As many of you know, we send a Holiday postcard every year to those of you who have stayed with us in the past 3 or so years. Unfortunately, if you have not stayed with us in awhile, or have had an address change, you will not get a card.
SO we would like to wish all of you and yours a
Very Merry Christmas and a healthy Happy New year.
This was a sunset I captured last winter over the icy Big Wood.
The 2020 snowmobile season is approaching fast. We have already had some snow but trails are not open until December 15th, depending on the conditions. We will keep you updated as soon as we hear more. There have been some guys out riding the un-plowed roads and a bit of off trail. Remember to respect all land owners.
Hopefully you have tuned up the sled, checked your equipment and made your reservations. It won’t be long until we here the vroom vroom of sleds.
This was what we woke to today and are very thankful for the early snow. As well as for all of you who have stayed with us in the past.
Have a wonderful day
All the trees are brown and the sky is a bit gray but when I saw the sun touching the hills in the west and north this morning, I had to share.
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”
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.
What a beautiful moon setting in the west over Hog Island. You can still see some color on the trees, and a fog lifting off the lake.
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.
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.
