CHARMING RUSTIC COTTAGES ON PENOBSCOT BAY

Brooksville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Accommodations: Two cottages joined by a deck share one-plus kitchens, good recreation space, two–plus bedrooms and 1.5 baths.

Awake to the calls of loons and sea birds from these charming cottages on the shore of Brooksville’s beautiful Smith Cove, directly across from Castine Harbor. Larger cottage contains a cathedral–ceilinged great room, fireplace, full kitchen, bedroom and bath; smaller cottage contains additional communal living space, kitchenette, a bedroom, a new half bath in 2012, a sleeping loft and a porch for reading, dreaming and watching the sunset.

Just 60 feet from the cottages is a private wooden dock for kayaks, boating and swimming. Smith Cove and the Bagaduce River are a kayaker’s dream for viewing wildlife and exploring inlets. Almost an island, the bucolic town of Brooksville boasts 53 miles of coastline to be further explored by canoe or kayak, or from trails set aside on public land trusts.

Within Booksville is Holbrook Island Sanctuary for beachcombing and picnicking, some of the region’s best farmers’ markets, the Good Life Center (former home of the late Scott and Helen Nearing), and Buck’s Harbor for community gathering and activity. Historic Castine is 30 minutes away by kayak and 45 minutes by car. Picturesque Blue Hill, just 11 miles away, is a hub for shopping, more hiking and cultural activities, such as the famed Kneisel Hall summer concert series. Deer Isle, with its many galleries, as well as its rugged, working waterfront, lies to the south east across the Deer Isle Bridge. Spectacular Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor can be reached in just over an hour.

These lovely cottages are ideal for adults or families with children over eight years, as the rocky coastline can be dangerous for small children.

My husband has been summering in Brooksville since birth; I'm a relative newcomer with only 45 summers to my credit. We bought our current property 24 years ago and have spent all or a portion of each summer and fall in a nearby house up the road. We love every activity associated with summers in Brooksville, including afternoons of reading when the fog settles in. Former business professionals, we are now retired and looking forward to sharing Smith Cove with others who yearn to experience coastal Maine's transformational beauty.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1990

Family ties and overwhelming beauty of region.

Kayaking before breakfast, walking the shore at low tide, enjoying a glass of wine on the porch while watching the setting sun. The property is a haven for those seeking to escape 24/7 messaging and deal making.

AS BEAUTIFUL AS STAYING IN THE NATIONAL PARK

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Grace's cottage in Sept 2013, and had a wonderful time. The cottage is so close to so much, but on the other hand, why go anywhere when the view at the cottage is as spectacular as any in the National Park. Her dock is overlooking the beautiful bay, with the mountains in the backdrop - a million dollar view that you can spend the entire meditating over. If you do want to go to Acadia park (our reason for being in the area), it is a very easy drive, and once there, the Rangers have so many programs to keep you amazed. And if you want to stay closer to home, there are many quaint towns, farmer markets, and sights to see. And did i mention the great lobster? The cabin has all you need, and is very clean. We would recommend this cabin to all. We will be back.
