Rusticate in style! Enjoy a carefree and relaxing Maine vacation at Fox Hollow Farm. This comfortably elegant antique farmhouse is fully equipped with all modern conveniences--cable, wi-fi, full country kitchen--plus games and books for cozy evenings, and much more. The decor is elegant, cheerful and comfortable. Surrounded by woods and fruit trees with tidal views of Raccoon Cove and the mountains of Acadia National Park, the house is serene and secluded, yet it’s perfectly situated for exploring...it's a short walk or bike ride down a quiet country road to sandy beaches and a local swimming hole; you can explore the shoreline and islands of Frenchman’s Bay by kayak or sailboat; and Acadia National Park is under a half-hour away. Visit the Farm when you're ready to slow down and enjoy a perfect vacation in Down East Maine.
Some of our prior guests' comments:
"This was truly one of our most wonderful family vacations. The
farmhouse is gorgeous, the property lovely and the location absolutely
"Family meals in the kitchen, frisbee in the yard, and Lamoine State
Beach were excellent things to do. Thank you for your tasteful and
"What a great place! We loved exploring the house and yard. The kids
picked raspberries along the periphery, and we had a terrific football
game in front of the barn."
"We feel like we've found a real jewel. None of us was ready to leave,
and we can't wait to come back!"
Thank you, as always, for lending us your lovely and welcoming home. For one week a year it has become our home away from home, a refuge from the trials and sadness of life. We greet this house joyfully every year and leave it regretfully, but full of hope for another year's respite and joy and lovely peace!
New family member Otis loved the crib. Smell of the air, red chairs on the porch -- citronella candles for evenings -- OMG, I look forward to the hammock here all year.
Fox Hollow Farm is in Lamoine, a stone's throw from Acadia National
Park. It's an area just as beautiful, but with fewer people. The area
is ideal for hiking, kayaking, climbing, sailing, birding, fishing,
beachcombing, moose-watching--you name it. Lamoine Beach is one of
very few sandy beaches in the area, and one of the locals' best-kept
secrets: good swimming, warm(er) water, picnic tables and barbecues, a
boat launch and good musselling--against the picturesque backdrop of
Mt. Desert and the Porcupine Islands.
And there are other adventures: explore the little villages on Mt Desert
Island or up and down the coast--take a drive down through Blue Hill
and Penobscot to Deer Isle, or up to Schoodic and the Canadian border
to the east. There are antique stores, flea markets, farmers' markets,
and art galleries to discover (a favorite local character is Wild
Mountain Man Ray Murphy, who sculpts with a chainsaw). Gourmet
restaurants, brewpubs, country diners (and of course lobster shacks)
all offer up delicious local fare. Right down the road you can visit
the goats at Seal Cove Farm, renowned for their goat cheese. Live
local music shows and dances are held just about every weekend in the
summer, along with fairs and festivals showcasing locally grown
produce, crafts, and wares.
At the house we keep a guest book with suggestions for activities,
trips, restaurants, etc., along with a number of guidebooks, maps, and
