What makes for a great night’s sleep?

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

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:

  1. The very best mattresses money can buy – no kidding. Dennis & Chloe try each one out personally.
  2. 500 plus thread count sheets, pressed as smooth as silk. Close your eyes and imagine crawling in.  Great sensation.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

Allagash Suite Honors Herb Cochran – Greenville, Maine

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

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.

Dining Schedule at the Lodge at Moosehead Lake

Monday, August 30th, 2010

This season, we have changed the Lodge dining schedule.  We serve dinner only in the Lakeview Dining Room to our lodging guests and we accept a limited number of  reservations from the public.  This has allowed us to focus on providing a premium dining experience.  The menu is Ala Carte and focuses on Up North Cuisine, casual, warm and comfortable, like the Lodge itself.  When weather permits, we also serve on the deck under the stars.  Chloe’s Pub is not open to the public but remains available to lodging guests along with the newly constructed fire pit.  Around the fire pit, guests can order a “Smores” kit, enjoy an outdoor wood fire and watch the stars dazzle against a black sky.

Trail Angels stay at the Lodge at Moosehead Lake

Friday, August 13th, 2010

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.
