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.

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!

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.

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 😀

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!

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.
