Spend time on Herrick Bay in this charming, restored, single level, classic, 1930's Maine shingled cottage consisting of a main living/dining area, kitchen, three bedrooms and one full bath. Located near Naskeag Point and just outside the village of Brooklin, the comfortable, charming main living area includes antiques and wicker furniture, good reading lamps, a vaulted ceiling, white-washed walls, hardwood floors and a propane stove for chilly days. Three bedrooms sleep up to four adults and two children and include two queen beds and two twin beds, all with comfortable mattresses. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking meals with many vintage touches and an outdoor shower allows for rinsing after swimming. Brooklin is best known for its picturesque bays and waterways and premier sailing waters, and is home to WoodenBoat School, boat builders and boat yards, craftspeople and artists. Enjoy beautiful sunrises drinking coffee on the screened porch swing, watch the lobster boats, listen to waves lapping at the shore, swim and kayak from the rocks at high tide with easy access using the wooden steps to the beach, explore the tidepools, and enjoy the many area hiking trails. This is a favorite cottage that enjoys returning guests each year. The property includes a quaint playhouse for children and is supplied with games and puzzles for rainy days. Please note: Owners will consider hypoallergenic, non-shedding dogs up to 50 pounds with an additional fee and signed pet agreement. The twin bedroom is accessed from the queen bedroom and is best suited for younger children. Internet is 50 Mbps Fidium fiber and cell reception is generally good. The TV has Roku for streaming.
