This tidy and exceedingly well-maintained cottage is the beloved summer residence of a local family who has enjoyed its views and waterfront for years. Briar Nook brings with it the particulars that make a Maine Coast vacation all that it promises to be: a green lawn running down to the water, warm rocks that slope into the water, a wharf and float with a mooring and just about the most serenely gorgeous views you will find. The cottage itself is a wonderful retreat with an eye to what makes a summer cottage what it is and modern conveniences. The one level floor plan flows nicely with all common living spaces oriented towards the water. At the front of the house is a wonderful deck with a retractable awning for when shade is needed from the sun. There are two bedrooms in the main house and a charming bunkhouse, just 20 feet or so from the main house, provides sleeping space with its own views, electricity and two twin beds.

Bremen is a small coastal town in Lincoln County, Maine. It is located on the eastern side of the Pemaquid Peninsula, facing the Medomak River and Muscongus Bay. Once part of Bristol, it became incorporated on February 19, 1828.
The town has a total area of 27.4 square miles, of which 16.5 square miles is land and 10.9 square miles is water.

Two ponds, Webber and McCurdy, lie entirely within Bremen; two others, Pemaquid and Biscay, form the town's western boundary.
Several large islands lie just offshore in the Medomak River and Muscongus Bay, including Bremen Long Island and Hog Island, home of the nationally-known Audubon Camp and Todd Wildlife Sanctuary.
