Located in the gorgeous Indian Point area of Lake Hebron in Monson Maine, the Finch Camp is a historic cabin and lovely and serene adjacent lakeside property. The two-story cabin was the first to built on Lake Hebron in the late 1800s, upgraded for modern comforts while still retaining its rustic charm. The cabin is just steps away from our dock on Lake Hebron, in a beautiful grassy area nestled among the trees and adjacent to the cottage. Our private lake area includes lawn chairs and the dock is great for swimming or mooring your watercraft. We provide two Old Town kayaks for use on the calm lake. Staying at the Finch Camp is a throwback to earlier times, with delicious fresh spring water provided via an antique hand-pumped well in front of the camp and running water inside. It has a large country kitchen with a gas oven/stove. The large living room has an oversized fireplace that does a great job warming the camp on cool spring and fall nights. (We close it up in the winter.) The large wraparound porch includes a gas BBQ grill and a relaxing screened area. It's a pleasant walk to the quaint town of Monson or the nearby Appalachian Trail access, and a short car ride up the scenic Moosehead Trail Road to Moosehead Lake and the many other activities in the area, including waterfalls, hiking trails, farms, and nearby lakes and streams. Monson is a very friendly town, with several must-stop restaurants and a wonderful bakery that serves hearty breakfasts too. Monson has long been recognized as a stopover for hikers on the final leg of the 2,180 mile Appalachian Trail. It is recognized by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy as one of only 21 official Appalachian Trail Communities along the trail, which stretches from Georgia to Maine. The ideal seasons to visit are late spring/early summer through mid-fall. Late spring is great for fishing and relaxing; summer is wonderful for swimming, hiking, fishing, kayaking, grilling, etc.; and early to mid-fall provides a quieter time to visit to soak in the beautiful fall colors, crisp weather, and peaceful tranquility of the lake. Lake Hebron is known by locals to be one of the most beautiful of the many Lakes in the area.

The camp has a perfect blend of rustic charm with modern upgrades and comforts. Like other camps in this area, water is piped into the home from the lake. This is clean and safe for bathing. We also have a with fresh drinking water just outside the front door (adjacent to the kitchen entrance) with a classic antique hand pump to draw fresh and clean drinking water. We provide a convenient water dispenser inside the kitchen for dispensing the fresh water. Some guests bring bottled water, but that really isn't necessary due to the quality and great taste of the fresh spring water in the well. Note that Maine requires an additional 9% lodging tax to all bookings. Guests will be billed separately for that tax since Airbnb does not include that tax in their rate information.
Lake Hebron is a peaceful lake used primarily for swimming, kayaking and canoes as well as small motorboats. Visitors come to enjoy a relaxing experience and are asked to be respectful of our neighbors. We ask our guests to refrain from playing loud music after hours. Guests may use the fireplace inside the camp, but are asked not to use the antique wood stove in the kitchen. A complete set of rules will included with the key access instructions.
