We wanted a get-a-way the week after Christmas. We wanted peace, quiet, beauty and serenity. Covid has kept us isolated and we felt at least we could be isolated surrounded by natural beauty. We looked to rent a self contained home or cabin because of Covid. We got our negative test results and headed to Wilson Pond Cabins. It was clean, well appointed with all the amenities you need in a kitchen. The water was hot, the cabin was cozy warm even though it was 10 to 30 degrees outside. The view was spectacular and our hosts were very accommodating. It was 5 days of relaxation. We were able to do all our own cooking and the market was a 10 minute drive. A daily hike kept us invigorated. There are so many trails to explore. I'd go back at any time. Great place
Having a beautiful cabin on the water is wonderful- having hosts that are as wonderful is even better. Having trouble with the motor on the rented boat- no problem- Ronda will jump in the water to help. Bob and Ronda are perfect hosts and the cabin and surrounding areas are a testament to that. The cabin was scrubbed clean and cute as a button. Hoping it will be a yearly trip.
I don’t usually do these, so I’ll try to be as cut and dry as possible. My mother rented cabins for her 3 children and their families. Was told pet friendly cabins were available, as my daughter has a therapy dog. When we arrived to check in, there was no one at the office so we had called. The owners were out on theIr boat and gave us the names of the cabins we’d be staying in. All our family’s chose the cabins we wanted and started unloading. After an hour or so the owner, Rhonda finally welcomed us with drink in hand. Told us that the cabin we chose with our dog was not a pet friendly cabin, we immediately offered to switch and was informed it was her fault and she will just have to deep clean, it’s no problem. Then a day later advised my husband who was not present for the conversation it was going to be 100$ up charge. So not only did we get charged for having the dog in the wrong cabin [because she was out enjoying the day on the boat rather than working and welcoming us at check in to inform us where to go] we were also charged a canine fee for the cabin the dog was supposed to be in - and wasn’t. We had rented a boat for 1 1/2 days. At check out, Rhonda informed my mother [whom was not involved in the boat rentals] that she charged my husband and my card 180$ for 2 days of boat rentals. I approached Rhonda while she was talking with her friends, and advised we had only rented the boat for 1 1/2 days. After much attitude, I was advised that she will have to “reimburse me once she gets back to the office, that she did not have time now” while conversing with her friends. I have since emailed the facility x2 and have yet to hear about the status of the boat reimbursement. We were frequently spoken too about our dog barking, when there where other dogs present barking as well. We were also advised that because of their mistake, we would need 1 person in the cabin with the dog at all times. The cabins are very beautiful, the lake is nice - they owners are 6 months into a new business and do not know how to run one. I would recommend if you vacation at this spot to please try to get every transaction in writing because they make promises they cannot keep and take you for a ride financially.…
We rented three cabins for our family members and had an absolutely wonderful time. The cabins are cozy, clean and exactly what we wanted. Having the kitchen stocked with dishes, utensils,etc was great. The lake is beautiful and warm for swimming, paddle boarding and kayaking. Owners Rhonda and Bob are lovely, helpful and so friendly! We will be booking again for next year.
Just came home from Wilson’s Pond Cabins. Loved it!! Cabins are small but comfortable, the owners are wonderful and responsive. Wilsons Pond is the perfect size for kayaking and paddleboarding. Water is warm enough to comfortably swim in. (I stayed at Moosehead Lake previously and the water is freezing since the lake is so deep.) You can kayak to Upper Wilson’s Pond. The cabins are close enough to Greenville so you can easily go out to dinner or go watch the sunset over Moosehead Lake. Already booked next years stay!
