A classic Maine vacation destination! Ernest Thompson stayed on Long Pond while writing his 1979 play "On Golden Pond". We are located on the south shore of this famous lake, and you can take in one of the nicest views on the lake from our large enclosed screen porch. This cottage features a master bedroom with attached half-bath, a lakeside bedroom with a king bed that can be converted to two twin beds, and a pull out queen sleeper couch for an extra guest or child. Every aspect of this cottage has been designed and built to create a unique look and feel that is not easy to find. Our property is set in a quiet location away from any busy roads, yet close to the quaint vacation towns of Belgrade Lakes and Mt. Vernon, where great dining and shopping are available. Belgrade lakes are famous for their quality fishing and pristine waters, perfect for kayaking or boating. We offer great swimming, your own dock and swim platform, and of course Wi-Fi.

About Scott and Loraine Bernard
Our favorite lake in the Belgrade Lakes chain is Long Pond. When we had the opportunity to purchase this property in 2012 we could not resist! After a full year of extensive re-design and renovation we are pleased to offer this wonderful cottage for rent.
Scott and Loraine Bernard purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Scott and Loraine Bernard chose Mount Vernon
This lake is our absolute favorite in the Belgrade Lakes chain for it's pristine look and feel. Bald Eagles, the largest local population of Loons you will find anywhere, and beautiful stretches of undeveloped shoreline are the hallmark of this beautiful pond.
What makes this Cabin unique
Quiet and seclusion, we are at the end of a very long and beautiful country road, perfect for jogging and walking your dog. Our end of the lake also boasts great stretches of undeveloped shoreline that is a pleasure to boat or kayak. When you get to our property you are at the end of the road, there is no busy road running behind us. The lake in front of our cottage is perfect for swimming. There are no weeds, some gravel, and a gently sloping depth. You have your own large floating dock and your own swim platform as well. Plenty of parking for boat trailers with room to turn around is a plus.

Fabulous Stay at this amazing cabin
We spent the second full week of June 2018 at Scott and Loraine's cabin on Long Pond. I cannot think of enough superlatives to describe our experience with both the owners and the property itself. The cabin was the perfect size for us, decorated quaintly and was very comfortable. The location directly on the water is literally breathtaking each and every time you look out the upstairs bedroom window or step onto the screened in porch. The water was steps away. We rented a couple of kayaks for the week and enjoyed paddling around the lake. We hiked some local trails and got some beautiful photos of the lake from an eagle's eye view. We also braved the early June chilly water and took a couple of dips and hung out on the swimming dock and enjoyed the warm sun. The cabin is physically located in a great spot for people like us who like to have a single central location and take lots of day trips during the week. Have been to Belgrade Lakes area many times since childhood and have never enjoyed a cabin as much as this one. We will be returning!
Wonderful few days!
The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We had perfect weather and the leaves were amazing. Great time to visit Maine. Sitting on the dock was my favorite!!! I would recommend this property to our friends. Good communication with owners. Thank you!
Another wonderful stay at this amazing cottage. Views are perfect, it's away from all the hustle and bustle, secluded, clean and quaint. I come from Mass every year to this lake to enjoy the serenity and fishing, There's no doubt I will always book at Loon Song and with Scott for good reason.
Beautiful cottage in a lovely spot
This cottage is lovely, what a well done remodel! The screened porch is fabulous -for morning coffee, for doing a jigsaw puzzle, for having an evening night cap- beautiful view and great soundtrack of loons singing! You really did it right when you made the screened porch- lots of space, comfy furniture and cozy blankets for when it is chilly. The cottage is set near the end of a dirt road, nice quiet roads for taking walks. The water was slightly busy with boat traffic on the weekend but it quieted right down come Monday. It was great watching the loons, herons and geese on the water. Also great to have a campfire and watch the stars at night. Thank you for sharing you cottage!
Great Cabin In A Quiet Location
Stayed there for six days. Pictures do not do it justice. Beautiful spot located right on Long Pond, which has some great fishing. We rented a boat from the Castle Island Camps for a couple of days and were able to secure the boat to the dock overnight, although we were able to catch plenty of bass right from the dock.
It is a great home base if you want to travel around the state. Just an hour and a half drive to the coast (Camden) and up to The Forks for some white water rafting.
Cabin was very clean and had everything you could need to cook your meals. The beds were very comfortable. Except for the loons singing (which I found peaceful) it is very quiet.
Restaurants in the immediate area are limited, but Augusta is a short drive away. Looking forward to staying there again.
OFF THE BEATEN PATH
Just spent the last 3 nights at this nice little cabin. If you like to get away from it all this is the place, it's so peaceful here. The cabin was clean and cozy. The owner sent out a nice detailed document about the who, what, when and where's of the cabin and the local area which was very helpful. The pond and the views were just beautiful. We rented a canoe to paddled around the pond and explore. It was cool this time of year and the heat worked flawlessly. Everything was as stated on VRBO and have no complaints. We loved it here, and would love to come again during the summer, but it looks booked.
