    Come away from it all--catch your breath.

    Six miles from the bustle of Boothbay Harbor is a peaceful 15 acre river-front retreat, set among rolling lawns, meandering stone walls, apple orchards and richly colored perennial gardens. The estate consists of four New England-style buildings: a new Maine Farmhouse and historic barn; a charming garden shed; a fully renovated 1800s Cape and a 1700s barn which sometimes holds the private Bold Colorful Life Gallery, filled with jewelry, photographs and paintings...sometimes holds wedding ceremonies. There are two rental properties here. The calendar is for the Cape. Ask us about our waterfront Farmhouse...or find us by entering Bold Colorful Life.....

    Additional Location Information
    The property is located on the Back River, on the Boothbay peninsula, four miles from the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens and six miles from Boothbay Harbor itself. The fifteen acre estate is near the end of a quiet, peaceful residential road which follows the Back River for almost 4 miles. Swimming, canoeing, kayaking and hiking all begin right here. There is a cove at the bottom of the lawn which opens out into the river. Regular guests include a pair of bald eagles, a friendly porcupine, cove seals and local deer. A female moose crosses the property every Fall. There are hiking trails in a dozen preserves within 10 miles; one of them around the corner--Ovens Mouth.
    Boothbay Harbor offers restaurants, shopping, galleries, saltwater activities.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I recently stayed 3 nights at the farmhouse with 5 friends. The stay was great with lots of room to enjoy time together and still have plenty of privacy. The bedrooms were decorated beautifully, each with its own bathroom. The beds were comfy, too. The grounds are gorgeous with acres of beauty. It really was a wonderful place to stay, and I hope to again! more
