About the Property
2 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps a family of 4 - Prices are based on 4
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.

- Vacation Rental
- Guests Provide Their Own Meals
- Wheelchair Inaccessible
Bedrooms: 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4, Beds for 4
Bathrooms: 1 Bathroom
- 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

About the owner: I was born in Idaho, raised in Maryland went to college in Utah, and my husband and I moved to Maine in 1981. I am currently a full-time teacher, a mother of 3 grown sons, and a grandmother to 6 children. We currently live on Little Deer Isle, about 5 minutes from the rental house.
Why the Owner Chose Brooksville, ME, USA:
My husband built this house around 2000. We had lived near fresh water in other parts of the state, and though we are now on the ocean, we wanted a place to go swimming and fishing in fresh water. My husband is an artist at heart, and he designed and built the house with attention to every detail. He and his crew cleared the land, put in the driveway, and built the house. He personally did most of the stonework around the fireplace. The granite countertops, custom built cabinets, etc., are a source of great pride to him. Everyone that enters is pleased at the aesthetic nature of the building.
