MOOSE SAFARI & WILDLIFE TOURS

Leave our Greenville Maine bed and breakfast, you’ll drive about 30 minutes into the back country where canoes are waiting. Just imagine paddling on a pristine pond, sighting a large “rock” and then with a loud swish a massive head springs from the water and looks directly at you…it’s a thrill you’ll never forget.
