Our stay was very memorable and left us with a feeling that we had been someplace really unique and special, far, far away. We stayed one night in one of the three cabins, which was comfortable but also rustic with propane lamps, then took a 4 day canoe trip, and returned exhausted to the comfort of the Lake House and the incredible hospitality of innkeepers Patrice and Justin. Their attention to detail and the food they served was perfect. The conversation and personal connection with us added to the experience. They made us feel right at home, and as my son said, "They made use feel like we were at our house". What more can an innkeeper do?!

Recently stayed in a cabin. Our stay was excellent the area is far from awesome to look at. The lake was beautiful and the sight and sound of the loons was great. We stayed through a hunting guide D & Outfitters which had no affiliation with the establishment. Louis a and her husband Dave run a great place. The food (meals) they prepared for us every day were awesome and plentyful. Louis a had a plethora of knowledge about the area and was a pleasure to talk to. I would highly recommend them if anyone wanted a wilderness getaway.

This place is amazing and the service is fantastic. We visited for lunch while snowmobiling in March. Food was good home cooking and the owner/waitress was very pleasant. If your out snowmobiling in this area this place is a must.

The Chesuncook Lake house is far removed from the beaten path. REALLY far removed. Until fairly recently, you could only reasonably get there by float plane or boat – usually by canoe down the West Branch of the Penobscot River. Now, you can drive there in the summer in most vehicles if the weather is not too atrocious. It is easy in any AWD vehicle. And it is in a lovely spot, situated on the north end of the very long Chesuncook Lake, blessed with a gorgeous view of Mt. Katahdin and surrounded by the Maine/logging company version of wilderness – a truly wonderful place. The village is quiet, but cute. A few nice summer homes and a few year round residents. I think most come here to boat, fish, hunt, snowmobile and just generally get away from things for a bit or for longer. It seems like a good spot for all of that to me.

Dave and Luisa run the Inn and have for 13 years. Connections with them are not what you may be accustomed to. Their habits and the vagaries of their satellite internet connection generally mean that you don’t hear back right away. It can be days. But eventually, then seemed to come through and everything we had arranged worked out really well. We rented 3 canoes, a stove and two chairs for our 3 night trip down the Penobscot with a stop at Lobster Lake. Our stuff was waiting when and where it was supposed to be when arrived at the River. Pretty important when you are mustering four people all the way from Colorado! They were patient with my pestering.

Three nights later we checked in to the Inn and took 3 of the 4 rooms on the second floor. There are two bathrooms down the hall and the whole Inn creaks marvelously. I really liked the place. Lots of character and northern Maine woods memorabilia all over the place. Mr. Thoreau would have been comfortable had he come back through 10 years later after his 1853 visit. Beds were just OK. Bathrooms were spotless and clean (and pretty new). Nice breezes blowing through and wonderful views of the lake. The rate is kind of high, but it includes 3 meals and provisioning must be tough with Millinocket the closest town. The meals were nice, home cooked affairs. Nothing fancy, but we were generally happy. Killer pickled zucchinis! There are also 3 cabins on the large property which seem popular for a housekeeping set up. I didn’t see the inside, but they looked nice enough. All 3 were occupied while we were there.

I never met David, but Luisa seemed pretty nice. You sort of felt like you might be intruding a bit, but I thought she was pleasant. There is some weird internecine village battle going on out in Chesuncook that we caught a feint whiff of and which seems absolutely absurd. The Inn proprietors are evidently involved in some dispute with some others. I didn’t really understand and didn’t want to. It just all seemed so silly to me, particularly with a group of folks that have far more in common than not. In any event, you can and really should wander a short distance to check out the beautifully maintained and very old cemetery and the old church/meeting house. A visit to the General Store for homemade root beer and fudge is kind of an iconic stop over. They have such at the Inn, but it started at the store in the 1970’s and is very worth a visit.

A canoe trip down the Penobscot with kids and grandparents was really special for our family. Having the last night at the Inn kept all participants happy and the place really worked well for us. The folks at the Inn were helpful in assisting us with the logistical support and I think it is a place worth getting off the beaten path to visit.

We visited Chesuncook in late August/early September. Reaching the Village was not as difficult as I had expected it to be. The roads are not tarmaced but they aren't too bad. You could use a normal saloon car but I would recommend an SUV or 4x4.
We stayed in one of the cabins and it was very comfortable. I was expecting them to be a lot more 'rough and ready' but they were fully equiped with everything we needed to accommodate a family of four which included two small kids.
The owners were not around when we visited but their brother/brother in law was who made us feel very welcome. In fact, he and his friends invited us for dinner on my husband's 40th birthday (which included a freshly baked cake) which was over and above anything we would have expected and just showed how hospitable the family are.
We were genuinely sorry to have to leave. For anyone wanting to get away from it all or just to spent quality time with your family away from wifi/tv etc and enjoy stunning scenery, Chessuncook is the place to go.
