Brooksville cottage description

Lovingly restored, this 1916 bungalow style shingle cottage is comfortably furnished with great seating, new beds and plenty of reading lamps. The fully-equipped kitchen is the perfect place to prepare amazing meals from the local bounty of the freshest seafood and organic produce.

The screened-in wrap-around porch provides beautiful coastal views over the Penobscot Bay. At low tide, a pebble beach is accessible to those who are sure of foot. The beds and bedding are new and there are ample towels and beach towels and a washer / dryer. An on-demand hot water heater provides plenty of hot water and there is an outdoor gas grill.

Holbrook Island Sanctuary and Bakeman beach offer a place for swimming and kayaking. Brooksville has an abundantly provisioned general store with restaurant and the nearby 'big' town of Blue Hill has a wonderful independent book store and many shops and restaurants.

                  Juniper Ledge is located in one of the most scenic spots in coastal Maine. The town of Harborside (part of Brooksville) on Cape Rosier is part of the Blue Hill peninsula. The freshest lobsters are locally available and organic produce is a healthy walk or a short drive away from The Four Seasons Farm.

                  Brooksville has a charming general store with a weekly farmer's market and a small restaurant. Nearby, Holbrook Island Sanctuary has a beautiful beach and a protected cove for kayaking and swimming. There are two town landings for boating.

                  The largest nearby town of Blue Hill boasts an excellent book store, many restaurants and boutiques and a wonderful hospital as well as a great veterinary clinic.

                  An approximate one hour drive toward Mt. Desert Isle and Acadia National Park leads through the county seat, Ellsworth, with many shops and restaurants.

                  At day's end, the spacious wrap-around screened porch provides the spectacle of glorious sunsets and coastal breezes.
