Winter Moose Sightings in Greenville, Maine

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

Viewing Moose is the primary reason tourists come to the Moosehead area.  We often think that Moose viewing is good in the spring through fall, but look moose in winter, too.  Whether you are snowmobiling, snowshoeing or skiing across the beautiful North woods – look out for moose.  You may just have a pleasant surprise.

The lodge has an over 500 VHS and DVD movie library.  Recently added was the award winning Julie and Julia with Meryl Streep.  This is a fun movie to watch in the comfort of your room.  Every room at the lodge has their own VHS/DVD players.

We have more than 18″ of new snow and many of the trails are open.  This could be you.  Take a ride from the lodge; we have easy access to the ITS and we are serving great winter suppers in Chloe’s pub on Friday & Saturday nights.  Enjoy a casual and social evening while dining on Hearty Chili Con Carne, Buffalo Short Rib Pie, BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches and even Crispy Crumb Coated Macaroni and Cheese Balls and don’t forget a signature Moosapolitan Martini.  See you soon.
