The inn was nice enough though basic. We were supposed to stay second night but the weather was iffy and there isn't much to do other than lake activities or head to the park but we had already had our fill camping and hiking and boating before we arrived. We felt it was very overpriced but they do have the... More

Called to book a cabin and were told "private bathroom" but not that your private bathroom is in a separate building with all the other cabins private stalls. Showers-the same on the other side of the same building. Was not made clear we were to bring our own towels although do note that on the website ... but not everyone... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with extended family. What a wonderful experience! We stayed in The Owl (cabin 3)& there were plenty of beds for all 7 of us. We had kids with us & they loved exploring Lake Millnocket & the beach across the street. We used the canoes & kayaks. It was a treat to see Mt.... More

Upon arrival at the Inn after a 5 hour drive from Boston it was immediately evident that we were in the middle of the most rustic of offerings Maine's wilderness has in its possession. This 165 year old building has been expanded over time and is absolutely spotless !! Walking into the foyer you are greeted by a "Big Moose"... More

We were really impressed with the Big Moose Inn, as it was located in the middle of the Maine woods. It was not perfect, but it was almost perfect for us. The Hotel is an old house or Inn that has many rooms of many styles. The antique furniture and decorations make it a cozy and quaint place. The beds... More

Based on the previous reviews here and the website, I expected the rooms in the inn to have lakeviews, lots of space, and standard hotel amenities like wifi and central air. I wasn't dissatisfied with my stay, but none of these expectations were met. It's a kitschy inn with very small rooms; ours barely fit the full sized bed and... More

Hello Wesley! Some of our rooms do have limited space. These are the rooms that have not been renovated - I assume you stayed in Room 6 or 8. Our inn has a lot of history, including it's time as a home. We have added on larger rooms, spacious suites, the restaurant, bar, and much more. I'm sorry to hear... More

Excellent access to BSP and Katahdin. Very pretty little campground on a lake, and the inn and pub are cozy (and they have wifi). We rented Sleep Cabin 3 and found the beds to be very comfortable, especially after 9 hours hiking Katahdin. Perfect for our purposes. We'll be back.

My husband and I stayed in Suite 1 in the lodge for two nights. We were checking out the area for hiking Katahdin next month. Great location. Reasonable price with breakfast included.

The cabins were comfy and clean. The lake was beautiful and it was very inexpensive to rent water toys; SUPs, kayaks & canoes. I loved that there was a good restaunt and pub right on site. It was very nice to relax on the porch in the rockers with a cocktail after our long hike on Katahdin. The sunset over... More
