Located near the tip of Blue Hill Peninsula, Brooklin, Maine, we offer a quiet retreat within an hour drive of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park to the East, and Deer Isle, Stonington and Castine to the West. A one-minute walk from The Maine Hideaway's doorstep brings you into the historic village of Brooklin, Maine with shops, the Brooklin General Store, Brooklin Library and many of the boat yards which makes Brooklin the Wooden Boat Building Capital.

This gorgeous 1874 home hosted guests for years prior to closing in 2009.  Jeff and Maribeth Carson purchased the property in May 2016 and within a few weeks, we were up and running for the Summer 2016 season.  We love having Wooden Boat School students, guests of summer weddings and into the Fall, we enjoyed meeting all of the "leaf peepers," out exploring our waterways and Acadia National Park.  We fell in love with the "magic" of Brooklin and hope you will too.

What a GEM! If you like the back roads and beautiful coastline, this a wonderful place. It’s immaculately clean, the linens are wonderful and is a great value for the price.  Loved it here!  Robin L. 11/2017

Such a comfortable, friendly and convenient place to stay in the heart of wooden boat paradise, Brooklin, Maine. Yummy breakfast, high quality towels and bed linen, and a quiet restful room. Highly recommended! Adrienne J 10/2017

Was just perfect! Zdenek F 7/2017

Jeff is a great cook and breakfast was a full meal; fresh fruit, pastry, eggs and bacon. Maribeth is an incredible host and when we left it was like leaving friends. The location is in between Acacia NP and the small communities to the south which are a must see.  Gregg W. 6/2017
