Serene parklike setting on 11-acres with 1,300-ft of frontage on Norway Lake. Newly renovated 1 bedroom apartment with full kitchen in historic farmhouse has separate access for complete independence. Only 35 min to Sunday River & 1 mile to downtown Norway. Direct connection to miles of hiking, biking & ski trails on Shepherd's Farm Preserve. Fish from our dock, use our canoes and kayaks, rent boats from the local marina or watch abundant wildlife from the deck - unlimited outdoor activities!

The space
The farmhouse sits atop a hill overlooking Norway Lake. You'll have views of the lake (partial in the summer), pastures and forest from your kitchen and living room windows. You can watch deer, bald eagles, fox, and porcupines and hear the loons and owls from your bed. The house is approximately 400-ft from the lake and sits on a hill 50-ft above the lake. The farm has been in existence since the 1700's and the current house was built in 1918 with major renovations in 1990 and in 2021. There are 6 acres of pasture with many apple trees , and an additional 5+ acres of woods along the shoreline with paths to explore.

Complete renovation of the 790 square-foot apartment was completed in May 2021. The full kitchen is stocked with pots and pans, utensils and dishes and basic spices. In the summer, you are welcome to use the picnic table and propane grill on the deck which overlooks the lake. Wifi in the house and a cell tower atop a nearby ridge provide reliable communication to be able to work remotely, if desired. Large screen, smart TV in the living room allows connection to your Netflix account, Youtube, and the internet.

Where you’ll be

Norway, Maine, United States

Our farm is just a few minutes from downtown Norway with shopping and restaurants, but you'll be out in the country. Adjoining our 11 acres is 271 acres of conservation land managed by the Western Foothills Land Trust with hiking and biking trails that meander along the shore and through the wetlands that feed Norway Lake. A parking lot 400-ft down the road serves the conservation area or you can walk our trails to the area. Norway Lake is a 987 acre lake with a perimeter of nearly 12 miles. The lake is known for its bass fishing and is also stocked with rainbow trout. Other lakes such as Sebago, Thompson, and Long Lake are a short drive away.

During your stay

We want our guests to be comfortable and have the privacy or personal interaction that they desire. We will be here most evenings and during parts the day and are available to help with input on area activities, restaurants, hikes, and provide help with boating as needed. Feel free to stop in to say hello, but if you prefer to be on your own, we understand that too! The unit has a separate entrance from the rest of the house and has its own kitchen, so you determine the level of interaction that is right for you.
