HISTORIC SUMMER COTTAGE IN EXCLUSIVE SUMMER COLONY

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday home in Brooklin

House, 6 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Our family cottage, Keewaydin, was built in 1908, and has been

continuously enjoyed by 5 generations of our family. The architecture,

featuring an open living room facing directly up to the rafters, with a

balcony running along two sides of the second story, was designed by

Washington DC architect Frank Bibb.

In 2004 , a total renovation of the cottage was undertaken with the goal

of not only preserving it for future generations by modernizing the

interior, but restoring the gardens and grounds, including the original

entrance, reconstructed from photographs. In addition to the amenities

we have itemized, the cottage has a double screened in porch where we

often take our meals. Across the road is the only private beach in the

Colony, owned by us and one other family. You can keep your row boat,

kayak, canoe or sailfish tied up there.

The cottage is located in Haven Colony, also known as Center Harbor, the

location of Anne River Siddons' novel 'Colony.' The Center Harbor Yacht

Club, which includes more small boats than yachts, keeps a running

schedule of boating events for young and old alike. The Club's tennis

court is steps from our door. But for those seeking R+R and a respite

from human society, all you need is the house and the beach.

All the glories of Down East Maine are nearby: i mile from Wooden Boat School; Deer Isle 20 miles;

Castine 30 miles; Acadia National Park 60 miles. Our cottage does not

have internet access but the internet is available at the Brooklin

Library, 1 mile from the cottage. The cottage is a retreat in one of the

most glorious places in the world. We offer it for just a few weeks when

it is at its finest.

Full Kitchen, Washer, Dryer, Linens Provided, Wheelchair ramp, Pets OK,
