Why Hilary chose Northwest Piscataquis
I was camping at Lily Bay one fine autumn weekend and happened to see a sign for this property. I had looked all over Maine and had not come across anything quite like this view. I also liked that it was winterized for year round access, and not far from the AMC winter ski trails.
What makes this House unique
Western facing view, only 10 minutes from the town in one direction and Lily Bay State Park in the other. Private. Winterized. Double recreational kayak for use.

My husband and I spent a wonderful, relaxing week at this location. The house was clean, comfortable and well stocked with all of the amenities and technology that we like. We loved the contemporary style and hay bale building. Moosehead Lake was beautiful. We brought our own kayaks and found some lovely spots to use them. There are two fantastic inns in the town. We had a great dinner at each one. The food was as good as anything we have had in Manhattan. We were pleasantly surprised! We also like to cook. I would suggest that you bring any out of the ordinary food that you like with you. The grocery stores do not carry a lot of upscale stuff.
Spectacular views, relaxing vacation
We had a wonderful time in Moosehead Lake thanks to the comorts of this home and the beautiful nature surrounding it. The views at virtually every time of the day from sunrise to sunset and even the night sky (zero light pollution) were incredible! Great places nearby to kayak, hike, walk, run, fish, swim and see wildlife (moose, dear, bears). You will not be disappointed with a stay here. In fact, you will have a hard time leaving!
Moosehead Lake Region
The house is located high on a ridge overlooking the lake, about 5 miles north of Greenville. It is a spectacular mountain/lake retreat from which to view the majesty and mystery of the vast lake and surrounding mountains.
