Brandy Pond is a small lake in Naples, Maine, United States, that is connected to Long Lake by the Chute River. Brandy Pond is connected to Sebago Lake by the Songo River which runs through Sebago Lake State Park. To get to Sebago Lake through the Songo River you must pass through the Songo locks, one of the last remaining hand operated locks in the country. The Songo River Queen departs Naples to the Songo River locks and returns past Breezy Point en route back.

Brandy Pond is bounded by a commercial or downtown area called the "causeway" on Rt. 302. An area of homes on the southerly side called Scenic Drive and a golf course on the northern side as well as many private homes and public campgrounds and condominiums.
