Space 200 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

LOON'S CALL LODGE: If you are considering a relaxing week away from the rat race, this is the spot.

If you seek night-life, sandy beaches, boardwalks, arcades, malls, and multiplex theatres, then this is NOT your destination.

If peace and quiet, nature, a rocky coast with lighthouses and crashing waves, quaint New England towns, lobsters and clams, a warm lake with great swimming and fishing, wildlife, cool nights, a crackling fire, paddling a kayak or canoe, a beautiful waterfront view, and a comfortable log cabin sounds like your cup of tea, then take a look. You just might like this place we call our home away from home!

About Chap Kistler - Owner of THE LODGE

Kim and I, along with Macauley, Cory, and Albert call this HOME. We live full time in Pennsylvania, but Maine is our get away where we try to spend as much time as possible once the kids get out of school.

With 2 out of our 3 kids in college, we don't get to Loon's Call Lodge as often as we'd like. Our loss is your gain!

Chap Kistler - Owner of THE LODGE purchased this house in 2001

Why Chap Kistler - Owner of THE LODGE chose Newcastle

This is our Late-Spring, Summer, and Early-Fall retirement plan. Too cold from Nov-Apr, so see our listing in Surfside Beach, SC (#350095) which is our retirement option during the rest of the year.

What makes this house unique

Fishing, swimming, boating, breakfast at Moody's Diner, and relaxing top the list!

After that, we select from a thousand other things to do from shopping in Freeport (home of LL Bean) to trips to the ocean to watch the crashing waves and wild life.

Best of all are the several pairs of Bald Eagles that nest on the lake!

Lakefront Bliss

  • 5 of 5

Our time at The Lodge was the just what we needed: pure heaven. The weather was fantastic and the lake was warm. We enjoyed the house and all it has to offer. From early morning SUP to family dinners- our experience was magical. Thanks to Chap and Kim for another magical Maine summer vacation.

Excellent ten-day stay in coastal Maine

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and another couple spent a wonderful week in the Lodge...wife and I had been in the area two years before and served as guides...Lodge is perfect and huge and very clean. Pat, the cleaning lady kindly provided us with a vase of flowers from her garden and a wonderful home-baked blueberry loaf cake...traveled to nearby Maine Prison store, featuring inmate woodwork at very reasonable prices...also, Morse's Sauerkraut retail store for their weekend brunch, featuring one of the best hash we've ever had. Dined in Damarascotta at Crissy's for terrific breakfasts and King Eider for dinner and lunch and always had oysters on half-shell...oysters in this region of the country are the best...clean, tender, opened so that liquor remains in shell and always on ice. Also had our share of lobsters...Chap, the owner was wonderful and agreed that my wife and I could stay an additional three days to avoid crowds during the Papal visit in Philadelphia for an additional fee. All told, it was a great trip to Maine and wife and I are already thinking about returning to the Lodge in two years. As noted in previous review, pictures don't do this property justice. It's terrific!

Best Of Maine

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, in great shape, with high quality furniture, rugs, etc. The experience is, shall we say, above average for rental homes in this area. The owner is professional and responsive. The pictures do not capture the quality of the property.

All That You Can Imagine & More...

  • 5 of 5

The Lodge is a beautiful, peaceful place to vacation. The house has everything that you could want for your pleasure and convenience, from a wonderful kitchen and amazing great room to a screened porch and two docks to launch a kayak or canoe, or just sit and take in the beauty of the lake with its loon, great blue heron, eagle, and shimmering light. We used the travel and trail books in the house to explore the area beyond the lake. The wonderful town of Damariscotta with its great food and book store is minutes away, and there are many trails and hikes nearby to explore the rivers, ponds, and harbors in the region. Where else can you readily kayak on a lake AND walk the coastal shoreline, all within thirty minutes of one another?! We look forward to returning...

Beautiful Damariscotta vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Lodge at Lake Damariscotta. The log home is beautiful and has everything that you would need. The lake is gorgeous and so serene. Hardly anyone was boating all week so we felt like we had the whole huge lake to ourselves! The accommodations were great and it was so nice to have our own dock and the lake trampoline. The kids loved the kayaks too. The little town of Damariscotta is so quaint and we enjoyed the biking in the area too.

Beautiful home on a beautiful lake. Great location to relax or visit mid-coast Maine attractions.

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our second year renting this home for a family vacation with kids and grandkids. We had great weather and 'fully' utilized the 'owner' provided kayaks, dock, and water trampoline. The accommodations were super and the location was close to New Castle and Damariscotta for all our necessities. The fully furnished kitchen and large eating area (along with the outdoor Weber grill) made eating in easy when we chose to utilize them. Lots of options locally to enjoy dining out and visiting local brewmasters. Nothing beats a quiet day on the lake, or traveling around to visit lighthouses, hiking the rocky coast, shopping in quant villages, and eating lobster at a local lobsterman's coop. Midcoast Maine has it all and this home and it's lakeside location makes for an excellent retreat.
