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.

Awesome cottage with access to Moosehead lake
Moosehead Lake Vacation
The cabin is rustic and quaint. The back deck is a nice place to sit and enjoy the wooded area. Easy access to the boat dock and little beach (once you know how to find the beach). When we booked the cabin, we envisioned a remote location on Moosehead Lake. The cabin is located at the intersection of two roads in a development, and the two roads were busier than we expected. Unfortunately, the first two days of our stay were plagued with heavy equipment digging ditches on both sides of the cabin and dump trucks and construction vehicles traveling up and down both roads all day long. I do have a few suggestions for the property manager for future guests: 1) provide more than one garbage bag for the kitchen, 2) provide a more detailed list of items which are included (i.e bed linens, towels, toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, hand soap, bar soap), 3) put out ant traps, 4) provide a map to get to the beach, and 5) perform some repairs on the bathroom floor and walls behind the toilet as it appears there is or was water damage in the bathroom.
Fantastic! Thank you.
Quiet, clean and cozy
Attending local wedding, property was clean, accommodating to my family of 5. Room layout Is a little strange but functional. Only thing I would suggest is organizing your silverware in something that you would insert into a drawer. Knives toppled over one evening with my 3 yr old too close. Also-all the knives for chopping were too dull in the kitchen. Otherwise, access to the dock and little beach were nice! We really like Moosehead Lake and the region for fishing/swimming!
Thanks for leaving us a review, and we are so happy that you chose us to be a part of your time at 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.
