    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: one vacation rental is the new Maine Farmhouse and historic barn; a second rental is a fully renovated 1800s Cape; there's a charming garden shed and a 1700s barn which sometimes holds the private Bold Colorful Life Gallery, filled with jewelry, photographs and paintings...sometimes holds wedding ceremonies. 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.

We were 5 couples visiting for Labor Day weekend (3 nights) and we all had more than enough room to amble around in this very spacious and homey farm house. Melissa is very gracious and accommodating. I most enjoyed sitting on the large deck in back which has a view of the Back River. The house is located in a... more

The Farmhouse is a fantastic house. Truly a home away from home. My teenage daughter exclaimed, "this place is awesome!" Everyone was very comfortable and happy with their own rooms and bathrooms. My 86 year old mother was very happy with her bathroom which was handicap equipped. The kitchen is well equipped and the large barn door kitchen table is... more

Owner is delightful, shares musical instruments and huge library, helps with kayak rental. Our 4 families... more
