Welcome to Brooklin
Brooklin is renowned for being the “Boat Building Capital of the world with businesses such as the Brooklin Boat Yard, Atlantic Boat, Wooden Boat School, and the Wooden Boat Magazine as some of the local establishments that draw visitors to this area year-round. In addition to the home where EB White wrote much of Charlotte's Web, the Brooklin Boat Yard is now run by his grandson which plays an integral part in the annual Eggemoggin Reach Regatta. Recently the New Yorker’s Roger Angell wrote this story about finding Brooklin which only further illustrates the unique aspects of Brooklin.
This maritime town is a community rich with boat builders, artists, writers, musicians, and potters in an authentic, and bucolic coastal retreat is located outside of the heavily trafficked and congested destinations that summer visitors to Maine often flock to.
Brooklin is a destination unto itself for those who desire nature, brilliant night skies, and radiant light shifting colors from sunrise to dusk and sunset. In every season, you truly feel away from it all while surrounded by world-class dining, fine art galleries, and unparalleled outdoor recreational activities while still close to destinations like the Blue Hill Peninsula, Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, Historic Fort Knox, Penobscot Narrows Bridge, Stonington Harbor, and The Bold Coast of Down East Maine. In Brooklin, you get the best of both worlds.
