Gray Cottage is located on the border of Blue Hill and Brooklin, overlooking Blue Hill Bay and across the waters to the Acadia region. This rustic, 1940s classic beach cottage sits 10 feet from the shore and is fronted by a meandering sandy beach that is a mix of rocky outcroppings and sand and backed by 15 acres of pastoral fields. It offers the quintessential Maine summer cottage experience – simple yet meeting all the needs for a relaxed vacation.
A spacious living room opens to the waterside and covered porch with inspiring views out over the water. The kitchen is just off the living room, as are the three cozy bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms are on the back side overlooking the pasture, while the waterside bedroom has wrap-around windows that take in the view from all sides. While not fancy, it would be hard to beat the beach, setting, and views from this cottage, and the location is convenient for enjoying not only the coastal villages on Brooklin and Blue Hill, but Deer Isle to the south, Castine to the west, and Acadia to the east – all just a short drive away. For those liking that classic New England experience in a prime oceanfront setting, Gray Cottage is your place! The view from the covered porch and oceanside windows is a panorama of dancing waves. The color of the light and ocean changes with the season…..from an impossibly deep green and blue to a gun metal gray when a noreaster blows in. Enjoy the sounds of the waves and the fresh ocean air right in your bedroom.
If you’re looking for a slower rhythm of days and a way to make the tension in your shoulders drain away, than this refuge by the sea is a perfect choice.
