I'm not sure what could be cooler than staying in a converted 1886 Barn. The first floor is their storage room and where the owner stores his kayaks, paddle boards, lawn toys, and larger cooking equipment, that is all available to use as a guest. The apartments upstairs are beautiful too, all new appliances, immaculately clean and beautiful views! I would come back in a heartbeat.

This is a MAINE MUST

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at the barn over labor day weekend and had the best trip. We would walk down the hill to Allen's seafood to pick up some lobster, clams, you name it and make it for our group dinners that same evening. The sunsets were spectacular. The host, Pete, is great and so welcoming! The barn was setup with kayaks and standup paddle boards. Even lawn games! The inside of the home is stunning and very comfortable. Pete has done a great job. Beds are all comfortable. All of us slept very well. Pictures don't do the home justice! I can't wait for my next trip to Maine where I will most definitely return to stay at this beautiful home.

Heaven in Harpswell

  • 5 of 5

We spent Labor Day 2016 at the Barn and had an unforgettable experience. Everything was right in the backyard- Kayaks and Stand Up Paddle Boards, a fire pit and BBQ. Also, fresh lobsters, clams, crabs are a minute walk down the road at an amazing price. Great for a family gathering with family or friends. Very clean, too. For my first time in Maine I will definitely be going back. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the barn for a week and we fell in love ! The barn is beautiful, comfortable and the perfect location to watch the tide come in, get fresh lobster and just to relax. My children ages 8,9,11 have asked to go back for birthdays and special events, it is just amazing!

Beautiful Home & Views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our 3 children (ages 9, 11 and 12) spent the week her and the description of this property is right on point but you must see it to truly appreciate it. The views are terrific, the property was immaculate upon arrival and the beds and furniture were all new and very comfortable. The owners were very nice and accommodating. We usually vacation in Nantucket during this time for two weeks but my kids loved this place so much it may be our new spot. The kids loved the house and the use of kayaks and the paddle boards kept us all thoroughly entertained. I would highly recommend this property to anyone seeking to stay in this area.

Beautiful Home & Views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and three children vacationed at this property and we were extremely pleased. The pictures and description don't do the property justice. The house is decorated beautifully, well appointed, very comfortable and the location is fantastic with picturesque views. The house was immaculate the cleaning service they use does a great job. The owners were great to deal with. The availability of the kayaks and paddle boards were a big hit with us all. My kids are already asking when we can go back and expressed that this vacation was better than our Disney vacation in April. We typically vacation in Nantucket for 2 weeks each summer but this may be our new spot. I would highly recommend this property.
