Brooklin cottage description

Duck Cove Cottage - If relaxation, peace and quiet are part of the agenda, Duck Cove Cottage may help achieve that goal. This 9 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. With the bird life on the bay, an occasional eagle soaring by or the red squirrels dashing through the trees round out 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.

                                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!

                                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!

                                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 - Doug & Leslie, Sterling Heights, Michigan

                                My boyfriend and I have been trying different locations in Maine for the past three summers. This home in Brooklin was by far our favorite. This house is truly secluded and the property is beautiful and well manicured. There's a large backyard overlooking a sleepy cove and a hammock to die for. The photos don't do it justice. My boyfriend and I also loved the house itself. It was clean, cozy and equipped with everything we could ever want or need. There were ceiling-to-floor windows and a spacious deck with a view. The town, a short drive away, was also incredibly sweet. There are lots of beautiful bodies of water to explore and lobster at every turn. Gary -- he and his wife own the property -- couldn't have been more helpful and genuine. They're building a much larger house next door, which is just as beautiful and didn't obstruct the view or the cozy/secluded feel of the property. If anything, it added to the ambiance. You must stay here. It's the best!!

                                We had a wonderful stay at Duck Cove Cottage this summer. The cottage is located on a beautifully landscaped property that provides seclusion and boasts a tremendous view of the water. The cottage itself is exquisite; the living room is both elegant and comfortable and the king size bed was the most amazing bed I've ever slept in. The kitchen is also loaded with every cooking accessory you could possibly need! The cottage is within minutes of the town of Brooklin and all of the fun little stores and eateries contained therein. My family has been vacationing in Brooklin for many years and I have never stayed in a rental that was more warm and inviting. Gary and Debi, thank you so much for opening your home to us! We absolutely loved our stay and we cannot wait to come back!

                                We spent an amazing week at Duck Cove Cottage while my husband attended Wooden Boat School in July of 2011. We felt at home the moment we arrived and did not lack for any creature comforts. The decor was lovely and inviting, the kitchen contained an abundance of items you would generally need and then went above and beyond with spices, oils, and extras you would not have thought of. This tranquil & beautiful setting soothed the soul and provided many photo opportunities! Gary came to the rescue when our flight was delayed by contacting our friends for us when we were not able to. Both Gary and Debi were gracious and thoughtful hosts/owners. The community of Brooklin was quite close and Blue Hill was an easy drive away. Whether you were in the area to relax, attend Wooden Boat School, seek adventure or just get away from it all, Duck Cove Cottage would serve you quite well.

                                An extraordinary vacation getaway that immediately felt more like home than a rental cottage. Perfect in every way and down to every last detail (not kidding: even enough hangers for clothes!!), including the really comfortable furnishings, fully equipped kitchen, tranquil & beautiful setting, and unusually gracious and thoughtful owners - all set in a relaxing and friendly community within easy driving range of a multitude of diverse activities to suit every taste. We feel extremely fortunate to have found such an ideal vacation cottage available in this spectacular area of Maine and truly can't imagine there is much out there that would equal the terrific experience we had at Duck Cove Cottage. Thank you, Gary and Debi,for sharing your lovely home, and especially for creating such a warm and cozy environment that so readily feels like home to others.

                                This was the most comfortably furnished vacation home we have ever stayed in. Very tranquil setting and great location for biking and kayaking right out the door or nearby. We enjoyed the quiet solitude of Maine while having easy access to dining, art and music.
