Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms

Originally built in the late 1700's this post and beam home was solidly built from hand hewn timbers upon a field stone granite foundation. Beginning 1800's a second cape style home was added on to the original colonial house, expanding it into a very unique and large country home. This combination allowed for large, cozy bedrooms with spacious closets.

The entire home was completely remodeled in 2009 including the addition of another 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom area in the main floor. The total living space is over 4300 sq. ft., sitting on 3 beautiful acres overlooking gorgeous Maine countryside.

The Main house has 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms with a large Country Kitchen, Laundry, Family/Living Room, Screened Sunporch and Large Loft Area.

Why Yolindi de Gouveia chose Standish

Beautifully Furnished with all modern amenities. Enjoy a piece of Maine history. Close to Great Outlet shopping in Freeport Maine, including the famous LL Bean Store. Downtown Portland is only 25 min away with amazing shopping, ferry boat rides, Parks, restaurants. North Conway is an hour away with duty free shopping, skiing, and great sight seeing opportunities.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We have taken great lengths to restore this old house and maintain it's natural charm. We have carefully accented this with great furniture, to ensure that you will have an unforgettable stay at our house on Bonny Eagle Road.

The entire house has been refurnished in gorgeous Vintage Maine Style furniture and all new beds and mattresses, along with wonderful linens. For winter we have purchased new flannel sheets for extra sleeping comfort. Our latest upgrade of an on demand hot water system for the entire house is also a wonderful benefit for our guests, ensuring plenty of hot water for your entire group!

We are constantly upgrading or adding (like a new comfy living room set) some nice new kitchen gadget or new balls for summer play. We take pride in our home, and want you to have a memorable experience in our beautiful Maine home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We hosted our wedding on the farmhouse property, and we couldn't imagine having a more perfect experience. From our initial contact with Yolindi, to the date of checkout, we had great (and clear) communication that has been friendly and informative. Planning a wedding is usually one of the most stressful experiences in life, but by choosing to host our wedding here, we managed to have a warm, wonderful time without a glimmer of headache or disruption. The house was also a wonder: perfect for hosting our immediate families, fully stocked for last minute food preparation, and a calming retreat for the stresses of our big day. Truly, our experience is one that we will never forget, and we would gladly recommend this space to anyone.

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a great time a the farmhouse - plenty of space for entertaining the 15 guests and everyone even had a bed. Quiet and relaxing weekend. Plus its a short commute to everything downtown Portland has to offer. Highly recommended and would love to visit in the warmer months.

Great location for family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The layout of the house was great for us - each "family section" had their own wing, with the large kitchen, dining area, and family room as a common area. The yard is huge, and the kids loved running around and exploring. The kitchen had everything we needed. Great time.

Great time In September!

  • 4 of 5

Farmhouse was well equipped. There was tons of room-both inside and outside for all the children to run and play. Comfortable beds and plenty of bathrooms for all the families. 2 kitchens to prepare and serve meals was a big plus.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a family wedding at Bonny Eagle Pond . Being able to have some of the guest stay at the farm house was great. The pictures don't do the house justice. Very comfortable and clean . Washer and dryer a big plus. The property is beautiful and we'll maintained. We would definitely rent from Yolindi again.
