Rusticate in style! Whether you're looking for an action-packed family holiday, a romantic getaway, or a serene place to work on those memoirs, this beautiful vintage farmhouse is the perfect place to fall in love with Acadia and Downeast Maine.

The space

The farmhouse is situated on over two acres of open grass and fruit trees, surrounded by woods with not a neighbor in sight. Most rooms face south, with broad, bright views of Lucky's Field and the mountains of Acadia National Park beyond.

This old house is equipped with all modern conveniences, from wi-fi, smart TV, and bluetooth stereo to the fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, plus outdoor games and seating, a well-stocked library of books, and much more. The decor is elegant, cheerful, and comfortable. Each room is painted a different color. Vintage furniture includes incredibly comfy couches, a large desk, and seating for up to six. Whimsical details throughout the house are designed to bring a smile.

As of Spring 2017, we’ve completed some significant upgrades to the house, including a stylishly remodeled bathroom upstairs, new high-performance washer/dryer, and fresh paint in several rooms.

Outside: a front porch under the lilacs provides a pleasant spot to relax in one of the Adirondack chairs and take in the surrounding beauty. The back patio, with a new picnic table and setee, makes for memorable evening gatherings and barbecues. The fragrant perennial garden out front attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. The wildlife here is spectacular: you’re likely to spot eagles, osprey, and a variety of warblers in the woods. Foxes and deer are not uncommon; we’ve also seen moose, bear and bobcat from the kitchen window. At dusk, you may hear the drumming of a grouse or the ethereal song of a thrush. Fireflies provide lively evening entertainment. Spring brings the timberdoodles and spring peepers, and in the autumn, the foliage is phenomenal.

Outdoor amenities include a picnic table, a charcoal barbecue, kayaks (two singles and a double), bicycles (5 adult mountain bikes, 1-2 kid-size), as well as beach chairs, coolers, and clamming equipment you can take to the nearby beaches. You'll also find assorted games to take out on the lawn.

Guest access

Guests are free to make themselves at home at the farmhouse.

Interaction with guests

We live part time at the farmhouse, the remainder of the time in San Francisco. We have a local property manager who keeps an eye on things while we're gone.

Other things to note

Be aware that the doorway to the sailors' room (with twin beds) has a curtain, not a full door.

The house is ideally outfitted for 2-6 guests. Extra guests require prior approval.

It was fantastic experience for me and my family. This house is right out of a post card and so close to Acadia! Everything is exactly as described!

We spent a week in August at Fox Hollow Farm. The location in Lamoine is a nice, quiet jumping-off point for exploring Mt. Desert Island and neighboring towns. The house is charming, comfortable and well appointed. We had everything we needed for cooking family meals and bikes and kayaks for enjoying the outdoors. We followed Lee and Philip's suggestions regarding places to visit in Ellsworth, Blue Hill and Deer Isle and enjoyed their recommendations immensely. Access to water is very close by- just a few minutes drive to Racoon Cove or Blunt's Pond for swimming, kayaking, and fishing. Driving to Bar Harbor and Mt. Desert Island was a 30-40 minute trip, including slower traffic due to construction on Rt. 3. We found that we enjoyed the house and quiet so much, we really didn't want to leave! We have been visiting Maine every summer for the past five years. This recent visit was our favorite trip, and the house and excellent hosting by Lee and Philip were a large part of our enjoyment. We would definitely stay at Fox Hollow Farm again and highly recommend it.

Fox Hollow Farm is a beautiful cozy home, and we really enjoyed our stay. Very clean. Plenty of towels, linens and spare blankets. WiFi connection was great. Kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans/utensils, as well as an extensive spice rack! The only issue we had was that the water pressure wasn't great when multiple faucets were in use, but we just planned around it. Really quick drive to Bar Harbor, Ellsworth and local Lamoine spots! Thanks for a great stay!

Beautiful and relaxing country home. We visited with our dogs and friends and had such a relaxing getaway. Very close to Acadia national park without all the hustle and bustle. Would definitely recommend this stay.

Phillip and I are a little bit city mouse, a little bit country mouse. We keep a small home in San Francisco as well as a farmhouse in Maine. When we’re not here, we’re usually there.

Some of our favorite things: twangy guitars; sun and snow; meandering bike rides; time to read; working in the garden…honest work. We’re both creative-y types. My day job is designer, but I dream of farming some day. We both keep studios where we paint and draw and stuff.

We’re blessed to have a little foothold on each coast, and the opportunity to travel across country a few times a year, often by car and with dog in tow. Shifting perspectives regularly keeps us from getting too complacent about anything.

And we love sharing a bit of ourselves with like-minded travelers. We strive to provide for our guests a warm and inspiring home base for exploring new corners of the world, and hope that our guests leave rejuvenated, with spirit rekindled.
