Enjoy a peaceful and relaxing vacation on a 100 acre working salt-water farm in Down
East, Maine. While sitting on the deck of the cottage you will be surrounded by a harbor view, a tidal brook, hay fields, gardens, birds and the sounds of nature. Take a walk in the woods out back or
up nearby John B Mountain. You will also enjoy fresh eggs and access to the vegetable gardens. Kayaks and canoes have easy access to Orcutt's Harbor.
The island-like geography of Brooksville provides an off the beaten path feel while at the same time offering a wide variety of easy day trips to places like Holbrook Island Sanctuary, Blue Hill, Deer Isle – Stonington, Isle au Haut, and historic Castine. Mount Desert Island is just over an hour away where you can enjoy Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor.
Our guests have included families with young children, honeymooners, retired couples, sailors needing some “land time”, young adults seeking a farm experience and people who grew up here looking to reconnect. Regardless of age or purpose, they all seem to enjoy their stay and often return. Similarly, we enjoy having guests in the cottage and will help in any way we can to make your visit memorable.
