A hidden gem in a birch laden lakeside forest. . .”

"Visiting Lakewood is like going to your own custom designed retreat. Stay at the Inn and sleep like a baby while you go back in time. Comfy naturally cooled rooms, pastel and earth tones surround you. If you feel like seeing a show next door that is your prerogative. If not, dine slowly at the restaurant and feel the peace and quiet speak to you. . . 

Truly a little hidden gem in a birch laden lakeside forest in the heart of Maine's farming country. It's a place that is always on my Summer Favorite Day Trip List. . ."

“The perfect backdrop for a rejuvenating getaway. . .”

"Lakewood.  The name conjures up images of bygone days; days when actors such as Vincent Price, Humphrey Bogart, and Fay trod the boards at next-door Lakewood Theatre.  The Colony House Inn is the life of the Lakewood Theatre Colony. Its rich history -- inextricably tied with that of the theatre -- is the perfect backdrop for a rejuvenating getaway.  

You can explore nearby towns (lots to do close by!), or enjoy the serenity of the lake with a good book at hand.  With the theatre, golf course, tennis courts, and boating all within walking distance, there is never any lack of things to do.  The breakfasts are hearty and delicious, the rooms clean and comfortable, and the host is accommodating and friendly."

“Like stepping back in time. . .”

"We loved our stay at the Colony House Inn. It was like stepping back in time and yes it was like a retreat. Everything is right there. Beautiful Inn and service to stay in like your own home. A place to dine [next door], the food was very good and when we were finished we just walked across the way to the wonderful Lakewood Theater for a play we enjoyed so much. Hope to return this summer."

“Breakfast is outstanding!”

"We joined our daughter, who was staying at the inn this fall, for breakfast one morning.  Our breakfast was outstanding!  Bacon, scrambled eggs, and homemade pancakes with real blueberry-maple syrup from the organic farm next door.  We're thinking of taking a "stay-cation" there ourselves one weekend soon!"
