Seasonal Antique Country Farmhouse in Lincolnville
A spacious, rural home only 15 minutes from Camden. You'll have plenty of room to spread out in our five bedroom antique farmhouse set on two acres of lawn with 54 more acres of rolling fields and woodlands and a magnificent view of the Camden Hills. The midcoast area is a tremendous vacation destination, but most rental properties are located in village or lakeside settings, which can be noisy. Our farmhouse offers a quiet retreat, yet is only minutes from Camden and other area towns, like Belfast, Rockport and Rockland. Lincolnville was voted one of the top 20 small towns in the US! Begin your day with coffee or tea on the deck or in one of our Adirondack chairs on the lawn. Hike through our own woods and fields, or from nearby trailheads in Camden Hills State Park. Biking can be great fun, since traffic isn't too bad once you're off Rte 1, and most of the secondary roads offer scenic vistas. Swim in Levenseller Pond, a five minute walk down our street, or at the town beach on Norton's Pond, two miles away in Lincolnville center, or in Penobscot Bay at Lincolnville beach, just 10 minutes away. Tour the several wineries located within a 30 minute drive, including the Cellardoor winery located right in Lincolnville. There are also several lighthouses within an hour's drive. The closest is on Islesboro, a short ferry ride from Lincolnville Beach. At the end of your day, pick up fresh cooked-to-order lobsters from the local lobster fisherman, and dine al fresco on our lawn, enjoying the mountain view. Of course, there are dozens of wonderful restaurants in the local area, if you don't want to eat at home. Acadia National Park is a 90-minute drive - close enough for day trips, and a must-visit for any Maine vacation. Camden, Rockport, Rockland and Belfast all offer a wealth of cultural, recreational and shopping opportunities.
We have renovated our family homestead and are offering it for weekly rental from late Spring through early Fall. The house, built sometime prior to 1830 based on the accordian lathe we found under the plaster, includes five spacious bedrooms and is fully furnished. My grandfather 'updated' the kitchen in the 1920s and converted the pantry into a bathroom in the 1930s, personally building all of the cabinetry in both rooms. An interesting historical note: our farm had one of the first indoor bathrooms in Lincolnville, and we're still using the original sink! The first floor includes a large eat-in farmhouse kitchen, bathroom, living room, den and two bedrooms. The front bedroom, called Emmie's room, has a double bed. The back bedroom (called the back bedroom) has a twin-sized trundle bed. A spacious front entry hallway leads upstairs to a new (in 2015) second bathroom and three more bedrooms - Barbara's room has a double bed, Robyn's bedroom has an old-fashioned 3/4 bed, and Rita's room offers a double bed and a twin bed. In addition to these bedrooms that can accommodate eleven people, there is a daybed in the den where one more person could sleep, if needed. We are fully stocked with books from the 19th and 20th centuries, jigsaw puzzles and vintage board games. We also have a pretty extensive library of Maine's native son, Stephen King - the master of suspense fiction - whose novels frequently take place in secluded Maine towns. You haven't experienced the full impact of a Stephen King novel until you've read it in a secluded Maine farmhouse!TripAdvisor property ID 4470426...Read more

Additional Location Information
Follow Rte. 173 northwesterly out of Lincolnville center about 1.5 miles. High Street is a left, just before Levenseller Pond. Our house is the second farmhouse on the right, about 3/10 of a mile down High St. It's a large, rambling, white farmhouse with a large front deck and two attached sheds, set on two acres of lawn with an ancient maple tree and several apple and pear trees. One of our large hay fields is directly across the road, which gives us a great view of the rolling field and the Camden Hills. The driveway is just past the house, and parking is behind the house.
“The Farm has a charming, relaxing ambiance, with lovely views.”

My experience at the Farm is always an enjoyment. The house is charming with lovely views of the surounding mountains. Robyn supplies her Guests with everything you may need.
The Farm is conveniently located with in short driving distances to local beaches, the town of Camden, which offers all sorts of cultural events during the Summer Season. There is no shortage of things to do--or simply "veg" and enjoy the Farm!

Our family of 6 spent most of last summer at this Lindolnville farmhouse and we felt right at home. The location was surprisingly convenient to Camden and Belfast where we spent a lot of time. Our kids swam every evening at Levensellor after sailing camp in Camden. We were thrilled to have been able to spend so much time here!

The farm was a wonderful place for our Maine vacation. We were made welcome and informed of all the local sights, sounds and experiences available to us. We were comfortable and enjoyed the rustic setting. I would recommend to anyone looking to visit the authentic side of Maine, away from the hustle and bustle of the city and tourist heavy areas.

I have stayed at "the farm" many times and love it more every time. The front deck is perfect for lazy morning coffee, and the whole house is wonderfully spacious. Very convenient to Camden, Belfast, and even acadia Nat'l Park is a day trip away. Always love visiting!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week in June. After staying at various B&Bs; in the area, we were looking for something a bit more budget-friendly and private. This house was perfect--extremely quiet and secluded, and way cheaper than staying at a B&B; for a week. We wanted to get away from city life, and we got what we came for! We went on some wonderful walks through the property's fields and trails, and were well situated to drive to nearby hiking trails. The front porch was perfect for stargazing, and we enjoyed most of our meals out there as well. The house itself was as described-- despite having undergone recent renovations, it had a charming, antique feel. One of my favorite things was the huge old kitchen. There was plenty of room to cook, and it was fully stocked with kitchen tools. We found a cute general store a few miles away, so on the nights where we didn't feel like going to one of the restaurants in Belfast, Camden or Lincolnville Beach, I was able to put together a pretty decent meal! There were plenty of large windows, so we had a nice breeze coming through on hot days. Our bedroom was clean and comfortable, and had lovely antique furniture. All in all, this house was a perfect place to relax and get away from it all, while still being close to the restaurants, shops, hiking and wineries in the area. I look forward to returning this summer!
