About Us


We are Jack Marsden and Cate Kennedy Marsden.264

We make no apologies for having no TVs, phones, or modern conveniences in our beautiful rooms (other than Wi-Fi), but we do have a private beach and dock, a mooring, kayaks, and a canoe to paddle at your leisure.  We totally encourage you to wander the house, use the grounds, swim in the clean, cool lake, and sit by the fire pit while roasting marshmallows in the evening.

Curl up and watch TV or read beside the huge stone fireplace in our Great Room (we call it the Log Room) or out in the gazebo — the ‘Summer House’ (a nod to the Bunker Hill pool’s un-walled structure called the ‘Summer House’ back in our hometown), take a walk in the woods, go soak your weary bones in the hot tub, or maybe go to an old fashioned drive-in theater down in Bangor only a little more than half an hour south.  On your way, stop by our friend Barbara’s country store (B&W’s) for a bite to eat with her delightful old fashioned lunch counter, and where she sells homemade everything… but you’ll have full access to our grill, an extra refrigerator to use, and all the kitchen tools needed to put a meal together here if you want to.

Visit the wonderful farmers market in downtown Lincoln during the summer, shop at Mardens year round for incredible and one-of-a-kind deals, or sip yummy coffee at Tim Horton’s outside café.  You can go people-watching up at the Lincoln town gazebo and take photos of the gigantic loon… you can go golfing at two area golf courses in the summer, and cross country skiing there in the winter.  You can also choose downhill skiing or tubing at Mount Jefferson in the nearby town of Lee and rent all your equipment and get an all-day lift ticket for less than an half day lift ticket without rentals elsewhere at bigger mountains, yet still have just as much fun.

We hope you discover us here in Enfield, Maine, and when you do, you’ll see why everyone who comes to visit is transported to a place in time where chaos does not rein and being a happier, more tranquil person begins to take root deep in your soul while you’re our guest at this incredible, beautiful place called Cold Stream Inn.
