Abstract

Eric Stirling owns West Branch Pond Camps, a classic Maine camp 45 minutes from Greenville in a remote valley between White Cap and Hedgehog mountains. The camps have been in his family since 1910, and Stirling has kept with the old ways, eschewing phones, kitchenettes, and TVs in the cabins. A graduate of Bowdoin College, he runs the camp with his wife, Mildred, and mother, Carol, and tries to keep the cabins as authentic as possible. The Stirlings bought their 30 acres from Seattle-based Plum Creek timber company three years ago, when Eric took over. Loyal guests return to the lodge year after year.
