What's going on across the lake and throughout the coast.


Maine events & fall color, 2014

By: Jennifer Fey

As the fall color engulfs the state, scores of events, markets, faires, and classes kick off around the coast that will make your lakeside Maine vacation pop. We are big fans of spending every second on the lake -- but at some point, you and your loved ones will need to change it up in a day before settling back lakeside for the evening.

Check out these events -- we update them monthly -- and send us your pictures and feedback! If you provide an event writeup with pictures, we may post it here so others can plan on attending next year.


5 Tips for Making the Most of Your Lakeside vacation at Nightingale House

By: Nick Fey
  1. Keep an eye and ear out for the king and queen of the lake - the Loons. You will hear their extraordinary haunting call and see one or both of them bobbing around the island and diving for fish. Today I saw the Loon sitting on its nest, just off the island, so we have one or two chicks to look forward to seeing this year on the Pond.

  2. Washington is very lucky to have Sweet Season Farm and Cafe -- offering locally farmed produce, ice cream, and incredible dining. We particularly love going to brunch there. Say 'hi' to Virginia for us. They are just finishing building a farm shop which will open this season (2014). Looking forward to seeing more of their great selection of local meat and vegetables.
