Our Environmental Leadership Program

Maine family vacation green venu

The Alamoosook Lakeside Inn is proud to be recognized by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection as an Environmental Leader in the Hospitality Sector.

The Inn’s location on the shores of Alamoosook Lake allows our guests to enjoy nature at its best. We have crystal clear water, beautiful native pine trees and an astonishing array of wildlife.

Since we have no light pollution you can see more stars than you ever thought existed. Because we so value the natural assets of this area, the management and staff of the Inn are committed to minimizing our impact on the environment.
