"My husband and I wanted to spend some time in New England, because when summer hits, I want to go NORTH. This was my first time in central Maine (exluding Kittery/York) and it was exactly what we hoped for. Our goals were: relax, witness some of the beautiful nature that our Creator has made, relax, have fun, and relaaaaax. This cabin was just what we needed for that. The views of the lake, from nearly every room thanks to the many windows/sliding doors, kept us feeling serene. The kitchen was properly equipped so I was able to make dinner a few nights, which is a relaxing feature for me! We appreciated the modern bathroom - we were in a cabin, but we certainly didn't have to rough it!
The cabin was great for the 2 of us, but it would likely be cramped for any more than that. The twin bed on the screened-in porch would accommodate one, but it was honestly pretty chilly most nights so I'm glad we had the upstairs king size bed!
While visiting Pine Point, we took day trips to: Eastport/Calais, Bangor, Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park, and one day we went for a drive just to see Mt. Katahdin - no hiking up the mountain for pregnant me. The location in Lincoln was great for a small town feel, with plenty of whatever you needed around. (Little did we know upon arriving that Lincoln is one of the bigger towns in the area!)
If you're planning to eat in town, the Timberhouse Restaurant is incredibly affordable and has fantastic homemade pies. Our last night in town we visited Gillmor's, where we each had a "down east potato boat" - a massive baked potato stuffed with haddock and smothered with lobster cream sauce. That may very well bring us back to Maine another time. ;) The Farmer's Market was in Lincoln on Friday (and Calais on Tuesday) so be sure to check it out if you're looking for handmade items or homemade food."
