Sowagan means "Eagle Nest" in Abenaki language.All of our cabins offer rustic remote accomodations, off grid with no electricity. Plumbing is "out back" and relaxation is everywhere. Return to the days of Little House in the Big Woods in this one room cabin. Two twin beds (or one king). Sits up from the shore on the edge of the woods. This cabin has an excellent porch from which to bird watch or sit and watch the many snowshoe hares that frequent the campground.

Additional Location Information

Spencer Pond Camps are the only cabins on the Pond and we are fourteen miles from our closest neighbors. That won't help you find us but it gives you some idea of how the Camps are remote and a long distance from towns and traffic. More specifically, we are located 34 miles north of Greenville in the heart of the Maine Highlands region, known for its history and natural beauty. The many lakes, rivers and streams around us offer fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and white water rafting. The numerous mountains are a hiker's paradise. The Moosehead region has the largest population of moose in the State, and the Camps are on a newly developed birding trail.
Hidden deep in the woods and nestled at the foot of Little Spencer Mountain. Spencer Pond is classified by the State as a highly valued, protected body of water due to its scenic mountain views, wildlife, remoteness and undeveloped shoreline. The Pond affords visitors an undisturbed setting to view and photograph wildlife and water birds. Jet Skis are banned and outboard motors over 10 hp are discouraged.

Our Camps are located in East Middlesex Township, bordered by Maine Public Lands, private conservation lands and an ecological reserve. By road, the Camps are an hour's drive from Greenville, the last 12 miles of travel on well-maintained gravel roads. We have signs posted at each intersection and will send a map with specific directions when you make a reservation. By float-plane, the trip from Greenville to Spencer Pond takes only 15 minutes. Come discover the magic for yourself.
