We have stayed there several times in both winter and summer. They have been very gracious to donate to a charity auction several times and we have purchased. As you would expect, you need to pay attention to your certificate on the restrictions, but other than that they are the most gracious hosts and want you to enjoy the beauty... More

It takes a little bit of driving to get there, but the Moosehead Region is well worth it. If you love the beauty of the outdoors, wildlife, hiking, hunting or fishing this is the place for you. Or like me you like to photograph the shear beauty of northern Maine. If your looking for miniature golf and water parks this... More

Wonderful scenery, had a great 30 mile skidoo trip out on the trails. We took the skidoos out onto the frozen lake to get into the woods. We were lucky to visit the crash site on Elephant Mountain and pay homage at the crash site where the B52 came down in 1963. The site was adorned with American flags, the... More

One of the most memorable things me and my family did while there was go on a canoe trip with a guide to a pond to see moose. They are absolutely stunning animals and everything you hear is peace and quiet aside from the frogs in the pond. You just feel like you're with nature.

I spent most of my week long vacation here. Every day held something new to see and do! I had my Service Dog with me, which I believe is allowed; I'm not sure about 'regular' dogs. The trails are kept in excellent shape. The rocky shoreline yields plenty of interesting things to look at. On one side of the lake,... More

We went on a cruise on the Katahdin steamboat, called "Kate". What a relaxing cruise up & down this huge lake. We had an added attraction as we were there for the International Sea Plane Fly-In. Fun. Beauty & history surround this gorgeous lake.
