Overview

Photos and Description of the Islesboro vacation barn rental

Barn, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The Red House was farmhouse for a working farm from the late 1800s until the mid 1900s. Miss Grace, the daughter of the founder of WR Grace- a specialty building supply company- bought the 100 acre point of land where the Red House now is. Miss Grace built a large summer house on the point and a red farm house at the beginning of the peninsula to supply her and those who worked for her their food and flowers.

The Red House barn used to house the beef and milk cows, the sheep, and the hay and corn silage for the animals. The chicken coop was (and still is) behind the farm house. The vegetable garden was (and still is) in front of the farmhouse. The farm supplied Miss Grace, her house and garden “help” and the crew of her 100-foot yacht with fresh milk, butter, eggs and vegetables daily and freshly-butchered chickens 2 or 3 times a week .

The Red House Barn was made into the beautiful apartment that it is now in 1984. It looks out over the field that used to pasture the animals to Seal Cove where Big Tree Beach and Boating offers any age sailing and navigation instruction and a wonderful beach for swimming. The Bonnie Lynn, a 50-foot schooner, with her captains- Earl and Bonnie- is available for charter there.

Behind the Red House there is a short walking trail to the shore which faces west- an ideal spot for picnics and sunset-watching.

This is a idyllic serene spot, a bird-watcher and nature-lovers paradise. There are also opportunities to sail, hike, play tennis, eat ice cream, and explore the island culture and beauties.

Sorry no pets.
