We are just a few miles from I95. We have a large circular driveway so you can stay connected. If we have more than one guest we have a lawn (depending on conditions) you can back onto. You will not be directly on the lake but are only a short walk away. We are within 1/2 mile from RR tracks and you will hear train. Train normally only runs a few times a day. Suggested Local Attractions:There are several campgrounds in town as well as a public dump station at the Shell station at 81 Elm St, Newport, Me. There are several gas stations and a Walmart within a few miles. Great Sea food Restaurant and Mexican Restaurant within a few miles.

    I only got a glimpse of the lake because it was raining buckets during my stay. Ralph came right out during the downpour, and got my rig situated and hooked up to electricity within a few minutes. He also loaned me a box of local information, amd told me to keep whatever interested me. I wish I could have stayed longer, but the next morning I went in search of sunshine. Ralph and his wife travel with their truck camper, so they have a lot of knowledge to share. I plan on coming back and learning from the pros! And having coffee on the lake, amd maybe a dessert. (Inside joke.)

    A beautiful, secluded, tranquil location right off the lake among trees with a nice sandy beach - lots of exciting new smells for pups! Ralph was a great, friendly, and helpful host, taking time to get me set up when I arrived - even in the pouring rain. Plenty of level locations to park, with easy electric access off the garage. I wish I could have stayed longer!

    Can't say enough about this lovely spot and our great hosts. A warm welcome, a wonderful tour of their lakeside property, and a most enjoyable time chatting with Ralph and Donna. Definitely one of our favourite BDW stays!

    Ralph and Donna are warm and gracious people. They came out to welcome us in the rain and help us get power and settle in for the evening. We had a delayed vehicle repair and so called them to stay another night. They showed us the lake and we chatted for the longest time. Super nice and very accommodating hosts.
