Pets allowed:
Wi-Fi available:

Description from owner

Four season beautiful camp located in Solon, Maine with 3 bedrooms and one bath with frontage on the Kennebec River and the ITS trail (Solon/Bingham Recreational Rail Trail). This home has a fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, electric stove, full size refrigerator, dishes and microwave.

In the spring season, fishing starts April 1, Salmon, rainbow and brook trout are just waiting to be caught. Bring your own bike for a nice quiet ride on one of the trails or down a country road. Ride well maintained ATV trails.

In the winter season enjoy snowmobiling on the ITS trail with easy access to Jackman, Greenville or Kingfield where you can stop at one of the local restaurants for a hot cup of soup or expanded menu. There are several well known lakes in the area for ice fishing. Cross country skiing is also another option for your winter vacation. Coming back home you can enjoy the warmth of the woodstove, curl up with a book, watch the snowflakes fall and know that you are in Maine where life is what it should be.

In the summer season you can bring your own ATV and ride on the well maintained trail system for a fun filled trip to Jackman or enjoy the river with fishing, kayaking and swimming. In the evening you can sit by the campfire cook hot dogs and roast marshmallows and enjoy the simple, stress free life of Maine.

In the fall enjoy the changing of the leaves from greens to golds and reds with the reflection in the water is great for memorable pictures that will be in your mind for a lifetime. Trout and salmon fishing is still legal until the end of October. An out-of-state license is easily purchased within a mile from your house. Hunting season starts with birds, moose, deer and bear. We are located 10 miles from Zone 14 for moose hunting.

We are a non smoking, no pet property. We are currently taking reservations.

My husband and I are retired. We built the camp for recreational fun, but loved the area so much we built a house next door and now live here fulltime. Enjoy the summer fishing and kayaking and the great snowmobile trails in the area.

There was 4 of us we all enjoyed,sitting at the camp fire,cooking on the grill..I would rent this camp again. Well worth the money,Marsha and Charles,were great..

“Imaculate Cabin! Peaceful retreat!”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2016

We stayed here last week. This was one of the most relaxing weeks I've had in quite some time. Marsha and Charlie were awesome. Nice gas grill, great fire pit. I enjoyed sitting in the sunroom in the mornings and my husband enjoyed sitting out on the porch. Great get away. Close to fishing and white water rafting! ATV trail along the Kennebec! If you're looking to just get away for a while, this is the place!

“Long fall weekend in Solon.”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2015

My wife and I spent a long weekend at this property. The view of the Kennebec River with the Autumn leaves was stunning. The house was beautiful , well provisioned and immaculate. I would stay there again and would highly recommend it to friends and family.

“Better Than Expected”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2015

The photos were quite limited when I booked Riverview Camp, so I was not expecting the glimpses of the wide river from the rear-facing windows. The condition of the camp was also better than I expected from the description and photos. It put to shame the nearby family camp, where I was visitng cousins. They have a lot of work to turn their old family place into something as clean, uncluttered and spacious as Riverview. We used all 5 beds for adults in the night of our stay before our family event in Augusta. As you might expect, one bathroom is not enough. A half bath or just a laundry sink downstairs would be a big improvement. For 2-4 adults, the upstairs bedrooms are very comfortable and the single bath adequate (although the shower mixing valve needs some work). I was relieved to find WIFI service when I arrived alone for the first night. There is no land line and my AT&T phone had no coverage except for a few spots on the highway.

Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We will check out the shower valve.

“Family Vacation”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2015

Spent a great weekend at this property. Charles and Marsha were great hosts, even taking us upstream with canoe and kayaks to run the river from Bingham to the house. The house is very nice, very comfortable and the perfect layout of Mom and Dad and our 3 adult children. Hope we are able to return some day.

Owner's reply: So enjoy meeting people. Renters satisfaction and enjoyment is important to us.

“Refreshing, Relaxing Get Away”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2014

This rental property is ideal for the nature lover in us all. It has all the comforts of home plus easy access to outdoor adventure! The house is beautifully built and decorated in the river/ woods theme.. A small deck, gas grill, side yard for games, and a large open area with lots of seating around a large well made fire pit. Fire wood is provided. All this plus, The Beautiful Kennebec River and the well maintained R .T .T. trail. A short walk leads you to the boat launch/ swimming area. It's so enjoyable to swim, kayak and canoe on the river . It's so clean and refreshing! . We also enjoyed driving around and learning about the history of the area. Charley and Marsha are so friendly and helpful with information about the area also. I Definitely recommend this rental !

“Nice place right on the ITS”

Reviewed 28 Feb 2014

We spent Friday February 14th through Tuesday February 18th at this beautiful cabin. It is comfortable, immaculate and perfectly located. Our hosts made every effort to make us welcome and every amenity is provided. The cabin is completely child friendly with games, books and plenty of room. We snowmobiled, skied, snowshoed and went sledding. This winter getaway was just perfect with the winter wonderland of Maine at our doorstep. We very much hope to return next year.

“Best Vacation EVER!!!”

Reviewed 27 Feb 2013

This is an amazing home to rent! Very clean with all the modern amenities!! Nice location. We went for school vacation and snowmobiled, ice fished, and even travelled to saddleback mountain for skiing. The location is wonderful! The owners are amazing and very knowledgeable! Can not wait to go again!! This is a must rent!!!

“Very Quiet and CLEAN ..”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2012

We rented this for Moose Hunting and is a great place and section of Maine. Deer in the driveway and so many things to see in the area. The trails are right down the little hill in the backyard which makes it perfect for snowmobiling or fourwheeling or just a great hike along the river. Could not have asked for a better place as a matter of fact we booked it for flyfishing next season already..Great Place !!
