    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. The calendar is for the Cape. Ask us about our waterfront Farmhouse...or find us by entering Bold Colorful Life.....

We loved our visit. We were in town for our daughter's wedding, and needed a house that slept 10 people. This met our need in every way. The beds were comfortable and there is enough space that we did not bump into each other. The home is in gorgeous shape, and Melissa was available when we needed her for any... more

We were 5 couples visiting for Labor Day weekend (3 nights) and we all had more than enough room to amble around in this very spacious and homey farm house. Melissa is very gracious and accommodating. I most enjoyed sitting on the large deck in back which has a view of the Back River. The house is located in a... more

The Farmhouse is a fantastic house. Truly a home away from home. My teenage daughter exclaimed, "this place is awesome!" Everyone was very comfortable and happy with their own rooms and bathrooms. My 86 year old mother was very happy with her bathroom which was handicap equipped. The kitchen is well equipped and the large barn door kitchen table is... more
