75 FEET FROM THE SHORE, SPECTACULAR OCEAN VIEWS, BEACH, WILDFLOWER MEADOW
Sip your morning coffee on the spacious oceanfront deck while watching the sun rise over the mountains of Acadia and Blue Hill Bay. Listen to the sound of the waves and shorebirds as you watch lobstermen check their traps in the bay in front of the cottage. Explore the secluded, rocky beach and look for sea glass and shells. Enjoy an evening cocktail and watch the moon rise over the Blue Hill Bay Lighthouse. Count the stars in the Milky Way and bask in utter peace and contentment.
‘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, lobster fishermen, 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.

Our family first vacationed in "Down East" Maine 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. 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."
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Owner chose Brooklin
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.
What makes this Cottage unique
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.

What a View !!!
My husband and I stayed at Sea Meadow the second week of Sept. What a wonderful time of year to visit the
the Maine coast....warm days and cooler nights. It was so peaceful and relaxing sitting on the deck enjoying the
view or walking the shoreline at low tide. We explored the surrounding area and ate fantastic seafood. The
cottage was perfect...very clean...and supplied with all the comforts of home. We hope to return next year.
Thank you very much. I'm so glad that you and your husband enjoyed your stay at "Sea Meadow." I think that late summer in Brooklin is a special time, too. I hope that you return again soon.
Perfect Maine Cottage... really!
My husband and I stayed at Sea Meadow and were very happy with everything! You are right on the water and the 180 degree views of the bay, lighthouse and Cadillac Mountain are incredible. The cottage was beautiful, clean and very well cared for. We had wonderful meals at a few of the local restaurants. It is very convenient to the Wooden Boat School and a great place to stay if you are thinking of taking courses there. We will definitely be back next year!
Thank you for staying at "Sea Meadow." I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that your husband enjoyed his class at the WoodenBoat School. They do a wonderful job. I hope that you return again next year.
Perfect Maine Cottage
I stayed at Sea Meadow with my husband and daughters (6 & 8), and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The cottage is perfect with great attention to detail, and the views of the water are stunning. We loved exploring the beach just steps from the porch and the girls loved collecting treasures (shells and rocks). The decor is lovely and the cottage is very comfortable. We explored Brooklin and the neighboring towns and cannot wait to return. Mary Louise was a pleasure to deal with, provided helpful information about the area, and even called to check on us. We would definitely recommend Sea Meadow to anyone looking in this area for the perfect cottage.
I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed your time in Brooklin. Thank you very much for recommending “Sea Meadow” to others. If your travels bring you back to Maine, I hope that you will stay at “Sea Meadow” again.
We've been vacationing on Penobscot Bay for many years and doubted anything could surpass its beauty until we pulled down the driveway to “Sea Meadow.” Truly, a breath-taking moment! The cottage, inside and out, was also spectacular. The attention to detail and the design of the cottage could not be more perfect. All of the previous reviews are completely accurate without any exaggeration. If you are looking for a great place to relax and enjoy Down East Maine, this is the place.
I think that the Blue Hill Bay area is a wonderful place. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your time here. Thank you for staying at "Sea Meadow" and for your very kind words. I look forward to your return next summer!.
My husband and our two daughters (ages 3 and 5) stayed here for a week in the end of June. We wanted a quiet comfortable spot to relax and explore the Maine Coast and found exactly that. The owners' decor and attention to details for its guests - of all ages - is impeccable.
Our daughters spent every morning looking for sea glass on the beach, just steps away from the cottage. We enjoyed beautiful sunrises on the deck and relaxing and reading on the cozy furniture in the evening.
Brooklin, Maine is a great location for exploring the many Down East towns, it was easy to get to Bar Harbor/Acadia, Deer Isle and Blue Hill from our central location.
We felt incredibly at home and comfortable in the house and look forward to returning in future years.
Thank you! I am very happy that "Sea Meadow" was a comfortable home base from which to explore Down East Maine. I hope that you and your family will return for another visit soon.
