So we start out with the camps being full but there was space at Lintongan cabin; appox. 6 miles away on Moosehead and we decided to give it a go. This turned out to be a blessing. We loved Lintogan so much we didn't want to leave and next year will try for a longer stay. The perfect kick off... More

We gather our busy familys once a year and head to Spencer Pond Camps, its safe quiet relaxing and off the grid. If you have a busy life and need to just get away from it all this is the place. I wouldn't take my kids anyplace else they have it all!

I have been camping in the North Woods for over 30 years and when we found Spencer Pond we thought we would give it a try. This is the place we have been looking for and will now be the destination for the annual spring journey to the woods. From eagles flying directly overhead to bears in the road or... More

We all had a great time in Maine; however, the Lintongan cabin is not worth $64/night/person for a party of 6 for 7 days. For this price, we were expecting a more customer friendly experience. The roads are not fit for traditional vehicles, so you need to leave your truck 1-2 blocks away from the cabin and then physically carry... More

We are truly disappointed this guest left unhappy and we wish they had provided this feedback upon departure. We try to disclose everything about our accommodations upfront so folks are well aware of the pricing, remote location, and rustic nature of our cabins. It doesn’t really behoove us to do otherwise or be unfriendly. That said sometimes we do need... More

Always a relaxing trip to a wonderful place! We have been going there since 1980 in the spring, fall and for deer hunting. We took several years off during the period when Bob and Jill were in charge and it is wonderful to see that Dana and Christy have restored the camps to their previous glory.

There is nothing like a trip to this camp to bring you back to what's important in life. Being off grid with no phone to check or email to write, you remember very quickly there is far more to life. The camps come equipped with everything you need to settle right in. They are quintessential Maine on so many levels.... More

My husband and I have been traveling to Spencer Pond Camps every year since 2011 - and I'm about to book next year's (2017) trip. The Moosehead Lake region, and Spencer Pond Camps in particular, is our happy place. I've tried, but it's impossible to wipe the grins off our face the whole time we're there. We've stayed in two...

As always we had a wonderful stay. This is truly a place to go for piece and solitude. Christy and Dana are great and they have made coming to Spencer Ponds like a home away from home. We only wish that we could come more than once a year. Worth every penny!! Marlene & Dave L

We have stayed at other rustic camps in this area but Spencer pond Camps tops them all. We stayed in Bemsis, which is perfect for a couple. The cabin was very clean, sunny in the morning and everything we needed but our food and clothing was there waiting for us when we arrived. The owners make it clear on their... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Unwind "unplugged and off the grid" in natural beauty, the way life used to be. Built in 1901, Spencer Pond Camps are an authentic and historic Maine Sporting Camp. They are the only cabins on the pond and sit in the shadow of Little Spencer Mountain. 14 miles via dirt roads from our closest neighbors, on an undeveloped and scenic pond. Recognized as an environmental leader, we offer you a choice of six rustic wilderness lakeside housekeeping cabins - each with its own unique personality. The cabins are fully furnished for comfort including screened porches, rocking chairs, woodstoves, libraries and homemade quilts on the beds.Canoes and kayaks are provided free of charge. Plumbing is "out back" and relaxation is everywhere, non-modernized without electricity and reminiscent of "Little House in the Big Woods" these cabins will take you back in time. ... more   less
