Chesuncook Lake House was destroyed by fire this morning. Damn. My last visit was about 30 years ago.

My understanding is that it caught fire around 1:30 AM Saturday morning and it took a couple hours for someone to get into cell range to call for fire suppression. From the photos I’ve seen, not much is left. Sad end to a piece of history. Hopefully it was an accident, and not arson.

So sad. A lot of history there, and such a nice family. I’ve been in a bunch of times this winter and was planning a stop after caucmagomoc on Saturday, but heard the news in the morning before we left.

Heard on Maine Public Radio last night that they are planning to rebuild. Good news!
