The Riverhouse - an all season rental is a small shingled cottage located along the Penobscot River. Completely renovated in 1987, the cottage affords our guests views of the river and bay. A walk through fields and adjoining shore path leads you to a secluded beach where you can fish, sunbathe, swim or walk for miles. Located along Maine's mid coast region, it provides a perfect 'place of port' for day excursions. The many antiques shops and fine restaurants in the neighboring towns provide the visitor with many avenues of enjoyment. Or, you may choose to relax, read or just take a nap in the afternoon sun on the deck surrounded by abundant rose bushes. Whatever your choice, your visit to this property will assuredly be a memborable one. The Riverhouse caters to those visitors who are accustomed to the conveniences of today's requirements in an atmosphere of comfort and grace.
Whether you arrive by motorcar, helicopter, seaplane, or motorlaunch, the Riverhouse will afford you the simple elegance that New Englanders have come to expect.

About Dan Brooks
I am originally from Orland (two houses away) and am now living back in Orland in my ancestral property. I am now retired from the corporate world and spend my time working on the property, as well as my Bangor home.
Dan Brooks purchased this Cottage in 1981
Why Dan Brooks chose Orland
I grew up 2 houses away and delivered papers to the owners as a kid. When the property became available, I knew I wanted it! Since the house needed 'everything', I decided to gut it to the shell and start over -- thus the pics display the finished product.

Awesome Place !
This house belonged to my grandmother many years ago and has been totally renovated. The area is beautiful and brought back many memories. The owner was very helpful and pleasant. Looking forward to going again !
We loved being a little bit removed from the rat race. Very relaxing.

Quiet & quaint!
This quiet & quaint locale was perfect for visiting Maine attractions by car. We enjoyed lovely drives, delicious lobster & gorgeous coastline daily, plus amazing Acadia National Park. The Riverhouse has stairs with two bedrooms up and the bathroom down. Owner Dan is pleasant & helpful.
Nice Water Views from the deck
We stayed at the Riverhouse over Thanksgiving and enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of the area.
Dan is very accomodating and was quick to respond to any of our emails and requests.
The cottage is clean and nicely decorated and has very reliable internet which was very important as this was a working getaway for us.
We enjoyed exploring and sightseeing along the Maine Coast and stopped into Youngs for a delicious lobster roll while we were there.
Nice relaxing experience.
The Riverhouse in Orland, Maine
Great stay, the house is charming, it's small but has everything you need! Great location for sightseeing, it's not so far off the main highways to add too much travel time, Castine is lovely, close to Bar Harbor and Acadia. We loved it, would definitely return! Dan is a gracious host and a font of knowledge on the area.
"Near the artistic communities of Belfast, Blue Hill, Camden and Deer Isle, as well as many antiquing opportunities."
