The marina, located at 25 Marina Drive in Belgrade Lakes, was recently renovated and is styled after a traditional Maine boat house featuring exposed beams and an unparalleled view. With this new building came a quintessential experience–the Great Pond Boat House is a membership and guest-only lakeside restaurant and club. It lives up to its motto: Where the Lake Gathers.

The Gardiner family purchased the marina in 1991 and recently parents Bob and Debbie passed it on to their sons, Adam and Jason. Under their guidance, the marina continues to maintain a strong work ethic and offers a high level of service to each customer.

Some grow as large as 30 pounds and it’s these giants the sports fishermen are after. Love them or hate them, their appeal to many fishermen is undeniable.

Camps, cabins and cottages dot the waterfront, as well as some more ostentatious dwellings. Some have been in families for generations, while others are newly constructed by recent inductees to the beauty and attractions of Great Pond and the Belgrade Lakes Region in general.
