Best New England lodging to hear call of the loon

Jump to last reply

We want to get away next Thursday-Sunday somewhere in new england so it's not a terribly long drive. After looking for ocean locations I have found rates this year seem to have gone nuts. What used to be $150 -200 in season is now $250-300.

So now I am thinking how much I love hearing loons, the few times I have experienced the sounds have left me longing for their calls. Anyone have suggestions for a peaceful and beautiful lake with loons that has lodging that is comfortable and not too rustic? In my research I am coming up short. My husband and I are exhausted from too much work and too much care taking and want to go and have it be easy to settle in and feel a bit pampered. I won't relax so much if my space is run down, dirty and not well cared for.

Last year in one of my posts, someone told me about some amazing sounding lakes and lodges in the Adirondack mountain but they were around $400 a night which is out of the question. I am thinking Maine, NH, VT.

If you know where I can hear the lapping of the water and the sounds of loons in a lovely spot, I would be grateful. I also don't want a family oriented place, looking for some quiet.
