Overview

About the property

Outdoor Vacation Experience...Family Friendly...Romantic Getaway...All-In-One!!

Our quiet, rustic, cabin (a.k.a. camp) offers families and couples a cozy, home-away-from-home after a fun filled day of hiking, fishing, kayaking, or many of the other outdoor activities available around Moosehead Lake. Make wonderful memories with family and friends outside on the deck, inside by the wood stove, or relaxing by the fire pit.

Our cabin has two bedrooms and sleeps four comfortably, and if needed, additional sleeping space is available with futons in the living room and private sunroom. A well-stocked kitchen provides all you need while away from home. Sit back in our Adirondack style chairs and enjoy your morning coffee on our quiet deck. Deer, chipmunks, and humming birds are regular visitors. A gas grill is also available for cooking up your own culinary specialties or comfort foods like burgers and dogs. The cabin's open lot provides a space to play and an inviting fire pit ready for Smores and sharing family stories. Wood for fire pit is provided.

The open floor plan (kitchen-living room) creates a cozy atmosphere with a separate sun room if you need a little extra space. The sun room is perfect for settling down with your favorite book, your morning coffee, an afternoon nap, or use as an extra bedroom. On cool nights, a wood stove in the living room provides plenty of warmth and adds to the already cozy atmosphere. Firewood provided.

Books, board games, cards, and family friendly DVDs are available in lieu of cable and wifi. Perfect for those who wish to 'unplug' while enjoying a relaxing vacation! Have a movie night on our flat screen TV with DVD player. All you need to provide is the popcorn. Or spend an evening of laughter and family fun with the wide selection of board games and cards! HOWEVER, if you must tear yourself away from the peace and quiet of the cabin, the library in town offers daily use of their internet service. Cell phone service at the cabin is very reliable for Verizon and US Cellular customers. AT&T has good coverage in town and on the dock at the end of the lake access trail.

Our cabin is located on quiet Harford's Point with Moosehead Lake access only 100 yards away. Trailhead to the lake is immediately across the road from the cabin and an easy walk to quiet dock. (Another good place for your morning coffee!) Enjoy a day of swimming and relaxing at the private beach (our 2nd lake access) and an evening of grilling and sitting by the fire. Trails suitable for beginners up to expert hikers are within a short drive. The roads on Harford's Point are also an excellent place to walk, jog, and ride bikes! There is a 9-hole golf course at the lake, 2 miles away from the cabin. The town of Greenville is a short drive away and offers restaurants, museums, grocery stores, a library, and many gift and/or outdoor shops. Kayaks, canoes and bikes are available for rent in town. You can sign up for moose safari tours and scenic plane rides. Take a scenic tour of the lake on the Katahdin, a steamboat (now converted to diesel) in use on the lake since 1936.

About Bill and Amy Roberts (Marion McManus-Property Manager)

We are a couple from Virginia who have been vacationing at Moosehead Lake since 1989. One of us is a Pennsylvania native while the other is a Tennessean. We both graduated from the University of Tennessee and landed in Virginia after getting married.

Bill and Amy Roberts (Marion McManus-Property Manager) purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Bill and Amy Roberts (Marion McManus-Property Manager) chose Greenville

We have been vacationing at Moosehead Lake since 1989, when we were a young couple and were invited up by a good friend who is a Greenville native. Many years and four children later, we are thankful to say that our four children have spent part of every summer of their lives swimming, boating, hiking and relaxing at the lake. Each summer we would dream about buying a place of our own in this beautiful place. In fact, we drove past this property every year on our way to the cabin where we would stay. We were so excited when the opportunity to buy it came up and we became homeowners in 2010. We hope to pass this camp down so that our children, grandchildren and maybe even great-grandchildren can enjoy it also. We LOVE Moosehead Lake, Greenville and the surrounding area and want others to be able to enjoy it, too!

What makes this cabin unique

We just love this cabin! It feels cozy, like a cabin in the woods should feel. In Maine, the cabins are called camps...the first time we walked in, we thought, 'Yes! This is how a camp should feel!' The sunroom is bright and welcoming. The old dutch door between the living room and front bedroom lends more charm to an already comfortable, charming, wood-stove equipped, high-ceilinged living room. When we are at camp, we spend every morning on the newly re-constructed deck, starting the day quietly and peacefully.

Great stay, super quiet area, perfect for couples or small families.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our stay. We came up for a wedding and stayed for 3 nights. The small wood stove is fantastic after a cool autumn day of leaf viewing and it is so quiet at night. Would love to have been right on the water but the 30-second walk to the shore through the woods was just fine. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Jon, Thank you for leaving us a review, and we are so glad you all had a great time! The Fall colors at Moosehead are breathtaking, and we are pleased that the wood stove provided the necessary warmth for the chilly Fall evenings. We are so glad you all enjoyed our "Slice of Heaven." Please come visit us again! Thank You, Bill and Amy Roberts

Beautiful get away family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Finding a place for our teenage children to all agree on isn't always easy this cabin hit the spot! Early in the morning we went out to the end of the dock just across the street from the cabin to catch a beautiful sunrise over the mountains. My son and I went from some fun morning jogs along the many paths not far from the cabin. It was also close to Big Moose Head mountain hiking train which was a great hike. The cabin was well furnished with heaters, plenty of extra blankets and lots of wood for the wood fired stove in the living room where we enjoyed playing games and watching night movies in the comfortable living room.

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were in the Greenville area for a wedding with my family and stayed in this Cozy Cabin. It was better than I had expected and the manager was great to work with when booking. The sunroom serves nicely as a third bedroom. The couple that slept there enjoyed the space. This was a great find.

Cute, quaint cabin-perfect for a Moosehead vacation!

  • 4 of 5

My boyfriend and I rented this cabin for 4 days and had an amazing time. It was clean and had everything we needed. It also gave the complete rustic feel for those happy with simple, camp life living. It's located very close to the town of Greenville, which we loved! The dirt road the cabin is located on is fairly quiet, with very minimal traffic. The water access was a huge plus for our dogs and is a short path away. We easily could have fit another couple for an intimate visit but with just the two of us and our two dogs, it was the perfect fit. The only thing that might been better was the grass was not short and we were worried about hanging out in the yard in regards to ticks. Other than that, we highly recommend Marion's property. We hope to be there again as her cabin and the location made us fall in love with Moosehead Lake!!

Moosehead Lake is Maine's premier lake region, offering great outdoor recreation and sports, including fishing, hunting, white water rafting, mountain biking, canoeing, hiking, wild life (moose) tours, and 'flightseeing' by seaplane. You can also enjoy a cruise on the lake on a vintage logging ship, the Katahdin. Spend some time in the Moosehead Marine Museum and learn the history of the lake, the 'Kate', and the logging industry in the region.

Take a short 30 minute drive north to the town of Rockwood where you will find Mt. Kineo. The once 1920's resort is now home to a 9-hole golf course tucked against the cliffs of the mountain, restaurants, cottages, and miles of hiking trails with breathtaking views of Moosehead Lake.

Visit the town of Greenville to enjoy the variety of restaurants (from fine dining to handmade pizzas and subs), specialty shops, and much more. After dinner, enjoy 'Desserts on the Verandah' at DKB's Catering or Gifford's ice cream at the Dairy Bar. Finish off the day with a relaxing walk along the water in Thoreau Park. On Friday evenings in July and August, meet at the Town's Gazebo and enjoy live music from local bands while you watch the sunset over the lake.

Enjoy hiking? This is the place for you! Miles and miles of hikes for all ages with magnificent views of Moosehead Lake and surrounding ponds. Hike...to the top of Big Moose (aka Squaw) Mountain, to the wreckage of a B-52 bomber on Elephant Mountain, to the fire tower on top of Mt. Kineo, to Gulf Hagas and Screw Auger Falls, or the conical peaks of Borestone Mountain.

'The International Sea Plane Fly-In' is held the weekend after Labor Day every year in Greenville. Hundreds of sea plane enthusiasts make this yearly pilgrimage to Moosehead Lake (Greenville) to display their planes, enjoy friendly flying competitions, and show off their flying expertise. Visit www.seaplanefly-in.org for more information.

Stop by the Visitor Center about 2 miles south of Greenville on Route 6 and 15 for up-to-date information about local attractions and events.
