Our main lodge, the "Norway House," was built in 1884. It and
five guest cabins are attractively strewn along the eight acre peninsula
known as Norway Point. Each cabin is privately nestled in its own picturesque
location along the waterfront within a short walking distance from the
main lodge and its dining room.
If you are
seeking complete privacy and isolation, then you will probably prefer
to stay in one of our two cabins located on their own separate island
on the lake. Only five minutes by water from the lodge, the cabins on
Chain and Big Islands offer housekeeping options for those who wish to
set their own pace.
of our cabins are rustic, yet comfortably furnished. Each cabin offers
a private and comfortable shelter with beds, blankets and furniture, and
a fine porch to enjoy a waterfront view of the lake. In the traditional
north woods manner, heat is supplied by iron stoves, and the wood and
kindling supply is refreshed daily. Propane gas lights, cold running water,
and clean portable flushes round out a dream log cabin in the Maine woods.
Private flush toilets and hot showers are kept immaculately clean daily
in the centrally located bath house.
of the cabins on the mainland are set up for the American Plan (see Rates & Reservations), where all
home cooked meals are served in our lodge dining room. Nancy's excellent
cooking is second to none, and some of her recipes have been featured
in a Maine recipe book entitled "In The Maine Woods"
by Mary Arlen (copies are available in our camp store).
