Enjoy amazing wildlife at Attean Lake Lodge


Summer Vacation in MaineThe area is of interest for those whose hobby is botany, geology, bird study or other form of nature study. Almost everyone enjoys viewing wildlife, whether it be a chipmunk scampering across your porch in search of food or a huge bull moose feeding at one of the lakes' tributaries.

Many of our guests enjoy taking one of our picnic lunches and hiking to remote ponds where we keep canoes under lock and key for your own private enjoyment. Along any of these remote trails it is possible to see many different species of wildlife and countless varieties of birds.

Another favorite day trip is canoeing the peaceful Moose River where the moose and deer love to come and cool off with a swim or have a drink of water. On your way to and from our island you will likely spot loons, our lake is home to many nesting pairs and it is a great joy to listen to their cry as they call to each other during the night.

For your added enjoyment we have hung humming bird feeders on each of our cottage's porch. Our housekeepers make sure they are refilled as needed.

    Friends at Attean,
    "We just want to tell you how grateful we are that we found your "Unique Retreat" I must confess that being a city girl, I was somewhat nervous with the idea of a vacation in the Maine woods, how pleasantly surprised I was! Your attention to every detail was evident from the start, our cabin was luxurious and the food is outstanding. Our kids can't wait for us to take them back next summer."

    Attean Lake Lodge,
    When I tell people about my family's vacation last summer, I get one of two response: either "Log cabins, it must be wonderful!" or "No electricity, it must be boring!" They're both right. Attean Lake Lodge isn't for everyone, but for people who want to enjoy unspoiled nature without the hassles of camping, it's paradise. - read more
