About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 7

Our beautiful cottage is located in Wildewood Estates of Belgrade Lakes Colony Association. Wildewood Estates is a community of Cottages on Long Pond with a private sandy beach and docking area. Although we are not a waterfront property, the nice thing about our location is that we are only 5 minutes walking distance from the Private Colony beach and only 8 minutes to the docking area. The beach has a play area (including swing set) for small children. Barbecue grills and picnic tables are set up for your convenience. There also is an Porta-Potty and parking at the beach as well as at the boat docking area for those who wish to drive. Outdoor activities such as swimming, hiking, cycling and walking are a safe environment for families with small children as well as adults.

This custom designed cottage is 8 years old and offers all the privacy and amenities you are looking for in a vacation rental. Ideal for couples as well as families with children. Our cottage sleeps 7. The main level offers a living/Great room equipped with sofa, chair, a TV for VCR and DVD player, Internet & Wifi and local TV channels, and a gas fireplace. Our open concept kitchen is fully equipped with an electric stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, pots and pans and all utensils including dishes and has an Island that can seat 4. The dining room has an additional table and chairs for extra dining space, playing games, doing puzzles, reading and writing. The downstairs master bedroom has a queen bed and the 2nd bedroom has a full bed. 1 full Bath with shower and tub.

The Loft on the second level has a 1/2 Bath with toilet and sink. A leather, very comfortable, chair, 1 Queen Bed and 1 twin bed. Outside is a 10 x 20 front deck and a small back deck. The property has parking for 4 cars and has a private back yard surrounded by trees.

The side and back yard has plenty of space for outside games.

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.

Our cottage is seasonal and open for rent May through October.

We hope you will find our cottage a perfect rental solution to suit your needs. Please click on the 'availability calendar' for open dates. Thank you!

Great relaxing summer vacation home !

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fabulous choice!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful and spotless cabin near the lake was the perfect getaway. We loved the front porch where we ate all our meals and the small beach down the road with its clear water and lovely setting. The house was well-equipped and perfectly maintained and the hosts were very responsive to questions before and during our stay. We would highly recommend this property.

Relaxing stay

We stayed at this cabin for four days. It was beautiful, clean and well maintained. contained everything we needed.The beds were comfortable, rooms decorated very nice. Close to the beach, it just took us a few minutes walking there. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Lovely cottage in beautiful, quiet setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family used this lovely property as home base for graduation weekend at our daughter's nearby college. Located across the street from the lake it is in a quiet, beautiful community. The cottage is very well maintained and nicely appointed. Although our group of 6-7 did not spend a lot of time at the cottage, when we were all gathered we had plenty of comfortable space in the open family room and deck to enjoy ourselves. Everyone loved the comfortable beds and slept well. The information provided by the owners (directions, suggestions for markets, etc.) were helpful and contributed to the ease of the overall experience. While the cottage is not located directly on the lake we would love staying here on a future vacation in the Belgrade Lakes area.

Perfect spot for a home-base for nearby activities

  • 5 of 5

We were in the Augusta region to pick up our kids from camp...had our 2 smaller children and au pair with us. This home was perfect for our family! Pretty lawn for the kids to run around, comfortable beds and plenty of room for the whole family. If you have little kids, bring a safety gate for the stairs. Kitchen is well-stocked, made a lot of family dinners. The house was perfect for what we needed. My only wish was that there was lake access to the house--you can see the lake across the street, but (so far as we can tell) it's a 10-minute drive to dip in your toes (I think I see the Private Colony beach on Google Maps...but it's an 11 min walk per Google, and likely longer w/ hills with little kids). If you're coming for the lake, be sure to have plans.
