Property description

Boathouse converted into a private and modern retreat on the Bagaduce, with a shared deep water dock.

The ground floor features two bedrooms (one with a queen bed, the other with two twin beds), a cozy family room, full bath, and laundry room. All beds are outfitted with high thread count sheets, down comforters and cotton quilts.

Upstairs, enter a spacious great room with a wall of windows overlooking the water and a (faux) wood stove. The compact kitchen is fully outfitted with a full size oven, refrigerator, gas stove and microwave. It opens into the living room area with a futon, two midcentury modern chairs and a leather chaise. Windows and fans operated via remote control allow for cooling breezes.

Wake to amazing sunrise views of the water from the full-height loft which features a queen bed and is accessed via a set of ships stairs.

The patio overlooks the Bagaduce River towards Castine. Meander down the hill through lupines to get to the deep water dock.

Things to do:
- Rent canoes or kayaks and paddle from the dock to see the seals.
- Take a 5 minute boat ride to dine at the James Beard award winner Bagaduce Lunch
- Cycle thru beautiful country roads
- Pick raspberries (July) and blackberries (August) on the property
- Take sailing lessons at one of the local yacht clubs which are open to non-members

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We live in northern California, but Tom grew up in Orono, Maine. His accent returns whenever we are Down East.

Why the Owner Chose Brooksville, ME, USA:
We love being able to come here and escape from our every day lives. We turn the screens off and entertain ourselves building fairy houses (see if you can find them), playing board games and searching the tide pools for sea stars.
