Owner info

Year Purchased: 1960

About the owner: This is a family homestead. My parents bought the place in 1960 and came here with us 6 kids for summers while we were growing up. Father was a Dartmouth professor, who later became very interested in the history of the Maine islands and, with our mother, wrote 4 volumes of history, "Islands of the Mid-Maine Coast". This small cottage was built in the 80s to provide room for overflow.

Why the Owner Chose Brooklin, ME, USA:
The original homestead on this property was owned at one point by Florence Kelly, an early social reformer and advocate for women's rights, a fact that greatly intrigued my family. Sailing and cruising were a big part of family life. The cove provides excellent protected anchorage. The property was purchased by three families. These families still own the beach cove in common. Until two years ago, the families also owned Big Babson Island, just southwest of Kelly Cove. This property is now owned by the Maine Coast Heritage Trust and is forever wild.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This area of Maine is well off the Route 1 'beaten track' and enjoys a calmer, quieter feel than many Maine coastal areas. Wooden Boat, known for boat building classes and for the Wooden Boat Magazine is right 'next door', so to speak, and boats visiting Wooden Boat anchor directly in front of Kelly Cove. The boats that visit Wooden Boat are generally known for their beauty and style. Maine schooners regularly anchor here. Babson Island, a Maine Coast Heritage 'forever wild' island is the closest island to Kelly Cove. It has a spectacular picnic beach on east side, and rocky coast on the west side. Several other nearby islands welcome daytime visitors or have camp sites associated with the Maine Island Trail. Kayak rentals are available out of Blue Hill, and can be delivered to the property. The village of Brooklin, with general store, post office, and library (and sometimes a cafe) is three miles from the property. Wifi is not available here in the cottage, but is available at the town library. There are fields associated with this property that provide possibilities for kids to run around playing informal games like baseball and soccer.
