Overview

About the property

Farmhouse, 6 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This Saltwater Farmhouse is a classic 130+ year-old clapboard house with attached barn on 80 private acres, including woods and a hay field gently sloping to the rocky Maine coast. Reminders of its days as a working farm can be found in the carefully maintained barn, including stalls and antique farm equipment. The farm equipment is displayed in the barn with safety fencing to protect small curious visitors. Bicycles of all sizes, ping-pong, croquet, badminton and lawns large enough for soccer and baseball games will provide plenty of 'at home' activities. Cooking out can be on the deck or a short walk to grill on the rocks.

Located on St. George Peninsula between the fishing villages of Tenants Harbor and Pt.Clyde, you are only a short distance from popular restaurants, kayaking, fishing, sailing, hiking, beaches, movie theaters, antique & novelty shops, Marshall Point Lighthouse, which was seen in the movie Forrest Gump, and ferries to nearby scenic islands. In nearby Rockland, the Farnsworth Museum with its collection of Wyeth paintings , is well worth a visit.

The farmhouse has 6 bedrooms, so there's plenty of room for family & friends.The dining room seats 10-12 for fun family dinners. The living room's lovely natural light make this a cozy room for quiet reading by the fireplace. A forced air furnace keeps you warm on cool Maine evenings. The back deck is just the place to begin your day, as you look across the hayfield to the ocean. Watch the local lobstermen as they check out their traps, then head into town to pick up fresh lobster for dinner.

The farmhouse can be your base as you explore the beautiful state of Maine, including Acadia Park to the north and Freeport with infamous L.L.Bean's to the south.

Tenant Harbor and Pt. Clyde areas are beautiful in scenic views and ocean/fishing activities. Ferry trips to the islands offer a different landscape and glimpse into island life. We love the quiet peaceful times on the farm , reading by the fire, playing games or sorting out puzzles, walks to the ocean and cookouts on the rocks.
