This motel is located a couple miles away from Moosehead Lake, but does offer great views of the southern end of the lake and a couple of the islands. The rooms are nice in size and well appointed with wifi, minifridges, and microwaves. The minifridge allowed us to stock up on drinks and snacks for our hikes and the freezer portion got cold enough to freeze water and gatorade to remain cold throughout our day-long hikes. The room had a private balcony with two chairs and a small table, and looks over a field, woods, Moosehead Lake, and Mt. Kineo in the background. One of the things that struck me most about the room, was how fresh it smelled when we first entered. I know this may seem like a little thing, but most rooms have a cold, slightly musty, damp smell when you first check-in like they didn't have the air-conditioner on, and then try to over compensate by turning the AC on full balst right before you check in. This room smelled very pleasant and was an ideal temperature.
The owner is a hidden gem. He is friendly, quiet, and unassuming, but has a wealth of information. All you need to do is ask. He can tell you the best restaurant (whatever your taste), where to find moose, great hikes, etc. He not only knows the immediate area, but the surrounding area (~100-200 mile radius).
The motel is quiet, it is set back from the highway ~1/2 a mile or more, and only has about a dozen rooms. It is a great place to get away from it all.
