Pocomoonshine Lake is tranquil, serene, and beautiful. The water is warm for swimming and the fishing is great if you have a boat. Since most cottages are on the east side, it makes for gorgeous sunsets while listening to the loons. A very relaxing vacation spot.

This is a magical lake that everyone wants to live on! The locals do try to keep it to themselves... and I understand this completely... the snakes are mostly gone because of the new bass population... I lived there for thirteen years and saw only half a dozen snakes the entire time... The only time there is lake traffic is... More

the owner is a hoot, selection of accomodation types (outhouse to indoor plulmbing), fishing, swimming and beautiful scenery. You'll love this place to be in that picture you see or great fishing and other local sights.

I was up in Washington County last summer on a fishing vacation. While I was getting a haircut in Calais the woman cutting my hair was asking me about what I was doing up there on vacation. When I told her I had been fishing that morning on Pocomoonshine Lake, she actually paused for a second with a confused look,... More

I have fished this lake a few times myself. Yes I have also come across a few water snakes. It’s a shallow lake and a nice place for snakes to live.
