your cabin in the woods...
Expect quiet, expect friendship, expect clean cabins,
expect scrumptious meals,
expect vacation relaxation, expect an occasional moose ...
To our loyal guests and loyal guests-to-be, we have firmly decided to remain closed for the 2020 season. All of the usual reasons apply, as well as some personal reasons which make sense. We do plan on being under full steam for 2021, as long as it is safe, wise, and the same level of service and fun can be provided. So please keep in touch, as will we.... Stay safe, wear a mask, wash your hands, and talk to you soon!
Friends & Family of Bradford Camps
We knew the day would come for us to make a decision about the future of our 2020 season. Sadly, after spending countless hours, days and weeks, we feel the most responsible and careful conclusion is to remain closed. Like us, we know you have all been counting the days till you can relax on your porch of your favorite cabin, sharing camaraderie with your friends and family. We have weighed every option, contemplated every solution, gathered as much pandemic related advice to figure out a solution. Unfortunately, we are not able to come up with a plan that will keep everyone safe and happy at the same time.
The state of Maine has provided a phased plan for opening businesses such as sporting camps, yet it is not a “one size fits all” solution. What we all love about the Bradford Camps is its unique qualities of togetherness, support, and social interaction, as well as its small neighborhoodly size. These same qualities make it impossible to run Bradford Camps safely and legally.
If you have a deposit with us, you are welcome to recall it. Many people will need all their resources and more to recover from this. We very much hope however that you can keep your deposit with us for a 2021 visit. For those who do so, you will receive a 5% discount off your nightly rate in 2021. Your friendship, loyalty and understanding mean so much to us. With your support and loyalty, we will get through this.
As the details of this pandemic unfold and change, if tracking and testing gets going, and a real treatment emerges, we will consider opening up later this season. Perhaps the virus will just “disappear” one day...
This pandemic is causing so much stress and strife in the world. No matter how long this takes to recover, Munsungan Lake and the North Maine Woods will be as beautiful as always.
We will keep in touch. And we will always want to hear from you!!
Igor and Karen
The Bradford Camps is a Maine sporting camp located in the middle of the North Maine Woods - all FOUR million acres of it. We are FIFTY miles of gravel roads away from the nearest TOWN, PAVED ROAD, TELEPHONE POLE, CELL SIGNAL, GAS STATION, and FRUITCAKE VENDOR . This is part of what we are all about. (we make our own fruitcake...)
The Camps were established in 1890, and have been in continuous operation with only 5 owners for the past 130 years. It is a traditional hunting and fishing lodge providing private cabins with full bathrooms and all meals. It is a fishing and hunting paradise, and we also invite those who just want to get away, relax, and check in with themselves, their family, and the natural world.
Karen and Igor Sikorsky have owned and operated the camps for 25 years, and enjoyed every bit of it. Our goal is to give people some truly rewarding, relaxing, and comfortable vacation time, free from worries. We know how valuable your vacation time is, and we take our jobs seriously to give you a trip you will cherish.
