NOVEMBER 2006 QUOTES from our guests

This is our 5th year here at Cozy Cove Cabins and every year it is the same, peaceful! The cell phones don-t work here. My husband spends the days hunting while I read, crochet, or check out the wonderful town. I even went to Canada and shopped at Wal-Mart, it was only about 30 min from the border. Every night we eat out-MAMA BEARS, FOUR SEASONS, and we even tried a new pub and grill down the street, it even had a popcorn machine and a flat screen TV you can watch the football games.
But nothing can match the view from this living room window. “”

“”The cabin was great ❗ Cozy and warm-perfect for a couple celebrating their anniversary ❗ We really enjoyed the quiet and peace. This is a perfect get away from the city””
Carrie and Matthew from NY 11/26 Cabin #6

November 6th – “”Cloudy today, snow early AM but melted off. Saw 3 ducks feeding 10 feet off shore line. Used my spotting scape to check them out up close. Brown and white with blue feathers in wing areas. The family came a shore to prune. muskrat feeding and playing in the water in the little cove.”” Tuesday 11/08 “” 2 loons graced the small cove fishing. My husband saw 1 moose while hunting for deer. On the way home, 2 deer-1 buck stood almost along side the road. Even if after hours-white tail always let you in on their own personal joke re: they come out after hours to let you know they are in the woods. I think animals have a good sense of humor-and good common sense not to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.”” Wednesday “” 2 crows took baths this AM on shore. IGA really good produce department. Nice people up there willing to help…
My family and I have been vakaying during hunting season since 1976. We always can depend on Cozy Cove Cabins for a wonderful stay. Cabins are clean and nice. As host and hostess -you could not ask for better professionals or willing people to see to it the stay of their campers. My son got a 175# 10 point buck our last day here ❗ “” The Bailey-s from Vt 11/5-17/06
Written by Rose Bailey who stayed here with her son and husband. She passed away in 2007 so this was her last stay in Jackman and entry into our journals.

“”Rain all week ❗ Did not see any deer, saw 2 bull moose and 1 cow. Warm all week also-50-60 degrees-this is the middle of November isn-t it ❓ Oh well, we-ll be back to try to find the big bucks again next year. Thanks Tammi and Steve””

This is the last week of Deer Season (firearm) and finally, the weather is as it should be. It was so warm and rainy last week, I was surprised at the number of deer tagged…3 of our guests got theirs 😛
(Do remind me to tell you all later of a story one of our hunter-s shared with us about Moose and their territory.)

Hunters Supper was last Thursday and as always, a great success.

Anyhow, back to the weather. The temperatures are in the low 20-s … could be in the teens tonight ❗
We even had a dusting of snow this week in town. I think there was much more in the mountains though. We went into St. Georges yesterday and at the border, there was more snow and by the time we hit St Georges, they had about an inch. They must be a little higher altitude than us.

Now for the main purpose of this entry ➡


I know we are thankful for the cold weather 😛 and look forward to a snowy December!


Jackman Maine Sled Dog Race

November is coming to an end and the winter season of fun in Jackman is about to begin. Starting off this winter in Jackman is a Sled dog race, the 1st one being in December.

They are also sponsoring a dinner – auction that night of December 9th at the Clubhouse.
Lots of food and fun for all and the proceeds go to the Sled Dog Club.
For tickets or more information, please call ➡ Beth at 207-668-2042.

2006-2007 Jackman area Race Schedule:
The first race is the Moose River Run scheduled for December 9-10.
The second in Jackman is the Plum Creek Challenge on January 6th and 7th.
Then finally, the Northeast Championship is scheduled for March 2-4.
(4.5, 7, and 15 mile loops with a dual start)

These Dog Sled races draw Mushers from around the world including world gold medallists so whether you are a participant or a spectator, there is lots of fun for the whole family.

jackman-blog-ccc Although you cannot be on all the trails to watch these wonderful animals and their Drivers (Mushers), there is one area we have gone that you can see them in action. Another option is the club invites anyone to join them to work on the trails where you can really have an opportunity to be up close to the race and see the “”on- trail”” action.

Or go to the Border Riders Clubhouse and you can be right in the middle of the excitement at the start and finish lines. Then when you need to warm up, have some laughs in the clubhouse, get a snack and listen to the stories the drivers may tell.

Another part of these races that I enjoyed is the Scandinavian sport of Skijoring. The dogs pull their driver on skis, no sleds involved. Originally, these skiers were pulled by horses. I am not sure which would be harder!!

All Races will be held at the Border Riders Sportsman Club in Dennistown, just north of Jackman.

The sled dog races in Jackman are organized by the [url=]Jackman Sled Dog [/url] Club and the Down East Sled Dog Club.
If you would like to enter or want more information please go to their website at or call ➡ 207-539-8486

Jackman Snowmobile Trail

The [url=]Jackman Snowmobile[/url] club (et al) have been working on the trails…getting ready for a great winter season in Jackman Maine.

Steve went out went with a few others this weekend to build, I think 6 bridges out on the trails.

There are many streams in the area that the trails pass over and these bridges will help not only the sleds and ATV-s (some of these trails are part of the ATV system into Canada) but also maintian the natural flow of water throughout the winter.

If you want to help prepare the trails for the snowmobile season, please contact the Border Riders Club at
or you can visit their web site for more information.
