Wilson’s News

It all begins with Our Guests,
Since 1865!

Dear Scott and Alison,

My family and friends spent 3 days at the Wilsons Cabins on Moosehead Lake 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.       (The Peskovitz family)

What do you think of when you hear the word fishing? Most of us picture boats, sunscreen, and open water. But the best fishing in Maine also involves ice, hot chocolate, and warming huts.
