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 Cottage unique
It was luxury starting with a blank sheet of paper. Here we could raise the bar. We could design cottages to take advantage of the unique setting and terrain. We had 40 acres and a half mile of shoreline to play with. Sunrise, our third cottage, finished in the spring of 2007, was designed to be a handicapped friendly vacation rental retreat from the start. It was built in the 1930’s craftsman style, yet has all of the modern conveniences one expects, including central heating, full baths and fully equipped kitchen. Everything we did in this cottage was with wheelchair accessibility in mind. Not only can a handicapped person live in this cottage independently but others will find it quite functional themselves. Furnishing a “North Woods” cabin required a combination of campy and rustic cedar furniture. Decorations in and around the cottage are definitely in a sunny motif. The grounds combine existing native trees with open space and perennial gardens tended to by Pat. An ADA compliant ramp winds down thru the woods to a private dock just for this cottage. The sighting of this cottage, tucked in behind some rock ledges, gives one a feeling of total privacy. 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.

Exceptionally well planned handicap cottage
Truly exceptionally handicap accessible. Beautiful comfortable cottage . We had three generations enjoying our time there. Two wheelchair guests with plenty of room and wonderful access to the water.
Peace on Earth
This was the most relaxing and beautiful property imaginable. My daughter is in a wheelchair, and although many places say the are accessible, they are not. Sunrise Cottage truly is, and we appreciated the attention and hard work put in to making this property accessible to all. The roll in shower, wider doors and the long, beautiful ramp to the dock helped make our stay so enjoyable. Grateful that we were able to have this experience. But even if you don't need accessibility, this house is perfect as a private escape! We felt like we had found a bit of heaven, and could not believe the views, the serenity, and the quiet of the area. Yet it was close enough to town and its amenities if you needed them. The decor was great, the house well stocked, and the tv was there if you wanted it! Thank you so much, and we are hoping to return in the future.
Quiet clean and true Nature
Great week at Sunrise Cottage. Tenth year and already booked next year.
This is the fourth time we have stayed here. Love everything about this place. Our family loves just sitting on the dock and relaxing. We like the privacy of this location. Very quiet. Loons are entertaining to listen to. We hope to come back again next year.
Wheelchair Accessible Oasis
Another excellent week at Sunrise Cottage. Hard to find accessible property that lives up to its billing but this hits all the marks. We rented a slip for our boat at Beaver Cove Marina again this year where Holly & Donna were excellent hosts. The proximity to the cottage is close and makes boating on Moosehead lake every day very easy. My only suggestion would be if you could move the toilet closer the wall in the first floor accessible bathroom, then I would be able to use the wall mounted grab bar instead of the ones you have installed on the back wall. This is a minor fix but would make it easier.
We love the quiet time and fishing off the dock. The well appointed kitchen makes meal preparation easy. We bring most everything we need and what we forget (or need a re-supply of) we find easily at Indian Hill.
Thanks again for a great week and as long as the kids still want to go, we will be returning year after year.

Beautiful property and quiet retreat.
We spent a few days last year and enjoyed the location and cottage so much that we booked a longer stay this year.
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 Sunrise Cottage when needed.
Other Activities: snowmobiling, xc skiing, snowshoeing, white water rafting, wildlife watching
