love the outdoors and the quiet and solitude of Lake Nicatous and they are second generation Nicatous people. Together we provide for all of the coverage and we share the hosting responsibility. My skills include facilitating business meeting and leading discussion. I am the former CEO of LOGIX Fiber Networks and I was the COO at Newwave Communications and at Atlantic Broadband before that. We also organize and conduct successful corporate retreats on the property.
David Dane purchased this Lodge in 2012
Why David Dane chose East Hancock
The beauty and simplicity of a stay at the lodge is good for the soul! What do you require in order to enjoy life? A great meal? Physical activity like hunting and fishing? A good read? Connecting with loved ones or getting to know an acquaintance or business associate better? We are remote, but not isolated. We have broadband internet, a text center, Dish, and cell coverage. We think that we have reached the right balance between the need for modern conveniences and the need that many of us have to get back to simpler times when human beings were more in tune with their natural surroundings and nature. Having said all that we can offer any kind of outdoor experience that you want including a formal wedding or a black tie event. Use your imagination and think back to the turn of the century when aristocrats from New York City took a long train ride to experience the outdoors here in Maine. Or think pragmatically about the many hunters and fisherman who have stayed at the over the years.
What makes this Lodge unique
Step back in time. See what life was like before modern conveniences introduced so much stress into our lives. Stay at the Nicatous Lodge and experience the same sights and sounds and feelings of past generations, but if you need to check in we do have wireless! Bonfires at night, fishing at the first light of day, the sounds of the dam and falls. Adirondack chairs overlooking the lake or a seat in out screen house.
