Located just steps from the shore of picturesque Lake Hebron, this historic cabin is nestled in an area reminiscent of the classic 'On Golden Pond' setting. The cabin is just 75 feet from our lakeshore parcel on the lake, a private grassy area with a boat slip. The lakeshore lot is a great location for picnics, swimming, boat launching, hiking or observing nature. This is a true rustic experience with fresh drinking water provided via an antique hand pumped well in front of the camp and running water inside and a large fireplace. The large wraparound porch includes a screened area to escape the summer bugs. While rustic - it's over 100 years old - the camp is well maintained and is very comfortable and charming with all new bedding. It's a short drive or pleasant walk to the quaint town of Monson and an even shorter walk to the Appalachian Trail access. The ideal seasons to visit are early summer through early fall. (We close it up for winter.) Originally known as the Twilight Lodge, it is one of the oldest camps in the area, providing lodging for early 20th century visitors to Lake Hebron. While larger than many camps in the area, because it is an older camp we charge less than comparable properties - only $595 per week or $300 for weekends (Fri & Sat) during the summer season.
I spent many amazing summers at this camp as a child. I have fond memories fishing in Lake Hebron or chasing bullfrogs at the lakshore. The summer days were sunny with ocassional impressive thunderstorms that we rode out playing card games in the comfortable cabin with a large roaring 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 an ocassional wandering moose. We'd also drive the short drive to Greenville to shop and dine or explore the expansive Moosehead Lake recreation area. Spending time in Monson is like returning to simpler times surrounded by friendly locals and charming scenery.
