We have capitalized on Peter's years of experience as an innkeeper in New England and our shared love of travel to bring you a warm cottage experience in a quintessentially American setting, a Maine farm. With the comforts and conveniences of home, and access to a greater range of activities than you can even do combine to give you a vacation experience that you’ll treasure for years to come.
Moment's Peace Farm is that rare property where every visitor greets us at the door saying, 'What a beautiful setting.' It just has that New England charm, not the least owing to the beautiful restored 19th Century barn that greets you among the rolling hills as you enter the property. There is a lovely pond a leisurely stroll through the fields, beautiful woods, farm pastures, an organic garden, free-ranging chickens, and even a friendly Samoyed to greet you when you arrive. Relax and restore in your private suite, or nestle in with a good book on your private back deck, keeping one eye out for visiting wildlife. Then pop into Portland for the day to take in the museums or visit Casco Bay or the surrounding beaches. You can explore all you'd like, then enjoy a moment's peace at the end of the day.

One of our cottage guest's reviews: "The owners, Joy and Peter, were very responsive, though our contact with them was minimal because the cottage provided everything we needed. My only regret is that I didn't book the entire week... but we'll be back."
A quaint little guest house on a lovely farm. It was perfect for us, well equipped kitchen, washer and dryer and plenty of space. Well located in an idyllic, pastoral area outside of portland. Not to far if you want to visit Kennebunkport or Portland but quiet and away from it all. My son loved the owner's dog and their chickens! We had a couple dinners that we made with produce from their garden and eggs from the hens. Highly recommend!
I can’t say enough about how wonderful our stay was! I’ll start by saying there were 6 of us (2 parents and 4 children - under 8 years old) who stayed here. I was concerned about space, but we were very comfortable and cozy. The house was extremely clean and lacked nothing! Joy and Peter were very accommodating to us and our every need was met! The house is in a beautiful country setting, my only wish is that we could have had more time to relax and enjoy it, but the Portland area has so much to offer that we actually spent most of our time sightseeing and with family. I’ll leave by saying that I am very picky about where I stay, and this place is amazing!
Thanks, Joy & Peter!
Arrived at thus tranquil spot to be greeted by the owner Perer , a warm friendly welcome. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Cannot think of anything we needed that wasn't there. When the water heater failed Peter arranged for an engineer and it was fixed immediately even though it was Saturday evening, the location of this property is superb. Central to many wonderful places to visit, and rural enough that we could watch deer from the deck each evening. Peter and Joy and their teenage children are delightful hosts. We would not hesitate to recommend Moments Peace Farm.
This property is exactly like it is described. The location is a bit off the beaten path but still close to the sites of Portland, Kennebunkport and Freeport. We would stay here again.
My wife and I spent 4 wonderful nights here for our wedding anniversary. Hollis is about 25 minutes drive from Portland and is a scenic, quiet location. The guest apartment is new, very nicely maintained, with sunny window exposures. Peter and Joy were very cordial and the farm fresh eggs from the hen house were a real treat. For road cyclists there is a variety of road and off-road opportunities in the area. The best part of this location is its rural setting but, a very short drive to downtown Portland's many amenities. Great place for a quiet Get Away.
This is an absolutely gorgeous place to stay & the owners are fantastic. We prepared our own dinners & really appreciated the non-stick pots/pans & outdoor grill - definitely a fully-equipped kitchen with very nice things. The guest house was spotless & beautifully decorated. Free wi-fi with an excellent signal strength was also a plus.
Moment’s Peace Farm is an 80-acre hobby farm as well as a residence. We have a restored 19th Century barn and extensive fields and woods, as well as a detached building in which your private vacation apartment is located. You are surrounded by beautiful pastoral views, and you can immediately access walking, swimming, sledding, cross-country skiing, lawn games and wildlife viewing right outside your door. Tennis and golf are right up the road. The Saco River is easily accessible for some fine canoeing, whether flat water or white water, whichever you seek. There are small country stores and a range of restaurants nearby, from diners and pizza places to pub dining and Thai food. A full grocery store is within easy access. Three quaint libraries are also in our immediate area, as are many farms, as well as walking, skiing, equestrian, and snowmobile trails.
Then, within half an hour you can be in either the Kennebunks or Portland, where there are many sights to see. From first-class beaches to museums, art, architecture, cultural events and theatre, there is always something fun to do. Dine on the water, take a ferry to a Casco Bay island, or take a whale watch tour. Ride the Downeaster train to Boston and back in an easy day. Or, in an hour's drive, you can rent a boat on Sebago or Kezar Lakes, visit the mountains of Western Maine or be in the Whites for some world-class hiking. Moment's Peace Farm is very well situated to access any of a number of activities, without being either in the thick of the city or remote from amenities. You can do almost anything you'd like, and then enjoy the peace and quiet of the farm when you come home.
