“Tranquility on Long Pond is just that. A classic New England view of still waters through a scattering of trees from the screen porch of a spacious and modern Maine log house cabin. We came here to visit friends and relax having long wanted to get away in the Belgrade region. Nestled on Tracy Cove on the north end of Long Pond, there's calm waters to kayak and or row - water craft provided in the summer; in the winter the ice and snow seem to stretch on forever and ice fishing is definitely a thing in the Oakland area. The full size wood stove along with new furnace and baseboard heating keep it plenty warm in the winter. A full kitchen, well stocked and ready to cook and serve meals for a groups up to 6 or more. The three queen size beds and 2 single beds were freshly made and towels provided. Both bathrooms are up to date, squeaky clean with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. Joe was responsive and accurate in all communications and the directions provided the day before arrival were spot on. The house feels larger than it is and is less than a 1/8 mile from the main road. Local services include the obligatory Day's general store with a single (functioning) gas pump, the local pub and grub is the Sunset Grill and a little higher up on the dining scale the Village Inn - all worthwhile establishments to support by keeping it local. We are looking forward to a return visit before too long.”
Secluded & artistically built - a new cabin on top of Hampshire Hill. For those who want to remember what silence sounds like. Sit, enjoy the views, hear yourself think, or go explore 75 acres of private woods w 2 miles of private trails. 10 minutes from downtown Belgrade Lakes & public beaches on Long Pond & Great Pond. Close to Kennebec trails, snowmobile trails, Farmington & Augusta. 1 hr south of ski resorts. Great for stopping for 1 night or for taking a week to escape from the world.
“If you're reading this, stop, and book this place. I too searched many listings, and I too read the good reviews of Kate's place. They are true. This is an amazing experience. Kate's cabin is a modern and very clean space with a view. We travelled from Boston up the Maine coast during the winter, and then down the New Hampshire Mountains. It was a sublime trip with amazing views, and we can only wish we could spend more time there. We had amazing food on the way. The best lobster rolls at Red Barn 30 minutes away and many more other experiences. Snowshoeing in the quiet forest gave us a silence that we have never heard before. Never did we realize the world can be so quiet. You could not hear a thing, and it's a feeling you just have to live for yourself in the winter. That being said, the activities are much limited in the winter, so expect a more quiet and less activity filled stay. Board games and fireplace are excellent touches. One concern: We arrived right after sunset, and it was dark enough that us city dwellers were a little creeped out. Beware fellow city dwellers! I do wish some of the front windows and doors had some screens, since we're not used to an atmosphere so "one" with nature. A couple curtains would really help with privacy and coziness!”
Enjoy the spacious studio apartment conveniently located above Ambition Brewing.
“Jeff was a very attentive host, and the communication before the stay was tremendous. Unfortunately my travel plans changed at the last minute, but Jeff was very helpful and was great with communication. I'm looking forward to getting up there next time. Thanks Jeff!”
