Evening on Great Pond, one of the Belgrade Lakes

Among the Lakes Bed & Breakfast is located in the heart of the lakes region with easy access to all seven of the beautiful Belgrade Lakes including East, North, Great, Long, Snow (Messalonskee), Salmon, and McGrath Ponds.

Our Region

The Belgrade Lakes region has long been famous as a retreat for exhausted professionals and celebrities. Elizabeth Arden invited her guests to a nearby estate where they dined on organic produce and walked the scenic landscape.

For more than a century, writers and artists have flocked to the area. The results of their visits have contributed great works of art to our culture. From E.B. White, who wrote Stuart Little, to Ernest Thompson of "On Golden Pond" fame, the dramatic backdrop of pristine lakes, serene waterways, and some of the most glorious hardwood forests on the East Coast inspires all who come to experience it.

Lakeside in the fall

Boating, water sports, fishing, antiquing, shopping, musical performances and cultural events are some of the activities available in the region. The Maine International Film Festival in Waterville, Maine, attracts people from around the globe every summer. Free concerts at the New England Music Camp in Sidney, Maine, are held outdoors in their beautiful Bowl-In-The-Pines on weekends. Some of the finest art can be found in Maine museums and the Colby College Museum of Art is no exception.

The US Postal Mailboat, with Captain Norm at the helm, delivers mail to lakeside residents, together with many stories of the lake inhabitants, on one of the last two mailboats in the country. It is a great opportunity to experience Great Pond and cruise right up to the docks’ mailboxes.

The championship Belgrade Lakes Golf Club is rated five stars and listed as one of the best public golf courses to play in the United States by Golf Digest. The first tee is a ten minute drive from our door.

When visiting our Bed & Breakfast, you will understand why this area has been the destination for professionals for more than a century.
