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.

Just look up

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.

 

4th of July in Jackman 2019

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.

June Journal post

We say this all the time…one wonderful thing about Jackman and Cozy Cove Cabins is the simple serenity and escape you feel here.  So here is a post from our journal as 2 young ladies agree:

Waking up every morning, having a front row seat to God’s awesome work, listening to the birds and the wind blowing in the trees singing His glory was majestic.  We wanted to get away from life’s daily routine and demands. We wanted to be re-charged and we wanted to just relax and that’s exactly what we did.  When we arrived we were greeted by Tami and Maggie. We even requested an upgrade and Steve and Tami were so helpful. We had to adjust to no cell phone reception but that’s what we needed. A break from the outside.  In spite of a little rain and cloudy days the beauty and peacefulness of Cozy Cove was just magnificent. We will be back. Mavis and Nina    Cabin 5 June 2019

Spring has arrived

Spring, lovingly called Mud Season in Jackman has finally arrived.

The first sign is the birds i hear in the mornings. A couple weeks ago, these small birds were all over the trees around Cozy Cove. Very chatty. Then as a group, they all take off and would move on to another set of trees.  I wish I knew what they were.  I assume they are migrating.

A few days ago, I heard the woodpeckers calling, then of course, they found a couple trees to peck.

Last night I saw 2 geese on our yard, which is actually almost a pond now) along with a duck or two.

This morning again, a few more sounds of birds that I have no clue what they are.  With the trees around camp here, I can not usually see them well, even with binoculars but I hear them.  Romping around, mating or making nests.

I have been watching for our tree swallows to start nesting in our many houses we have for them.  None so far.

So along with the signs the birds are giving us, the piles of snow are melting pretty quick. The melt runoff has caused the lake waters to rise also. Soon we will be counting the moments for ice out. Below is a snapshot from our webcam this afternoon.

After the snow

 

We had about 14 inches of snow last week, then a bit of rain which really only improved the trails. Yesterday the groomers all went out and worked their magic.

This photo is the bridge that crossed over Moose River.

But I like this one as he captured the trail in front of him as well as what is behind him. Nice shot Matt Stone!

Reports from our guests and others on the BRC FB page is that the trails are awesome, “mint” and perfect.  The skies are blue today and a perfect day to be out on the trails.

More snow in the forecast!

 

Are you ready to ride?

WOw, this is the first time in the 15 years we have been here that they can actually say that the trails are open on December 15th!   Of course not everything is in good condition yet but this is going to give us a good solid base.  It seems if everyone can just wait a bit to ride, the trails will get better with more snow.
