O Espaço

One room cabin. Perfect for one to two guests.
Also has a pull out couch for extra guests.

About the rental--
Enjoy Coastal Maine in a lovely post-and beam cabin situated at the heart of the Valley of Stars organic farm.
The cabin consists of a loft (sleeps two) and an adjoining dining and living space. There is a pull out couch in this space that could accommodate another guest. The cabin is fully furnished with towels, linens, cutlery and kitchen items. It has a small fridge, gas stove, and running hot and cold water. There are outdoor showers with hot and cold water, and an outdoor composting toilet.
The loft is accessible by a somewhat steep ladder so keep this in mind if you bring children.
The cabin is private but located on a working farm. This rental is ideal for those who want to be in active and enlivening surroundings!

About the farm--
The Valley of the Stars Farm is home to the world class wood-fired Tinder Hearth Bakery. Svetlana, our oven, is one of the largest wood-fired ovens on the east coast. The bakery and oven were designed and hand made by devoted bakers, musicians and carpenters, a true community effort created with a tremendous amount of love. Our bakery supplies many local stores with sourdough, spelt, french batard, rye, and whole grain breads and croissants, all made with the finest organic ingredients.
Tinder Hearth Bakery also bakes wood-fired pizzas. Pizza night falls on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday evenings from 5 - 8. It is wise during July and August to order ahead by calling the bakery. This popular local take-out scene is an opportunity for you not to have to cook and enjoy a delicious, wholesome meal!

Valley of the Stars Farm is an active farm. You will be staying at a place that starts up early. Our gardener, also our community herbalist Rachel Randall, grows medicinal herbs and flowers which are used for her apothecary and herbal formulas, she has a wonderful business called Meristem Herb Co.

I run Lake Larsson's School of Ukulele here. You are more than welcome to try a class or private ukulele lesson.

During the summer we host monthly Open Mic nights in the barn. People from all around come and perform.

Local opportunities and adventures--
The Ocean (10-15 min walk, 5 min drive): ocean swimming is minutes away. There is a row boat to use and local wildlife (including seals) abounds!

BKS Iyengar Yoga Center studio (5 min walk): this studio is very spacious and beautiful; you can walk to yoga classes!
Owner and director Kim Peralta was introduced to the Iyengar method in 1987 by the late senior Iyengar teacher Mary Dunn. She began training in India under B.K.S. Iyengar and the Iyengar family in 1989, and has taught the Iyengar method for twenty-four years. There are plenty of beginner classes for those who love yoga.

Organic farming:
For those interested in organic farming, Elliot Coleman's world famous Four Seasons Farm as well as the Scott and Ellen Neering Good Life Center are a short drive away. Our next door neighbors run a goat farm producing lovely creamy cheeses and goat milk. They host a summer movie series in their barn.

Other day trips:
Opportunities for sailing and sea kayaking as well as pottery studios, art galleries, and farmers markets are all close by.
Acadia National Park is a short 50 min jaunt away. We are also 25 minutes from the fishing village of Stonington, one of Maines largest fishing towns and the heart of the Maine lobster industry.

The night sky is phenomenal. The town of Brooksville has a category 3 sky and is fabulous for stargazing. I have deep sky binoculars which are available for use on the property.

We are 4 miles from Buck's Harbor, which boasts a deep harbor, town marina, Yacht Club, a general store and Bucks restaurant which serves wonderful dinners with ingredients from local farms.

Brooksville is bounded on the west by Penobscot Bay, on the north and east by the Bagaduce River (a tidal estuary), and on the south by the famous sailing waters of Eggemoggin Reach. It is nearly an island, with just two slim land bridges to the rest of the mainland, and 54 miles of shoreline. This gives it a protected, insular quality beloved by summer and year-round residents alike.

The coastal town of Blue Hill (20 min drive) has shops, restaurants, cafes, art galleries, a supermarket, gas stations, a hospital, banks, etc. On summer nights the Blue Hill Waterfront Town Park hosts weekly street dances under the stars with Flash in the Pans, the area's long-standing community steel drum band.

The Blue Hill Peninsula is home to the chamber music venue Kneisal Hall, the Stonington Opera House and the Grand Auditorium, offering concerts featuring international artists in everything from Shakespeare productions to live classical, folk, jazz, rock, and world music performances.

Brooksville and its surrounding area is a great vacation spot with so much to do. If you would like to try staying in a rural community setting in a top notch cabin this is the place for you. We look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you soon!

Lake's cabin had everything our family needed for a quiet Maine getaway. We were able to do day hikes in Acadia and return to this cozy cabin. We cooked a delicious dinner and enjoyed the warmth of the wood stove. At bedtime we all snuggled in the loft. Lake's cabin has tons of charm and my family loved being there! The Olivers

This cabin is so cute and cozy! Right outside is a beautiful field and view of the vegetable/flower garden. It was so wonderful to sit out there with a cup of coffee in the morning and listen to the sounds of nature. And pizza night!!! OMG. The woodfire pizzas were incredible and the atmosphere could not be beat. We sat under the stars at candlelit tables and enjoyed one of the best meals of our lives. The outdoor bathroom and shower were a fun experience, we loved the outdoor shower!

My wife and I loved our stay at Lake's cabin. The cabin is cozy and comfortable. Her and her family were extremely welcoming. We loved the pastries, bread and pizza! Also the row boat was a lot of fun to take out for a ride. Brooksville is a great location to explore lots of different places in the area. Also the outdoor bathroom and shower should not discourage you from visiting.

This place is simply fantastic. The area is extremely peaceful, morning and night. The cottage feels very private, despite the bakery next door. It's cozy, and just enough for 2 to get away and enjoy each other and their surroundings. We spent the day exploring the area, which is absolutely beautiful. At night we enjoyed delicious pizza from Tinder Hearth. In the morning we ate their pastries, which were unforgettable. The outdoor shower is hot and perfect. The toilets were completely fine as well. There's a sink to wash up, and they're very private. The bed is comfy in a loft that's very inviting. I highly recommend!

Hello my name is Lake and I run a Ukulele School here on the coast of Maine. I own a 24 acre farm built in the late 1800's.
My farm is called Valley of Stars Farm and it is home to various bakers musicians and gardeners who work and live here all of whom are delightful. I am a former bass player and bandleader who worked in the music business for many years, playing blues and jazz with wonderful musicians like Pine Top Perkins, Bo Diddley, Big Mama Thornton and so on.
Now I teach ukulele and work here on the farm and care for my mother who is 90 and lives here as well.
I have opened my farm up to many young people to come and work on projects they love and my son has done the same with the bakery. It is an active environment humble and always an ongoing work in progress. I enjoy traveling which I do not do much of these days, yoga, teaching music, orchids, art, gardening, astronomy,watching foreign movies and old English detective shows.
