Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Lamoine - The Henry House
3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom On 80+ Acres Close To Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park
This charming, comfortable, classic cape in Lamoine was built around 1820. It is on a beautiful piece of property with over 80 acres of land, apple trees, blueberries, rhubarb, and some of the best drinking water in the world. You will enjoy the privacy this setting provides, yet the convenience of easy access.
Exposed hand-hewn beams in the dining room and master bedroom suite, and a built-in china hutch in the dining room add timeless charm and elegance. Recent renovations provide all the updated conveniences that will make your stay comfortable and easy.
A large yard provides lots of space for barbeques, games, and just relaxing in the sun. A basketball hoop in the driveway provides more fun, and blueberry fields (blueberries ripe for picking in July/August) provide the opportunity to eat one of Maine’s well-known fruits.
The first floor has a large mudroom, a lovely, light-filled modern kitchen, a large dining room, laundry room with washer/dryer, large bathroom with tub and shower, a warm and inviting living room with gas fireplace, and a bedroom with a full size bed.
The second floor has a large master bedroom with a king bed, its own bath with shower, a gas stove, and a lovely sitting area. Across the hall is a large bedroom with two twin beds and an alcove with two wicker chairs and a bookcase full of books. Large windows in both rooms brings the outdoors in, and views of Schoodic Mountain can take your breath away. Both upstairs bedrooms have air-conditioning.
This home has lots of natural light, fields, woods, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and is often visited by turkeys, deer, raccoons, porcupines, foxes, eagles, and moose.
Luxury linens, lush towels, beach towels, a well-equipped kitchen, games, books, outdoor games (croquet, basketball, badminton), all help to make you feel cozy and well cared for.
Far enough from everything to feel secluded and close enough to everything to thrive.

About Mary and David Henry
Mary Henry was raised in Lamoine, left for many years, and returned 20 years ago to visit her parents. While visiting, she met her husband David while out for a walk around the Shore Road in Lamoine. David was the pastor of Lamoine Baptist Church for 25 years. David and Mary have two teenage children.
Mary and David Henry purchased this farmhouse in 2003
Why Mary and David Henry chose Lamoine
This lovely home has been in our family for generations. We bought the house from Mary's father, renovated it, and lived there up until 2013 when we moved closer to Bangor. We love the land, the blueberries, the town, the people, and the proximity to everything else we love. It is where our family still gathers and makes memories.
What makes this farmhouse unique
The two gas fireplaces, even in the middle of summer, offer an ambience and warmth that is always soothing and inviting. Air conditioning in the master bedroom and twin bedroom upstairs offer relief from the humidity of summer, and makes sleeping an absolute pleasure. The hand-hewn beams speak of the effort that went into building this home in the early 1800's. Our home is surrounded by woods, fields, expansive lawn, apple trees, blueberry fields and the sound of peepers, and the call of eagles flying over head.
Guestbook comments from the owner
The whole family agrees this has been our best place to stay, ever! From the minute I entered, I could tell there was a special, warm feel to this place. There were so many unexpected extras so perfect for our family. We love art and reading so your choice of paintings on the walls was delightful and shelves full of books enriching. Our 13 year old read 5 hefty volumes while we were here! The younger kids explored outside and savored apples and blueberries along the way. We put the games to good use too. I think you have everything here that makes it feel like home. I especially liked the well stocked kitchen with dishes to make the simplest foods feel special. We enjoyed our outings as much as being here too. Acadia holds childhood memories for me and we did a lot there with the kids; biked around Eagle Lake and Jordan Pond, hiked Precipice Trail, up and down Dorr Mt and than Cadillac, had lots of happy times on Bar Island and eating our way through Bar Harbor. So many great times as a family! Thank you for providing such a haven. We surely hope to come back here again! (from South Carolina)
