Two wonderful nights were spent at this haven in the woods. It is a beautiful setting on the pond and so very quiet and peaceful! David and Dominick are wonderful hosts. David is quite the chef and provides gourmet breakfasts and also great dessert in the evening. A tin of homemade shortbread cookies was waiting for us when we got... More

This place is all about the owner David who is a fantastic man. It was an experience just talking to him and understanding what he is trying to do with his property and life in the woods. He runs the 3 room B & B off a remote road 15 minute outside of Bucksport totally solar powered. It is off... More

Just finished up a three day visit to this lovely B&B. I went with my two children, ages 10 and 6. They absolutely loved it! David was a great host and was able to offer great advice about day trips that would be fun and age appropriate for the kids. We especially enjoyed canoeing around the lake watching the osprey...

One night just to hear the loons, another to ogle the fireflies, a third just to sit around the commons room with other guests and enjoy the bananas foster that David has made.... Otherworldly. Room was spotless and rustic, beds comfortable, breakfasts five star(German pancakes with a side of smoked trout, anyone?), peace and beauty and quiet. A bit out... More

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

Eagle and heron seen while on the pond. Breakfasts and snacks plentiful and delicious. Host, David very interested in making your visit enjoyable in a lovely area of Maine. The... 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
