Window boxes adorning the Lodge are in full bloom this summer. This picture is of an early summer morning light.
Mother, son, daughter, daughter-in-law and grand daughter all stayed at the lodge to celebrate the completion of the Appalachian trail by the grandson. They are all avid hikers and wanted to experience what their grandson was experiencing as he finished this momentous goal at Katahdin. In the process they came across other hikers as well. A couple of young men had very bad equipment including broken hiking sticks. This group, replaced their polls and they were off for more adventure. The next day, they came across a hiker that was very sick. They took him to the local hospital to find out he had pneumonia. They got him antibiotics and a hotel room for the night. This group was truly Trail Angels and I’m sure angels no matter where they go. We welcome them back to Moosehead any time.
The temperatures have cooled and no humidity makes it feel a little like fall. It is to warm next week but for now it’s a great break for outdoor enthusiasts from southern states looking to escape the intense summer “heat”. Join us for relaxation and all the pampering you can take at the Lodge at Moosehead Lake. These panoramic views are from the lodge deck and the front drive.
Lodge guests enjoyed breakfast on the patio overlooking this view this morning. It was in the 70s with bright blue sky. A full breakfast bar featuring fresh fruit, juices, cereal and fresh made banana bread started their meal with a bacon, broccoli and cheese frittata to get them on their way to a fun filled day of moose watching, hiking, rafting and so much more.
