The Boulders was originally part of a well-known Maine summer resort. Back in the 19th century wealthy people in New York and Boston would throng, by steamship, to the cool, clean restful Maine coast for the summer. They called it rusticating. The Lookout Inn was a resort built for rusticators, and over the years has expanded to include a number of cottages – including the Boulders.
The resort is as popular today as it has always been. At the end of a quiet peninsula, it has a quintessentially Maine feeling. A long rocky, but walk-able beach surrounds a large open field. Views in every direction are spectacular. The ocean water of Jericho Bay surrounds the peninsula and is dotted with islands. One is even close enough to walk to at low tide!
You will have night skies with more stars than you can imagine, exquisite walking trails, pristine ocean water, and lots of local attractions.
Old-fashioned charm abounds. The Inn serves an elegant dinner just a short walk away. Or stay at home and make your own feast. The kitchen in the Boulders is well-equipped (including a lobster steamer), and there is a barbeque on the deck for grilling local fish.
It is a perfect place to relax and get back in touch with your life, your soul, and your family and friends. The cottage sleeps 8 so bring those you love to share the experience.
The cabin sits in the most magical of places, water and skyline where ever you look. Peaceful and quiet are the best words to describe the space. The back porch was our favorite of places, any time of the day. Walking to the point became a daily ritual and we went many times a day. If you do not live where the night sky is clear and star lit, get ready for the view of all the constellations and the milky way. Blue Hill and Brooklin have many opportunities to dine and shop and be certain to save a night for dinner at the Look Out , just a quick walk away for very delicious food and lovely service. We'll be back!
this rental has everything one needs at a vacation rental.
THE rental is built in beautiful surroundings we loved being there.
I really enjoyed my stay at this cottage due to the surrounding beauty. There is a lodge with a restaurant called the Lookout which is right outside the front door which was great. The views of the water from this restaurant in the early evening were lovely, and the rack of lamb was wonderful as well as the duck!! The cottage met our needs but it was the views just a short walk outside our front door that made it special. We brought our two dogs which was very important to me. The only thing that would have made my stay at the cottage more enjoyable would have been a gate on the back porch so I could keep my dogs outside with me, that was a little bit of a problem. This is a lovely spot and I would definately go back.
Eight adults and plenty of space. Clean, comfortable beds, beautiful location and plenty of clean linens. Weather could not of been more perfect. Sunny every day and cool beautiful nights. I would highly recommend.
The cottage accommodated 8 people very comfortably. The location is wonderful, views of the water in multiple directions and easy access to the beach. The cottage was very clean, fresh sheets and towels upon arrival.
I have already booked my 2 weeks for 2014.
Brooklin is known for its scenic beauty and has always attracted artists, nature lovers, and boat enthusiasts. The town has been called the wooden boat building capital of the world! WoodenBoat magazine and school are very close by.
For recreation on the water, Kayak rentals or sailboat charters are easily available.
There are a number of artist galleries in all the surrounding towns, and the world renowned Haystack Mountain School of Crafts is nearby on Deer Isle.
For music, Kneisel Hall, a world famous classical music school is up the road in Blue Hill. Student concerts are regularly performed for the public. In a very different genre, live steel Drum music is a available on the Peninsula every Monday night during the summer. CBS Sunday morning did a feature story on the proliferation of steel drum players on the Blue Hill Peninsula.
Brooklin also has a rich literary history. A number of well-known authors make their summer home in town. EB and Katherine White spent many years as Brooklin residents and helped to endow the award-winning Friend Memorial Library.
Probably best of all is the abundant availability of nature to our visitors. Whether you are a bird watcher, star gazer, or just enjoy a walk in clean fresh air, we have it all. There are numerous nature conservancy trails throughout the area. Acadia National Park is on the next peninsula over, and Blue Hill mountain is close by and very popular.
