About the property

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This is a newly renovated mid 1800s New England farmhouse.

It is a mere 5 min. drive/20 min. bike ride to the local beach, which offers a great kayak launch, beautiful walk, or sunbathing/ swimming; and Lamoine State Park, which offers picnic areas, boat access, and pier fishing.

The property is a scenic 15 min. drive from Mount Desert Island and a 25 min. drive from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

The farm house is located in a quiet neighborhood that gives you the old New England charm of quiet days and easy growing up.

It's also just a 10 min. drive from Ellsworth which offers boutique shopping amid its old New England brick buildings, grocery shopping, and rainy day entertainment.

The Downeast area is still a great antiquing destination.

With tons of antique shops, yard sales, and country estate sales, the bargain hunter is sure to make a find.

About Ray Stephens

My wife and I bought this farmhouse because we saw the potential it had and wanted to remodel it to its potential. It is a wonderful old house with lots of history. It took way too long to remodel it...8 years. I found I just didn't have the time to put into it that I thought. It was a wonderful project and we enjoyed most of the process. As we

remodeled it, we wanted to do it in a way that we'd be very happy and comfortable to live there ourselves. We've succeeded in doing that. The house has all new plumbing, heating, electrical, windows, roof, kitchen, 2 new bathrooms. The floors were sanded to bring out the original wood floors and beauty.

Ray Stephens purchased this farmhouse in 2002

Why Ray Stephens chose Lamoine

Since we live just down the road, we felt this property made sense to purchase. We knew the previous owner and wanted to continue to care and appreciate the house as he did.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Off the kitchen there is a nice shed or mud room, if the weather is inclement and gives a place to take off wet clothes or muddy shoes and boots. The farmhouse also has a unique white cast-iron farmhouse sink. There are many nooks and crannies that are exciting and unusual for the kids to explore.

What a great trip!

  • 5 of 5

The Farmhouse was all that we had hoped it would be and more! It was clean with a well appointed kitchen. Having 4 bedrooms meant there was plenty of room for everyone without feeling crowded. The house seemed to go on and on and on. Behind every door was another interesting room. The house is located near Acadia as well as restaurants and shopping. It was ideal for our family.

Great place to stay. We had a blast and enjoyed the feel of walking back in time in a nicely furnished home. Ray was great and a useful travel guide also. Cooked some nice Lobsters and Clam Chowder. Everything there that was needed. Would do it again in a heart beat.

Truly Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The "Farmhouse" is wonderful in every way. It's cozy, charming, comfortable and convenient to all the great attractions of the area. Its close to Acadia, both the area in Bar Harbor, as well as Schoodic. The house itself has everything necessary for a great vacation. The kitchen is well appointed and new. Plus the kitchen design compliments the charm of the rest of the house. The beds were comfortable and had plenty of room for the eight in our family. We will definitely return to this wonderful Farmhouse on our next trip to Acadia!

All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at the farmhouse. The house lacked nothing we needed and we had a great time exploring the area. I'm afraid the highlight of the day for the kids was coming back to the farm house! We loved the recommended restaurants (downeast lobster and rosalies pizza). We also drove up to Quoddyhead which we highly recommend. We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area!

This farmhouse was everything we hoped it would be and more. Older home was exceptional. Very well maintained. Even got to meet the owners. Good people. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks Ray for a wonderful experience.

Our family came from Dubai, Colorado, Pennsylvania and Illinois for a weeklong family reunion. It was the perfect location for 8, including a 2-year old. Ray and his wife brought a crib over and set it up for us upon arrival. We did all our own cooking and found the kitchen very convenient for working together for meal prep and cleanup. Breakfasts and dinners were leisurely and we spent much time sitting around the table laughing and talking. We were in no hurry to get to Acadia. The road had little traffic so we were able to play outside in the yard with the toddler. Nights were dark and quiet and we slept deeply. Elsworth was a quick drive for groceries. We did everything we wanted to do, mountain climbing, hiking, mail boat to the islands, biking, swimming, shopping, Union River Lobster Pot, Jordan Pond House, botanical gardens. Our favorite lunch was at the Seal Cove Goat Farm sitting outside with pizza from the brick fired oven and walking among the affectionate goats. Thanks for the great suggestion! It was a very good week and a great headquarters for our family reunion.
