My husband and I went back to Moosehead lake for a second time this year. It is very pretty and tons of wildlife. It is a small town and not a lot of people. Everyone is very friendly. I would recommend this for a vacation for anyone!

The lake is stunning. The view from our rental home #208 found on TA on the rental properties has sweeping views of the lake. It's rained the whole time we have been here but with a few shots clearing it is worth it. Want to come back with better weather next summer so we can go kayaking and fishing which... More

The lake is beautiful and pretty calm. We are on day 3 of our visit. There's lots to do including riding the katadin, shopping, fishing and boating. We couldn't be happier with this place.

Over crowded. This is suppose to be a relaxing area with great views instead it was crazy with people trampling on the eco system. Very sad.

We were only there for one night to see some moose. What a shame. It was lovely and I would have loved to stay longer.

We had originally wanted to stay at the Inn on Moosehead Lake but it was hard for a family of 5. We loved our house so much and had a fabulous 5 days there. We went on a... More

This is just a great area if you want some remoteness and still be able to eat at a restaurant in the evening. It's a journey to get here, regardless of your starting point, but well worth the trip if you're into this kind of vacation or want to try something different than the "Theme Park" scene.
