For a number of reasons I was not allowed to post a lodging review of the Humble Farmer B&B on Trip Advisor. The available number or rooms, etc are valid reasons, but we stumbled upon this place run by two really great people and it is important to me that I tell folks about it. I also have a reason to encourage business for this place, and that is, that I bought my stay for a pittance from "Bidding for Good" auction site. My husband and I really enjoyed our 2 night stay with Humble and his lovely wife Marsha and wanted to repay them for donating to the Penobscot Chamber of Commerce last year. Robert (Humble) is a Maine native with a number of eclectic talents and skills, and Marsha, a retired elementary school teacher has the skill necessary to deal with Robert. She is a great cook as well with home baked goodies, etc. She has a very interesting job with the Wyeth clan and that has enriched their home with multiple art works, and enriched our stay.
Small farm basically woods and fruit trees. Beautiful rhubarb when we were there, and cattle. Lots of old cars in the garage and out front advertising the place. It is best to look at Bob's The Humble Farmer B&B website before booking a stay. I knew that my husband would enjoy Robert's humor and he did. I'll try to get some pictures of ours attached but the web site tells the story.
The B&B is an attraction in itself more than a B&B. Great people, great location near Rockland, and other points of interest. Near a couple of good restaurants. They have 3 rooms, but usually rent only the large windowed one overlooking the orchards. Private bath of course and a queen and twin bed. Wyeth's prints on the walls as well as originals by family members. Nothing to do there for kids however but room in a couple of upstairs rooms if necessary.
While we were there we visited the local church where an extraordinary classical guitarist gave a great concert. Name? Got to find the disc and give the man credit. During the rainy day we went to Farnsworth Museums, the Wyeth annex featuring items from the Wyeth's personal collections at present, and the Olson House (Christina's world). We also had a good "German Meal" at the Happy Clam four miles up the road. They really should emphasize the German entrees. Seafood, albeit great , is everywhere and so is Italian, but German? A treat for me. Another place I could not add to my reviews unfortunately. Of course a light house, which was in the Gump movie I am told. Despite all the attractions one gets a feeling that they are really seeing Maine. We go to Maine because we have grandchildren there and since they are in Bar Harbor, this was a refreshing change. I recommend it for those of you who love art, and have a corny sense of humor. Can accommodate children but not much for them to do if the cows are not around, but B&B's are not really designed for the kids are they?
