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.
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
What can be better than a roaring campfire by the water
as you watch an incredible sunset?
You never know what you are going to see along our shore
Another great 4th of July celebration in Jackman. The parade seemed a bit smaller then usual but still fun.
I captured a couple of our guests waiting for the parade to start
After the parade, our guests and some friends all gathered on our shore for our annual 4th of July potluck. Good food, good conversation, new friends.
Then the fireworks at the town field which as always, the best in Maine.
When I looked at our webcam yesterday I saw these three bumps. Went down and saw momma turtle planting her eggs in the hole closest to the firepit.
We are not sure if she dropped her eggs in all three holes or not so we will put up some marker around the one and hope we can protest at least some of them.
The eggs will hatch anywhere from 60-90 days they say. We’ll keep an eye out at the end of September.
This is a webcam snapshot of our shore. Finally, you can see our shoreline. The water is still a bit high and the yard is still saturated but at least it is beyond the rocks now. YAY!
Look who is feasting on our trees. I was only a few feet away from him to get this photo and he had absolutely no fear. It was fun to watch him peck at the tree then spit out the wood to the side! He is lucky that this is a tree that is in need to come down.
May seems to bring out all the mating rituals of birds, especially my beloved tree swallow. Steve even saw a couple chasing each other then they landed right in front of him and did the dirty. He was shocked.
We have many houses all around the property just for them. They frolic, mate, and nest all month. Once they choose a house, they settle down except to fly around to protect that house.
These two were pretty funny to watch. They flew from this house, a very old one, over to Cabin 3, a new build, for about an hour. Then they settled on this house, chirping at each other. It was if to say, she wants to old house with character and he wants the new house that needs no work. I think she won.
