We had the pleasure of staying at Ledge Lodge over the July 4th week, and truly it was one of the best vacations our family ever had. Beautiful surrounding towns like Stonington in Deer Isle, Castine, and Bar Harbor make this a very unique spot to visit and enjoy. Betsy and Brian are wonderful hosts, and we hope to return soon.

Staying at Ledge Lodge was one of best experiences we have ever had. The cabin is quite lovely; it is rustic but comfortable, cozy but not confining. It is well kept, clean, and provided with all the basics for cabin life, as well as amenities such as a nice dock, clean beach for swimming and beautiful views: the view out the front windows across Walker Pond is stunning! The owners take very good care of the cabin and are always cordial in responding if anything is needed. They have taken great care to make the cabin welcoming, attractive and comfortable. The pellet stove warms the cabin quickly on chilly mornings, and the fireplace provides an extra bit of coziness on cool rainy days. We could not have asked for a better experience, and we would rent the cabin again in a heartbeat. There are interesting towns nearby, Acadia National Park is an easy drive, and good shopping - including farmer's markets - is not far away. We have no hesitation in recommending this cabin, with the caveat that it is relatively small and would be most comfortable for 2-4 people.

I couldn't have picked a better place for my family. My boys, ages 9 & 14, love to swim, snorkel & fish and what a great place for that. Ledge Lodge is exactly what you would imagine an old fishing cabin in Maine would be. There is so much history in this cabin, you feel taken back in time. There are fish traced on wooden planks hanging all over the cabin with the date caught, weight, location & name of fisherman on them dating back to the 1930's. It is equipped with everything you need and the owners are very helpful. I am so happy that Betsy decided to share her family history with all who come to stay here. We thoroughly enjoyed the private setting and serenity. Acadia is within an hour drive as well as Camden. I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking of a Maine vacation.

The cozy cottage speaks of charm, history, and beautiful lakeside views. All needs were met in the cottage and by Betsy and Brian who are very close by. The lake is great for swimming from their long dock and raft, and for canoing and kayaking. The countryside is full of interesting and scenic drives and places nestled here and there nearby.

My family and I have enjoyed returning to Ledge Lodge over the past several years; in fact it has become a "must do" for our summer vacation. The cabin is located in an extremely quiet area, with little boat traffic and is close to all amenities. Our favorite part is coming back to the cabin in the evenings after visiting some of Maine's beautiful seaside fishing villages, perhaps enjoying a meal while watching stunning sunsets. Other close by day trips/activities include exploring acadia National Park, Bar Harbor or taking on one of the many tourist attractions. We also enjoy kayaking, canoeing, swimming etc., on those days where we just prefer a nice relaxing day at the lake while time floats on by. It is not a luxury vacation, but whether for a romantic getaway, catching up on reading or family time, you will be hard pressed to find a more charming and enjoyable rental.

I have stayed at Ledge-Lodge more times than I can remember. It is always a refreshing and reconnecting experience. Calming and centering. The quiet calm lapping of the crystal clear water on the beachy edge of Walker Pond. The smell of pine trees and the sound of the breeze through the trees, pine and otherwise, the cool water tickling the tops of your feet and the sand massaging the soles, the across lake views with large sky, brings the senses to reawaken in a serene & universal way.
The cabin has everything one needs to accompany the environment. On the one hand rustic with authentic warming relics of past decades of family use, on the other leaving nothing left needed for a simple yet fully comfortable life.
If you want to feel like you 'got away' but don't want to rough it. This place will fill you and connect you with nature.
