Thistledown Farm's Sheep Shed Cottage was created by joining 2 handhewn post and beam barns. Located on the beautiful Thistledown Farm property, it is furnished with unique antiques and old barn finds. The sleeping loft is accessible only by a ship's ladder. Adults and kids alike LOVE it. It is a great place to kick back! The accommodations are rustic-more like "glamping" than a dolled-up seaside cottage. This is a seasonal space, and bookings are only available from mid-May to mid-October.

The space
Thistledown Farm's Sheep Shed Cottage abounds with rustic barn charm throughout. It has a large screened dining/sitting area with a fully equipped summer kitchen, comfortable separate living room space, bathroom, outdoor private hot water shower, and a sleeping loft. It is adjacent to a large stone terrace with a dining table, an outdoor fireplace, and a separate fire pit that is to die for. A bocce/croquet court completes the amenities. There is a fantastic freshwater swimming hole, saltwater boat launch, and 2 nature preserves are on our road within walking distance. You can't beat it!

Where you’ll be

Waldoboro, Maine, United States

Our neighborhood, if you want to call it that, is a 3 mile long dead-end road that runs right down the middle of our own little peninsula. It juts off the much larger and popular Pemiquid Peninsula here in mid-coast Maine. The residents are a mix of year-rounders and summer people.

We are blessed with saltwater swimming, kayaking and boating as well as one of the best little freshwater swimming holes you will ever experience. Well hidden and practically unknown, its granite cliffs are great for jumping off or use giant blocks for stepping in. Two land trust preserves on our road add to the surrounding natural beauty. Several neighbors offer occasional Yoga classes. An old schoolhouse/community center and 1800's seasonal church sometimes offer public suppers and concerts.

I am an inveterate collector of antiques and unique old barn finds. As a self-taught designer, I love to create structures, furniture, and what have you, from my years of collecting. When I retired, I designed and built my farm on the Dutch Neck peninsula located in mid-coast Maine where I host guests. It is a group of 1850's hand-hewn post and beam barns and sheds, one of which is my home. Adding a yurt and two safari tents I also designed a small quiet oasis in the woods on my property where one can go glamping – camping with style, and yet have access to all there is to see and do nearby in this beautiful part of the world. Finally, I am now making a private preserve where guests can walk through deep evergreen woods or kayak from the shores of a hidden cove and paddle to the sea. Come join us!
