This place is amazing!! Everything you need for a comfortable stay, including fishing gear, firewood, life jackets, utensils and cookware. The views are breath taking, and kayaking on the pond was very enjoyable. My now fiancee ( who proposed to me here!) and I will be returning, and have family stay with us there. One of my new favorite places, and we live 4 hours away.

Nature Lover and Dog Paradise
My husband and I had the most wonderful stay on Sterling Pond with our two dogs. I can't say enough about the camp location! We filled our time with row boating, swimming, walking in the woods, and relaxing by the fire. We would definitely book again! The fireplace heats the cabin nicely at night, but if it went out we woke up chilly. I would bring heavier blankets next time and a couple more pillows.

A+ mix of rustic camp & amenities
The perfect mix of rustic camping and amenities! We stayed in the well-stocked, comfortable "ice House" cabin complete with a queen "pull out" bed and stovetop and rocking chair, air mattresses optional, activities in cabinet. Large shed full of activities for the whole family, fishing gear, life jackets for the rowboat, canoe, and even a paddleboat, bocce ball and more! Easy instructions (as long you read them!) and well kept grounds. There's a even a grill! The "pond" is more of a small lake, clean cool water and lots of fish to catch with lures and rods provided. Beautiful scenery, no close neighbors but sounds from vacation homes carry across the lake. Thousands of stars in the dusty sky and a moon mirrored lake at night are the perfect backdrop for evening campfire in the 100 yr old freestanding chimney. We picked wild rasberries and harvested chives for our coal-baked potatoes. Spring water provided for drinking and doing dishes. Nicest outhouses (2) I've ever seen, stocked with TP, wipes and sanitizer. Hummingbird feeder provided great entertainment from the porch. We couldn't have asked for a better time. Hope to be back next summer!

We had a great stay! The cabin is beautiful (!) with nice access to the pond. Scott is a great host, super helpful and responsive. I can recommend this place.

Great little camp and area
Fun with bocce and canoe
The cabin was very nice and clean. There was a 3-burner gas stove, plus lots of pots & pans, dishes, and utensils. No need to bring any of that! No sink, but a barrel of fresh water with a spigot. The pond is lovely and clear. Just for information (not criticism): The bed has a very thin, firm mattress. If you come in the summer, don't expect a quiet place. There are a lot of jet skis at those camps across the pond.

Relaxing and restful
What a great place. It was just as it was listed. So happy we went and we will likely go back in future. Great property and the Pond was awesome. Thanks for having us.

This site was so beautiful. We wished we had had a few more days to explore it. The boats were great, the cabin was very comfortable, and at night it was very quiet. There were a number of little amenities that made our stay that much more special such as the campfire accessories and the large inner tube. We would definitely come back to this site. Also, Scott our host was very accommodating and easy to talk to on the phone about our accommodations which we had to change on short notice due to weather problems

Quiet & beautiful right on the lake
This camp site was amazing! It was private on our side with a few houses on the other, just close enough to see the campfires but far enough to not worry about privacy. Ice House was beautiful with lots of little touches. There was even some bug spray in the corner cabinet and games to play with the kids. The caretaker's cabin was rustic, but the netting worked perfectly. We all had a great time, even during black fly season.

Columbus Day Weekend Stay
Our 3 day stay at the icehouse camp was wonderful, the owner thought of every little detail to make it a great stay. Though the camp doesn't have electricity it does have a very innovative lighting and stereo setup utilizing batteries. We did not know what we were up against so we brought everything and the kitchen sink, and none of it was needed. The owner provided linens, candles, snacks, potable water in a 5 gallon jug, the stove worked wonderfully, and the woodstove kept us quite warm. the caretaker provided pre-cut wood for our stay, and had three outdoor fire pits with wood already in the pits. The icehouse cabin was wonderful and appears to be winter proofed. The caretakers cabin is in great shape but appears to be in the process of replacing the chinking between the logs. This cabin would be great for anyone to stay in during the hot summer nights.
The two outhouses were very clean and TP and Lye was provided.
Our Aussie was able to roam the property freely, as far as I could tell we were the only one's on our side of the pond. My wife was hooked on fishing, in fact she caught a good sized bass.
Like I said this was a wonderful stay and I highly recommend trying it.

Our family had a wonderful stay on Sterling Pond. It’s a beautiful property with lots to explore. While there are other houses dotted along the pond, we were pleasantly surprised to find the noise level was quite low & the activity on the water minimal. The cabin was cozy, clean & well maintained. The grounds outside were nicely cleared out, with many level spaces one could pitch a tent if desired. Conveniently, the property has multiple spots to have fires (which were well stocked with wood). There are also several spots to access the water & wild blueberries growing along the shore. We enjoyed the space’s natural beauty & it’s unique antique touches throughout the property.
