Having spent my childhood summers in Brooklin it was like going home. Our visit to the Bivalve was the perfect getaway. We embraced the peacefulness and solitude of this cottage which had everything we needed. Lots of time spent watching various seabirds and the changing of the tides. Very hard to leave. Simply the best! We’ve booked it for next summer.

We had an amazing time. It was a peaceful getaway that was perfect for my girls. They had a great time with all the board games. The view was amazing and we spotted eagles, cormorants, terns, plovers, rails, and osprey perched on the rocks. Overall a very fun experience for us all.

Our family of four spent a week in August at the Bivalve. It was just what we needed, quiet and away from the crowds but accessible to everything we wanted to see. Close to Acadia & Little Deer Isle. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were comfortable. The outdoor shower was fantastic. Washer/dryer and dishwasher were very appreciated in a rustic camp like this. Groceries were 20 min away in Blue Hill. Even though we went during the busiest time of the year, we felt we had the whole coast of Maine to ourselves in this location!

very well laid out, no frills small cabin. A lot of well appointed amenities for a small place. The wifi was strong and the laundry and dish washer were well used. The porch views are great and the kids loved playing on the huge rock at the tide extremes and searching for crabs. The sea water is cold even in August. Not much room in the yard or shore for small kids to roam free though. Brooklin is a great nearby small town with a general store.

This little cabin with an extremely well stocked kitchen was a perfect base of operations for our stay in Brooklin and classes at tge Wooden Boat School. You can’t beat the screened porch.

I fell in love with Maine while staying at the Bivalve! Everything was great and Terry had accommodations set up perfectly for our comfort. We will definitely be back!

We had a great time staying at the Bivalve. The location was perfect for the course I was taking at the WBS. The evenings were enjoyed on the screened in porch & the access to water was great for a couple of paddles and swims.

We spent a great week at this very nice and calm cabin beside the bay. The cabin is very comfortable and has everything that is require to have a great moment. The owner also provided a great list of activities and places to do and visit. My 9 years daughter was crying when we were leaving, she wanted to move there!!!

Checking in and out and cleaning both need improvement. Otherwise a very nice quiet place with beautiful scenery.

We loved our stay at the Bivalve. The house is cozy and has a beautiful view over Herrick Bay. Terry, the owner, is very responsive and the house is well maintained.
