LORDS COVE COTTAGE NESTLED ON THE COAST OF MAINE

Brooksville House Rental Photos and Description

Attractive, Charming, Secluded, 2 bedrooms, clawfoot tub with shower,

The Lords Cove Cottage is nestled among woods, fields and the sea. The beach near us is a mix of sandy beach, rocky beach and mussel beds. (Here there is a free lunch. If you don't know how to prepare mussels, we'll be happy to show you.) From the shore we see loons, herons, and an occasional seal, but rarely another human on our beach.

Five minutes away by car is the lovely village of South Brooksville, home to the world's best little store, offering hearty European breads baked on the spot daily, a fine wine selection, plenty of yummy pastries, and 'The Buck', a delightful cafe. The Tinder Hearth Bakery is a short hike from the cottage. Farmers markets abound. The Stonington Opera House hosts many events - live performances, movies and more. The Steel Drum Band from Brooksville can probably be found playing somewhere nearby. There are many pub and restaurant options in Blue Hill and Castine.

It's also home to Bucks Harbor, gateway to some of the finest sailing on the East Coa

A short hike from the cottage will take you to the shore where you can take long walks at low tide. If you have canoes or kayaks, you can launch at any tide from a beach just 3 minutes away by car. Twenty minutes further takes you to Blue Hill, which has a big grocery store and my favorite Maine art gallery, with a wonderful outdoor sculpture garden. And if your favorite book just fell into the ocean, head for Blue Hill Books, a much nicer experience than shopping on line. Brooksville has a state park - Holbrook Island State Park, and an hour away is Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Beautiful Castine and its Maine Maritime Academy are right across the water from Lords Cove. Just staying home is delightfully peaceful and restful for those seeking a meditative experience. This is a pastoral place.

Boat rental is also available. Other nearby activities include hiking, bicycling, shopping for crafts and antiques, attending artistic shows and performances, and dining on traditional seafood dishes.

Amenities: The cottage is perfect for a couple, but can handle more. Upstairs is cozy and rustic. There are two very comfy double beds. There's a third single bed. With our help the sofa downstairs could be re-positioned and opened into a bed. There are reading lights for the beds. The bathroom has a cute claw-foot tub with a shower. Linens and towels are provided.

The kitchen is well-equipped, with a coffee maker, teakettle, dishes, glasses, wine glasses, basic pots and pans, a strainer, grater, knives, scissors, corkscrew, can opener and, of course, sink, stove, and fridge. You may want to bring a radio, TV and/or cell phone.

A beautiful Vermont castings gas fireplace provides plenty of heat and a lovely atmosphere in the living room.

The bathroom and kitchen were just renovated sparkling new pics of changes available mid- June.very soon.

AMAZING PLACE AND AMAZING HOSPITALITY!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage and property are gorgeous. It's an amazing place even for a family. Gerry and Barbara are fantastic hosts and even gave us a tour around the area, and helped us collect mussels from the cove. The kids enjoyed running around the yard and exploring the rock beach. And of course the fire we made for roasting marshmallows. Lord's Cove cottage is a great place to get away and just be. Highly recommend this cottage!!! Thank you again Gerry and Barbara!

AMAZING GETAWAY ON THE BAGADUCE RIVER

  • 5 of 5
The perfect place for retreat. Just enough room to enjoy yourself and the environment. Well equipped and comfortable. Gerry and Barbara are wonderful hosts. They extend themselves without intruding. We took in farmers markets, TInderhearth breads and pizza (the pizza is a must), hikes and beach time on Cape Rosier, bike rides ilocally and in and around MDI. Local farms offer many fresh to table goods. We stayed a month and didn't have a day without something to do. Deer Isle also has much to offer. If you are looking to get away from it all-this is the place.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is just as pictured...cozy, clean, and a great location. The hosts are extremely helpful and caring. Gerry showed us how to harvest mussels and we ordered fresh lobsters from the neighborhood lobsterman! It doesn't get better than that! I definitely recommend the cottage. It is a fun and relaxing atmosphere...lot to do in the area.

A QUIET, CLEAN AND PEACEFUL PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
This quaint, immaculately clean cottage was exactly what the doctored ordered! My wife and I relaxed, ate at some great local restaurants, steamed mussels from the river, grilled lobsters and corn and took in the small town scenery; it was perfect. Our two dogs ran in the large yard and swam in the river (really just an extension of Penobscot Bay) until they could barely move! The property owners could not have been more kind and helpful. They were genuinely interested in making sure we enjoyed their property and took a lot of pride in conveying the best local spots for just about anything quintessentially Maine. We will be back!
