Dog Sledding Adventures – Full and Half Day Trips Available

It’s March and around the vast Moosehead Lake is a thick blanket of beautiful white snow. Temperatures are still low, the lake is frozen hard and the sky is blue. It is perfect for romantic Maine winter getaways! If you enjoy the snow and looking for new adventures – make Moosehead Lake your destination!  All winter activities are still going strong with hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails at easy access from the Lodge at Moosehead Winter Getaway in Maine Lake.  We are the perfect location for couples looking to explore the remote terrain of mountains, lakes and ponds. If snowmobiling doesn’t tickle your fancy, there is the quiet of cross-country skiing or snowshoeing.  Rentals are available at a nominal fee and we have maps to get you started. Guides are also available to show you the way and teach you the nuances of this sport.  Only two hours away is Sugarloaf Mountain for some of the best downhill skiing in New England for a fun day trip.

The Lodge – a place for Romantic Getaways in Maine

Friday, February 7th, 2014

Looking for romance can find you at the Lodge at Moosehead Lake. Romance can be uncovered in many ways but at the Lodge we think it includes luxury and relaxation.  Many amenities have been added to create that special experience and the Katahdin suite has been noted as one of the most romantic.  It’s the King sleigh bed, two fireplaces (in the seating area and in the bathroom) makes it the perfect retreat for romantic getaways in Maine.  Add to that a double Jacuzzi style tub and flickering candle light and the frame of mind is set.   If you aren’t the romantic type but appreciate the mood, we have a list of ideas – from Champagne & strawberries, a relaxing massage for two or spend time on one of six private room decks gazing at the incredible stars on a clear night, snuggled together under a blanket.

The beauty of Moosehead Lake can be a special aphrodisiac.  Have a picnic lunch prepared with a bottle of wine for an escape to one of the areas beautiful waterfalls.  Watching the sunset over Moose Mountain with a bottle of wine and a charcuterie platter is another special option. Candlelight dinner in the lake view dining room overlooking Moosehead Lake and surrounding mountains is totally relaxing, not to mention the delicious food.
