Long Pond is a natural paradise

Nestled amidst verdant rolling hills and fragrant pine forests, Long Pond is a blissfully secluded glacial lake located on the west of Maine's Mount Desert Island. One of the largest islands in the United States, this expansive natural paradise is scattered with dense woodlands, rugged beaches and majestic granite mountains. While the island's jaw-dropping beauty draws vacationers from far and wide, Long Pond remains gloriously tranquil even at the height of summer. But should you find yourself craving a little hustle and bustle, affluent resort towns like Bar Harbor, with its chic boutiques and gourmet seafood restaurants, are within easy reach. Long Pond vacation rentals range from rustic cabins to sprawling family homes, so you're bound to find one to suit.

Things to do

Aquatic encounters and a trip back in time

You'll find plenty of attractions within easy reach of your Long Pond vacation rental. In downtown Bar Harbor you'll find the Abbe Museum, an inspiring institution devoted to preserving and celebrating the cultures of the Wabanaki, Maine's native people. Its central exhibition explores over 12,000 years of local history through ancient artifacts, vivid photos and immersive multi-media displays. For a spot of educational family fun, head to the Mount Desert Oceanarium, where you can get up close and personal with lobsters, starfish and urchins, and learn all about efforts to save the local whale population.
