Brooklin house description

Our family cottage, Keewaydin, was built in 1908, and has been
continuously enjoyed by 5 generations of our family. The architecture,
featuring an open living room facing directly up to the rafters, with a
balcony running along two sides of the second story, was designed by
Washington DC architect Frank Bibb.

In 2004 , a total renovation of the cottage was undertaken with the goal
of not only preserving it for future generations by modernizing the
interior, but restoring the gardens and grounds, including the original
entrance, reconstructed from photographs. In addition to the amenities
we have itemized, the cottage has a double screened in porch where we
often take our meals. Across the road is the only private beach in the
Colony, owned by us and one other family. You can keep your row boat,
kayak, canoe or sailfish tied up there.

The cottage is located in Haven Colony, also known as Center Harbor, the
location of Anne River Siddons' novel 'Colony.' The Center Harbor Yacht
Club, which includes more small boats than yachts, keeps a running
schedule of boating events for young and old alike. The Club's tennis
court is steps from our door. But for those seeking R+R and a respite
from human society, all you need is the house and the beach.

All the glories of Down East Maine are nearby: i mile from Wooden Boat School; Deer Isle 20 miles;
Castine 30 miles; Acadia National Park 60 miles. Our cottage does not
have internet access but the internet is available at the Brooklin
Library, 1 mile from the cottage. The cottage is a retreat in one of the
most glorious places in the world. We offer it for just a few weeks when
it is at its finest.

Full Kitchen, Washer, Dryer, Linens Provided, Wheelchair ramp, Pets OK,
