The perfect summer family getaway

Last August was our third stay at Gilmore Camps and each have been idyllic. Tom is a great host--there if you need something, not if you don't. We have stayed in both Schoohouse and The Lodge--both are comfy and clean, but we like The Lodge better. The complex is wonderfully remote, with a great beach and gradual lake entry. Our grandkids have loved swimming, boating (provided canoes and kayaks), playing in the sand and exploring the lakeshore. One highlight of each year has been exploring the lake by canoe--it's a good trip crossing the lower lake where Gilmore Camps is located and up the narrow connector to the main lake, but it's worth the effort, including a lakeside fairy village built annually by one of the residents. Make sure you locate one of the nearby farms with stands (10 minute), where you can get fresh corn, and go out one evening to Ebenezer's Pub (15-20 minutes), particularly if there's a beer enthusiast in your party. And on the property, be sure to try out the outdoor showers Tom put in a couple of years ago, which are wonderful at night--staring up at a clear sky! Mostly, though, just expect the opportunity to relax and enjoy a family vacation you'll want to repeat over and over. Quiet days at the edge of the lake, peaceful evenings with a crackling fire. Every year, our grandkids hate to leave, and we eagerly look forward going back there this August!

We had such a wonderful time in The Birches cabin at Gilmore Camps. It was simple, secluded, cozy and convenient. After years of hectic vacations, we truly relaxed. Swimming, reading, grilling, kayaking, playing cards, with jaunts to Sherman's Farm for fresh veggies and North Conway for tourist traps. My biggest decision involved where will I read today--on the porch, outside the porch, on the beach or by the fire. We took several car adventures up to the Rangely Lakes and up to the top of Mt Washington on a clear day. Our teenager adjusted nicely to an electronic free-zone, and enjoyed horseshoes, pool, and activities on the beach. We are counting the days until we can return.

What a wonderfully, relaxing atmosphere. It was a peaceful spot on the lake. Little to no boat traffic and cottages were far enough away from each other to give you a sense of privacy. The owners were very cordial and welcoming. The pool house was a bonus as we brought three 17-20 year old young men with us which they enjoyed. Plenty to occupy young children as well.

The Lake Cottage is right on the small beach with views of the lake out one side and an expansive lawn out the other. House is private and comfortable, lake is clean, grounds are great. Camp has everything you need from washing machine to gas barbeque. The Gilmores are wonderful and were very helpful. Note no phone or internet service in the cottage (which can be nice!)

Loved this place and will be sure to return. Unbelievably clean, super amenities and friendly smiles!! A great safe haven for children and a vacation rental that took me back in time to the summer cottages I stayed at as a child. A great nostalgic atmosphere but enough amenities to keep my 3 kids busy, ages 10, 5 and 2. Great beach, safe for kids which allows parents to sit back and relax. We stayed at the charming Schoolhouse and couldn't ask for more. Completely equipped with everything to make your vaca easy, but decorated with a nostalgic feel. Owners are super sweet people and make you feel right at home. Great free washing machine available which is ideal when traveling with children. My favorite thing was the wonderful swing facing out to a beautiful view of the lake. We thank the Gilmore family for a true memorable experience and we have already heard from our children "when can we go back??" So we give this camp a 5-star rating!

This was our 4th year visiting Gilmore Camps and they just keep getting better. The weather we had this week was by far the worst we've had yet but it didn't really matter. With the Lake at our front door we were able to jump in and cool off between the rain showers. The four kids, ages 9 mos to 5 years, had a blast and we'll definetly be back next year - Rain or shine!

Friends told us about Kezar Lake and I found your camp on the web. It looked okay -- but was I wrong...it was fantastic! Mr. Gilmore is an attentive -- but not too attentive -- welcoming host. Now we're hooked!
