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.
