Dog-sledding and Moonlight Snow Shoeing

We have partnered with a local guide to offer both dog-sledding and snow shoeing packages. With all the snow that has already fallen this year, it will be perfect for both sports!

Dog-sledding packages can be 1/2 or full day (with lunch).  The dogs are well socialized and you will be surprised how they each have their own unique personality.  We have both gone dog-sledding and we really loved it!

How about snow shoeing in the moonlight?  Our guides offer flexibility in both duration and time of day.

If you are looking for “green sports”...these definitely are!!!

Visit our site to view winter packages.  Book early for spring packages, summer packages or fall packages

Contact us and we will set it up for you!  www.GreenvilleInn.com 1-888-695-6000

Snow Activities Abound!

With the cold temps we have been having, the lake is freezing and should be ready for ice fishing and the start of ice racing…yes, there actually is ice racing on the lake.

The ice racing takes place on Saturday afternoons and is on the West Cove of Moosehead Lake.  The cove looks like a parking lot with all the spectators parked on the ice enjoying the race.  The ice usually gets 3 feet thick, so driving trucks and cars is commonplace.

I have tried to photograph the ice races in previous years, but my simple diital camera could never catch the action.  This year, I hope to be more successful with my new Sony DSLR a380 which is capable of capturing action shots.  I am just beginning to experiment with it.  The pictures below are some of my first attempts.  Let us know what you think.

With the large amount of snow forecasted, I am hoping to also get some great snow shots…the only issue will be how to get to the road if we get as much snow as they are forecasting.  I hope it isn’t windy so the snow will just be “floating” down and I will be able to take advantage of it.

All of our guests have arrived safely and have enjoyed the sunny (although very cold) day today.  We are very happy that the wind has stopped!

We hope everyone has a very happy, healthy New Year!!

Christmas Lights

My favorite part of the holidays is enjoying all the Christmas lights.  When you think about it…each house and business is decorated to give some joy to others who will see them.  As different as each of us are,  so is each place uniquely decorated.  

Thank you to all who decorate for us to enjoy!

Now that’s a lot of SNOW!

Thought everyone might like to see some photos from last year…I think we had over 10 FEET of snow…and we’re off to a great start this year…and it isn’t even officially winter yet!!!  We anticipate a GREAT snowmobiling season!

Lots of snow!

Snowy Day

White Christmas!

Pictures were taken this morning and it was still snowing!

How much snow?!!!

Forecast is 6-12 inches of snow for tomorrow…here we go!!!  Good thing we didn’t put our little deer out this year…last year it was buried under the snow and we couldn’t get it out until Spring!!!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…I’ll be baking cookies!  (gas oven still works if the power goes out)
