Duygu is one of the Lodge’s Room Attendants. She and Songul (left) are here for the summer from Turkey practicing their English and enjoying the guests from all over the world. To their delight, they found we use Turkish towels – some of the finest cotton in the world, lots of big white fluffy towels in every room.
Tables are readied for guest breakfast on the deck by Songul. It’s a beautiful summer morning at the Lodge at Moosehead Lake and guests love to eat outside. These young ladies have been able to learn about the Moosehead Lake area. They have taken a white water rafting trip, Moose Safari, Katahdin Cruise, state fair, enjoyed the beach and much more. Both plan to be English teachers in their homeland.

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

Every room at the Lodge at Moosehead Lake has been uniquely decorated to enable the guest to experience more of what the Maine North woods are all about. . all with love and great detail. The Allagash suite is no exception. This suite was named after the late Herb Cochran, who at the time lived next door and started the Allagash Canoe Trips along with his son Warren. The Christmas before he passed away, he gave the original Lodge owners, his “POLE” that he used on
these trips. The Allagash suite was named in his honor. On the long inside wall halfway between the living room & bedroom area hangs this pole and suspended from it were several oars that were also given by folks from the Moosehead community.
Additional details includes the boom chains from which the beds are suspended. These came from nearby Rockwood, Maine.
With the addition of the Lodge’s new poling canoe trip – guests can now experience an outdoor skill that has been almost lost. Step back in time and find hidden spots in this remote region only accessible through your canoe and a pole. At the Lodge, it is all about the authentic Maine woods experience – in true luxury.

Dog sledding trips from the lodge have been very popular this winter. With plenty of snow and trails in great condition; this has been a full filled activity. Guests have not only come back talking about sledding but this year, they are greeted by a batch of puppies. You can see they are enjoying the new puppies as much as the trip. There is still plenty of time to take in winter activities from the Lodge at Moosehead Lake.

Guests at the Lodge at Moosehead Lake celebrated 2012 with a five-course dinner and a private concert by David Mallet. Some came with friends, made new ones and others were return guests to the lodge. It was a great night to remember. Even Chloe got private time with the famous musician and songwriter! If you are interested in such an amazing evening, book your New Year’s Eve for 2013 soon.
