About John Lauro

After visiting Greenville, ME for 3 days, I put money down on a home! The North Woods area TRULY embraces the meaning behind Maine's slogan, 'Maine, the way life should be!'. I have enjoyed both the area and the people of this town for 14 years and counting. My kids have gown up vacationing here, and I hope their kids will enjoy it someday as well. Being from Philadelphia, PA this cabin is the PERFECT retreat to get away from it all!

John Lauro purchased this cabin in 2000

Why John Lauro chose Moosehead Lake

This is a comfortable, fully equipped house, secluded, private, and yet 5.5 miles from activities downtown. Relax by a fire outside and enjoy the night air and millions of stars in the sky, or sit comfortably inside by a wood stove fire, play games, watch satellite TV, or just have good conversations with family and friends. Morning coffee on the large front porch on a nice day makes it all worth it!

What makes this cabin unique

Once I saw the winter night sky for the first time, I knew I was home! I am not a star gazer, nor versed in astronomy, but the first time I saw the constellation Orion, and could view the ENTIRE archer profile, I knew this place was something special. I will also never forget one morning sitting on the front porch, drinking my coffee, when a bull moose came walking down the driveway, stopped, and stared at me for a good 4-5 minutes. We were just being good neighbors and enjoying the morning sun!

Perfect secluded cabin in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

A great place for starting a fishing trip because the cabin is mid way between some of the great fishing rivers in Maine. If was to mention the many lakes listed near by there would not be enough room on this page. The cabin is snug-comfy with everything needed to grill that steak or get your coffee and eggs ready. Can't wait to rent again.

We had a wonderful time. Wish we could have stayed longer!! Thanks for being so accommodating when we called at the last minute. The cabin is decorated beautifully and has everything you could need. Enjoyed walking on the trails near cabin. Was nice and quiet but only a few minutes to good restaurants in Greenville. Thanks for letting us use your beautiful cabin. We hope to make it back again sometime.

Cabin in the Maine woods

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is out of town and on a gravel road. We slept with the windows open and did not hear anything except birds singing in the morning and the breeze blowing through the drapes. There is a nice wood stove too. It is very clean. Everything worked, we grilled each night on the deck and listened to loons on the nearby Prong Pond. I would recommend this cabin to anyone who wants to be out of town a bit. We had a great time. There are mountains to climb and Moosehead Lake is pristine with mountains surrounding it. It's not too far from Baxter too.

Cozy cabin in the middle of the woods!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the cabin was great! Secluded, cozy, clean and well stocked! We had everything we needed in there. Towels, linens, pots, pans, plates, etc. The place was spotless when entering. I would definitely rent this cabin again!

Terrific Property -- Exactly as Advertised!

  • 5 of 5

Trust the reviews -- they're all right about this place. It's great! Private and secluded are the perfect words to describe this wonderful cabin. Very comfortable, well maintained, modern appliances, and the owner provides a helpful binder with all the info you need to explore the area. We spent a few days here in mid-July and the cabin stayed nice and cool through some particularly warm, sunny days. Didn't see any moose, but the star gazing was terrific. I would recommend this place to anyone seeking to get away from the world for a while, whilst also being relatively close to town. Definitely make time for the State Park nearby where you can swim or hike around the breathtaking Moosehead Lake area.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the place and I appreciate the nice review. I feel the seclusion is also one of the best parts of the cabin - your not too far from town at all, but you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Sorry you didn't see any moose, but I always find you see them when you aren't looking for them. Maybe next time. If you come back to the Moosehead Lake region again for another getaway vacation, I hope you will keep me in mind and choose to stay at Moose's Hideaway!
