“Couldn't be better in Maine.”
Reviewed 12 December 2012

the owner is a hoot, selection of accomodation types (outhouse to indoor plulmbing), fishing, swimming and beautiful scenery. You'll love this place to be in that picture you see or great fishing and other local sights.

“Snake Lake”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

I was up in Washington County last summer on a fishing vacation. While I was getting a haircut in Calais the woman cutting my hair was asking me about what I was doing up there on vacation. When I told her I had been fishing that morning on Pocomoonshine Lake, she actually paused for a second with a confused look, and then, yes, she actually proclaimed, "OH, Snake Lake!". Apparently that is what the locals call it.

Aren't all of these lakes populated with the same water snakes? Anyway, the fishing was OK. It is shallow and rocky, and there are no buoys, so bring a spare prop.

“Its a great lake if you like snakes.”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

I have fished this lake a few times myself. Yes I have also come across a few water snakes. It’s a shallow lake and a nice place for snakes to live.

“An awesome little getaway”
Reviewed 28 December 2011

I stayed here this year and think I will come back again. These cabins were very secluded and had an awesome lake view. My husband and I were very happy during our stay as the cabin was clean and the appeared to be very relaxing. We'll be back again for sure.
