Around Camp:

The camp has a front and back yard as well as woods behind the camp. You can drive directly to it in all seasons on a paved road. The small neighborhood is very friendly and people often walk their dogs and run along the road.

Quimby Pond is a no-motor’s fly-fishing only pond. It is beautiful to boat around, with easy access to push your boat in for excellent fly-fishing or to enjoy a day on the water paddling around.

Direct access to snowmobile trails, so in the winter you can roll out of bed and hop on your snowmobile parked next to the camp and immediately get on the snowmobile trails.

Easy Access to Saddleback Mt. Grab your skis and head to Saddleback Mountain, a short twenty-minute drive up to the lifts for fresh tracks.

You can also put on your snowshoes and go explore the hills around the camp on the near-by trails.

There is great bird cover behind the camp. In the fall enjoy the foliage, or come up for a hunting trip.

In the spring, summer, and fall, bring your hiking shoes and water bottle and explore the many hiking trails around the camp and in the Rangeley lakes region. Some trails start near the camp.

Bring your bike or rent one, and do some road biking or explore the mountain biking trails.

There are also near-by ATV trails to use.

About Leah T

I am a registered Maine Guide, and have been coming to the Rangeley region, primarily to ski and fish. I fell in love with the area after ‘discovering’ Saddleback Mountain’s amazing glades and narrow trails. I also love fly-fishing, and knew of Rangeley’s trophy sized landlocked salmon and famous brook trout fisheries, but had yet to fish them for myself.

I started looking for a camp a few years ago and was waiting for the perfect one in the right location to come on the market. When this camp became available it was only on the market for 4 days before it was under contract with me! I knew it was the perfect spot instantly. I live and work on the coast and come to Rangeley to play.

Rangeley is the perfect region for someone who enjoys the outdoors, and I was very excited to find this camp and be able to call it my own and share it with others. I love and appreciate this mountainous region whether I am sitting on the camp porch enjoying the wildlife as I write, or I am shredding fresh powder through the glades. I was also thrilled to find my new neighbors were very friendly folks, who welcomed me to the pond, and who always wave as they walk or drive past the camp.

I have guided for the Chewonki Foundation, Friends of Baxter State Park, Prescott College, and Northern Outdoors. Out of all my adventuring and guiding, my favorite trips to lead are canoe trips on the Allagash Wilderness Waterway. In many ways it is a lot like the Rangeley region— remote quiet and beautiful.

What makes this house unique

I named Red Quill Camp after the red quill fly. I love to fly fish, and when I first bought this camp there was a big ‘red quill’ bug hatch. I put a red quill fly on my line and had a fabulous day catching fish! When I came back to the camp that night I leaned my rod against the porch, took off my waders, and sat on the porch enjoying the sound of loons on the pond. In the fading light, with the loons calling around me, and the silhouette of my rod and waders in the porch window, I knew this was a special spot. In that moment my little red camp was named.

Great memories...

  • 5 of 5

This camp was exactly as described. The kitchen is fully equipped which was a real plus. Leah did a great job of describing where everything is located, in and outside of camp. We did not spend a whole lot of time in camp during our week visit, but after spending the day in the woods, we certainly appreciated the comforts of this camp. If you are looking for a camp in the Rangeley area this is a solid pick.

Perfect, quiet spot not far from town

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Red Quill with my adult siblings on a recent trip back home to Maine. The camp was perfect for our needs and was well-equipped for cooking large group meals. We found the wood stove easy to use and plenty of heat for early October. Quimby Pond Road was great for a walk or short run. For those who have never visited the Rangeley area, this is the best Maine has to offer in the fall! Thank you, Leah!

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect time in time in your cabin Leah!

The cabin is really well equiped: Plenty of place in house and garden, wonderful porch, games for the children, we never went out but cooked all days or had BBQ - the kitchen has everything!

We loved the canoe for fishing on Quimby Pond.

We went several times for hiking and found smaller trails for hike with children.

The region is really nice.

We hope to come an other time.

Wonderful cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 6 nights at Red Quill Camp. It was cozy, clean, homey and perfect for our visit to Rangeley for fly fishing and hiking. Everything you could need was there, organized and well labeled. We loved the screened-in porch, fire pit and especially the canoe for exploring Quimby pond and its resident loon family. :-) We'd highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area and hope to return there ourselves.

The Rangeley Region was made famous by legendary Cornelia ‘Fly Rod’ Crosby (1854-1946.) ‘Fly Rod’ was told by her doctor that she would die if she didn’t have an ‘abundant dose of fresh air’ and so she took to the outdoors and became an avid fly-fisher and hunter. She promoted the region as a sporting haven throughout her life, and became the first Maine Guide.

Another famous figure was Carrie Stevens, (1882-1970) who developed and tied the world-famous gray ghost fly. She loved to fish at Upper Dam on Richardson Lake where she summered and taught herself to tie flies.

Come to Red Quill Camp and enjoy the Maine Woods and a quant Maine Village!
