68 Naiad Ln, Turner, ME
Max Capacity: 2,000 people
The Great Outdoors Waterfront Event Center LLC is located on the northerly end of Pleasant Pond on Route 117 in Turner, Maine. Our family oriented, lakefront setting lends itself to a variety of uses: day and evening functions such as weddings and receptions, family reunions, anniversaries, company events and staff retreats. Special events can be combined with our traditional and nontraditional overnight accommodations or held separately. Four classic Maine cottages, yurt rentals, and two other off-grid rentals too unique to describe here provide just the right sleeping comfort for all ages, for the adventurous and the not so bold. The Great Outdoors has offered cottage rentals, waterfront access and function facility rentals since 1978, and was voted the 2008 Turner Business of the Year by the Androscoggin County Chamber of Commerce.
