Description of the Brooksville vacation cabin rental
This fully renovated two-story camp on the edge of the water has a new kitchen and bathroom. Skylights in the gambrel roof give excellent water views. Walk along the rocky ocean shore, which is just a few steps away down a wooden stairway. Explore the Bagaduce River by kayak with its many coves and islands. Play badminton in the yard or just sit on the fully screened porch and listen to the call of loons as you enjoy our ever-changing sunsets. A selection of games, books and puzzles are provided for a rainy day, and a supply of dry wood is provided for the woodstove to create a warm and cozy atmosphere.
Brooksville, with a total area of 33.8 square miles and 53 miles of coastline, is home to Holbrook Island Sanctuary, a pristine nature reserve, and also the Good Life Center, the last hand-built homestead of Helen and Scott Nearing (authors of Living the Good Life). Buck's Harbor provides a locus of community activity where one can enjoy the sounds of steel drums and dancing in the streets every other Monday evening throughout the summer. The Bagaduce River is a saltwater estuary located between Brooksville and Castine, with numerous islands and inlets. Historic Castine, home of Maine Maritime Academy, is 45 minutes away by car or 30 minutes by kayak. If you enjoy antiquing or browsing artisan shops, nearby Blue Hill is just 20 minutes away.

Our small family (dog, too) had a great time at the cottage... kayaking was great in either direction of the Bagaduce (better when we followed the tide) and the screened porch gave us a view of the nice sunsets.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Maine.
