“Relaxing time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2011

Once again, this summer we spent a week at Wilson Pond Camps. It was and is always great to see Martine and Bob, and to catch up on each other. They are like family to us. It was just the two of us this year as the young ones are growing up. As always, it was a wonderful week. We feel so recharged when we come home from "Our Place". Martine, you know where I mean :). The loons came right up to us and had babies with them. There is nothing like a relaxing evening looking at the stars and listening to the loons.

As we are enjoying this nice weather for November, Wilson Pond is spoken of often. Maybe we should go for a week and enjoy it there while it is still nice.

Well, if we don't make it this fall, we WILL be back again next summer.

If you need to "regroup", go to Wilson Pond Camps, you will return home as a new person. If you go, I'm almost sure you will want to return.......Try it, you will love it!

Wilson Pond Camps offers charming, clean housekeeping cabins in a lovely setting. Martine and Bob are as wonderful as the previous reviewers noted, and do they ever work hard to keep the camps clean, quiet, and running smoothly! Our cabin was not directly on the lake, but we had a separate dock and chairs by the lake to use, and the cabin did have some views of the water, which we hadn't expected but welcomed. Unfortunately, it was too windy during our trip to do any canoeing or kayaking, but both are available for rental. The kitchen was spotless, even the refrigerator and oven, and we enjoyed having a cup of tea out on the screened porch in the morning. We looked in several cabins on our way out, and you can't go wrong with any of them. We hope to return soon!

Beautiful, neat, well-kept camp by the side of Wilson Pond, Greenville, ME. Near Moosehead Lake. Consider this location for a quiet, peaceful, restful get-away. The camp we stayed in, Moosehead Lake Lodge, was attractively finished and well-furnished. The kitchen contained an enormous array of utensils, a feature we usually find lacking in housekeeping cottages. We enjoyed bird-watching, moose safari, and fishing. Saw about a billion stars on clear nights. We plan to return earlier in the year to catch the warbler migration, early wildflowers and more moose and fishing! The hosts, Bob and Martine Young made us immediately feel like family and we wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else when we return.

Room Tip: Most of the cottages have screened in porches, but one doesn't, so if this is important to you...

My wife and I recently spent a week at Wilson Pond Camps. We were greeted upon our arrival by Martine, who showed us to our cabin. The cabin was clean, comfortable, well stocked with kitchen utensils, and equipped with a fridge/freezer, gas stove, toaster, coffee maker, shower/bathroom, and an inviting bed after a long day of exploring the beautiful area around Greenville. The camps are located only minutes from town, but far enough away to hear the loons calling on the pond and to see the Milky Way in the sky at night. We brought our canoe with us and enjoyed paddling around on the crystal clear "pond", which is larger than most lakes here in PA, tying it up at our own personal boat dock.
If you're looking for a clean, comfortable place to stay while exploring the Moosehead Lake region you won't find a better place than Wilson Pond Camps. You won't find friendlier, more helpful hosts than Martine and her husband Bob. They are genuinely nice people who care about their cabins and the people staying in them. My wife and I have never felt more "at home" while on vacation that we did while staying at Wilson Pond Camps.

Our family of four adventured to the remotest cabin offered by Wilson Pond Camps - Top Secret Lodge. It was luxurious by remote cabin standards (clean, well-kept, running (lake) water, drinking water provided, a well-working 2-burner propane stove, fridge & freezer, propane lights. Lovely dock and even more lovely, quiet lake. At this time of year the flocks of fall warblers were moving through, the loon babies were almost grown, the bugs were low, and fishing for pan-fish (sunfish, white perch) was excellent. We didn't want to leave. This is not a cabin for people who want to be able to take a quick run into town, or who want room service :) But if you want to escape to a lovely wilderness spot, be well taken-care of but still on your own, this is wonderful.
