Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Thibodeaus,

The camp is a perfect place to get away for the week and yet, feel right at home. The accommodations are warm and comfortable and just what you would expect for a great lakeside vacation. Half Moon Pond is serene and peaceful.

We really enjoyed gazing at the amazing stars on the deck each night and listening to the loons. The paddle boats and kayaks were an added bonus, especially for the boys. Also, being close to Acadia Park, we spent three days there exploring the trails with the last day of an exhilarating bike ride of 25 miles and a few more hills than we expected. The spectacular views more than made up for them…

The Thibodeaus were more than accommodating, being available with just a phone call/email away. Thanks for sharing your beautiful place.

so peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Every year when I start planning our vacation I spend many hours looking for our perfect "home away from home". This year I definitely found it. My husband agreed. If you are looking for a beautiful home, that has everything you could possible need. This is it. We spent every morning, and evening just sitting out on the pier taking in the quiet and beautiful lake.... and the loons. It was my favorite place. It is even more beautiful than the pictures show. It is close enough to go off everyday and come back to sit everyday. We drove to to Greenville to look for moose. Took in Camden, and Belfast one day. Took in Acadia National park. These are all close enough for a day trip. The Thibodeaus meet us at the door the day we arrived, and were so nice to offer us anything we needed. You will not be disappointed in this beautiful home. We didn't want to leave. Thanks to the Thibodeaus for letting us live your dream for a week.

Fanastic!!!! Can't wait to go back.

  • 5 of 5

The house and location were perfect for our yearly anniversary get away!

We decided to try Maine and were not disappointed. Everything was as advertised. Clean and warm and wonderful. Kitchen super stocked and we cooked dinner every night.

Our Golden Retriever swam and loved running around property and investigating the woods. He passed out every night in front of the fire.

I have already recommended the home to two friends who saw our vacation photos!

Wonderful, relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house! It was a great gathering place for family and friends the week of our daughter's wedding in Belfast. While our wedding week was hectic, we knew we had a restful place to return every day. The kayaks and canoes and paddle boat were a great bonus! We enjoyed cooking in the spacious kitchen with the large island, and there was plenty of space in the great room for everyone to kick back and enjoy.

Only suggestion: please add more hooks in the bathrooms and on bedroom doors for hanging towels.

Beautiful and Serene

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect week away for our family. We fished, toured around, hiked in Bar Harbor, explored Belfast, ate lobster, played games, and enjoyed all of the amenities of the house and property. My in laws enjoyed reading and enjoying the view on the back deck, and my kids couldn't get enough of the bass fishing in the crystal clear water of Half Moon Pond. Yes, there is a Wii in the family room, but the kids didn't even touch it; they were too busy having real-life fun. Thanks, Mike and Stacy, for a wonderful week.

Perfect Family getaway for us Desert Dwellers

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with this location and this upscale cabin. We flew all the way from Arizona and found this Home away from home filled with many amenities and much more than we expected.

It worked out perfectly for our family reunion .The cabin, the location, the lake, the use of the watercraft the outdoor seating and fireplace all made for an unforgettable retreat . We loved the trees , the lawn and the weather was perfect for our June vacation. There was even board games to play and s'mores sticks so we did not have to hunt for any.

Stacy , the owner was easy and friendly to work with. Everything was in tip top shape and our stay here with a big family was very comfortable and roomy and perfect for visiting day guests who came out to see us.We will definitely rent here again in the future. Thanks for sharing such a lovely camp.

Love This Place!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home and what beautiful surroundings on Halfmoon Pond. Our family spent 8 days here this May - and everyone had a wonderful time. The property is a little isolated - but we loved the privacy. All you can hear are the sounds of nature . . . .loons, spring peepers, birds in the morning. The lake is crystal clear - fishing was excellent! The house is very well equipped - with everything that you could possibly need (from kitchen gadgets to games to water toys)! Although there is a large flat screen TV, it was hardly ever turned on - there was so much other stuff to do! The house is amazing - very spacious (when we had a full house o f 6), yet very cozy. The beds are extremely comfortable, water pressure is excellent! We loved the outdoor fireplace - it enabled us to enjoy the outdoors well into the evening (excellent for roasting potatoes!) Lots of nearby places to visit as well - we love the shops and restaurants in downtown Belfast. We will definitely be repeat renters!!
