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!
