"Here is the cabin you've always searched for but never found. A magical secluded place right on Moosehead Lake with the amazing Mount Kineo in the front yard. The views from the deck are extraordinary. Then there's everything you need for a memorable time from the kayaks, a fire pit, a fully equipped kitchen and on top of that great books and music.
Ryan, the owner, was more than cordial. This is the first time we've rented a place that was better than advertised. Now, we are truly spoiled."

Total privacy; extremely quiet; peaceful retreat with only the sound of the river
"Think Retreat...this cabin is at the end of a very long dirt road (some potholes and ruts so take it slow) surrounded by woods and close enough to the river to be able to hear it. If you are looking for a place to rest and recoup, this is it. I personally feel it is the ideal romantic getaway. A perfect place for a writer and or artist or wildlife & nature photographer. A great place to be alone in thought. We never felt we had to leave the cabin. When laying in bed, look up and see the stars. The cabin is well equipped...I might suggest to bring a camping lantern or headlamps or any battery operated lamps...although they did have a few already there. The cabin runs on propane lights...I just happen to need or like alot of light for reading. Talking with Patricia over the phone seemed more like talking with an old friend. We spent most of our time in the large screened in porch, eating; making puzzles; playing scrabble; reading; resting on hammock, etc.
We drove an hour to go to the Pelletier's logging restaurant bar and grill, only to find out it had closed a month prior due to the economy...sad. We went across the street in Millinocket to the Schoodic Inn Restaurant instead and although it offered no atmosphere, the food was more than enough and was good. Baxter is definitely worth visiting and spending a day there, keep in mind, there is a fee to enter. We use to enjoy driving and then walking to Sandy Stream Pond to watch moose in the water...because it is a walk on wooden planks, I would not recommend it for people with disabilities. An hour and a half from cabin is also Bar Harbor and National Acadia Park...both worth visiting. Greenville near Moosehead Lake is a small tourist town and the Moosehead lake area is also where we would look for moose and also in Rockwood Maine.
Although we did not see any moose or deer, we did hear a deer call; an owl and coyotes. Saw a bear an hour away on the golden road/logging road near Baxter Park.
We hope to be able to return someday, maybe next time in the fall."

"We had a great vacation with our entire family at this awesome cabin...it had everything we wanted. The kids loved kayaking and swimming in the cove. Nights were spent making smores by the campfire and in the hot tub. We had one rainy day where the pool table and ping pong table in the basement came in handy. The only problem was the week went by too fast...we would definitely come back again !!!"
