About Dan Brooks

I'm a retired corporate auditor who grew up 2 houses from my rental property so know the region well. Many hours were spent during my 'growing' years on our beach as that was our playground. I, now, am living in my mother's house which is where I grew up.

Dan Brooks purchased this house in 1988

Why Dan Brooks chose Orland

While growing up near my rental property, I delivered the weekly paper the 'Grit'. After many years of decline, the house was eventually passed down to family members living in New Jersey. After they realized that the distance was too great for them to use the property as a weekend retreat, they offered the property to me as my parents owned all the ajoining property to the water. I bought the house and started renovations which took about 1 & 1/2 years to complete.

What makes this house unique

The most unique benefit for visitors would be the private beach where one can sunbath with or w/out clothing, fish, swim or just walk looking for treasures. A short 5 minute walk will get you there. If that is too much of a challenge, try relaxing on the deck overlooking the river.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is a long time since we had such a relaxing long weekend. The superb view over the river, the silence, the birds and your cozy house.....the perfect recipe for relaxation! The kids had a great time too, playing in the grass or improvising wooden toy boats by the river. Thank you also for your advice about Castine. This is a lovely place. Thank you for everything!

We have stayed at the Riverhouse many times since first discovery. The accommodations are charming; better yet, the host is a delight! We now feel more like family than friends. The location allows for travel to Acadia, Camden, Deer Isle and all the "hidden gems" of the Penobscot region. Can't imagine life without The Riverhouse anymore! Peace to all who enter...S&S

Excellent last minute getaway stay

  • 5 of 5
We booked last minute and Dan was extremely accommodating. The cottage is great and the view is an all day treat. In the early morning, watch the for the hawk. The location is perfect as a base to explore Down East Maine and the inlets. We had a lobster marathon. We would definitely consider returning for fall foliage next year. Thanks Dan!

WONDERFUL RIVERHOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I stayed at the Riverhouse and was so comfortable there. The house is clean and charming and feels really homey. The Owner (Dan) was so inviting and made us feel welcomed. We would definitely stay there again. The view from the deck is remarkable and Maine is a beautiful state and hopefully some day be able to make it back there.
We sure was busy visiting the towns around us and went whale watching. What an experience that was and we saw the whales!
I would recommend staying at the Riverhouse!
We Loved it!

The Riverhouse is located in the very versatile 'Mid-Coast' region of Maine. Because of the large influx of summer visitors, many amenities usually uncommon in this small area are now available. A must-see area within our region is Acadia National Park which is located less than an hour away. The property's private beach or public beaches dot the many lakes in the region which provide for swimming, fishing and boating. In addition, many antique shops provide hours of shopping availability.
