I grew up in Maine and lived there for many years, but now at 70 years old, I decided to see the lake. The road in and the road out were quite deserted as one would expect in the winter in Maine, but the scenery was gorgeous as one would expect in winter in Maine. The small town of Greenville...

We knew it would take several hours. But we did not know what we were getting into. After having breakfast in Kokadjo we proceeded to drive around Moosehead Lake. We got towards the north end of the lake when we come across a arm across the road directing us to pull into a parking lot and go into the adjacent... More

We really enjoyed our week here at Moosehead Cottages Resort the last week of October. Only a few restaurants were open, but they were all good in different ways. We searched for moose daily, driving to Rockwood, Kokadjo, and Shirley before daybreak and evening and times in between, but to paraphrase Dylan Thomas "the wise moose never appeared!" Still we...

Kayaking on the lake was amazing and beautiful! We enjoyed the loons, eagles and even saw a moose splashing in the water!

A five hour drive from the Boston area and only two hours from Quebec City. Moosehead Lake is a little peace of paradise in northwestern Maine. You are surrounded by nature, the lake is the largest East of the Mississippi and the foliage is beautiful. Lots of fun restaurants, nature walks, cute little downtown in Greenville. We rented a post... More

Stayed at Caseys on Spencer Bay past Lily Bay State Park. Lake is 40 miles long so be aware of wind conditions at all times. Canada is visible from several high mountains surrounding the lake or do what we did, take a seaplane ride. Very tiny town looks easily crowded in the summer, active logging operations going on outside of... More

Gorgeous, magical lake set amidst trees and mountains. Sleepy surroundings, lovely mountains may be seen in the distance. Best if you have access to a boat to really get out on the water. Great hikes in the area.
