Point Lookout has undergone some big changes recently.
Initially, Point Lookout was built as a a corporate retreat for MBNA. It continued to serve that purpose when Athena Health acquired the property. For the first 20 years of its existence, the facilities worked well for this purpose. However, without major corporate infusions of capital, continuing operations were unsustainable.
Fortunately, the facility will not be closing - it will simply be redesigned. We will no longer be offering weddings or large conferences, but the fitness center and many of the cabins remain open for business.
While some portions of the property are no longer accessible to guests, such as the Copper Pine Cafe, bowling alley, and the summit, other portions of the property will continue to be open to public use. These areas include the newly extended trail system, the soccer field, and the new fitness center. The fitness center is moving to the building closer to the cabin complex and will remain free for guest use. In addition, the guests can continue to enjoy the beautiful views from the many trails at the neighboring Camden Hills Sate Park.
There are 39 cabins available as vacation rentals. There are one, two, and three bedroom cabins available for rent. More information under the "cabins" link above. Cabins all have screened-in porches with L.L. Bean adirondack chairs and a private parking spot.
We are excited about the new direction for this beautiful property and are grateful for the continued support and patronage from the community and guests.
"...the cabin is honestly one of the cutest places ever. So comfy and cozy. It's practically soundproof. The little propane stove has kicked on and the honey color of the wood inside is perfect. I don't want to leave."
"The town of Camden is a quick 15 min drive away to cute shops & delicious seafood. I honesty wish our trip had been longer so we could've explored everything."
"We love it and the fitness center is awesome! Everything is very clean... Great place to go, for a little getaway! The cabins are so cozy... Would recommend Point Lookout to anyone, hands down! Will be going back any chance we get, no doubt about it!"
