The Space

Featured in this September's Downeast Magazine, Brooksville, Maine and our beach road!

As a guest said, "We LOVED this place! Rustic in appearance only - in fact the beds are comfy, the hot water plentiful, the porch screened and the lounge room upstairs is lovely. Gas stove and microwave. Both the porch and lounge look across a meadow. The whole area is quiet and beautiful. We would return here without hesitation. In fact, if we're in the area again, we fully intend to! Good for couples or families. Enjoy! "

Aunt Mary's is a summer, rustic cabin, on the Historic Captain Wasson Home property.

The most beautiful waterfront land in Brooksville, farmed by our own family for generations, surrounded by water and two private beaches on our organic farm, make this cabin one of the finest in the area.

Our farm is exactly as it has been for the past 180 years. It reminds me of life as it was before all the hassles of modern day life. The air is clear, the birds and flowers fill your eyes and ears and the water and salt air make sleeping so peaceful. The water is full of every kind of boat imaginable. Directly across from the Castine Yacht Club, the sounds of the bell buoys and the starting gun for the days race, the Like Nantucket years ago, Brooksville is held in time, a truly amazing place.

  • We had a great stay. It's our first airbnb experience, so we didn't to be a totally remote rural barn converted house. It's not a traditional hotel as one would expected. But we absolutely loved our stay. The scenery is just breathtaking. The little barn converted house is just charming. We even found a working 1920s' Edison C-20 model turnable. Talking to the owner, and found out that their ancestors were settling in the region in 1770s. Make sure you talk to Dick. He has a great experience to share.

  • Excellent rustic cabin in a beautiful setting! We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Aunt Mary's Cabin. Great for families with small children.

  • Aunt Mary's Cabin was recommended to us (5 women in our 60's). It was perfect for our group with two bedrooms and a couple of choices for an extra bed in the living room. Two bathrooms helped, especially one with a shower and no shortage of hot water. A nice sized kitchen where we could sit around the table when we were not sitting in the screened in porch. We were only there at night because of the many day activities we planned, and it was comfortable sleeping even without air conditioning. A good location for exploring cute little towns and doing some hiking. Our hosts were helpful whenever we had questions. We would recommend this cabin as rustic with two very comfy beds and plenty of room to sit and visit.

  • This is a fabulous place. So fun, comfortable...and so Maine! The location is awesome. You can walk down the road to water, the outlook from the windows and porch are beautiful. You have everything you need...the description is perfect. The only thing is that the internet connection is not good. I found a rock outside that I could sit on. That's the only thing I'd ask help on. The hosts are wonderful, there if you need them and living their own lives when you don't. No TV...but a bunch a movies that even kept my 22 year old happy at night. a great selection. I'll be back for sure.

  • The cabin was a great relaxing get-away for 5 days. It's rural location is perfect for unwinding, with a small kitchen and screened in porch overlooking a field. I would definitely recommend for a small family or two couples.

  • For our first trip to Maine, our experience here was exactly what we had hoped for--beautiful scenery, quiet, rustic yet comfortable, off the beaten path but still within driving distance to several small towns along the coast and other hidden gems.

    Carol is a great host! You have all the privacy you want although she was so pleasant we had her over for some wine and conversation! The cabin has everything you would need if you are looking for a place to unplug from the rest of the world.

    We loved our stay here and have recommended to friends seeking a similar experience. The Maine coast is so beautiful and I can't imagine going back and not staying at Aunt Mary's Cabin.

  • A beautiful place and very responsive, friendly and relaxed host. The cabin is exactly how it is described: semi-rustic, independent, and in a wonderful part of the Maine coast - exactly what we were looking for. Thanks!

  • If you're looking for a cute, peaceful, semi-rustic get a way on the Maine country side this is a great spot. More than enough space for two people, and 4 or 5 would still be comfortable. All the appliances worked well and the cabin's up-keep was in great condition. Carol and Dick were the best "neighbors" we could have asked for (giving us all the privacy and quiet we wanted, and then eager and excited to help when approached). Several small towns are within reasonable driving distance with grocery stores, antique shops and plenty of lobster spots. Deer Isle, with plenty of tourism activities, is also within a reasonable drive. We took a wonderful hike on near by Cape Rosier. There are two calm gravel beaches within a 7 minute walk (we were the only people on both beaches when we were there). Not having air conditioning was pretty rough during the midday heatwave (we were there for an unusually hot week), but Carol provided 4 fans and we made do. The nights were incredible. Fantastic sunsets, stars and cool ocean breezes made for refreshing ends to our days. It's no resort, but for what we wanted it was perfect.

About
We have a lovely family farm and like having guests visit. We are in the main house but offer rooms weekly or by the day. Our life is full of nature and gardening. We love to sail and have family visit. Our home is full of many memories and reminds us of our family that lived there when all were sea captains. This farm was Captain Wasson's and our Aunt Mary's. The land is organic and we have two donkeys and ten sheep. Our chickens and garden is abundant and blueberries fill the fields.
