A guests’ appreciation

I really enjoy reading what our guests write in our guest journals in the cabins but I have not gathered one from the cabins for awhile to post. This entry is from a couple who have lived outside the US for many years. Their appreciation for us and the area touched my heart.

July 28-July 30, 2022

“We had never been here before. It is a beautiful area     The only aspect that rivals the natural beauty of the area is the beauty of the spirit invested in these Cozy Cove Cabins.

The literature Tami and Steve have left in the cabin (the information book, the log of renovations, their history of their dedication of work here) is transcendent.

A place is never just a place – it is the people who love it, who work it. It is the history.

This is what I feel gives a particular identity to this place.    Thank you

PS Have yet to see a moose!

PPS Saw a moose last night -right up the road where the information book suggested! “

4th of July in Jackman 2022

Due to a technical issue with the company who does our fireworks, the 4th of July celebration will be on Saturday July 2nd this year.  Keep in mind, since it was their need to change the date, we will get a bigger then normal display. For those of you who have been in Jackman on the 4th, this company ALWAYS does an incredible job.  See you then.

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

The Freedom Race was a huge success last year. The event will start at 10am on July 2.  You will need to BIKE to Jackman landing, CANOE or KAYAK to the  boat launch on Big Wood then RUN to the town park. Prizes will be awarded.

Maine Moose Lottery in Jackman

What a fun weekend in Jackman. The Maine Moose Lottery Drawing was held here on June 11th, sponsored by the Town of Jackman and the JMRRCOC.  Jackman was chosen for this event in 2020, then the pandemic happened.  What an opportunity for this little town. It really was only a one day event but there were comedians and bands on Friday and Saturday  also

We had a huge tent set up for demonstrations, a comedian, moose calling and a reading, and of course the drawing of 4000 names which started at 2pm.

 We had around 50 vendors who participated, both local and from other towns selling handmade items, mounts, guide services, lodging and of course, food vendors offering hot doge, burgers, cotton candy, ice cream, pizza, and local maple products.

We even had a Moose Monster truck giving rides to kids and adults, Timber Tina demonstrating ax throwing and log sawing, and a bouncy house and games for the kids.

Our local “friend of the Forest” Moose made his rounds all day long entertaining guests.

So if you are driving through town before July 4th, look up at the poles, you may see a moose or 21 along the way.

Moose Draw Jackman 2022

An entry from our guest journal June 11, 2022

“Did not get drawn but had a great time-festival was wonderful-so much to do and see.    Tried axe throwing and she was a wonderful teacher. SO much time with each person.    We sa 4 Moose- thanks for the tip on location of viewing.  Also 6 deer, 1 turkey, 1 racoon, and a turkey vulture.   Caught on world record chub on the lake.   Thank you

Bloggie discount for April 2022

Happy April Fools Day.   Did you play any tricks on anyone?

What is happening in Jackman in April?  Pretty much nothing. You cannot ice fish, nor open water fish, snowmobile trails are close and ATV trails are not open yet. You could try hiking but your feet will either get muddy or you slide on the snow that still remains on the ground.

BUT you can get away from reality for a few days, play cards with a friend, cook a “gourmet”  (LOL) meal in the cabin or order a Pizza from Bishops, watch a sunset from your cabin, sit out on the deck as the many birds migrate through the area this month, perhaps even watch “ice out” on Big Wood.  Sometimes this is all we need.

SO here is our April Bloggie discount.  Stay 3 nights and we will take 50% off of one night. Usual rules apply for any blog discount: you must mention you saw this on our blog and only cash (or check) will be accepted.  Give us a call.

March 2022 trail report

It looks like this weekend is the last hurrah for this years riding.  There is still snow out there but most clubs are reporting some bare spots.

We had a dusting of snow this morning in town but then turned to sleet and some rain.   The forecast for the week is also warming during the day with coll nights.

Then again, Mother nature has her way.  We could still get a snow storm in April.

It was a great season all in all.  Thank you to those who stayed with us and a special thanks to the Border Riders Club and the landowners.

See you next year.

Ice Out Contest 2022

Big Wood update as of March 19, 2022.  Here is a cam shot from this afternoon.

Just to let you know what is going on out on Big Wood so you can choose the best guess for ice out. Yesterday, with the warmer temps and rain, our fisherman were sloshing on a lot of water but they said it is still about 3 feet thick.

March 1, 2022

Are you ready for the 2022 Ice Out Contest?

It was 40 yesterday and raining. Today down to 30s and snowing so your guess is as good as mine.

3. The deadline to post your vote this year is 8am on April 15th, 2022. Watch our webcam at www.cozycovecabins.com for signs of change.

The winning date will be what the Town of Jackman records as the ice out date and time for 2022.

The winner will get 50% off one night when they stay with us 2 or more days or 1 full night free if they stay 4 or more days. This discount will expire December 31, 2022.  New this year, you will also win a Cozy Cove Cabins hoodie.

Hello March 2022

All in all, the winter season has been almost back to normal.  Yes we have these crazy warm days then it gets cold again.  We had rain yesterday and now it is snowing again. The forecast is for 2 inches or so.  Luckily we have a good base so they are still riding.  Just watch out for those icy corners.

If you are coming up this weekend, be sure to stop in at the Northland for the Border Riders Club auction.  It is always  lot of fun.

For the rest of the month, anyone who stays with us,if you pay in cash or check you get a free Cozy Cove Cabins grocery bag.  Just the perfect sine to pop over to the market for the milk, bread and deserts you may have forgotten.

Another snowy week.

The snow has been falling off and on all week.  This made for a pretty photo the pother night.  Thanks Kelly for sharing this.  If the snow keeps up our friend, Ralph the Moose is not going to be seen from the road anymore.
