Bivalve is an excellent property and location for a quiet week of renewal. After a rainy early summer in Maine, our week was mostly sunny. We visited some of our favorite Down East sites, but spent many hours on the screened porch, reading, talking, and staring at Herrick Bay. A Belted Kingfisher appeared the morning we departed to bid us farewell and invite us to return.

We had a lovely time at this cabin! All the amenities listed were there and the cabin as a whole was very clean. The view from the porch was stunning at sunset and there are many other shore locations and hiking trails near by to check out as well

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bivalve. The location was quiet, quaint and beautiful. The amenities were clearly described and we had all we needed to enjoy this retreat. Our only complaint would be lack of comfortable seating, with just one small couch to relax on for a family of 4. Overall, we had a great time!

We enjoyed our stay at the Bivalve Cottage SO MUCH! It was every bit as beautiful and homey as described. I would say that the cabin felt more spacious than the pictures showed, there was privacy for the bathroom and bedrooms. The cottage had all the amenities of home, including washer/dryer, paper products, fully stocked kitchen dishes, utensils, spices, board games, puzzles, etc. The owner provided a wonderful summary of all the things that we would need to know about the cabin, and then some! Some of things that weren't included in the description were the urban firepit. We had several nice campfires while we were there. We enjoyed the quiet setting and we could watch the sunrise AND sunset from the beautiful screenporch everyday. One item that I would like to point out is that this is not a good location for swimming. It was, however, the most perfect location for digging clams and finding mussels. We had several nights of freshly foraged seafood. Another item that I would also point out is that this cottage is pretty far removed from much tourism and/or stores and shops. This was a major advantage for us...as we thoroughly enjoyed the quiet and nature. But it's not an ideal location if you were hoping for evening ice cream cones...it would take about a 20 minute drive to get there. We had a wonderful time. Our teenage boys didn't want to leave. We loved this place so much, and appreciate Terry for sharing such a lovely cottage.

I can't say enough how much I loved our stay in Brooklin. It was so peaceful and I loved being at the waters edge. The screened in porch was amazing. I loved waking up with a view of the water. The kitchen was very well equipped for cooking meals. So many fun daytrips nearby. Feeling very well rested. Hope to return someday!

This was our second year staying at the Bivalve. It was perfectly quiet and relaxing. The eagles, osprey, king fisher, pipers and seagulls were the best entertainment while viewing from the screened porch. This quaint and charming cottage is clean and well equipped with everything you need. My favorite is the refreshing outdoor shower! We hope to return again.
