Ice fishing can be fast and furious on Moosehead Lake. It was a great year for Trout. Ice houses were set up in January and will be off by the end of March. The Lodge’s quick access to the lake by snowmobile makes it easy to experiment with this unique Maine sport and still enjoy the luxuries of the Lodge.
Memorable Adventure #1
In one very special day you can experience the vast North Woods of Maine and Moosehead Lake through an exclusive trip offered only by the Lodge. Take a ride on a chartered float plane from Greenville to the Penobscot River. From the plane you will see that Lobster Lake is shaped like a Lobster claw. After skipping to a halt on the water, you will be met by a private guide who will direct you (he will expect you to do the rowing since he is, after all, just the “guide”) down the river to Lobster Lake. Learn about the wildlife, history and nature that surrounds you. Upon disembarking from your canoe, you will be met by the Lodge’s chef. Enjoy a leisurely lunch on the shore and then fly back to Greenville and relive your adventure over a complimentary cocktail at Chloe’s Pub.

The Lodge at Moosehead Lake, is one of Moosehead Lake’s most accommodating lodges, and its staff welcomes Snowmobilers taking a winter snowmobiling vacation. “The Lodge” is one of few area inns offering snowmobilers direct access to the snowmobile trails from the lodge’s front door. The Greenville area has numerous restaurants offering a wide range of dining options, from fast food to family style or fine dining, and the area’s riding opportunities are endless.
It is a 164 round trip around the lake on the Moosehead Trail. There are restaurants and fuel stops along the way, and this route is marked with its own distinct trail signs featuring a moose head. Throughout the Moosehead Lake Region, snowmobiler’s will travel on well-groomed and well-marked trails that connect with Maine’s ITS. If they prefer, they can ride on logging roads and forge their own paths through fresh snow.
Our licensed Registered Maine Guides have grown up in the Moosehead Lake Region and have many years of snowmobile experience. Whether your interest is in cruising the groomed trails or setting a track to remote scenic areas, our guides will provide an experience you will not soon forget. A trail side cookout is included with your trip or you can snowmobile to a nearby restaurant.
From May 1 – October 30th, Dinner is served Friday through Monday at half hour seatings starting at 6:00 pm. Our last seating is at 8:00 pm. The remainder of the year we are open on Friday and Saturday. On our “off” nights we will help you select from Greenville’s local eateries. The lodge is closed in April.

As you enter Maine from the South, your first shopping stop would be the Kittery Outlets (which we personally prefer). An hour up I-95 is Freeport . . . you guessed it L.L. BEAN. While in Freeport if hunger strikes . . . start your North Woods experience by snacking at the Broad Arrow Tavern (another personal favorite!!) at the Harraseeket Inn. Once in Greenville you’ll find a variety of shops…rustic antiques to casual clothing. And, here at the Lodge you’ll find Miss Elaine E. Moose’s Moo-see-um, a moosterly arranged miscellaneum of take home gifts! If you are traveling to or from the White Mountains, you’ll find great Outlet Shopping in North Conway which is tax free. Keep in mind that the majority of merchants will ship for you . . . be sure to ask! We do & they should.
By all means YES!!!!! You can spend the days lounging on our decks or patios and being waited on hand & foot! Lily Bay State Park offers a pebble beach, b-b-q grills, and easy walking trails. The Katahdin an old boom steamer offers 3 hour lake excursions. You may even want to take an aerial tour of the lake via a “float plane”. In the village, you’ll find 7-8 interesting shops to browse through. Then there is nothing more enjoyable than our evening sound & light show……magnificent sunsets fade into clear skies filled with millions of stars, the fireflies light up our field, and in the background you’ll hear the Loons calling out to you…..The simple pleasures of life at The Lodge at Moosehead Lake.
