About the Property

Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Rusticate in style! Enjoy a carefree and relaxing Maine vacation at Fox Hollow Farm. This comfortably elegant antique farmhouse is fully equipped with all modern conveniences--wi-fi, smart TV, bluetooth stereo, full country kitchen--plus games and books for cozy evenings, and much more. The decor is elegant, cheerful and comfortable. Surrounded by woods and fruit trees with tidal views of Raccoon Cove and the mountains of Acadia National Park, the house is serene and secluded, yet it’s perfectly situated for a short walk or bike ride down a quiet country road to sandy beaches and a local swimming hole; you can explore the shoreline and islands of Frenchman’s Bay by kayak or sailboat; and Acadia National Park is under a half-hour away. Visit the Farm when you're ready to slow down and enjoy a perfect vacation in Down East Maine.

Inside the House: The story goes that the sunroom was originally the General Store for the area in the late 1700s; the shelves today display vintage glassware. The sunroom is a bright and cheerful room to curl with a book on the cot or sort your seashells. You'll also find croquet, bocce ball, and horseshoes to take out on the lawn. The adjacent mudroom has a washer/dryer, ironing board, and iron. The kitchen is a terrific family hangout, with bench seats around the kitchen table and a moose chandelier, exposed antique wooden beams along with beautiful views of Raccoon Cove and Sargeant Mountain. The living room, den, and dining room are off the kitchen. Each room is painted a different color. Vintage furniture includes incredibly comfy couches, a large desk, and seating for up to six.

Outside: The farmhouse is on two+ acres surrounded by open grass and a big red barn, without a neighbor in sight. A front porch under the lilacs provides a serene spot to relax in one of the Adirondack chairs and take in the amazing view. The new back patio is a delightful location for evening gatherings and barbecues. A colorful, fragrant perennial garden attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. The wildlife here is phenomenal: you’re likely to spot eagles and osprey soaring overhead, and a variety of warblers in the woods. We’ve also seen moose and foxes on the property. Come dusk, you may hear the drumming of a grouse or the ethereal song of a thrush. Fireflies and crickets provide lively evening entertainment. And if you’re here in the fall, the autumn foliage is spectacular. Outdoor amenities also include a picnic table, a charcoal barbecue, kayaks, bicycles, and beach chairs, coolers, and clamming equipment you can take to the nearby beaches.

Some of our prior guests' comments:

'This was truly one of our most wonderful family vacations. The farmhouse is gorgeous, the property lovely and the location absolutely perfect.'

'Family meals in the kitchen, frisbee in the yard, and Lamoine State Beach were excellent things to do. Thank you for your tasteful and welcoming place.'

'What a great place! We loved exploring the house and yard. The kids picked raspberries along the periphery, and we had a terrific football game in front of the barn.'

'We feel like we've found a real jewel. None of us was ready to leave, and we can't wait to come back!'

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We fell in love with Maine a few years ago when Lee's Mom moved to the area. Even though we both grew up in California, we each have family roots in New England and we feel a deep connection to the region. We're currently splitting our time between San Francisco and the farmhouse.

Why the Owner Chose Lamoine, ME, USA:
Having been longtime renters in San Francisco, we wanted a home to call our own. In the summer of 2004 we became lost on the way to Lamoine Beach, and found this house for sale. Lee still plans to actually farm the land one day, when she quits her day job!

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
This house has an undeniably positive energy about it. Every year that we return we recognize it. Whether it's something about the layout of the house, its southerly orientation facing Sargeant Mountain, or something deep in the old wood rafters and beams, this house instills a sense of peace, wholeness, and joy. We can't help but imagine the many generations of families and friends here over the years have felt the same way.
