“Point of view is the BEST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Kineo View is a small motor lodge part way up a hill, and gives you an absolute beautiful view from every room. You look out on forest, Moosehead Lake, mountains, and sometimes, luckily, a moose! Also great viewing of the night sky from your own deck. The owner is knowledgeable of the area, and gives helpful advice. Also, the zucchini bread is the BEST!!

Room Tip: All rooms have a view, we prefer the second floor. Corner rooms have more windows.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

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.
