Recent Brooklin reviews

  • Great stay on MDI

    "We recently stayed at this wonderful home. The previous reviews did a nice job of capturing the benefits/features of this home so I will hit just a few highlights. Found Southwest Harbor to be very quaint and nice break from Bar Harbor. Good jumping off point to all points on the island. There are a handful of restaurants in town (we enjoyed Eat-a-Pita ... it is much more than pitas). There is a nice wine shop with a wide selection of wine and cheeses. Fire pit in back. Nice way to relax after a full day ... plenty of firewood on hand. Family room very comfy with leather couch and chairs, fireplace, large TV. There is a grocery store in town but if you plan on doing a lot of cooking we recommend that you try Hannaford's in Bar Harbor. Suzanne was great. Easily accessible by phone or email. We would definitely stay here again should we return to the area."

  • Amazing!

    "This was a surprise trip for my husband's birthday and he rated it up there with our honeymoon to St Lucia!! I have not been to Maine since I was a kid, so I was not at all familiar with the area. I chose this spot because it was close enough to the activity, yet far enough away. I'm so happy I went with my gut. Dick and Ivy have a gem of a property. They were incredible hosts. Thank you for the muffins and the tips. (Schoodic was our favorite spot and Ruth and Wimpy's was delish.) In Bar Harbor, Side Street Café and Geddy's were incredible!! But our favorite spot was sitting right out by the water where we got to see, among other things, seal and porpoise swim by. Thank you for an incredible vacation :-)"

  • charming historic cottage

    "We had a perfect week in Brooklin. The historic house is utterly charming. Brooklin is pretty remote, and the place has no internet, and no TV. For us, though, all those things were a plus. We enjoyed the wonderful relaxed quiet of the house, its extensive library and game collection, the piano, the beach (a prime spot for hunting sea glass!) and, perhaps especially, the porch, where I spent many hours reading and drinking coffee. We explored Deer Isle, had pizza and pastries at Tinder Hearth, did some book shopping in Blue Hill, but mostly we read and skipped rocks and swam. A delightful week. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We very much hope to return!"

  • Flying Jib in August 2016

    "Overall, we had an excellent week at Flying Jib. We were three families (12 people total - 6 adults, 6 children). We enjoyed the rustic-ness of the old part of the house! The pictures really show what to expect. The kitchen served well, and was well equipped with dishes, cooking items, etc. We used the propane lobster cooker many times during our stay, as well as the grill. The kids loved the option of a pool (heated too!) after a day of sightseeing in Acadia and surrounding areas. Being able to walk to the beach was great (although the path could use a little maintenance - overgrowth). We also walked through the Outlook property to go to the beach area. Really fun at low tide! We were surprised at how nice the view was from the deck/porch. The pictures with the listing don't do it justice! Bathrooms were plentiful for our large group, and the house is very well stocked with lots of towels, extra sheets, dishtowels and pool towels. They also have the house stocked with TP, paper towels, dish soap, etc. John was super helpful in our communications and planning. He responded within just hours every time I sent a question. I do agree with others that the internet could use some enhancing - usable, but slow. Future renters do need to be aware that this is an older home, by the sea, so there are some mold issues (basement area)."
