"This comfortable home overlooking Beaver Cove/Moosehead Lake is a perfect place for people who want to enjoy the restaurants and shops and outdoor activities in and near Greenville, while also savoring the serenity of quiet mornings and evenings overlooking the water. The other reviewers all accurately describe the great amenities and comforts of the house, so I'll focus on all the fun things you can do within a short distance of the house, that is, when you can pull yourself away from watching fawns explore the yard and bed down in the tall grass, watching their mother relax in the raised bed against the house, listening to the loons, and enjoying the meanderings of a wild turkey. We enjoyed a 3-hour cruise on the 1914 steamboat Kathadin to view the July 3 fireworks, visited the January 1963 still-intact crash site of a huge B-52 plane that crashed into Elephant Mtn. during an Air Force training exercise, spotted a moose during a moose safari canoe trip with Northwoods Outfitters, bought some wine from the Spotted Cat Winery (flavored with fresh fruits and even parsnips), took the quick boat shuttle in Rockwood to Mt. Kineo and then hiked 2 miles to the top of the bluff, and enjoyed eating at the Stress Free Moose Pub and Cafe and Kelly's Landing. We also went swimming down in Beaver Cove and took a couple of shoreline hikes at beautiful Lily Bay State Park. We took a day trip over to Moxie Falls on the other side of Greenville and had lunch in The Forks and an ice cream at the trading post in Jackman. We ran out of time and sunshine before we could get up to Baxter State Park to hike Sentinel Mtn. and look over to Mt. Katahdin. There are so many things to do in this area! So we plan to return some day to this very house. And it was so easy to work with Rebecca - she was always super prompt in answering all my questions during the reservation process. Highly recommend this rental."
