Owner info

Year Purchased: 1981

About the owner: I live next door to The Barn in another post-and-beam barn, with my cats and dogs. Have lived in Maine for 35 years, but am originally from Wisconsin

Why the Owner Chose Alna, ME, USA:
My family moved from Connecticut and purchased an 18th century central chimney colonial home, with almost seventy acres of woods and fields, on this property in 1981. The house later burned down, and I converted and moved into the new post and beam barn across the street. A year or two later I built another post and beam barn nearby (the rental property).

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Dog friendly. Barn sleeps up to twelve; ideal for several couples or families. Would also be ideal for wedding parties and guests (there are a number of beautiful wedding venues nearby.) Family reunions welcome.
