Monson Cottage Rental Photos and Description
4 bedrooms, 1 bath, large kitchen and wraparound porch, sleeps 8+

Located just steps from the shore of picturesque Lake Hebron in Monson Maine, the Finch Camp is a classic rustic New England lakeside cottage. The century old two-story cottage has held up wonderfully, maintaining its rustic charm while including modern comforts and amenities such as kitchen appliances, HD TV and new bedding and plumbing. The rental includes full access to the owner's private lakeshore area (adjacent to cottage), a charming grassy area with a boat slip and swimming access. 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 and a roomy living room with a TV and DVD player and 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 Appalachian Trail access, and a short drive up the 'Moosehead Trail' to the Greenville/Moosehead Lake recreation area. The ideal seasons to visit are late spring through mid fall. (We close it up for the winter.) Late spring is great for fishing and relaxing; summer is wonderful for swimming, hiking, kayaking, grilling, etc.; and early to mid fall is the best time to visit to soak in the beautiful foilage colors and enjoy the peaceful tranquility of the lake during the quieter time of year.

I spent many wonderful summers at this camp as a child. I have fond memories fishing in Lake Hebron or chasing bullfrogs, fishing for perch in the quiet lake or taking a short trip to pick wild blueberries in the countryside. The summer days were sunny with ocassional 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 an ocassional wandering moose. (Yes, they 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. Spending time in Monson is like returning to simpler times surrounded by friendly locals and charming scenery.

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!

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".

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

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.
Owner's Response: We are pleased that you had a nice stay and that the camp worked for you. Thanks for your kind words. - Dave F.
