PINE POINT IS NOW BOOKING FOR 2015 SEASON

Lincoln Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Welcome to Pine Point Cabin. Located in central Maine on 5 wooded acres. This rustic cottage remains much as it was more than 100 years ago when it was first built.

Loons will lull you to sleep with their haunting calls or maybe it’s the rhythm of water pushing against rocks that will be the last thing you hear before nodding off. Wake to the brilliantly-bright, early-morning sunrises or sleep until noon - as you please. Star filled nights end days that are dotted with ospreys, song birds and even soaring bald eagles. This is nature at its finest. Whether you choose to be an observer or participant, the hope is that you find rest, serenity and a part of yourself that welcomes being nurtured by nature.

Pine Point is:

1 hour's drive from Bangor

less than an hour to the entrance to Baxter State Park,

2 hours from Bar Harbor

3.5 hours from Portland, ME

5 hours from Boston

An hour drive to the Canadian border. 5-hours to Nova Scotia, Canada.

Day trips to the coast of Maine, Mt. Katahdin or into Canada are doable from this central location.

Pine Point has been in the Webster family since 1942.

Keywords: rustic cabin, private as well as secluded, ideal for writers and artists, photo opportunities with wildlife, perfect for a couple, wonderful location for a personal retreat where stillness abounds.

Pine Point is owned by sisters who grew up in Lincoln, one of whom still resides there and will be your hostess during your stay. The picture above is of our grandmother fishing on the lake in the early 1950s.

Our grandfather and grandmother bought the camp from the Holmes family in 1942. The story goes that our uncle Bob and his chums from Yale came up to Maine to help build the wraparound porch which face the lake on 2 sides. Later a kitchen was added and then our parents added a spacious bathroom with shower to complete the seasonal cottage.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1942

Pine Point is about the most peaceful place on the planet. The lake is quiet with few motor boats to disturb the calm. It looks onto Mt. Katahdin from the front and a calm cove home to bald eagles. White birches line the drive and shore and the forest floor is an accumulation of endless seasons of pine needle spills giving it a spongy feel underfoot.

We grew up going to Pine Point for a day or a picnic, and our own children now know that it's a second home away from the business of their lives. There were even stairs built to get to the top of one giant boulder so that a young child with limited mobility could have the feeling of adventure that climbing rocks can bring.

* The original cabin has a newly updated and spacious bathroom with a shower stall and a fully-stocked kitchen.

* When needed, it is heated by a wood stove and electric heat.

* This cabin has great historical significance as it was owned by Ernest Holmes' family prior to being purchased by our grandparents in 1942. Ernest Holmes was a native of Lincoln and the founder of the Centers for Spiritual Living [formerly known as Religious Science] - one of the great thinkers of the 20th century. For more information about this link to the past and for more photos of Pine Point, see the website listed below.

* We know how discouraging it can be to travel for vacation and then have to do something mundane like grocery shop, so we have offered an grocery shopping option for anyone who wants to arrive to a fully-stocked kitchen and refrigerator. We will buy local and organic where available, and the total cost of stocking the cottage is 15% of the total grocery bill.

* Information about local Maine Guides for fishing and hiking is available. Some are relatives with lots of knowledge about the area.

BEAUTIFUL BEYOND EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
The camp and the cabin are lovely, cozy, and most of all peaceful. The owners went out of their way to accommodate our needs!! We fished, read, relaxed and enjoyed the peaceful location. Added amenities, at no cost, are loons, an eagle, available canoe, fishing tackle and everything needed for a good stay. Plan on going back in the future. Could keep going on, but perfection does not need dozens of words to express it.

BEAUTIFUL, COMFORTABLE HIDEAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the cabin was great! The cabin, and all the amenities, is just as described and pictured. e Within a 10 minute drive from the cabin you will find a grocery store, pizza, Chinese, even a Wal-Mart. It was easy to get to Bar Harbor for a day trip (about 2 hours away) and up to Baxter State Park (a little less than one hour away). We stayed at the cabin and relaxed for two days--- paddled around the lake in the canoe and the kayaks (our 9-year old loved the kayaks and paddle boat). The lake is large enough to take a 3 hour canoe ride--- there are some more remote portions of the lake where you can stop and eat lunch on some rocks and enjoy the surroundings. Although there is no cable TV, there is a wide selection of DVD's and video tapes to choose from for evenings/rainy days; and our Verizon Wireless signal worked fine at the cabin. Overall, a peaceful, convenient, comfortable little getaway! We would definitely consider renting this cabin again for a future trip to central Maine (which means a lot considering we typically do not visit the same place 2x --- so many places to go/stay and so little time!) *The VRBO description does not clarify if there is a gas or charcoal grill--- There is a fire pit with a removable grill top that is great for campfires; but we brought a small charcoal hibachi grill with us from home for grilling meats and vegetables for dinner. Also, on cool late summer nights our daughter slept on the couch in the living room because she was a little cold on the sleeping porch. The cabin is perfect for 2 adults, or 2 adults and one small child.

DWW STAY

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful two weeks my husband and I spent at camp! E-mails between the owners and myself answered all questions. Right to the last day we were still discovering things we had not seen before. We were allowed to have a "remembrance" party with some old friends who used to come there when the late owner would invite us all for lunch. Also, I had asked to do some chores to take up the time while my husband (with dementia) slept. It was a joy to be a part of such beautiful surroundings and make it a little nicer. Amenities were abundant and ambiance was everywhere. Pictures don't do the site justice as sitting outside by the fire with the beautiful flowers, calling loons, lapping water, and waving fishermen is so very peaceful and worth every cent of the rental. I have already recommended the property to others. The town is close and yet we were quite alone...enough to dare to don a bathing suit and take my husband swimming for the first time in a few years. We took several day trips to easily accessible venues since Lincoln is truly right in the heart of Maine. The view from the master suite window is astonishing, and there are an abundance of books, pamphlets, and movie tapes and videos for the "resting" moments. Our ages 9 and 12 granddaughters came the last two days and enjoyed the noodles and kayaks (their first attempts went quite well.) provided. We could not have asked for more or expected any more than was graciously offered. It was perfect for my husband's kind of disability.

SERENE LAKESIDE RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
A solo traveler, I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Pine Point Cabin. Even though it's easy to find, and within walking distance from the main town road, it feels (and sounds!) like hidden retreat. The cabin was clean and adorable, with a spacious kitchen and bathroom, and a king-sized bed. There are numerous places in the cabin and outside to sit or lie and relax--lawn chairs, a hammock, a screened in porch. It was great to have your own private dock, and access to kayaks and canoes! I paddled around every day. The town is super cute--just a few pizza shops, chinese restaurants, a grocery store, and some discount and crafty stores.

Overall, it was my dream spot for quiet time to rest and recharge. I recommend Pine Point 100%!

Note: for those who "need" internet access on your computer, you can contact your provider and use your cell phone as a hot spot for computer internet access. It was about $20 for Verizon for a month (minimum time to activate).

WONDERFUL STAY AT PINE POINT

  • 5 of 5
Our 8-day stay at the cottage started by getting our 22-year old son started on his through-hike of the Appalachian Trail. We spent a full-day at Baxter State Park (about an hour's drive from Lincoln) hiking, birding and kayaking. Once he was on his way south, my husband and I settled in for a relaxing and beautiful time on the lake. Fishing, kayaking, watching (and listening to) loons & bald eagles.... wish we could have stayed longer!

GORGEOUS CABIN IN SMALL TOWN MAINE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in this cabin on a trip to Maine from Atlanta. It's charming and whimsical, with all the amenities of a hotel, and none of the noise. (Unless you count waking up each morning to the sound of loons as noise ;)
The location was perfect, far enough away from town I didn't hear any cars, but close enough that running in was never an inconvenience. The spot on the lake itself cannot be beat. It's located on a small peninsula of land that jets out into the water. Grab a chair and sit on the wharf and look around, and your field of vision is completely filled with the beauty of the lake and hills.

Our stay was quick, but relaxing, This was the getaway spot I needed to recharge my batteries before heading back to the city. I cannot recommend this enough.
