ACTIVITIES - On a nice day
-Take a canoe ride up Winkumpaugh Stream. Still undeveloped, pristine and quiet,
the stream is home to lots of wildlife. Find it by heading Northwest around
Steres island. (Consult the chart near the wood stove)
-Sail to the lower lake
Water skiing is great physical activity. You'll need a driver and a spotter aged 12 or over in the boat. We recommend skiing in the early morning when the lake can be as smooth as glass.
Fishing is always fun whether you are 5 or 80. We have a resident warden on the lake so it is best to
purchase your license on line before your visit.
We have plenty of poles and nets, but you will need to bring your own worms.
Plan to end your day with a picnic supper. The old incinerator is great for boiling water for lobsters!
ACTIVITIES - On a rainy day
Visit Acadia National Park
The island offers hiking and walking trails that are fun rain or shine. For the very warm-blooded there is "Sand Beach" for a dip in the ocean. Does the temperature ever reach 60 degrees?
