Log House amenities: Vacations are special in your well-designed, cozy log house on almost two private acres of lawn and woods. The spacious Kiwi Lodge kitchen has every appliance; 2 blenders, 2 coffee makers, mixer, waffle iron, toaster, microwave, full range of cookware. Lots of pantry items - flour, sugar, oil, rice, condiments, many spices, tea, coffee - for your convenience. There is a herb garden to the right of the main entrance to enhance home-cooked meals. The long solid wood hand-made dining table overlooks the lake, easily seats 8 guests.

On upper level, there is one king bed room, the other has a queen and a full bed and there's a full bathroom on this level too. The third bedroom with double/twin bunk bed and a family room are on the garden level. All beds are Maine artisan-made with top-of-the-line mattresses, quality bedding.

The open plan main level has a second full bathroom as well as living room and kitchen with a large dining area overlooking the lake.

On the garden level, beyond the sliding doors to the lawn are the hot tub, volleyball/badminton net, pickle ball, horseshoes, croquet, 55' dock and swim raft anchored in lake. Our fleet currently includes a paddleboat, large canoe and two individual hard-sided kayaks. Life jackets in all sizes are in the bin on the garden level patio, right behind the Mexican style hammock.

Living room and family room have large, flat screen TVs; Internet/WiFi, cable, Roku, X-Box Kinect, Wii (bring your own games), free calls in US from landline ‘phone. There are many board games, movies, books, CD player.

Available for your use are washer, dryer, vacuum cleaner, hand vacuum; cleaning supplies, dishwasher soap, and generous initial supplies of paper goods.

Linens and towels are supplied. Please bring your own swim/hot tub towels.

On the deck are a gas/charcoal grill, picnic table and Adirondack chairs.

Local Area: Kiwi Lodge is on a small, secret lake in Western Maine; a few minutes from the charming university town of Farmington: shopping, restaurants, movies, golf courses, wonderful hiking, and great lobster, of course! We provide lots of recommendations for what to do, where to go, where to eat. Take one of the easy day trips to the delectable restaurants of Portland, plus lighthouses, observatory; outlet shopping in Freeport; hiking up Bald Mountain (hike is 3.5 miles R/T) near Rangeley, and so many other hikes including a short, super-easy walk in the woods, half an hour away, manageable for even small children; a boat trip on Moosehead Lake in Greenville: Western Maine opportunities for recreation are endless. Drive further north at dawn or dusk to see deer or moose; once we saw a small bear cross the road.

The lake at Kiwi Lodge: You will hear loons, ducks, bullfrogs (in June especially); you may see beavers, muskrats (usually swimming across the lake at dusk) and turtles; bald eagles often hover. The fish come so daringly close to the lake edge, their dorsal fins are above water. Guests fish off the end of the dock. Birds wake early; porcupines stroll the roads at midnight.

Contact us; booking now for a wonderful Maine fall season in 2017.

The property is almost two acres; the house is surrounded by a wide lawn on all sides that slopes gradually towards more than 100 feet of lakefront. There are no neighbors on one side, and a thick screen of pines, birch, oak, ash, maple and other trees give complete privacy on the other side. Lake is in front, and another screen of trees is between lawn and road. The new 55 foot dock is four feet wide, opening out to an octagonal area that has space for seating while you are surrounded by water. This is a green oasis in summer; in fall the colors of the leaves are glorious, a wall of brilliant yellow, red, scarlet, spreading up the hills from the lake.
