When I exited my car I felt like I was in a secret, private, meditative place. The only sound I heard was loons calling on the lake. The sunset was a sedative. The lodge was beautifully appointed, spacious, immaculate and extremely comfortable. The cool fresh...More

Very little boat traffic and unbelievable views. Kezar is from another time and you feel as if you are in another realm. It might have to do with Stephen King owning a lot of the real estate or the lack of jet skis. This place...More

A perfect lake. Big enough but not too big. Mountain views, sunsets, warm water for swimming, and many covers for fishing. Also the Center Lovell cafe with gourmet food and wifi in the mountains of western maine. You just can't beat it.

We used the town beach. It is clean, uncrowded, friendly, and comfortable. Bring a beach chair so you can sit on it in the very clear water and enjoy the view.

We took a day trip from North Conway, NH to visit friends who have a house on the lake. Beautiful lake with plenty of activities but the surrounding scenery is fantastic. I don't know what public amenities there are but we had a great day!
