Welcome to the Lodge!

Maine Island Lodge is a unique destination located on Gay Island in Muscongus Bay. Technically in South Cushing, our dock on the mainland is in Friendship, Maine. The lodge can accommodate 12 to 24 guests comfortably, while the 6 tent platforms allow for an even larger group.  This “off-the-grid” island lodge comes complete with bedding, hot showers, and significant shore frontage for exploring.  It is an exceptional place to connect, relax, and explore.
