Our lodge is located in the north woods of Maine, as you know. You’ll be tempted to follow Google’s directions right to our door, however, sometimes, Google doesn’t always know that we live in the woods. Please follow the directions below….
Once you reach Patten, Maine, take a left at Craig’s Clam Shop on Rt. 159. Travel about 10 miles until you cross a bridge over looking lower Shin Pond. Our summer driveway is located AFTER you reach Shin Pond Village. About 1/4 mile beyond the village, you’ll see our sign on the right side of the road. Turn down this road and you’ll reach the lodge after 1/2 mile down a dirt driveway. The road is shared with a private residence and also an ATV trail, so please drive with caution. Our winter driveway is on the right just after the bridge before all of the red buildings making up Shin Pond Village.
A one of a kind waterfront meal service is offered Wednesday-Sunday evenings in our main lodge. If you will be with us on a Monday or Tuesday night, please plan accordingly. There are several great options for dining in Patten. Please do be in touch prior to your trip to let us know if you are interested in eating with us! We are happy to prepare it “To-Go” for you if you prefer.
Breakfast is available 7 days/week and should be pre-ordered at the time you check in. We offer “To Go” breakfast at 7:30 am or dine-in breakfast at 8 o’clock. We’ll be sure you are fed if you let us know you’d like to be!
Bagged Lunches are available with advance notice. Please let us know ahead of time if you’d like a lunch to take with you! The cost is $15 and will include a large sandwich, chips or trail mix, fruit and a sweet treat.
Gluten Free? Vegan? Lactose Intolerant? Or maybe all three?! We are happy to make sure you can eat what you want to eat while you’re with us! Our menu is limited and options will be chef’s choice, but as long as we know, we are happy to cater to you!

Choose from one of four Private Cabins sleeping 2-8 people. All are equipped with full baths, propane or wood heat, and cooking facilities – open year round. Our private cabins are Pet Friendly, allowing you the opportunity to relax and enjoy the wilderness of northern Maine along with your furry friend.
Our cabins do NOT have wifi. We believe that everyday life comes with enough social media and news that it’s nice to have the opportunity for our guests to truly disconnect with technology and reconnect with nature. If you just can’t stay away, you are welcome to come inside the lodge at anytime where you will have access to wifi.
Our main lodge offers five private Guest Suites, and a lounging and dining area overlooking the water.
You’ll wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee and baked goods in the oven. Breakfast will await you downstairs to fuel your adventure for the day.
