We just stayed a week in a three bedroom cabin at the resort and loved it. The location is great for easy access to Camden, Belfast, and Acadia. Cabin was bright and cheery and rooms were very nice size. (lots of closet space). We used the bowling alley one night and ate at the Copper Pine Cafe. (Food was good).
We about had the place to ourselves which was nice as we took lots of walks with the kids. Grounds are beautiful and we loved the cabin. Never saw the staff, but the kept the cabin clean and stocked with towels, etc. This a real hidden gem and is reasonably priced. I'm sure that "in season" it is much busier than when we were there.
Do make sure to go to the top of the mountain on a clear day as the view is great. We'll be back for sure

My family stayed at Point Lookout over the Christmas Break and had a wonderful time! The views are unmatched from the top of the mountain and the facilities are new with many opportunities to rest or get tired - we chose the second option.

We arrived in our three-bedroom cabin to the warmth of a gas fireplace that was on anticipating our arrival - nice touch. It was in the single digits outside and the cabin was plenty warm and comfortable. The cottage was very clean and had all the necessary items for us to enjoy - the wireless modem in the cottage made connecting easy. The linens and bed coverings were Ralph Lauren and the mattresses were wonderful.

As soon as the bags were uppacked, we ran out to the Fitness Center to play Wii, virtual golf, basketball in the regulation gym and followed it up in the bowling alley - all very new and state of the art. We made sure we utilized all that we could then went back to the cottage, made dinner in the full kitchen and all crashed hard.

The next morning we had to leave early, but we did have time to enjoy the HUGE fitness center.

Upon arriving home, one of the children realized that their favorite stuffed animal was missing - after contacting Point Lookout - they prompty found the bear hiding in the the sheets and sent it back the next day - saved me sleepless nights!

We look forward to going back in the summer when we can enjoy all the hiking trails and other outside activities that are offered.

This is the second time we have stayed here and it is wonderful. The cabins have an unassuming outside decor but are incredible inside. We could not have been happier. The location is wonderful with lots to do at the resort. We took time to explore Camden and Rockland which are both short drives. The nice thing about the resort is the quiet tranquility that you experience when you are there.

I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from the day to day and just relax and not have to worry about anything. It is that type of place.

Can't wait to go back.

We stayed here one night after attending a dinner at the resort.
The cabin was OK, with rather drab dark brown and dark green decor. No views from any of the cabins that I could see.
Bedrooms were quite small - only large enough for the bed, one night stand and a chest of drawers.
Bathroom and kitchen were fine. No "extras" in the kitchen such as a can opener or bottle opener.
The walks are pleasant and well marked, but quite short - about half a mile each. No views from them.
The "Summit" restaurant does have a magnificent view of the ocean and dozens of islands.
Tennis courts and a swimming pool would be good additions
If you came here expecting an oceanside resort with ocean views from your cabin you would be disappointed. The resort is on a hill about 2 miles inland.

Thank you for your review of our resort. I am sorry that it did not meet you expectations and wanted to clarify a couple misconceptions. While you are correct we are not located on the ocean we do own sandy beach access and the ocean front Penobscot Park with is located directly across route 1 from the resort. While we do not have a pool we do however have two tennis courts located adjacent to the fitness facility as well as racquetball and squash courts located in the fitness facility. If you are in the area again visiting and would like to use the resort amenities please don't hesitate to ask.

Three colleagues stayed in a 3-bedroom cabin. We each had our own bedroom - two with kings, one queen. The two downstairs bedrooms shared a bath, the upstairs king room had a private bath. Both baths had step-in showers.
We had a full kitchen with full-sized fridge and a dining area that would seat 6. The living room chairs were leather and comfy. The gas fireplace was a nice touch. I wish it had been warmer during our stay, as the screened-in porch looked like a great place to sit and relax. We enjoyed the free wi-fi.
The cabin was immaculate. I would definitely stay here again.
The conference facilities were excellent and varied. Several sessions required use of the internet, which slowed down at inopportune times, but that would not always be the case. We attended two catered events here. Both times the food was great. I think this would be a beautiful facility for a wedding.

We recently stayed in a one bedroom cabin to attend a wedding at Point Lookout. It was a shame that we left our exercise gear at home... there are miles of beautiful hiking/walking/jogging trails, soccer fields, softball fields, bowling, etc. Each cabin is self contained with a small kitchenette and is not glamorous but clean, modern and more than adequate. Every cabin has its own wireless highspeed network so it's possible to be "away from it all" in a woodsy cabin and also keep up to date technologically while away - what a great combo.

The conference facilities are incredible. The Summit at the top of the hill has unbeatable views from indoors and outdoors. We also attended a few events at Penobscot Pavillion and Erickson Hall -- all are top-rate facilities that can host events from formal to casual. What an amazing property this resort is, and how fortunate we all are that MBNA decided to sell it so the general public can enjoy it.

Stayed here for 2 nights in a two-bedroom cabin for a wedding that was also taking place on the property.

We were really impressed at how new everything in the cabin was. Bathroom and kitchen had all new applicances and were very well-kept. It was really nice to be able to have our own kitchen especially the mini fridge. There was supposedly free wi-fi in every cabin but it was not working in ours. Bedrooms were incredibly small--basically just room for a bed--but we didn't mind as we spent most of the time in the living room area and porch.

Property was really nice, especially the Summit building which was where the wedding ceremony was held. No pool which would have been a nice addition. The on-site cafe was great and really reasonabley priced; they even did free food delivery to the cabins.

Great value and definitely would return again. Really a fun place for groups and events like weddings and reunions.
