Excellent, friendly, and knowledgeable staff. Clean and spacious rooms. AMAZING views. Close, easy access to Moosehead Lake and the environs. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat and highly recommend you do the same!

This place seems like perfection. I think only a nice hot tub under the stars could have made it better. We visited before the crowds arrive in the region and I'm fairly sure we were the only ones there. The view is amazing, the atmosphere is very quiet, and the room is comfortable and just "moose- themed" enough to make it cute but not kitchy. The only downside I can think of is that the pipes made funny noises after our showers. Would definitely stay here again.

So instead of going camping in the pouring rain last weekend, we canceled our camping reservation and instead made one at Kineo View Motor Lodge in Greenville. Even though Memorial Day weekend is usually the beginning of peak season, those rates hadn't been applied yet. The owner greeted us in the gift shop and we chatted for a little bit; he was very pleasant. We got to our room, which was pretty average; bed, tv, bathroom, loveseat and found a small balcony. Really wish the weather was better as the fog was so heavy we couldn't see past the trees. One unusual item was a plastic lining on the bed underneath the mattress cover. That had to go as it made crunching noises. The bed was ok; I was surprised to see colored sheets with a design and not your basis white bleached sheets. The tv got about 6 channels but we really didn't care about that. We could hear the neighbors on both sides pretty well and there was a strange banging noise every once in a while behind our bed when the heat came on. Complimentary breakfast began at 7 but we knew the Legion was having it's Woodsman's breakfast so we went there instead. I'd stay here again; it wasn't that bad. All I really care about is that the bathroom is clean and the bed has fresh sheets.

We stayed just one night off season in May on our way to the Maine North Woods.
We liked pretty much everything about this place, comfortable, friendly, helpful owner, clean, things well maintained. The only downside was that the sound transmission from outside the room to inside was not so good. The fishermen staying there were up and out at 4 or 5 AM and when they went down the outside stairs it sounded like they were dragging trunks down the stairs! Maybe they were! I would suggest asking for a second floor and if possible, a room with no one adjoining.
Enjoy.

Room Tip: Second floor with no one adjoining your room walls if possible.

I had the good fortune to stay here two weeks on a trip in the autumn. The staff was extremely courteous, rooms were clean and spacious. View from my second floor room could not be better! The morning breakfast menu was very good.

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
