Summer Cottage In Exquisite Coastal Maine Spot

Bedrooms 4
Space 1,250 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

4 bed, 1 bath, Sleeps 8

The Boulders was originally part of a well-known Maine summer resort. Back in the 19th century wealthy people in New York and Boston would throng, by steamship, to the cool, clean restful Maine coast for the summer. They called it rusticating. The Lookout Inn was a resort built for rusticators, and over the years has expanded to include a number of cottages – including the Boulders.

The resort is as popular today as it has always been. At the end of a quiet peninsula, it has a quintessentially Maine feeling. A long rocky, but walk-able beach surrounds a large open field. Views in every direction are spectacular. The ocean water of Jericho Bay surrounds the peninsula and is dotted with islands. One is even close enough to walk to at low tide!

You will have night skies with more stars than you can imagine, exquisite walking trails, pristine ocean water, and lots of local attractions.

Old-fashioned charm abounds. The Inn serves an elegant dinner just a short walk away. Or stay at home and make your own feast. The kitchen in the Boulders is well-equipped (including a lobster steamer), and there is a barbeque on the deck for grilling local fish.

It is a perfect place to relax and get back in touch with your life, your soul, and your family and friends. The cottage sleeps 8 so bring those you love to share the experience.

About Kate Sullivan

I spent my summers on Flye Point and it was the best place as a kid to spend time. Ocean swimming, tide pools, beach combing, wild flower and berry picking and fire fly chasing. No TV and no phone and never bored. Little has changed on Flye Point since then!

We felt fortunate to experience the pristine cosst of Maine in such a sweet cottage and setting.

  • 5 of 5

We found the cottage to be very charming and well equipped. Beds were comfortable with nice linens. Kitchen was well equipped. There was no microwave that I remember. We were comfortable. The setting is what we expected from the description. We enjoyed beautiful weather. It would be nice to enjoy again. I wish there had been a short set of steps from the path down to the water’s edge to the beach boulders. We painted, walked out to Flye Island, checked out the hotel but did not experience the dining. Wifi was available. All in all we had a lovely week.

Beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family or five plus our dog had a lovely time. The rustic (very clean) cabin was a perfect fit for our needs during our time in Brooklin. The access to the water was such a treat. Blue Hill was a fun spot and a short drive away.

Picking up the precooked lobsters at The Lobster Crate down the road made dinner easy and delicious!

We went to The Lookout restaurant on the premises (50 feet from the house). Food was decent but very expensive. Long wait for it as well. Wait staff was not that friendly.

Overall and amazing time was had!

Heard several times...”Favorite vacation ever!”

  • 5 of 5

Quaint cottage that was clean and had everything you could possibly need. Beds were comfortable and there were plenty of fans or heaters if needed. We did not venture out often as we wanted to just enjoy the ocean and bought crabs and fish locally and cooked most meals at the cottage. Went down during all tides to enjoy the water, beachcombing, soaking up the heat on the large rocks. Our only disappointment was not with the house but the tics in the area. Didn’t know they were so bad this far north. Tics on us and the dog Every Time we went outside. We also made the mistake of trying to walk out to one of the islands during low tide our first day and the barnacles tore up our poor dogs feet (he had a great time though). Between the tics and our dogs feet, We unfortunately decided to not go hiking to Acadia. We loved our stay and plan to come back but with kyaks and neoprene booties for the dog next time. Thank you again for sharing your lovely home with us. We loved the decorating style of this cottage as well.

Four Nights at Flye Point

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is a perfect place for a Maine get away. I was by myself so I can attest that one bed was very comfortable (did not try the others) all I needed for kitchen equipment was available, the cabin was clean and spacious with four bedrooms and a bathroom with a

hot shower. The site is beautiful with 270 degree views of the ocean on a wide open point at the end of a road. Wi-Fi is available at the Flye Point Inn just across the road. I unreservedly recommend the cabin.
