Q. Is Haley Pond a lake or a pond?
A. In name, it's a pond. Technically, it's a lake. While there is no universal standard for how large a pond may be, the various organizations that concern themselves with such matters generally cap the size of a pond somewhere between 5 and 20 acres. Haley Pond, at more than 160 acres, is by any definition a lake. However, in New England, and in Maine in particular, we have the peculiar habit of using the word "pond" when naming even fairly large bodies of water. Ergo, a lake called Haley Pond. We recently kayaked around the lake with a GPS device and found that if you hug the shore it's about 2.5 miles around.
Q. How is the swimming at the cabin?
A. We think it's pretty good and many of our guests have said they've enjoyed it. Haley Pond is a shallow lake with a gentle slope and very little boat traffic, almost none of which is motorized, all of which makes it very favorable for swimming. Like other lakes in the area, Haley Pond has a rocky bottom, so we recommend wearing appropriate footwear (Tevas, for example).
Q. Can I fish on Haley Pond?
A. Yes, there are fish to be found in Haley Pond (click here to view a report by the State of Maine), but you'll find much better fishing across the street in the much larger Rangeley Lake.
Q. Can I use a motor boat on Haley Pond?
A. Yes, boats are permitted on the lake and there is a public boat launch on Main Street. Note that motorized boats are limited to motors of 6 horsepower or less. Maine law requires a PFD for each person onboard any watercraft, and children 10 or younger must be wearing theirs.
Q. Is Haley Pond connected to Rangeley Lake?
A. While Haley Pond is an inlet of Rangeley Lake, the two are not connected by any means that a person or boat can transit. It is necessary to portage from one to the other.
Q. Are you located close to snowmobile and ATV trails?
A. Yes, the ITS snowmobile trail and the main ATV trail through Rangeley are both a short way down the street from our cabin.
