We first visited Maine in 2001, and we returned in 2002 to search for a home that we could develop into a Bed and Breakfast. We knew our business would also be our home, so we needed to find a place that we’d want to live and work in, which would also appeal to the kind of travelers we wanted to host.

Maine’s natural beauty and friendly people attracted us to the area, and we were very excited as we planned to share that beauty and friendliness with others.

So now we live in beautiful, rural Bucksport – the perfect place for convenient day-tripping – on a lovely pond with great hiking, canoeing and kayaking all around us. We’ve developed Williams Pond Lodge into a great place for you, our friends – old and new – to share with us on your next visit to Maine!

Our Down East Bed and Breakfast is private but easy to find, just fifteen minutes by car from downtown Bucksport. Leave the pavement and follow our woods road for a little over a half-mile as it winds through the forest, along the pond shore, then ends in our front yard. We’re just a half hour from Bangor and Bangor International Airport.

Bucksport sits on the beautiful Penobscot River, close to historic Fort Knox and the spectacular new Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory. Penobscot Bay stretches out in front of Bucksport, wich sits on the top of the Blue Hill Peninsula – we’re also an easy drive to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Castine, Stonington, Searsport, Belfast and Camden.

Come stay in our home and experience the peaceful relaxation of living in the woods, on the pond and off the grid. This is comfortable wilderness in Downeast Maine… create new vacation memories which will bring you back again and again to visit your friends at Williams Pond Lodge!
