Bold Colorful Life Farmhouse and Cape

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 an 1800s barn which sometimes holds the private Bold Colorful Life Gallery, filled with jewelry, photographs and paintings...sometimes holds wedding ceremonies.

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.
