“Lovely Lodge, Great Hospitality and beautiful scenery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

We had never been to Maine before so we decided to do a "taste of Maine" which included Bar Harbor, Camden, Moosehead Lake, and Portland. We picked Moosehead Lake because I saw the website for the Lodge. The website represents the Lodge very well. This stop and Camden was where we pampered ourselves. The rooms cost a bit more than I typically spend but I thoroughly enjoyed the Lodge. We stayed in the Loon room. The room was bigger than I had expected from seeing the pictures on the website. The balcony looked over the lake. It was so beautiful. Linda (co-owner with her husband Dennis) was watering plants when we arrived. She was so welcoming and inviting. We felt at home right away. She also bakes amazing chocolate chip cookies. Dennis also cooks. We got to try his delicious blueberry muffins, scones and Belgian apple pancakes.

We took the Moose Safari because one of my goals for the trip was to see a moose. Mark was our guide and he was very informative. It had rained heavily the night before. We were unsuccessful in seeing any while we were out but we went back out on our own later to do some hiking and we saw one (a cow). My Maine vacation was complete.

We really enjoyed Moosehead Lake and the Lodge.

My husband and I were vacationing for the week in Maine and Quebec. We were traveling with our motorcycle (in a trailer) and going to areas that looked of interest to us, or to areas that offered better weather forecasts. We ended up choosing this location, as the weather was predicted to be great; and it was. Unfortunately there are not great roads in the area for motorcycles, otherwise we would have definitely spent 2 nights. The Lodge was top notch! Linda has an amazing B&B that we felt honored to have been able to enjoy. We stayed in the Loon Room. It is very clear that she truly cares about her guests from all that is provided in the room for your comfort. To mention only a few things-the luxurious king bed, the mini fridge area offering coffee, the balcony with the very comfortable patio furniture, the amazing view of the lake (especially at sunset), the bathroom with a great custom vanity. We would definitely recommend this location for your stay if you are looking for a high end B&B that offers superior views and an extremely quiet setting; although we did feel it was a little on the pricey side.

Moosehead Lodge was chosen because of in part the view but also because of the information on the website. We decided to treat ourselves as the price was a little more than we would normally look to spend on such a vacation. The website was inviting and indicated that you would be staying in luxurious surroundings overlooking the spectacular Moosehead Lake.

Despite some of the other Trip Advisors reviews Linda our host was welcoming, friendly and informative and spoke with pride of what she is trying to achieve at The Lodge. The rooms are very comfortable and well equipped and there are some lovely touches included such as the evening information sheet detailing the weather for the next day on vacation and at home as well as a nice and turndown service.

We stayed in the Bear Room and whilst comfortable the bathroom was tired and needs bringing up to date with the rest of the bedroom. The outside space was a big let down with a very small balcony viewable on three sides providing no privacy and a uncomfortable bench as furniture and a small parasol but that could be due to the space available. Compared to our travel partners in the Loon Room we certainly got the poor end in balcony space and privacy.

We arrived after a drive from Bar Harbor so on the first day of our stay we decided to take advantage of the dining option on offer, in the main this turned out to be a very good decision sat on the balcony overlooking Moosehead Lake in the evening sun watching it set was an memorable experience. Given the shortage of places on offer nearby to eat this is something I think The Lodge could make more of if it wishes to be taken seriously as a boutique style lodge.

However there were negatives associated with the meal, first the meal was booked for 7pm however it was 8.20pm before our main course was served and as one of our group didn't partake in an appetiser this delay was too long.

It was not as if the place was busy.

Secondly one of our group is vegetarian and we had pre arranged with Linda a vegetarian option to be served. This was described by her as something special the chef had prepared but turned out to be anything but, it was basically the vegetables from a meat based main. In all honesty the vegetarian option appeared to have caused more of a problem to the chef than it should. The vegetables themselves were nice but certainly could not be considered special. In order to assist in the meal preparation we were asked to give two days notice of the menu choices which we did by email however when we arrived the choice of dessert was no longer available although the alternative was very good.

Breakfasts are more than adequate with a reasonable selection on offer and a different daily cooked course.

The Lodge hire overseas students to assist in the serving and room maintenance and I must say that both were very pleasant and attentive.


Would I say that The Lodge was value for money - No
Would I return if I'm the area - Probably Not
What was the best part of the stay - it has to be the view, but it is a lot to pay for.

If The Lodge is to be taken seriously in achieving its Luxurious Boutique status then it needs to up its game, I have stayed in better Bed and Breakfasts and have paid no where near this amount.

Verdict disappointed overall

Room Tip: Poor outside space in Bear Room opt for Loon if any

Thank you for your review. The view is, indeed, an important part of any visit to The Lodge at Moosehead Lake. As you noticed while here, the location of The Lodge offers a unique vantage point on nature’s wonders simply not available from any other location that is open to the public and accessible by paved road. But the view is only one factor in the total experience. The Lodge is not simply a boutique hotel or bed and breakfast. We take pride in offering guests private, individualized opportunities to “interact with” rather than simply “view” the Maine north woods, its beauty and its abundant wildlife. A visit to The Lodge, for most of our guests, entails much more than a superior quality room, incredible views and thoughtfully prepared “up north” cuisine. We are an “adventure lodge” and the total experience is what spurs many guests to return to The Lodge after their initial visit.

While your meal experience was “on the main a very good decision” and proved to be a ”memorable experience”, the delivery of the food was late and the vegetarian dish disappointing. We agree. A large party of guests (an extended family helping its ninety year old patriarch revisit boyhood memories of fishing trips at Moosehead Lake) was also dining with us on that evening. The gentleman caught a pair of salmon on his afternoon’s outing and the family made a last minute request for the chef to prepare his catch as a special treat in addition to their previously ordered meals. When it became apparent that preparation of your meals would be delayed, the hostess explained the situation to your table. The planned, especially prepared vegetarian dish also fell victim to the delay. We did not meet the expectations of all of our guests nor did we meet our expectations.

You considered the deck off of the Bear Room to be small. Again, we agree. Enlargement of the deck to the standard of the Loon Room deck that your travel companions enjoyed was scheduled for this spring. When the north woods winter persisted well into the month of May (the month that our “guest season” begins), those construction plans had to be rescheduled to this fall or next “spring” as mother nature will dictate. As return guests recognize and appreciate, the process of physical improvements to The Lodge facilities never ceases.

Should you change your mind and revisit the Moosehead Lake area, we invite you to at least stop in and view the changes that your comments have helped to spur forward. Thank you and safe traveling.

This lodge is in a perfect setting, on the last part of the tar roads before the Maine wilderness and dirt roads begin, with a stunning view of the lake and mountains beyond. The lodge is supremely comfortable in all its common spaces and the dining room, and our bedroom was lovely with more views, great linens and bed, and every comfort supplied. The hosts are so friendly and helpful. The food, prepared by Dennis, was gourmet and delicious. We took the Moose/Wildlife Safari with Maine Guide Mark and saw 5 moose, heard a loon, canoed on an isolated pond at dusk, and learned a wealth of interesting facts about the flora and fauna of this part of Maine. An unforgettable vacation!!

Room Tip: 8 of the 9 rooms in the lodge have lake views, so be sure to get one of them.

Fantastic location, immaculately clean, scrumptious food, and the best Cosmopolitan on the planet! The innkeeper, Linda is kind and attentive. Had an amazing photographic moose safari with Ed, our guide! Can't wait to visit again. This area of Maine is absolutely beautiful

My husband and I went to Maine for our 10 anniversary and we were glad we did! We stayed in the Loon room at the Lodge at Moosehead Lake and loved the view. The lodge was beautiful and the hosts were very accommodating. Linda arranged a fly fishing trip that was the unbelievable. She made sure we had the best guide and it was a great day. Thanks Linda, Dennis and Chole...we will be back!

We host many anniversaries and birthday's at the Lodge and it is always our pleasure to know a guest has selected our inn out of so many to celebrate a special time in their lives.

We have made it a point to make our trips unique and as special as your celebration. Bob Howe is our exclusive fishing and hunting guide. As you learned about his many philanthropic endeavors, you gain a real appreciation for Bob and the area he calls home. He is so good at reading people and designing trips based on their interests and experience levels. Just the kind of service we want all our guests to experience.

Michael made a special comment to me upon your departure. We know you love to travel and never go back to the same place - after all there is so much of the world to see. It is a great complement to know you want to come back here. Happy Travels to you both.

Greenville is pretty far up there for a New Yorker, but it was only 5 hours from Boston. If you want to really get away from it all you might enjoy Greenville--especially in the winter.

I felt like a kid again, doing lots of snow-centered activities.

The Lodge was top-notch, with great views, comfortable beds, good quality sheets, nice sealed-gas fireplace & a big bath.

Given that it was the end of the season, it was very quiet at the lodge. Not ideal if you want to make friends or spend hours chatting. But if you like calm & quiet you can't do much better.
