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.
And this is the link to our little moment of fame. www.youtube.com/watch?v=72QFFgNSHhU
The past few evenings have been glorious with calm waters, no wind, no sounds except the loons calling. Can you hear them?
What can be better than a roaring campfire by the water
as you watch an incredible sunset?
Calm waters, blue skies, and kayak. Perfect day to explore the ponds in Jackman Maine.
This Saturday, August 17th, we have a couple fundraisers in town that should be fun and rewarding.
One is a fundraiser for the Border Riders Club sponsored by 201 Powersports. This event is open to the public stop on by and grab a burger and take a chance on winning some fabulous raffles! Morning ride leaving 201 Powersports at 9am. Burgers and dogs On the grill from 12-2 Afternoon ride leaves at 130 pm. Raffles and 50/50 all proceeds and donations go to The border Riders Sportsman Club.
The second fundraiser is to support the ambulance and 24 hour acute care in Jackman. It is sponsored by the CHAT and JRCA at the town park from 10-5. There will be information booths, safety demonstrations, health checks, food wagon, horse rides, scenic plane rides plus raffles, silent auctions and a 50/50 raffle.
Both events should be tons of fun, good food, and much needed fundraisers.
Then in the evening, stop by the Northland for some country and classic rock entertainment. The plan is for the band to be outside from 9p-12:30.
Have a great weekend.
Today is one of those perfect summer days in Jackman. The skies are clear, sun is warm, no humidity and the waters are calm. It is a great day to be out on the lake swimming, laying around in a tube, or water skiing.
Or just sit on the deck and watch them ride by
If you are out on the ATV or sitting around the campfire, you just have to look up once in awhile and take it all in. You never know what you will see.
Our guest, Kelly D., woke around 3 am one morning and heard the loons calling. When she looked our the window, this is what she saw.
I have no other words to say on this. Just a perfect moment.
