I think that the 5 Lakes Lodge is a little piece of paradise. From the moment we arrived, Debbie, Rick and Sam the Dog made us comfortable and welcome. When we arrived, Sam met us at our car, showed us the way to the front door, how to open the front door and took us to the stairs. Seriously. We stayed in the Pemadumcook room which had views of the lake from both windows and a stunning view of Mt. Katahdin. At night the stars are so bright that it looks like you can reach out and touch them. There are many trails which Debbie and Rick can give directions to along with advice on difficulty. Breakfast is a complete delight. Debbie is a excellent cook and Rick keeps the coffee coming. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the bathroom with the giant jacuzzi tub was great. We sat in the rocking chairs in our room more than we thought we would just looking out at the lake and talking. It was a really great stay.
We were visiting family in the area and will happily return to 5 Lakes Lodge. It is romantic, peaceful and also a great starting place for outdoor activities. I can't vouch for the outdoor activities because that's not my thing but other guests seemed to like it.
