The Cottage at Clay Forms Pottery is tucked away a mile off the main road on the shores of the Bagaduce River, a pristine tidal estuary fed by the fresh waters of Walker Pond in Brooksville and the salt waters at the mouth of the Penobscot Bay at Castine. The Cottage is a hand crafted, year round insulated and heated one loft bedroom, one bath guest house with a full kitchen. It is an artfully decorated hideaway built on eight acres of spruce and pine woods on the property of Clay Forms Pottery where its proprietors Richard and Melody reside in the main house. A screened-in porch for outdoor dining and relaxation has just been completed.
Located on the Blue Hill Peninsula, the Bagaduce River is a precious gem. It is the home to bald eagles, osprey, kingfishers, blue herons, horseshoe crabs, striped bass, alewives, otters, minks, and an occasional seal. It's a gorgeous spot for easy kayaking (bring water shoes) or just laying on a hammock by the shore with a good book.
There are many lovely walks and bike rides nearby as well as throughout the Blue Hill Peninsula. We particularly love to walk a boreal fog forest at The Nature Conservancy’s Barred Island Trail on Deer Isle or climb Blue Hill Mountain to view the vistas of Blue Hill Bay and the mountains of Acadia National Park. We also love visiting the beautiful fishing village of Stonington to have a lobster at one of the many restaurants or to take a few home to steam while experiencing a Bagaduce sunset like never before.
