About the area

As you leave the endless traffic lights, strip malls and Wal-Marts behind, you will travel thru lightly populated rural Maine to Greenville. Once here you are now in a small outpost town at the edge of the 'Great North Woods'. It is different here; small shops, plaid flannel shirt diners and a couple of wilderness outfitters. Around you are Maine's largest lakes and numerous smaller ponds along with the headwaters of several notable rivers including the Allagash. Mt. Katahdin, just to our north, anchors the northern end of the Appalachian Mtn. chain. Surrounding you are several million acres of working forests, home to the 'American Loggers'. The only traffic jams here are for moose sightings. And this is a recreational wonderland; canoeing/kayaking, white water rafting, hiking, climbing, ATV and snowmobile trails, not to mention fishing, hunting and wildlife viewing.

We needed a rental place near Moosehead Lake for only two nights that would accommodate two couples and a two-year-old. After searching the rental sites and reading all reviews, we chose Birch Overlook cabin on Prong Pond. What a great choice! Pat was very helpful both on the phone and via emails when I had questions or asked for recommendations. We found Birch Overlook to be spacious, well-maintained and clean, and fully equipped with supplies for all of our needs. We loved the privacy of the setting, the scenic path to the lake, and the use of our very own kayak and canoe. Our main goal of the trip was to spot moose, which we did! On our last evening there, we took the drive up Lily Bay Road and saw two moose. Our trips into Greenville were fun, too. We especially enjoyed our meal at Flatlanders. I would definitely recommend Moosetracks Cottages to anyone traveling in this area.

My Response
Thank you for your great review. It's not always easy to get the local moose and our guests in the same place at the same time, although we did have one stroll down our driveway this morning, a moose that is. Thanks again, Pat and Dave.

I did a lot of research and found this cabin in the area we wanted to explore. The cabin far exceeded our expectations. It was cozy, clean, roomy, comfortable and in a perfect location. Pat and Dave are awesome people and we got to meet Cera; a very special dog. We hiked, canoed, kayaked, fished and relaxed. We took some scenic drives and enjoyed the colors of fall. We saw one bull moose, 3 loons and heard the howls of coyotes. It was very peaceful and picturesque sitting on the dock at sunrise and listening to an owl across the way. In town we enjoyed food at Flatlander's and Kelly's Landing. You can do as much as you want or as little as you want in a perfect cabin in a perfect place. We have already decided next year to spend two weeks in the cabin.

My Response
Thanks so much for your review. What you found with us is exactly our goal. Even the local wildlife were accommodating. Since you were here the local moose have been showing themselves almost daily. And we have a pair of spruce grouse on the driveway showing off for everyone. The loons are about to move to the coast for the winter. We will see them back in the spring. Again, thanks for your comments. Pat and Dave.
