What to Pack for Your Vacation

Here is a quick vacation packing overview for you. Plan to shop and pack beforehand.  You will have things on hand and less shopping to do when you get here. Check rental amenities offered so you have an idea what to pack.

Summer Vacation Time – Always bring beach towels or recreational towels. We provide bath towels, some places charge extra for them.  Caution not to stain with bleach products. Knowing this beforehand is important. To keep towels fresh during your stay. Let them dry in the sun. Ask about linens. We provide linens and bedding.

Plan Ahead – Bring bug spray, a hat, bandanas, a light long sleeve, and light pants. Lemon balm lotion seems to deter bugs. Unscented sun screen is always better. Note: Stand downwind. Use bug spray in open area away from vehicles, buildings and decks. Sprays leave stains on surfaces and vehicles. It is best to shower at night before bed with un-scented soaps. No perfumes – Bug’s love it. Bedding stays fresh. It deters bugs the next day.

Shoes – Have good sturdy pair of walking or hiking shoes with hard rubber on the toe. A pull strap on the back with good tread is important. Great outdoor shoes at stores in town.  Bring river shoes to protect your feet.

Clothing –  Plan to bring a warm fleece and have a layer with waterproof shell. Be prepared for all weather. When vacation packing, you should dress in layers. Indian Hill Trading Post offers Clothing and Hiking Footwear

Pack Equipment – Don’t forget binoculars and camera. Bring a GPS. There a many geocaches along area hikes. Let your rental agent know what recreational equipment such as boats, bikes, canoes, kayaks and or a trailer you may bring. We reserve space for you ahead of time.

Stay on Moosehead Lake

What is the distance to the waterfront? Cabin rental property in shoreline zoning districts will indicate that your vacation rental is truly a lakeside rental.  Get the physical address and verify location with Google maps to confirm location of your Maine vacation rental.

What is the access to the lake? Walk in beach and or dock? A rental with both walk in access and a dock is preferred. Not everyone wants to climb up a ladder to get into the water. Having a beach area is great for kids.  Great for launching your canoe or kayak to go explore Moosehead Lake.

What direction is the waterfront facing? Will you loose the sunlight in the afternoon. Does it showcase beautiful lake sunsets, mountains and lake views?Cozy Moose Lakeside Cabin Rentals Moosehead Lake Cabins Views

Where on the lake is the vacation rental? Not all coves on Moosehead Lake are the same. Very few have sandy swimming beaches. Some pebble beaches, and steep inclines to the water with a dock only. Not all rentals offer swimming beaches with crystal clear water. Ask what the waterfront is like and how easy is it to get to the lake? How far is the vacation rental from town? Choose a cabin rental near Greenville, Maine.

How much traffic does the road see that the vacation rental is on? Is the rental near the road? Is it off a private road? If so, consider how far it is offset from the main road. Will you hear the logging trucks and road traffic all hours of the night? What is the speed limit?  Be sure to rent with a view and experience nature.

Maine Vacation Rental Property

 

Does it have landscaped areas to relax and enjoy? A vacation cabin property with a combination of landscaped areas, gardens, grass and natural beauty allowing you to enjoy the best of everything. Is outdoor seating provided and is there a picnic area on site?

Maine Vacation Rental Listings

Some vacation rental listings are just data bases by city, location, or by a filter choice of waterfront. Making a decision on a data base listing for a Maine Vacation rental alone can be risky.   As you can see, not all Moosehead Lake vacation rentals provide the same lakeside vacation experience. Do your homework and know the facts before you go. Do you speak to the owners or an agent? These things are all important when choosing the perfect place for your vacation.
