Lugdon Lodge is owned by Ed and Marion Lugdon – lifetime residents of Maine. Currently four generations of Lugdons and many friends work throughout the year to provide adventures in hunting, fishing, mountain climbing, swimming, kayaking and all that Maine has to offer.
Ed and Marion are lifelong Mainers and avid outdoor recreational enthusiasts. Both are licensed Maine guides. They are committed to fostering a love and respect of the outdoors and all it has to offer in the next generation while providing meaningful and successful hunts and adventures for those who already LOVE to be outside.
Ed has over 40 years of experience hunting, fishing and trapping in Maine. He is a fascinating storyteller and people, young and old, have been known to beg for various stories of hunts or adventures he has been on. Would you believe he treed a moose once?
Marion has always loved outdoor recreation. She spends many days hiking, swimming, biking, snowshoeing and now dogsledding with her children and friends. Marion has hunted, fished and trapped with Ed for almost 40 years. She is currently an elementary school teacher.
Ed and Marion are wonderful teachers and extremely talented individuals. Time spent in their presence is time well spent ! !
