About the property

Oceanfront Home with Sweeping Views of Bay,Private Beach, minutes from Camden

Gaze at the water from almost every room in this tastefully designed & comfortably furnished home on the banks of Penobscot Bay central to both Camden and Belfast. The home is sun-drenched with large windows facing the ocean and glorious light all day long. open layout is functional and maximizes the views from the kitchen, dining room, sitting area & living room -- all flowing together from space to space. This is an exceptional home to entertain in and it can accommodate a large group or family effortlessly and in style. A gently sloping & grassy back yard leads to a classic Maine beach with stunning ledge outcroppings & granite boulders. A waterside fire pit and picnic table offer a great spot to enjoy the day or night. Two rare sand beach areas are just a few hundred yards to the north or south and offer endless opportunity for beach combing and ocean exploring Maine style.

The Main House

Main house consists of 3 bedrooms on 2nd floor including the master suite with shower & soaking tub. The master bedroom is spacious and has broad views up and down the bay. A full bath with double sinks services the other upstairs bedrooms and a full laundry room is also located on the 2nd floor. The 1st floor features a large kitchen with granite counters & island and professional 6 burner stove and griddle & stainless appliances. The dining room offers seating for 10 + and is open to the kitchen & living room and framed by multiple bay windows with panoramic ocean views. The comfortable living room offers plenty of seating for watching a game or movie and has views to the ocean as well. A cozy sitting area with woodstove & lovely views offers additional space for relaxing. A 4th bedroom is also located on the 1st floor. A bathroom with shower & mudroom/entry, and 3-car garage round out the 1st floor. The finished basement also offers additional bedroom space for children or young adults and also features a bath with shower providing a 5th bedroom in the main house as necessary.

The Loft Apartment

A privately situated loft apartment over the garage offers spectacular views in a rustic yet contemporary setting. Vaulted ceilings with pine boards, massive fir beams & exquisite red birch floors create a stunning loft like living space. Kitchen with stainless appliances, living room area with cozy gas stove, pleasant bedroom with carpet, bath with shower & laundry, kitchen & additional loft area for kids provides a spacious and very unique living experience. A private porch area looks out over the bay and islands with almost 180 degree vistas. A staircase connects directly to the kitchen area of the main house thus offering a direct connection while also allowing for more privacy in the living & bedroom areas.

Outside Space, Yard & Beach

The home is surrounded by a lush grassy yard, shrubs and some woods yet the feel is essentially wide open with lots of sunlight and views everywhere. A large back deck offers outside eating and sitting areas as well as a 6-person hot tub over looking the ocean. The beach is 200 feet from the home and is easily accessible down the gently sloping lawn. A neat old fish house covered with lobster buoys sits right on the edge of the ocean and houses kayaks, beach chairs, firewood, and all the items one needs to enjoy a Maine summer on the ocean. A local paddleboard outfitter will gladly guide you on a tour of the nearby coast right from you own beach!

About Kate Cohen

I grew up in Camden, just a few miles down the road from here and was lucky enough to return with my husband to raise our four children in Maine. My husband is a Real Estate Broker here in town and we are both very active in our community. This area is a truly special spot and we believe whether this is your first visit or your 100th, it won't be your last! We work very hard to make your stay enjoyable, we are accessible…you may run into us in town at Boyton Mckay or having a snack on the deck of the Waterfront. We hope to see you soon!

Kate Cohen purchased this house in 2006

Why Kate Cohen chose Mid-Coast & Islands

A wonderful place to enjoy the ocean and the freedom for kids to play safely. The house is large without feeling too big, and it all comes together to make a wonderful place to be with family and friends.

What makes this house unique

The setting, house, views and convenient location to Camden & Belfast distinguish this home. It is simply a one-of-a-kind and provides a spectacular spot from which to base your Maine vacation.

Perfect for our family...We're still talking about it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family's stay at Ocean Cottage, just a couple weeks ago, proved to be everything we had hoped for! " A picture is worth 1000 words," and if there was a way for me to post photos, I wouldn't have to say anything! Our family of 8, including all 3 generations, thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities! The views were always amazing, especially at sunrise, and the spaciousness of the house enabled private space if or when needed. It was definitely a family friendly home. My 3 year old granddaughter loved her bedroom, complete with a mural and stuffed animals to greet her!

The proximity to Mount Battie, Camden, Belfast, Rockland, Bar Harbor and Acadia (just to name a few) made exploring so much more enjoyable!

Our short stay provided us with memories to last a lifetime...It truly was a vacation we will all remember fondly! To return someday, would be something we would all welcome and certainly look forward to!😊� Thanks Cohen family for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Owner's Response: Manley, Too bad that you were sick! We worked extra hard to get the sea cottage ready and also to allow your large family gathering. It's a shame you were unable to enjoy that.

Great house, wonderful kitchen, fabulous views, tide pools, tire swing, fun for kids, good privacy!

  • 5 of 5

This is third year we have stayed here and we want to come again. Great facilities for large family experience. Five available bedrooms plus great separate apartment over garage. Large deck with hot tub overlooking large grass lawn and Penobscott Bay with Islesboro across the way'

Wonderful kitchen well equipped with great appliances. Located on Americas Highway #1 a mile from a great Lobster Pound and the Islesboro Ferry and only about 8 minutes from the historic and enchanting port of CAMDEN, MAINE!

Magical stay at a lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for better accommodations for our large, multi-generational family for a reunion trip over the 4th of July week. Kate was so responsive and easy to communicate with before and throughout our stay, quick to answer any little question we had or even for advice on where to order a cake for a special event we were hosting. The house was even larger and nicer than we had pictured. The yard is a kids' wonderland, and the rocky beach was fun for the little ones as well. Would definitely recommend -- in fact, would love to go back and stay myself, if I ever find myself in these parts again! Lincolnville was the perfect landing spot for a summer getaway.

Awesome family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay at Ocean Cottage in Lincolnville. This property is even more beautiful than the pictures. The ocean views are amazing. This house is beautiful, well cared for, and clean, and the amenities far exceeded our expectations. There were 7 of us ages ranging from 18 to 83 and it never felt crowded due to the spaciousness of the house. The open Kitchen and living areas were wonderful, you could cook meals, and still be a part of conversations in the living area. If the weather would have cooperated a little more I am sure we would have enjoyed making use of the outside amenities like the hot tub, deck and fire pit. Kate was wonderful, always answered any questions we had when we contacted her. The close proximity to areas such as Camden, Belfast, Bar Harbor, Acadia and Rockland, made it possible to see other areas of Maine and what they had to offer which was an added bonus. I would highly recommend staying at this property and hope we will have the opportunity to stay at Kate's place in the future.
