Private cottage on island with 360 views of Pemaquid Lake
About Christina Pinkham
Lakehurst Properties has been in operation as a family business on the coast of Maine since the early 1920’s. After a brief period as “Camp Pemaquid”, a boys’ summer camp, the original cottages were converted into all-seasonal rentals for those seeking a lakeside retreat. The property has been in the Pinkham family for over 4 generations. Honeymoon Island was built by Lawson Pinkham in the 1930s on the island off the cove of Lakehurst Properties. Today, Dan and Ann Pinkham, along with their sons Dan Jr., Jon, and Josh, own and operate Lakehurst Properties LLC.
Christina Pinkham purchased this Cottage in 1935
Why Christina Pinkham chose Damariscotta
Honeymoon Island is one of only a few cottages on Pemaquid Lake that is situated on an island. It is very private and offers guests a unique experience of island living. It is special to the Pinkham Family as it was built by Dan Pinkham Sr.'s father, Lawson Pinkham, in the 30s.

Pemaquid Lake offers over 15 miles of water for fishing and exploration with access by boat to Biscay Pond, Duck Puddle Pond, and the Pemaquid River. There is excellent fishing throughout the watershed for pickerel, perch, brown trout and bass. Beautiful and historic downtown Damariscotta is only minutes away where you can experience a vibrant mix of unique shops, community services, fine dining, the Lincoln Theatre and many artists’ galleries.
Located near the head of the Damariscotta River, twelve miles from the ocean, Damariscotta is a key focal point for mid coast Maine residents and visitors. The town is the gateway to the Pemaquid Region which includes popular historical attractions such as the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse and the colonial restoration at Fort William Henry, and also provides a great jumping off point to the entire Maine Coast including islands like Monhegan.
