Brooksville house description

Beautiful, private, two bedroom cottage overlooking Walker Pond in Brooksville. Custom kitchen, living room with fireplace, bath with jetted tub and deck. Family room DVD and VCR viewing systems (viewed on TV, But no TV reception), and Foosball table. Perfect for a romantic getaway or a family vacation. Not recommended for small children or persons who have difficulty with stairs. Canoe and kayak are available to borrow (life jackets also). Use of the beach is permitted by owners of the beach as long as we all keep it uncluttered and in its natural condition.


Walker Pond: Walker Pond is touted to be the third cleanest body of water in Maine. There are several species of fish including bass and trout. The water is up to four feet deep for approximately 100 ft. out. It reaches depths of 40 feet. The kayak that is available is made of heavy plastic. It is unsinkable and does not flip. It is perfect for the novice. The 16' canoe is perfect for two, three, or even four (two adults and two small children). Life jackets are provided or you may bring your own.

There is nothing more relaxing than listening to the loons in the evening, or watching a bald eagle soar over the lake.

Things to Do: Many of our guests enjoy just staying at the 'pond.' However, for those who like to venture out, there are many areas to hike, bike or drive. The public beach after the causeway from Little Deer Isle to Deer Isle is only a five minute drive. Deer Isle is a wonderful island full of the 'real' Maine. There are many artists and artisans with galleries out of their own homes, grocery stores, quaint shops, and Stonington, at the far end of the island is a working fishing village. The views are spectacular as you drive or bike ride and it is far less crowded than the Bar Harbor region.

Bar Harbor is about an hour drive away.

          Other Amenities

              • There is NO TV reception. The set is for use with DVD or VCR only. This home is suitable for most people, except small children (under 5) or people who have difficulty with stairs. The entrance is through the daylight basement which is tile over concrete, and the staircase is open. I have had at least 100 people over the last 4 years with no difficulties, but if you have any concerns, this is not the rental for you. As a general rule, I prefer you leave your pets home; however, there have been instances where a larger deposit has been paid in order to have dogs in the house, so if you or a family member has a severe allergic reaction to dogs this is not the rental for you....moreless
