About Richard Deslongchamps
Here at Moosetracks we try to do only one thing and do that well: We provide our guests with comfortable, clean, reasonably priced vacation cottages in a serene pond-side setting. Our guests enjoy spacious fully equipped rustically modern cottages surrounded by acres of private woodlands, wildlife habitat and mountain scenery. All this and only a few minutes from Greenville and all the recreational activities the area has to offer.
Why Richard Deslongchamps chose Greenville
Small towns are unique in that everyone knows everyone and everyone looks out for everyone else. There was a natural gravitation towards Greenville for that reason. Here we know our neighbors, people wave at each other when passing on the road.
What makes this Cabin unique
Started in the winter of 2000/01, Birch Overlook Cabin was designed to be a vacation rental retreat from the start. We modified a log home plan to give us an open sunny space with a nook and crannies look overhead. Of course a modern vacation cottage had to have central heating, full bath and fully equipped kitchen. Furnishing a “North Woods” cabin required a combination of campy and rustic cedar furniture. There’s even a collection of antique coffee pots displayed above the kitchen cabinets. A trail winds down thru the woods to a private dock just for this cottage. Across the parking area sits a huge rock left by the last glacier. The real uniqueness of this property is that over 90% of our ponds shoreline can never be developed thanks to conservation minded land owners. These same landowners allow us to maintain marked trails thru the woods for hiking, snowshoeing and wildlife viewing. Although we are only 6 miles from town the feeling of the pond and woods along with the wildlife makes one think you are much more remote.

Exactly what we were looking for
Birch overlook gave us exactly what we were looking for. We needed a private, quiet and secluded place to unplug from life and spend time together as a family. The property was very clean and well maintained. It was also well equipped with everything we needed to cook, grill, make coffee, etc. Prong pond was also very quiet. We never saw another human being on the pond during our stay. It was possibly the quietest setting we’ve ever experienced. During our stay we took advantage of the great information Dave shared with us. One day we did one of “Dave’s Drives” and then went to Moxie Falls for a hike. The next day we went to Kokadjo Trading Post for a bite to eat and packed some snacks before our hike up Number 4 Mountain. Overall, Birch Overlook was what we needed, and we hope to visit again! Thanks Dave and Pat!
Loved our stay
Such a quiet and perfect place to get away, even if it's just for a couple nights. Everything you need, for a reasonable price! Being able to walk to the pond is magnificent. Looking forward to making our getaway a new tradition!
Excellent as always
Very clean and well maintained. Staff were friendly as were the other guests. We had a wonderful time and really appreciate the opportunity to experience the remote region of Prong Pond and all it has to offer.
Amazing views amazing property will book again thank you so much!
We had a wonderful week staying in the Birch Overlook cabin. Beautiful location on Prong Pond. The cabin is immaculate and has everything you need for a relaxing vacation.
We could have stayed here all summer. Secluded, very quiet and clean cabin. The owner and caretaker were very friendly and accessible. A perfect getaway!
As you leave the endless traffic lights, strip malls and Wal-Marts behind, you will travel thru lightly populated rural Maine to Greenville. Once here you are now in a small outpost town at the edge of the 'Great North Woods'. It is different here; small shops, plaid flannel shirt diners and a couple of wilderness outfitters. Around you are Maine's largest lakes and numerous smaller ponds along with the headwaters of several notable rivers including the Allagash. Mt. Katahdin, just to our north, anchors the northern end of the Appalachian Mtn. chain. Surrounding you are several million acres of working forests, home to the 'American Loggers'. The only traffic jams here are for moose sightings. And this is a recreational wonderland; canoeing/kayaking, white water rafting, hiking, climbing, ATV and snowmobile trails, not to mention fishing, hunting and wildlife viewing. We will refer you to our website for detailed turn by turn directions to Birch Overlook Cabin when needed.
