Rick and Debbie,

Kathleen and I fell in love with 5 Lakes Lodge and both of you after only a three night visit. The Lodge is absolutely beautiful; great décor, fantastic vistas; very peaceful and relaxing.

The breakfast's were delicious and filling setting us up for a day of doing whatever we chose to do.

Debbie is a wonderful, fun hostess and is full of local knowledge; she made us feel at home immediately.

Rick is a tremendous source of local knowledge, as well; we thoroughly enjoyed learning about the history of the area, as well as, about the great places to explore to see animals and beautiful scenery.

The pontoon boat ride was special, as was the ride to the Loose Moose pub for dinner.

Bald eagles, loons, lakes and Mt. Katahdin always looming when it was clear out - 5 Lakes Lodge is a very special place that should be on everyone's list to visit. You will not be disappointed.

We look forward to extending out stay there next time. Thank you Rick and Debbie for being such wonderful hosts and people.

My husband and I decided to take a trip to Maine snowmobiling in January 2015. We were lucky enough to get the phone number for 5 Lakes Lodge and we were able to talk to Rick and Debbie who were able to update us on the trail conditions and set us up in the lodge. Rick and Debbie have an amazing lodge and the room was very cozy (the bed was heavenly). The breakfasts were amazing! Rick and Debbie were very helpful with helping us with which trails were open/closed, where the best sights would be. They were also kind enough to help us when we had troubles on the trails (no trip is complete without a set back or two), thanks to Rick and Deb, the trip was saved.

IT WAS UNFORGETTABLE! Thank you so much for everything!

We stumbled across this gem and its marvelous hosts almost by accident. We arrived unexpectedly in Millinocket in late July, consulted our IPhone, looked at several places listed, and had just about given up--we are still thanking our lucky stars that we went that last mile. Its location is perfect, and Debbie's breakfasts matched anything we've had at five diamond resorts. Between the sunsets, the kayaks, Katahdin, and Rick's unfailing patience and his excellent guidance on where to go and what to do, we had the stay we'd dreamed of. We'll be back.

Greetings Rick and Debbie!

Wanted to thank you again for the hospitality and wonderful time we had at 5 Lakes two weeks ago. After our spectacular drive home through Maine, New Hampshire (Mt. Washington Auto Road was spectacular), Vermont and New York, we talked things over and wished we had spent more time with you and 5 Lakes. If we get back to Maine, you are certainly atop our accomodation list!!

5 Lakes location -- 5 stars

5 Lakes views -- 5 stars

5 Lakes hosts and hospitality -- 5 stars

5 Lakes accomodations and service -- 5 stars

And thanks again for the impromptu pontoon ride and your sharing of information about Baxter. We hope that great little dog made it home!!

We selected 5 lakes lodge, eagles nest, to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.  Little did we know when the week ended we would experience the best vacation ever.

Between the natural beauty of the area, the amazing high quality of the lodge and the exceptional hosts Rick and Deb the getaway will be something we soon won't forget.

We enjoyed a couple of boat rides viewing the amazing scenic lakes, hiked a number of trails in Baxter State Park, took a "fly and dine" scenic flight and so much more.  Don't miss the "fly and dine" if you get the chance.  One of the most memorable moments in our life.   Thanks to Jim at Katahdin Air and Libby's Camp for a very magical evening. 

One of our boat tours was provided by Rick and Deb.  We will never forget the eagle flying over our was amazing.

Again, if you are thinking of spending time in this area there is no better place to stay then at the 5 lakes lodge.  You won' be disappointed.

Rick and Debbie,


We had such a great relaxing time with you folks at 5 Lakes Lodge. Great accommodations, view (and the two of you really provided snow a couple of times) and superb breakfasts. We appreciated the hikes you sent us on; perfect for our shape and interests. We are looking forward to next summer for kayaking, Golden Road exploration, and further trip to Baxter, if we get up early enough for hikers' parking lot spaces.

 Congratulations! Both of you are knowledgeable, friendly, and know how to treat your guests as individual. 

                          Bless you both!

                       Jim and Linda L.

Reviewed the web site , the pictures looked great (as expected).

We went up as a group, 5 couples rented all the rooms for the weekend.We did not expect the pictures to do the place justice, it was even nicer than the pictures could make it out to be.

Rick and Deb top notch accommodations.

My husband and I spent our 30th anniversary at 5 Lakes Lodge. It was a special occasion and it turns out we pick a special place to celebrate it. We are Mainers and have always apprciated our state, but the spectacular view at 5 Lakes Lodge was a fresh reminder of Maine's natural beauty.

Host, Rick and Debbie, are special people. Friendly, hard working, creative Mainers who go the extra mile to make your visit comfortable, relaxing and as active as you choose.

You will not be disappointed. On the contrary, you will be overjoyed.

There are very few occasions when the expectations of vacationers are met because we all seem to demand too much. Staying with Rick and Debbie qualifies as the rare occasion when idealistic expectations have not only been met, but far exceeded.

The opening salvo was the tremendous view of Mt. Katahdin and it's surrounding neighbors along the terminus of the Appalacian Trail. There was the warm welcome to a truly first class lodge situated on a penninsula on the shores of a marvellouslly clean lake. Breakfasts were divine. The ammenities include kayaks and canoes; great swimming and views; and a ride in a beautiful pontoon boat to see local Bald Eagles, Loons, and Moose.

This native Maine couple exude the love of their land and surroundings and made us feel very much at home as they explained the history of their B&B site and the surrounding area.

If you want to get lost in tranquil peace and quiet, while surrounded by natural beauty and great hospitality, this IS the place. We liked it so much, we have booked another week at the end of September.

My husband and I decided we would take a trip to Maine and instead of booking lodging for a week we would just see where our journey took us. Our first few days we stayed in Bar Harbor, the coast and Acadia National Park were beautiful. We also explored many of the nearby towns, they were all very quaint and nice. After a few days though, we grew tired  of the "tourist scene". It was a bit crowded and since we both deal with a lot of people and traffic during our everyday life, we wanted some peace & quiet-so we headed North and since I was in Maine, I was determined to see a Moose!!

 Lucky for us we happened across  5 Lakes Lodge!  We knew this was exactly what we were looking for, a beautiful lodge, surrounded by a pristine lake,  away from the hustle and bustle. This was our first experience in a Bed & Breakfast and if we had to describe it in one word, it would be AMAZING! Our host's Rick & Debbie (and Amber) were absolutely  fabulous, we felt like we were staying with friends right from the minute we walked in the door. One of the best part's by far was Debbie's incredible breakfast (10 star's). Rick was so helpful in helping us plan our day trips, giving us detailed maps and suggestions on where to see wildlife and do some hiking (we did see a moose!). We only planned on staying two night's but could not resist staying an extra night :)  The lodge rooms have everything you need and more. The craftsmanship and details that went into making the lodge and all the rooms is astonishing. There were so many things we loved about the rooms that I can't pick only one favorite- we loved the Jacuzzi tub, the furnishings, the bed was incredible and the view is as beautiful as you can imagine. Rick & Debbie took us out on the boat to grab dinner across the lake at the Loose Moose, we had a blast!

If you're looking for a place to get away for some peace & quite, relaxation and to experience nature's beauty, 5 Lakes Lodge is where you will find it. There are plenty of places to eat in town as well as lots of things to do, including canoeing, kayaking, white water rafting, boating, fishing or just sitting by the lake relaxing. We will absolutely be back someday and plan to stay even longer next time!

Rick and Debbie, Thank you for having such a beautiful, relaxing, welcoming b&b. Paul usually doesn't like staying in b&bs, however he's talking about coming back to your place next year. Your accommodations were absolutely first class. You are given to hospitality! You made us feel welcome and comfortable the whole time we were with you. The room was so tastefully decorated and the bed was so comfortable. The food was scrumptious! We so enjoyed getting up early and sitting out by the lake while we had our morning coffee. It was a great way to start the day. Thank you for taking us out on the lake. It was one of the highlights of our stay in Millinocket. Paul and I travel a lot, so we stay in many hotels and resorts. We definitely think your b&b is one of the best places we've ever stayed. Be blessed and come see us at Restoration Ranch. Paul and Billie Kaye

Spending Valentine's Day weekend with Rick and Debbie at the lodge was like spending a weekend with family. They open their home to their guests and make everyone feel like they are family. From the beautiful guest rooms all with a view of Mount Katahdin,the Valentine chocolates on the bed, to the appetizers and nightly chats by the fire and the homecooked breakfasts in the morning Rick and Debbie go all out to ensure your stay is relaxing and enjoyable.  Rick and his crew of snowmobile trail groomers do an excellent job of making their trails the best they can be so that everyone gets to enjoy the beauty of the region. Thank you Rick and Debbie for the experience and the hospitality. We definitely will be back.
