Totally amazing - What a place!

5 of 5
This cabin was tastefully decorated and was so clean and comfortable, it felt like you were at home. The view of the lake was like nothing we'd seen before and we enjoyed many mornings sat on our dock in the sunshine enjoying the tranquility and amazing view. It was a lovely relaxing holiday, wildlife viewing, kayaking and taking a trip on the steamboat Katahdin around Moosehead Lake. If you are looking for a getaway from it all and complete relaxation, this is it! We loved the place and didn't want to leave and highly recommend it! (One thing to bear in mind is the the road leading to the cabin is a dirt road that you are on for 20 mins so would recommend a 4x4 that can cope with the wear and tear.)

Loon's Nest

5 of 5
My friend & I stayed at Loon's Nest in September (a perfect time of year). The house was wonderful with all the amenities you would ever need. I would recommend this home to anyone! It was so convenient having a dock since we brought our boat (which we could launch at the nearby marina). The location was terrific - private, not far from Greenville, restaurants, shopping, etc. We plan on returning to Loon's Nest!
