      What a wonderful stay

      My family and I had a wonderful stay at Tom's cabin. If you want to get away and disconnect while also enjoying the beauty of Maine, this is the perfect spot. We loved swimming in and exploring around the lake, soaking in the hot tub, and just relaxing on the porch. Tom is without question the best host we have met in our years of traveling and staying in privately owned properties. He has every detail covered. I like to cook and I appreciated that he had quality, sharp knives for chopping and preparing foods. Tom's place is unique and special, and we felt privileged to stay there. In our many years of traveling to and vacationing in Maine, this is the place that everyone in our family unanimously agrees we need to come back to. Tom is a good and kind soul whose generosity comes through from the moment you meet him. Thanks,

        Beautiful and relaxing

        Tom's place is absolutely amazing. The photos of the inside of the cabin don't do it justice--it's very clean and comfortable. Our kids had the best time on the boat fishing, and we all enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings, and again in the mornings for our cup of coffee! We are completely relaxed after a week away from the grind. While we enjoyed the Moosehead area, many of the best parts of the trip for us were just hanging around at the cabin.

        • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

        I think the pictures do not do this property justice. This is a wonderful cabin. The land is well maintained. Tom, the owner, plants things to attract wildlife to the cabin. Therefore there is much to enjoy. The cabin is remote from neighbors, yet very close to many conveniences. The bathroom is larger than the picture may convey. We were 5 adults and very comfortable there. There is an outdoor grill and griddle to make cooking even more enjoyable. Excellent, excellent, excellent

          Cabin with it all!

          We were very pleased with the cabin, it’s amenities, and location. We mostly soaked up the wonderful seclusion the cabin offers, enjoying the view of the pond and whatever animals wandered in. We saw a snow shoe hare, deer, countless birds, and even caught a couple brook trout from the pond. The kids loved catching fish in the bait traps and catching bigger fish right from the pontoon deck with their poles. The cabin had all the comforts of home and we even fired up the hot tub one night. When we did venture out, we enjoyed all the nearby town of Greenville had to offer. We took a ride on the Katharden boat, went on a morning moose safari, browsed the shops, ate at the restaurants, and had shakes at the bar in the drug store. Tom was very pleasant to talk to and was very helpful with any questions we had during our stay. We would absolutely visit again!

            Serene & calming environment!

            It was fantastic being off-grid yet living as if you weren't. The owner has set up this cabin with all the amenities of home and more. A fully stocked restaurant kitchen as well as the outdoor grills and griddle were fantastic. We awoke every morning to the beautiful skies framing the pond, the sounds and sights of wildlife, and the smell of pine but no neighbor disturbances. The cabin is an excellent choice for a family seeking to do day trips or hoping for quiet relaxation fishing and hiking. Our children loved the separate loft for sleeping too! A newcomer will find dish towels, firewood, spices, bath & hand towels and even books and games on the shelves...all helpful items for entertaining the family. Locally there are fantastic restaurants, float plane rides, grocery access, and let's not forget... The most delicious ice cream imaginable at the local Dairy Bar near the wharf in Greenville. Go, and then plan to return!!
