Newly renovated and charming 1850 farmhouse and adjacent original barn overlooking the Benjamin River.; four miles from the Brooklin Inn, the Brooklin General store, and library.
Benjamin River is a small protected harbor full of wooden sailing craft. There is a public launching raft across the harbor.
The waterfront has a set of shore steps and can be reached by walking through the pasture at the back of the house until you reach an access road which will lead you there, about 1/4 mile walk. The “beach” is gravel, a few rocks by shore.
At high tide a kayak can be brought to bottom of steps, otherwise it would be carried out to the tide line.
