When Tom and Sandy purchased the store in 2012, they stood on the roof and realized the view of the lake that could be achieved by adding floors to the building. In 2022 the first phase of that dream became a reality with the addition of the Golden Road Yacht Club. In the fall of 2021, the foundation and base structure went through a major renovation to prepare for the building to add two more stories in the future. The first phase was to prepare the building for that expansion and to add the bar so guests could now eat and drink on site and enjoy the amazing view of the lake afforded by the second-floor deck.
Many ask why the name Golden Road Yacht Club? We discussed many names but decided being next to the Golden Road it seemed only fitting to give a nod to the famous Golden Road and being in between Millinocket and Pemadumcook Chain of Lakes the Yacht Club was added to the name.
We offer all kinds of beer, wine, and cocktails with a eye towards Maine Brews and Spirits. All specialty drinks are hand crafted with home made special syrups and garnish and local spirits if available. We of course have a full bar to choose from and will make most drinks, other than frozen drinks due to lack of space. Our full menu is available on both decks and on the top deck the bartender will serve you as well. The Yacht Club is open daily as weather permits and from noon to 8pm during high season.
Come enjoy the view, the food and drinks, the hospitality, and the new friends you are likely to make.
