Brooklin is located in Hancock County in Downeast Maine, near the town of Blue Hill. Like many of the other small villages in the area, Brooklin began as a fishing village, and today is known as the wooden boat-building capital of Maine. Brooklin is a very historic place, and several of the original buildings of the town are still in use today. Sitting high on a bluff, this quaint town has beautiful views overlooking the Eggemoggin Reach, and has sailing, fishing, kayaking, hiking and biking opportunities. It is home to the WoodenBoat School where you can watch students learning to make and restore traditional wooden boats, and visit the boathouse where wooden pleasure crafts of every kind can be viewed. Brooklin is also home to the Maine Coast Experience, where you can arrange for a whale-watching expedition or a sea-kayaking tour. Other things to do in the Brooklin area include antiquing and exploring other nearby fishing villages, including Blue Hill, with all its art galleries, shops and restaurants. The Acadia National Forest/Bar Harbor area is just a 45-minute drive from Brooklin.
