Spectacular waterfront cottage with a wonderful, rich history. This restored boat house was built in the 1890s when Brooksville was a trading port with Europe, South America and China.

This cozy, rustic but fully appointed space offers stunning panoramic views of the water with world class sunsets. Enjoy morning coffee or a glass of wine on your own private deck overlooking Castine, Islesboro and Camden Hills. Find fabulous organic food, and yoga, all right down the road.

Carol's boat house cabin is just as described. Perfect location right on the water. It's very remote and down a small dirt road leading to a small town beach where one or two locals bring their boats. It's a rustic cabin with a sliding barn door with screens behind it. They p…

Quaint, cozy and magical. This little boathouse has it all. Nestled in between an apple orchard and the beach, there was so much nature to explore. The cabin was adorably designed and had all required amenities. We truly enjoyed our time up north.
