Don't miss an opportunity to stay in this one of a kind one bedroom apartment in the loft of a recently reconstructed 1850s post and beam barn. The barn is attached to the main house with a private entrance. A flight of stairs leads you to the quiet second floor sunny space where you'll overlook vegetable and perennial gardens. Lots of windows allow the southern and western facing sunlight. Perfect artist retreat! The pine beadboard ceilings and natural wide pine floors are new and clean . Open concept kitchen/dining/ living room with views of Round Pond's white and brown church steeples, woodlands, and gardens. Master bedroom with queen bed and plenty of blankets for cool Maine nights. There is a fan but no ac. The bathroom has a shower only rather than a tub. Plenty of towels and 2 beach towels are included. Fully equipped kitchen with propane range and microwave. There is a coffee maker and press pot, as well as coffee grinder and toaster. Pots and pans are Pampered Chef. Plastic and foil wraps, salt/pepper, olive oil, sugar and some herbs are included. The Island is perfect for morning coffee and an evening glass of wine.

Located across the street from community tennis court /basketball court and a 5 minute walk from Round Pond Harbor. Eat lobster in the rough or dine at The Anchor restaurant. Grab sandwiches or pizza at King Ro Market where musicians jam every Monday at 5:00. Round Pond Coffee is open daily for their own Round Pond coffee blend, other coffee drinks and smoothies, and pastries from The Barn Bakery. Live music at the Brown Church every Wednesday evening for a donation. Satisfy your sweet tooth at the Granite Hall Store and Dot's Bakery. Lovely walks right out the back door into the woods and fields or stroll or bike along Back Shore Road to Bass Rock Preserve. Many local preserves for walking, Pemaquid Beach a short drive away, kayak rentals nearby to access Muscongus Bay and the islands. Perfect getaway spot. Parking for 1 car. No pets.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We've been Mainers for more than 30 years, although the locals still consider us 'from away'. We are a teacher and marine biologist. We look forward to welcoming guests to our apartment, where we lived while building our new home next door. Carol will retire in June 2017 and looks forward to working in the gardens that surround the house and welcoming guests.

Why the Owner Chose Pemaquid, Bristol, ME, USA:
The barn is a reconstruction of an early 1850's post and beam parish house that was once in Bristol Mills. Some windows and interior doors were salvaged from our on site 1875 Victorian home which burned in 2011. We've created a comfortable apartment that reflects an earlier time when the pace of life was slower. Gently used vintage furnishings create a warm, inviting environment.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
A 5 minute walk from Round Pond Harbor, an active lobster fishing and sailing harbor. Walk to fine dining or lobster in the rough. If you like exploring the woods and fields, there are trails right out the back door. You could see river otters frolicking in the stream, a rookery of great blue herons in the swamp, or deer grazing in the fields. Not up for the wilderness, take a walk to Bass Rock Preserve and meditate while the waves gently lap at your feet.
