Lincolnville is home to a year-round population of about 2,000 people along the coast of Penobscot Bay. This is a postcard-scenic part of Maine with many islands, charming harbors, lots of lobster boats, mountains, hills, lakes, ponds, fields and farms. The motel located is just north of the town of Camden and just south of the village of Lincolnville Beach. Lincolnville is a great place to relax and an convenient base for day trips.
We highly recommended that you explore the surrounding area! The shoreline is easily accessible nearby, many excellent hikes afford amazing ocean views, and an array of local outfitters rent boats, bikes, paddle boards, offer sailing and fishing trips and all kinds of wholesome experiences. There are also a number of respected galleries, cultural institutions, dining and shopping destinations.
Maine gets many visitors in the summer and the area transforms into thriving community with farmers’ markets, art events, flea markets and yard sales. There’s still not a lot of crazy nightlife, but some great places to drink outdoors in the late afternoon.
