Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday chalet in Swanville - Laughing Loon Lodge

Laughing Loon Lodge –Swan Lake, Maine

Perfect for ALL ages

Laughing Loon Lodge is a Maine vacation home with 3 bedrooms, loft, first floor and basement bedrooms. Loft has king size bed, first floor has a queen and basement has a full size and in the tv room has a queen size futon. We are nestled on the East shores of Swan Lake. Enjoy your morning coffee watching the sunrise or relax at sunset with a beverage listening to the laugh of the loons, or listen to your tunes piped to the outdoor speakers, all from the 10x28 ft deck overlooking Swan Lake. Enjoy the comforts of a modern year-round home with a sizeable, fully equipped kitchen and high-speed wireless internet.

Outside there is a unique Spanish style fireplace/grill, a fire pit, full sized gas grill, private mooring for your boat, a quaint paddle boat and an aluminum row boat.

Plenty of private parking, a sand beach for the kids to play. You will not want to leave!

Breathtaking views from all three levels. Bed and bath linens are provided, there is no road noise as it is located on the East side away from the road! Our very own grocery store known as the “Best by a Dam Site” is only 1.5 miles down the road and offers a terrific variety of fresh produce, grass/grain fed meat/pork/poultry, liquor, beer, wine, and a fantastic deli and their take-out menu is awesome!

Swan lake is located close to the coast, only 8 miles from Belfast and Rte 1, where there are great places for seafood, yes, that wonderful Maine lobster is available to you 24/7! Beautiful Belfast Bay offers Harbor cruises, and Camden is only 30 min away where you can go whale watching, take a schooner ride, shop and dine. You may also wish to take a day trip to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Rockland or Castine. You can shop all day along the coast then retreat back to your cozy and quiet lodge on Swan Lake, one of the cleanest lakes in Maine!

Kids and adults will love playing on the sand beach, jumping and swimming in the lake. Campfires, s’mores, and fishing galore!

If you are a fitness lover there is a treadmill, total gym, ab circle pro, along with an abdo-er chair! Or get out there and pedal your way on the lake in the paddle boat, or row row row your boat!!! Great exercise and terrific views!

Laughing Loon Lodge views are of the widest part of Swan Lake, over a mile across to the other side. While staying here you will not be roughing it, we want your vacation to be special, please give us the opportunity to spoil you and your family.

About DEANNA HESSERT

A Maine native! I grew up in Hampden and camped right here at Swan Lake since 1961. I left the state for 10 years, only to come back to raise my girls and be near my family, who consequently, live right next door .

I love what Swan Lake offers, the calm quiet mornings, the colorful evening sunsets and the loons laughing!

DEANNA HESSERT purchased this chalet in 2006

A Very Nice place, amazing views and the cabin

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this beautiful place to anyone who`s looking for a nice, relaxing vacation in the wonderful state of Maine! We loved it, kids loved it. The place is super clean, the welcome basket was a nice touch. What can i say, the place felt like home! Deanna was very welcoming and helpful and would respond on any requests or questions within minutes, if not seconds. The lake, the views, simply amazing. Too bad it was mid October and we didn`t get to enjoy the lake, but i am pretty sure, we will be back to the very same home next summer. Thanks Deanna! Will see you in August!

Relaxing lake house!

  • 5 of 5

Deanna is super friendly & helpful. The welcome basket was awesome! The house is comfortable & has great views! The grocery about a mile away has everything you could need. My kids ages 8, 6, 4 had a blast while my husband & I relaxed on the deck. The kids spent hours on the paddle boat & climbing the rocks looking for frogs. This is a place to unwind & relax.

5-star home on a beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful spot for vacationing....the home is very spacious, extremely comfortable and met all our needs right down to 2 rocking chairs! Deanna is a very gracious host leaving great treats (chocolate and coffee- as if the home and lake weren't enough :)) which were very much appreciated and such a nice welcome. No need to even leave the home but we do enjoy our outings....

My family and I love the area with Belfast 10-15 minutes away for some great meals- love Darby's. The cinema as well as the pedestrian walkway over the bay are other favorite attractions for us. If you like rides, there's a lighthouse with a spectacular view a little over an hour away past Camden.

I almost hate to give a review because I'm afraid next summer will be booked before I get a chance to book my next vacation! Thank you Deanna for opening your home to us!
