Five Oaks is the result of a 10-year dream and a couple’s desire for their perfect wilderness retreat.  We combined natural beauty, basic sound construction principles and the love of the out- doors into our wilderness lodge and secluded retreat.  We are off the grid yet live with the conveniences of modern day. As a part of our guests’ stay with us, we would be glad to add “Solar Power 101” to the tour.

            We used smart construction for the varied and often harsh climate in the western mountains of this area include: a foundation using reinforced insulated foam blocks – moderate cost but top quality.

We used local natural spruce logs harvested from our surrounding land as the structure as well providing the desired rustic look and feel of the interior. The exterior construction is again live edge lumber harvested and sawn from our land here in Maine and applied by Larry and some very talented friends who are experienced in natural building techniques.

We use the sun to power our water pump and other electrical needs. Being off the grid and using wood for our primary heat gives us a sense of independence and helping the environment in a small way.

            We love to show off the melding of craft, engineering, and imagination in this unique place set along the north shore of Long Pond; where we continue to put our ideas and imagination to work in a tangible monument to our love of wood, stone, and weather while living in tune with nature’s many wonders.

The Five Oaks Lodge in Jackman, ME is up and running and we are ready to rent the whole lodge or a room.  The lodge sleeps up to 12 people.  This is a part time venture as we are running river trips so we will work with you to accommodate your needs.

The lodge is located on the north shore of Long Pond with 100’s of feet of shoreline a mountain view to the south and excellent cell coverage.  This is an elegant rustic lodge with hot showers, flush toilets, full kitchen and lots of atmosphere.  This is a year round place; in spring for fishing and paddling, summer for paddling and lawn games, fall for hunting and winter for snowmobile, snowshoe, or cross country ski.  Of course it offers just a great get-away destination to enjoy wildlife, a walk along the beach or a good book as you relax on the 30’ screened porch complete with the fireplace crackling beside you
