"Soul Food"

Sit back, close your eyes and let your mind wander. . .

Smell the pine trees. Hear the waves gently lapping the sandy shore, and the cry of a nearby loon.

It's amazing how great life can be when mixed with a little fresh water and incredible scenery!

That's what our bed and breakfast lodge is all about.

Comfort. Natural Beauty. Fresh mountain air.

Time to sit. Time to ponder. Time to rediscover nature, your loved ones, yourself.

Our guests count the days until they can return. They find a sense of well being here. It's Authentic. Natural. Pristine.

It's Maine, The Way Life Should Be.

Fed by the mighty Penobscot River, the Pemadumcook Chain of Lakes is a recreational wonderland. These five lakes, Pemadumcook, Ambajejus, Elbow, North Twin and South Twin, cover over 18,000 acres with 120 miles of shoreline.

Not an avid outdoor enthusiast? You'll still love 5 Lakes Lodge bed and breakfast.

Go for a leisurely walk. Soak in the comfort of your own private Jacuzzi tub. Take a sauna. Go for a swim. Grab a good book, a glass of wine, your partner. Curl up next to the fireplace or claim one of our lakeside Adirondacks. Lie in the sun on our beach. Drink in the view. Recharge your batteries.

Honeymoons and Romantic Getaways

Our luxurious bed and breakfast offers couples the romantic setting and spacious rooms you would expect for a fantastic and memorable getaway.

Your hosts, Rick & Debbie LeVasseur, are committed to making your stay one that you won't forget. The details are important to us; they are what make your stay, and our role, unique!

First, we want to create a special environment by combining luxury with nature.

Second, we want the atmosphere to be peaceful and romantic, and the food plentiful and delicious.

Finally, we want our guests to feel pampered, to whisk you away from the rigors of your daily life.

Whether you're on your honeymoon, celebrating your anniversary or just escaping for a few days, we have a vacation getaway package that will fulfill your every need.

Natural Beauty

On his first visit to Mt. Katahdin in 1846, Henry David Thoreau wrote, "It's difficult to conceive of a region uninhabited by man. We habitually presume his presence and influence everywhere . . . But here not even the surface had been scarred by man, but it was a specimen of what God saw fit to make this world."

Not much has changed in the past 160 years.

Simply put, the Katahdin Region is a very special place. Mother Nature has blessed us with an abundance of natural beauty; crystal clear lakes, lush forests, magnificent mountains and powerful rivers.

Small communities. Friendly people. Clean environment. No traffic. No crowds. No rat race. Abundant wildlife. Endless recreational opportunities.

What more could you ask for?

Remote feeling, Yet convenient

5 Lakes Lodge Bed and Breakfast is located on what we refer to as, "the other coast of Maine" - the boundary of the largest undeveloped wilderness area east of the Mississippi.

Yet, we're conveniently located just 20 miles from I-95 (exit 244), 75 miles from Bangor, two hours from Bar Harbor, and an easy five hour drive from Boston. Millinocket Airport, with a 5,000 ft. runway, is 8 miles away.

And Yes, we have free WiFi throughout the Lodge and most cell phone carriers have service here.
