I arranged for a group of 22 people (church group) to stay at A Cabin by the Pond for a week. We rented four cabins. We were welcomed by a wonderful couple, Millie and Paul, who operate the day to day of the facility. They are both outstanding people and could not have been more helpful. I asked for several...

We LOVED our 2 night stay. Cabins are neat, clean, comfortable and all have a great view of the pond (where the cow moose and her twins make an appearance several times a day) Just out of town far enough to have peace and quiet, but close enough that running in to eat or shop is a 5 minute drive....

These cabins provide a beautiful escape from every day Iife. I return year after year and the quality of care that Jim, Cat Sue and the caretakers give their guests I have not found. . . anywhere. Their attention to detail and generosity is unsurpassed. - look no further.

We had a wonderful stay! We stayed in the "church cabin", which was right by the pond. It was very cute and very clean. I liked staying here because it was very homey and full of wildlife. I had my doubts because of the location, but you feel like you are out in the wilderness. We did have a moose...

Millie is an excellent and attentive hostess. The Dream Cabin and amenities were better than advertised! We were warned it would be cozy for 4, and it was just fine for an overnight stay. With the little porch, fire pit, and local amenities we were just gathering and sleeping anyway! If you have a lot of gear with you, a...

We stayed in June and Paul & Millie were over the top accommodating us - even allowed us to move to a larger cabin half way through our stay -- It's close to town, easy to find yet seems peaceful & isolated once you arrive. We will certainly stay there in the future!

Millie and Paul are wonderful! The beds are VERY confortable, BUT there are NO black out curtains. They put blankets in the windows, but then you have to take them down when you want to let the sun it. We will for sure be back, but would love it if they added black out curtains

Millie and Paul were extremely easy to work with and even switched cabins for us when half our party could not be there. The kitchen area was small but was all we needed for our 2 nights there. We had a campfire the last night which was lots of fun also.

After planes, trains, boats, buses, shuttles & cars....Cabin by the Pond was such a relaxing treat. Very complete cabin,quaint, quiet, & comfortable. Paul & Millie were warm & accommodating yet nearly invisible. The grounds are natural & immaculate. A great value in a star location. Beds are exceptional! Open common area with nice fire pit gives a lodge feeling to...
