A small artistic community by the sea

Once listed as of the 20 best towns to live in, Lincolnville, Maine is an unspoiled secret on the eastern seaboard. Less touristy than Camden or Rockland, Lincolnville is a colorful seaside community with all the fresh seafood, long sandy beaches and rugged outdoor sporting activities (both summer and winter) that you'd associate with Maine, but without a hefty price tag. It's also the main ferry terminal for services to the picturesque island of Islesboro. Despite, or perhaps because of, its size, it boasts a highly artistic community, including famous actors and musicians.

Things to do

From art galleries to fine dining

Lincolnville is an artisanal town with a reputation for a wide range of fine products. Artists and craftsmen, inspired by the surrounding area's natural beauty, produce some of the country's best artwork, sculpture and jewelry – shopping in this town is a unique experience. Like most coastal towns in mid-coast Maine, Lincolnville also has a great selection of eateries and bars. Alongside plates of delicious seafood, the town is fast gaining a reputation for the quality of its local wines and beers. Sample a frothy glass of local APA or a crisp chardonnay after a long day of shopping.

Activities

Outdoor fun, on and off the water

As well as the lobster, Maine is known for its wealth of sporting activities. Right on the doorstep of your Lincolnville vacation rental there is an outdoor activity for every taste and ability. Acadia National Park attracts rock climbers looking for short routes to suit all levels, while the 30 miles of trails offer hikers and cyclists breathtaking views of the bay and the open countryside. Out on the water, you can spend days on heritage boats such as a Boston Whaler or windjammer schooner. Alternatively, paddleboards and kayaks can be rented for a glorious day out on Megunticook Lake.

Weather

A great escape for all seasons

Lincolnville is best experienced from the beginning of summer through to the end of fall. Being one of the places for outdoor sports, it's best to take advantage of the mild weather and get out among the pines or launch off into West Penobscot Bay when the sun is shining through the trees or reflected on the water. That said, winter in Maine can be just as fun. The hotel rates are more affordable and if you wrap up warm enough you can step out of your Lincolnville vacation rental for the nearby National Toboggan Championships in Camden.

Natural features

From the lakes to the sea

Lincolnville is set in the center of Camden Hill's 3,500 acres of parkland. With such an auspicious location, Lincolnville vacation rentals are a magnet for wildlife enthusiasts.

These include American goldfinch, pine warblers and spotted sandpiper, as well as bald eagles. Deer, black bears and coyote can also be seen. The park offers moderate hiking all year round. The orange and blue nature trails skirt the shoreline and take visitors through ancient evergreen woodland beside the lake.
