Welcome to the Looney Bin, where “the stressed can rest”on Loon Pond, in the southern Maine town of Acton. Enjoy waking up to the beautiful sunrises and the call of the loon, and drink your coffee on one of the two full decks overlooking this small, pristine, quiet lake. After enjoying the day exploring the area, including Portland, 45 min away, or Boston 1 1/2hours, the beaches 30 min., the White Mountains 1 hour, or the many lakes close by, come back and enjoy a swim, and a dip in the hot tub.

The space
The Looney Bin has an open concept living, kitchen, and dining rooms on the first floor, along with a full bath with a giant claw foot tub, one bedroom with a queen bed, and a multipurpose room with a day bed that sleeps two.
Upstairs there is a bonus living room with an office space, as well as a king bedroom with bathroom, and laundry room, with deck looking over the lake, and another outside the bedroom.
Enjoy the outdoor amenities including a large yard, fire pit, picnic table, grill, access to the lake for swimming and boating, two kayaks, and use of the hot tub.

Acton, Maine, United States

This is our first year at the Looney Bin, but our neighbors have been very welcoming. Our co-host lives across the road. The property has a right of way to the lake where you can swim or put in the kayaks.
