DEEPWATER OCEANFRONT WITH LIGHTHOUSE VIEWS

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Brooklin - Sea Meadow

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

'Sea Meadow' is a charming, shingle-sided cottage located on Naskeag Point in Brooklin, Maine. The cottage is located only 75 feet from the water on four acres of land and is surrounded by grass and wildflower meadows. There are spectacular open views across Herrick and Blue Hill bays to Mount Desert Island. (A photograph of the view from our property appeared on page 69 in the September 2008 volume of 'Down East' magazine.) The non-working Blue Hill Bay lighthouse is directly off-shore from the property. A private staircase provides access to over 260 feet of deepwater shore frontage and a beach with granite boulders.

The living room/dining area walls are covered in antique barn board siding with a beamed ceiling. The den includes an entertainment center that is well-stocked with board games, television, and a DVD player. There is a large deck that faces the ocean with a dining table and plenty of outdoor furniture. The kitchen and bathroom have been completely remodeled. (The bathroom has a stall shower only.)

The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed. The two cozy additional bedrooms each have built-in bunk beds. (Due to the fact that the top bunks do not have any railings, guests should only use the lower bunks.)

Brooklin, Maine is located on the southeast tip of the Blue Hill Peninsula between Blue Hill Bay and Eggemoggin Reach. It is a beautiful, quiet village that boasts it is 'the boatbuilding capital of the world.' Author E.B. White and his wife Katharine made it their home. Brooklin is still home to many fine boat builders, lobstermen, and the headquarters of WoodenBoat Magazine. People come from around the world to attend boat building or sailing classes at the WoodenBoat School. Brooklin is, quite simply, a very special place.

Guestbook comments from the owner
"Once in a great while, when we're really fortunate in life, we get to experience a time and place of true perfection - a place in which we would not change one thing or wish for a single missing piece - a time of total peace and contentment. Our time at Sea Meadow was all of that, for both of us. From the moment we drove down the driveway and the cottage (plus the amazing view beyond it!) came into view, we were both pinching ourselves - hard to believe that such a magical place would be 'ours' for a week! You and Kent have overlooked nothing in providing for the comfort of your guests, and your attention to quality and detail is evident throughout the house. ... We were cozy and comfortable - we both agree, it felt like home. This spectacular stretch of coastline, with Blue Hill Lighthouse, all the islands, the lobstermen tending their traps out front, the friendliness of virtually everyone we met - all kept us smiling. Dinner at Arborvine on our final evening was delicious - a perfect close to the week.

Our dream and hope is to return to Sea Meadow within the next year or two ...."

Our family loves to sail. This is a photo of our sailboat, 'Picaro,' on her maiden voyage.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2004

The natural beauty of 'down east' Maine is unparalleled. Our entire family fell in love with the area the first time that we vacationed here. The scenery is gorgeous: the blue of the ocean stretching out to the horizon; dark green firs and pines hugging the rocky shore; hundreds of off-shore islands; and white clapboard Victorian farmhouses. When this property came on the market, we were captivated by the spectacular open views of the Blue Hill Bay lighthouse set against the backdrop of the mountains on Mount Desert Island.

The proximity of the cottage to the water is wonderful. My favorite thing is to get up in the morning before the rest of the family. The house is quiet and I take a good book and my morning coffee out on the deck. I love looking out at the constantly changing color and pattern of the water and listening to the waves lapping against the shore.

PARADISE :)

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I recently returned from a second stay at Sea Meadow. I cannot begin to explain how much we LOVE IT THERE!! The house is beautiful, setting stunning. Every detail has been considered when furnishing this home- it is a very comfortable, serene, accommodating space to spend some time. The yard is especially perfect for my family. We have two young children, who began every morning running around in the yard, as my husband and I relaxed on the porch, sipping coffee while staring into the beautiful Blue Hill Bay. And if you're an early riser, the sunrises are like nothing you've ever seen. We cannot wait to go back!

STUNNING LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
The photos do not do this amazing property justice. This location is absolutely stunning. The home is very comfortable and has everything you need for a week - or longer - on the Maine coast. My kids loved the running around the backyard and exploring the rocky beach. We had a wonderful stay, and we are planning to return. Thank you!

PERFECT SETTING TO CELEBRATE RETIREMENT

  • 5 out of 5
The photos on the VRBO website simply do not do justice to this beautifully furnished and well-equipped cottage. The views of Blue Hill Bay are spectacular!. We especially enjoyed seeing the wildlife at sunrise each morning. We were able to spend time in all three sections of Acadia National Park during our stay. The highlight was island hopping from Isle au Haut to Stonington via kayak. Sea Meadow Cottage provided the perfect setting for me to celebrate my retirement!

Owner's Response: I also love to watch the sun rise over Blue Hill Bay (although I must confess that I also like to go back to bed afterwards). Thank you very much for staying at Sea Meadow. I hope that you enjoy your retirement and return to "Sea Meadow" in the future.

POSTCARD PERFECT!

  • 5 out of 5
Aside from the breathtaking views--especially spectacular at sunrise, but always beautiful--the cottage is totally charming. We have rented many vacation homes, and this cottage was one of the most thoughtfully equipped, decorated and landscaped. If you like to cook, you will not lack for anything you might need. The red, white and blue decor is very tasteful and the beds, sofas and chairs were very comfortable. And whether it's coffee or cocktails you enjoy on the deck (or both), you can't help but be enveloped in total serenity and peacefulness as you enjoy the waters of Blue Hill Bay a stone's throw away. And if you like a rural view for a change, sit on the deck on the west side of the house and enjoy the flowering meadow. Really, this is a special place and a return visit will be in order! Thanks for a most memorable vacation.

PERFECT COTTAGE FOR A FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 out of 5
My family of four stayed in the cottage this August and we were overwhelmed by the beauty of it all. Inside, the cottage was perfectly decorated and had every amenity you could wish for. The owner was very gracious and responded quickly to every one of my inquiries from the time of the booking to the minute of our arrival. Outside, the privacy and the view were unmatched by any of the other properties we drove past on our way to and from Acadia for five days of our stay. Our only regret is that we did not make this a two-week vacation! Thank you, Mary Louise!

"SEA MEADOW COTTAGE" IS MAINE-SPEAK FOR PERFECT!

"Sea Meadow Cottage" is Maine-speak for Perfect!
  • 5 out of 5
We arrived late at night at Sea Meadow Cottage and were instantly charmed and delighted by the tasteful decor and cleanliness. But the real beauty wasn't seen until the next morning when we were able to enjoy the spectacular views across the bay of beautiful Mount Desert Island and the story-book like Blue Hill Bay lighthouse, the sounds of the lobster boats going out for their daily catch and, of course the ever changing water and sky. Views we never tired of during our entire stay.

Sea Meadows had everything we needed to make this the perfect home base: a well kitted out kitchen, interesting dvd-s, games and books for "at home" entertainment and access to a washer/dryer--- all greatly appreciated. The beds were comfortable and the storage space for luggage and clothes worked perfectly. The large living room/dining area windows that looked out over the bay provided spectacular viewing in all kinds of weather, as did the deck, complete with chaise lounges, chairs and tables.

Visitors really need 2 weeks at Sea Meadow cottage. One week dedicated to rest and relaxation, with strolls to the end of the point (with a stop at historic Naskeag cemetery), a walk to the campus of WoodenBoat School, a quick trip to the village for "necessities" (a gift shop in Brooklin has an excellent selection of regional books), a Thursday visit to the summer Farmer's Market. Another week to spend exploring towns like Rockland (a must for art devotees of the Wyeth Family), trips to Acadia and Bar Island, visits to Deer Isle. It's no wonder that we want to return to "our" cottage for more Maine Adventure!

Everyone who has seen our vacation pictures envies our good luck in finding such a perfect home and we have been recommending Sea Meadow to family and friends.
