We fell in love with Maine, thanks to our beautiful experiences at 1832 Island Farmhouse! The home was comfortable (we stayed for a month with no regrets) and because of its age and furnishings, it gave us an authentic Maine experience. The property is magnificent— flowers, views, wildlife, even fresh rhubarb to make pies was just steps outside the back door! We ate most meals on one of the inviting porches and cocktails were even more special enjoyed outdoors in the evening. The location was perfect, with Stonington and all it has to offer nearby and Bar Harbor, Blue Hill and Ellsworth within a short drive. We had so much fun exploring the area, especially enjoying the local farmers markets with the most amazing, locally sourced, fresh foods that were available there. OMG! So good!
The owner, Tom, although not in the area, was always quick to respond to our questions. He and his local family were helpful, friendly and responsive. We wish they were our neighbors year round!
We had only one crazy experience and that was because our dogs were enjoying being there as much as we were. Vivian came back one evening with porcupine quills stuck in her nose so we learned from that scary incident leashes were the safest bet for our two girls!
We can’t wait to return to Maine! It’s the perfect place for us to be come summer.
We are so happy that we were able to stay at this cottage. It was convenient, well-appointed and the views and access to the water were a treat. We would recommend staying here even on cold nights like we did. The owners took great care to make sure we found it, had everything we needed and let us know they were accessible should we want. I am very grateful to have had such a wonderful vacation at this cottage.
