We stayed at one of the more isolated cabins at the resort. It was pretty cool, built in the thirties, and got the rustic experience we wanted. However the beds were very uncomfortable. The location on Moose Head Lake was beautiful and peaceful; lovely to wake up early and hear the loons. The resort offers many enjoyable activities and guided trips however very expensive. In fact a weeks stay was about the same price as a cottage on the beach at Cape Cod - no matter how lovely I expected a cabin in Maine to be a little cheaper. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food in the main building is good and
it's a nice place to eat, right on the water. There's also a full bar. This is a great place if you want the quiet, peaceful beauty of Moose Head Lake. But if money is an issue you might want to shop around or go further north.
