Camp O'Connel Incredible!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

12 Adult Friends on a five day getaway to "On Golden Pond". We had a great truly memorable time. We explored, walked, spent time on the lake and listened to music. We dined out and we dined in. Truly great meals.The home is beautifully furnished and fully equipped. The kitchen is magnificent. The beds are incredibly comfortable. The entertainment system was user friendly. The ambiance inside by the fire, the beautiful views of the lake. "Speechless" We will be going back for sure. This property has the best of what Maine has to offer outside with the comforts of home. The O'Connels created a majestic spacious home that is clean and inviting. Perfect for creating memorable moments with friends and family.

We cannot express enough how perfect the house was. We visited for a week in July, 3 families all together. The pictures of the house didn't do it justice! It is spectacular and Beth is such a wonderful person to deal with. Any questions we had, she responded within minutes.

The lake provided constant entertainment for all. We hope to visit again next year.

A great house on a beautiful lake!

My family had the best time staying at Camp O'Connell. We hiked, explored, swam, relaxed and had a great family vacation. This is the perfect place for people of all ages to unwind and enjoy the beauty of the Belgrade lakes. We want to come back! The house has everything and is in perfect condition. Highly recommend.

A Well Needed Recharge!

  • 5 of 5

It is with the most sincere pleasure that I write this review. I don't even know where to begin; hiking Mt. Phillip, fishing, kayaking, exploring and oh, those cinnimon and blueberry muffins at Days! And just the chance to take a step back and re-aquaint ourselves with the family. It seems these days that life pushes us so fast, and up at your home, the time just wrapped us all together and allowed everyone to have so much fun together.

Seeing the bald eagles/ospreys and hearing the loons on our pre-dinner lake cruises just topped off our day. Exploring the islands (Crooked, Blueberry, Taconnic, Hoyt) and taking the boat upstream to town for coffee in the morning was a great way to start. And tell your husband I almost had that big Pike!

But what I enjoyed most was seeing everyone enjoying themselves. We cannot wait to get back.

By the way, my wife wants your kitchen as well as wanting to know where you got your pillows and linens!

A true, whole hearted Thanks!!!

Warm regards,

Amazing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our vacation at this wonderful home. It was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. The kitchen is perfect for cooking and cleaning for a larger group. Waking up to the sound of the loons and being able to sit on the very private dock was lovely. The screened in porch was the perfect place to have our meals and the back deck so peaceful for cocktails and relaxing. The children were able to swim from the dock which they loved. The house is even better than it looks online. Highly recommend it.

The Belgrade Lakes area is known best as the inspiration for the story and film On Golden Pond. The lakes in the area (7 beautiful interconnected lakes) offer great boating, fishing, waterskiing and swimming. Enjoy the day at the lake or going through the countryside shopping treasures and antiquing. If you prefer a game of golf, the highly acclaimed course in Belgrade Lakes is located just a few miles away. A day trip to Bar Harbor lets you enjoy more of Maine from this wonderful location. Bring your boat or rent at the marina located on Great Pond. Running or cycling around the lake fun and challenging. Hiking or mountain biking are also enjoyable.
