The Oak Lodge is located on the historic “island” of Mt. Kineo, an area rich with history and beauty. In fact, the seven cottages on 'cottage row' were recently selected by the national register of historic places as a historic district. Specifically, the Oak Lodge was cited for being one of the 'few Mission style homes from the Arts & Crafts era in Maine.' The newest owners have divided it in half and use one side for themselves and rent out the other half as its own unit. Mt. Kineo is not accessible by car, there is a ferry shuttle service. There is also a private dock if you have or will rent a boat. To access the dock from the lodge is a new deck with gas grill and seating for 8. These decks are also a nice secluded spot to read a book or watch the sunset. Walk about 1 mile to the famous “pebble beach,” one of the most beautiful beaches on the lake, located by the rock cliffs, there is also a lovely pebble beach just two houses down that is a perfect place to swim and sun. This lodge has been recently remodelled and is beautiful, combined with this absolutely unique location, this is truly a great vacation getaway.

Sam and Amanda, thanks for all your help and excellent customer service. We'll be back next year!
Love the property. It's not fancy and has some quirks but we love the character and being on Kineo. Also love the improvements to the back bedroom in first floor. It also helps that Karen lets us use plates, glasses, etc from her side if we run short. We're usually one of the last renters of the season and some of the kitchen items can be low but it's great to borrow from Karen and then return them at the end of our stay.
