About the area

Lincoln, ME has a very rich history of its own. The property is only 8 miles from town. Lincoln has everything you will need as far as food, fuel, sundries, craft shopping, etc. Rafting/canoing/kayaking: The lake itself is actually three connected lakes. You couldn't possibly paddle the whole area. Less than 3 miles away is the Penobscot River. The Penobscot is absolutely breathtaking by boat/canoe/kayak. If you are looking for faster water, a short drive north puts you right in the middle of the action. Fishermen: The lake itself is loaded with largemouth and smallmouth bass. This has been a catch and release only lake for over 15 years. The Penobscot River (3 miles away), and particularly this stretch of Penobscot River was featured in BassMaster Magazine as quite possibly the best smallmouth fishing in the country. Sightseeing: Go any direction (N,E,S,or W). Everything is a convenient day trip from this location

“The perfect location, the perfect lakefront cabin”

Reviewed 30 Jul 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.

Owner's reply: We are so happy you and your family had such a wonderful vacation and look forward to having as our guests anytime! Gina & Mark

“A pleasure”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2014

This is our 4th year staying here. We love it here, couldn't be more perfect. A catch and release pond with huge bass, every husband's dream. The cabin is clean and homey and the owners are wonderful.

Owner's reply: One of our very favorite guests. We are glad you had the time to take two weeks this year. Thanks Madalene!

“Amazing family getaway”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2012

This vacation rental is the best we've ever stayed at. It is everything it is advertised as and more. The fishing is great and we stopped counting after 50 for the week. The house itself was very well stocked and clean and neat. The yard was our magnificent with a large hammock, bonfire pit and beautiful views of the lake. The owners are super conscientious! We highly recommend this vacation rental!

“Long Pond home”

Reviewed 17 Nov 2011

The home was beautiful, very well kept and quite comfortable. We had inclement weather the first few days, but enjoyed the peaceful, quiet setting. It is a good hour drive to the state parks and hiking areas, so if you are planning on a lot of that type of activity make sure you allow driving time. Everything we needed as far as any supplies were easily found in Lincoln which is only about a 10 minute drive. We had a wonderful stay. If you are looking for peace and quiet this is an excellent choice. The owners were very accomodating and had someone there within 10 minutes to let us in when we locked ourselve out!! Mark and Gina have a VERY nice place!

“Excellent Vacation Spot with everything!”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2011

We had an excellent stay! Spending our days on the pond fishing (the boat landing is really close, then you can tie off your boat to the dock). Our one rainy day was spent enjoying satellite tv, highspeed internet, playing card games. This camp really does have everything. Kayaks, canoe, paddle boat, etc... It is close to places for food shopping and supplies, but just far enough out where there is not a lot of people. We caught bass on long pond, then made our way to the attached ponds for some pickerel. Nights were spent making s'mores on the fire and looking up at the stars. The only problem with a place like this...the week goes by to fast! I'm definitely keeping this place in mind for future vacations, in hopes of spending more than one week.

“Beautiful Home and Location”

The owners of this property have put a lot of effort into making this a very comfortable, relaxing place for a family vacation, whatever the weather. HIghly recommended.

“Great Place”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2010

We loved the house, the lake was beuatiful. The owners were great to communicate with the couple problems that we encountered. It was very easy to find and get to. We loved one of the pieces of furniture(the hutch) in the house and we emailed the owners to ask them were they got it. She told me she actually bought it from the previous owners of the house because they loved it so much, she told me she would let me know where it came from the next time they visit the house. We loved the loft. The view from the screened in porch was great, we watched the birds on the feeder all day. The fishing was great, caught a few fish(a little too small to keep, but it was fun.) We enjoyed the paddle boat also. Sunrise was very pretty over the lake.

“34 Cedar Lane August 2010 vacation”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2010

We have stayed in the Lincoln area on Caribou/Long Pond every summer over the last 5 years. 34 Cedar Lane cabin was the nicest week of all. The cabin is beautiful and the addition of wireless internet and DirecTV made it perfect. Fishing was great for pickerel and bass. Camefires at night and a great screened in area in case the bugs are out, or it rains. We absolutely love it.

“Perfect Family Vacation Spot”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2010

Location and set up of this home is perfect for a family vacation. We enjoyed exploring long pond and surrounding bodies of water, fishing from the dock, and relaxing in the hammock. The screened in porch was perfect for taking in the beautiful landscape in the evening. The beds were very comfortable, and waking up to the call of loons was a bonus. I would definately recommend this rental if you enjoy boating, fishing or just relaxing. The views are beautiful and the owners are very helpful. Hope you enjoy your Maine vacation as much as we did.

“Beautiful lake!”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2010

This is a very cute, comfortable house on a lake with a beautiful view! Very relaxing. Lake is crystal clear and offers fishing, boating and swimming. We were very sorry to leave. We would highly recommend a visit to Long Pond and this is the perfect house to enjoy it!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

From the Owner: Perhaps I am biased. I spent every summer of my childhood on this lake and taking daytrips to visit other areas of Maine. Personally, I cherish every moment spent in the area over the years with my family and friends. I hope you do as well.
