What makes for a great night’s sleep?

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

At the Lodge we take a good night’s sleep very serious.  We know are guests are often a little stressed, over worked and need to decompress.  Here is what we offer at the Lodge:

  1. The very best mattresses money can buy – no kidding. Dennis & Chloe try each one out personally.
  2. 500 plus thread count sheets, pressed as smooth as silk. Close your eyes and imagine crawling in.  Great sensation.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

Moose Bath Room Upgrade

Saturday, January 22nd, 2011

Just completed – the Moose bathroom upgrade.  A new vanity was built using rustic wood with inlaid birch and New England red slate counter top.  A compact refrigerator has also been built in for our guests’ convenience.  The larger counter gives us room to add a new K-cup coffee maker as well.  Similar upgrades are being completed in the Bear room.  Soon, most of our rooms will have these new amenities.

Fall Canoe Trips from the Lodge at Moosehead Lake

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

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.
