At the Lodge we take a good night’s sleep very seriously. We know are guests are often a little stressed, over worked and need to decompress. Retreat to our cozy Maine lodge and drift away to dreamland in our luxury suites. Here is what you can expect:
- The very best mattresses money can buy – no kidding. Dennis & Chloe try each one out personally.
- 500 plus thread count sheets, pressed as smooth as silk. Close your eyes and imagine crawling in. Great sensation.
- Take a deep breath – that‘s fresh, clean air with a hint of pine. A wonderful smell. No scented soap or fabric softeners at the Lodge.
- Open your windows on a summer night and feel the cool lake air on your face. A good night’s sleep should also include a cool room.
- And while those windows are open, you will hear almost nothing. Such amazing quiet. Maybe the sound of a loon calling to its mate.
That is all. Then you drift off.

These photos were taken this morning at the start of the 100 mile dog sled race in Greenville, Maine. They will end their trip at the Fish & Wildlife offices with a bonfire and celebrate the winners. The dogs were beautiful and ready to run. The guide used at the lodge was participating and the conditions were perfect. Be sure to schedule a once in a lifetime experience when you stay at the lodge this winter.

If you see a gold moosehead on the back of a SUV, it’s probably us. This vehicle is great for the North woods of Maine and the tire cover makes it fun.

Enjoy the natural beauty of the North woods fall foliage and the solitude of a canoe ride on a remote mountain pond. This special four hour trip during September and early October starts with a walking trail to the pond where a canoe has been stored for your ride. Our own Registered Maine guide will provide area stories and wildlife knowledge. Paddle through the quiet beauty listening to the water drop from your paddle and loons call through the air. It is a respite you’ll long remember. Call the lodge 207-695-4400 to reserve your trip with a lodging stay.

This is a common question by many guests so we are going to take this blog post to answer it. The lodge became a country inn in 1995. Our goal is to offer discerning travelers the opportunity to surround themselves with authentic North woods décor, cuisine, and a full slate of comforts and amenities. The original owners started down this path and we wanted to bring this back adding some of our own touches as well. We stay in every room throughout the year just to be sure it is comfortable and not missing something. Some of our changes are here:
- New 2-bedroom suite “Mt. Kineo” that can accommodate 2 couples or teenage children, etc.
- New Katahdin bathroom with enlarged tile shower, floor, double Jacuzzi-style tub and new vanity
- New parking lot within easy access of the suites
- New septic system
- Drainage system around the lodge
- Remodeled dining room with bench seating
- New white cedar fencing around the parking areas
- New website with real time availability and booking engine.
- New HD TVs in the Bear, Moose, and Allagash Suite
- Compact refrigerators added to the Loon and Totem rooms
- New Keurig single serve coffee makers in the suites
- New CD clock radios in the suites with MP3 player plug-ins
- New white towels that are Egyptian cotton in the suites and Turkish cotton in the lodge rooms.
- New luxury chocolate brown bathrobes
- New patio umbrellas
- Front porch rebuilt
- New covered dining entrance
- New roof on the lodge
- Newly designed amenities for all the rooms
- New glassware for bar and dining
- Redesigned and landscaped gardens throughout the lodge property
- New window treatments, custom shower curtains, duvets and some reupholstered chairs in the Moose, Baxter Suite, Totem, Trout, and Mt. Kineo suite. This winter will be doing the Loon and Bear rooms.
- New “Up North Cuisine” dinner menu based on guest input – more casual, flexible and continues the warm comfortable feeling of the lodge.
- Martini Menu including the Mooseopolitan™ Martini.
- Wood burning furnace that heats the lodge and water to save on oil use.
- Resource of hiking trails in each room
- Annual guest surveys to see how we are doing and identify opportunities.

Family and friends have told us for years that our home was warm and inviting. This is what drew us to the Lodge. It is great to share with so many!

Mother, son, daughter, daughter-in-law and grand daughter all stayed at the lodge to celebrate the completion of the Appalachian trail by the grandson. They are all avid hikers and wanted to experience what their grandson was experiencing as he finished this momentous goal at Katahdin. In the process they came across other hikers as well. A couple of young men had very bad equipment including broken hiking sticks. This group, replaced their polls and they were off for more adventure. The next day, they came across a hiker that was very sick. They took him to the local hospital to find out he had pneumonia. They got him antibiotics and a hotel room for the night. This group was truly Trail Angels and I’m sure angels no matter where they go. We welcome them back to Moosehead any time.
