This was our second year at this fabulous camp on Great Pond! We had a great time, the weather was almost perfect, the fishing was great and the kayak trip around the island was a lot of fun! Great camp, very comfortable and clean...lots of wildlife around including a little minke that seemed curious about our presence! Tracey was very responsive as usual which made this a very smooth experience. We will be back for round 3 for sure! Thank you!
Thank you Jon! So glad you had a wonderful stay. The minke?!?! Lucky you, we were there all summer and didn’t see it. Maybe the dogs kept it at bay. Looking forward to your return summer 2019!
Fantastic vacation experience!
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the camp. Communication with Tracey from the beginning was friendly, prompt and clear. I felt well prepared when we arrived and the cottage was easy to find.
The week was a nice balance of adventure and relaxation. Daily trips to Days Store, swimming off the dock and boat, nightly campfires and beautiful sunsets all made for many family memories. My 90-year-old grandmother just loved sitting by the water for hours.
For anyone concerned about being on an island with limited utilities, have no fear! The cottage was very clean and well stocked with everything you need. You are also just a short boat trip away from Days Store for anything you could possibilly want during your stay. I enjoyed my coffee and breakfast sandwich every morning from the store just to enjoy the scenic beauty on the water. If you stayed at any other property on the pond you would want a boat anyway, so the island adds a nice break from the mainland. I should also mention that the quiet and fuel efficient generator bring all the comforts of home at the turn of a key.
Finally, I would offer my recommendation for Great Pond Marina. Bob was extremely helpful in coordinating use of a dock slip during our stay. He even took time to explain the pond and local activities in detail.
I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! So happy to hear of your great time on the island with the family. Days is a gem for the area and Bob and his family know the Pond inside and out. Thanks again and come back anytime!
Beautiful, comfortable camp with peace and quiet and a great lake to play on!
Had a fabulous time at this camp. Very clean, comfortable and fun! Generator brings all the comforts of home and when it's off, the quiet takes over and the nerves unfrazzle quickly!! Lake is big, clean and fun to explore. Was hunting for pike but settled for a bunch of Larries instead...great time! Tracey was very responsive and helpful...we highly recommend this camp for a great vacation...we will be back next year!
So glad you've enjoyed your stay! I look forward to working with you on next year's reservation.
The kids built a fire for you and shock came over their faces when they realized you didn't burn one!
Amazing vacation spot! Perfect for relaxing or exploring. Camping with the luxuries of home.
Great time on Hoyt Island!
I stayed with my wife, daughter (13), and son (10) for a week in mid-August and we had a really great time. The lake is beautiful and staying on the island was very special. The house is new, nice and comfortable. It runs on a generator, be sure you understand how to operate it. We had a lot of fun swimming, kayaking, tubing, taking the boat into town for supplies, playing board games, reading, huddling around the camp fire, etc. Hope to go back next summer!
Best vacation ever!
Great place to get away from it all! We loved our experience on the island! The water on Great Pond was so clear it was amazing! The camp is very clean and was perfect for our family. Sadies resturant and Days store is nearby and fun to access by boat. We plan to return every summer.
Thank you Linda for your review. We are so happy to hear about your experience and you are welcome to book anytime, just not in January!!
A five minute boat ride to Belgrade Village where you can shop and dine locally. Plenty of public boat access. Enjoy a walk through the village and take a stroll to Day's store where you will find everything under the sun, including fishing licenses and shop the Farmer's Market on Sundays. Sadie's Restaurant (reservations strongly recommended) is located at the marina. Tourists are able to rent boats, canoes and tubes for their vacation, as well as gather fishing supplies and boat fuel. Renter MUST have their own access to a boat. Be sure to pack a few coolers for your stay. Cottage is run on a gasoline generator, so please be sure to bring a container of gas. The water is drawn from the lake, so please bring drinkable water.
