Beech Hill Pond is a lovely spring fed lake near Route 180 in Hancock County, ME.  At this point, it is a clean, clear, high quality and attractive lake.  We long to keep it that way for generations. 

Beech Hill Pond is 1,351 acres and 4 1/2 miles long. Its deepest point is 121 feet (new deep hole discovered).

Throughout this web site, we may refer to "our lake". Who is "our" and "we"? Technically speaking, the lake is owned and regulated by State and Federal interests. Thus, everybody owns the lake; water quality is everyone's concern and will directly and indirectly affect all.

However, some of us from all over the world hold special affection for Beech Hill Pond. Family memories, fish stories, stunning photos, camp fire tales, loon songs, and sunsets are just a few of the treasures that are so endearing. This lake has charmed its admirers for generations. A special affection and bonding arises in the hearts of some.

So "we" and "our", in this web site takes on two meanings: (1) all citizens, and (2) all admirers. For the most part, however, this site speaks for the "admirers" of Beech Hill Pond and those who love the lake and dream that it's pristine quality will never be compromised.
