Brookeville Retreat (East Braintree)

Relax, rejuvenate and even get creative at Brookville Retreat!

This cozy retreat offers guests four small cottages to rent and countless adventures nearby, but the main attraction is the chance to slow down for a bit, unwind, and enjoy the tranquillity of the cottage. Both a nature retreat and writer’s retreat, this is where you can go to reconnect with yourself, family and friends, and nature while being inspired by the natural charm of the area.

Each cottage is named after a place or book (such as A Passage to India, Out of Africa) and is tastefully decorated. The accommodations offer a quaint atmosphere that is sure to relax you while still having modern amenities like heat and air conditioning; in the shared spaces, there is a full kitchen to cook your food, a private refrigerator, and a shared washroom with a shower and a comfy sitting room.
