A LITTLE JEWEL CLOSE TO TWO BEACHES: MEADOW BEACH COTTAGE

Lincolnville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 BR charming cottage with sea and mountain views- 2 persons max.

Newly renovated: Sleeps 2, 1 BR, 1 bath w/shower, roomy kitchen, cable, wireless, washer/dryer. Our cozy and convenient guest cottage with its cedar clapboards and green shutters features a wood-lined interior. Overhead beams provide a Maine-pioneer ambiance. Spacious pine kitchen with new cupboards and freshly refinished floors. The bonus is seeing the water views and island and mountain glimpses from the windows and deck.

Cottage pluses: New bathroom with granite counter top, roomy shower. A pleasant bead-board bedroom with Queen bed. Small utility room with stackable washer/dryer, ironing board and a place to hide away your suitcases. Side deck with grill, and small front porch.

White-washed, wood paneled living room opens onto the railed deck; living room is light and bright and features a full-sized sofa for stretching out for a nap.

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!

If you are reading this in an attempt to find a vacation place, look no further! This is it! This cottage has everything you could need for a restful escape...lovely LR with view, rockers, tv/DVD, BR with comfy Q bed, laundry, nice bathroom with plenty of towels, deck with grill and table and chairs...and beautiful walkway to the stony beach. The owners are wonderful! You can't go wrong with this place. Hope to be here again, but for a week instead of only a few days.

Meadow Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We were in Maine for a family reunion, and Meadow Beach Cottage was just what we needed! It was close to everything, and the owners were very accommodating about a last minute addition. We visited some of the stores and restaurants listed in their "guidebook" and were able to walk to many of them! Since most of our time was filled with reunion activities, we were not able to spend as much time at the cottage as we would have liked. Still, we had a chance to walk down to the private beach, and see the sunrise. The weather was beautiful!

*Season: Early May to mid-Oct.* Meadow Beach Cottage is conveniently located in a friendly and accessible village neighborhood. This self-catering cottage embraces a multi-colored palette of views from mountain to sea. Newly renovated, close to the main road, beside a natural meadow of waving grasses and wildflowers. Guests are invited to explore the 180-ft. private, pebble-stone beach. Discover the different colored and striated stones dating back to glacial periods or spot the occasional coastal schooner that drifts at anchor directly off shore. Lobster boats bob on their moorings daily; in late afternoon the sun glitters and winks off their windows as if they're sending Morris code messages saying, 'See how beautiful it is.'

Near the front door walk along the brick sidewalk to the local pubs and several restaurants. Sun, relax or wade at the public sand beach and enjoy free parking, a magical escape from stress.

Two local gifts shops are stocked with trendy pieces by created by local craftsmen and artisans; books; and a variety of unique, seacoast treasures. There's a fine arts gallery, too. Stroll to the beach store for a cup of coffee and carry it across the street to sit on a bench by the sea to follow the antics of the sea gulls, read the paper or see the island-bound ferry depart on the hour. The local post office is right across from the beach. Just a quarter mile down the road a favorite coffee shop beckons those bent on a culinary outing.

Here at Meadow Beach Cottage, a former art studio, is your base for day excursions. Relax in a charming atmosphere, cozy and filled with light. From the side deck glimpse the sparkling waters of the bay. Or, curl up indoors with a book on the comfy sofa. A beautiful blend of old and new combines convenience with charm to create a snug haven with sweeping views of lawns and meadow.

Try a country ramble or drive through Camden Hills State Park trails to see some of Maine's best scenery at the mountain top, with its 'forever' view from the top. 1930s observation tower with picnic areas. Shopping, grocery stores, banks, libraries, waterfront docks, marinas, farmers' markets and cultural attractions are featured in our nearby towns of Camden to the South; and Belfast to the North. It's easy to sign up on the Camden docks for a guided day sail or cruise around the harbor. You can see the tall-masted, historic windjammer schooners in port on weekends; they enter the harbor on Saturday mornings for the layover. For a splash in your day, there's even a small waterfall at Camden harbor.

Midcoast Maine draws many visitors due to its timeless appeal--mountains by the sea, harborside shopping possibilities, towering firs, and opportunities for cliff climbing, or strolling along hiking trails amidst murmuring pines. It annually attracts artists, poets and writers. Do feel welcome to glimpse our cottage photos, and we hope to greet you between May and October. We have rented the cottage often during the last 15 years and cherish the positive comments left in our guest books. As former owners of a Camden bed and breakfast inn , we try to make your visit as pleasant as possible. Special events spark the calendar each year in Lincolnville: a July Strawberry Festival in the center, an August Blueberry Wing Ding breakfast at the beach, grange pot luck suppers throughout the summer, craft shows, local library talks and events.
