The quaint camp features open living space between kitchen, living room, and dining area. Nestled in a small cove, the home and the yard offer plenty of privacy.

*150 Best fishing in America (Field & Stream, June 2007).

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

The area had a lot to offer with hiking, boating and fishing. The house had everything that we needed for the week that we stayed there and just as pictured online.. Shopping and dining were easily reached by being only a few miles from the house, especially Ninety-Nine restaurant and Belgrade Seafood for lobster rolls and Day's Store for fresh-steamed lobster.. Nighttime breezes along with visits from the loons made for enjoyable evenings. This was our first time staying in the Belgrades region and we will probably be coming back in the future.

Additional information about rental rates

Tax Rate 8.0%

Rates increase during peak summer season (from May in to September). In peak summer season we prefer to only rent by the week. However we will consider daily rentals upon request, if available.

Please inquire for any other type of pricing (monthly, etc.)

Guests are expected to leave the camp clean, in the same condition as they found it, with any garbage stored in the shed before departing.

September thru November can be the best months on the lake in Maine. The scenery is wonderful for the changing season, the days are warm still, and the fishing, hiking and hunting is great!

We require a booking deposit of 50% to confirm the reservation, with full payment received 15-days prior to arrival. Maine state lodging tax 8% added to rental.

Owner's Cancellation Policy
