What a deal and what a place

  • 5 of 5

We spent five nights in this cabin and absolutely loved it. It is exactly as advertised and more. It is a mile down a dirt road with zero traffic with the exception of two joggers the engineer five days we were there. It is on a beautiful part of Belgrade stream and we are already making plans for next summer.

Very nice, clean and relaxing accomadations.

  • 5 of 5

Just visited this wonderful camp for the second time and have reserved for next year as well. The perfect spot for a bunch of girlfriends that live all over the state of Maine to meet up, relax, laugh and play a few board games and cards.

Very spacious and well stocked with anything that you would need.

Thank you Diane for making it all so easy.

We have enjoyed this beautiful quiet place

  • 5 of 5

This quiet place nestled in the woods of Maine was just what we needed. We have enjoyed staying here for two years in a row and hope to enjoy many more.

MUCH better than a motel!!

  • 5 of 5

This was so nice to come "home" to!! Better than a sterile motel, with only beds and TV and artificial air and an ice bucket, and sharing it with my husband and mother, it was CHEAPER than a motel, too! We stayed for 4 nights and found it clean, comfortable, spacious, well-supplied (fans, paper towels and TP, iron and ironing board, gas grill, hair dryers, all the kitchen tools and even condiments in the frig, among other things), and so peaceful. Every morning, we had gorgeous views out of the big windows of trees and sky, and heard nothing but birds. It was hot, sunny weather the whole time, but fans took care of the one hot night, and the rest of the nights were down in the 50's and the house was lovely. The house has DISH now, so the TV(s) were crystal clear. (2 upstairs, too.) Very private! And, I LOVED the roads coming into it, the area is just gorgeous, I enjoyed the drive everyday. It's about 20-25 minutes to either Augusta or Waterville. We loved sitting on the porch outside, and it's a nice little walk down to the stream, which is beautiful, serene and refreshing. We didn't have a chance to use the canoe (husband just had shoulder surgery), but wish we had. This place says it sleeps 8, but we counted you could actually put 14 people in all the beds! My mother had a room downstairs with her own bath, and my husband and I slept upstairs with the other bathroom as our own. Nice! We cooked breakfast and dinner there every night in the well equipped kitchen, and ate at the big table. OH, and there's a washer and dryer down in the nice, dry basement. We heartily recommend it, and Diane was a great and accomodating hostess, easy to reach on the phone and very helpful.

Beautiful Camp

  • 5 of 5

We rented this camp for the weekend of Colby College's Graduation. It exceeded my expectations. It was spacious, clean and very comfortable. We were very happy to have a beautiful quiet "retreat" to return to between the weekends festivities. The property is very private and wished we could have spent more time exploring the area. I would most definitely recommend it.

Owner's Response: I am so happy it worked well for you. And I was thrilled you left it in such great condition. We really appreciate that. Reunions, graduations, fishing parties, quiet valentine weekends - it is fun to read our guest book and know that it was a good time. Maybe you will come again some time and get to enjoy the stream and relax. Thank you, Diane

We had a wonderful time, we travelled for the Tough Mountain Challenge in Bethel (1.5 hour drive west). The cabin was clean, spacious and at a perfect location. The locals were friendly .. We can't wait to return next year! Very relaxing, loved my morning coffee on the covered porch. Weather in July was cool, mid-upper 70's and lows in the 50's. Perfect. Thanks again!!
