About this listing
A quaint bedroom with open hand hewed beams and painted hardwood floors with a very comfortable cast iron twin bed and a brand new mattress up a steep staircase in the oldest cape-style farmhouse in Perry, Maine. You will be surrounded by beauty- a vegetable garden to the south, a lake shore to the west, a stunning old barn and apple trees to the north and open fields and forest to the east.
Kendall Farm is a freshwater farm on the salty coast. Guests will enjoy 45-acres of fields and forest along the shores of Boyden Lake. Guests may enjoy a nap in the hammock, a paddle in our canoe or the zen of weeding. The property has been in our family for 5 generations. We have a heritage apple orchard, an organic garden with rhubarb, raspberries, grapes and blueberries. A very easy going cat named Seamus lives with us and we often have fowl of some sort, chickens or ducks on the property. Our barn has a ping-pong table and 2 awkward swings. We are located at the easternmost tip of the United States on the Bold Coast and Canadian border, the last relatively untouched frontier on the east coast.
Interaction with Guests
Depending on my work schedule we could have a meal together. I would be happy to share best kept secrets of the area--where to eat, drink, shop and explore.
Kendall Farm is conveniently situated with easy access to Canada, Roosevelt Cottage on Campobello, the Bold Coast, the Maine Ice Age Trail, the Schoodic International Sculpture Trail and the Downeast Sunrise Trail. We are a stone's throw away from Passamaquoddy Bay of the Bay of Fundy.
Lots of natural beauty, critters, artists, local foods and peace abound. Our guests may like to experience local foods, fresh and salt water, whale watching, quaint coastal fishing communities, the Passamaquoddy people and time to reconnect with themselves and nature.
There is a daily bus that departs and arrives from Bangor to Perry and there are a few taxis from Calais. You definitely need a car, a bicycle or excellent walking shoes.
Other Things to Note
We do ask for a two night minimum at the farm house. Washington County receives only 3% of Maine tourists so I promise you it is off the beaten path, beautiful, real and we are authentic and down-to-earth!
There is no smoking in the Kendall farmhouse or cottages and no pets allowed either. Seamus, my cat, is allowed in the farm house but not in the cottages. He knows this too.
