The SpaceMaplehurst is a quaint, Antique home with lots of history, set in a tiny village on the ocean. Attending a wedding at Edgehill? This is the Ideal place for the parents of the happy couple. You can walk there or drive over in one minute! We are upscale with more bathrooms than Edgehill. We are near Blue Hill which is filled with Art Galleries, music, antiques shops and lovely restaurants. Haystack and Stonington are close by. Acadia is an hour, as is Bar Harbor. You can enjoy all types of ocean cruises from either Stonington or Bar Harbor, for a few hours or all day. Verizon cell phones are not working wellhere but you may use our house phone for sure any time! Guest AccessA bedroom is furnished with a super comfy pillow top Queen bed, feather pillows and lovely soft linens. We do have twin cots in the house, so if you had one or two small children it would be mighty snug...but we could set up the cots at bedtime in the sitting room. I will charge an additional $50 for a child. We have set up two rooms on the third floor with two twin beds. The eaves are low and are not a large rooms, but is cozy and has a nice bathroom. If you wanted to bring 1-2 larger children they could sleep there for a fee. Please know the house is roughly 200 years old and is in NO Way handicap accessible. The stairs to your area are VERY steep. the toilet is at the bottom of those stairs and your suite and shower are up those stairs. I am sorry, but that was simply the way they built them back then. If you bring a pet I will ask a $25 cleaning fee. I am probably going to need to decline cats due to the vast number of people who are allergic, myself included, but I AM willing to talk it over with you as to how much access your four legged family member might need. We also have birds so a feline isn't really compatible. We would Adore having dogs and parrots. If you have a pet Boa Constrictor or lizard or something exotic, we can talk about how that might or might not work. It more or less comes down to safety and damage. August is our High Season and the most Gorgeous time to be in Maine with sapphire skies and seas! The sitting room has free satellite TV, Pay-per-view TV (on the Honor system) and a DVD player with lots of movies to use. We have books and references for traveling in the area or books written by Maine writers. There is a CD player to listen to music or you can just listen to the stream, the crickets and night noises of the yard. There is a mini frig, microwave to make your popcorn, a toaster and a coffeemaker with a huge selections of coffees, tea's and cocoa's. You may use the kitchen at any time 24/7. I simply ask you load the dishwasher with your dirty dishes and leave the kitchen as you found it. I will provide cereals, milk, juices, eggs, breads for toast and jams. There happy to stock any special request you make before your arrival. Please alert me to allergies or issues. We do have nuts in the house. If you'd like to make dinner here, I have staples you are welcome to use. The beach is a 5 minute downhill walk and you probably won't see any other people there. It is a typical Maine pebble beach with a tide that goes out quite a bit. The closest National chain, The Hampton Inn charge about $250 per night just as a matter of comparison. I think you will get good value here. You may use the washer & dryer in the washroom and well as the iron and ironing board. There is a lovely deck with a hammock and Adirondack Chairs. You are welcome to grill if you like. There is a gazebo if you want to smoke a cigar or something. There is however absolutely NO smoking of anything in or near the house. The risk of fire is too great. Our small volunteer fire department has never saved a house as there is no public water they can access. They bring some water and use that to stop the fire spreading to protect the neighbors. That's all they can do. You may use my Garmin when you are here to find your destination. There are also plenty of books and board games to use. Fresh linens and towels are provided. You will find plenty of additional fresh ones in your closet. There are spa robes for your use. There is an Air Conditioner, a space heater, a fan, hairdryer, curling iron and alarm clock you may use. If there is anything at all you need or forgot or had confiscated by our ever vigilant airport security, I have nearly anything you could think of. We are a place to get away from the city, the rat race, the bustle of crowds. On a clear night the stars are magnificent, the fireflies are so pretty from the hammock or porch swing. The gazebo or cupola or beach are perfect places to read a good book. We are quiet, peaceful and utterly safe. Come and ignore your laptop, attend to your partner, relax, breathe the clean air, saunter through the shallow waters edge and be amazed how crystal clear and clean it is. Get out on the water on a boat and smell the salt air. Let the world turn without you for a bit. Make some Maine Memories! Interaction with GuestsWe will greet you and then leave you to enjoy your vacation! If you cook in the kitchen we will see you from time to time, but we won't bother you at all. On the other hand, should we all hit it off, we are more than happy to share travel stories and visit with you to any extent that you would enjoy! All guests need to be verified with AIRBNB. Please don't arrive with additional loved ones until you clear it with me. This applies to children, pets, friends you ran into, etc. I would like a $25 cleaning fee if you choose to bring a pet. We adore animals and will be thrilled to have them, but they tend to require a more complicated cleaning before the next guests who may have allergies. The NeighborhoodWe are a tiny hamlet of 94 households and crime really does not exist here. People are friendly and kind. After dark you will only hear the sounds of nature, possibly the occasional car. Cell phones normally have 1-3 bars at Maplehurst. . Maine is THE most rural state and also very poor, so there is no money to build the infrastructure. Our speed is 9MB per second versus Manhattan which is 150MB per second. Hopefully you will come to relax and get away from technology and work for awhile. If you do need a working weekend, Portland might be a good solution. Getting AroundYou will want to rent a car. There is no public transit. You can rent bikes, kayaks, and canoes. The kayak - canoe company will deliver to our house.I highly recommend taking a Three Masted Schooner Tour, whale, seal and puffin watching or we love touring around the islands with Old Quarry Ocean Adventures. Other Things to NoteI will share just about anything I can, if I have it in my house. I simply want you to leave my house as you found it. Accidents do happen, please just let me know when something has broken. My goal is for you to have the most Wonderful AIRBNB visit ever! If it is my ability, I will do anything I can for you to make that happen. Lastly, in an antique house, things do go wrong. Especially we have noticed, old houses equal old plumbing. Please tell me. It will never hurt my feelings and I sincerely want to know if there is anything that could be improved. Give me the opportunity to make it right. Please & thank you so much for looking at our listing and hopefully for choosing us!

                                          The SpaceSpace is warm wood-paneled with glass sliding door goes out to deck over-looking orchard and gardens. Three people can sleep, shower, and cook in a full size kitchen. Humanure outhouse is odor-free. Material is composted to use for young unbaring trees. This is your opportunity to help a working Maine farm make ends meet by having an ecological vacation. Peach season starts August--certified organic, later heirloom apples and other fruit. Fall unpasteurized cider, raw vinegar and ALL COTTON BEDDING AND LINENS. Guest AccessGuests have a private space for themselves. Walks on the bay shore is rocky until you come to beaches though they are privately owned. The view is of Mt Desert Island(Acadia National Park). The beach on the right is usable and sits in a cove. Interaction with GuestsWe are here most often working on the land. Down stairs below apartment is a cider press, walk-in cooler, and general fruit room which we work in during fruit season which starts sometime in August. The NeighborhoodMaine is unique and the waterside is priceless especially in the short intense summer. The Brooklin Inn is old but very nice. They serve organic meats, vegies, etc. sourced locally. Good chef. Getting AroundThere are a few buses but generally speaking one needs transportation. One may call a taxi. Other Things to NoteThe towns here are charming. Brooklin is famous for wooden boating and building, and fishing. We have award-winning little libraries and hiking trails all over the place. Acadia National Park is our view and an hour's drive away. Brooklin is almost an island and we are surrounded by water and other islands, sailing boats, lobstering. Clean, quiet, rural, and beautiful as only Maine can be. Brooklin is very close to Blue Hill and Deer Isle and further Downeast.

                                          The SpaceThis Coastal Chalet Home is 10 years old and has all the amenities you will need. It has a loft with a queen bed which looks over the great room / kitchen. The master bedroom has a king bed and has a private entrance that goes out to a wood fired sauna and the woods. The other bedroom has a full size bed and overlooks the back 4 acres. The great room / kitchen has a full island where everyone can gather and a full kitchen to use: 5 burner gas stove, microwave, fridge-freezer combo with ice maker and many other appliances. The great room comes equipped with ps3 / dvd player, 40" flat screen tv and wireless internet throughout. A huge sectional sofa adds comfortable luxury after a day out in the sun. Outside you can enjoy 2 decks: one with a patio table, umbrella and a Weber gas fired grill and the other located off the master bedroom with an outside shower. Soon to come is another deck out back off the master bedroom with outside shower. The bathroom has a separate shower (two shower heads) and tub (extra 2" depth). Outside you can enjoy a wood fired sauna (dry only), 4 acres to wander on, organic gardens, lawn space, and peaceful birds singing. The driveway is large so if you are traveling with a boat there is plenty of space to pull in & park. The house is close by to a convenient store and 2 local restaurants. The house is located 7 miles (15 minutes' drive) from Blue Hill. You can find everything from fine dining restaurants to bar and grill settings, art galleries, cute shops and stores, and about an hour's drive from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. What's great about this location is you are only about 2 miles from the public boat launch that leads you directly to Eggemoggin Reach where you can kayak, boat, swim or just wander along the beaches. Within a twelve mile radius there are tons of spectacular views and places to discover. Other small surrounding towns Deer Isle, Stonington, Brooklin, Cape Rosier (Holbrook Island Sanctuary), Brooksville, Sargentville and Castine. This is a very quiet location as we are on a secondary road (yes it is paved) and the house sets back from the road. A perfect place to reset! Guest AccessGuests will have access to the house, yard, deck and the great outdoors in Maine. I will provide things to do and listings of the local scene if you wish. Interaction with GuestsI interact with the guests as much as they wish. I work in the morning to mid afternoon so I can be reached via text or phone call. The NeighborhoodThe house sets back from a secondary road so we really don't have much in the way of a neighborhood. And thats what I like about it. Walking out the front door you have peace! Getting AroundWe do not have public transit of any sort. You will need a car to get around. Other Things to NoteThe sauna is a wood fired sauna and takes about two hours of baby sitting and stoking to bring it up to temperature. I would be the one building the fire due to insurance regulations. You can let me know if this is something that you want to experience ahead of time so I can put that into my schedule. I split my time between my house and my partners home which means I have an apartment downstairs. Please if you are looking for a party pad....this isn't the house for you.

We provide organic soaps, dish liquid, shampoo and cleaners as well as 100% recycled paper products. The wood box will be full of firewood. After your arrival, housekeeping is self-serve and additional firewood is available for a modest fee. We ask that upon departure guests leave Flagstaff as they found it: washing all the dishes and leaving things tidy. We wash the linens upon your departure or change them mid-week in a week-long stay (during high season). Flagstaff is a sophisticatedly rustic, 2-bedroom log-style cottage. It was built from native trees harvested on site and natural granite from the family quarry. There is easy drive-up parking. It’s a distinctive, one of a kind place. The ceiling is open to the log rafters, comfortable refinished rustic furniture from a bygone era, a full width Oceanside porch. Two bedrooms (a queen and two twins to sleep 4). Porch rockers provide for a comfortable wooded view of the Reach below. Its living room has a granite fireplace and a hide-a-bed couch (sleeps 2 more). There’s a full bathroom with tub and shower, and a new full kitchen with campy pantry and sink room. Cottage Maximum 6. No pets, thank-you. Flagstaff Cottage is one of 10 distinctively decorated and designed vintage cottages on our 60 acre coastal property. We have been in business for 127 years welcoming guests from near and far. Many return year after year and regard this as their second or third home away from home. We welcome them like family. Guest AccessWe have 60 acres of coastal land that is available to the guests of Flagstaff Cottage. We have lots of grassy lawns and play areas to for families with children. Our business office is located inside the 127 (well, it was renovated and enlarged in 1889 but it was originally a post and beam Homestead build on land that was granted by King George of England) year old Hotel building. That’s were our staff lives and where we rent out small art studio space during the summer months. Also on site are 9 other distinct and sophisticatedly rustic cottages. There is a mature-minded, casual, slightly funky and without the frills 6 bedroom Hostel@Acorn by the Sea as well Our recreation barn is open to the public for Open Mic. Thursday Evenings in July and August where our resident singer/song writer Emy Taylor performs and welcomes all others. There are hiking trails and an ocean bathing beach with sand...even at low tide and a wonderful vantage point on Lookout Rock about 250' above sea level. Interaction with GuestsWe're eager to help with suggestions of where to go and what to do on the Blue Hill Peninsula which encompasses the towns of Blue Hill, Brooklin, Brooksville, Castine, Penobscot, and Sedgwick. This is the gateway to Deer Isle and Stonington. We have compiled a very comprehensive Guest Directory for guests of Flagstaff Cottage. It includes lists of local attractions, parks, hiking trails, restaurants, musical events, art galleries and things to do and see. Our staff lives on site and is available to provide more information and assistance. There is an old-fashioned pay phone on the porch of the old Oakland House hotel. Calls are free within the local exchange. The NeighborhoodYou will find here the irresistible beauty of Eggemoggin Reach, Pumpkin Island Lighthouse (just across the Reach from our shore), East Penobscot Bay and the magical beauty of the islands that stud the Bay. We are centrally located to the attractions of the Blue Hill Peninsula. Holbrook Island Sanctuary is about 20 minutes away, Bucks Harbor Market is a great place to get fresh baked goods in the morning, Woodenboat School is in nearby Brooklin and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts is across the Reach on Deer Isle. It has a vibrant schedule of workshops and public presentations that spans the entire summer. There are several steel bands that play around at public gatherings all over the Peninsula. This is a huge farming community that revels in its sustainability and its organic produce available in Farmers Markets and road side stands into the fall. Get lobster off the boat in Stonington. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are just over an hour away by car. Or, take the Mailboat from Stonington to Isle au Haut. It’s an island a few miles off shore. This is not a car ferry but you can take a bicycle (excellent idea) and spend the day exploring the island. Half of the island consists of Acadia National Park lands and beaches. They are wildly wonderful. Getting AroundWe are in a country setting without public transportation. You will need a car to explore the area fully. Fly into Bangor International Airport, rent a car there. Take a Concord Trailways bus to Bangor from Boston, New York or beyond. Rent a car and drive here. It’s about an hour and 15 minutes from the Bus Station or the airport. If you like to explore by water, there are abundant opportunities to do it by kayak, canoe or boat. Rent a bicycle and ride the carriage trails in Acadia National Park. Or, rent a bicycle and take it on the Mailboat to Isle au Haut to ride the roads (there are few cars there as there is no car ferry to the island). Other Things to NoteWe have “country wifi” which is quite different from high speed DSL or an inner city wireless connection. Our system is sufficient for personal email and simple searches and web browsing. It is not sufficient for streaming audio or video or uploading large photo files to a server such as Picassa or Instagram. Streaming sports events and movies does not work. We do as much as we can to be environmentally friendly. We have replaced incandescent lights with florescent and LEDs in as many instances as possible. We do not use pesticides on our lawns or gardens and as a result we have a large assortment of wildlife living in harmony with the surrounds. We have a beautiful post and beam barn in which we hold a weekly Open Mic. Our own staff member Emy Taylor is the host. These are held Thursdays (in July and August) starting at 7:00 PM. Our piano is tuned if that is your instrument. Emy has a guitar and amp.

                                            The SpaceDown East Maine -Blue Hill Peninsula Our quaint and rustic little cottage is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath, plus it has a sleeping loft. The bedroom has a queen bed and the loft has two twin beds – the cottage sleeps a total of 4. The country kitchen is stocked with plenty of dishes, pots and pans - everything you need to make a good meal and blueberry pie. Our living-room is very cozy with a sofa, 2 large chairs and the stately stone fireplace and yes, we've actually had fires built in the cool mornings and evenings in July. We also have a flat-screen television with plenty of dvd and old vhs movies. There are plenty of board games, puzzles and reading materials as well. Off from the living room is a sunroom with windows surrounding the entire room. A view from these windows is nothing but the beautiful ocean scene of Eggemoggin Reach. We keep these windows open wide during the day for the magnificent and refreshing ocean breeze coming into the cottage, plus also hearing the water lapping on the shore. The sunroom has a futon sofa where sometimes I find my husband taking his afternoon naps. Above the living-room and behind the stone fireplace is a small sleeping loft. It's the perfect sleeping spot for children and teens. We've even had adults sleeping in the loft as well. The bathroom comes with a small walk-in shower. The grounds are what sold us when we purchased the property. The cottage itself is poised on a scenic bluff. It sits about 50 feet from the rocky beach. Other surroundings around the cottage consists of open grass yard, flower gardens, a small vegetable garden (help yourself to the vegetables), woods, blueberry bushes, and a small wooden old bridge that leads down a path to Blue Ledge (our kids call it "big rock"). When the tide is high (and only at it’s high peak), sometimes kids (and adults), can’t resists jumping from Blue Ledge into the water. This is a small, quintessential old Maine coastal summer cottage built in the early 1960's by a local stone mason from Blue Hill. The cottage faces west and enjoys sweeping views of Eggemoggin Reach - one of Down East Maine's most beautiful saltwater sailing channels. We can see the Deer Isle suspension bridge in the distance. During the season, we often see windjammers sailing up and down the reach between East Penobscot Bay and Jericho Bay. The sunsets are just magnificent as you look up the Reach toward the Deer Island suspension bridge and the Camden Hills. Our cottage is perfect for a couple or small family. The cottage is relatively small, about 600 square feet. For those visiting in the fall, we have stone fireplace and small wood burning stove for heat. The cottage is accessed via private road access and has a private beach with mooring. Kayaks may be available for rent for a nominal fee depending on situation - mountain bikes too. Our cottage is located in the scenic seaside village of Brooklin, Maine which bills itself as "the wooden boat building capital of the world!" Brooklin is in the heart of Down East Maine and is located on the bottom tip of the Blue Hill Peninsula. The area is home to a diverse and somewhat eclectic mix of artists, tradesman, fisherman, boat builders, writers, and organic growers -both local and from "away." Brooklin is NOT a tourist area and being on the bottom tip of the peninsula, it's a bit remote. We are far from all the traffic and noise of Route 1. It’s a beautiful, peaceful relatively remote setting - ideal for artists, writers or those just looking to get away from the city. The seaside towns of Brooksville, Stonington, Deer Isle, Sedgwick, and Castine are nearby and the town of Blue Hill (pop. of about 2200) is about a 15 to 20 minute drive away. We are about a 40 minute drive from Ellsworth which is the gateway city to Acadia and Mount Dessert. Wooden Boat Magazine is headquartered here, as is the Wooden Boat School that is a few miles up the road on Naskeag's Point. The Haystack Mountain School of Art is also a few miles away on Deer Island. The area has tremendous view and "light" for plein air artists and there are many painters in the area. Brooklin enjoys a bit of literary renown as it was where E.B. White lived and penned his famous children's book Charlotte's Web. Several other contemporary writers call this area their home too. For the hearty, and during the middle of the summer, there is ocean swimming at our cottage. There are also several fresh water lakes and ponds nearby. Walker Point, a 7 mile long fresh water pond is only a few miles away and offers public access to swimming and a boat launch. Hiking up Blue Hill "mountain" for the magnificent views is a must. The area is a nature-lovers delight. We often see eagles, osprey, loons and harbor seals. We rent by the week during the summer months of July and August, but may consider shorter stays. Please contact us to inquire. During the months of June, September and October, we require a minimum of a three night stay. PLEASE NOTE: As you can see by the photographs, this is a small, simple, unadorned summer cottage or "camp" as they are called in Maine. It is not a "house" by any means. It’s very cozy. The water to the cottage comes from a local fresh-water spring. I'm happy to answer any additional questions you might have. Cheers! Guest AccessGuests have full access to the cottage. You will also have full access to our property's beautiful yard and beach. Interaction with GuestsUnfortunately we will not be there to great you when you arrive as we live in Virginia.

                                              The SpaceOur historic Hostel@Acorn by the Sea has been a member of the larger Oakland House Cottages by the Side of the Sea vacation property since it opened on July 4th, 1889. The first guests were the Rusticators who arrived by steamship with steamer trunks for a good long Maine coastal retreat escaping the heat and bustle of the cities from which they came. Acorn Cottage was originally an ice house, once a casino, and for years a two-family guest cottage. Currently it lives as our Hostel@Acorn by the Sea. The first floor features two private hostel rooms, a full kitchen, a full bathroom with shower/tub, a living room with a real wood burning fireplace and a covered front porch. The second floor, accessed via an external staircase, includes another private hostel room and three shared hostel bedrooms. The third floor has a full bathroom with a Victorian claw foot tub with handheld shower spray and common area lounge and library. Window fans are available. Firewood is provided for the living room fireplace. Oakland House Cottages by the Side of the Sea offers private guest cottages while the Hostel@Acorn offers simple, self-catering accommodations without the frills or fancy amenities. Clean sheets and towels will be provided for you. All you have to do is make your own bed, pick up after yourself, wash your dishes and relax.. Often, our private cottage guests make their reservations much in advance often for a week or more. Our policies for Hostel@Acorn reservations are different and more flexible. We accept short term reservation of 3 nights or less in Hostel@Acorn and do not take long term reservations. At the last minute we might be able to extend an existing stay on an as available basis. Guest AccessGuests may access several common areas in Hostel@Acorn by the Sea. These include both full bathrooms, first floor living room and covered porch, third floor lounge and library and the lawns and our two beaches. The common kitchen includes a refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, stove with oven and a microwave. There is a selection of pots, pans and tableware. Guests clean up what they use. There is a large picnic table on the lawn at which to enjoy a self-catered meal or snack. In addition, there are two hiking trails on our sixty wooded acres. Climb to Lookout Rock (250’ above sea level) for a grand view of Pumpkin Island and the surrounding area. Marvel at the peaceful surrounds created just for you by Mother Nature. Carry out what you carry in and speak in hushed and subtle tones like the birds and native creatures you will find here. Interaction with GuestsWe're eager to help with suggestions of where to go and what to do on the Blue Hill Peninsula which encompasses the towns of Blue Hill, Brooklin, Brooksville, Castine, Penobscot, and Sedgwick. This is also the gateway to Deer Isle and Stonington. We have compiled a very comprehensive Guest Directory for guests of Hostel@Acorn by the Sea. It includes lists of local attractions, parks, hiking trails, restaurants, musical events, art galleries and things to do and see. Our staff lives on site and is available to provide more information and assistance. There is an old-fashioned pay phone on the porch of the old Oakland House hotel. Calls are free within the local exchange. The NeighborhoodYou will find here the irresistible beauty of Eggemoggin Reach, Pumpkin Island Lighthouse (just across the Reach from our shore), East Penobscot Bay and the magical beauty of the islands that stud the Bay. We are centrally located to the attractions of the Blue Hill Peninsula. Holbrook Island Sanctuary is about 20 minutes away, Bucks Harbor Market is a great place to get fresh baked goods in the morning, Woodenboat School is in nearby Brooklin and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts is across the Reach on Deer Isle. It has a vibrant schedule of workshops and public presentations that spans the entire summer. There are several steel bands that play around at public gatherings all over the Peninsula. This is a huge farming community that revels in its sustainability. They offer organic produce at several local farmers markets and road side stands through the height of the summer. Get lobster off the boat in Stonington. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are just over an hour away by car. Or, take the Mailboat from Stonington to Isle au Haut. It’s an island a few miles off shore. This is not a car ferry but you can take a bicycle (excellent idea) and spend the day exploring the island. Half of the island consists of Acadia National Park lands and beaches. They are wildly wonderful. Getting AroundWe are in a country setting without public transportation. You will need a car to get around here. There are so many things to do and see in this area a car is necessary to explore the area fully. If there's something you really want to do we suggest that you check with that business or destination ahead of time to verify times of operation and availability of a kayak or other rental. Fly into Bangor International Airport, rent a car there. Take a Concord Trailways bus to Bangor from Boston, New York or beyond. Rent a car and drive here. We’re about an hour and 15 minutes from Bangor International Airport of the bus station. There is the smaller Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport in Trenton which serves the Bar Harbor/Mount Desert area. We are about 45 minutes from there. If you like to explore by water, there are abundant opportunities to do it by kayak, canoe or boat. Rent a bicycle and ride the carriage trails in Acadia National Park. Or, rent a bicycle and take it on the Mailboat to Isle au Haut to ride the roads (there are few cars there as there is no car ferry to the island). The roads in Brooksville and on the Blue Hill Peninsula in general are narrow with sandy berms that make bicycle riding in our immediate area less desirable. Other Things to NoteWe have “country wifi” which is quite different from high speed DSL or an inner city wireless connection. Our system is sufficient for personal email and simple searches and web browsing. It is not sufficient for streaming audio or video or uploading large photo files to a server such as Picassa or Instagram. Streaming sports events and movies does not work. We do as much as we can to be environmentally friendly. We have replaced incandescent lights with florescent and LEDs in as many instances as possible. We do not use pesticides on our lawns or gardens and as a result we have a large assortment of wildlife living in harmony with the surrounds. We have a beautiful post and beam barn in which we hold a weekly Open Mic. Our own staffmember Emy Taylor is the host. These are held Thursdays starting at 7:00 PM. Our piano is tuned if that is your instrument. Emy has a guitar and amp.

Our staff lives on site and is available to provide more information and assistance. There is an old-fashioned pay phone on the porch of the old Oakland House hotel. Calls are free within the local exchange. The NeighborhoodYou will find here the irresistible beauty of Eggemoggin Reach, Pumpkin Island Lighthouse (just across the Reach from our shore), East Penobscot Bay and the magical beauty of the islands that stud the Bay. We are centrally located to the attractions of the Blue Hill Peninsula. Holbrook Island Sanctuary is about 20 minutes away, Bucks Harbor Market is a great place to get fresh baked goods in the morning, Woodenboat School is in nearby Brooklin and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts is across the Reach on Deer Isle. It has a vibrant schedule of workshops and public presentations that spans the entire summer. There are several steel bands that play around at public gatherings all over the Peninsula. This is a huge farming community that revels in its sustainability. They offer organic produce at several local farmers markets and road side stands through the height of the summer. Get lobster off the boat in Stonington. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are just over an hour away by car. Or, take the Mailboat from Stonington to Isle au Haut. It’s an island a few miles off shore. This is not a car ferry but you can take a bicycle (excellent idea) and spend the day exploring the island. Half of the island consists of Acadia National Park lands and beaches. They are wildly wonderful. Getting AroundWe are in a country setting without public transportation. You will need a car to get around here. There are so many things to do and see in this area a car is necessary to explore the area fully. If there's something you really want to do we suggest that you check with that business or destination ahead of time to verify times of operation and availability of a kayak or other rental. Fly into Bangor International Airport, rent a car there. Take a Concord Trailways bus to Bangor from Boston, New York or beyond. Rent a car and drive here. We’re about an hour and 15 minutes from Bangor International Airport of the bus station. There is the smaller Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport in Trenton which serves the Bar Harbor/Mount Desert area. We are about 45 minutes from there. If you like to explore by water, there are abundant opportunities to do it by kayak, canoe or boat. Rent a bicycle and ride the carriage trails in Acadia National Park. Or, rent a bicycle and take it on the Mailboat to Isle au Haut to ride the roads (there are few cars there as there is no car ferry to the island). The roads in Brooksville and on the Blue Hill Peninsula in general are narrow with sandy berms that make bicycle riding in our immediate area less desirable. Other Things to NoteWe have “country wifi” which is quite different from high speed DSL or an inner city wireless connection. Our system is sufficient for personal email and simple searches and web browsing. It is not sufficient for streaming audio or video or uploading large photo files to a server such as Picassa or Instagram. Streaming sports events and movies does not work. We do as much as we can to be environmentally friendly. We have replaced incandescent lights with florescent and LEDs in as many instances as possible. We do not use pesticides on our lawns or gardens and as a result we have a large assortment of wildlife living in harmony with the surrounds. We have a beautiful post and beam barn in which we hold a weekly Open Mic. Our own staffmember Emy Taylor is the host. These are held Thursdays starting at 7:00 PM. Our piano is tuned if that is your instrument. Emy has a guitar and amp.
