Long Pond is in Maine's Kennebec and Moose River Valley's region and one of the seven lakes called the Belgrade Lakes Region. The Village of Belgrade Lakes is only about 15 miles northwest of Augusta, just 3 hours North of Boston in Central Maine. The Belgrade region is acclaimed for its natural beauty, wealth of recreational activities and abundance of local charm. Long Pond and the other six fresh water lakes are known for their fine fishing and water activities. Families enjoy swimming, tubing, sailing, fishing and boating, kayaking, canoeing and water skiing and boat rentals are available at nearby boat rentals.
The writer of the award winning 'On Golden Pond', Ernest Thompson, spent much of his early years at neighboring Great Pond, only minutes away from Long Pond.
This area also has the New England Music Camp, where free music concerts are held twice a week during the summer season. The Quaint and picturesque village of Belgrade Lakes is only 15 minutes by car from our cottage in Wildewood Estates and has fabulous restaurants as well as the wonderful Day's Store where you can purchase everything you need for your stay. (Food, liquor, tackle, souvenirs, and the New York Times). Augusta, (The State Capital) just 20 minutes away by car has a huge shopping complex and many restaurants as well. Free port, Maine (famous for its LL Bean Store) has outlet shopping and only 45 minutes away. Antique lovers will find an abundance of shops in this area as well.
There are several golf courses in the area. Belgrade Lakes 18-hole golf course has incredible panoramic views of the area's lakes and hills. Golf Digest called it 'Golf at its absolute best' when giving it a top 5 star rating. It is just 15 minutes by car from our Cottage. There are many hiking trails (detailed map can be purchased at Day's Store).
Seacoast places worth vising, such as Camden, Maine and Rockland, Maine have famous art museums and many restaurants on the Atlantic Ocean, all within an hours ride.
When vacationing in Maine, take day trips and sight see the area while you enjoy the comfort of a home. Choose to stay a 171 Wildewood Estate instead of a Hotel. You get the whole house instead of just one room.

Nice weekend spent with the girls
Nice house for a family getaway
We found the house perfect for our 5 day family getaway. The house was in great condition! It was located a short walk from the beach where the kids enjoyed swimming. We found a few local hiking trails perfect for younger kids. Day's country store had all the supplies we needed. We did not use a boat, but would think it a great lake to boat on. The area is quite at night. Even on the day it rained, we had fun. I am giving it 5 stars, but had two minor complaints. 1) There was only enough outdoor seating for 4 so we had to use some indoor chairs outside. 2) There are many knives, but I found only 2 small ones that were sharp enough to prepare food - the rest were effectively butter knives.
Thank you Scott for a 5 star review and also for the minor complaints. These are the kind of comments we appreciate, because then we can improve our service to our guests. Each guest arrives with different needs, and we try to respond to them all. We will address the chairs and knives.

Beautiful, clean and cozy cottage!
Wonderful July stay in quintessential Maine "camp" area! The cabin was new, clean, cozy and had everything we needed for our family vacation. The lake down the street was picturesque! The loft area was perfect for our teen boys and the cabin was well air-conditioned and comfy.
This is definitely a place to come to and relax and experience a cabin stay in Maine.
Maine is a beautiful vacation place and we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at our cottage. We welcome you back whenever you are visiting Maine again.
We had a wonderful visit to this beautiful and well-appointed cabin. The cabin is relatively new and beautifully designed. It was clean and organized, and included all of the necessary modern conveniences including AC and internet. The cabin is located conveniently to the Belgrade Highlands (including wonderful hiking) and the Belgrade Lakes (including canoeing on Great Pond). It is a little bit further however to the east coast of Lake Messalonskee than we anticipated given the lake geography. Many thanks to our hosts. We hope to visit again some day!
So happy to hear such a nice review and that you enjoyed your stay. It is our goal to make our customers satisfied. We hope to hear from you again in the near future.

Great relaxing summer vacation home !
The most impression and eye catching scene is beautiful, wooden planks throughout the house. A natural woody fragrance is most welcome and a relaxing agent. Well prepared kitchen, bath necessities, comfortable beds, everything is very clean and organized , easily reached. Convenient location, some 35 min to the capital August, and 1 hr to Portland. We were very happy to spend 3 nights here.
