Recent Moosehead Lake vacation rental reviews

Plenty of room (and more to spare) with our family of five: 2 adults and 3 children (ages 3, 8, 10). The lake house was clean and well taken care of inside. Essentials like dishwashing pods, laundry soap, paper products, towels, and shower toiletries were stocked for us. We loved the wood beams and open floor plan. Our youngest loved the outdoorsy décor, especially the moose in one of the bedrooms! The property was gorgeous as well. Plenty of space to park and a huge yard to enjoy. We arrived during a snowstorm, but the property owners made sure to have the drive & walkways clear for us. We used the fire pit, which offers an unmatched view of the lake and mountains. We also played board games on the kitchen table and loved hanging out on the comfy sectional couch. The property owners live next door; they are very friendly and made sure everything went well with our visit. We felt very welcomed! We would have loved to stay longer, maybe forever! We’ll be back to this beautiful place; it was the perfect spot to rest and recharge.

A super clean, cozy, well equipped cabin. Nice intimate get away location. Super satisfied with entire stay.

Location is great for winter sports provided the snow does not melt before you get t o your vacation. This house is great as we have stayed there last year as well. Shout out to the cleaning crew. The house is decorated nicely and the bedding is great!

Where is Moosehead Lake?

Measuring nearly 40 miles in length and encompassing 74,890 acres of islands, inlets, and coves, Moosehead Lake sits in the Longfellow Mountains of Maine's wild north woods. As the largest single-state lake east of the Mississippi River, Moosehead Lake features hundreds of miles of shoreline and waterfront towns that include Greenville in the south, Ogontz and Seboomook in the north, Moosehead and Rockwood to the west, and Beaver Cove to the east. From this point on the western edge of Maine's famous 100 Mile Wilderness, you'll be only 70 miles northwest of Bangor, 150 miles north of historic downtown Portland, and 265 miles east of Montreal.

Things to Do at Moosehead Lake

Thanks to their incredible access to the lake's sparkling shores, our Moosehead Lake vacation rentals are ideal for fishing, boating, hiking, observing wildlife, and practicing a variety of summer and winter sports.

The peak boating season runs between Memorial Day and early September, with boat launches available at Greenville Junction Wharf, Rockwood Town Landing, Lily Bay State Park, and Seboomook. Bring your sailboat, canoe, kayak, or fishing boat and spend your days swimming and fishing for brook trout, lake trout, and salmon. May and June are also a wonderful time to glimpse the local resident moose at dusk and dawn, whether you join a guided moose-watching safari or take a scenic drive to Kokadjo, Lazy Tom Bog, or Mt. Kineo.

Choose from an incredible variety of summer hiking trails, which include the easy paths through Lily Bay State Park and Moxie Falls, the 1.5-mile Little Kineo Mountain Trail that overlooks Mt. Katahdin, and the more challenging ascent of Big Spencer Mountain. Just be sure to keep your eyes and ears open for black bears, otters, pileated and black-backed woodpeckers, herons, and eagles.

Come wintertime, the lake (which reaches a maximum depth of 246 feet) is popular for ice fishing, while the surrounding woods offer more than 100 miles of groomed cross-country ski trails and ungroomed snowshoe paths. Test your snowmobiling and ice climbing skills, watch the famous Wilderness Dog Sled Race each February, and spend a day or two at Big Moose Mountain in Greenville to ski and snowboard a total of 30 downhill trails.

Day Trips from Moosehead Lake

Whether you're in search of renowned hiking trails, leisurely drives, or memorable outdoor adventures, you'll find them all within a day trip of our Moosehead Lake vacation rentals.

Book a guided whitewater rafting excursion on the Dead, Kennebec, or Penobscot Rivers, or check an item off your bucket list by visiting Mt. Katahdin, the tallest peak in Maine. Experienced hikers can complete the strenuous 5.2-mile ascent of Katahdin's summit, which is also the terminus of the world-famous Appalachian Trail. The surrounding Baxter State Park, which sits 80 miles northeast of Moosehead Lake, offers more than 200,000 acres of secluded forest wilderness.
