Eco Lodges around the Americas

“The Cozy Moose at Sandy Bay on Moosehead Lake has space year-round for a maximum of 27 guests in its three comfortable self-catering mountain cabins. The setting is equally suitable for families and romantic couples.

Located at the gateway to Maine’s North Woods, the Cozy Moose offers moose watching, hiking and kayaking and, in winter, dog-sled tours and cross-country skiing.

Feeling a little sedentary? Take a “moose watch” float plane tour with from the front door of your cabin.

There are 46 mountains near the cabins. Downhill ski­ers can head to nearby Biq Squaw Mountain; golfers can take the ferry to the course at Mount Kineo. The northern end of the Appalachian Trail is also reasonably accessible, at Mount Kathadin in Baxter State Park. The 40- milelong Moosehead lake is a haven for birds and animals including deer, otter, beaver and bald eagles. The nearby town of Greenville boasts 15 restaurants serving local and international dishes.” Miami Herald
