Whether you’re not quite ready to let go of winter or simply want to get away from it all without giving it all up, the The Lodge at Moosehead Lake is the answer. Steal away to this oasis of elegance, a not-so-rustic lodge set on a hillside overlooking Moosehead Lake, just outside of Greenville in the northern Maine woods. The Cozy Winter Weekend package, available through March, includes two nights lodging in a lake-view room, including daily two-course breakfast and pub supper; rates begin at $599 per room, exclusive of tax, gratuity, and alcohol.
The lodge combines rustic craft with chic sophistication, a woodsy Maine experience without sacrificing either the securities or amenities of civilization. Expect fancy linens and soft robes, inroom gas fireplaces and whirlpool baths, Wifi and more than 500 movie titles. Now add expansive living rooms, a pub with pool table and English darts, a guest pantry stocked with 24-hour snacks and beverages, and jaw-dropping sunset views from almost every room.
It’s easy to hole up inside for the weekend, but the outdoor world beckons with seasonal adventures, including snowshoeing, dog sledding, and snowmobiling, when the weather cooperates. Even if March Mudness prevails, the inn’s a place to escape it and the rest of the world, if only for the weekend.
