Greenville cabin description

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 25 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 convienent. Drinking water will be provided for you. 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. The extra $50 cleaning fee takes care of one or multiple dogs.

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.

Our prices have stayed the same as 2010. Please don't hesitate to email or call with any questions.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1992

                  About the owner: 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.

                  Why the Owner 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.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  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.
