Welcome. The Lincolnville Motel is a new version of a classic Maine Motel. The property was originally developed as a motel in the 1950s and has been in operation for many years.
It was purchased and refreshed by Alice Amory in the spring of 2015 and opened as the Lincolnville Motel in the summer of 2015. All of the original structures remain, but have been pared down and refreshed with a liberal use of white paint. The result is simple and minimal, creating a place to unplug, unwind and enjoy 100% cotton sheets.
There are no televisions or phones in the rooms, but there are record players and books, both of which can be exchanged within our collection. There’s an outdoor swimming pool, charcoal grills, lawn games, and a main building with WiFi, a coffee/tea room, a library room and decks overlooking the sea. Our pool has a diverse collection of inflatable animals, but no lifeguard on duty so please be responsible! This is a great place to have a good time, but it isn’t a polished resort. If you want to experience something a little different, please come visit.
Built on nearly four acres of gently sloping open field with views of Penobscot Bay and its islands, the Lincolnville Motel is located directly on Route One just south of Lincolnville Beach. There is no ocean access from the property. The motel is made up of six guest cabins and four guest rooms. All cabins and rooms have ocean views, mini refrigerators, record players and private bathrooms with Malin+Goetz products. There is a common area with a microwave, electric kettle and coffee in the morning.
Pets with responsible owners are welcome at the motel. There is a $25 fee per pet, per stay.
Check-in is from 3-7pm. If you think you will be arriving later, please let us know in advance. Check out is at 11am.
Because of our small size, cancellations affect us greatly, but in the summer of 2022, we understand that plans may change. We now take a 50% deposit at the time of booking, and all reservations are fully refundable up to 48 hours in advance. There is no fee to change the date of a reservation. Please review the state guidelines for travel during the pandemic, as you may be required to present a negative Covid-19 test and/or complete a quarantine prior to your stay. We are closely monitoring the guidelines for operation and hope to ensure a safe and happy stay for all guests. Please see the below link for more information from the State of Maine:
The Lincolnville Motel is an older property with plenty of quirks. As such, we ask that all guests use good judgment and refrain from behaving in ways that might endanger themselves, other guests, or the property itself. Smoking is not allowed in any of the buildings.
Alice Amory grew up in nearby Camden, Maine. She spent more than a dozen years in New York City doing things like going to college, working in a gallery, living in Brooklyn and cooking professionally in fancy restaurants. She returned to Maine for the amazing quality of life and continues to cook for private clients. Her hope is that the motel brings something fresh to the area and that it will encourage more young people to move to Maine. Future plans for the site include expanded food service and a year-round sauna club.
