This peaceful, private sanctuary 4 miles north of Camden’s bustling main drag, in the quieter village of Lincolnville, seems a world apart. Service is crisp and helpful, and the setting can’t be beat: the edge of Penobscot Bay, down a long, tree-lined gravel road. The property is a cluster of contemporary, yet classic, shingled buildings; a granite bench and Adirondack chairs on the lawn allow guests to enjoy the views. Guest rooms and suites—each named for a different Maine writer or artist—are spacious, comfortable, and packed with amenities such as fireplaces, TVs with VCRs, individual heat controls, and stunning views from the plentiful windows. Breakfasts are served in a sunny conservatory. The inn’s four cottages are even more luxe and private, featuring double Jacuzzis, fireplaces, wet bars, and private decks; the Fitz Hugh Lane cottage almost feels like it’s in the bay.
