I spent the night of October 3, 2001 in Room 12 of the Overlook Motel in Eagle Lake, Maine. When I travel alone, I donít look for much in a motel other than price and location. I was in the area doing some research for my Aroostook County sites, and chose the Overlook only because of its proximity to Soldier Pond.
What I found in the Overlook was one of the nicest motels Iíve ever stayed in, and for a fourth the price of many of them. The room was beautiful, clean, and pleasant. A patio at the rear offered a panoramic view of the lake.
The patio was equipped with a small table and two chairs. The room included a bar sink, a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. The queen-sized bed was comfortable.
The following year, on October 21, 2002, I spent another night at the Overlook, this time staying in Room 18, one of their doubles, as my nephew was with me. Again, I was not disappointed.
On June 7, my wife, nephew, and I stayed in Room 22, one of the two-bedroom apartments. While more utilitarian than plush, we were very happy with the accomodations.
I think Iíll try one of the lakeside cabins later this summer.
This is not a paid advertisement. Other than when I checked in and out, I do not know the owners, Phill and Sheila LeBoeuf; they have not asked me for my endorsement, nor have I told them that I was going to do this.
