About the Property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

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. Drive or go by boat to the town of Belgrade Lakes for dinner or ice cream. A classic summer vacation area, Long Pond and the Belgrade Lakes area are sure to please. Approximately 3 hours from Boston.

Location

10 Miles
Nearest Barpub
Sunsets Bar, Belgrade Lakes Maine
10 Miles
Nearest Restaurant
Viillage Inn restaurant, Old Post Office cafe

Car: Necessary

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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

Why the Owner Chose Mount Vernon, ME, USA:
This property had the best location we had seen on Long Pond, we couldn't resist the view, clear water and privacy.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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!
