“Its a great lake if you like snakes.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

I have fished this lake a few times myself. Yes I have also come across a few water snakes. It’s a shallow lake and a nice place for snakes to live.

“An awesome little getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2011

I stayed here this year and think I will come back again. These cabins were very secluded and had an awesome lake view. My husband and I were very happy during our stay as the cabin was clean and the appeared to be very relaxing. We'll be back again for sure.

“I like snakes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2011

Actually Maine is the only state with no posonous snakes. Do a google search and see for yourself. Unless you have a phobia or are a nut case, what's the problem with a few snakes? Pocomoonshine is a very pretty lake.

“Very clever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2010

Well it looks like the locals are trying to keep Pokey to themselves. Over 55 years of visiting this lake and I may have seen 5 or 6 snakes in total. I have seen more in my own backyard in sixteen years. I have enjoyed many activities from swimming, boating and fishing. I find this lake to be a lovely, quiet and relaxing place that I too would like to keep to myself. But would that be fair.
