Lawn and grounds at Downeast Meeting and Banquet
Facilities border Moose Meadow Pond, a 35-acre Great Pond (lake)
that was created in the 1800s by innovative men to power a grist
mill and a saw mill. Today it provides a beautiful natural environment,
home to osprey, geese, otters, small- and largemouth bass, pickerel,
and other wildlife. Canoing and kayaking are enjoyed in summer,
while ice skating and cross-country skiing are popular in winter.
The lawn between the
building and the lake offers a convenient and picturesque location
for a tent large enough to accommodate well over 100 guests. It
is perfect for a wedding, family picnic, or corporate event. There's
also plenty of room for lawn games such as volleyball, badminton,
or even croquet!
There is plenty of
room for parking close to the building but away
from the lawn and lake. For large events, parking attendants can
be arranged. The lawn is accessible directly from the parking
lot (which is located on the opposite side of the building from
the lake) via a small paved driveway that circles around the building
to the lower level entrance.
