Overview

About the property

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.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for 3 weeks. It was wonderful. The owners were very attentive to things we requested like like our pet beagle and a faster internet connection. The kids absolutely loved playing on the floating dock. The back yard feels like you're in the middle of the woods. Go on a very short hike through the woods and there is your very own, very private beach on the lake. The best part is that the private back yard beach is shielded from the strong winds we felt from the public beach on the other side. While I say public beach, we saw maybe 2 or 3 people a couple of times during our 3 weeks. Otherwise both beaches seemed to be our own private paradise.

Tons of hiking. Go hiking! Mountain #4 was our favorite for privacy. But it's hard to see much at the summit with all the trees. Obviously Kineo is the favorite for summits.

The lake: Can't say enough about the lake! We swam almost every day, took out the provided canoe several times, even our beagle swam in the lake and loved it. The kids spent hours digging in the sand and playing on the rocks both in and out of the water.

Greenville is only 10 minutes away. We had the best lobster and lobster rolls at Graves Seafood. And for date nights, my wife and I loved the Stress Free Moose Pub and drinking Allagash White and Black. Also check out Kelly's Landing. We did all our grocery shopping at Indian Hill Trading Post and it was great.

Yes, we had a fabulous time and hope to be back. Thanks so much!

Spacious, comfortable home, private and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had a quiet, restful stay at this nice home. Everything was clean, pleasant and comfortable. An easy drive to Greenville for restaurants and supplies, as well as to Lily Bay State Park. Our visit was mid-fall and just the two of us, but I imagine this would be a fine place for a family to stay in summer, with lots of space and frontage on a quiet cove plus easy walking access to the community park and beach.

Beautiful home - serene location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week and we couldn't have been happier. The house is amazing and there is everything you could want or need. Just as a note, bring along your Apple TV, Fire Stick etc as there is a television and a DVD player but no cable. Make it a point to take a walk at Lily State Park and you will most likely see deer. We saw five. Take a drive to Lazy Tom Bog in Kokadjo at sunset. The view is spectacular. We didn't see moose but got some amazing pics. We also rented an ATV and took a 1/2 day ride to see the crash site of a B52 from 1963. Goosebumps!! Lunch or dinner at the Stress Free Moose Pub or at Kelly's Landing. Make sure you make time to go to the small shops in downtown Greenville. The Shop n Save is a perfect grocery store. Last but not least check out the sunset right across the street at the private beach. Very inspiring!!!

Owner's Response: Regarding the lack of cable tv...... We are pleased to say that our internet provider has just upgraded their hardware. As a result, we are now able to provide internet tv including an assortment of cable channels.

Good Location for kayaking and near private beach.

  • 1 of 5

As for the rental home, there were many problems. The biggest one was the buckle in the wood flooring. It was raised at least 4 inches and ran approximately 15 feet long. We tripped over it many times. This problem obviously has existed the entire rental season and is a major hazard for everyone who rents this place. The mattresses were very hard, some of the bath towels and wash clothes smelled moldy, there were no sheets for the sofa bed which we needed to use, and the screen on the sliding door was pulled away from the frame allowing bugs to get in. We have stayed at many rental properties in the area over the years. Never have I felt like the owner cared more about the "bottom line" than the comfort of their renters than I did with this place. I would not recommend this rental property.

Owner's Response: We want to thank this family for bringing these issues to our attention. This house was our home and we have turned it into a rental property while we are forced to live away from the area. Since we are not living in the area we rely on others to maintain the property and keep us informed if issues arise. After getting this information, we inspected the property and immediately dismissed the individuals we had entrusted with caring for our home. The items mentioned in this review were subsequently addressed and with the hiring of a new cleaner, our home is back to the high standards reflected in the numerous other reviews.

Beautiful Home, Delightful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Beaver Cove. Their home is beautiful and well-kept. The location is EXCELLENT. We enjoyed being able to take our boat from our own dock from the property. The dog run in the front and back of the property were VERY convenient! My whole family and I had a great time on our vacation and we couldn't have made the memories we did without all the accessories in this property (dock, beach, games, kayak, lawn)! I could write so much more but I'll just say- We hope to come back next year!!! Thank you so much Hopkins family!
