Description from owner

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 unit, all you need to take with you are your own sheets 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 for others to enjoy.

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.

“a really sweet cabin”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2016

Nice rustic lodging. Clean & neat. Everything one would need for a few days or weeks. All necessary pots, pans, utensils & glassware. Firewood for both a wood stove & an outdoor fire pit. A cute little screened in porch where you are only 20ft. from the shore of Moosehead Lake. You can't go wrong with this property.

A nice little rustic cabin right on Moosehead Lake. Everything you needed was available, even firewood & kindling. I would definitely recommend.

cute little rustic cabin. great screened in porch feet from moosehead lake. fantastic kayaking. nice yard. my only issue was no couch to sit on during the rainy days, has a kitchen table and chairs and the seating on porch

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

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.
