Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
About Dan Brooks
I am originally from Orland (two houses away) and am now living back in Orland in my ancestral property. I am now retired from the corporate world and spend my time working on the property, as well as my Bangor home.
Dan Brooks purchased this Cottage in 1987
Why Dan Brooks chose Orland
I grew up 2 houses away and delivered papers to the owners as a kid. When the property became available, I knew I wanted it! Since the house needed 'everything', I decided to gut it to the shell and start over -- thus the pics display the finished product.
What makes this Cottage unique
peace, quiet and relaxation
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
This was the perfect location for us for the sites that we wanted to visit. Everything we needed for our stay was readily available. Dan met us soon after we arrived and gave us information on things to see in the area. We would stay here again if we are in this area in the future.
Cute cottage close to Castine (Maine Maritime Academy) and about 1 hr from Acadia
We loved our stay at the Riverhouse! What a view! Our only regret was the lack of time we had to spend there. We flew in to attend our son's graduation ceremony at MMA. Dan was very accommodating getting the house ready so early in the season and providing extensive area info which we found to be very helpful. Cell coverage in the area is spotty, so we found the WIFI and cable at the Riverhouse essential. The kitchen, stocked with some basics, allowed us to do some cooking which was important since, being early in the season, there were not many area establishments open yet. Only one caution: The bedrooms, being upstairs, requires one to be able to use some steep stairs so if stairs are a problem this would not be for you. As a couple, with an adult child we found The Riverhouse to be perfect and would love to return!
Awesome Place !
This house belonged to my grandmother many years ago and has been totally renovated. The area is beautiful and brought back many memories. The owner was very helpful and pleasant. Looking forward to going again !
We loved being a little bit removed from the rat race. Very relaxing.
DAN Brooks truly made us comfortable. He was so gracious. Helped with places to visit and a wealth of information. Very enjoyable
Perfect in every way!
Outstanding customer service, would definitely stay again😀
Quiet & quaint!
This quiet & quaint locale was perfect for visiting Maine attractions by car. We enjoyed lovely drives, delicious lobster & gorgeous coastline daily, plus amazing Acadia National Park. The Riverhouse has stairs with two bedrooms up and the bathroom down. Owner Dan is pleasant & helpful.
