COVID 19 UPDATE
We have missed everyone here at the Pressey House and are looking forward to welcoming everyone back for another great summer on Messalonskee Lake. Starting June 1, we will be taking reservations for Maine residents. We are taking every precaution to ensure our guest's safety and well being. Our 5 rooms have private entrances and 4 of them have kitchens so that guests can prepare their own meals. Starting July 1, we will be welcoming back our out of state guests. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us as we are working with guests to make your stay with us this year just as wonderful as it has been in the past.
