Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great! There were 11 of us, 8 adults and 3 kids. We all fit into this cabin just fine! We enjoyed being about to relax on the porch, down on the dock, going out on the ATV trails, swimming, boating, fishing etc. The cabin has everything you'll need for cooking! Everything was well kept and clean. We knew about the stairs down to the water from the description and other reviews, but wow! Our legs were burning! I might not recommend for people who are post knee surgery, have asthma, or have heart conditions (which of course was the case with 3 people our group, oops!). Despite that, we had a great time and would stay here again!

Perfect Snowmobilers Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 nights at Kineo Escape and totally enjoyed it! The house is well equipped, very clean and perfect for 6 adults. There are actually enough beds for more but having the extra space was nice. The house is around the corner from Route 66 and also has easy access to the Lake. The large driveway is also a bonus as it has plenty of room for up to 3 trailers and trucks. We had a 4 place and a 2 place and there was still plenty of room. I would definitely recommend this house.

Great Three Night Summer Stay

  • 5 of 5

Clean and well maintained, well furnished, plenty of room for our group of 6, great location on Moosehead Lake. Convenient location to canoe or kayak to Mount Kineo from the west side of the lake shore.

Excellent stay on the Moose River in the spring of 2016

  • 4 of 5

This is not your fathers camp in Maine. This home was excellently equipped in everyway and would be very comfortable for families of all make ups, even those with children. It was thoughtfully furnished with ample good quality beds in four bedrooms. Two full baths made it easy when everyone was trying to get ready. We cooked all of our meals in and the home had all necessary utensils pots and pans and a gas stove/microwave/dishwasher.

While the frontage is on the Moose River, its easily navigable to Moosehead, in just a few minutes. The only drawback to this set up is that at over 60 steps down to the dock from the house, you aren't close enough to see the boats through the trees. The number of steps is difficult to navigate carrying stuff to and from the boats and for older people or folks with issues with their legs going up and down the stairs cold be an issue. There are ways around that and we chose to go to the public launch a couple miles away to provide easier access. Overall we had a great time, hopefully we will return again at some point.

Moosehead Lake is a great place to 'escape' from the daily grind. The area is known for being a great place to snowmobile, fish, hike, and boat. You can also go on a Moose Safari. In the winter, take a short drive to Big Squaw Mountain to go downhill skiing. The cabin is located close to a major snowmobiling trail. In the summer, hike the local trails, including Mount Kineo or venture up to Mount Katadin and hike on the Appalachian Trail. Our cabin is located near the mouth of Moose River which opens up to Moosehead Lake. From our dock you can swim, canoe, kayak, fish, or bring your motor boat for cruising the lake. You can also schedule a day of golf with the Mt. Kineo Golf Course or shop the stores in Greenville.
