If you ever thought about visiting Up North Maine I have a special place to tell you about. A scenic two and a half hour drive north of Bangor, on a small but dramatic island on Moosehead Lake, there is an old Arts and Craft style lodge sitting in the shadow of the impressive rock face of Mount Kineo. The historic Oak Lodge is owned and operated by some good friends of ours whose welcoming and laid-back style has cultivated a loyal clientele. Many of their seasonal bookings are returning guests who come to enjoy the company of the proprietors as much as the golf course, hiking and nature viewing. Having known the Musser family for many years we can certainly understand why.
Our last visit happened to be over the 4th of July, so we got to participate in the annual golf cart parade and island lobster boil and picnic.
We had a great time visiting, hiking, rock climbing, canoeing and fishing.
So if you ever have the opportunity, take a trip up north to Maine, Moosehead Lake and the historic Oak Lodge.
