An impressive authentic hand-crafted log cabin with cathedral ceiling and three bedrooms. Set apart from the main camp yard with its own private lawn stretching down to the shore. Spacious screened in porch complete with swing. Hidden deep in the woods and nestled at the foot of Little Spencer Mountain. Kayak/Canoe Scenic mountain views, wildlife, remoteness and undeveloped shoreline. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).
Outside on the porch, the swing provides a perfect place for an afternoon nap. You can also enjoy a meal at the large table, watch wildlife from the comfort of your rocking chair or sleep outside listening to the chorus from the nearby bog. Guests enjoy watching for herons roosting in the firs in front of the cabin, eagles soaring overhead, snowshoe hare on the lawn, or even the occasional Moose ambling out of the bog down along the shore. Inside the main cabin there are two downstairs bedrooms with twin beds (can convert to kings). There is also a loft which has a third bedroom with two twin beds. The dining/living area has a futon which can be converted into a double bed. The floor plan is open with a cathedral ceiling and an open kitchen and dining room. Aptly named, this is where the "moose" ambling into the camp yard often make their first appearance.
Water can be refilled in the center of the camp ground from our well.
Our fully furnished cabin does not have electricity and is non-modernized by design. The ambience and conveniences you will find are reminiscent of "Little House in the Big Woods" completely comfortable and functional, but a far cry from the whirring sounds of loud generators, noisy campgrounds, and the distractions of electronic devices. This atmosphere conveys and draws you into a world where life comes at a slower pace, simplified, and you can share with your family the way life used to be many years ago. Many of our guests find this is their opportunity to truly get away from it all and go "unplugged" to relax and rejuvenate themselves. Cabin rental includes a fully furnished housekeeping cabin, canoe, kayaks, mountain bikes, all linens, seasoned dry firewood for your woodstove, "camp" wood for the fire pits, dishwashing soap, matches, toilet paper, plus an authentic remote Maine Woods experience!
Cabin has a fully equipped kitchen that includes propane refrigerator and gas stove (cooktop and oven) with all cooking utensils, pots and pans, dishes, etc. Many “Old-fashioned” kitchen tools that allow you to mix your cakes, perk your coffee (or use a French press) and make your toast with ease as we do not have electricity. Old-fashioned hand water pump are inside the kitchen at the sink and provide access to pond water for washing dishes/bodies /etc.
Kerosene and gas lights
Cabin has its own private clean outhouse. We believe that this plumbing “out back” experience is in itself authentic & hearkens
back to earlier times and ways
Shower stall inside the cabin, and hot showers can be taken by heating water on the wood stove and filling the solar shower bag or filling it up and allowing it to heat in the sun.
Cabin has a wood heating stove and a supply of wood and kindling so you can easily start your own fires and sit back beside the
fire to enjoy its bone-warming heat.
Cabin has a park style charcoal barbecue stand.
There is a central fireplace where you are welcome to build a bonfire and toast marshmallows, make s’mores, tell ghost stories or
simply enjoy the flicker of a moonlit fire. We also include "camp wood" which we place by the fireplace so you can enjoy the ambience of an evening camp fire.
Cabin has twin beds which can be converted into king beds at your request. Cabin also has a futon that converts to a double bed. We also have rollaway beds and cribs available upon request. Beds are provided with warm blankets and crisp sheets. Homemade quilts and afghans lie at the foot of each bed for you to snuggle with while reading a book or drift off to sleep under while listening to the yodel of the
Docks, canoes and kayaks are included as part of your cabin rental (paddles and life preservers for all sizes included). Children can spend the day fishing off the docks and will be rewarded with a variety of fish. We also have a sailboat and a rowboat which guests are welcome to enjoy at no charge.
We rent motorized boats (5 hp and under) upon request. Guests are allowed to launch their own boats with small motors (10 hp and
under). Items towed behind boats, Jet skis and large boats are prohibited. For those anglers and boaters that desire to explore and play in other areas, we have limited space available to store larger boats and trailers.
We have a quarter mile private drive that winds down from the main logging road to the campground.
We have a series of well marked nature trails that start in the campground and extends to various locations near the pond. The trailhead to Little Spencer Mountain is 2 miles away and is a challenging and rewarding hike for many of our guests. The logging roads in our area provide a perfect opportunity for mountain bikers. We have a limited supply of mountain bikes that guests can use at no additional charge as part of their cabin rental.
Hunting parties are welcome during the Spring Turkey Season and fall. We welcome hunting dogs as well. Hunting is not allowed from the start of the driveway down to the campground to ensure safety for all guests. After a long day of hunting we understand the
value of a warm cabin and hot food. Upon request., we will gladly keep your woodstove stoked and stick food you have prepared in the oven so it is ready at your expected arrival time. Bear baiting is not allowed in the township so unfortunately we cannot accommodate bear hunters who wish to hunt over bait.

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!
