|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Sip your morning coffee on the spacious oceanfront deck while watching the sun rise over the mountains of Acadia and Blue Hill Bay. Listen to the sound of the waves and shorebirds as you watch lobstermen check their traps in the bay in front of the cottage. Explore the secluded, rocky beach and look for sea glass and shells. Enjoy an evening cocktail and watch the moon rise over the Blue Hill Bay Lighthouse. Count the stars in the Milky Way and bask in utter peace and contentment.
‘Sea Meadow’ is a charming, shingle-sided cottage perched 75 feet from the ocean’s edge on the western shore of Blue Hill Bay. It has spectacular open views of the Blue Hill Bay Lighthouse set against the backdrop of Mount Desert Island. The cottage sits on four acres of land and is surrounded by grass and wildflower meadows. A private staircase provides access to the deepwater shorefront and beach with granite boulders. It is only a one hour and 15 minutes drive to Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island.
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 stocked with board games, puzzles, television with satellite service, DVD player and more than 80 DVDs. There is a large deck that faces the ocean with a dining table and plenty of seating. The kitchen and bathroom were 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 railings, guests should only use the lower bunks.)
Brooklin 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 the home of 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.
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 reaching 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 Blue Hill Bay stretching to the western shore of Mount Desert Island with the Blue Hill Bay Lighthouse in the foreground.
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.
"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 ...."
My husband and I stayed at Sea Meadow the second week of Sept. What a wonderful time of year to visit the
the Maine coast....warm days and cooler nights. It was so peaceful and relaxing sitting on the deck enjoying the
view or walking the shoreline at low tide. We explored the surrounding area and ate fantastic seafood. The
cottage was perfect...very clean...and supplied with all the comforts of home. We hope to return next year.
My husband and I stayed at Sea Meadow and were very happy with everything! You are right on the water and the 180 degree views of the bay, lighthouse and Cadillac Mountain are incredible. The cottage was beautiful, clean and very well cared for. We had wonderful meals at a few of the local restaurants. It is very convenient to the Wooden Boat School and a great place to stay if you are thinking of taking courses there. We will definitely be back next year!
I stayed at Sea Meadow with my husband and daughters (6 & 8), and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The cottage is perfect with great attention to detail, and the views of the water are stunning. We loved exploring the beach just steps from the porch and the girls loved collecting treasures (shells and rocks). The decor is lovely and the cottage is very comfortable. We explored Brooklin and the neighboring towns and cannot wait to return. Mary Louise was a pleasure to deal with, provided helpful information about the area, and even called to check on us. We would definitely recommend Sea Meadow to anyone looking in this area for the perfect cottage.
We've been vacationing on Penobscot Bay for many years and doubted anything could surpass its beauty until we pulled down the driveway to “Sea Meadow.” Truly, a breath-taking moment! The cottage, inside and out, was also spectacular. The attention to detail and the design of the cottage could not be more perfect. All of the previous reviews are completely accurate without any exaggeration. If you are looking for a great place to relax and enjoy Down East Maine, this is the place.
My husband and our two daughters (ages 3 and 5) stayed here for a week in the end of June. We wanted a quiet comfortable spot to relax and explore the Maine Coast and found exactly that. The owners' decor and attention to details for its guests - of all ages - is impeccable.
Our daughters spent every morning looking for sea glass on the beach, just steps away from the cottage. We enjoyed beautiful sunrises on the deck and relaxing and reading on the cozy furniture in the evening.
Brooklin, Maine is a great location for exploring the many Down East towns, it was easy to get to Bar Harbor/Acadia, Deer Isle and Blue Hill from our central location.
We felt incredibly at home and comfortable in the house and look forward to returning in future years.
My wife and I come to Maine every year and decided to try staying in the Brooklin area. We loved "Sea Meadow Cottage" it was perfect for us with it's spectacular views and classic Maine cottage feel we felt right at home. It is equipped with everything you could possibly need to make your stay an enjoyable one. We highly recommend this property and plan on returning next year.
