DOGS PERMITTED? Dogs are not allowed at this property - Sorry
Lincoln Lookout sits perched overlooking the shoreline, islands, and the vast ocean beyond. This area known as the Mussel Ridge Channel is a major traffic lane for working and pleasure boats allowing ample opportunities to watch various maritime activities. Located above the shore on a cliff, there is shared access down to the rocky beach below via a tall set of stairs. From the broad deck and comfortable seating at the house you will see, hear, and smell the ocean below.
The shore is accessible from this great water view home and within a few minutes drive are the sandy beaches - Crocketts Beach, Crescent Beach and the Birch Point Beach State Park. Restaurants, shopping and sightseeing are also very close in neighboring Rockland, St. George, Thomaston, Rockport and Camden.
BEACH CLASSIFICATION: We have categorized this property as having or being near a sandy beach. More specifically for this property - it is a short 5 minute drive to three great area beaches. The closest is Crocketts Beach, but also Birch Point Beach State Park and Crescent Beach are other public beaches within 5 minutes of the property. There is not an actual usable sandy beach at this property, but the nearby beaches are great for kids and that is why we have classified it as being on or in this case - "near" sandy beaches.
NEED EXTRA ROOM? Our newest property can be a great "addition" to this rental. Just a short distance away, this guest suite can accommodate another couple (2 guests), while remaining close to the rest of the group. Click HERE to visit the Owls Head Guest Suite property page.
Owner Boats Included?: No, in fact, this property is not a good property to boat as the beach is too rocky to launch a boat from.
LINEN/TOWEL RENTAL FEE: Yes, a linen/towel towel rental fee of $125 per rental applies. Guests may add additional towels through the reservation process. Learn more about our linen & towel rentals on the Rental Guidelines Page of our website.

Great agency to work with - very professional and any questions or issues are resolved promptly. This is our 4th time renting from On the Water and we will continue to use their services.
We loved our stay at Lincoln Lookout, it is a comfortable and cozy home. Beautiful ocean views from main living area and the deck. The house is older but had everything we needed and the kitchen was very well stocked. Comfortable beds. A great private and quiet location but access to downtown Rockland just 15 minutes away.

This is our third year renting with On the Water. As such, very little direct communication was necessary, and all transactions and paperwork were handled smoothly and efficiently on- line.
Lincoln lookout has wonderful views of the ocean. The view is as ever changing as the weather and is as beautiful by sunlight as it is by moonlight. The house is clean, attractive and welcoming. The deck is a superb place to unwind and watch the lobster boats at work. We loved the TV entertainment setup.

No problem working with On the Water in Maine. Instructions about the house and area and directions were adequate.
The view from the house and deck were lovely. The house itself needs some updating. The kitchen is too small for the number of guests (6) that the house can accommodate and the lack of a dishwasher was not pleasant for our party. Kitchen was well-stocked and the house was fairly clean.

Responsive, patient and helpful . Although we were ready to leave by 9:00 AM (long drive) it would be nice to have checkout at 11:00. Good for breakfast at owls head general store and get back to load car for long drive home.
As currently constituted., the rental is essentially for 6 days...( arrive after 4 PM. leave before 10 AM....personally, I'd prefer to pay an additional fee for cleaning later if no new guests arriving immediately following our stay...in our case, late October. (ON THE WATER IN MAINE COMMENT: - Why didn't you call and ask us? As you pointed out, the property was vacant after you departed, we would have happily allowed you to stay longer. We just had no idea that you wanted to.)
Very well equipped. Pots and pans more than adequate and like new. Comfortable beds. Warm house even though temperatures dropped to 34 degrees. No lack of dishes and glasses. Very comfortable and cozy.

The website is easy to use and provides abundant information. The booking process is clear and efficient. Questions I had were pleasantly answered through email. The agency goes out of the way to assure that renters have plenty of information and that they know assistance is at the ready if needed.
Never have I stayed at a property where every possible need was better anticipated. Lincoln Lookout is comfortable and relaxed rather than luxurious and posh, but it is equipped with every necessity, including the kitchen. Furthermore, it's situated on lovely grounds with the exact right mix of landscaping and naturalization--plus an unsurpassable water view. There is nothing more my party and I could have asked for. (No, the absence of a dishwasher was not a problem.)

Love working with On the Water in Maine. Easy payment, easy access to the house, easy contact info!
It is a lovely house, clean and well kept. Loved the view! We have stayed in 5 or 6 houses on the Maine coast. Lincoln's Lookout was the best yet! It was convenient to shopping and activities. The bed was comfortable and clean. I had coffee each morning on the deck and wine or beer each evening. We saw many sea birds, sail boats, and lobster men working right in front of the house. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. We had a fun and relaxing vacation.

The best. That was our 4th dealing with "On The Water In Maine" and we found the Agency to be very professional and helpful in every way. Wish we lived closer to make more frequent trips to Maine - and enjoy another stay on the ocean, via this Agency.
A very lovely property and grounds for adults (not small children). Lots of elegant privacy and quietness, beautiful views - especially from the ocean-facing windows and the deck, spectacular sun-rises, many eagles and deer to admire, very well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, and an easy and quick access to Rockland.

Stayed at Lincoln Lookout June 12-19. A wonderful experience; the house was so clean, I was amazed! And it was very well stocked with furniture, kitchen stuff etc., not a rental type house but a home! The view was terrific, it was very private-- nothing negative to say! Thank you.

On the Water in Maine was especially helpful in accommodating all our needs with our rental. Their suggestion book on what to do in our area was excellent. We used some of their suggestion and found them enjoyable.
Our visit at Lincoln Lookout was delightful. The open sea views were the best in our ten years of visiting the coast of Maine. We enjoyed the convenience of the stairs to the shore below the cottage.
The bed linens were especially nice.

Working with Justin and folks has been great. You have been easy to work with and you provide a lot of important information and reminder notices as required. You've made booking with you very simple. Once I made the initial reservation I didn't have to think about anything else. I can't wait to book again.
The view is amazing, the location is remote and private yet nearby and convenient, the beds are very comfortable. the home is spacious and comfortable. It's fun to go down to the water too.

Everyone at On the Water in Maine was great! Lincoln Lookout has a beautiful view, comfortable accommodations and the best equipped rental we have stayed in For a family of cooks the well equipped kitchen and new appliances were a real bonus. The owners even thought of things like nightlights, flashlights and placemats. The folks at "On the Water in Maine" made sure all our questions were answered, kept in touch and even went out of their way to inform us of a pending storm. We felt well cared for and as though we were in a well loved family vacation spot.
You have a beautiful cottage. We are four seniors (related) who travel together and rent accommodations frequently. Yours was the best equipped place we have stayed in so far. You thought of so many things we have always had to provide ourselves, like nightlights, flashlight and placemants not to mention the wonderfully outfitted kitchen and the new appliances. Heaven! We love to cook It has the atmosphere of a well loved family home. In looking at the prints on the walls and the books on the shelves we imagined a family history - the artist, the book lover, the handy man, the historian and the nature lover, whether they were all one person, various family members, or never actually existed. Thanks for a lovely, relaxing and thought provoking holiday. Have you ever thought of leaving a short house history - without identifying people or places of course - for those of us interested in backgrounds? Thank you again. The Blair Family
