My wife and I have now stayed at David's place twice this year (once in Mid August and once in late September). This is an amazing place, especially if you want to experience what it feel to be in the backwoods of Maine - yet experience total comfort. We were lucky to have to use the gas stove to warm...

For the fourth time since 2011 I have had a wonderful time at Williams Pond Lodge B&B. A full week of delicious and satisfying breakfasts, unending supply of shortbread, and luscious evening desserts. Also a full week of morning kayak outings on the pond followed by a quick swim, and most days another run with the kayak in late afternoon.... More

My vacation plans have always revolved around one simple fact, a room away from home is just a place to unpack, sleep and shower. David has changed my whole vacation philosophy. My wife and I stayed with David for 9 nights as a part of our 25th wedding anniversary in September, and I can honestly say his hospitality and love... More

Williams Pond Lodge is one of those places that’s out of a storybook – the view of the lake, the comfy, cozy rooms and décor – every little detail has been taken into consideration to make your stay there a true Maine experience. The bed and breakfast is run by David who is high on hospitality and a character of... More

My husband and I stayed with Dave for 4 nights and I wish it was longer. When I was looking for a place to stay in Maine I did not want to be in the middle of town. I was looking for something that would make me feel like I was in Maine, and this was it. Rooms are really... More

We had originally booked this B&B to break up our Boston to Saint John N.B. trip since it was pretty close to half way. It ended up being the best part of our trip! We spent three nights in the Treehaven room (Highly recommend this room) and thus were lucky enough to have three AMAZING breakfasts with the host, David,... More

My husband and I had the chance to get away for an evening and decided to use a certificate to WPL that someone had given us. What a fantastic gift!! We are already planning on going back in the fall, cannot wait!! The room was adorable with a fun outdoorsy/camping theme, but not kitschy. The grounds themselves are just lovely,... More

Superbly remote location at the end of a track, way out in the woods on the edge of a lake. David lives in a wonderful old cabin that has a suberb open plan common area where he excels in entertaining and producing unexpected culinary delights. The accommodation comprises three gueest rooms in a nearly new and extremely well designed and... More

I have just completed my third visit to Williams Pond Lodge. Twenty-one nights! Wonderful! I arrived in late Spring and saw the arrival of Summer and July 4th. As always, David was a terrific host, breakfast chef, dessert baker, conversationalist, planner of fun activities, piper, and sometimes companion on coastal excursions. I was lucky enough to see and hear him... More
