About the property

This rental is located on Blue Hill Bay in the town of Brooklin, ME. The 5 acre property has a private beach and easy access to Mt Desert Island and Acadia National Park, either by boat or auto. Our location provides unparalleled scenic beauty, peace and quiet. For sailing enthusiasts we have a deep-water mooring - 18 feet at mean low water - and the myriad of islands and coves in the area makes for ideal boating experiences.

Allen Cove Cottage on Blue Hill Bay
average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews

A wonderful week in NB

  • 5 of 5

This home was just right for our purposes, which were not those of the average tourist, vacationer. The hosts responded immediately with any questions I had both before and during our visit. The whole experience worked out wonderfully. Because we were in North Brooklin for family business, to host our friends for a few days, and had to run our own business while we were there, we could not have chosen a more well suited cottage. Having rented in the area for nearly 50 years, I can report that this experience went remarkably smoothly. The kitchen was very well equipped, all of the windows opened and had screens (a big deal for me! ) seating was adequate and comfortable, the whole place was immaculate and spacious. AND the BED was COMFORTABLE!

The grounds and the access to a swimming beach (pebbles and a little sand, it is way Down East , folks) were just perfect, and the views of Allen Cove were lovely and special. We would not hesitate to return.

Lovely stay in Maine

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were here for a wonderful week with my parents. The cottage is roomy and gave us space to spread out. There are lovely views of the water, which is a 5 minute walk away, past a couple of houses.

The location is excellent, being under an hour to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, and much closer to Blue Hill to the north (full grocery store, restaurants, local hikes from http://bluehillheritagetrust.org) and Deer Isle to the south (we had an excellent lobster lunch at Fisherman's Friend; http://fishermansfriendrestaurant.com).

We enjoyed most of our meals at the cottage, several on the deck with a view of the water.

We had spotty cell phone coverage, but were grateful for the wifi.

Overall we had a very nice time, and would recommend this for others!

A wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with our 4 year old and 7 year old and it was the most relaxing and wonderful vacation we've had in years. The stream with the resident frog, the beach with the ocean treasures, the grassy field - all provided hours of entertainment for the kids. Acadia's an hour away, Blue Hill 20 minutes, Deer Isle 15 minutes, but we ended up staying at the cottage as much as we could. The Brooklin Library 5 minutes down the road is fabulous with a great kids section, and wireless access. The cottage was cozy, clean, well furnished and had plenty of kitchen supplies. The back deck has a barbecue and lovely view. Cell phone coverage is consistent in the cottage (not always the case in coastal Maine) and thus we were able to use our iphones to check email.

Our only regret - that we hadn't signed up for two weeks!

a great Maine experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks and we all could have stayed longer. When you book online you just hope it will live up to what the owner says well this Maine cottage was all that and more. The view from the deck, the fireplace the beds and everything was better than expected. Mr.Gray the owner was so great to talk to and learn more about the area. To be just down the street from the Maine home of EB White the author of Charlotes Web was amazing. Brooklin is a very small town with lots to close by. Wooden Boat School is close by along with Deer Isle which is a must see, but the best was just sitting watching on the deck after a day of kayaking and watching the sun go down. If you want a true Maine cottage, not a pottery barn experience this is it. Go visit Bar Harbor one hour away but stay here!
