A beautiful location right on the lake! The hosts were responsive to all questions, an 8-person tent was available and spacious, a propane grill was provided along with a picnic table, fire pit and other seating. There are a lot of things to do in the area and the hosts graciously provided information for local attractions. The bathroom/outhouse was very clean as well. We absolutely loved our stay and plan for a return visit! Great hosts, amazing location if you're looking to unplug and get away!

What a wonderful getaway! An awesome spot for people who want to completely disconnect. We cooked every meal over the campfire and saw moose, a lynx, bald eagles, and loons!

Wish we had stayed longer!
Amazing view with great tent site and fire pit with ample wood. So many little details: maps, fire starters, propane grill, kayaks. Clean outhouse! The sure was well maintained, and the lake was wonderful. We could’ve just stayed here all week!

The site was beautiful! We had a great time camping there for two nights. There was very minimal light pollution, it was easy to find with the directions provided. The site was right on the water, which was a blast with the kayaks they provided, and our dog loved it. And the outhouse was very clean and nicely made. There was multiple areas to sit and relax and a nice cooking grill over the fire. We all enjoyed our time and enjoyed seeing a moose on the way to the camp! Highly recommend for a nice, peaceful get away. (None of us saw any ticks which made this an even more peaceful experience!)

This place is a dream
This property is absolutely beautiful. It is peaceful, serene, and delightfully secluded. I was very grateful for all of the provided supplies (firewood, matches, a tent, etc.). You never know how badly you'll need those things until you really need them! The hosts also provided thorough directions and helpful information. This place is a perfect example of a getaway. I would 1000% recommend this property to anyone that likes to camp and doesnt mind to disconnect.

pretty, not as quiet as we expected
The mountain and lake views were unparalleled, as was the wildlife - eagles and loons were abundant. While plenty of quietness was found when walking along the beach, the campsite itself (the front yard of the owner's lake cabin) is off a short driveway to a busy road. We were concerned about our dogs and surprised at the routine traffic noise from cars (and a couple trucks) going back and forth, particularly during 3 to 7PM, but some sporadic car traffic continued until 9PM and a one or two in the middle of the night, on our first day there (the Tuesday after Labor Day Monday), less of an issue on Wednesday, but still noticeable. The outhouse, propane grill, and fire circle amenities were wonderful and we saw more stars than we ever have in our lives. A beautiful area!

Slice of Heaven in Northern ME
Awesome slice of Earth in the Great North Woods. Most incredible moonrises and sunrises I've seen in a long time, if ever! Great to have access directly to the lake with included kayaks and life preservers. Abundant wood and great firepit made for cozy evenings, and grill grate over firepit made for easy transitions to/from cooking and chilling. Great tree setup for hammock hanging, beautiful setting, super clean and well built outhouse with solar lights. Didn't see a soul all 4 days we were there (except 1 guy walking the rocky shore as we packed up to leave). If getting away from it all is your cup of tea, this is the spot to do it. Leave it better than you found it, so everyone can enjoy.

The property was pristine and beautiful as was the lake. The amenities were very clean and lots of thoughtful touches. The only improvement I would suggest is to either limit vehicles to having 4 wheel drive capabilities or improve the driveway. We did get stuck but was able to flag down help to pull out our front wheel drive van out onto the road.

You will not be disappointed!
What an amazing experience we had here! The beauty, peacefulness, privacy and serenity we experienced here was beyond our expectations. We were planning on taking some day hiking trips but we were so smitten with the place we didn’t want to leave! Instead we hike the rocky shoreline, the water level was low enough that we could make it all the way out and around the island. The firewood and gas grill provided by the hosts were greatly appreciated. They were also very responsive to my questions ahead of our trip. Thank you!

Fantastic spot right on the lake with a great view of Katahdin and other Baxter State Park peaks. Easy to get to from either Greenville or Millinocket on good dirt roads. We fished, swam and walked along the shoreline. Water levels were quite low. Lake depth is controlled by a dam. It was a little too windy to kayak during the day, but calmed down at dusk and early morning.

Breath-taking Katahdin views!!
This property had an amazing view and all the privacy you’d ever want! The rocky beach would be best suited for people who are very shore footed. We brought our two pups who had a blast swimming and chomping on driftwood. A very unique spot for those who really want to get away from it all! Would definitely recommend!

Dream Lakeside Stay
This is the place to stay. Its just outside the town of Greenville. You have lake access with kayak and canoes to use. Fire pit and tables for easy outdoor relaxing. They have a book with great local recommendations, Baxter is just a drive away. The outhouse is clean and well maintained. They provide plenty of wood, kindle, matches. If you have issues with your tent they have one on property which is very convenient. Also a BBQ to utilize. I would highly recommend and would book again.
