It was time to update the website. We wanted something unique, like the property itself, and we think we got it. We were able to combine video and photo sequencing to create a distinctive first impression. From our own research, we knew what was the most important to guests and that’s where our priorities started. Even online reservations changed. It’s now real-time like all the big hotels. Take a look for yourself;

The garden patios from the Carriage House suites have been updated and remodeled with slate embedded in small stones. The picture is the Katahdin Suite garden. Each garden has areas to add annual flowers in the spring for color and easy access to a pathway leading to the yard overlooking Moosehead Lake and surrounding mountains.

Found in the basement of the carriage house was the copper moose without his antlers. Dennis welded the antlers, polished him up and fixed the base. Now it is back where it belongs, looking out over Moosehead Lake and directing you to the sunset and wonders of the north woods.

The small trees lining the driveway have been replaced with these birch corner fence trims. See the process above. It now matches other fences and should last through the cold Maine winters. We hope you enjoy the new look.

This Luna Moth was seen at the Lodge last week. Luna moths are one of the most unusual and beautiful of the North American moths known as Saturnidae. They are well known for their green-yellow colors and long tails,and although they are often seen in pictures, they are a real surprise when found in nature. Although they are common throughout the eastern U.S., their night flying habits and short life span as an adult moth, only about 1 week, combine to make them a rare find. The luna moth, with a wingspan of 4.5-5.0 inches, is one of the largest moths in North America and is very common in many of the eastern states from Maine all the way to Florida. They usually are seen less as you go westward to Texas and the Great Plains. It is also found in southern regions of many Canadian provinces such as Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, and Saskachewan.
