About Joyce A. Harrison
Owners are a family of 4 whose children have grown up in the summer on the shore of Moosehead Lake. We have been renting our home for the last 13 years during the prime season. Owners are Wildlife Biologists and can give expert information on where to moose watch, and discuss the wildlife of the Maine Woods as well as give ideas for local hikes, photography spots, kayak/ canoe trips, biking routes.
Joyce A. Harrison purchased this Cabin in 1986
Why Joyce A. Harrison chose Northwest Piscataquis
The beautiful North Maine Woods and the Moosehead Lake area are a treasure. The deep clear water is perfect for swimming, boating, and fishing. Wildlife abound with moose, loons, foxes, mink, otters, and beavers nearby.A pair of loons nests each year on an island in front of our cabin and you can watch them as they swim in our protected cove, and listen to their calls all evening as you enjoy happy hour on the deck. Enjoy beautiful lake and mountain views from our cabin or relax in the hammock on the waterfront. Enjoy roasting marshmallows on our fire pit, use the large sandy association beach and dock a short walk away, quiet evening walks on the maintained dirt road. Lily Bay State Park is a short distance away.
What makes this Cabin unique
Our waterfront has a wonderful swimming area where children can safely play and parents can easily watch while they relax on the shore front. Other properties often have very large rocks and deep water immediately offshore which is not good for young children. Swim platform just offshore in deeper water allows relaxing, diving, and looking at the views of Big Moose (Squaw) Mountain and Burnt Jacket Mountain. Protected cove area is great for canoeing/ kayaking. With the direction the wind blows and being out on Black Point, we tend to have fewer insects as compared to other areas on Moosehead Lake. Convenient location, only 6 miles to town for restaurants and shopping. Located in one of Moosehead's most sought after communities.

Moosin' in Maine
This was by far my most favorite vacation! Moosewood cabin is a very quaint and beautiful cabin. Perfect for a week on the lake. It is decorated with a homemade touch and has a very homey feel. Not to mention, gorgeous geraniums on the porch! The location is perfect - very quiet and peaceful. Perfect spot for seeing deer and watching loons! We enjoyed time sitting by the lake, laying in the hammock, canoeing, and even tried paddleboarding for the first time. So much fun! Joyce and Dan were great hostesses and were available for all of our questions while we were there and were eager to help make our stay even more enjoyable than we could have imagined. They even pointed us in the direction to see moose! Overall, a wonderful vacation and wonderful place to stay. We would definitely love to go back! On a side note - we recommend renting canoes, paddleboards, and anything else you may need from Indian Hill Trading Post in Greenville. Very accomodatingI
A Little Piece of Heaven
What a wonderful place. We had never rented a place sight unseen. We were thrilled! The cabin was so clean and beautifully decorated in true cabin style. It has so much character and was furnished with everything we could need from linens to firewood. The owners welcomed us and then gave us full privacy for our entire stay. They are wonderful people and very accommodating . The cabin is in a great spot where we could float, kayak, and swim from sun up to sun down. It is located off of the main road so we could walk three to six miles every morning, to keep the vacation pounds off. 😉 The waterfront is crystal clear, shallow, and perfect for our grandchildren. They have a float in deeper water which we took advantage of to fish and watch the sunset. It is the perfect place to spend all day in the water then relax by the fire pit at night. We can't wait to go back!
If only you could bottle the peace-of-mind we experienced on Moosehead Lake. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hosts were welcoming and helpful. Joyce has decorated the cabin with her whimsical baskets and quilts. The location was perfect for kayaking, canoeing, hiking and swimming. This was a wonderful vacation for our family!
Great cabin for our family
We loved the cabin as soon as we walked in. Exactly as pictured on the website. Saw a Bald eagle the first day and lots of deer and loons. We all slept wonderfully with the windows open and a nice breeze. We had two 16 year olds with us and they didn't even miss the Internet. We played board games and cards every night(believe it or not). The only thing that would have made our stay better is a moose sighting.
Peaceful and Perfect
My family of four (including 2 small children) just spent a lovely week's vacation at the Moosewood cabin. It is clean, has very comfortable beds, and is perfectly situated on the shore of Moosehead Lake. It's within a short drive to the region's many great hikes and other outdoor activities. It's smack dab in the middle of abundant wildlife - we saw a hawk up close, had a great canoe with a friendly loon, had a close encounter with an owl, and observed a deer just steps from the cabin. We enjoyed swimming to and from the floating dock(s), relaxing in the perfectly placed hammock, making s'mores at the firepit, and so much more. Dan and Joyce were great hosts. They have an unsurpassed knowledge of the area, and are kind and generous. It's hard to imagine anyone having a bad experience. The kids are already clamoring to return!
The rental property was perfect! Great location on Moosehead Lake, very clean , cozy and overall a pleasure to stay at. The kids and I had a super time and after a day of exploration the property was the best place to hang out. Surrounded by water, animals and peacefulness. It was a very easy place to stay and most amenities were their for our use. I highly recommend Moosewood and my kids can not wait to visit another summer.
Moosehead Lake has been named a top destination by Lonely Planet for 2013. It is a 35 mile long lake surrounded by northern forest. Kineo Mountain in the center of the lake is a wonderful short hike destination, made famous by Thoreau's travels in the late 1800's. A restored steamship, the Katahdin, provides daily trips up the lake. Crystal clear water is perfect for swimming and boating activities. Fine restaurants and family restaurants are a short drive away. The center of town has enjoyable shopping for Maine gifts, antiques, and clothing. Moose watching, listening to loons, wildlife photography are all relaxing activities when finished playing on the lake.
