Took these pictures today…
Well, it’s not at the Greenville Inn!
We view “a la carte” as meaning: “Dining Your Way”!
When we go on vacation ourselves, we steer away from “prix fixe” menus because we rarely get what we want (usually a very limited menu) and not very generous portions. Some people feel like they are getting a “bargain” when they get a predetermined number of courses…but is it a bargain if you aren’t getting full portions or food you want?
When we offer packages that include a predetermined number of courses, (“Stay & Dine” or “Shop, Stay & Dine”) you can be guaranteed you can choose from our FULL (a la carte) menu and the portions are not just a “sampling”.
So, next time you are deciding on any restaurant…don’t let the “Prix Fixe Bargain Factor” dictate your decision…choose a restaurant whose menu has many choices with full portions…life is short…why not have it “your way?”
We are working on our Summer 2010 menu with a chef that some of you might already know…
Check back to see the new menu and who the chef is!
Every year, a local business sponsors the “Ice-Out” contest at Moosehead Lake. This year’s sponsor is Currier’s Flying Service.
We enjoyed watching today’s USCC Snowmobile Race. The race was moved to the West Cove of Moosehead Lake because of some bare spots on the trails…but this actually made it easier for us “spectators”. We are looking forward to this being a yearly event!
We just had the Snofest Fireworks on the East Cove of Moosehead Lake. We took these pictures from our verandah…
talk about a bird’s-eye-view!

The Greenville Inn has just developed a new package for all of you who love your mom!
Mother/Daughter Diva Destination
Mother’s Day isn’t the only time to bond with your mom. The two of you can escape from all your daily responsibilities and remember some of those special mother/daughter moments from the past. Your 3 night stay in a room, suite or cottage includes breakfast each morning at a private table in our dining rooms, a 4-course dinner one evening from our full menu,
“Tea for Two”
served in your room while you reminisce and jot down all those endearing & fond memories in a

You can both just kick-back and relax, have a rejuvenating massage or take an exciting wilderness excursion with one of our local Registered Maine Guides. We have some quaint shopping areas and lovely spots to go on leisure strolls. Relax on the historic steamship Katahdin as it takes you on a cruise up Moosehead Lake.
For those of you that are more adventurous, we have many outdoor activities such as kayaking, canoeing, fishing, moose safaris, hiking, ATV adventure and seaplane rides. You can go exploring on your own or we can arrange a guide and rentals.

It is good to see Big Squaw Mountain open and people skiing!
I was able to get some shots of the course set up for the team. The course looked fast with packed snow…
hope they had some “good times“!
The views from the slopes of the mountain (which is also referred to as Big Moose Mountain) are of Moosehead Lake and surrounding mountain ranges. They are spectacular! Skiing on weekends is just one of the many activities that
Moosehead Lake and Greenville have to offer.
Snowmobiling is the #1 past time up here…if you don’t have a snowmobile we have businesses that specialize in renting you everything you will need…plus a guide if you want one.
A vacation in New England would not be complete without trying your hand at Ice Fishing…how many people do you know that have actually tried it?! We have guides that will take care of all the details…even pick you up at our doorstep.
Dog-sledding is another one of those experiences that you can only do in a northern climate…it is one of the most relaxing ways to go sightseeing!
Some of our guests have gone snow-shoeing and have had a moose sighting…moose safaris are the #1 requested excursion in the spring, summer & fall.
