Property description

Our long term renter can't come. See new pricing and availability from October through June. New upgrades include new window, new door and TV upstairs. We are eager to rent so take a look and make an offer!

Coming to Maine? Want a picturesque setting on the Mid coast? Want a great room with a view of Penobscot Bay? Want sleeping space for 6? Want a kitchen with a six burner stove top and a convection oven? Want a washer and dryer? Want to be close to a beach? Want books, satellite TV, wireless access and two floors to settle in? We have it all in a rustic barn built in the 1970s but looking like the 1870s. In Spring and Summer walk the property, view the gardens, feed the birds and head easily to any site on the Midcoast. In Winter local skiing, cross country and downhill available. Winter and summer hikes, great food and quiet towns make for a relaxing time. But act quickly because early inquries and bookings are now staring to arrive. Now is the time to plan for a week or more in Maine. The Windjammer Barn is one half mile south of Lincolnville Beach and the Isleboro Ferry Landing on US Route 1and 5 miles north of Camden. Come stay with us for the best vacation ever!

The Barn, built in the 1970s, was constructed to capture the charm of old Maine structures and provide magnificent views of Penobscot Bay and the scenic island of Isleboro. This Barn unit features a great room with large windows facing the Bay and allowing views of the sunrises over the island. Located only five miles from Camden and twelve miles from Belfast, the Barn offers easy access to all of the Mid-Coast area.

The central unit of the Windjammer Barn has many features—wide pine floors, large glass windows, book shelves, a wood stove and full heating system and new furniture. The barn has a great room fully equipped with TV/VCR/DVD, and plenty of books and board games. The kitchen offers all modern conveniences including Gaggenau convection oven, six burner stove top, dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, and full dish and tableware sets. The first floor also contains a full bath with a walk-in shower and a separate space for the washer and dryer.

The great room contains a kitchen table and chairs, comfortable chairs, and a queen sleep sofa, a day bed and several comfortable chairs. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, the larger with a queen size bed and the other with two twin size beds. There is a half bath on the upper floor. The Windjammer Barn sleeps 4 - 6 people comfortably. Bed and bath linen provided. Sorry, no smoking indoors

The outside provides seven acres of meadow, apple trees, chairs for relaxing and a pond often inhabited by ducks, Canadian geese and local water fowl and an occasional moose. The outdoor area also has a charcoal grill, and a table and chairs for outside dining. A walking path down to and around the pond may be used. A short walk away are four restaurants, the Lincolnville Beach, a great bakery, wine and sandwich shop and shops with local Maine crafts.

If you prefer to drive, the towns of Camden, Rockport, Rockland and Belfast are all within 20 minutes. State Parks, hiking trails, chances to take a whale watch, a schooner ride or a Puffin tour or simply to sit and view the harbors of what many consider the most beautiful portion of Maine’s coast are all available to you.

In the evening, cook a meal on the outdoor grill, or walk to the beach and walk along the rocky Maine shore, have a seafood meal at one of the many local restaurants. Next door is one of Maine’s many antique shops and art galleries dot the road from Camden to Belfast.

Maine's Mid-Coast is the kind of genuine Maine experience you've always imagined. It includes a wealth of picturesque harbors, rugged peninsulas and majestic lighthouses of breathtaking scenic beauty. Local whale, wildlife, and puffin tours offer the chance to observe nature up close from the water as do kayak and canoe rental facilities and many public boat ramps. The area is rich in history, art galleries, antique shops, and local crafts. Plan to visit the islands that nestle in scenic Penobscot Bay. You'll find it all here; rich history, spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife, and friendly people.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Bev and I have lived in Maine for 28 years. Our children were born and raised here and we are committed to 'the way life should be.' We garden, hike, kayak and enjoy the sea food that is so much a part of the Maine coast. Our 7 acres are a part of a 25-30 acre open area, one of the few this fine on the midcoast. We are eager to share this wonderful spot with our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Lincolnville, ME, USA:
When we were looking for a home on the coast, we wanted to find a location with a picture perfect rental location as well. And we found just that. Our home, a cape situated on the property, was built on Isleboro and transported to the site more than 100 years ago across the ice of the Bay. It has been expanded many times. Because we live here, we can provide support to our guests and make sure that each vacation is 'just right.' Of course, when the Windjammer is not rented, we can also host our own gatherings of friends and family. The location, the view, the charm and the wildlife all made this the perfect spot for us -- and for you!

The Unique Benefits at this Barn:
Mid-coast Maine is simply spectacular. Driving in any direction one finds antiques, restaurants, art, hiking trails, ship tours, just about anything relating to the ocean. The best features, of course, are the views of the special Maine coast and the wild life that abounds. Whatever time of year one comes to Maine, there's always too much to see and do.
