Just 10 miles inland from the beautiful, picturesque coastal town of Belfast Maine, Brooks is a charming small town with a small town feel. This beautiful lake-front home is only 20 minutes from Unity; home to the Common Ground Fair and 45 minutes from Bangor. A peaceful, winding, private dirt road will take you right up to the house. Directly across the road is our very own private beach with stunning views of the private, spring-fed lake!
Behind the home are several thousand acres of beautiful woods. The grounds are naturally landscaped (no gardens in the front:)) with exposed ledge and all that nature can provide. The back yard also has a large fire pit, deck and is definitely rocky and woody (traverse carefully:)) Although we share this private oasis with a few other camp owners, this serene setting is everything you can ask for to relax and renew the spirit.
Just outside of your bedroom is a porch area that you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine, a cup of coffee, or anything else that is legal in the great state of Maine! We supply you with coffee, tea and a welcome basket upon your arrival and your refrigerator will be stocked with cold water. The barn door you enter your room from has a lock for your privacy and convenience. There are a few unique and wonderful art pieces in your room for you to enjoy. Please respect them.
There’s nothing like living on the lake! If you feel adventurous enough to kayak or paddle board, we would be happy to arrange those items for you. Please give us a 24 hour advance notice. There are hiking trials throughout Maine and there are even a few close to the house.
If the ocean is your thing, then take the short drive to Belfast. Belfast is a beautiful coastal town with a lot of “groovy” energy. Fantastic dining, schooner trips, park events, fishing trips and hiking trails all on the ocean! We are located only 30 minutes from the coastal town of Camden and 45 minutes from the coastal town of Rockland! There are non-stop events in the summer to enjoy all along the coast. Day trips to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are a must and are only 53 miles and 58 miles respectively.

Since we are located in a serene thickly wooded area, access to cable/satellite/wireless internet is not available. However, your room has a large TV and we’ve supplied you with a Blue Ray player and a few choices of movies. If you have a particular genera in mind, we might have it and would be happy to let you view them in your room.
- Smoking is only allowed outdoors. Please respect our home. We do not allow access to the rest of the house. The tree house is not accessible to guests. Please let us know if you would like a fire in either one of the fire pits (this is also depended upon availability of dry wood and kindling wood) and we'll be happy to start one up for you.
- We don't go to bed very early in the summer, but would appreciate not having much loud activity past 11 PM. Thanks
We are definitely sociable and don’t mind interacting with our guest over wine or whatever, but completely understand if you just want time to yourself to enjoy the beautiful, peaceful surroundings that defines Maine.
I consider myself an active person, completely in love with nature. I'm a Speech Pathologist by trade but if I could figure out how to make a living traveling; I would in a heartbeat! I love to read spiritual and self help books and I dig Motown, Classic Rock and world music. My favorite food is.....wait for it.....seafood! After all, I live in a place that has the best seafood in the country!
