Welcome to our home, Williams Pond Lodge, in Bucksport, Maine! As we fulfill our dream of operating an Eco-friendly Bed & Breakfast, we look forward to meeting new friends – and seeing more of our old friends – as we host guests in this sweet spot in beautiful Downeast Maine! We invite guests who wish to join us in our love of the natural world, respect for the interdependent web of life, and belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person.
We made our first trip to Maine back in 2001, and in 2002 we began searching for a property which we could develop into a Bed and Breakfast. We knew our business would also be our home, so we had to find a place where we would want to live and work that would also appeal to the sort of traveler which we would want to host. Maine’s natural beauty and friendly people had attracted us, and we were very excited as we planned a future where we could share that beauty and friendliness with others.
So here we are, feeling very lucky, living in beautiful, rural Bucksport – the perfect location for convenient day-tripping – on a beautiful pond with great hiking, canoeing and kayaking all around us -- in a wonderful old Maine camp which we have lovingly developed into a great place for you, our friends -- old and new -- to share with us on your joyful discovery of Maine!
We’re secluded, yet easy to find; and just a 15 minute drive from downtown Bucksport. Leave the pavement and follow our woods road for .7 mile as it winds through the forest, along the pond shore, then ends in our dooryard. We're only a half hour from Bangor and Bangor International Airport.
Bucksport and its beautiful Penobscot River waterfront are neighbors to historic Fort Knox and the spectacular new Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory. Bucksport is located at the head of Penobscot Bay, at the top of the Blue Hill Peninsula; an easy drive to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Castine, Stonington, Searsport, Belfast and Camden.
You are invited to stay in our home and experience the peaceful relaxation of living in the woods, on the pond and off the grid. This is comfortable wilderness in Downeast Maine…we want you to create the vacation memories which will bring you back again…to visit your friends at Williams Pond Lodge!
