The perfect location, the perfect lakefront cabin
July 30, 2014
My family, 15-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter, and I just got home from staying at this Long Pond cabin. Honestly, it exceeded all our expectations. The lake is quiet, beautiful sunrise views in the early morning, still and glassy waters, with campfires right beside the lake at night. We saw loons and hummingbirds almost every day. My daughter fished almost every day and always caught something. The cabin was very clean, spacious, the screened in back porch very large with wonderful view of lake and yard. Neighbors friendly but quiet. Great location - one hour from Mount Katahdin, two hours from Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, and the nearest town of Lincoln (10-15 minutes from cabin) has everything - Walmart, local grocery with fresh lobster!!!, great second-hand and antique stores downtown - all of which we visited. All boats and flotation devices in great condition - we used them every day - a double kayak, a single kayak, paddle boat, and canoe, all with their own oars. That was a huge bonus next to other cabins in the area. The rooms in the cabin were so comfortable and each quite large, can easily sleep 6 in beds, and eight with downstairs pullout bed. T.V. in living room and T.V.s in two out of three bedrooms, reliable Wi-Fi (never a problem), DVD player in living room. Eat-in kitchen with all appliances, place settings already there; great room concept with kitchen completely open to living room - we loved that, because we could talk while cooking and relaxing. The owner is prompt, reliable, great with communication, honest, and has quaint special touches (photos, decorations) all throughout the house that make the cabin even more ideal and just fun to look at. The smell of sweet pine trees is everywhere, the cool morning breezes come in the windows all day and night long, even the yard is very nicely manicured with aged trees and pleasant landscaping. I have been home three days and already miss it, it really felt like a home away from home. I would recommend this to anyone considering taking a trip to Maine. I have stayed in cabins all over the United States, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Colorado, West Virginia, Virginia, South Carolina, and this is by far the nicest cabin I have ever visited. Well worth the price. If we ever come to Maine again, I will be staying at this Long Pond home. Thank you, Gina (owner), for helping to give my family such happy and long-lasting memories of this vacation.
