Gouldsboro cottage description

Mandala Farm’s cottage is built as a traditional timber frame. The cottage has one bedroom with a queen size bed, sitting room with a futon and a single bed, and a pull out couch in the living room. The bathroom has a tub and washer/dryer, there is a large sitting area with sofa bed, dining area and kitchen. Two French doors open from the sitting area onto a porch with a large deck with a grill. The porch overlooks the farm and Jones Pond. The cottage is located on our 100 acre organic farm. It is secluded from the hustle and bustle of farm life, but still overlooks the fields, pastures, gardens and beautiful Jones Pond. Guests are welcome to explore the farm and visit our animals which include: Norwegian Fjord draft horses, cashmere goats, sheep, chickens, cows, and pigs. We use our horses to plow and cultivate the gardens, pull wagons and bring in the hay. We also raise foals each year who are usually playing in the fields near the cottage.

                    We had a great week in this cottage with our three year old. The cottage is very attractive and well maintained. Our son loved pumping water for "our" cow Annabel who grazed right outside the door and spent many hours sitting on the tractors. We spent a couple days at the farm - walking down to the pond and feeding the animals - and several days visiting acadia, bar harbour, blue hill, etc. Very relazing vacation!

                    If I tell you how great it is at Mandala Farm, they might be too busy when we want to go back, but it's too good to keep it a secret! What a terrific place! I can't remember the last time we were so relaxed as a family. The owners of Mandala Farm are really wonderful. They were so nice and showed us around and were extremely helpful without ever being intrusive. This is a rare opportunity to enjoy the old-fashioned family vacation you've dreamed about. We drive 6 hours from Massachusetts and it's worth every second. The cottage is really a timber framed small house with a loft. It's cozy and lovely. It's rustic in appearance, but with the amenities of comfortable beds, a large bathroom and full kitchen. There's no cable TV, which for us is a blessing in disguise. They do supply some DVDs and VHS tapes. We found ourselves enjoying the games and cards they have there. We found ourselves interacting more with less TV. (Though I have to confess to hitting the Red Box in Ellsworth [DVD only]). There's no internet within the cottage which, I find fantastic as I sometimes find it difficult to unplug. :) If you really need it, they have it on the farm porch and McDonald's in Ellsworth has free wifi. Schoodic Point is a short drive and is one of the most picturesque parts of the Bar Harbor area. Bar Harbor itself isn't far either. This is the area for Maine Lobster! The cottage has a big pot if you're looking to enjoy some while you're there. We found some in Millbridge but there's many places to buy them. Our family is really looking forward to the next time we visit.

                    What a vacation! We are a group of students from Canada who were looking for a place to get away, relax and catch up on some work. Well we found relaxation but didn't get that much work done! The owners were incredibly welcoming, allowing us to wander their farm freely, we were even able to walk right up to the horses. Our privacy was respected and if we needed anything we knew we could walk up to the main house and ask for anything. At the end of the week we did not want to leave, we hope we have chance to go to this cottage again!

                    Recommended for: Families with teenagers, sightseeing, romantic getaway, families with young children, girls getaway, adventure seekers.

                    Just got home from a wonderful stay at this cottage in Maine. The cottage is charming, the view spectacular and the atmosphere relaxing. Close enough to Bar Harbor to make a day trip but far enough away to avoid the crowds entirely. Good restaurants close by or buy lobster from local fisherman and cook at the cottage. A trip to Schoodic peninsula is a must. All around pleasant experience.
