Moose Pont Cabin is reserved for exclusive use by a single party and can host up to seven guests and two dogs.
A screened-in porch runs the width of the cabin and overlooks the lake. The kitchen includes a propane refrigerator, a propane cookstove with oven, and all pots, pans, dishes, and flatware for seven guests. The sink can be used in conjunction with a jug with a spigot. There is no faucet. The cabin also has a propane grill, located in the screened-in porch. The cabin also offers two canoes and a fire pit for guest use.
The cabin is accessible by car during the summer and fall, and is accessible by ski, snowshoe, or dogsled in the winter. Gear shuttle to and from the winter parking lot is included in winter rates. There is limited cell service and WiFi is not available at the cabin.
Linens are provided in summer only. In winter, guests should bring a 3- or 4-season sleeping bag.
Guests prepare their own meals; however, dinners can be enjoyed at Gorman Chairback Lodge for a special treat. The cabin has two bedrooms, a common room, kitchen, and screened-in porch and features wood heating and propane lighting. There is no bathroom or running water in the cabin. A privy and hand-pumped well (non-potable water, summer only) are located just outside. Potable water and firewood are provided.
Moose Point Cabin is drive-in spring through fall, and accessible only by ski, snowshoe, or dogsled in winter. Driving directions are available here. Please print or download these directions before your trip, as cell service is unreliable in the Maine Woods. Note that when “roads” are referenced, these are not plowed and are used as trails in winter. GPS is unreliable north of Greenville. It is recommended that you track mileage on your odometer.
In all seasons, accessing Moose Point Cabin requires travel on gravel logging roads. Logging vehicles have the right of way. Conditions can be rough and low clearance vehicles are not recommended. All wheel drive is recommended during wet, snowy, or icy conditions. There is no fuel available once you leave the paved roads.
For up-to-date information on road conditions, please contact the AMC Contact Service Center at 603-466-2727.
Moose Point Cabin is located in the KI Jo-Mary Forest, which is a multi-use forest owned by a consortium of landowners.

Please bring a copy of your AMC reservation confirmation letter to show at the gatehouse.
Access to Moose Point Cabin in winter is by ski, snowshoe, or dogsled only, starting at the AMC winter parking lot. Be sure to pack a full-size snow shovel to leave in your car in case you need to shovel out after fresh snowfall.
At AMC's winter parking lot, you'll leave your luggage in the Gorman Chairback gear shed, where our staff will pick up your bags and transport them to your destination. In addition, please use the available luggage tags to mark your gear for Moose Point.
From the winter parking lot, the ski to Moose Point Cabin is 6.7 miles via Trout Brook Trail and Long Pond Trail.
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), businesses and organizations that serve the public must allow people with disabilities to bring their service animals into all areas of the facility where customers are normally allowed to go. This federal law applies to all businesses open to the public, including AMC managed lodging and visitor centers, where service animals are welcomed.
A service animal at AMC facilities must be under the control of its handler. Under the ADA, service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless the individual’s disability prevents using these devices or these devices interfere with the service animal’s safe, effective performance of tasks. In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls.
These rules do not apply to emotional support animals because they have not been trained to perform a specific job or task, they do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.
