About the Property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to Camp Hope on beautiful Lake Winnecook (also known as Unity Pond) in Central Maine. Thank you for considering our cabin style camp for your vacation. It beckons to those with an appreciation for nature and a tranquil escape to the real world. At our private and secluded location you will have the opportunity to experience the great outdoors while having all the comforts of home. Even though Camp Hope is secluded it is only 2-1/2 miles to an authentic general store where they make the best pizza around and sell the cheapest gasoline .

Spend your leisure time at our retreat and enjoy the privacy and spectacular views. Lightning Bugs (Fireflies) light up the evening sky along with the stars. Many times wild turkeys and deer cross our open meadow. There is nothing like fishing on the lake or from the shoreline as you listen to the sounds of nature. There are majestic loons with their haunting calls to complete the Maine experience.

Nearby in the town of Unity, there is a recreational park named the Field of Dreams, along with a full service grocery store and several restaurants. There is a golf course on the lake shore nearby and weekly stock car racing at Unity Raceway. We are about 30 minutes from the coast – Belfast is our county seat and a wonderful city for walking down to the harbor and checking out the shops.

If your pace is a little bit slower, relax on our spacious screened-in porch facing a 2 acre field to let your mind and soul join harmoniously with nature. A nightly campfire and making s’mores should be part of your Camp Hope experience!
