Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Greenville - NORTH ISLAND

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6), deck, picnic table

This property offers a unique opportunity to stay on your own private island for a relaxing getaway. Experience a peacefulness with friends or family in a cozy camp surrounded by beautiful Moosehead Lake. Catch fish off the front ledge, set a chair on the sandbar with your feet in the water, or doze in the double hammock.

North Island is very easy to get to, located approximately 1.5 mile up the East Cove from Greenville town center, 1.7 miles from the Greenville Jct. Wharf and approximately 200 ft from mainland. The boat dock can accommodate a 22 ft boat. If you will be using canoes or kayaks (can be rented in Greenville), we will happily transport your gear for you with our boat and provide a closer parking spot to go from. For your vehicle, parking is free at the Jct wharf and downtown Greenville, if you prefer private parking you can use our backyard, only a stone's throw from the Greenville docks. We are more than willing to make your stay easy and fun.

The island offers all of the comforts of home with propane stovetop, refrigerator, shower and lights. The Biolet composting toilet is clean and convenient. We start you off with 10 gals. of drinking water. A fire pit on the south end of the island and gas grill can also be used for cooking. There are seats around the fire pit, a fun place to watch for falling stars.

.

The sun rises on the boathouse and boat dock (quiet place to drink your coffee) and sets on the deck across the island. Ducks and loons swim by. There's a bait trap to catch your own live bait, a net, just bring your own fishing pole. Two smaller islands are connected to the main island by a sandbar, great for wading for small children. There are several spots for tents if anyone feels like sleeping outside.

Dogs love the island and are very welcome. There is a $50 cleaning fee for one or two dogs, $100 for 3 or 4.

We provide the linens, kitchen and bath towels, and the kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, dishes, coffee pot (percolator), and cutlery. You will need to bring your own beach towels.

If it rains, the cozy camp has books for all ages, puzzles and board games. The village of Greenville has restaurants, shopping, small local museums. There are mountain climbs nearby, if you have a big enough boat you can even dock at Kineo Mtn and climb there. Squaw Village and Kineo Golf courses are accessible by boat.

You can easily boat downtown and dock at the public dock to get an ice cream cone, pizza, dinner out or shopping. Please don't hesitate to email or call with any questions.

About Janet Chasse

North Island is owned by two families, Janet and Brian Chasse, Heidi and Jeff Richards. Both families live in Greenville and are very involved in the Greenville community. Heidi and Janet both work from home, Brian as a carpenter and Jeff as a Merchant Seaman (and coach when he's off duty). Both families, with their children ranging in ages from 11 to 32, have enjoyed the island immensely.

Janet Chasse purchased this cabin in 1992

Why Janet Chasse chose Greenville

Janet and Brian bought the island over 20 years ago when they were looking for a place nearby to camp with their 5 kids. What a perfect spot to spend summers! Jeff (Janet's brother) and Heidi bought in several years ago and both families are presently tied up a lot with their kid's activities and sports, so we decided to rent some. We give the camp a thorough cleaning and check over between each renter and are nearby if you need anything.

What makes this cabin unique

North Island is close enough to town to feel comfortable, but is so private and peaceful, a great place to relax and reconnect with family and friends. All you need to bring is food and clothes. We are readily available if you need us for anything, but you won't see us (or anyone else) on the island unless you want to. At this time the rental is available May-Sept.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great week - as did our dogs Mac and Jesse. We will call early next year to rent again- what a wonderful camp and island!

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 out of 5
We just returned from a wonderful week at North Island. Thank you Janet and Heidi. The cabin was wonderful and charming. We all slept like babies. The island is nicely landscaped and the firepit area and docks were beautiful. The gas lamps in the cottage really set a cool retro mood....play cards, talk, read, swim....Our 3 dogs loved swimming! Thank you for sharing your lovely island with us. We will definitely return!

Perfect solitude!!

  • 5 out of 5
Great week on 3 private islands. Perfect weather - no mosquitoes, no flies, no bugs. Beautiful island setting - sunny dock for coffee in the mornings, great fire pit space for s'mores in the evenings where we could watch the sunset, dogs (4 Rhodesian Ridgebacks) swam after ducks, lounged in sunny spots and shady places, large deck with picnic table for outside dining, sun shower convinced us we needed one in our backyard at home, lake is pristine, no traffic noise, comfortable beds, would go again and stay two weeks instead of one.

Great vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband, son and his girlfriend, as well as our dogs, had an outstanding week on North Island. We brought both our boats, and explored the lake, kayaked, hiked on Mt Kineo, and visited Greenville and had dinner at the Black Frog. It is definitely a rustic setting, but the peace and tranquility was wonderful. The description is very accurate.

The dogs loved playing in the sandbar between North Island and the 2 other islands that are right next to it. The water was still cold at the beginning of the week, so it was great to be able to ease into the water slowly to acclimate, while the dogs played. By mid week, Mother Nature had done a nice job of warming up the water a bit, so it was nice to be able to dive in off the north dock on the other side of the island, to get cooled off.

The Biolet is very clean, and the outhouse is a very short walk from the cabin. The cabin was very clean and well stocked. The beds were comfortable. The island is actually a good size, with trails leading to the docks, hammock, boat house, firepit, and deck with the picnic table. The fire pit is in a gorgeous location, surrounded on 3 sides by water!

I can't say enough about Janet and Heidi. They were so helpful and accomodating, and checked in on us the morning we were due to check out, because of the remnants of a Hurricane that came thru on Friday night, and continued thru most of Saturday. We were able to make it back to the boat ramp by noon, and Janet was gracious and let us park our vehicles and trailers at her house, and shuffled me back between the boat ramp and her house to get our vehicles. We had lost both of our kayaks the night before due to high winds, and Janet put a post on her Facebook page about our missing kayaks, and 2 of her friends found our kayaks, each one on opposite sides of the lake. Heidi called us on our way home to let us know. They couldn't have been more gracious and helpful.

2 thumbs up! Thank you, Janet and Heidi!

An awesome family getaway!

  • 5 out of 5
North Island was everything we expected and more! My family and 2 dogs loved spending all day every day together with no electronic distractions. We enjoyed swimming around the 3 islands and the swim dock, canoeing, going on 'nature hikes' as my kids called them, and playing games and doing puzzles every evening.
Janet and Heidi kindly ferried us over on their boat and we rented a canoe from Northwoods (they were great to work with). The cabin is just as described. The propane lights and shower worked well, and we brought and prepared all our own meals using the fridge, freezer, 2 burners and outdoor grill. The large windows with screens let us stay cool during the day and night. The biolet was very clean, new and well-maintained. Greenville is also a quaint town - we canoed there for lunch and watched the 4th of July parade and there's a supermarket there should you need supplies. All in all a fantastic week and we hope to return next year!

A fantastic Moosehead Lake experience!

  • 5 out of 5
North Island is the perfect Moosehead Lake experience. A private island with an adorable cabin, not too remote, but just remote enough to feel like you are really taking a Maine vacation.

My mother, my brother and his three children (10 - 13 years old) visited with us for part of our stay. The cabin's two bedrooms were very comfortable, and we pitched a tent on the picnic platform for the kids. The kids loved exploring the island, helping with the campfires and swimming in the lake!

If you are looking for luxury accommodations, this is probably not the place for you. But if you love being outdoors, and don't mind being disconnected from your electronics, North Island is perfect! Very peaceful and totally comfortable. Yes, the lights are propane, and we did need to pump our own water to do the dishes. But there is a refrigerator to keep the beverages cold, and the outhouse was super clean and well maintained.

We loved watching the Katahdin go by every afternoon and seeing the loons fishing just off shore was a treat. Janet and her family were fantastic with helping us on and off the island with all our stuff, and the nice folks at Northwoods Outfitters helped ferry the family out in a pinch. Otherwise we managed quite nicely with just our kayaks.

We are already looking forward to the next time we can visit the island!
