Moosehead Hideaway is a great place

  • 5 of 5

Stunning views with such an open front - anytime of day/night looks great - location is ~1 mile from shops and town activities. Canoes/kayaks and bikes were a big plus. Mooring was added benefit for our 20' boat - endless sites to explore including Kineo hiking (wow what a view), Moose sightings at the DOT. fishing etc etc. Very laid back community and great food at Stress Free Moose. Kids loved it. Scott (owner) was great as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you! What a great renter you were. Our housekeeper informed us of a minor issue, so I called Matthew for some more details from his perspective. He actually fixed the issue and saved me from having to contact a plumber.

Maine paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property with everything you need for fun. Right on the water, you can kayak, go boating, fishing, or just watch the loons. The house is clean and comfortable and has gorgeous views of Moosehead Lake. Just minutes from the town of Greenville makes it easy to access popular attractions, shops, and restaurants.

Lovely home on Moosehead Lake with great views.

  • 5 of 5

This three bedroom home had everything. Fully stocked kitchen, two bathrooms, gas fireplace,

four bikes, large canoe, several kayaks, fire pit, barbecue grill, dock extending into the lake and

more. The house was very clean and convenient to everything in Greenville. The views of the lake were excellent. We made the right choice when we decided to rent this home and would recommend this house to everyone.

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.
