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.
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. |

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.
The past few evenings have been glorious with calm waters, no wind, no sounds except the loons calling. Can you hear them?
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.
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.
One thing many visitors to Jackman like to do is see Moose. This little guy decided to stick out his tongue at the photographer.
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.
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
What a beautiful day to celebrate the first of May. Does anybody follow the secret flower giving on a friends door?
This is a shot from our webcam this morning. The ice is getting darker so ice out is coming! YAY!
