Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cabin in Lincoln
You won't find any skyscrapers or rush hour traffic here. Come sit back, relax, feel the weight of the world lifted off your shoulders, take in all the beauty and charm of this lakefront log cabin located in the beautiful Lincoln Lakes region of northern Maine. The Lincoln area has 13 lakes within its borders. with an abundance of rolling rivers, bubbling streams, deep, spring fed lakes and warm water ponds loaded with great bass, white perch and trout fishing.
'The Phoenix' located on a dead end road, right on the waters edge of one of Lincolns most beautiful lakes, features a master bedroom, a sleeping loft overlooking the kitchen and great room with sky lights and a beautiful brick fireplace. A sitting room with cathedral ceilings and skylights where you can just sit, relax and read a book or gather with family to play board games or do a puzzle. A large full bathroom with tub just in case you want to soak away all that stress! A large deck ( about fifteen feet from the waters edge) overlooking the lake where you can cook dinner on the grill and enjoy the scenery.
At night sit around the fire pit, look up at the stars and listen to the Loons talk to each other. It is an amazing place!!

I've been vacationing in Maine with my family since I was old enough to walk. My mother is a true 'Maine-iac', born and raised not far from the cabin and although she moved away when she and my father were married in 1954 we would always end up in Maine on vacation. So in 1985 the opportunity arose and my parents purchased the original cabin that sat on this very spot. In 1994 there was a devastating fire and the cabin was lost. After not knowing really what to do my mom decided to rebuild and in 1995 my sisters named our new cabin 'The Phoenix'.
If you've never been to Maine then you don't know how breathtaking it really is. Pictures or words cannot explain the calm and the relaxation felt here. You just can't find it anyplace else. To my family, it's the most beautiful place on the planet.
My mother lived in the cabin year round until late 2011 and has since decided to relocate a little closer to her great grandchildren. My sisters and I have been coming here all our lives and our children have been coming here their whole lives and now my grandchildren are coming here. Although friends and family have stayed over the years 2012 will be the first year that we will be renting the cabin. After generations it's part of us and we just don't want to let it go.
One of the most unique benefits of our cabin is that it sits at the end of a dead end road, so you never deal with any dusty traffic driving by, it is so calm and quiet. I've never had anyone, friends or family, stay at the cabin and not say ' it's the most beautiful place we've ever stayed' you get mesmerized just sitting on the deck and staring out over the lake at the scenery. or at night sitting at the fire pit looking up at the stars, you get dizzy there are so many!
