Nice secluded motel with a wonderful view. On a clear nigh the stars are spectacular!
We've stayed at Kineo View four times. The rooms are clean and neat with a small refrigerator and microwave. We've never had the continental breakfast as we prefer to go into Greenville to Auntie M's for breakfast.
The owners have been peasant and helpful.
We like the corner rooms but unfortunately the wifi doesn't work there so I went to the breakfast room to use my computer.
I would suggest a room on the second floor because it is quieter.
It would be nice if they had lamps on both sides of the bed for reading

This is a bare bones lodging option, but the rooms are very clean. The proprietors, George and Diane are super nice and helpful. The view of Mt. Kineo and Moosehead Lake from the second floor is absolutely spectacular. We happened to return to the motel in time to catch a view of the sunset, and it truly is breathtaking! I can see how the drive up the long gravel driveway at night could seem a bit like something straight out of a Stephen King movie as there are no street lamps. The continental breakfast was very nice. I especially enjoyed the Maine Blueberry muffin as it was not too sweet, and it in fact looked and tasted home made. The gift shop is really cute with some very nice items at very reasonable prices. It is definitely worth a stop!

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor have the best view

Simple motel with an outstanding view. Low key environment, pet friendly and it seemed like the guests were as pleasant as the owners and staff. Wifi worked well and we were surprised by the refrigerator and microwave in our large room. Best part was the porch which even on the 1st floor allowed a great view. Overall very nice stay in a motel that surprised us by being more than expected given the budget friendly price!

Room Tip: Views are good from both 1st and 2nd floors

My husband and I picked this hotel because they allow dogs in some of their rooms. Even after reading prior reviews, I was surprised by the views! The porperty is lovely - we took the dogs for a walk in the fresh snow and enjoyed the land and the views. The downstairs rooms each had coffee makers, fridge and microwave but were bare bones other than that. A budget hotel with a great view,

We had a first floor room, it had a nice view of the meadow and woods, however, the person in the room above was 'at it' most of the night. This meant a mostly sleepless stay for us as there was the constant squeaking of springs and the occasional slam again the walls two of the three nights. There was also problems with their wifi, but they do have a cold breakfast, which was nice enough, and the location is not too far from Moosehead Lake and fairly close to a large sporting goods/grocery store. If it weren't for the sleepless nights I would give them a much better rating.

What makes this place special are the hosts, George and Diane. There is no local question they can't answer and no request that is inconvenient. They love what they do and it shows!
The views are marvelous, the rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast is just right. We have stayed here a few times and would not think of staying any where else. Great for kids or couples too.

We spent two nights at Kineo View Motor Lodge and had a really enjoyable stay. Our stay in the Moosehead Lake area was enhanced greatly by the sage advice passed on by our host, George. All questions we had for things to do with the children were answered with very appropriate and considered advice.

All of the rooms have excellent views over the lake and surrounding hills and forests and the room was well maintained and very clean. Breakfast was in a friendly room with lots of chatting amongst the guests.

The motel is a couple of miles out of town in an elevated position which reduces the lake views but compensates for this will lovely sunsets and sunrises and is also very quiet. This last bit was welcome as the Greenville's pubs were jumping on the Friday night.

The highlight for us was the Mt Kineo climb which offers absolutely stunning views after a short ferry ride and 1 hour walk.
