Delicious cuisine in a comfortable atmosphere



Mountain size appetites are expected here at Attean. After a day of hiking, canoeing or kayaking, you will enjoy your meals in our spacious window-filled dining room at your own private table, or take in the crisp, clean Maine air and breathtaking views from our open-air dining porch.

Your day begins with a hearty breakfast. We have a full menu, including eggs as you like them, different muffins or pastries each morning and varied omelets or pancakes. For those with lighter appetites, we offer fresh fruit and homemade bread for toast. There is plenty of hot coffee to get you started and hot coffee or tea on hand throughout the day in the dining room if you choose to stay close to "home".

We provide a  picnic lunch to take with you for the day.  Whether you choose to relax on your porch or explore the surrounding area, it will be a welcome treat with hearty sandwiches, fresh fruit and fresh baked cookies.

At the end of your day relax and enjoy casual dining with friends or family. Our menu changes daily and features house specialties such as tender steaks, fresh fish, Maine Lobster and something for the children to enjoy. Dessert is a must - choose from homemade fresh berry pies, cake, cheesecakes and Sundaes made with our own Attean Chocolate Sauce. We will also make special occasion cakes upon request and gladly accommodate vegetarians' likes as well.

On Wednesday and Sunday nights we hold sunset cookouts offering smoked ribs and barbeque chicken as well as the traditional hamburgers, hot dogs and, of course,  salads and desserts. Cookouts provide a great opportunity for guests to mingle and enjoy one another's company.

In our gardens we grow many of the herbs and vegetables you will find in your meals. We also source local and organic produce as much as possible.

    Friends at Attean,
    "We just want to tell you how grateful we are that we found your "Unique Retreat" I must confess that being a city girl, I was somewhat nervous with the idea of a vacation in the Maine woods, how pleasantly surprised I was! Your attention to every detail was evident from the start, our cabin was luxurious and the food is outstanding. Our kids can't wait for us to take them back next summer."

    Attean Lake Lodge,
    When I tell people about my family's vacation last summer, I get one of two response: either "Log cabins, it must be wonderful!" or "No electricity, it must be boring!" They're both right. Attean Lake Lodge isn't for everyone, but for people who want to enjoy unspoiled nature without the hassles of camping, it's paradise. - read more
