Original Lucerne-in-Maine cabin


Property Details

Updated: Jul 21, 2016
Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Enjoy a quiet, peaceful vacation in a secluded rustic original Lucerne-in-Maine cabin nestled among mature trees on the side of a mountain. Our cabin, built in 1929, has 2 bedrooms, a screened porch, a sun filled dining room, and, a 16x24 ft. deck, all overlooking scenic views of Phillips Lake and the surrounding mountains. You will enjoy the outdoors the entire time you spend at our cabin. We have provided almost all the amentities you will need; including all cooking utensils, linens, outdoor furniture, fire pit, propane or charcoal grill. Or, spend some quiet time in the cabin enjoying a fire in the granite fireplace while watching the 42' Plasma tv with directv, dvd player, WIFI, and much more.

When you venture out to explore Maine's beauty; you will be located 10 - 15 miles from Bangor / Brewer, Maine to the north & Ellsworth, Maine to the south; both of these areas have Super Walmarts and any other possible ammenity you may need.

Further to the south (34 miles) is Bar Harbor, Maine; Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. Or, take a drive down coastal Rt. 1, where you can stop at several roadside flea markets, antique shops, scenic views, and, restaurants along the way.

To the north is Moosehead Lake in Greenville, Maine where you will enjoy more scenic views. Moosehead Lake is 40 miles long where a ride on the 'Katadin' river boat is a wicked way to capture all the views including Mt. Kineo.

A short distance further to the north is Baxter State Park. This area is more than 20 sq. miles of forest to explore with scenic water falls, lakes, wildlife, and the magnificant Mt. Katahdin...the largest mountain in Maine.

I have lived in this area for 12 years, and I have not been able to see everything Maine has to offer.

We have thought of almost everything! All you will need to bring is groceries, your clothes, family, friends, and your toothbrush!

Come join us for an amazing, restful vacation; fulfilled with beautiful, peaceful scenic views of Maine. I believe you will come back again and again.

If there is anything we may have forgotten or something special you would need during your stay, please ask.

Amazing rustic cabin in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here at the Lucerne-in-Maine cabin! The surrounding scenery is beautiful and it was only about a 45 minute drive down to visit Acadia National Park. We had rainy weather but still enjoyed cozying up in front of the wood burning fire place and sitting in the front porch room watching the storm! The home was well stocked with linens, extra toiletries, kitchen supplies, and drinking water so we didn't need to leave looking far anything we forgot! Thanks so much for a memorable stay!!

Great cabin in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin! The wooded setting is absolutely gorgeous! I always am skeptical of the photos posted, as people can use angles and filters that make things seem nicer than they are. With this listing, though, the pictures posted are accurate to even selling the place a little short - you just have to see it in person! We spent 3 nights here in June. The cabin doesn't have heat, which we did not think would be a problem. Turned out the nighttime temperatures were dipping into the 40's, which made it a bit chilly. We just bundled up and went with it! It was still fun. We spent our days hiking and exploring Acadia and basically just slept in the cabin, fixing a couple of meals there, too. The kitchen is small, but it's quite functional and well-stocked. The decor throughout the cabin is sometimes over-the-top, but it makes it feel more like a home. With the rain, we did not get to use the deck, but it is large and has plenty of seating.

I highly recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to explore Acadia or just chill in the woods for a few days. Great place!

Can't wait to stay here again...for the 5th time!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at this cabin four years in a row, and we love it more every time. As others have noted, the owner has stocked it with pretty much anything you could ever need. We especially love the peaceful and beautiful views, huge porch great for bbq-ing, the fire pit at night-- and Sunset Point at the top of the little mountain the cottage is on, where you can see some seriously stunning sunsets. This is an authentic log cabin so yes, it's old and rustic, but it's very well taken care of. We love escaping the city and chilling out here, cooking lobsters, bbq-ing, relaxing and reading and getting out and enjoying all that Maine has to offer. But it's especially nice to have a cozy, unique place like this to return to and just hang out at and enjoy the nature around us if we don't feel like getting in a car. Thank you Jim and Dottie for sharing this gem of a place and we can't wait to come back next summer!

Cozy and Cared for Local Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My mom, nephew, 2 pups and I stayed in the cabin for a local wedding. The cabin is large, has an awesome view and is clearly cared for. It was well equipped with everything one would need. Plus, we were left a welcome basket. The owner was easy to contact and helpful. It was definitely cold b/c there is no central heat and we visited during mid-October in Maine! However, there were PLENTY of blankets and wood to build a fire. We would happily stay in this cabin again!

Great location but cabin shows its age

  • 2 of 5

This cabin has a great location for visiting Acadia and surrounding areas. As described, it is very rustic. We found the cabin to be very dark, there is no prep space in the kitchen. All the flat surfaces are full of stuff, which leaves no room for the renter's items. We found the furniture and beds to be worn and uncomfortable. A little too rustic for us.
