About Lindy Stretch

I had been visiting Mt Desert Island since I was a child and it was always a special place. In the late 90'smy family purchased Fox Field Farm and became the second family to own it in 300 years. Our family has made many memories here and are happy to have your family make those memories too.

Lindy Stretch purchased this house in 1988

Why Lindy Stretch chose Bar Harbor

The cottage has an extraordinary sunset view (rare in Maine) over Western Bay and distant Blue Hill. . It is 10 minutes form Acadia National Park and 15 minutes from Bar Harbor.

What makes this house unique

It's a very peaceful and quiet retreat, and dogs are welcome.

Beautiful property - sunsets, firepit and short drive to Bar Harbor/Acadia

  • 5 of 5

Six of us (my parents who are in their mid-70s, my husband and I and our two children ages 8 and 10) stayed at the cottage for three nights. We enjoyed two magnificent sunsets, s'mores over the firepit. Kitchen is well-equipped. Washer and dryer were great as we had been travelling for a while by the time we arrived at the cottage. It took us 15 minutes to drive to Bar Harbor/Acadia. We enjoyed saying hi to the horses in the morning, played a boardgame and watched a movie one night. Loved sitting on the deck watching the sun go down with a glass of wine. Cottage was clean and a welcome site at the end of a busy day walking around Acadia and exploring Bar Harbor. We would definitely stay again but next time for a week so we could spend some more time hiking in Acadia. Very enjoyable few days.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this house. It was so relaxing and a perfect location for exploring Bar Harbor and Acadia. It's just a short drive to anywhere you want to go on the island. The owners were very friendly and the house was exactly as described.

Wonderful home in a great location

Tim and Lindy were wonderful, communicative hosts with a beautiful house perfectly situated near the entrance to Acadia National Park. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Thank you so much.

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Private cottage, very cozy and peaceful. Beautiful views. Great place for families with kids. Fire pit, deck, tree swing, even a few horses on the property. Huge master suite with a portable electric fire place. Comfortable for 6 guests, 2 queen beds and a twin bunk bed. There were few toddler foldable mattresses in the closet including a high chair. Enough change of sheets and towels. Washer dryer with supplies inside. Kitchen has most utensils. It is somewhat stocked. Basic things to make tea or coffee is there. Nearest grocery store is 10 minutes away. Keep in mind, most places nearby closes by 8:00pm. However, Bar Harbor is only 17 minutes away. Stores there are open till 9:30pm. We had a very pleasant stay here. Will definitely come back.

Bar Harbor Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We stayed during mid April and found the cottage well equipped and very comfortable for 4. Could easily accommodate 6, especially if two liked bunk beds. Location on "quiet side" of Island very nice, but proximity to National park and Bar Harbor excellent to avoid additional driving time. Kitchen very serviceable with nice dining area. Living area comfortable. Entry way large enough to accommodate inevitable "stuff". Washer and dryer nice convenience especially for families, active people, or for those caught in wet weather!

In addition to Summer, Spring and Fall are remarkable times to be at Fox Fields Farm. We are surrounded by nature preserves, and the leaves are outstanding here in the Fall. Many think that September and October are actually the best time to be here.
