A note from your hosts:: For your stress free vacation nestled among the birch, fir, and spruce trees, McIver's Lakeshore Cottages is a summer playground in the big Maine Woods for those who love the outdoors. Here in this peaceful setting sportsmen and vacationers alike find relaxation and recreation. Holidays here are fun-filled and stress free.
We arrived to find our hosts, and a plate of fudge, waiting to give us the keys to the smaller cabin. The lawns of the two cabins (and the others nearby) to be immaculate. I was pleased that there were ducks and ducklings. Other birds there are loons, gulls, and cormerants. I fed the ducks, no-one else was interested.
My little dog, a 5-pounder, came out of his timid shell and investigated the couple of acres of property like a big dog!
There are a couple of good restaurants within a mile or so, on the backroads: Maynards and The Birches. We did a moose tour with The Birches, also, and that was successful and a nice boat tour of the back rivers.
We also went down to Greenville to the Black Frog restaurant and Tiki bar, and to Woodies, a roadhouse kind of place, as well as the other stores and restaurants down there. It's kind of a tourist/beach-like town to have fun in.
The beach at the cabin is small but excellent for kids and adults. The kayaks and canoe and marina are great. Check out the pics on this web site. They're all real.
Have a great time!
