Cheerful home on lovely lake

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful and restful visit at Camp Betty. Dallas and Emily were very welcoming and right next door if we needed anything during our time. The house was comfortable and we spent time reading and playing board games. We enjoyed the kayak and exploring the grounds. We also had many fun games of croquet and bocce on the expansive lawn and at night enjoyed roasting marshmallows over the fire pit. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Women's "Time Out Camp"

  • 5 of 5

Three of my friends and I needed some "time out", so we booked a week for R 'n R at Camp Betty. it was perfect for what we wanted & needed- time away from responsibilities and family.We each had our own bedroom, and the large porch was enjoyed! We had evening campfires, listened to the loons & birds, read summer novels, swam in the clear water, made new friends with some of the neighbors, played card & board games, did puzzles, had cocktails and told stories. We had some funny mishaps paddling the canoes, took walks, delighted in morning meanderings in the paddle boats, and even did some fishing from the rowboat. The weather was ideal! The grocery store is not too far away, and there are restaurants nearby, too. We all agreed that it was a great respite from everything, and we would recommend it for other gal pals who might need a "Time Out Week". .

The camp was wonderful, as nice and better than the photos posted. It was clean, well appointed, roomy, had a nice lay-out for activities (play,dining, sleeping, hammock) The waterfront has a nice shallow area for wading,and gradual deeper water for swimming. We also enjoyed hanging out in our deck chairs on the dock. The hosts provided us with fishing equipment, and they provided us with some items that we needed, but had forgotten.

Our hosts told us about "Red Barn", a famous seafood restaurant in Augusta, so we had some delicious fried clams, lobster rolls, fried vegetables, and award-winning seafood chowder there.

A lovely stay at Camp Betty

  • 5 of 5

The house and area is beautiful, even better than the pictures. The hosts are lovely and very accommodating. The porch is perfect for relaxing with a lovely view of the pond. There are plenty of boats for exploring the pond, as well as a floating dock on the other side which is perfect for a swim (the water in front of the dock is a bit mucky and shallow for swimming, but great for wading with the fish and floating around.) The firepit is amazing and very large. The property is fairly new and still has a few quirks to be finished/worked out but nothing that detracted from our stay. The property is in an area that feels very remote, but is very conveniently located near many amenities. We all thoroughly enjoyed our time at Camp Betty and would consider it for future getaways!

Camp Betty is a wonderful venue for either getting away from it all, or using it as a resting place from travelling to other Maine activities. Some people might like to stay on the porch all day and read, paint, bird-watch, do puzzles, write or nap.There is a horseshoe pit, a lawn for badminton, bocce ball, lawn darts, or whatever lawn games you bring. There is a paddle boat, canoe, and small rowboat at your disposal. Snorkeling, swimming, fishing and bicycling are fun. There's the State Museum, Maine Music Camp with Sunday concerts, Ballard Horseback Farm, Belgrade Golf Club, Lakewood and Brunswick Summer Theaters, Hallowell and Gardiner waterfront concerts, Augusta Dance Academy, sidewalk art shows in Augusta, Winthrop, Gardiner, Hallowell, and Waterville, lots of restaurants to try-some favorites being Sunset Grill, Wing's Hill Inn, & Village Inn in Belgrade, Red Barn seafood in Augusta, Slates and The Liberal Cup in Hallowell, shopping at the Freeport outlets is 40 minutes away(L.L. Bean), The Senator Day Spa in Augusta, and there's always something interesting going on all summer within 30 miles.
