... that we'd parked under an apple tree... Brenda had to do 4 loads of laundry before we could leave Greenville, ($16 worth of quarters) but that gave us time to get a great blueberry pie at the church bazaar. Maine blueberries are the best, quite small and full of flavor. We're now about fifty miles out of Bangor and will check it out tomorrow. today's drive down here was on beautiful country roads, some being lanes at best. Just lovely country, quinticentially ...

we love our campground. for a private campgroud, we had a very large spot. woods in the back. it was very hot while we were here, in the high 80's and that feels like high 90's to us southwesterns. the mornings were nice and in the afternoon we went to the campgrounds pool. there is also another lake about a mile ...

Also, we have no TV. So it was good to watch!
The next day we were off to the Maine Black Bears ice hockey game.
UMaine is 17th in the category one sport. There are over 100 ice hockey teams in this category.
There are two ice hockey categories for university in America, so the competition is pretty fierce and Maine has a really great team. It was so fun ...
... god for that.
Mum did a good job at driving. It took us 1.5 hours to get to Portland. The hotel was really nice and fancy. The rooms looked over the harbor and everyday there was a new cruise ship to look at, along with other boats. It was great to be so close to the water and to ear the seagulls! It was peaceful.
We went out to a few bars and out for dinner. After walking around we ended up at an Indian restaurant. ...

I was riding Vincent, a beautiful, big brown horse. I had to brush him down, clean his feet and put his bridle on. Next it was off to the ring. I have not ridden for 2 months and I was a little nervous.
The other 3 girls I was riding with all own horses and have been riding since they were 6!
They were all really supportive. Anyway so off I ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsIndian Hill Motel Greenville
Dates of Stay: Monday, September 16th - 18th, 2013
Location: The Indian Hill Motel sits atop a hill just as you come into Greenville. This classic hotel has views of Moosehead Lake from every room.
Value: We paid $99.00 for a King, which was the week day, peak season rate. The most expensive room is $119 during the weekend of the International Seaplane Fly-In. I thought this was extremely reasonable.
Room: The room was a nice size with plenty of space to walk around, even with our suitcases spread out on the floor. It's sparsely decorated, but clean and comfortable. TV reception was very good. The motel advertises free WiFi, & was showing a good signal, but we could not get connected. Jessica indicated it was hit & miss in the rooms. The Keurig coffee maker was a nice touch, but I thought it was odd that there was no phone in the room. I would recommend adding some hooks to the back of the bathroom door, because there is really no place to put your toiletry bag. I would also recommend adding hair dryers to each room.
Housekeeping: We usually place the Do Not Disturb sign on the door, if we are only staying one or 2 nights. We had the sign on the door, but when we returned that afternoon, our room had been made. I guess housekeeping assumed no one was there, since no cars were in the parking lot. However, I feel that they should have respected our request. The room was clean, but the bathtub could have used a good bleaching.
Front Desk: Jessica, the owner was very warm & inviting. However, I did not like that you could not get in touch with anyone after 7:00 pm. The first night my sweetheart walked down to the office to inquire about the WiFi. The 2nd night, I needed a hair dryer, but the office was dark.
Summary: Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay & would definitely stay here again. Although we did not utilize their services, Jessica & her husband also operate Northeast Guide Service, located across the street.
