About the property

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

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

It is a mere 2 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 30 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 Acadia

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 had.

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 cloths 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.

Fabulous place with everything we needed for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (including 2 dogs) stayed at the farmhouse over Thanksgiving weekend, and it was just perfect! Lots of room, very welcoming and felt like home. Close to Acadia and all Down East has to offer. Highly recommend - hope to return. Also, Ray (the owner) was just terrific and made everything a breeze.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in late August and absolutely loved it! The house had everything we needed. There was plenty of space for our family of five, and the kids loved exploring the house!

It is ideally located, about 20 minutes from Acadia, Bar Harbor and Schoodic. Plenty to do! Swimming at Blunt's Pond or in Frenchman's Bay, hiking, SUP boarding at Long pond - just to name a few!

The weather was beautiful, warm days and cool evenings , so the lack of air conditioning was not an issue. There were plenty of fans in the house if needed.

We are looking forward to coming back next year!

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Coming from Florida in the middle of the hot and humid summer, our family was looking for an idyllic farmhouse close to major sites, like Acadia, but tucked away just enough. We found this home to be a delightfully charming Maine farmhouse! We had 3 adults and 2 children (6 and 1.5), and we all had more than enough space. The kids loved all of the little details of the home, especially the nooks and crannies. There are 2 sets of stairs, but both can be blocked off with closed doors, so the home is absolutely safe for young toddlers. The backyard is large and quiet, and is perfect for evening activities. The home is close to everything!! Acadia, Bar Harbor and the Schoodic Peninsula are all within easy access, and there are plenty of grocery stores, restaurants and shops within about a 15 minute drive. The owners are kind and welcoming -Ray had wonderful suggestions for us, and was very accommodating. Don't leave without cooking your own lobsters-and definitely follow Ray's suggestion on where to buy!! We felt at home immediately, and we were sad to leave-we will be back!!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This farmhouse was ideally positioned to easily go to MDI, Ellsworth, Schoodic, and beyond to Lubec. The number of bedrooms and bathrooms were ideal, and the younger folks got a kick out of the set-up of the upstairs. We did, however, quickly find out that the dogs went up the steps easily enough but had to be helped back downstairs. It was a built-in deterrent to keep them where we wanted them! There was plenty of parking for our caravan, including an 8-foot trailer. The only thing missing for me was air conditioning. It would have been very welcome during the warmer August days, especially during unpacking and packing. If not air conditioning, more fans should be available. As we do plan for everything, we had even brought more fans with us! If you don't mind being without air conditioning, it is the perfect vacation location for families with an older set (sleep downstairs) and a younger set (sleep upstairs). The house was spacious enough for four dogs of various sizes to spread out with 7 people teenaged and up, both inside and outside the house. Additional outdoor furniture would be nice. Regardless of the couple downsides mentioned, the location is outstanding! It helped to make this our best trip ever to Maine!

Fantastic Week

  • 5 of 5

The farmhouse was a wonderful property for our family group. Kids loved the layout and historic touches to the property, and the good wi-fi was a helpful tool for keeping them entertained. This home offers everything you need for a great stay in the region. Great linens, plenty of hot water, and a peaceful location close to shopping and activities. If you visit while the lupines are in bloom, the fields surrounding the property make for picture-perfect memories. The house is clean and very well kept, and Lamoine is an ideal location to be out of the crush of visitors but close to all the nearby attractions. We enjoyed the easy access to both Acadia on MDI as well as Acadia on the Schoodic Peninsula.

I highly recommend and look forward to booking this home again. Thanks!

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The farmhouse was perfect for a quiet vacation near Acadia. The house itself was well kept, well stocked and felt very comfortable. The location was extremely peaceful but close enough to everything you could need. Acadia is a half hour away and grocery stores and restaurants are about 10 minutes away. The owner was very accommodating and responsive to all our questions. I would recommend this house to everyone and we will certainly stay there again next time we head to Maine.
