They survived

WOWZER, did we have some wind on November 1st or what?   Crazy.  80,000 people in Maine without power and that included most of Jackman. As of today, the 3rd, there are still some in town without power due to down line. Luckily ours came back on early Saturday morning.  We are still experiencing some power issues in the cabins but a call has gone out to CMP and a local electrician.  We will get it figured out.  And our guests who were here, survived as well.

This is a Zakopane journal entry form Amanda and Russell

“Day one: We arrived around 5pm. The wind was terrible. All of the town was out of power including the cabins. They hooked up the generator to keep us cozy warm. Real feel temp outside was 28 degrees. We went to eat at Mama Bears who had a generator and the food was amazing. Went to bed early to head out in the morning for open day! The power did come back on in the middle of the night. 🙂

Day two: Russell headed out early to hunt. Only saw 1 partridge and 1 red squirrel. Came back and got me. We spent the day on dirt roads, saw 1 more partridge and 3 more red squirrels. But we saw the most amazing views for our first hunt together!

We will certainly be back. As it is our dream to build a log cabin just like this one.”

“PS: So many trees down across the roads from the wind storm”

Need a Get Away?

Most of the leaves have fallen, ATV trails will close in a couple weeks, and unless you like to hunt, there is not much to do in Jackman at this time of year.

You do not have to be an outdoor enthusiast of any kind to enjoy the Jackman Region or your stay at Cozy Cove Cabins now or any time of the year.

When I ask what someone plans to do when staying with us, many of them simply say:  “get out of dodge” or “get away from our hectic pace” or ” reconnect with each other”.  Or some just say “absolutely nothing”

These are common statements all year long but even now, when the leaves are almost all off the trees, there is a certain beauty to be seen at Cozy Cove Cabins, with just an echo of fall that is left.

Of course there are view of the water and blue skies

Campfires and sunsets

Or maybe just turn off the TV, shut down your cell and play a game of cribbage or monopoly, or sit and talk with your S.O. or the kids.

 We hope you take the time to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, any time of the year.

Colors of Autumn

It seemed like it was a slow start then all at once, the fall colors started to show. We are at peak right now. Soon the reds will go away then more of the orange and then the yellow.  |

This was taken last week at “The Falls”

And this one at Attean Lookout.

And here is one from the lookout looking over Attean Pond during the day.

And then at sunset.

Thank you Karla and Kim for sharing these beautiful photos.

Northern Forest Canoe Trail

 

This group is on their way to Fort Kent on the Northern Forest Canoe Trail.Two of them started in NY, and Brad started in NH.

They chose to stop for a couple nights here in Jackman and dry out before they get on their way again.

Brad met up with Zoe & Oliver (who are from the Netherlands)  going up stream on the Dead River.

Lovely people and We wish them all safe travels.

Want to know more about the NFCT? Here is also a link to a U Tube video of the trail made by another group who stayed with us a few years ago.
