Secluded, log-sided cabin just 40 ft. from pristine lake shore. In addition to modern amenities, comes with lovely stone fireplace, private swimming dock, an enclosed outdoor shower with dressing room, a rowboat, canoe and loons to serenade you!

L'alloggio

The cabin was built in 1970 by Rob's father and grandparents when there was no Lake Drive or Christmas Lane; they brought the materials across the lake by boat and cleared the lot by hand to start. Then they built Lake Drive to make it easier. The mason who built the stone fireplace for them did so by hand, using stones he spent over a year searching for and finding one by one within 20 miles of the Guest Lodge; none were hewn, but used just as they were found. The Lodge was since renovated in 2013 and 2014, adding many improvements while carefully maintaining the cabin's original simplicity and charm. There are families who have been coming to the Guest Lodge since the 70's, with children who now return as adults with their families. The 81-acre lake, known by locals as 'Staples Pond,' was immediately dubbed Santa Claus Lake by Rob's father upon seeing an aerial view - it looks just like Santa with his pack on.
Whether your great love is hiking, biking, swimming, canoeing, antiquing, fishing, riding an antique steam train, renting a jet ski, or photographing the beautiful mountains, lakes and wildlife, the Franklin County area holds many interesting and fun things to see and do. Although many guests simply prefer to rest and enjoy the mesmerizing peace and quiet, wildlife and fishing or hiking right on this beautiful forest property, and only leave to go to Giffords' for some ice cream.

Accesso ospiti

You will have the whole cabin and property to yourself, private access to the lake with swimming dock, and use of the canoe, row boat and enclosed outdoor shower. (Note: outdoor shower is in use between Memorial day and Labor Day.)

Interazione con gli ospiti

We are only a phone call away if you have any questions or concerns. We also provide you with lots of information about the cabin and the surrounding area before you go, to help you plan your trip...and there is a big looseleaf notebook in the cabin, filled with brochures and info on area attractions.

Altre cose da evidenziare

There's a charcoal grill on the back porch. There is no cable service in Temple, Maine, but we have a DVD player and movies to watch, as well as bookshelves filled with books, and some games and puzzles. There is a printer/scanner/copier on the desk in the living room. The great room has a big, strong ceiling fan which is wonderful when the temperature rises, and keeps the heat circulating when the weather is cold as well. There is also an air-conditioner and an attic fan that helps keep the temperature down on those rare hot days in Maine, as well as two ceiling fans out on the back porch.
We are a seasonal property - open from Memorial Day through Thanksgiving and closed during the winter months. During the summer we rent only by the week (Saturday to Saturday), and in the fall we have a 3-night minimum.

We had an absolutely great stay at the Guest Lodge. I was exactly what we were looking for. Whether it was canoeing on the lake or hiking on the trails it was all very relaxing. The fall foliage was outstanding and I do not think we could have timed it any better. Rob and Beth have thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable. All the amenities that the Guest Lodge provided, added to a great week. Thank you for keeping the Guest Lodge pet friendly as our dog Nala enjoyed her stay also. This is truly a 5 star location and we look forward to a return trip in the future. Rob and Beth, Thank you for your hospitality. Kevin and Denise

We couldn't have been happier with our experience. The cabin and surrounding area was amazing - quiet, peaceful and relaxing. We wanted to get away from it all and was not disappointed. What it made it extra-special was that we could bring our dog, Jackson, who had a blast! Rob and Beth provided all we could need from toiletries to a large pot to steam our lobsters. We will definitely be coming back. Thanks for everything, Rob & Beth!

Rob and Beth - This was the most wonderful place we have ever stayed! It was the most relaxed I have felt in over 6 years. Beautiful home, spectacular location and unforgettable weekend. We could not have asked for me from a weekend getaway! You made us feel so welcomed; from the fresh flowers on the table to the wonderful instructions. My only regret is only staying two nights! We will indeed be back. With heartfelt appreciation and thanks - Kristen, Bill & Presley

Perfect stay on a perfect lakeside cabin in Maine. Rob and Beth thought of everything for our stay in a super well equipped cabin. Beautiful, quiet, and tranquil lake, yet having all the modern amenities in the cabin allows one to enjoy Maine without having to deal with those rustic camps and their drawbacks. We enjoyed canoeing and hiking every day and also waking up to the call of loons every morning on the lake. Would definitely stay again!

Our stay at the Guest Lodge was a dream. It was the perfect balance of being immersed in nature while still having all the creature comforts. We spent our days swimming, boating, fishing, reading and just simply being a family. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you, Rob and Beth for being wonderful and generous hosts!
