About Charles Rowell

I built this place in 2000 and have added to it every year. Summer and Winter are always fun up here but I prefer the Winter months because you can go Ice Fishing, Snowmobiling, Cross Country sking. Ice fishing is always fun up at Mainstream Pond

Charles Rowell purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Charles Rowell chose Harmony

Mainstream Pond Camp is the perfect get away for Winter time fun. Ice Fishing is great, you can go Cross Country skiing or if you enjoy snowmobiling we are 1 mile away from all the major snowmobile trails to Great Moose Lake, Greenville or Bingham and beyond. We are just 45 minutes away from Sugarloaf as well.

What makes this cabin unique

If you are into the outdoors then Harmony, Maine is a great choice for wintertime fun. There is always something going on, albeit Friday nites listening to music at the grange hall or Ice Fishing. Many outdoor activities to do in the Wintertime.

A Peaceful Haven...

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Mainstream Camp for a week in August 2014 as part of a 5 week vacation around the region. We wanted a good base in a small, real American community next to a lake in the heart of nature. This cabin is just that!
We loved the lake at all times of the day; drinking coffee on the dock watching the early morning mist was always a treat and we enjoyed some great sunsets from the same place at the other end of the day. In between we had much wonderful and relaxing time as a family. We canoed, rowed, swam the lake and fished in the most stunning & peaceful scenery.
The lake is very natural and quite weedy around the edges and for this reason Charles (the owner) has extended the dock. There were still a few weeds in the 'jumping off' area at the end but it was easy (& quite fun & refreshing) to spend 10 minutes immersed in the water & pulling them out on the first day.
The very small town of Harmony is great. The General Store is a good place for (a huge range of) food & supplies but also for a few souvenirs. The Breakfast Nook was interesting - a great experience & personal service but it did take a long time before the food arrived (approx an hour) considering we were the only people there. Try Lumberjack Lodge just outside the town on the road north.
One of our highlights (& one of those experiences that you want to keep all to yourself) was our visit to the 'Friday Night Jammers' in the Community Hall on Friday evening. The hall was full to watch the handful of local who turn up for this 'open mic' night consisting of acoustic instruments only. The dynamic of the group changes week by week & often song by song and the range of tunes was great. Word quickly got around that we were visiting from overseas and before we knew it the musicians introduced us, dedicated a song then, at the end, got us performing! A unique night!
A little further afield (25 mins) is Newport with a Walmart for 'big' shopping. There are also a number of restaurants & wifi spots if you need them.
We loved this cabin, it's remote location close to the lake and the tranquillity it offered. Don't forget your bug spray, bring books & prepare for a complete switch off.

Very special place on remote pond in rural Maine

  • 4 of 5
Off the grid is no problem in this remote solar powered home. Private can't begin to describe the pond. In the week we were there we saw a total of zero people on the pond... no boats, no people, just loons, osprey, beaver and very large fish (don't use anything less than 12lb test). Star watching was amazing!

The property is a lovely wood-walled 2 story cabin powered by a combination of solar panels and home generator, a State of the Art system. No issues no matter what the weather. It does has Dish tv, a phone, wood stove, and a nice deck. The owner is very responsive and the people in the area are very friendly.

We recommend the Cambridge Country Store for a unique dining experience. A combination small country store and cafe, the owners are from Tennessee and love to cook. Any meal, any time, they are glad to feed you and your family. The Breakfast Nook is nice but only open on Thur-Sun mornings. The Harmony Country Store was nick-named 'the mall'. They have a little bit of EVERYTHING - from food, to hardware, to animal feed, to hunting/fishing gear to clothing... And if you need a dose of 'urban', Dexter isn't far at all. Of course, the Maine version of 'urban' is remarkably refreshing. This part of Maine is not your usual tourist destination, and what you find is what is simply real life for the residents. No water parks, no mini-golf, no chain restaurants. Its rural, real and quite remarkable.

I would recommend this place IF you are looking for a remote, off the grid place where you can fish in solitude on miles and miles of clean Maine waters. Its not the best place for swimming for children from shore as it has been left 'natural', which is one of its charms.

We travel every summer for family vacations, and our week at Harmony will certainly be one of the most 'memorable'.

Owner's Response: I wholeheartedly agree with everything these guest have said. The only thing I would like to add
is we are going to take their recommendations and extend the dock out another 20 feet for next summer so swimming will not be an issue. This was our first year with the dock, but swimming will not be an issue next year.

Everything else as they said is right on the money. It is a great place to go for peace and solitude and fishing and swimming as well. A great place to relax.
