A coastal parcel offering residential, agricultural and forestland opportunities, with nearly a mile of oceanfront on Cobscook Bay in scenic Downeast Maine. The property is nearly adjacent to our other Seaside View listing - Cannon Hill Forest.
Lincoln Cove is located in Perry, Maine, a small coastal town in the Downeast Region. The border of New Brunswick, Canada is minutes away. US Route 1 serves as the major thoroughfare, threading between small villages where forestry, blueberry cultivation, and shellfishing remain major employers in the area.
The property is about five miles north of the small city of Eastport (population 1,331), the easternmost city in the United States. Machias, a small but busy harbor town located on Route 1, is about 30 miles away. Portland is about three hours to the southwest. Bangor is roughly two hours west on Route 9. Both Portland and Bangor have international airports. Boston, Massachusetts is about a four-hour drive beyond Portland via I-95.
Lincoln Cove Forest has approximately 1,300' of frontage on Cannon Hill Road, a paved town road with power that runs south from coastal Route 1. The property also has a legally deeded right-of-way along Lincoln Cove Road (including 600’ of frontage), which is a gravel private road.
Lincoln Cove offers nearly a mile of scenic frontage on Cobscook Bay, including sheltered Lincoln Cove. The parcel’s moderate rise in elevation affords expansive views of Cobscook Bay. There are numerous sites within the property that provide 180+-degree views of the ocean and surrounding landscape.
The property has well-drained soils with forests comprised of a mix of red spruce, balsam fir and white pine, some of which has been unmanaged for over 25 years.
