Memorable Adventures on Lobster Lake

Wednesday, August 1st, 2007

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.
