Sled dog teams race up the lake, crossing Lily Bay Road and jumping on the trail that connects to the 100 Mile Wilderness area over Appalachian Mountain Club Camp to Camp Ski Trails and Plum Creek Timberland Property.
Many Viewing points, one of the best being at West Branch Pond Camps in Frenchtown Township. Easy access downtown at Warden Service in Greenville at race start. For more info and map check out our website and come back to the Lodge for a Cozy Winter Weekend that includes a full breakfast and a winter supper.
Viewing Moose is the primary reason tourists come to the Moosehead area. We often think that Moose viewing is good in the spring through fall, but look moose in winter, too. Whether you are snowmobiling, snowshoeing or skiing across the beautiful North woods – look out for moose. You may just have a pleasant surprise.

Yesterday, almost 10″ of snow came to the Lodge at Moosehead Lake. Here is our view this morning from the Lodge. Are you thinking about your winter getaway? Look for the new winter suppers the Lodge will be offering. Have a wonderful day relaxing in the great outdoors and then enjoy a cozy winter evening in Chloe’s Pub with suppers featuring Up North Cuisine.
We returned from Thanksgiving holiday to be greeted by over 5″ of snow at Moosehead Lake. It was a torturous last five miles fish tailing up Lily Bay Road – we hadn’t put the snow tires on yet! The next few weeks will be filled with decorating projects to prepare for our holiday guests. Be sure to make your reservations now. We are planning a great NYE dinner and with the snow, all kinds of activities will be available.
Young eagles had just flown away leaving this parent to watch below. Eagles are often spotted at Moosehead Lake – a wondorous site for sure.
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.
