My family and I are just back from a week's vacation on Moosehead Lake in the Birch Point Cabins. We stayed in K2, which is the larger of the two cabins on site. Pete and Elizabeth are a wonderful retired couple that purchased the two cabins next door to their house on Birch Point a few years ago and completely renovated and updated them. Pete and a friend did most of the work themselves! Everything you could possibly need is provided - the kitchen is fully stocked and they even provided towels and linens for an additional nominal charge. We thoroughly enjoyed canoeing (rentals from Northwoods Outfitters about a mile down the street), and sailing on our Sunfish that we brought with us. We spent a day fishing on (stocked) Prong Pond, a day hiking Big Squaw Mountain, a day blueberry picking, and a day cruising the lake on the historic Katadin steamer. Lots to do - even when the weather does not cooperate.
The K2 cabin is lovely - gorgeous views of the lake, homemade needlepoint touches, clean, new, and comfortable. There's a grill for your use, chairs around a fire pit, and plenty of room for swimming and docking boats. We paid $1,000 for a week during the high season, and made our reservation in January in order to get a week that worked for us.
I can't say enough about Pete and Elizabeth. They are delightful, helpful and attentive without being intrusive. They made our stay so wonderful...always at the ready with directions, tips for things to do or places to go, and even digging up reference books to help me to identify the birds and the mink (!) I saw.
I highly recommend the Birch Point Cabins and Moosehead Lake for your family's next vacation. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
