A warm, rustic, old-time Maine camp. Large kitchen, picture windows to the pond, deck with grill, and open loft plan make this cabin great for families. The swimming is great, with dock, raft, and wading area with rocks to sit on. The view of Parks Pond Bluff is really special. Take one of two kayaks or a canoe around the pond, known for being relatively quiet and clean with good fishing. Hike up the side of the bluff for a spectacular view, or through the woods to nearby Eagle Bluff. A great place to be in summer to escape the heat, but the gas-fired stove makes for a cozy place stay to see the fall foliage as well.
*Before June 30 or after September 6 you can rent for as few two nights.*
This cabin on Parks Pond has belonged to the Still family for 45 years, and I've been going 'upta camp' since I was three years old. I wish I could stay there all summer!
Doug Still purchased this cabin in 1969
It has been a favorite place for family and all the guests we've had over the years, with lots of good memories and great karma. Set in the woods, you really feel like you are away from it all. Swim, hike up the bluff, kayak, fish, or just read on the deck with a cold brew, there's not much to disturb you around here. If you are an early riser, the sunrise over the pond fills the camp with morning light. You might hear a loon too!
The best part of being here is spending time swimming, kayaking, hiking, and hanging out with family and friends in a special place. There's no reason to leave! However, Bangor is only 15 miles away with everything you need - supermarkets, movie theaters, restaurants, the mall, and much more. If you are in the area during harness racing time, Bangor Raceway is always a good time. This is a great home base for the American Folk Festival in late August, and Bangor also has Waterfront Concerts all summer long. Acadia National Park is only 1 hour away, a great day trip to break up your stay on Parks Pond.
After years of vacationing along the coast of Maine we moved inland a bit to try something new. From early morning kayaking through the mist on the water to see a pair of eagles (2 of the 4 living at the pond) to returning at dusk to again see the eagles, as well as belted kingfishers and the ever present loons, this was the ideal place for a change of pace. The cabin, though rustic, has everything you need to enjoy your stay allowing you to feel right at home. The views of the sunrises and sunsets on the water are breathtaking. Sitting on the dock in between kayak trips around the pond is extremely relaxing and allows you to watch the loons on the water as well as the eagles circling above the bluff. (And yes we did climb the bluff. After climbing straight up the view was worth it.)
The cabin is pretty much centrally located, we were able to go into Acadia National Park for hiking without any difficulty. Doug, the owner, checks in to make sure your stay is enjoyable. The neighbors are very friendly, even offering us the use of their kayaks since there were 4 of us and only 2 kayaks. All-in-all it was the most relaxing week we've had in a long time and we are already planning a return trip next year.
With a beautiful lake at the back door, the camp was a perfect escape from the routine vacation for us. The property served as a base from which my family and I explored the down east and mid coast region of Maine. The kids, 7, 11 and 15 enjoyed simply hanging at the cabin and passing the day swimming and kayaking the lake... And yes it even offers wifi...A bit of a surprise but a nice convenience. Evenings at the camp were quite peaceful with the occasional serenade of the resident Loons. We were even fortunate enough to have a Bald Eagle as a neighbor! For nature lovers looking to stay off the beaten path and away from the hustle and bustle commercial of "Anywhere USA", this property offers a sense of place that fits the bill!
We had a fantastic relaxing vacation and the place was great. Plenty of room for 2 adults 3 young and a big dog. We were a little disappointed to found out they were not a lot of fish in the lake (the all purpose for the boys vacation) but The neighbors on the left were very helpful with letting us know where to found a good fishing place and some good hiking spot ;-)
Will definitely will want to go back at some point ;-)
My wife and I, along with her sister and her sister's boyfriend stayed here for almost a week in early October. We all agreed that our stay was wonderful! We arrived at the peak of fall and views around the lake and from the top of Parks Pond Bluff were amazing. The owner, Doug, took care of everything we asked for and more, surprising us with numerous extras that came in handy during our stay. The cabin itself was cozy and warm. The beds and furniture were comfortable and perfect for just lounging around. And the fireplace was more than ample to heat the whole place on those chilly autumn evenings. I would highly recommend staying here and hope to come back in the future!
We had a great time at the Lakefront "camp" - the lake is beautiful and great for swimming, a kayak ride or just hanging on the dock. The house was clean and cozy and had everything we needed for a relaxing week away. It was nice to be off the beaten path but close enough to stores when we found that we had forgotten the syrup for our pancake breakfast.
We had a great time at the cabin. Our days were filled with lots of swimming, kayaking, canoeing, and fishing (the cabin comes with 2 kayaks and a canoe!). At night, we enjoyed sitting by the fire pit and listening to the loons. We also made several trips to Acadia National Park, which is just an hour away.
The house was clean and well-maintained. The owner was a pleasure to deal with - the communication was prompt, and the entire process was very efficient from start to finish.
A great place. Thank you!
