Why Scott and Loraine chose Mount Vernon
This property had the best location we had seen on Long Pond, we couldn't resist the view, clear water and privacy.
What makes this Cabin unique
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!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Loved every minute of our stay here. Crystal clear lake, beautiful view, cozy and comfortable cottage. Spent the majority of our inside time on the screened porch - great for reading, eating meals or just sitting and listening to the loons and the sound of the water lapping against the shoreline.
Great lake for kayaking. We rented kayaks from Belgrade Boat Storage & Marine. They did a great job, dropped off and picked up several days later.
Hoping to return next year. Thank you Scott and Lorraine. You have a true gem with this location, thank you for sharing it.
We had a wonderful, relaxing week on Long Pond. The cabin is as advertised, quintessential but tastefully updated. We live in Maine and have rented other cabins and this is our favorite as is Long Pond.
Maine Lake Cottage
Unbelievable lake view from a nice comfortable back porch.
Fun and quiet family getaway
This quaint cottage is even better in person! From the moment you turn onto the mile plus meticulously maintained gravel road to arriving to find a beautiful little house just on the water’s edge, every bit of this location was just perfect. Our first steps inside exceeded our expectations. It is so well decorated but super comfortable with many little thoughtful touches that we very much appreciated. Thank you for sharing this amazing place with us and we hope to be able to come back year after year to enjoy it!
Away from it all
A great place to get away from it all and spend some quality quiet time by a lovely lake. The cottage was exactly as described in the listing. The dock made it easy to launch canoe and kayak, as well as to swim. Loons visited each evening at dinner. Lovely.
Too Short a Stay at Long Pond
Our week at Long Pond could not have been better. The camp was very well appointed and provided everything we needed and wanted. We grilled, cooked, swam, fished, hiked and just generally relaxed. We were familiar with the area and took advantage of all that Belgrade Village and Mount Vernon have to offer. The duck at the Village Inn was superb as always.
My conversation with Scott was informative and provided some good fishing tips. Everything down to the weather was excellent. It was with reluctance that we left for home.
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.
