About Richard Deslongchamps
Here at Moosetracks we try to do only one thing and do that well: We provide our guests with comfortable, clean, reasonably priced vacation cottages in a serene pond-side setting. Our guests enjoy spacious fully equipped rustically modern cottages surrounded by acres of private woodlands, wildlife habitat and mountain scenery. All this and only a few minutes from Greenville and all the recreational activities the area has to offer.
Why Richard Deslongchamps chose Northwest Piscataquis
Small towns are unique in that everyone knows everyone and everyone looks out for everyone else. There was a natural gravitation towards Greenville for that reason. Here we know our neighbors, people wave at each other when passing on the road.
What makes this Cabin unique
Started in late winter of 2001 and finished in the fall, our second cabin, Prong Mountain was a copy of our first and was designed to be a vacation rental retreat from the start. We modified a log home plan to give us an open sunny space with a nook and crannies look overhead. Of course a modern vacation cottage had to have central heating, full bath and fully equipped kitchen. Furnishing a “North Woods” cabin required a combination of campy and rustic cedar furniture. There is a collection of hand crafted birdhouses displayed above the kitchen cabinets. The real uniqueness of this property is that over 90% of our ponds shoreline can never be developed thanks to conservation minded land owners. These same landowners allow us to maintain marked trails thru the woods for hiking, snowshoeing and wildlife viewing. Although we are only 6 miles from town the feeling of the pond and woods along with the wildlife makes one think you are much more remote.

Very well appointed and comfortable cottage. It was roomy and the indoor/outdoor living experience was terrific. We had a nice view from the back porch. We totally enjoyed using the on site canoes on the pond.
Clean, Private, Serenity
Peace and tranquility
Very quiet. Very relaxing. Took the kayak out several times. Plenty of nearby hiking trails. Nearby town of Greenville has lots to see and do.
Charming cabin in a serene setting
We had a great time at Prong Mountain Cabin! When you pull in the front entrance to the cabin is unimpressive. However, when you step inside you are greeted by a warm and cozy North Woods cabin. The photos in the description do not do the cabin justice. The beds are all soft and comfortable, and the cabin is very clean. Kitchen counter space is limited but we were able to make do as the large dining table is near by. Be aware that no pantry items are provided, so be sure to bring your own condiments and spices. A lobster pot is provided, however no claw crackers or mini forks are so if lobster is on the menu like it was for us be prepared to bring your own or make do. Also if lobster is on the menu the price at the Indian Trading Post grocery store is the cheapest in town (8.99lb at time of our stay), alternatively stop in Portland on the way to the cabin and buy your lobsters there for 5.99lb also enjoy the Portland head lighthouse. The rear porch is a great place to sip your morning coffee or enjoy an evening libation while listening to the loons calling. Access to the pond via the trail and pier is quick and easily accessible. The canoe and Kayak provide an easy way to tour Prong Pond, which is very large by the way. The pond is also full of fish eager to bite a spinning lure or nightcrawler. We caught white perch and smallmouth bass ranging in size from 2 inches long to about 20 inches long. It was a lot of fun! The fire pit is a great evening diversion and is only a short walk from the cabin. If this is your first time to the area be forewarned... bring lots of bug spray!! The Mosquitoes are relentless, but they do not like Off bug spray!! Overall we had a great time, the cabin was everything it is advertised to be and then some. Michael the caretaker is very knowledgeable of the local area and was around frequently at the time of our stay taking care of the lawn. If you want a true North Woods vacations (Hopefully without "Uncle Roman" showing up) this is the place for you.
Fun family getaway!
Our cabin was clean, had everything we needed, and was perfect for us! We also had family members staying in one of the other Moosetrack family cabins. It was great to have such easy access to water and convenient to have the cabins right nearby. I'd highly recommend this rental for families, young and old, and personally hope to visit there again!
Perfect cabin on a quiet pond
My husband and I loved our stay at the cabin. The location was perfect, and we saw a moose more than once on the drive in from the main road. The cabin was very clean and well equipped. We look forward to the chance to return!!
As you leave the endless traffic lights, strip malls and Wal-Marts behind, you will travel thru lightly populated rural Maine to Greenville. Once here you are now in a small outpost town at the edge of the 'Great North Woods'. It is different here; small shops, plaid flannel shirt diners and a couple of wilderness outfitters. Around you are Maine's largest lakes and numerous smaller ponds along with the headwaters of several notable rivers including the Allagash. Mt. Katahdin, just to our north, anchors the northern end of the Appalachian Mtn. chain. Surrounding you are several million acres of working forests, home to the 'American Loggers'. The only traffic jams here are for moose sightings. And this is a recreational wonderland; canoeing/kayaking, white water rafting, hiking, climbing, ATV and snowmobile trails, not to mention fishing, hunting and wildlife viewing. We will refer you to our website for detailed turn by turn directions to Prong Mountain Cabin when needed.
