About the Property
75 FEET FROM THE SHORE, SPECTACULAR OPEN VIEWS, 3 BEDROOMS, 1 BATH, (SLEEPS 4)
‘Sea Meadow’ is a charming, shingle-sided cottage perched 75 feet from the ocean’s edge on the western shore of Blue Hill Bay. It has spectacular open views of the Blue Hill Bay Lighthouse set against the backdrop of Mount Desert Island. The cottage sits on four acres of land and is surrounded by grass and wildflower meadows. A private staircase provides access to the deepwater shorefront and beach with granite boulders. It is only a one hour and 15 minutes drive to Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island.
The living room/dining area walls are covered in antique barn board siding with a beamed ceiling. The den includes an entertainment center that is stocked with board games, puzzles, television with satellite service, DVD player and more than 80 DVDs. There is a large deck that faces the ocean with a dining table and plenty of seating. The kitchen and bathroom were completely remodeled. (The bathroom has a stall shower only.) The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed. The two cozy additional bedrooms each have built-in bunk beds. (Due to the fact that the top bunks do not have railings, guests should only use the lower bunks.)
Brooklin is located on the southeast tip of the Blue Hill Peninsula between Blue Hill Bay and Eggemoggin Reach. It is a beautiful, quiet village that boasts it is 'the boatbuilding capital of the world.' Author E.B. White and his wife Katharine made it their home. Brooklin is the home of many fine boat builders, lobstermen, and the headquarters of WoodenBoat Magazine. People come from around the world to attend boat building or sailing classes at the WoodenBoat School. Brooklin is, quite simply, a very special place.

About the owner: Our family loves to sail. This is a photo of our sailboat, 'Picaro,' on her maiden voyage. We have been hosting guests at "Sea Meadow" Cottage since 2009. We know that your vacation time is priceless. Our goal is to provide you with a vacation rental that is a true "home away from home" during your stay. We invite you to take a look at our Guest Reviews to see testimonials from guests who have stayed at "Sea Meadow" in the past.
Why the Owner Chose Brooklin, ME, USA:
Our family first vacationed in "Down East" Maine in 2000 when our children were very young. Each of us fell in love with the area and we feel fortunate to spend time in this magical place. When this property came on the market, we were captivated by the spectacular open views of the Blue Hill Bay Lighthouse set against the backdrop of the mountains on Mount Desert Island. Whether sailing on Eggemoggin Reach, hiking in Acadia National Park, or sitting on the deck and watching the ever-changing play of light and wind on the water, we each agree that our time in Maine is "the way life should be."
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The proximity of the cottage to the water is wonderful. My favorite thing is to get up in the morning before the rest of the family. The house is quiet and I take a good book and my morning coffee out on the deck. I love looking out at the constantly changing color and pattern of the water and listening to the waves lapping against the shore.
