Orient, Maine
The Thoroughfare House is a comfortable older family home located in Orient Maine right next to US/Canadian Border Crossing-25 miles south of the town of Houlton Maine. Property is on the thoroughfare between North Lake and East Grand Lake and is an ideal spot for Hunters/Fishermen(Sportsmen/Sportswomen), Nature-Lovers/Birdwatchers, Family-types and summertime vacationers.

A typical summer day in Orient Maine could be spent by boating and swimming with cook outs and evenings outdoors roasting marshmallows while listening to the loons out back....Another day could be spent with a drive into New Brunswick, Canada-( be sure to bring your passport or birth certificate and a photo id if your plan to cross the US border into Canada during your stay).

Property seperated from other camps by woods and fields /a quieter getaway with it's ow...

A true Maine location in a fully equipped summer home. Everything but food is provided and I mean everything for playing, relaxing and cooking both indoors and out. We enjoyed the peacefulness of the property and water. The evening fires on the shore listening to the loons were very special to us. Florence was very helpful with information about the...

Beautiful vacation home by the lake, Florence and her husband were such a great hosts, who went beyond their way to help us feel welcome.

About the neighbourhood
The Thoroughfare House is located on the upper St. Croix watershed at the confluence of Dead Brook and the Thoroughfare at the head of East Grand Lake. Once located on the south side of Boundary Road, opposite the Customs house. it served as a U.S.inspection station until a new Customs House was built. The lakes are majestic in themselves with an abundance of fish, birds, ducks and other small and large wildlife everywhere. Just bring a camera as there are lots to video in and out of the waters. We have included a 15 hp outboard for your use (if requested). horseshoe pit and a lakeside picnic area. We are aiming for return customers and want to make your vacation here a pleasant one. Thank you for considering the Thoroughfare House for your vacation home. Preston Bonney
