Mad Moose

  • 5 of 5

This place was FANTASTIC. It had everything that you could ask for. The place was great, the yard was enormus, and the scenery was breathtaking. I would recommend it to everybody who asked me about it. I am renting it again next year, and in the future. For the money, you couldn't ask for more.

Truly Memorable Week

  • 4 of 5

Today is the start of our second week back to work since staying at The Mad Moose, and I don't think any of us have stopped thinking about our vacation, or wishing we were still there! We had a truly amazing time the week of the Fourth of July. It was our first vacation together as two families becoming one, and we couldn't have asked for a better week. The cabin was a very pleasant surprise, as the pictures don't do it justice on size. There was plenty of room for the five of us, plus our Golden Retriever, Roman. The lake itself was stunning, very spacious, but also very quiet (3 boats total on the 4th). The fishing was AMAZING, and probably our overall favorite part, with a total for 43 Large Mouth Bass, and 1 Pickerel. Paula was very helpful, and easy to reach. She made this first time experience very comfortable. Roman, our 6yr old Golden, spent the entire week in the lake, and eventually out on the floating dock with the kids, after figuring out how to climb the ladder to join them. I think he slept the entire first week we were home! I will cherish the memories of this time with my furry best friend more than words can say. The local stores had kind of slim pickings for stocking up, but were convenient, and Hannaford was about 35min away. The only reason we gave a 4 out of 5, is due to the yard being very flooded/muddy. Although this is not a reflection on The Mad Moose or our stay, it is something to be aware of in rainy months. It also made it really hard to keep up on keeping the floors clean! Lots of sweeping :) Despite that small detail, we are all in agreement that we will be coming back to The Mad Moose, and look forward to it!! Thanks again, Paula, you and your camp have given us an amazing memory that we will not soon forget!

Amanda, Dave, Tim, Libby, Katie, and Roman!!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you need a week to RELAX this is the place. Our family has two boys 10 and 11 plus our dog Elvis and we all had a great time. The cottage is clean and cute. It is exactly like it is described. The owner was helpful and organized. We kayaked, fished, walked, biked, swam and read books. The sunsets ended the day with breathtaking beauty. Don't forget to stargaze at night because you feel like you see to the next galaxy. I would recommend this to a friend.

Great Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our young family of 5 (two small children and 1 dog) stayed at the Mad Moose August 2010 for one truly enjoyable week.

The cabin is nicley laid out (with living area at one end and the children's bedroom at the opposite end), a clean kitchen and bathroom - with a bathtub!

But the best part is the wide sandy beach and shallow entry into the water. Our 3 year old was in heaven as he played with his "diggers" and waded in the knee high surf.

I highly recommend this property for young families. It is close enough to the attractions in North Conway (45 min) and Storyland (1 hour), but remote enough to feel like you are really getting away from it all.

My wife, five children and I spent a wonderful week at the Mad Moose in mid July 2009. Nothing but fun and sun...and the fish... The fishing is just second to none. Everyone caught fish from my 3 year old on up...With the record 8+ lbs bass that I caught topping off the week. We had a wonderful vacation with tons of great memories including my 5 year old son learning to snorkel for the first time. Thanks so much for the Mad Moose!

Just Mad about this cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at the Mad Moose. The lake is nice and quiet and the location is close to many attractions; North Conway, Mt. Washington and Bridgeton. The cottage itself is cozy and the beach is clean and sandy with a long gradual entry that is perfect for children. An added plus was that we could take our dogs with us so they could enjoy a great vacation as well.
