About Loon Lodge and Pickford Cottage: “At ENS Associates, it has been a pleasure being involved with the renovations and interior details over the years, since the Wood Family purchased the historic, 100-year-old log building in 2006. In 2019 they annexed the Cottage up the hill, and keeping with the camp aesthetic atmosphere did a full renovation using faux metal ceilings, copper counter tops, wood blinds, paint colors, rugs and traditional window treatments. The basement garden level renovation in the main Lodge involved the addition of the Copper Tap function room, which is all about creating a warm and welcoming entry into the elegant rustic Rangeley experience. Just recently in the Great Room we recovered the hickory furniture with an updated camp pattern and new cushioning; new, locally built tables and lamps round out the seating group.” – Ellen Albrecht
