About the property

Oceanfront 5 Bedroom Home with Boathouse Suite 1 hour to Bar Harbor

Bluff Cottage is nestled on the rocky Maine coast amidst tall pines and an abundance of nature. Relaxing and quiet location (Brooksville, Maine) yet an hour drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

Direct beach access, fantastic wrap around porch - complete with rocking chairs, while comfortably sleeping (11) make Bluff Cottage the perfect location for you and your family to discover Maine’s sunsets, schooners and starfish.

The main house has a first floor master suite (with queen-sized bed) complete with bathroom and shower. The open living room and dining room are filled with windows so you won’t miss a moment of the changing tides or the graceful porpoise swimming by. Enjoy the roar of the fireplace (gas) while enjoying a DVD or Direct TV on the new flat screen. Need to keep in touch with the office? Perhaps check out what's happening in the area, Bluff Cottage is equipped with a broadband wireless connection that works anywhere on the property as well as a full sized washer and dryer for your convenience.

The dining room’s huge picture window allows for picturesque views of Pumpkin Island Lighthouse and the splendid array of boats sailing the reach. The kitchen is well appointed (full sized gas range / oven, full sized refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, radio) and ready for that lobster dinner for 12. Even the kitchen has its own special view. Follow the winding pine staircase upstairs to (4) bedrooms and a full bath. Each bedroom has ocean views and (2) of the (4) bedrooms connect to a window-laden sleeping porch with a great breeze.

The rental also includes our adorable Boathouse, perfect for the in-laws or additional guests. Complete with kitchenette, queen-sized bed, private bath, and deck, perched on our cove’s high tide mark. Talk about on the water!

Built at the turn of the 20th century, this family home is truly a beautiful seaside location. The ability to comfortably sleep (11) makes Bluff Cottage ideal for family get-togethers.

Bluff Cottage - Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful Place, the view was incredible. Would consider renting this home again. A few problems but owner took care of everything immediately. Was quiet and very relaxing.

Even Better Than I Remembered

  • 5 of 5

Somewhere north of 20 years ago, my family stayed in this cottage. We loved every minute! Just two weeks ago we rented this ideal spot again as it is large enough to accommodate the whole family - grandparents, children and grandchildren. What a joy! Loved the improvements - Wi-fi, washer/dryer and boathouse. The photos posted are absolutely representative of the property as is the description. This is a quiet spot not too far from Blue Hill with its Down East sophistication and just a tad further to the town on Deer Isle and Stonington. I cannot say enough about visiting the Stonington Lobster Co-op to pick out your own special "bugs". Nearby Bucks Harbor is a delight and, although the sign no longer hangs outside, One Morning In Maine lovers will recognize the real Condon's Garage. There is dramatic - home is perched on a bluff. There is easy kayak entry on the beach (this is a Maine beach - do not read "sand"), plenty of grass for a game of tag. I cannot say enough about Bluff. The only caveat to a stay at Bluff would apply also to most cottages nearby - this is not glitz, this is not hustle-bustle, this is not a million distractions, this place is not about frenzied activity. It is about peace, beauty, clean air, clear water, and time to decompress. It is perfect. Oh, and ps - I forgot the screen porch. A blessing in the evening!

I am checking below "families with young children" but understand they will bear watching.

Quaint and Quiet. Beautiful and Undisturbed. Brooksville and the Blue Hill peninsula are quintessential Maine. Sweeping Views of Eggomoggin Reach and Pumpkin Lighthouse that will bring your family back year after year. Hiking, Golf, fishing, little places to discover, local food and people who love what they do and it shows. Relax, unwind, get lost - and have a jewel like Bluff to call home during your stay. Lobster dinners, farmer's market, 44 North Coffee roasters, so many things and places to discover. Our beach holds its own magic with sea urchins, star fish and crab to find. Hiking, mountain biking, fishing, golfing, are all just a step outside however the best part of Bluff Cottage is the porch - with your rocking chair perched to see the passing schooners like the Victory Chimes or to just enjoy a sunset you will leave feeling like they got the license plates right in Maine, "The Way Life Should Be". Bar Harbor is an hours drive and Acadia National Park is a great way to explore Maine, closer to Brooksville is the Holbrook Sanctuary on Cape Rosier where the treasures of Maine's woods have been preserved and there is trailhead after trailhead to discover. While on Cape Rosier an incredible all season farm makes for a great stop with an incredible variety of lovingly grown produce. Stonington and Deer Isle have a special charm and beauty that is not to be missed and yes - The Stonington Lobster Pound sells directly to the public - YUM, doesn't get any fresha'. Come explore of Blue Hill, Surry, Ellsworth and the Penobscot Peninsula and enjoy the incredible beauty of the lush pine woods meeting the salty rocky seashore - MAINE.
