Originally built in the late 1700's this post and beam home was solidly built from hand hewn timbers upon a field stone granite foundation. Beginning 1800's a second cape style home was added on to the original colonial house, expanding it into a very unique and large country home. This combination allowed for large, cozy bedrooms with spacious closets.

The entire home was completely remodeled in 2009 including the addition of another 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom area in the main floor. The total living space is over 4300 sq. ft., sitting on 3 beautiful acres overlooking gorgeous Maine countryside.

The Main house has 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms with a large Country Kitchen, Laundry, Family/Living Room, Screened Sunporch and Large Loft Area.

The House sleeps 16+ people

What makes this Farmhouse unique

                                                            Perfect Weekend

                                                            Pete G.

                                                            Our group had a great time a the farmhouse - plenty of space for entertaining the 15 guests and everyone even had a bed. Quiet and relaxing weekend. Plus its a short commute to everything downtown Portland has to offer. Highly recommended and would love to visit in the warmer months.

                                                            So glad you all had a lovely time dispite the freezing weather!! Great group would love to host again in the summer or lovely colorful fall!!

                                                            Great location for family retreat!

                                                            Greg H.

                                                            The layout of the house was great for us - each "family section" had their own wing, with the large kitchen, dining area, and family room as a common area. The yard is huge, and the kids loved running around and exploring. The kitchen had everything we needed. Great time.

                                                            Amazing Property!

                                                            Farmhouse was well equipped. There was tons of room-both inside and outside for all the children to run and play. Comfortable beds and plenty of bathrooms for all the families. 2 kitchens to prepare and serve meals was a big plus.

                                                            We had a family wedding at Bonny Eagle Pond . Being able to have some of the guest stay at the farm house was great. The pictures don't do the house justice. Very comfortable and clean . Washer and dryer a big plus. The property is beautiful and we'll maintained. We would definitely rent from Yolindi again.
