Great stay in the countryside, plenty of interesting things nearby

  • 5 of 5

My two kids (15 and 19) and I had a great stay at the Salt Pond Farmhouse. We enjoyed this old but well kept farmhouse which is surrounded by a nice property. The road nearby is quiet, the deck by the kitchen is great for breakfast, and the kitchen even if a bit tight is very well usable and fully furnished with all cooking accessories. Plenty of towels and blankets are available. There is no a/c but the temperature on the ground floor was always comfortable (cross-ventilation helped), while the bedrooms upstairs do get a bit warm during the day but cool off at sunset. The house is nicely decorated and furnished in style with the look and the age of it. Internet access was good and reliable. The owners were great and left plenty of books, magazines and itinerary information. If like us you do not mind and actually enjoy a rustic setting with old but clean and functional furniture, and plenty of comforts, this is a nice place to stay.

Owner's Response: We so enjoyed this delightful family staying for a week at The Salt Pond Farmhouse and how much they enjoyed and appreciated this great old house. They captured the feel of the farmhouse beautifully where we have also stayed for many summers in the past. This family enjoyed being right here on Salt Pond, but also explored all about and created adventures for themselves on the Blue Hill peninsular and beyond. We invite others to have this same great experience.

Gracious farm house, rooted in 19th century, with 21st century amenities, on tidal salt pond.

  • 5 of 5

Our family lived at Salt Pond House for 2 weeks in August of 2017. We had our grandchildren visiting for part of the time (an infant and 3-year-old), a young adult son, and ourselves, in our 60's. We each enjoyed different parts of this surprising home and its location. The baby loved to be on the screened porch or the deck feeling the sea breezes blowing across him, listening to the bronze wind chimes. The 3-year-old loved picking apples from the early apple tree as well as walks down to the salt pond to check on the action there, and picking flowers along the way, trips to the screened gazebo, doing puzzles, playing games, or reading stories on the sunny porch. The young adult son enjoyed a cozy den to do some reading and academic work--complete with desk and good lighting and a beehive oven. We elders enjoyed the feeling of a beloved home filled with antiques, thoughtful artwork and textures and colors and reading material. Having lived in several antique homes, we love their warmth and character. But even if you aren't an "old house" person, living in a home built in earlier times is satisfying on many levels. It makes one wonder about the families of long ago who carved out their agricultural lives by the edge of the sea in a challenging landscape, beautiful in August, daunting in February. That said, the lovely owners of this beauty, have endowed it with new windows, a sky light, and fresh paint, creatively crafted good space from attic eaves, up-to-date electrical and internet service, but they have managed to preserve its modest origins and lack of pretension--as befits its Maine location. They are gardeners, and have naturalized the yards with perennial flowers and mowed lawns and pathways down to the inlet, so that one always has a view of bobbing flowers when gazing outwards from the house.

The visit enriched our family life and restored our battered spirits with the quiet breathing of all those sea breezes and the natural beauty that surrounds. One of us is an astronomer and loved the deep dark night skies with the lack of light pollution.

We elders have enjoyed the Blue Hill community over the years with its excellent independent book store, library, chamber music at Kneisel Hall with its own colorful history, fresh seafood, Acadia National Park (not far). We have very happy memories of our stay and are delighted to encourage other families, big or small, to pass some time in this sweet and lovely home.

Owner's Response: We have loved this old farm house for years and this wonderful family embraced it with open arms and great appreciation as they shared the time with family. How delightful to find the 3 year old loving the early apples and we ask the family to take some home to her when they left. Seeing the family walk down to the Salt Pond each day was so lovely as grandchildren, adult children and grandparents strolled together. We always leave a lot of literature about the area in the house and this family found our most favorite places. During their stay we were able to share fresh peaches off our tree. Farmer's market, sitting on the back deck and using the gazebo, enjoying local music were favorites which pleased us so much. We hope they return again.

Quaint 200 year old farmhouse

  • 3 of 5

This 3 bedroom house is charming. Located in Sedgwick, ME and 7 miles from the Wooden Boat School. The owners have thought of everything. The grounds are full of flowers. They just need to add pictures of the bedrooms to their site.
