How to Get There
From the photos on the site where I booked this, it appeared to be a waterfront resort, or at least, water view, across the street from the actual waterfront. It's not. It's buried in the woods; our cabin had no view except trees and the cabin next door to it. It has a very Adirondacks-camp feel to it. We did not use any of the community amenities since we were only there for one night. Cabin was clean and had a nice open layout, wifi was good. Price was relatively steep for this, though, and we probably wouldn't return here.
Mary at the front desk saved the day when we arrived on the wrong day by accident (we booked the wrong days). Despite three weddings that weekend, she managed to rebook our family into two great cabins. The setting was serene and the cabins and restaurant were clean and well cared for.
As a couple exploring midcoastal Maine, we were wary of Point Lookout's marketing pitch as a destination resort eight miles south of Belfast for weddings, reunions and corporate retreats. It seemed too programmed, too stiff, too self-consciously honed and landscaped over more than a hundred-some trail-laced acres, on up to a summit bulldozed off a mountaintop to open rapturous views across the islands of Maine's Penobscot Bay.
The head of a billionaire banking colossus built Point Lookout in the nineteen-nineties as a refuge, with squash courts, bowling alleys, an immense fitness center and 106 cabins--not mere hotel rooms--with up to three bedrooms as a refuge for his more than 10,000 employees. He lost it all in the crash of 2008. Point Lookout seemed destined to fail, too. But private investors intervened and to all appearances, it is off and running again.
As we drove to the main building a Saturday afternoon, the clerks were registering guests for a wedding at the summit, but the resort is so vast that from the Adirondack chairs on the screened porch of our Cabin No. 1, we felt that for our $257 for each two nights, we hardly came upon any of them. We owned the place.
Besides the porch, we had just one room, but a large one, from floor to ceiling layered with knotty pine and fully equipped, if with just a microwave in the kitchen space and, oddly, just three glasses for drinks, The heating and air conditioning worked well enough, but we relied mostly on our windows, all of which worked. The Wi-Fi connected instantly without a password, and the TV, did, once we mastered the remote, We had storage space enough for twice our luggage, two large leather easy chairs, and chairs and an expandable table for dining. Dining was a bit of a concern. Point Lookout has a large central cafe where it serves a respectable breakfast and lunch--but no dinner. No room service either. But the resort is just three or four miles from Lincolnville Beach and restaurants, all of which serve lobster like Texas serves oil.
A housekeeper shows up only every other day, disconcerting for guests accustomed to beds being made, the trash collected and the towels picked up or replaced. Still, the resort's sylvan site, the cabin's decor and amenities and the serenity of the setting persuade us to return anytime.
