The Snell Family

"We look forward to becoming a part of your treasured Moosehead Lake memories for years to come."
--Scott and Alison Snell

My family and friends spent 3 days at the Wilson Cabins on Moosehead Lake a few weeks ago in July, and we loved every minute of it. From the breathtaking views, to the more than pleasant hosts, all 8 of us had a wonderful time. I would like to tell anyone looking for a secluded get-a-way, to call and make a reservation now. I actually read a number of reviews before booking our weekend stay, most of them were positive, but a few spoke about dog poo, and unpleasant odors. I think they were staying at a different location because the Snell’s keep the place nice and clean, as well as comfortable for their guests. If you are looking for a quiet, clean, comfortable, cozy cabin on Maine’s most beautiful lake? Call Wilson’s cabins. You will not be disappointed. We decided not to wait until next year for our return trip, so we booked next weekend for what is sure to be another relaxing stay on the Lake… See you there.

We are Open Year Round!

Come discover the spacious lakefront cottages of Wilsons on Moosehead Lake.  We are located down a private country road half a mile off Route 15, in the North Woods of Maine.  Our cottages range from 1-5 bedrooms with full bathrooms and fully equipped kitchens, accommodating any number of parties.  They all have thermostatic heat, electric, and hot and cold running water.

Panoramic Views: Spacious Waterfront Cottages and Sandy Beach

Every cottage has a panoramic view of Moosehead Lake and the surrounding mountains with Mount Katahdin standing majestically in the background.  We have picnic areas, fire pits, hiking trails, boat launch and docks, and a sandy beach.  Come see why folks say we have "Moosehead's Million Dollar View"!

Fishing: Trout, Bass, Lake Togue, Salmon and more!

Our cottages are directly on Moosehead Lake where the lake meets the Headwaters of the Kennebec River.  The lake and river are the natural breeding grounds for trout and salmon, and the dam is the gateway through which thousands of these fish pass.  We are also conveniently located to small ponds and streams for wild native brook trout and trophy small-mouthed bass.  Wilsons has a Master Maine Guide on site, and we work with local guides to assure your success.  Visit our fishing page for more information on fishing Moosehead Lake and fly fishing the World Famous East Outlet of the Kennebec River - just steps from your cottage door.


Hiking opportunites abound in the surrounding mountains of the Moosehead Lake Region. From the easy walk into the historical crash site of a B-52 bomber to the more challenging hike all the way to the top of Big Spencer mountain at an elevation of 3,230 feet, there are options for every level of ambition. Be sure to bring your camera as the chances of seeing wildlife and catching a beautiful view of the lake are high! See the hikes

Fall Vacationers: Foliage Viewing, Fishing, Hunting and more!

Fall features some of the most unbelievable foliage in New England.  The colors generally start turning mid to late September and peak sometime the first week in October.  Fishing on Moosehead Lake stays open through the end of September, while the River is now open to Fly-fishing year round.  October 1-April 30 is catch and release only. 

October also marks the beginning of several hunting seasons, including partridge (grouse), rabbit, moose, followed by trophy deer hunting in November. Master Maine Guides are available for hunting, drift boating, wading, and lake fishing.  We have packages for hunting season to include accommodations, meals and guide services-and everything in between!

Winter Sports: Snowmobiling, Ice Fishing, Snowshoeing and more!

Ice fish on over 1,000 feet of lake frontage.  Our protected cove makes ice early.  Come see us January 1 for opening day.  Cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and rabbit hunting are all at your doorstep!  Snowmobiling is a favorite for lots of folks.  The ITS trails are right at the end of our driveway and connect to hundreds of miles of trails including the famous “Moosehead Trail”.  Downhill skiing at nearby Squaw Mountain is just 6 miles down the road.  All rentals are readily available in the area.  We have private scenic trails to enjoy snowshoeing, hiking, and cross-country skiing-you might even see some wildlife!  Several of our cottages have working fireplaces for those looking to relax and get away from it all!

We are here to help you with your vacation arrangements.  Please let us know if there is anything that we can do to make your stay with us more enjoyable.
