Moosehead Lake from a visitors seaplane ride looks like the head of a Moose. Can you see it? This picture was taken last week as a guest took a ride with Jack’s Air Service, right here in Greenville, Maine. The lake is 20 miles by 40 miles and is the largest instate lake east of the Mississippi River. Taking a seaplane ride is one of two very popular activities for vacationers. The other activity is of course a Moose Safari. Moose can also be spotted from the air, with a keen eye.

This week the lake has been wonderful. The pictures are of an excursion we took with a friend’s sailboat on Moosehead Lake. The lake is 20 miles x 40 miles, plenty of space for sailing and what wonderful sights we see, from cabins, many islands, loons, geese, motor craft and much more.
Memorable Adventure #1
In one very special day you can experience the vast North Woods of Maine and Moosehead Lake through an exclusive trip offered only by the Lodge. 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.
