WHAT TO DO AND WHERE TO GO



THE AREA

The Bellmard is located within the Quoddy Loop Region of Washington County and is a two-hour drive northeast of Bangor either by Route 9 or Route 6.

We are located on Route 1 and perfect for cruising north by motorcycles.

We not only have an enormous lake system, we also are only an hour from Maine�s beautiful coast.

Our lakes are abundant with fish and and the fishing is excellent in both open water and ice fishing seasons.

The Canadian Border at Calais is only 22 miles but now you do need a passport to cross over.
