Destination guide

Spotting moose in Maine

The small town of Greenville lies on the southern tip of Moosehead Lake, the largest body of water in the state, stretching for almost 40 miles. The town swells in population during the summer months, with visitors descending upon the area to hike around the lake, go fishing, and stay in one of the Greenville vacation rentals. It's not called Moosehead for nothing, and the area is one of the best places to spot these gentle giants in Maine. The annual Moose Mainea festival honors these beasts with activities like moose calling, guided moose safaris, and moose cuisine.

Things to do

Activities and attractions in Greenville

Do you want to discover attractions to visit in the area? Although it can be tempting to stay in your comfortable vacation rental, you'll want to experience everything that makes Greenville a fun place to get away. Here are some of the most popular attractions to put on your list, all within 30 miles (48.2 km) of the city center:

  • Big Squaw Mountain Ski Resort (6.2 mi / 10.1 km)
  • Borestone Mountain (9.1 mi / 14.6 km)

Adventure all year round

If you are lucky enough to nab one of the Greenville vacation rentals, then setting off to explore the lake is a must. Several adventure companies offer a range of activities taking guests on guided hiking trips, kayaking excursions, and fishing adventures. If you have deep pockets, consider taking a flight to the more remote areas of the lake by seaplane and enjoy aerial views over the countryside. During the winter, the lake freezes over and the landscape of glistening snow and ice lends itself well to cross-country skiing, skating, and dogsledding trips.


An area with distinct seasons

The climate here is typical of the Maine highlands. Spring is warm and sunny, though the evenings are still chilly. Being so much quieter than the high season, this is a great time for spotting wildlife. During summer, weekenders come to town to swim and hike around the lake. Fall is the low season, though it's still a wonderfully peaceful and colorful time to explore the area. Tourism picks up again during the winter months when the lake is frozen over and a whole host of snowy adventure activities are on offer.
