The Colors of Fall

We had a one night stay with our parents/grandparents. Such a beautiful time of year. Colors of fall. Overnight we had a one-inch snowfall and our little girl (three years old) enjoyed making several small snowmen. We enjoyed several short walks to the water and back and discovered one night was too short to enjoy and do all that this area has to offer. We loved the cabin and hope to follow in your steps one day and have cabins of our own to rent out to those who would like to visit our area - Aroostook County.

We had a beautiful time; the area and place are wonderful. We had our youngest son and his wife and two girls for the weekend and as you see they came themselves for one night. We brought the two small granddaughters and our oldest granddaughter (15, 3 & 1 year olds). We hiked to Wilson Falls. We also had our oldest son who is mentally & physically handicapped. We pushed him in his wheelchair up to eht falls. What a beautiful day Saturday was. We all enjoyed the camp, the outdoors, the games, the eating, the hiking, just being together. After the all left on Sunday, we still enjoyed more of the area and went up to Moosehead Lake and rode around there and visted some other places. What an area! We did see some turkeys and one partridge. No moose - we do see plenty of these where we come from - Aroostook County. We also went down to Dover-Foxcroft area for some sights and things to do.

The camp, the waterfalls, the stream - especially out front here - is so beautiful. We just marveled at how powerful the Lord really is when you look all around you at what He has made and given to us to enjoy. We thank Him daily for all we have and for all we can do. Thank you for opening your cabin to others to enjoy. The children all want to come back and so do we. There is so much more to see and enjoy. We did get some reading and plain-old relaxing in, too. Thank you again.

(Owners' note: We've recently (May, 2014) added a more easy-access gravel trail down to a bonfire area & picnic site on the water's edge. We wouldn't call it handicapped accessible, exactly, but it is a LOT easier for folks with mobility challenges to enjoy the river.)

Perfect 30th Anniversary Trip

Sitting on the deck listening to the roar of Big Wilson one more time as I write this. What an awesome property! Thank you so much for allowing us the time to spend our 30th wedding anniversary in such a perfect setting.

Spent a lot of time moose watching. Best chance to see one is between Greenville and Kokadjo. We saw two bulls and three cows in that stretch. The road back to Casey's camp is prime.

Best place to eat is Black Frog. Try their fish dinner. It was great. They also serve a wicked Bloody Mary.

Make sure to hike back to Little Wilson Falls. Well worth it.

Thanks again,

Body-Surfing Ducks

We came over Labor Day weekend for my brother's bachelor party. We camped two nights in Bigelow Preserve at the base of Fire Warden's Trail. Our campsite overlooked Sugerloaf's ski slopes. We arrived on a Friday at Big Wilson. We saw one salmon, but the fish generally weren't biting anywhere over the weekend. We caught 20 trout between seven of us in four or five days. Nevertheless, this has been awesome - the landscape is gorgeous, the waterfalls and remote atmosphere have been relaxing. The cabin is much more developed than we initially expected. We plan to come back in a few years during the height of the salmon fishing season.

One day we saw the ducks take turns body surfing down the waterfalls. They displayed a sense of community and the ability to have fun. Awesome.

Practice Kayaking

Water levels were a little low in August for the kind of fun my son & I like to have on the river - whitewater kayaking.
But he got a little practice in on the stepped falls in front of Big Wilson Camp, and later in the week, we made it over to the Kennebec (controlled by scheduled dam releases, 10 am - 1 pm daily) for a harrowing class III/IV ride through an incredible canyon.

Whitewater kayaking may be a bit too extreme for some, but I highly recommend whitewater rafting the Kennebec with one of the tour companies in Greenville or The Forks.

A 'Fluke' Discovery Googling 'Waterfront Cabin'

What a great week! We loved the cabin the falls and everything about the place. Greenville is such a great little place - lots of fun stores to find treasures in.

  • Took a day trip to the White Mountains in New Hampshire.
  • Hiked to the lower falls.
  • Kids enjoyed jumping off the rock at the bridge.
  • Canoed & Kayaked on Prong Pond - beautiful.
  • Hiked up Borestone Mountain - the overlook was great too! Some of us only made it to the Nature Center, but it was beautiful.
  • Whitewater rafting on Kennebec River - awesome with Northeast Guide. Great lunch, great guides, great price!
Just a fluke that we found this place - googling for a waterfront cabin. This area was absolutely gorgeous. We couldn't have had better weather - no rain, high-70's to mid-80's all seven days! Awesome week - thanks so much.

We enjoyed the Black Frog, eating on the docks & Jamo's Pizza was great!

'Great Camp in an Even Greater Setting'

What a great camp in an even greater setting. Although we were bombarded with rain, we did have the opportunity to create some long-lasting memories.

Hightlights ...

  • Whitewater rafting with Crab Apple in the Forks. Highly recommended!! We loved our guides!
  • Hike to Borestone Mountain. Unbelievable views. Words & photos just don't do it justice ... you need to experience it.
  • Fishing with Chris Young from Young's Guide Service.
  • The campfire.
  • Dinner at the Black Frog & Stress Free Moose.
  • Seeing five moose, fox, turkeys, deer.

Thanks for everything!

More Friends of the Owners

First time in Maine and words cannot describe the natural beauty of the area and the amazing time we shared with Eric and Tricia! We met Eric and Tricia a few moths ago at Tricia's group, and soon discovered we were kindred spirits and like-minded adventurers with a love of hiking and kayaking. So ... when they generously invited us to spend a few days with them at their cabin, we eagerly accepted. We saw a lot of waterfalls, since Tricia is a waterfall freak, and went on hikes to Little and Big Wilson Falls, the B-52 site, and climbed to the summit of Borestone Mountain, which is something I never thought I could/would do - LOVE ROCKS! Want to take a boulder home ...

Thank you Eric and Tricia for your amazing and generous hospitality. Loved our card games and geocaching adventures. Look forward to coming back soon and seeing some moose! Amazing. Just amazing. Loved every minute.

Love you guys!
