LARGE 2-STORY CABIN ON LAKE HEBRON IN MONSON, NEAR MOOSEHEAD LAKE

Monson Cottage Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 1 bath, large kitchen and wraparound porch, sleeps 8+

Located in the desirable Indian Point area of picturesque Lake Hebron in Monson Maine, the Finch Camp is a classic Maine Highlands cottage. The century old two-story cottage has rustic charm while including modern comforts and amenities. The rental includes full access to the owner's nearby private lakefront, a grassy area set among the pine trees about 100 feet from the north side of the cottage with a boat slip, private dock and swimming area. Staying at the Finch Camp is a true throwback to earlier times, with fresh spring water provided via an antique hand-pumped well in front of the camp and running water inside. It has a large country kitchen with a gas oven/stove and a separate wood stove. The roomy living room has a TV and DVD player with a classic oversized fireplace. The large wraparound porch includes a new BBQ grill and a screened area to escape the summer bugs. It's a pleasant walk to the quaint town of Monson or nearby Appalachian Trail access, and a short drive up the Moosehead Trail to the Greenville/Moosehead Lake recreation area. The Indian Point area of Lake Hebron includes some of the earliest cabins built on the Lake Hebron - the Finch Camp was the first cabin built on the lake. The ideal seasons to visit are late spring/early summer through mid-fall. (We close it up for the winter.) Late spring is great for fishing and relaxing; summer is wonderful for swimming, hiking, fishing, kayaking, grilling, etc.; and early to mid-fall provides a quieter time to visit to visit to soak in the beautiful fall colors and enjoy the peaceful tranquility of the lake.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible

I spent many wonderful summers at this camp as a child. I have fond memories of Lake Hebron, chasing bullfrogs, fishing for trout or perch in the quiet lake, hiking the many trails, or taking a short trip to pick wild blueberries in the countryside. The summer days were sunny with ocassional booming thunderstorms that we rode out playing games in the comfortable cabin with a large fire in the living room fireplace. We often took the short walk into town, stopping along the way to observe loons on the lake and watch in awe as ocassional wandering moose passed by. (Yes, they sill do wander through Monson!) We'd also take the short drive to Greenville to shop and dine or explore the expansive Moosehead Lake recreation area just a few miles up the Moosehead Trail road. Spending time in Monson is like returning to simpler times in a very magical place.

A WALK BACK IN TIME FOR ME.

  • 5 of 5
I grew up at Indian Point, every summer of my life we would visit the Olson camp just next door. I remember my parents sending me over to the Finch camp each morning for water from the pump out front, I'm happy to report the water is as pure as it was then. I never went inside, just looked through windows as a curious little kid would. I brought my family there this year for our annual family picnic and we were very happy to find such a warm , cozy and comfortable place. Now that my childhood curiosity has been satisfied I can highly recommend this wonderful cozy camp to all who want to realize the friendly woods of Maine -- Absolute God's country.

AWESOME PROPERTY!!

  • 5 of 5
Normally we go camping for Labor Day which co-insides with my birthday. This year we decided to rent a house instead. I can't express how impressed we were with the house. As soon as we walked in we knew it was going to be a great weekend! The house was very clean. The care taker does an excellent job of cleaning everything including all the floors which doesn't always happen in other rentals we've stayed at. The charm of the house was enchanting. For an older house its nice to see how well it has been taken care of. The furniture was awesome the room sizes were great as well as all the quaint furnishings around the house making it so charming. The lake was splendid and I would suggest bringing a kayak to explore the lake.
I am sure we will rent again.
There were only two things that weren't great. One: we didn't stay long enough!
Two: we had to leave!

CAMP FINCH IS A GREAT PLACE TO RELAX AND UNWIND

  • 5 of 5
This classic Maine camp on Lake Hebron is a great place to relax and unwind! Rustic, clean, comfortable and very spacious. Lakefront is steps away for swimming, fishing & boating. Beautiful slate fireplace and lots of antique charm. The wraparound porch has tons of room for dining outdoors and kicking back. Dave was great to rent from and very easy to communicate with. He was clearly interested in making our stay the best possible. Our week at Finch Camp went by much too quickly and we are looking forward to returning. Overall, we would highly recommend this camp to our friends and look forward to our next stay at the "Finch".

AMAZING EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
It was a pleasure renting from David. The communication and his drive for my parties satisfaction before, during and after our stay was amazing. The cabin itself was clean peaceful and the lakeside plot was beautiful. Rebekah the local caretaker was a dream as well. She escorted us to the property and gave us a tour when she left us with the keys. she was also available during our entire stay if we happened to need anything. I also recommend stopping by her establishment the lakeshore house and grabbing dinner or a drink on their patio right on the lake. We made a pit stop there when returning the keys. 5 star experience all around! Thanks again David!

A NICE PLACE

  • 4 of 5
A nice place--the living room and fireplace are pretty spectacular and reflect another time. The bathroom is good sized, lotsa bedrooms. The wraparound porch (part of it screened) is grand. Rustic but comfy, in a heavily wooded setting. Large screened windows upstairs let in the pine scent and haunting loon calls.

Monson is located on the wonderfully scenic Moosehead Trail, very close to the recreation area at Greenville and Moosehead Lake, about 15 miles to the north. The Moosehead Lake Recreation area offers a wide range of outdoor activities, such as fishing, hunting, moose watching, river raftring, mountain climbing, kayaking, etc. Monson's lake, Lake Hebron is a wonderful lake for fishing, canoeing, bird watching, kayaking, hiking and relaxing, and is also close to the 100 Mile Wilderness Conservation Area. Monson is a well-known stopover for hikers on the Appalachian Trail, with a trailhead right in Monson. The town is much more relaxed and less crowded than nearby Greenville (but still easily accessible for its many shops and restaurants), and offers more affordable vacation rentals. Located at the end of Indian Point Loop along the shore of Lake Hebron, the Finch Camp offers a rustic, historic two story cabin with a wide wraparound porch that originated as an early 20th Century hunting lodge. In fact, it was the first cabin built on Lake Hebron in the late 1800s. We've restored it so it is comfortable for modern visitors, but retains all of its rustic charm. The cabin is located one mile from Monson -- a wonderful walk or jog along the shore road, or a very short drive by car or boat. We have a private boat slip next to the cabin with easy access for launching a small boat; with public docks in town. Guests may rent sturdy kayaks from our caretaker in town for a modest donation. The cabin is equipped with nearly 100 DVD movies, a wide sreen tv with several clear HD local channels, plus games and puzzles, fishing poles, etc.
