Heated Cottage Perfect for Year Round Getaway

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

A two bedroom log home in the peaceful, friendly Penobscot Bay town of Brooksville, our cabin would make perfect base for exploring our beautiful area by land or sea.

You'll find many opportunities for sailing, canoeing or kayaking. It is a short walk to Orcutt's Harbor, a mile from the Buck's Harbor public landing and is minutes away from landings at the Holbrook Island Sanctuary state park, Smith Cove and the Bagaduce River. Although there's plenty to do, Brooksville is pleasantly quiet, even in summer. It's a twenty-minute drive to Blue Hill, and Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are an hour away. From Stonington, about a half hour away, you can take the mailboat to Isle au Haut, home of the less-visited part of Acadia.

The cabin is heated and is available year round. Fall is especially beautiful around here.

We now offer wireless internet access.

About Matthew Freedman

We're back! You'll see that we got great reviews from our former guests (2010-2014). Then we took a break. But now we're up and running again, beginning July 2017 - offering the same down home experience, a peaceful getaway. AND a newly renovated kitchen space.

Brooksville has been our home for over 30 years. With more than 50 miles of coastline, the scenery is fantastic, but it's also the strong sense of community and sensible pace of life that make it a great place to spend time.

Matthew Freedman purchased this cabin in 2010

What makes this cabin unique

You can pay more for a water view. But if you're happy with a quiet, slightly inland spot (within 1/2 mile of the saltwater), sitting on the screened-in front porch enjoying the woods and wildlife, this may be the economy choice for you. The cabin is clean and comfortable. We enjoy welcoming guests and orienting you to our beautiful corner of the world and what it has to offer.

Our family came to the area for a short stay. The cabin is equipped with everything we needed, including a list of area activities and resources. Would recommend to anyone who wants to get the most out of the area.

Cozy and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a cozy, clean and quiet getaway, then this is the place. Nestled in the beautiful coastal forest of the Blue Hill peninsular, this cabin comes well equipped with books, games, pots, pans and utensils to make yourself at home. The owners also left a comprehensive folder of brochures and personal recommendations for restaurants and activities in the area which we used extensively. The screened porch is wonderful and we enjoyed sitting in the rocking chairs listening to the crickets and birds in the late afternoon. The location is perfect to access the many small towns and hiking opportunities that the peninsular and nearby Deer Isle offer. The best recommendation I can give is that we plan to go back as soon as we can.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cabin with the little extra touches that make it home and show it is cared for with love. We really enjoyed our stay. The location worked well for exploring the area, we loved morning coffee at Buck's Market, exploring Blue Hill, especially Blue Hill Books, visited Acadia and Bar Harbor and Fort Knox and the observatory at the top of the bridge! WOW! Thank you for the book of local places and for a wonderful place to stay.

Peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Matthew and Kathleen are great hosts. They communicate very clear and are open for all questions. The cottage is very clean, full of nice details, many books, many games for playing during rainy days. You can find there a lot of information about local stuff, groceries, trails through the nature, etc... It was so helpful for us, we stayed only three days there and were able to find very good things so easy.

Cottage is on the Blue Hill peninsula and it is perfect to start investigation of that area.

We warmly recommend this cottage and hope we will come back!

Always available over the phone to help. 100% recommended. Just one request, if you are visiting this property, please be respectful and kind to the owners. They are nice people.
