My wife and I spent our 16th annual week at Spencer Pond Camps in October of last year. Our first week in 1994 was on our honeymoon and Spencer Pond remains one of the most special places in our lives. We have only missed two years in that time. Dana and Christie are wonderful hosts and seem to always achieve that most elusive quality of being non-obtrusive, while at the same time being attentive to your needs at the camp. Whether a person comes to Spencer Pond Camps for a naturalist experience, a sporting experience, a family experience, or just to have a quiet and peaceful meditiative experience, they can find what they are looking for here. The amenities are basic, but very comfortable. The everchanging scenery is beautiful. This place is a very unique find in today's ultra-connected, elecronic landscape. If you can't stand the thought of being without every single modern convenience, this experience may not be for you. But if you want to experience the Maine North Woods in a traditional camp atmosphere with knowledgeable and gracious hosts, Spencer Pond Camps is hard to beat.

- 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
