Overview

About the property

Lodge, 6 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Camp Mollocket is a 90 year old classic Maine lodge situated on a secluded mountain lake. While you are truly in the middle of the Maine forest, you will enjoy all modern amenities. The rustic “Grand Old Lady” charm has been maintained while the kitchen and baths were completely renovated and modernized in the fall of 2010. Sitting on 2 and ½ acres of land with 450 feet of private lake frontage on Shagg Pond and surrounded by forests, one can find at Camp Mollocket unparalleled peace and rest.

Although Camp Mollocket has six bedrooms, our pricing is based on the number of bedrooms you actually use, with a two night, two bedroom minimum. You will still have the whole lodge to yourself. Call us for an exact quote. Prices range from $420 for two bedrooms for two nights to $1646 for all six bedrooms for seven nights.

Camp Mollocket has its own private dock and a small private beach. Shagg Pond provides excellent opportunities for water activities including swimming, boating and outstanding fishing. Relax on the wraparound screened porch, cuddle up in front of the massive stone fireplace, or walk out the back door for some of the finest hiking and walking trails in Maine – there is something for everyone. Camp Mollocket is large enough for a family reunion, or cozy enough for a romantic getaway.

Camp Mollocket, set in the midst of the Maine forests on a beautiful mountain lake is truly a place to get away from it all. Here you can relax amidst the beauty of the Western Maine Mountains. This is a place where no one will bother you, and you can truly forget about the issues and challenges of our urbanized world. Solitude and peace are the watchword for this location. Enjoy the available canoe, sail boat and paddle boat.

Camp Mollocket is still very accessible. It is only a 3 hour drive from the Boston area. Because it is off the normal summer vacation routes, detailed driving instructions will be needed to find the camp. These, of course, will be provided when you reserve your vacation time. Camp Mollocket is a large Maine lodge, but your stay at this Grand Old Lady can be tailored to meet your needs, from a getaway for two to a relatively large family reunion.

Despite the wonderful solitude you will experience at Camp Mollocket, you will still be within a reasonable driving distance of many attractions from golf to sight-seeing to antiquing to hiking and more. Some ideas of what attractions are nearby and more pictures are found on the Camp Mollocket web site. Email us for the link.

Fantastic Real Cabin Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion here and really loved it. If you want to experience a real Maine cabin vacation, this place is just like I remember when growing up. Large living room for games and hanging out. A huge screened in porch that was really fantastic and a great fire pit hangout area that was very close to the house. Water access is difficult for old people as it is down a slope. The beach area has a very slow slope into the water so it is great for little kids. The beach does disappear when it rains, at least early in the summer, as the owner points out. Parking is plentiful if you have a group assembling from all over like we did. The place is pretty deep in the woods which we loved. No internet or cell service all week made it special. It also caused some organizational struggles as we were a bit unprepared. Make sure all of your group has the directions printed out and has the house phone number to call if they need help navigating. Google maps will get you you there except for the very last turn as well.

Cozy house in the woods, lots of space. Plenty of rooms for sleeping large groups

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The house was clean with plenty of space to sleep the 10 of us. A perfect spot for a getaway. The screened in deck was awesome and that's where we spent most of our time. Would definitely come back here again. Thanks for a great stay!

Connect With Nature at Mollocket

  • 5 of 5

Camp Mollocket is a place to be in nature. I’m lulled to sleep by the bullfrogs and wake to the loons. A ‘Maine Day’ is blue sky, sunshine, and white clouds. I sit on the little beach, read or sketch, and observe a dragon fly resting on my hand. The big kids can swim, go boating or fishing, and the little kids can wade in the shallow water, catch tadpoles and dig in the sand.

It is a great place to hike to a rocky waterfall, pick blueberries, or climb Bald Mountain and view mountains and ponds for miles.

Camp Mollocket is rustic but has everything one needs. It provides the comforts of home for a vacation in the Maine woods. Family and friends connect for a board game in the great room, picnic on the screened porch, warm up in front of the fireplace, or roast marshmallows outside at the fire pit.

This is a place where you make your own fun . . . and the memories to nourish you until you can come back again.

Loved this rustic but updated lodge! Very Private!

  • 5 of 5

About 25 years ago we rented a small camp on Shag pond and loved the pond and especially the waterfalls at the outlet. At the time my sister and I were taking a walk and noticed Camp Mollocket and commented on what a neat place it would be to rent and too bad that it appeared to be abandoned and in need of repair.

So now that our family vacation has grown to include 3 generations, 6 households, and one dog, I was excited to have the opportunity to rent the camp, and we were not disappointed.

The first thing new I noticed driving in were the wind mills. Living in Maine I have heard a lot of the pros and cons and my first thoughts were of excitement that I get the chance of being close to them and how elegant and peaceful they looked. These feelings stayed with me through the week. Even when we could hear the windmills they were really no louder than if a plane were passing overhead.

I will admit I, too, was a bit disappointed that the rain had made the beach so wet for the kids to play on, however they soon discovered the positive side ( and the frogs) and spent hours down there catching them and putting them into their mud castle.

As for the camp itself, we couldn’t have been happier. Every household had its private sleeping area with the family room dedicated as the kids room. This is the first camp we have had where we had the use of a dishwasher, washer and dryer, and the extra chest freezer. All of which are a bonus when you have that many people trying to get away for a week. The main floor of the camp is very roomy and with the large living room and the wrap around porch each having a large table there was plenty of room not only for eating but for lots of cards, games, puzzles, and arts and crafts. The screened porch was very much appreciated on the rainy days as we were still able to sit and enjoy the outside, the pond, and hear the loons, kingfishers, and other birds.

The caretaker, Dick, was a big help when a storm triggered a circuit breaker. He was there the next morning to reset it.

The only disappointment was in the fishing. While the little fisher people had plenty to catch, the bigger ones had no luck. However, they are making plans to check out other nearby ponds.

We want to thank the Wiersmas for renovating this beautiful rustic camp, keeping its grandeur in tack while making it very user friendly; and most of all for opening it up for renting and allowing us to share this special place. We are hoping to return next year.
