Two travel writers from “Alright, I’m Wrong” spent a day and evening at the Lodge this week. They were from the southern Maine, Portsmouth, NH area. Here is their review of the Lodge at Moosehead Lake. We couldn’t of asked for more, except maybe let us know they were going to take “our” picture, too. Enjoy the article.
Our first snow fell on October 24, 2008. It didn’t last but it looks like winter is right around the corner. Pictured is the Lodge driveway and loads of wood ready for winter. If you are thinking about joining us for a winter holiday or vacation click here. Special getaway packages are available that save between 10 and 25% off summer rates. Hope to see you soon.
The recent installation of an outdoor wood furnace is part of the Lodge’s commitment to “Go Green” where ever we can. This unit will allow us to greatly reduce our dependence on heating oil and control heating costs. The original oil burning system remains available as a backup.
The outdoor furnace is tucked away in a small grove of spruce trees. Out of sight, but conveniently close to the Lodge. The growing pile of slit firewood is testimony to some honest labor in the crisp north woods air. Guests tell us the occasional smell of the wood fire adds to the Lodge ambience.
This week the lake has been wonderful. The pictures are of an excursion we took with a friend’s sailboat on Moosehead Lake. The lake is 20 miles x 40 miles, plenty of space for sailing and what wonderful sights we see, from cabins, many islands, loons, geese, motor craft and much more.
