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.

Room Tip: Get a second floor room if you can handle the stairs. You get a better view.

My wife and I stayed at the Kineo View Motor Lodge for a few nights. It was our first trip to Greenville and we very much enjoyed it. We stayed in the Overlook Suite and it was well worth the money. The owners were very nice and the location was perfect. It is close to the village ( a few minute ride) but in a very quiet location. We will stay there again and hope to return very soon.

What a wonderful motel!! The owners are very much hands-on and our overnight stay was terrific! We were so surprised that our low-rate room contained all the amenities you could possibly imagine! We were delighted at the private balcony and the scenic view was breathtaking!! The continental breakfast was a adequate for our personal needs and the breakfast room itself was tastefully decorated and charming. Excellent experience!

Recently stayed at the Kineo View with our family of five. We stayed in the family suite. It was reasonably priced, spacious and very clean. The staff was quite friendly and helpful. The view is truly beautiful. OK breakfast - bagels, English muffins, cold cereal and homemade muffins (very good). It is a motel - so don't expect anything luxurious.

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.
