Moosehead Lake House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6 (Private Dock & Mooring, 4 Kayaks, & 1 Canoe)

The Moosehead Hideaway is a four-season luxury vacation rental in Maine's majestic wilderness. Moosehead Lake's intricate shoreline of coves, beaches and islands provide a spectacular setting for an endless variety of outdoor activities.

The Moosehead Hideaway is a tastefully decorated custom built 3-bedroom Lindal Cedar Home located 30 feet from the shore of Moosehead Lake. This home offers guests superior scenic lake and mountain views from the comforts of the master-bedroom loft to the private dock. Enjoy long afternoons on the spacious wrap-around deck, or take one of our kayaks or canoe for a trip to the restaurants and shops in downtown Greenville, a picturesque four-season mountain resort town.

The fully-equipped kitchen offers guests every possible amenity needed to cook their favorite gourmet meals. An outdoor Weber charcoal grill is provided for a barbecue, as well as a copper fire-pit for roasting marshmellows while enjoying the sunset on Moosehead Lake.

The open living & dining area offers floor to ceiling window views of the lake, a gas fireplace, and a flatscreen TV with Cable/HBO/DVD player.

Enjoy a restful night in the spacious master-bedroom loft-suite with a brand-new pillow top queen bed, sitting/reading area, walk-in closet, private bathroom, and TV with DVD player.

We Even Saw A Moose

  • 5 of 5

We didn't know what to expect here in Maine's wilderness, we are usually Cape Cod vacationers. This was a great vacation with spectacular views. The lake is pristine and having access to kayaks and canoes was a real treat for the kids. The house is beautifully decorated with all Maine and moose themes, The master bedroom is large and comfy and the kitchen well stocked. You will spend all your time outside by the dock and water. Nice restaurants in nearby Greenville. And we could bring our dog, and we did see a real moose.

Absolutely Loved the Place!

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at this residence both in the winter and the summer. Both seasons were great. In the winter we snowshoed right on the lake. We also drove just a few minutes to snowshoe on some great trails as well. It is a very warm, cozy place in the winter. In the summer, the lake provides a lot of entertainment as well. We used the canoe and kayaks. You can be out for hours and still not see the entire lake. There are numerous hiking trails as well. We saw all kinds of wildlife including lots of moose and bears. Plus in June, the sun is out until 9pm. This place is equally enjoyable whether the weather is warm or cold.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in this beautiful property. Moosehead Lake was an amazing backdrop for our memorable family vacation/reunion. There was not enough time in one week to experience all of the activities available. There is hiking on Mount Kineo, white water rafting on the Kennebec, swimming, shopping, moose sightings, cycling, canoeing and kayaking around the lake. The boats available with the house were a wonderful bonus for our active group.

We sat on the deck every day to enjoy the view. The house was so well stocked we half expected to see our clothes hanging in the closets. The owners clearly take excellent care of this property and you will not be disappointed. All of our dealings with the property were seamless and the owners make the process as easy as possible. I would recommend this home to anyone looking to vacation in style.

It just doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five and our future daughter-in-law have vacationed in many places around the world. This is the first time that we've spent vacationing in Maine and I don't think that we could have found a better place. Everything was perfect. From the views to the location (we canoed and kayaked to breakfast and to a local bar) to the amenities provided by the host, it just couldn't get any better than this.

Fantastic location and view!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this for a long weekend at the last minute during the winter of 2008. The owner was very helpful with our last minute reservation. The house was beautiful, location great and views fabulous. We could snowmobile right from the front of the property onto the lake (west cove), parking was a little tight with a trailer, but we have relatives in the area and sent the trailer to their place after unloading. What a great location and view - I am spoiled I will never stay in Greenville not on the lake again!
