Guest Comments from the Wheeler Pond Logbook: 

. . . arrived early evening in time for some to canoe and kayak . . . beautiful sunset . . . pink, white & purple puffs sitting on Wheeler Mountain . .

. . . morning here is magical . . . the changing light plays on the mountains and pond, transforming the view moment to moment . . .

. . . the cabin, the pond, the mountains, the forest have barely changed over the years . . . we see the herons, the loons, beaver, moose . . .

. . . a light breeze passes by me every once in a while, carrying a delicious smell of morning dew, grass, and earth . . .

. . . our first time here . . . kayaked on the pond under the full moon & hiked the red trail up Wheeler Mountain . . . humbled by the vistas, the color . . .

. . . woke up to bright sunshine and snowshoed around the pond . . . we really love this place and will be back!
