Desert Island has to offer. The charming village of Southwest Harbor as well as Echo Lake, Beech Mountain, and many other Acadia National Park treasures are all just a short drive away!

Simple camp with great lake access


My wife and I spent a very enjoyable week at Three Moons. The dock and lakefront deck are what make it such a great camp. The dock is spacious and sturdy and we had two boats tied up to it -- a sailboat and a canoe. The camp is at a nice windy spot on Long Pond. On a cool evening a fire in the brick fireplace is very cozy. There's even easy hand-launching of boats from a sort of boat ramp. Potential tenants should note that the neighbors are very close and the interior is very simple. The bath is tiny with a small sink. The electric kitchen stove is older, and there are only basic kitchen utensils. For example, we found no mixing bowls for batters or salads. But, all in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our week in Three Moons!

From The Knowles Company: Thank you for the recommendations on improving the kitchen inventory! We have asked the homeowners to add a few more items to their kitchen tools for 2023. Your suggestions are very helpful!
