Overview

Moosehead Lake House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8

Possibly the best location on Moosehead Lake. Tucked in a protected cove on a small point on the end of a dead end private road, this property with a large yard offers its own private beach as well as an association beach on the other side of the point with a playground, horseshoe pit, barbeque and picnic tables No matter what the wind direction or the time of day, you can find a sunny spot to enjoy the water out of the wind. Bring your boat or seaplane! This home has its own dock. If you prefer, enjoy the tandem kayak complete with a third seat for a small child which is available for your use.

On the inside enjoy granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and 3 large bedrooms, in a tastefully decorated home with plenty of windows overlooking the lake 90 feet away where you are apt to see moose and deer enjoying a drink. Be sure to leave the windows open at night to hear the loons!

All this beauty and only 10 minutes from the shops and restaurants of Greenville

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for opening up your home last minute for our winter vacation. The snowmobiling and ice fishing were fantastic. It was especially nice to have a heated garage for the snowmobiles at night. The house was very clean and well taken care of. A previous review had indicated that the property was not well maintained. No sign of that from us. I would definitely recommend staying here. Looking forward to coming back in the summer.

Total relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week up at Beaver Cove--it was a true vacation!!! The cove, the beautiful scenery and the gorgeous house

left nothing to be desired except to RELAX. There were only two drawbacks--the dock was difficult to walk on--could be a bit more

secure and the upstairs sofa bed was very uncomfortable. But they are our only complaints. The house was pristine and very well taken

care of. Love how it was decorated and had every amenity. The water was so clear--you could see right down to the bottom of the lake. This was our first time to the Moosehead lake area and we are hooked! It is just breathtaking! Greenville, a short drive away, was so quaint and the people unbelievably friendly. The grocery store there was affordable and convenient. As for the moose, we saw four!!! Went to the areas that were recommended and saw our first moose--it was very exciting! The owners were very accommodating and pleasant--this was definitely a win-win situation.

Highly recommend this house--you will not regret it. You can't help but return home totally refreshed!

Excellent Moosehead vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The Hopkin's vacation home in Beaver Cove on Moosehead Lake met all of our expectations. The home is roomy and comfortable, and the location on the lake is outstanding. The Cove is well protected from the often windy lake, and while there are some other homes nearby, there is adequate wooded buffer to give a secluded feel. The kitchen was very nice and well equipped. The only negative is lack of cable TV, but there is a DVD player for movies, and the home has wifi. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Overall wonderful experience in the house/area

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank the Hopkins family for allowing us to stay in their home located in Beaver Cove, Maine. The home was exactly as described. The home was well appointed and comfortable. We had four adults, a six year old, and a 9 month old border collie. The home fit our needs and we did not lack for anything. The home was right on the lake which made for a beautiful view. Mr. Hopkins was very responsive to our emails regarding things to do in the area and what the hot spots are in the area. The area we were in had a very nice, safe beach area for those who own/stay in the property.

The area was very nice and we loved it up there. There was plenty of outdoor activities to do and the home is conveniently located to many of the areas attractions. We went a half day fishing with Stephen Cole on Moosehead Lake and had a successful outing, three lake-locked Salmon and two Lake trout. One of each did not make it back to the wilds :) We saw the moose, deer, and loons while we were there. We also were able to get some hiking in in the area.

Overall, we had a great time in a wonderful area with a very helpful owner. I would recommend this house and this area to anyone who wants to be outdoors during the day and be in a comfortable home at night. Now I have to go back and get my picture of the elusive bull moose.

Wonderful house in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is even nicer than the photos -- spacious, clean, well-equipped, and decorated with country charm. The location is fabulous, only 10 minutes from the shops and restaurants of Greenville, but quiet and secluded with a private dock (with a kayak, which we sadly did not have time to use!) and a lovely neighborhood association beach a short walk away. The owners are gracious and helpful, even suggesting activities for our family based on our children's ages, since we had never visited Moosehead Lake before. We had a great stay and hope to return.

Our Favorite Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Beaver Cove and Mooshead Lake is our favorite vacation spot. It's so peaceful and beautiful. This was our third year renting this house. We absolutely love the location and the amenities. The house is very spacious and it was very clean when we arrived. We were vacationing with 3-5 adults and 4 kids and everyone was comfortable. We do bring a couple of blow up mattresses for the kids and set them up in the super large room over the garage. The only complaint we would have is that the mattress on the pull out sofa upstairs is totally shot and nobody got a good night sleep on it. We also bring our own skillet and use it for breakfast and other frying needs, since the frying pans are not in the best shape.

The location of the house is perfect. It's only 15 min to Greenville and close to hiking spots. There is plenty to do and you'll never be bored. The owners are very nice and they always addressed any small problems we would have.

We are looking forward to our next vacation there!!!

Looks are decieving

  • 1 of 5

Decor is nice, association beach was great but what they don't tell you is the problem. Lots of windows that you cannot leave open because every other screen had large holes. We love animals, we brought our dog but the pet odor was horrendous and the fur balls would roll out from under the furniture. The table had syrup or some sticky substance we arrived but what took the cake? My parents came to stay a couple of nights, mom cannot do stairs so the plan was to stay n the pull out sofa, the mattress was not only covered with a destroyed egg pad, but it had food in it, grapes to be particular, needless to say, they only stayed one night and she slept on the other couch. We packed up Wednesday and left, too bad but the owners obviously don't take care of things and don't care.

Owner's Response: No excuse for the poor cleaning. The cleaning company did a poor job that week. It has been addressed and has been much better since. The renters asked ahead of time about sleeping arrangements. They were told that all bedrooms and the pull out couch were upstairs. They were told that the pull out on the first floor was old and not intended to be used as a bed. To prevent any future similar problems, the couch in question, along with the rest of the living room furniture was replaced at the end of that summer season. The screens were repaired right after they left. We certainly do care about the appearance of this property and continually strive to make it feel homey to our guests.
