Lodge at Moosehead Lake

Greenville, Maine

Ever been on a moose safari? At the Lodge at Moosehead Lake, in northern Maine, venture by canoe with a guide to spot moose and other wildlife. Enjoy rustic rooms, fireplaces and ample porches in this 9-room lodge, Maine's only AAA Four Diamond winner. In a secluded setting encircled by balsam firs and white cedar trees, ruminate on the meaning of life -- or snooze in one of the lodge’s libraries. Come hungry. Days begin with gourmet breakfasts and end with fresh seafood, from crab cakes to lobster.
