Fishing details/Whitewater Rafting details: A glance at any map reveals a number of bodies of water ranging in size from Moosehead Lake to ponds of only a few acres. Some waters are easily accessed by car while others require some hiking and carrying. Among the popular species are bass, perch, trout, salmon, and togue. If this is your first time fishing in the Moosehead area, we recommend the use of a guide. Basic fishing outfits can be purchased from several stores in town. Be sure that you have a license and an up-to-date fishing regulation book. . . Then if you are up for something with more action - Experience whitewater rafting!!Each year thousands of paddlers challenge the whitewater of the Kennebec, Penobscot and Dead Rivers. With the Moosehead Lake Region situated between these premier whitewater rivers, the area is a perfect spot for the river enthusiast to stay. Outfitters provide you with everything needed for a fun, safe trip.
Hunting Details/ Scenic Flying Experience: The Moosehead Lake region offers many exciting opportunities for hunters of all ages. Our region teems with wildlife and affords hunters a vast amount of terrain in which to spend a few hours, a day or a week. Some popular species of animals to hunt include partridge, rabbit, deer, bear and moose. Each of these has a specific legal hunting season and set of regulations, which can be found at the website for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. If this is your first time to the Moosehead area, we recommend the use of a guide. . . .Since much of the Moosehead Lake shoreline and many sporting camps are not accessible by road, seaplanes get quickly where motor vehicles and boats cannot. Two commercial air services offer sightseeing excursions. A half-hour flight around the lower half of the lake is a good way to appreciate the vastness of both lake and wilderness. Currier's Flying Service or Folsom's Flying Service, both will offer you a scenic flying experience!
Snowmobiling details: You have access to The Moosehead Lake Snowmobile Trail from the front yard of the Loon's Nest cabin. This trail climbs up to lofty overlooks, passes through deep forests, stops at outposts like Kokadjo, Northeast Carry, Seboomook, and Pittston Farm, and Greenville, never too many miles from food and fun.
Five local clubs, town employees and many volunteers keep these trails in great condition. Whether you want to take just a morning or afternoon trip or spend all day on the trails, your choices are many. Pack a lunch and stop at any number of locations with beautiful scenery; or plan to ride to one of the surrounding towns and enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner at one of the areas restaurants or inns that cater to snowmobilers.

My name is Lisa Sandberg and I am a nurse at a small community hospital in the emergency room. Charlie is my husband of 32 years. He is a retired police officer. He also happens to be very good at building things. He built the log cabin in 2001 and in 2007 he built us a new 3500 sq ft home in Connecticut. I am a very lucky lady to be married to such a talented man. Charlie has the gift of gab. No one remains a stranger for long around him.
Lisa Sandberg purchased this cabin in 2001
Our next door neighbors here in Connecticut introduced us to Maine about 20 years ago. The 1st couple of years we camped with them at Camp Seboomek. But they got tired of hauling all their equipment every trip so they started looking for a small place to buy. They found a cute little place on the Moose River and we continued to stay with them for several more years.
One day Charlie was looking for a boat to buy, and Mark from the marina told him he had a boat for sale and, oh by the way, he also had a piece of land he would throw in. Mark needed the cash, the time was right, the price was really right and so before you know it we owned the boat and 2 acres of land. Charlie sold the boat to pay for the foundation! and the rest is history!
My friend & I stayed at Loon's Nest in September (a perfect time of year). The house was wonderful with all the amenities you would ever need. I would recommend this home to anyone! It was so convenient having a dock since we brought our boat (which we could launch at the nearby marina). The location was terrific - private, not far from Greenville, restaurants, shopping, etc. We plan on returning to Loon's Nest!
Great place to stay! House was very clean on arrival. It had everything we needed to be comfortable and enjoy our time there. Owners called first night we arrived to make sure everything was good and let us know to contact them if we needed anything else. House was in a great location. Would definitely stay here again.
Great place! Loved the deck, dock and kayaks! Fished and fed ducks on dock. Watched stars on the deck. House was spacious and gorgeous. Hope to go back soon!
My family agreed that the Loon's nest is our favorite vacation rental to date! It had everything we needed and was perfect for our family. My daughter caught her first fish at the loons nest! The house was very clean and well kept. Additional fire wood was even delivered during our stay. The property is very nice and having our own waterfront was the best! The deck was very relaxing after a long day venturing out in maine and the open lay out of the main floor of the home was ideal. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend this rental to others.
This cabin's space was awesome to be in. Plenty of room for 5 of us. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet. Very little traffic and road noise. The location close to Greenville made visiting restaurants easy. We had 4 sunny days and some very cold remaining weather, but that was when I found the Salmon fish bite the most on the Kennebec river and the mouth of the Moose River trolling for Trout. Lot's of wildlife showed themselves. Moose, numerous deer, and a fox. We had a relaxing stay and kept warm with a very effective wood chip stove. Highly recommend staying here in any season. Thanks to the owners for offering up such wonderful place to vacation in.
The Loons Nest was an ideal venue for our annual fishing trip.The reservation process was simple, the accommodations are clean, spacious and comfortable and all of the amenities worked without any problems. Its just what we had hoped for. We will likely book this again next year and if the fishing improves make it an annual outing. Thank you to the Sandbergs for allowing us into their home and for also inviting us back for a future vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and without hesitation will recommend the Loons Nest to anyone seeking solitude in the Moosehead Lake region. Till next time...Joe L and friends.
