  • Great spot, right on the lake

    "The house is perfectly located, right on Long Lake. And faces West which is great for relaxing in the evening sunshine, with a glass of wine, gazing across the shimmering lake. We were only there for four nights and wished we could have been there longer. Owner was very helpful and responsive and plenty of information provided on local area, restaurants, boat hire etc. All linen and towels supplied; helpful as we had come in from the UK. Had never been up to this part of Maine before, but plan to come back again, and would stay at this place again for sure"

  • Terrific lakefront retreat.

    "My wife, kids and I had a wonderful week here. The lake front is unbeatable as is the water quality in the lake. The sunsets were stunning as were the starry skies. The screened in porch is perfect for dining, reading, schmoozing and doing rewrites, and, on hot nights, we appreciated that there are ceiling fans in every bedroom. My only quibble is we could never figure out how to work the tv (in the living room) and as a result we could watch only the less-than-scintillating meetings of the Bridgeton Town Council."

  • Awesome lake and comfortable private setting

    "Hilamayna is a great mix of a beautiful and relaxing setting where you can enjoy as many, and as strenuous, an outdoor activity as you like. The Lovell area is quintessential northern New England and the local markets and cafes were great. Kezar Lake itself deserves every accolade and is absolutely pristine. The private waterfront has a dock area and a separate sitting area with a gradual, though mostly stony, water entry. The dock access is great for a boat and for jumping off the end and swimming about over a sandy bottom. We kayaked, water skied and tubed, hiked a few trails nearby, and took evening boat rides around the lake. Fishing would have been great. Many evenings we sat around the fire listening to the loons' evening calls. Although the house is situated a few hundred feet up the hill from the water, that also makes for wonderful views and sunsets across the water to the west. The layout of the house is great for lake living, it is well cared for, and it works very well for families. Even in the event of a rainy day there are board games, books, and ping pong. The owners were very easy, prompt, and fair to work with and we hope that we are able to get back next summer."

  • The perfect summer family getaway

    "I orginally wrote this about our 2015 stay: Last August was our third stay at Gilmore Camps and each have been idyllic. Tom is a great host--there if you need something, not if you don't. We have stayed in both Schoohouse and The Lodge--both are comfy and clean, but we like The Lodge better. The complex is wonderfully remote, with a great beach and gradual lake entry. Our grandkids have loved swimming, boating (provided canoes and kayaks), playing in the sand and exploring the lakeshore. One highlight of each year has been exploring the lake by canoe--it's a good trip crossing the lower lake where Gilmore Camps is located and up the narrow connector to the main lake, but it's worth the effort, including a lakeside fairy village built annually by one of the residents. Make sure you locate one of the nearby farms with stands (10 minute), where you can get fresh corn, and go out one evening to Ebenezer's Pub (15-20 minutes), particularly if there's a beer enthusiast in your party. And on the property, be sure to try out the outdoor showers Tom put in a couple of years ago, which are wonderful at night--staring up at a clear sky! Mostly, though, just expect the opportunity to relax and enjoy a family vacation you'll want to repeat over and over. Quiet days at the edge of the lake, peaceful evenings with a crackling fire. Every year, our grandkids hate to leave, and we eagerly look forward going back there this August! UPDATE: Last August (2016) was every bit as wonderful, despite not having the best weather week of the summer, and we look forward to our fifth stay at GIlmore Camps this August."
