A classic Maine vacation destination! Ernest Thompson stayed on Long Pond while writing his 1979 play "On Golden Pond". Our property has one of the nicest views on the south end of this famous lake, and you can enjoy it all from inside our 12'x24' screen deck. This custom designed cottage offers all the privacy and amenities you are looking for in a vacation rental. Ideal for a couple, couples or small family looking for a relaxing retreat to kayak, fish or boat. We offer a brand new kitchen, bathroom, and three bedrooms with two queen beds and two built in twin beds. Everything is new and high quality, including the linens, dishware and cooking utensils. We also have a washer and dryer, WiFi, swim platform, large floating dock, mooring, and many miles of quiet tranquil roads to walk your pet or jog. Long Pond offers nearly 3,000 acres of beautiful Maine waters with islands, pines, loons and bald eagles. More than enough for a great week of kayaking, boating or whatever your summer interests are. Long Pond is a deep, clear lake and great for swimming. Of all the Beldgrade Lakes, Long Pond is the least developed and most pristine.

Why Scott and Loraine chose Mount Vernon
This property had the best location we had seen on Long Pond, we couldn't resist the view, clear water and privacy.
What makes this Cabin unique
The best thing about this cottage is that you are in 'real' cottage country when you are here. There are no long strips of overdevelopment on your drive to our place, and there no noisy highways, or large resort operations on this lake chain. We are at the end of a beautiful, quiet, country road, with great privacy. Best of all, the heavily forested shoreline of the lake means that when you are on the water, you see trees and loons, not cottages!

As one who has been duped with places that were photoshopped, this cottage is everything the prior reviews expressed.
A charming cottage, well cared for and everything you would want as a vacation home, but can’t afford. We enjoyed cooking all our meals, in this well stocked kitchen, including homemade bread, and a birthday cake.
The screened in porch was just perfect, as the mosquitoes were very pesky. The owners thought of everything, so you don’t have too.
We will be back!
Home Away from Home
Just as beautiful and charming as pictured. Well equipped kitchen. Screened porch is wonderful, you feel as if you are literally on the water. The house is just steps from the water on a quiet area of the lake. There were 8 pairs of loons on the lake when we were there in May. Lots of attention to detail from owners and very responsive and thorough when answering questions. Very clean and dog friendly- a huge plus for us! Cannot wait to go back. Make sure you visit Echo Ridge Cheese in Mt. Vernon- delicious and lovely that that makes and sells it!
Our second time staying here, have already booked a third. Very clean and comfortable. Ate all of our meals on the screened porch overlooking the lake. Our teenaged son fished from his kayak from dawn to dusk. He caught two Smallmouth Bass simultaneously on one lure. Pictures to prove it. Bragging rights forever.
A Piece of Heaven
Enjoyed every minute of our stay. The cottage is quaint and well stocked with most necessities. The view of the lake is breathtaking. This is our second time vacationing here with our 3 children and we plan on returning next year. Thank you Scott and Lorraine for accommodating us!
Great place on Long pond
The cabin is at a great location on Long pond. It has a good amount of room and features.
My sister and I recently had the opportunity to spend a week at this awesome camp (aka lakeside cottage) during fall leaf peeping season, and knew immediately that we had discovered camp rental paradise! When we were kids, our family spent many summers at our uncle’s camp in Maine. Over the past few years, we searched for a rental that would offer a similar experience. Unfortunately, we had been disappointed until now! We were happy to find the atmosphere we remembered from our childhood, along with a lot of extra touches that made previous rentals dim in comparison. The cottage itself is very attractive on both the outside and inside. It has been wonderfully renovated and decorated to retain a traditional and cozy Maine camp feel, with added modern touches that we truly appreciated. I easily relied on the excellent internet/Wi-Fi connection when I had to keep up with a few work commitments. Everything was clean and in working order. The beds are comfortable and well-appointed; the bath is modern and roomy; and the kitchen has nice appliances along with all the necessary items for cooking just about anything. Plus there is the cutest laundry shed! The lake itself is clean and beautiful, and just a few easy steps from the roomy screened porch. The locals are friendly as we discovered when we stopped at a roadside stand, and were invited to watch the process of pressing apples for cider. We went back to the barn area for a look, and even took a turn on the vintage apple press. The environment is pristine and the surrounding area is quaint and uncrowded. There is great hiking close by, and we enjoyed visiting nearby restaurants and shops. We are looking forward to returning in the summer season to enjoy the lake even more. The landlords are very pleasant and accommodating, making us feel more like welcomed guests than anonymous renters.
We are located halfway between the quaint lake country towns of Belgrade Lakes and Mt. Vernon, Maine. Enjoy a wonderful breakfast or lunch at The Old Post Office Cafe in Mt. Vernon, where you can sit with a view to the lake, or dine at The Village Inn in Belgrade lakes where the food is also excellent. Long Pond is a Kayakers paradise. It is approximately 6 miles from one end to the other with a rugged shoreline, many islands and two rivers to explore. Much of the shoreline is still undeveloped, and wildlife is abundant. Fishing is excellent with salmon, trout and bass making up the bulk of the gamefish. Hiking at nearby Kennebec Highlands is great way to spend a morning or afternooon, with panoramic views of Long Pond and Great Pond. Activities include swimming, kayaking, boating, canoeing, fishing, water skiing, wakeboarding, and hiking. Our cottage is not part of a resort or 'group' of cottages or camps. Our proximity to the lake is excellent, we are only steps to the water. We are at the end of a long, quiet country road, there is no through traffic.
