About Great Pond Marina
The Great Pond Marina Family
Bob & Debbie Gardner purchased the marina in 1991 from Dave Webster; the original “Mail Boat Captain” in Ernest Thompson’s play and later movie, "On Golden Pond". Now with renewed energy, the helm is being passed on to their two sons, Adam and Jason, daughter Jessica, along with daughter-in-law Stephanie. Besides running the Marina, the Gardner’s have been involved in numerous community organizations within Belgrade Lakes. The Gardner’s are Board Members of the Belgrade Lakes Region Business Group, the Maine Marine Trade Organization, Maine Committee for Invasive Species, and DEP Committee for Marina Best Management Practices. Their son Adam was also recently on the Board of Directors of the Belgrade Lakes Association.
