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 late winter of 2001 and finished in the fall, our second cabin, Prong Mountain was a copy of our first and 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 is a collection of hand crafted birdhouses displayed above the kitchen cabinets. 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.

Property is well kept, well equipped, in quiet and beautiful location on a small lake. We left relaxed and renewed - exactly what we had hoped for when we arrived.
Perfect Fall Getaway
We found so much beauty in the surroundings here. Full fall foliage views from every window. Morning coffee on the waters edge, watching the sunrise. Our view while sitting on the covered porch was glowing with spectacular colors of maples, birches, oaks, pines and ferns. So peaceful. The loons serenaded us morning and night. The cabin offers us everything we needed and is tastefully decorated. There are many places to hike, shop and eat nearby. Highly recommend!
Quiet and secluded but not too far from town or the North Woods.
A beautiful cabin to relax in and also spend time out on the pond.
Great family vacation spot!
The cabin on Prong Pond is lovely, clean, private, and comfortably fits four adults and two dogs. We enjoyed canoeing, kayaking, and fishing on the pond (which is more like a lake--it's huge!!), hanging out on the dock, and listening to the loons. It's far enough from to town to feel like you're "away from it all" but also close enough to run to the store if you need some groceries or want to do some shopping. Check in was very easy and the cabin was very easy to find. We had a great stay here and the dogs did, too!
A part of me doesn’t want to share this because I don’t want anyone else to know about this place...it is amazing!!! If you are looking for the perfect place to unplug and unwind this is it. What a beautiful spot!!! We will definitely be back.
Perfect cabin and location
This was our second year staying at Prong Mountain, and it was just as nice as last year. The cottage is a perfect size for our family of 5, very clean and well kept. The pond is a great place to explore with the kayak and canoe. Sunrise and sunset canoe trips are our favorites to watch wildlife: beaver, bald eagles, loons, ducks and otters. Moosehead lake is close by for excursions, we recommend Lily Baby State park if you have kids, they have a nice swimming beach on the lake. With younger kids Prong pond is great for paddling, very manageable for our kids (9,12 ,and 14) to explore on their own. The boats provided are high quality (Old Town), as are the life jackets. Many nice mountain hikes within 30-45 minute drive. This year we went up Borestone Mountain, not an easy hike, but well worth it.
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 Prong Mountain Cabin when needed.
