Description of the Greenville vacation cabin rental
Welcome To HAWKES' NEST - our cabin!

Family-owned and operated since 1990, this cozy, waterfront cabin is just 30’ feet from the beautiful shoreline of Moosehead Lake and sleeps four. It is described as “full housekeeping,” – all you need to take with you are linens and towels (and your desire for beauty and tranquility!)

Enjoy sitting on the Hawkes’ Nest screened porch, or at the lakeside picnic table, watching gorgeous sunset views over Squaw Mountain and a scenic panorama of the lake dotted with small islands. Or, travel north at dusk a few miles toward the remote village of Kokadjo (“Population: Not Many”) and nearly always spot majestic moose grazing near the roadside bogs.

Located in Greenville , known as the “Gateway to the Great Northwoods”, Hawkes' Nest is only 1 mile from shops and restaurants in the center of town, yet is off the beaten path. Nestled at the end of a dead-end, well-maintained dirt road, it gives one a sense of remote seclusion.

Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to enjoy one of the few last frontiers.


Don and I came to Moosehead Lake for the first time in September of 1986 for our honeymoon. We were so impressed with the unspoiled beauty and , what we often refer to as "the last frontier", that we vowed to return each year for our anniversary. We did, and on our 3rd anniversary at Moosehead, we decided to look for a place we could call our own. We fell in love with the cabin, then known as "Otter", the first time we saw it - it was also the first cabin we were shown. We purchased it in December, christened it "Hawkes' Nest" and began renting it out the next summer, 1990.

It is one of seven cabins that were originally owned and operated as sporting camps. They are all located on approximately 2-1/2 acres of commonly-owned land with 400+ feet of shoreline. The land is owned as one parcel known as Birch Point Condominium Cottages' by all the cabin owners in an Association. The cabins are owned individually and all but one are only used seasonally. The well and septic are commonly-owned and used, as well as the dock and swimming area.

As guests of ours at Hawkes' Nest, you are welcome to wander the Birch Point property, including the shoreline, common dock and swimming area, as you wish. However, please be considerate of your neighbors' personal areas and privacy.

Come enjoy our beautiful 70' rock jetty - fish, swim or or just sit and watch gorgeous sunsets.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions. We appreciate your visiting our homepage and hope your vacation is successful wherever you choose to stay.

Owner's reply:

Thank you for taking the time to review Hawkes' Nest. We're so glad you had a great time! We also wish it had a couch, but most of the time we don't mind. We'd rather keep the number of beds than substitute the bunks for a couch, especially since we're usually on the porch. Glad you enjoyed it overall and hope you come back again! Don and Lori

Hawkes nest review

October 9, 2013

We loved Hawkes Nest Cabin & definitely would recommend it. It is right on Moosehead Lake . We loved relaxing on the front porch, the Franklin stove on the chilly nights, & the beautiful views. It is convenient to town too.

Beautiful lake front with excellent views. Perfect location. Amazing owners. Cabin is very simple and basic. Could use some upgrades to structure and appliances. Overall, it got the job done Will visit again

Great Getaway

The Hawkes Nest was just what we were looking for to wind down from our busy schedule back home. Our favorite place was the 2 adirondack chairs on the screened in porch. We had many hours sitting there with a coffee and a good book overlooking the breathtaking view of Moosehead Lake. The beauty and tranquility of this whole area is beyond words. I would recommend this quaint little cabin in paradise to everyone. Thank you Lori and Don for sharing your very special place!!
