Vinalhaven farmhouse description

A beautiful 150-year old saltwater farm surrounded by acres of fields and woods with thousands of feet of shorefront on a tranquil cove.

The perfect setting to go kayaking and canoeing for an active day on the water, to go bicycling and explore the island or Vinalhaven town, to go hiking, or to go swimming in either the salt water or nearby fresh water granite quarries (one two miles away the other four miles distant). You may also want to swim in the warm (for coastal Maine) saltwater cove behind the house, pick berries, or explore the woods on the nearby trails.

Or else just relax on the back porch with a book and a view over the wildflowers and cove and watch the ospreys diving for fish.

There is a 5 BR main house with 3 baths, a guesthouse with 1 BR and a 6-bed bunkroom that kids love.

There is also large barn attached to the guesthouse that is a great setting for a rainy day kids activities such as ping-pong, painting, and there's a big swing hanging off the rafters.

The main house has a full kitchen with equipment for lobster, pies or anything else you might want to create from the delicious local seafood, produce and berries. A huge dining room has a table that expands to seat all of your extended family and gets great views of the cove and fields. A cozy living room has a stereo and TV with dvd player, and is a great place for a late night board game or a rainy day movie.

There is a master bedroom with king size bed and bathroom downstairs. Upstairs features 2 full bathrooms with and 2 bedrooms with queen-sized beds, 1 room with twin singles, and 1 room with a single and Futon bed. A back staircase allows privacy between the 'North' and 'South' upstairs rooms.

The guesthouse features a spacious sitting/dining area with high ceilings with great views over the fields and cove. Theres a full kitchen with great views over the fields and cove.
There is 1 BR with a queen-sized bed and a great bunk-room with 3 bunk-beds and 6 beds.

The guesthouse can be rented separately if desired.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1959

                          About the owner: I live in Hong Kong and own the property with my brother who lives in Texas. For my children, its a long trip every year, but the highlight of our summer by far!

                          Why the Owner Chose Vinalhaven:
                          Our parents bought the house in 1959 on their first trip down the Maine Coast when they fell in love with Vinalhaven and the property.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                          Gather some clams and mussels for your dinner at lowtide near the backyard, while enjoying berries for dessert which you've picked in the fields off the front yard!
