Take a look for yourself;

This photo which could be a postcard was taken by Joanne Lauder while having breakfast at the Lodge. Even in the winter, the views are truly amazing. This pristine beauty is still available in special places in the US – one being Moosehead Lake.

We take the environment seriously at the Lodge. When you stay with us, you can be comfortable knowing that the Lodge is heated with an outdoor wood furnace. Wood is an abundant renewable resource in this area. Rebuilding decks includes composite decking material from recycled milk cartons that look great and last a lifetime. Water conservation is also important including new laundry and dishwashers that use only a gallon of water per load, not to mention our weekly recycling program for glass, plastic, cans, etc.
The lodge offers Eco Tours including background on the ecology of the plants, trees, wildlife, Indian facts and legends, the lumber era and the routes the famous naturalist Henry David Thoreau. Enjoy canoeing/kayaking, hiking, snowshoeing – minimal motors on this trip.

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.
