Stroll down the meadow path and meander along a shady, mossy trail past the owners' wildlife pond. A quaint, railed, woodland footbridge leads through hemlock trees to their private 183-ft. pebble-stone beach. Here, sit on a log to view the bay and watch the ferry glide back and forth to Islesboro island, or gather striated beach stones and mussel shells. The wildlife pond you walk by is a home to numerous visiting migratory birds, visiting ducks and an occasional blue heron. Just off shore, the windjammers with their white sails often anchor briefly right off the beach while sea-going passengers tend to their lunches.
The town's brick sidewalk in front of cottage leads you to four great restaurants, the post office, gift shop, beach store, gallery and a public sand beach for sunning and wading. Lovely, flowering plants like lilies and beach roses line the sidewalk along the public, sand beach.
We think of Lincolnville as a friendly town and find it fun. We hope you do, too!

About Lauralee & James
Over the years, the owners have renovated scores of historic properties in the area, are experienced in rentals and once ran a Camden, Maine B & B. Lauralee's coastal paintings appear in local galleries. Jim, a retired professional, may be glimpsed tinkering with an old car, maintaining the grounds, or working in the garden.
Lauralee & James purchased this cottage in 1985
Why Lauralee & James chose Lincolnville
Relax by the meadow, flanked by trees, with a path to the beach on Penobscot Bay. The private pond is special, with its visiting families of mallard ducks, low-nesting red-winged blackbirds, the friendly crow visitors and skittish Great Blue herons---and occasional, shy deer or curious red fox. There is a footbridge over a small brook leading to a moss-covered, tree-shaded pathway to the beach.
This 1920s artist's cottage was completely renovated in the Autumn of 2012 for the enjoyment of seasonal guests. Along the owner's driveway in late summer, guests can pick some plump, fresh blackberries in season for topping off that morning bowl of cereal.
What makes this cottage unique
The surrounding area is laden with opportunities to canoe, kayak & back pack; walk or hike in nearby Camden Hills State Park. One can buy a ticket a few miles away to cruise or sail on the bay. While walking at Lincolnville Beach, say hello to local people and feel the pulse of the town. The dazzle in social life in a small town stems from involvement in local groups such as the Lincolnville Improvement Association (LIA). This group sponsors an annual Blueberry Wing Ding Breakfast on August 9, engages in local beautification projects, and awards scholarships to high school graduates. There are several active churches in town. An energetic team of volunteers just created a new library out of an old school house, enriching the community with scheduled lectures and cultural events and raising money through pie sales and plays, for example. The Tranquility Grange brings scheduled bean suppers to the public during the summer. The local Business Group meets regularly to plan events and make the town even more welcoming to visitors. Cottage guests can walk to some exceptional restaurants at the beach. It all adds up to a unique community here in mid-coast Maine. Lincolnville has held sway in fascinating articles in such publications as Outside Magazine and Down East as a memorable, 'destination town.' A well known vineyard (The Cellardoor Winery) finds a home in Lincolnville, featuring tastings and festive events. One can visit The Windsor Chair factory and showroom up the road; or drop by a home-based blanket factory (Swans Island Blankets) . Fresh lobsters that are caught in the bay right off the beach can be purchased in town at Hutchings' lobster barn, with its tree hung with colorful buoys. Two pubs are located within walking distance; The Whales Tooth Pub, with great meals near a huge fireplace or on the deck; the Lobster Pound, featuring seafood & a new brew pub. There's also Chez Michel, with its delicious French flair & Rick's Take Out (or eat in)-yum!
