What makes Lovell Lake particularly beautiful is its wooded perimeter, which is densely covered in forest pines, firs, beech trees, elm trees, and oak trees.

In fact, it doesn’t even matter if winter rolls around, you’ll still be bound to find visitors making their way to the shores of Lovell Lake. Vacation rentals are available around the lake’s perimeter, while cabins are also available for rent in the surrounding area.
