We spent the previous week on the coast visiting Acadia before heading up north for the last part of our trip, seeking peace, quiet, and hiking opportunities. We were amazed at the setting. Such a beautiful spot right on the purest lake with the most amazing view of Katahdin. Hiking aplenty in nearby Baxter State Park. But the most special qualities of this accommodation center around the the gracious owners, the lovely comfortable rooms in this lodge built by the owner, the made from scratch delicious breakfasts and all the guidance and tips on activities available in the area. They were amazing. They even took us on a boat trip around the lakes to view the eagle families in the area and share in an almost surreal experience of seeing these birds of prey in action. We would love to come back.

Place is immaculately clean. Debbie makes a wonderful breakfast. She was very accommodating when I asked for a few specifics because of my diabetes. View from the room was amazing and there were a few comfortable chairs in front of the window to sit and enjoy it. Debbie was very respectful of social distancing and always wore a mask. Rick however was a different story. Nice enough guy, but never wore a mask and did not respect our space. When possible we backed away. Unfortunately he approached us during breakfast and there was nowhere to run. So if you take Covid seriously and have per-existing conditions you may want to think seriously about staying there. Would have 5 stars if not for his attitude about masks and space.

Beyond every expectation we had prior to arriving at this slice of heaven. Exquisite and sparkling clean. Debbie and Rick are the types of hosts that people dream of having; extremely knowledgable of the surrounding area and super-accommodating at every level, while still giving their guests complete privacy. What’s beautiful is the way that they love life and take pride (in the most humble way) of the dream they have built and share with others. Debbie prepares delicious breakfast sandwiches and a sweet treat for those who are off to an early start and unable to make the 7 AM breakfast start. The beachfront is the perfect space to breathe deeply and be still for a bit. Kayaks are available on site. We were fortunate enough to take a 5 pm boat ride to watch the eagles while exploring the lake and an evening fire was offered for those who wished to join. Our room was just gorgeous and my husband (who rarely sits still) made good use of the rockers in our room as he overlooked the lake and Mt. Katahdin for a few hours. It did our hearts and minds good to get away. If you’re looking to hike the peaks of Maine, searching for some much-needed R&R or snowmobile freshly-groomed trails (Rick is the President of Jo Mary Riders Snowmobile Club) then look no further! This gem fit the bill in EVERY. SINGLE. WAY! This was our first trip and we can’t wait to return!

My boyfriend and I stayed at 5 Lakes the first week of this past July and we could not have been any more pleased. The entire lodge was gorgeous- from the bedrooms to the lounge area and accessible lake. Rick took us on a pontoon boat tour the first night we arrived and pointed out the wildlife. Debbie's breakfasts were AMAZING. We needed to leave before sunrise to go hiking the first morning we were there and she graciously made us breakfast to pack the night before and set the coffee on a timer for the morning! They both were super knowledgeable and insightful about the area. We highly recommend and hope to come back in the future! Thank you, Deb and Rick for having us!

What a beautiful lodge! The owners and gracious hosts, Debbie and Rick, made us feel at home. Amid the cautious openings of inns/lodges/hotels/motels in Maine, every precaution was taken to keep the guests safe, but welcome. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable, with a great view of the lake and Mt. Katahdin. The lodge offers free use of their kayaks and canoes, plus a bonus late afternoon ride in their pontoon to observe the eagles that nest on the islands in the lake. The breakfast was delicious and satisfying. I would definitely return when a chance arises!
