Unplug, unwind, and truly get away from it all at this newly renovated cabin at the river's edge in beautiful Brooksville! Thoughtfully remodeled to enhance its classic, rustic atmosphere, this delightfully tech-free cabin boasts serene river views, cathedral ceilings, and plentiful windows that let in the early morning light. Beautiful details include oak hardwood floors, a built-in hearth, an efficient soapstone wood stove, and a screened-in porch. You'll leave behind the pressures of everyday life as you spend your days kayaking, listening to the local loons, and curling up with an assortment of books and puzzles.
Take the provided kayaks out for a paddle on the Bagaduce River right in front of the cottage, or canoe across to historic Castine, which is only 30 minutes by water or 45 minutes (18 miles) by car. There are also plenty of inlets and islands along the river to explore, and the fishing here is quite good. Enjoy a day of hiking at Holbrook Island Sanctuary six miles away, or plan an unforgettable day trip to Acadia National Park, whose 47,000 acres of Mount Desert Island are only 41 miles east.
