We had been recommended a B&B in Greenville by the Tourist Information Centre, but when we arrived there was no one there. We returned a couple of times, but still no one around. We tried a couple of other places, but everywhere was full, so we headed out of Greenville back to the TI Centre. It had closed. Just beyond it, heading out of Greenville was a sign for the Kineo View Motor Lodge. We turned in, and headed along the long, unmade road, and eventually came across the most beautifully positioned lodge with fabulous views of Moosehead Lake and Mount Kineo. My parents took the Overlook Suite, which was gorgeous – a huge private balcony, fully equipped kitchen, working fireplace, sofa, dinning table and chairs. We could have stayed in the small bedroom in the suite, but it was tiny and the bed a bit rickety, so we opted for a double room next door which was large and comfortable, also with wonderful views. We spent two nights in the end, and ate in, making use of the fully fitted kitchen in the suite. The owner, George, was most helpful and friendly. A complimentary breakfast was served in a downstairs room, but we opted to have our own breakfast in the suite. All in all, a fabulous place, views to die for, and one of the most beautiful and peaceful places to stay. Also fantastic for stargazing being far enough out of town to avoid light pollution. HIghly recommended!
