Sue and Neal Favreau bought the Log Cabin in 1979 from John Wiseman of Lewiston, Maine. This was Mr Wisemans summer home. His trophies still adorn the walls of the dining room. Sue, Neal and their sons, Matt and Adam York (ages 9 and 7 respectively at the time), moved into the Log Cabin, doubled the size of the building, and opened the Log Cabin Restaurant on March 13, 1980. For the next eight seasons, the 80 seat restaurant was very busy. Sue decided to take a break in 1988, and for the next four seasons, the 80 seat restaurant was leased to another individual.
In 1992, Sue and the crew returned, and served 120 seats for the next four years. The winter of 1995 brought more renovations, and in March 1996 the Log Cabin Lodging and Fine Food opened with six rooms. The winter of 1997 brought more changes, the dining room downsized to 20 seats, serving dinner only, amd 2 more rooms were created. The spring of 1999 brought the swimming pool. And in 2003, the Harpswell room became the 9th and final room.
March of 2010 we celebrated our 30th year of business, 15 as a restaurant, and 15 as an Inn. There are no more major changes planned for the future. We like the Log Cabin just as it is, and lucky for us the guests do too!!
