Wonderful 200-year old saltwater farm is located on a dead end road with little traffic. The farmhouse has been updated, but retains most of its period charm. The estate consists of 56 acres with frontage on Montsweag and Brookings Bays. A combination of open fields and wooded areas contains over two miles of private trails for hiking and cross country skiing. Tidal bays offer 2/3 tide access for kayaking, canoeing, sailing, and fishing.
During warmer months a large woodshed (studio) provides an area for socializing, dining, and entertaining. The woodshed provides views of open fields and Montsweag Bay. Abundant wildlife and woodlands add to the enjoyment of "The Farm".

Beautiful location ~
We had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday on the farm. The property has so much charm and character. The communication with the host, Catherine, was excellent. It was chilly outside but the house stayed warm. There are some areas that need a little TLC but nothing that impacted our stay. We'd love to come back in the summer!
Lovely period-piece property, in a beautiful quiet area
This is a delightful property. We really enjoyed our stay here - 4 adults, 3 kids. It has plenty of character and lots of wonderful old books and photos around the house. It doesn't have the most modern appliances (wi-fi, washing machine, dishwasher) but if you are looking for a peaceful place to get away from it all, I would highly recommend it. Also it's close to Bath and Reid State Park so lots of exploring is possible.
Quaint and relaxing get-away
My three teenage children and my husband really enjoyed staying here. We enjoyed time at the water fishing and taking in the scenery. The house was a perfect fit for our family. The kitchen was well stocked and it had everything we needed
We enjoyed time at Popham Beach which was about a 40 minute drive. It was so nice and we enjoyed walking out the sandbar to the island. On our way back we would stop for lobster that we cooked back at the house.
The house was very clean and quaint. It was a nice get away! Our son enjoyed fishing down at the water though the bugs were relentless! Be sure to bring lots of bug repellent even though I do not think it helped much.
Thank you very much for the time at your home! We enjoyed reading and learning the history.
Charming property in a great location.
It's a bit rustic, but a beautiful property. Very peaceful and close to Bath and Wicassett. 30 minutes from an outstanding beach at Popham State Park.
I would certainly recommend it.
Beautiful home, rich in history and so much to offer!
The listing doesn't do this beautiful property justice! This home is wonderfully kept and with such attention to detail as comfortable bedding to create a perfect ambience for a lovely Maine vacation! The beautiful property and trails surrounding the house give you hours of things to do! The rich history adds to the ambience. There are hidden treasures everywhere! The central location is perfect for day trips and we can't say enough about this place. We plan to come back! Thank you for everything!!
Our own little piece of paradise with rich history
Where do I even begin?? I have so many wonderful memories of our stay at the Farm.
My family and I spent Labor Day weekend at the DeWick Farm. It was nothing short of AMAZING! The Phipps Point area was wonderful, lush and full of woods with houses quietly tucked away in their midst. The was no shortage of privacy at all in this amazing area. There was also a great amount to do right outside the house. We spent a few days down by the river fishing while the kids hunted around for "creatures". The kids absolutely loved it! There is so much space surrounding you and not a soul in sight... at night you can see billions of stars (yes, billions!) and hear the animals communicating to each other in the woods. As far as interactions with neighbors or traffic, well, the occasional car driving past the house was considered the Farm's "traffic", lol... and of the few cars that did pass, not one went by without a wave and a friendly smile.
The home itself is a very special place. Full of memories and pictures, being in there you can vividly imagine what it must have been like more than half a century earlier. The home is in great shape, Catherine and her family have maintained it beautifully. We felt lucky to be able to stay in such a beautiful, historic home.
My family and I were very sad to have to leave, for the short time we were there it truly felt like home. We made memories there that will last a lifetime. Before we even arrived Catherine made us feel at home. Once there we were able to meet Catherine and her family. They were all such wonderful, kind spirited people and we feel fortunate to have met them.
If you're looking for privacy and a home located in a pristine setting, this is the home for you!
Thank you to the DeWick/Johnson family.
All the best,
P.S. - Catherine, I've listened to your advice and my entire linen closet reminds me of your home in Maine! :)
