Borestone Base Camp
The yurt was very spacious and the beds were super comfortable! Potable water was provided and easily accessible, and there’s a little path straight to the lake that has a stunning view and Monica provided cooking utensils/equipment that made our lives much easier. She was prompt to respond and provided very clear, useful instructions on how to get to the site and how to use the amenities. We would definitely stay here again (:

We had such a great time camping here! Monica was very knowledgable about things to do in the area, places to eat, etc. The yurt was absolutely adorable and had everything we needed and then some. Very thoughtfully equipped.

This was such a wonderful escape! Packing was a breeze because Monica has everything you need right at camp, and the breakfast was amazing (maple buttered bread for the win). Beds were cozy, kayaking/paddleboarding down a nature path, and firewood all split for you.

Borestone Base Camp
From the moment we walked up to the campsite what we experienced I can only describe as magical. Monica did an absolutely superb job making us feel welcome, giving us local recommendations (food, hikes, etc.), and y'all don't even get me started on THAT BREAKFAST!! Let me tell you, it was a piece of local HEAVEN! If you have the opportunity you simply MUST try Monica's add-on breakfast. Beyond the breakfast, the site itself was clean, well kept and had a small trail to a beautiful pond. Overall it was such a great time for me and my spouse to relax, reconnect, and get some good nature time in. Thank you Monica for such a great experience!

Nice Place, great host!
Monica was an excellent host and she has a beautiful property.She knows the area very well and has lots of suggestions for things to do. We had fun using the kayaks she provided to go around the pond, which is large. The camp was very functional and private. Yurt beds were comfortable. The only drawbacks were misquitos and some noise from the road. We loved staying here and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys nature.

Great camping on a beautiful pond!
Monica has a beautiful spot with access to so much adventure ! We stayed in a large canvas tent with solar lights and all the amenities you would need. We were greeted with a ready to lite fire. The twinkle of the solar lights were just enough. There was easy access to an outhouse right across from the tent. A trail leads to a gorgeous pond were kayaks were available to use. The sunrise was breathtaking on the dock as well ! We were close to everything we wanted to explore. We were lucky enough to chat with our hostess and she was so nice and had great suggestions for hikes and local tips. On our 3 day trip we saw 2 waterfalls, hiked some trails, saw the b52 crash memorial and got up close and personal with a moose !! Great spot to be close to so much nature and adventure ! Thanks again Monica for a great stay 😀

Great place, great host
Staying at Monica's yurt in Monson, Maine was a uniquely wonderful experience. She did so many thoughtful things to make our stay as enjoyable, welcoming, and comfortable as possible - including leaving homegrown squash on our picnic table for us, making kayaks available to use on adjacent Spectacle Pond (a beautiful place where we were serenaded by loons), providing all the necessities to make s'more on the campfire (which was stocked with cordwood), and making great suggestions for things to do in the area. Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet her because she was away dealing with a family emergency, but her kindness and consideration were felt every moment we were there.

My family and I had a great time here at Monica's. Lots of thoughtful touches, smore's kits for my kiddos, lanterns and "petty" solar powered lights and lanterns in and out, a small herb garden, the use of 4 kayaks and travel padels. She was very helpful when we texted with questions about directions, where to eat, etc. Beautiful area with lots to do if you want to adventure, hike, and see some beautiful sites. The only "negative" about this site would be noisy traffic coming from the busy road behind the campsite. All in all a great stay!

Serenity with a smile
Monica is the hostess with the most! The yurt was so comfortable and a beautiful place to stay. Monica is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and gave us superb recommendations of hikes, restaurants and more. We had a great time and will love to return.

Relax and adventure in Monson
My three daughters and I had the pleasure of staying at Monica’s in Monson. We arrived to her friendly smile and a tent decorated so thoughtfully with fairy wings, nets (for water fun, not fairy catching😉) and beautiful wild flowers. She even had a craft for my girls, fairy lanterns to light up our camp. Everything was laid out with thought, use and purpose. The outdoor kitchen was easy to use and we enjoyed the s’mores and fresh coffee. I found it easy to use both the outside kitchen and fire pit for both breakfast and dinners. Location- amazing! My girls and I loved kayaking right from Monica’s dock. We saw heron, loons and Eagles. It was so peaceful and made the morning delightful. We were able to hit up Greenville easily for a day trip and Monson to hike Borestone. We will definitely be back for more hiking and kayaking.

Adorable, clean, and fun
Such a cute and cozy glamping experience! She did a great job and made it very enjoyable with popcorn, water, snacks, and more. Beautiful pond to over look as well.
