About Melissa Osborne

We are life long Mainers growing up on the coast in Bucksport, Maine. I attended school at the University of New England, and went on to graduate school at the University of Maine in Orono. I work as a scientist at The Jackson Lab in Bar Harbor, and my husband works as a builder in the Bucksport area. We share our home with our two St. Bernards, and one Newfoundland. We are adventurists and we love the outdoors and in particular the fun that Northern Maine has to offer.

Melissa Osborne purchased this lodge in 2001

Why Melissa Osborne chose Maine Highlands

Our family would often summer at Jo-Mary Lake Campground, this is where we fell in love with the Millinocket Region. In 2001, the opportunity to purchase Ambajejus Lodge came along and we jumped on it. It has been a special place for making memories for our family. My husband and I are avid hikers and we were married at Pamola Peak on Mt. Katahdin in 2004. We continue to hike all over Baxter State Park every year. The lodge held a special place in my dad's heart, it was his pride and joy. He loved to have guests up to camp, and there was always room for many. He passed away in September of 2013, but he always wanted to be at camp. He loved to take our guests on a party boat tour of Ambajejus Lake. Those who come here to play, to relax and to unwind should know they will always have a kindred spirit watching over them. We have had weddings, family reunions, receptions, Thanksgivings, Christmases and Easters all at camp and each one is a special memory. The lake takes hold of your soul and brings you peace, and we have found it a great comfort throughout our lives.

What makes this lodge unique

One of the nicest things about this property is the vast amount of space both inside and out it has to offer. We have had as many as 14 people staying at camp with us and there is never a time when it felt crowded. It offers privacy both inside and out, and there is nothing finer than getting up before everyone else and grabbing a cup of coffee and sitting on the dock.

Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed here from Jan 26-30 and had a great time. From the start Melissa answered all of our questions about the property and area.

The house is amazing and huge, right on the lake and snowmobile access right from the driveway. We rode over 300 miles!

Melissa and Michael were super attentive the entire time and were very helpful with our dog, Bridgette. Couldn't have asked for a better location and place to stay. We will be back to ride and stay here. Thank you for everything Melissa and Michael!! :)

Snowmobile trip

  • 5 of 5

8 of us spent the weekend snowmobiling and absolutely loved this place. Tons of parking, great views, and the house was perfect. Very clean, plenty of space, and very comfortable. We can't wait to go back. A+ in every way.

This home was beautiful, roomy and clean. A wonderful place to spend some quiet time.

  • 5 of 5

From our first steps in to this large, clean and beautiful "camp" we were excited. The layout was perfect for our group with a split design and both quiet secluded and central entertainment based areas for us to congregate. Sitting in the front living room looking over the beautiful lake is relaxing and peaceful. The great room is large enough for all of us to gather in.

What a great location for enjoying all the seasons of Maine. Just down the road from Mt Katahdin, close to many lakes and ponds and lots of chances for hiking, walking, boating, snowmobiling, ice fishing, etc...

We would highly recommend this quiet, clean, roomy and peaceful "home away from home".

Loved our stay....so peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The place was big. The pictures on line do not do the property justice. We have rented many houses on home away and this house was very well stocked with towels,t.p. Soap and other essentials. It was a pleasure having all that. The biggest plus is the yard and the view. We would rent there again......

Ambajejus Lodge is located 10 miles from the Togue Pond Gate (Southern Entrance) to Baxter State Park. Baxter State Park harbors Maine's tallest peak - Mount Katahdin. It also has numerous trails for day hiking as well. We have been up every trail in the South Basin of Katahdin and several of the surrounding peaks. There is a hike for every level. We are also located near Katahdin Air, taking people on daily scenic flights around the region. Also nearby is Penobscot Adventures offering river rafting tours. Ambajejus Lake is among the Pemadumcook Chain Lakes and is home to some great game fish. In addition, we are located in moose hunting zone 10, with plenty of room for your entire hunting party. If you are into snowmobiling or ATV riding, ITS 85 is located directly across the road from the lodge. The Northern Timber Cruisers Club House is also approximately 7 miles from the lodge, and this group maintains the Katahdin Region Multi-Use trail system, the first of its kind in the state!
