Lovely private camp right on the lake. Close to Acadia and perfect base camp for some late summer adventures. Cabin was adorable, clean, and all instructions were very clear from the host. We had a great time!

We had a wonderful three nights at this rustic lakeside cabin. The heater was great for chilly evenings. We loved having access to the canoe to explore the lake. We even saw several bald eagles! Highly recommend this special spot.

I cannot recommend El Floretta Tiny Camp enough. My boyfriend and I stayed here for a night and can’t wait to return next season. Frank was extremely attentive and communicative leading up to, during and after our stay. We took the canoe out on the water twice, made a fire, read in the hammock — it was truly an oasis.
