Property type cottage

About the property

Duck Cove Cottage - If relaxation, peace and quiet are part of the agenda, Duck Cove Cottage may help achieve that goal. This 14 year old, 1 bedroom carriage house can be ideal for the couple that wants a base to explore Down East, tour Acadia, attend the Wooden Boat School, or just sit in the chairs by tranquil, tidal Herrick Bay for your time here. The bird life on the bay, an occasional eagle soaring by or the red squirrels dashing through the trees are your closest neighbors. Besides a spacious living area it has a fully equipped kitchen, king bed in the bedroom, sleeper sofa in the living area, walk in closet, 1 bath, 2 dressing areas, and washer- dryer utility area in the 850 sq feet. The deck overlooks the bay and offers a very tranquil atmosphere situated on 4 peaceful acres. Our residence is adjacent to the carriage house but will be vacant unless you have been made previously aware since we value your vacation time.

Charcoal grill and lobster cooking pots are in the garage on the ground level. We anticipate your slogan will be like ours after your vacation here-- 'Time spent in Maine is not wasted'.

Duck Cove Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week in this secluded, cozy retreat. It was everything that we had hoped it would be and even more! The beautiful, restful setting was perfect for days of exploring the surrounding area, hiking, and just relaxing in the quiet environment. We are anxious to return again, perhaps a little earlier in the year to enjoy warmer, summertime activities, like kayaking. Gary and Debi have created a wonderful, relaxing environment with all the comforts of home!

Duck Cove Cottage is a charming and immaculate little house perfectly appointed for a relaxing visit to the Brooklin area. Communication with Gary was prompt and friendly. We could not have asked for anything more.

A well-appointed cottage in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at Duck Cove Cottage, and it was even better than we remembered. The property is right on the water and nicely landscaped, and the carriage house is well equipped and spotless. Duck Cove Cottage was the ideal location for us; quiet and away from it all, but also close to Acadia National Park, shopping, and bike trails. The owners, Gary and Debi promptly returned phone calls and emails, and supplied directions and information about the home, property, and the local area. They were a pleasure to talk to and we are so happy they shared their home with us for a week.

Duck Cove Cottage, a gem on the Maine coast

  • 5 of 5

Your anticipation builds as you drive down a long twisting lane through the woods and start to wonder what you will find at the end. And then before you is an architecturally sophisticated cottage and main house. A real surprise for Maine.

The best part is still to come. Go up the stairs and before you is a view of the lawn and the waterfront tree line giving just enough of a view of the bay beyond.

The cottage accommodations too are a pleasant surprise. Comfortable, tasteful décor, an excellent working kitchen, and all the entertainment facilities you will need. The wifi system has the fastest internet connection we have experienced.

All in all, a lovely place to stay.

Idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this superb cottage. It is beautifully decorated and both cottage and grounds are very well maintained. This peaceful romantic location has beautiful views and lots of comfortable places to relax.

The kitchen is equipped with every gadget you could possibly imagine. The owners Gary and Debi have a wealth of local information that they are happy to share.

If you feel like exploring the area it is full of little inlets, beaches, harbors and small towns. Our longest trip was to Bar Harbor which took about an hour - well worth the trip and the views from Acadia park were breathtaking.

Gary and Debi have thought of everything to make this an extra special place. We cannot thank them enough for sharing their cottage. If you are lucky enough to spend a week or two here relax and enjoy every minute!

Secluded and charming location

  • 5 of 5

Let us begin with a special thanks to Gary, the owner. He made our reservation very simple and shared a wealth of information that would be helpful for anyone visiting this special retreat home. The property is not only relaxing but beautiful. There are so many sitting areas to enjoy the outdoors and beautiful views. It was very obvious all the special touches such as, the place setting for 2 at the window and the special jar of jam accompanied by a card. Very charming. Maine should be cherished by all! God willing, we would love to visit again. Thanks Gary.& Debi
