The location is adjacent to theThoreau Wabanaki Trail,Maine Birding Trail and the Northern Forest Canoe Trail as well as the Moosehead Lake Region & Maine’s Wild North Woods.
The cabins were established in 1901 by Mose Duty, a young Maine guide and local trapper and boat builder who began clearing land and felling logs on these grounds to build his first cabin. He named it Sabotowan – the Abenaki word for nearby Big Spencer Mountain. From this first cabin the history of Spencer Pond Camps was born. The operators, Christine Howe and Dana Black are both registered Maine Guides who take pride in sharing the splendor of the Maine Woods with our guests.
The Magic of Spencer beckons you to come take a step back in time and stay in one of our remote wilderness cabins. Come experience for yourself the unsurpassed scenic splendor and enchantednatural beauty of this special place the way life used to be.

I am a Registered Maine Guide and fifth generation Maine native in the Moosehead Lake Region. My roots run deep in this area on both sides of the family. I have grown up hiking the mountains, rivers, fields, ridges & woods of the East Side / Bottom of Moosehead Lake Region. Along with my husband Dana (who is also a Maine Guide) and my two young daughters we operate seven cabin rentals (Spencer Pond Camps +Lintongan on Moosehead) from May - November. Spencer Pond Camps were owned by my grandparents for 40 years and we are blessed to have the opportunity to be able to share the North Woods and the cabins located on this beautiful township with you. Dana is a commercial fisherman (lobsters in summer and Scallops in winter) and commutes to the coast July-October to haul his traps in Blue Hill Bay. Meanwhile I telecommute from the camps during the week. I have a B.S. is in Wildlife Ecology, and in the far distant past have worked as a park intern and field ornithologist. When we are not working either at the camps(labor of love) or for our day jobs: I enjoy hiking, painting, traveling (Southwest and Anna Maria are favorite destinations), reading, cooking and of course bird watching!
