Travel Tips

Wilsons is the ideal place to spend a family vacation together, with innumerable activities to interest every member of the family, young or old. Give us a call at 207-695-2549 to make your reservation. Our office is staffed from 8am-8pm, 7 days a week and we are here to help you with your vacation arrangements!

Our lakefront cabins are fully equipped so that you feel like you are coming ‘home’ rather than returning to a small motel room. All of our cottages have a screened porch, fully equipped kitchens, private bathrooms, all linens & towels provided along with charcoal grills. We want you to relax and enjoy yourself while you are on vacation.

Packing List/FAQ’s

We have provided this list to try and help you out. Some of the items below will possibly be in the cottage because previous guests have left things behind, but we do not stock the following:

  • Toiletries (shampoo, hand soap)
  • Kitchen supplies (spices, flour, sugar, dish soap, paper towels, etc.)
  • We supply needed items to get you started such as: toilet paper, small soaps, and trash bags.

Don’t forget your bathing suit any time of year, and a robe in the winter time! You gotta try out the hot tub!

In the summer, fans can come in handy, as well as beach chairs & towels, and water shoes. We have charcoal grills here for our guests, but you want to bring charcoal and lighter fluid. Guests are welcome to bring their own propane grill if preferred.

Are you Pet Friendly?: While we do our best to accommodate your well behaved 4-legged family members, we must know IN ADVANCE if you are traveling with your pet. Some cabins DO NOT allow dogs. We do have a pet contract that is required and can be found on our policies page. We also have pets of our own, and this is where they live so this must be taken into consideration along with our insurance company not allowing certain breeds.

We have a full service fly shop as well as, on-site gas & oil for boats, snowmobiles, and ATVs. Our store here at Wilsons stocks coffee, soda, water, candy bars, chips/crackers, tees, fleeces, hats, and sweatshirts. We sell camp wood for the outside fire pits. There is a full-service grocery store in Greenville along with multiple small convenience stores in Greenville and Rockwood, so you don’t need to do your shopping before you arrive in the area.
