Stick close to home with beautiful Blue Hill village's shops, bookstore, gourmet food & wine, restaurants, galleries, museums, concert-quality chamber music, live theater, hospital, library, hiking, biking, kayaking, sailing, swimming or tennis (3 golf courses within 20 miles) -- or explore nearby historic Castine, Cape Rosier, Ellsworth, Bucksport, Stonington and Deer Isle.

About the owner: Sunflower Farm is our home. Wendy & Ken love good food and wine, beautiful architecture and gardens, history, theatre, music, interesting people and worldwide travel.

Also, Wendy is a Notary Public and thereby authorized to perform marriages by the State of Maine.
Why the Owner Chose Blue Hill, ME, USA:
Sunflower Farm is a gorgeous property bordered by a fresh water stream flowing into the Salt Pond, a 4-mile long inlet from the ocean. Sited on a shallow tidal cove framed by Carleton Island, home to a nesting pair of bald eagles, osprey, blue herons, ducks and seals, it is a Maine paradise. Ancient Abenaki tribes once used this land as their summer camping grounds.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
You'll appreciate use of this exclusive, private estate and the quiet beauty of natural surroundings. Sunflower Farm has 4 acres to explore, filled with gardens, squirrels, birdsong, and several separate outdoor seating areas featuring comfortable Adirondack chairs in sun or shade. Enjoy a good book or breathe in the fresh air and beautiful water views. You may use our kayaks (2 singles or a double) to explore the Salt Pond. Use our private pool to swim and sunbathe or get refreshed in the bubbling stream.
