Allagash Suite Honors Herb Cochran – Greenville, Maine

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

Every room at the Lodge at Moosehead Lake has been uniquely decorated to enable the guest to experience more of what the Maine North woods are all about. . all with love and great detail.  The Allagash suite is no exception. This suite was named after the late  Herb Cochran, who at the time lived next door and started the Allagash Canoe Trips along with his son Warren. The Christmas before he passed away, he gave the original Lodge owners, his  ”POLE” that he used on

these trips. The Allagash suite was named in his honor.  On the long inside wall halfway between the living room & bedroom area hangs this pole and suspended from it were several oars that were also given by folks from the Moosehead community.

Additional details includes the boom chains from which the beds are suspended.  These came from nearby Rockwood, Maine.

With the addition of the Lodge’s new poling canoe trip – guests can now experience an outdoor skill that has been almost lost.  Step back in time and find hidden spots in this remote region only accessible through your canoe and a pole.  At the Lodge, it is all about the authentic Maine woods experience – in true luxury.

Take a ride on a chartered float plane from Greenville to the Penobscot River. From the plane you will see that Lobster Lake is shaped like a Lobster claw. After skipping to a halt on the water, you will be met by a private guide who will direct you (he will expect you to do the rowing since he is, after all, just the “guide”) down the river to Lobster Lake. Learn about the wildlife, history and nature that surrounds you. Upon disembarking from your canoe, you will be met by the Lodge’s chef. Enjoy a leisurely lunch on the shore and then fly back to Greenville and relive your adventure over a complimentary cocktail at Chloe’s Pub.
