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.

Cozy, clean and quiet! Perfect accommodation for a Maine getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Red Quill cabin was exactly as described and more. It was very clean and well organized. Leah left instructions for just about everything we needed and even had a binder full of local restaurant menus and information on attractions and wildlife. We enjoyed the fire pit in the yard and canoe on the beautiful pond. Leah is obviously a very thoughtful host and I would highly recommend staying at this property if you enjoy a quiet, peaceful environment in the gorgeous town of Rangeley.

Surround yourself by nature

  • 5 of 5

Perfect camp for family getaway. Enjoyed Quimby Pond for canoeing and loved the calling loons. Hiked 2 of Maine's 4K's via Saddleback Mtn ski trails. Kayaked on Kennebego River. Visited Height of Land on the way to Angel Falls. The Falls are not the easiest to get to, but well worth the effort. Lots of AT thru hikers in town and on the trail. Very fun vibe in Rangeley. Red Quill camp perfect and met all of our needs.

Quick Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great quick stay at Red Quill Camp. We came to Rangeley to celebrate another family member's birthday on Saturday. We checked into the camp on Friday and went to MooseAlley, lots of fun! The house was a great place for us as we were out most of the day on Saturday. Very clean house and quiet area!

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!
