Enjoy the adventure and beauty of Maine from our cabin perched on the shore of quiet Gilman Pond. This was the first cabin on the pond which is a little-known gem. The lake is shallow making it a haven for birds rather than motorboats. This is an ideal location for nature lovers. Relax with a good book, paddle/fish the pond, and hike/bike the hills in nearby Carrabassett Valley.

Christine's cabin on the pond was a dream! It was super cute and cozy and clean. We canoed on the pond everyday and cooked outside. The scenery was picturesque. Christine was a great host - super responsive and generous. Her post was completely accurate: there is no service or wifi, and it was great to be out-of-touch for a few days. We absolutely loved the cabin and already talk about going back!

I don't have enough good things to say about Gilman Camp! The cabin was absolutely beautiful inside; all redone with white pine. It was bright, spacious, and had everything we needed. The kitchen had all the cooking implements we needed and everything was super clean. I usually tend to re-wash everything but did not feel the need to at all here. The windows overlooking the pond were the best TV ever. We listened to the loons and watched the nature show nightly. I spent an entire day on the little dock in the sun followed by canoeing and fishing in the late afternoon. The bed was comfortable and again immaculate. The bathroom was great (no shower was not a problem - we boiled some water, added it to some cold water and had splash showers outside!) and again super clean. We kept talking about how perfect everything was and how we wanted to live in a little cabin just like this! My partner and I are from the Pacific Northwest and spent 2 weeks traveling around ME, MA, and NH and this was by far the highlight of our vacation. We would love to come back to Gilman Pond! I highly recommend this cabin.

My sister and I had the most amazing stay here! The cabin is absolutely idyllic. The views of the pond are breaktaking. The cabin itself was perfect for us. It is modern and clean and very comfortable. We cooked in and had absolutely everything we needed to make a lovely meal. We wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you Christine for making our trip so special!

Hi! I love to learn about far flung places, then go there. My husband and I work full-time but try to get away to see new places as often as possible. Our travels have taken us to the Himalayas, the South Pacific, the streets of London, the Mediterranean Sea, and the mountains of eastern Europe among others. But our camp in Maine is still one of our favorite spots in the world. We enjoy meeting new people and taking the road less traveled.

Our motto as guests is to leave a place better than we found it.
We'd like to host guests who appreciate nature and respect the cabin and guidelines. We'll do our best to make you feel at home!
