Overview

Photos and Description of this Lincolnville holiday house

Beautiful log home with swimming dock and float

Treat yourself to a real Maine experience - stay in a 1800-sq foot pine log cabin nestled in the woods off a dirt road, on a private lake. This newly constructed, charming log home sits on beautiful Coleman Pond (no public access with an across-the-pond-view of 150 acres of undeveloped conservation land). A private dock and swimming float await for hours of swimming, fishing, boating and floating in tubes.

Enjoy your morning coffee on the porch listening to the call of the loons, curl up in the comfy rope hammock with a good book, or cozy up to the fire pit for campfire songs and s'mores.

This cabin was built with year-round use in mind, and is equipped with a modern kitchen with red painted cabinets, soapstone counters, a soapstone farmhouse sink, stainless steel appliances, a gas stove, a dishwasher, and a full-sized washer and dryer. Surf and turf feasts are easy to prepare with the propane lobster cooker and gas grill. House has two full bathrooms, front-loading washer/dryer, wifi access, telephone, radiant floor heat, working glass-front wood stove, and ceiling fans in each bedroom. Dine indoors with dimmed chandelier or outdoors on two picnic tables. House is fully stocked with cooking utensils, pots/pans, glassware, dishes, linens and towels.

Old Town Discovery canoe and paddles, life jackets, and inflatable tubes available for renter use.

Fabulous Log Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was fabulous in every way. Clean, well equipped and filled with fun things to do. We loved the canoe, kayak, paddle board and campfire circle. What a great escape in a beautiful location.

Lily pads, Loons and log cabin leisure!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to experience the true cottage/cabin lifestyle on a Maine pond/lake, then this the perfect setting! The log cabin design features beautiful knotty pine throughout the interior, and although it has a traditional cabin feel, it also has all of the comforts of home. The kitchen includes a large country style farm sink, dishwasher, very nice gas range, microwave, and large refrigerator. The washer/dryer are conveniently located in the mud room near the entrance. The master bedroom is tastefully appointed and the king bed is very comfortable. Both the upstairs and downstairs baths are spacious and clean. The downstairs living area features a Franklin stove, a traditional Maine lake cabin fixture.

The cabin has a large front porch area for relaxing and the property also includes a very nice fire pit, a swing, a barbecue grill, and a hammock for those afternoon naps. The pond access features a newer design dock with a square stern canoe and kayak for navigating Coleman Pond. Life vests/preservers are provided.

Coleman Pond is a beautiful setting and the opposite side of the pond is undeveloped. As they have for decades (or centuries) the Loons patrol the pond and with their wails/calls they complete the peaceful environment that is this tranquil cabin on Coleman Pond.

The cabin is well maintained and was clean and fully stocked with all necessary amenities from paper towels to bath towels. The hosts are excellent with information and answering questions. They have thought of everything to make the experience trouble free. We wish we could have stayed longer. We certainly plan to return next summer.

Modern Log Cabin on beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful log cabin house on a large quiet lake that has no public access. The interior of the house is lovely and spacious. It was more than enough space for a family of 4 and could easily accommodate 6 or 8. The lake is great for swimming and the owners also supplied numerous boats for us to use which we really enjoyed. The owners were extremely accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. I can't say enough about this spot. It was great!

Best of Maine

  • 5 of 5

Cannot say enough about this gorgeous cabin, its furnishings, and setting. Log cabin is set off the beaten path, but within easy driving distance to Acadia Nat'l Park, Bar Harbor, Camden and Belfast. So much to do if you would like to explore. If you would like to stay at the cabin, the hosts have provided anything you would need to have a great time on the beautiful lake. Our children are teens and were kept busy with the provided paddleboard, kayaks, and canoe. Private dock is partial sun and partial shade during the day, and there is a firepit and wood provided for marshmallow toasting and stories at night. Within the cabin, the hosts have provided ANYTHING you would possibly have forgotten at home. I was honestly better supplied at this cabin than any other cottage or hotel in other states. From bug spray to dental floss, the hosts have carefully thought out all needs of travelers. The cabin itself is spotless and every corner is super clean. The kitchen has all your needs (although we bought our own groceries) and there are several places nearby that provide fresh lobster which you can cook or have them cook. In early July, the temperature was crisp at night sleeping with windows open and did not get higher than 75 degrees during the day-NO humidity! There were board games, puzzles and books to choose from and the kids didn't even need the provided tv with dvds. We were so blessed to have our last leg of a long trip here and achieved total relaxation before coming home. The hosts went out of their way to schedule us in an additional day when we requested it, as well as being at our beck and call with texts and questions. We so appreciated their fast reply to our needs. We will be back!

The Best Cabin Ever

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the cabin do not do it justice. As you drive down the road you start to notice you really are secluded. Once you arrive the first thing you notice is beautiful Coleman Pond . This cabin came complete with a kayak,canoe ,paddle board ,floats and life vest in various sizes. Which were used daily by my four children. Inside the cabin it came complete with everything listed and more. All the beds were extremely comfortable .The bathrooms were spacious and came with towels and beach towels.The owner was even kind enough to place necessities in case you forgot any in the medicine cabinet . The kids bedroom was perfect for my four since they had two bunk beds. But what was really special was the bookcase with books,games and the loon whistle. My kids spent countless hours in the evenings playing Uno because there is no cable which is a blessing in disguise.The main bedroom does have a tv and dvd player with boxes of movies which we used nightly . The kitchen was complete with everything you could imagine and extras like foil,ziplock bags and spices.The back of the cabin has a wonderful hammock,fire pit and picnic table which was enjoyed by all. This cabin exceeded my expectations and my children can't wait to go back next year and create new memories!

Idyllic setting

  • 4 of 5

Really wonderful and peaceful place to be!! We were there last week of Aug. Coleman Pond is like a small lake, not a lot of boaters on the pond during our stay. The owners have a fully equipped and beautifully kept log home. We had use of their paddle board, canoe, kayak and floating dock. They also have a hammock, picnic tables and great fire pit area! Had a great time! Would definitely like to visit again!!
