Winter Moose Sightings in Greenville, Maine

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

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.

We have more than 18″ of new snow and many of the trails are open.  This could be you.  Take a ride from the lodge; we have easy access to the ITS and we are serving great winter suppers in Chloe’s pub on Friday & Saturday nights.  Enjoy a casual and social evening while dining on Hearty Chili Con Carne, Buffalo Short Rib Pie, BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches and even Crispy Crumb Coated Macaroni and Cheese Balls and don’t forget a signature Moosapolitan Martini.  See you soon.

Snow Fall at Moosehead Lodge

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

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.
