Overview

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.

About The Owner

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

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2004

Why The Owner chose Brooklin

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

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 ...."

Lovely home in a spectacular and convenient setting

  • 5 out of 5
Sea Meadow is a lovely and immaculately kept home, in a spectacular setting on the edge of Blue Hill Bay. The first morning of our stay, a school of Harbour porpoises swam through, close to shore, and throughout our stay, birdlife was abundant. The call of a loon at dusk is an experience not to be missed in this lifetime. Sea Meadow cottage is in a very private location, but only minutes away from the Wooden Boat School in nearby Brooklin, and puts all of the eastern arm of Penobscot Bay within easy reach. It is the nicest vacation rental we have ever stayed in, and we look forward to returning!

Perfect getaway, great vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I had a perfect week with two of our adult children at Sea Meadow Cottage. The cottage was immaculate but cozy, and we felt at home at once. Inside we played cards, watched movies, and had some wonderful meals, all cooked in the pristine, fully-equipped kitchen. Outside we enjoyed playing Frisbee on the lawn and having snacks on the deck while soaking in the amazing view. We took walks on the beach and did a lot of kayaking directly from the cottage. We already have a framed picture that we took from the deck of the sun rising over Bernard Mountain. We cannot imagine a more perfect place to spend a vacation.

Our only regret about Sea Meadow Cottage involves next year. Three day after returning home we tried to reserve any week in the same month in which we rented this year but found that the cottage was already fully booked for all dates within our possible 8-week window!

Owner's Response: Thank you! I am very glad that you and your family enjoyed the time that you spent at "Sea Meadow" this summer. I am so sorry that the dates that you inquired about for next year were not available. To be fair to all guests, I accept reservations on a "first come, first served" basis. Hopefully, your requested dates will be available should you want to return to "Sea Meadow" at some other time in the future.

Relax in Maine

  • 5 out of 5
My family had a wonderful time staying at the beautiful Sea Meadow Cottage. My boys had fun exploring the tidepools and beachcombing for shells and seaglass... while we took in the view of the Maine coast. We enjoyed hiking up to the church, playing Maine Monopoly, and going for icecream at the Brooklin General Store. It was a peaceful and relaxing vacation. The cottage was very comfortable and clean. It was a great place to come back to after exploring the small towns of Maine and Acadia NP. The cottage was equipped with everything that a family needs to feel at home. The beds were VERY comfortable. We will definitely be back. Thank you for your hospitality Mary Louise.

We spent two weeks at Sea Meadow & loved it. The setting was magnificent, the cottage beautiful, comfortable, well equipped & maintained. The owner left a book with suggestions for sightseeing, dining, etc. (very helpful). This is a property that is easy to recommend. The grounds are very beautiful & I find it hard to believe that the deer don't eat the day lilies.

My only suggestion would be more light in the living/ dining area.

Owner's Response: I am truly happy that you enjoyed your vacation in Brooklin. Thank you very much for recommending "Sea Meadow" to others!
P.S. - The chandelier above the dining table has a dimmer switch. The switch design is such that it is not obvious that it has a dimmer slide on it. We are putting a label on the switch to alert guests of the dimmer function.

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!
