Rusticate in style at Fox Hollow Farm! This comfortably elegant old farmhouse has been lovingly renovated and is fully equipped with all mod cons, from wi-fi, smart TV, and bluetooth stereo to fully-equipped gourmet kitchen. Surrounded by woods and fruit trees and views of the mountains of Acadia, the house is only a half-hour away from Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, but serene and secluded enough for a walk or bike ride down quiet country roads to our local sandy beach or our swimming hole. As of Spring 2017, we’ve completed some significant upgrades to the house, including a stylishly remodeled bathroom, new high-performance washer/dryer, and fresh paint in several rooms.
Inside the House: The story goes that the sunroom was originally the General Store for the area in the late 1700s; the shelves today display vintage glassware. The bright, open kitchen is a favorite spot to hang out, with bench seats around the table and and beautiful views of Sargeant Mountain. The decor is elegant, cheerful, and comfortable. Each room is painted a different color. Vintage furniture includes incredibly comfy couches, a large desk, and seating for up to six. Whimsical details throughout the house are designed to bring a smile.
Outside: The farmhouse is on two+ acres surrounded by open grass and a big red barn, with not a neighbor in sight. A front porch under the lilacs provides a pleasant spot to relax in one of the Adirondack chairs and take in the surrounding beauty. The back patio, with a new picnic table and setee, makes for memorable evening gatherings and barbecues. The fragrant perennial garden out front attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. The wildlife here is spectacular: you’re likely to spot eagles, osprey, and a variety of warblers in the woods. Foxes and deer are not uncommon; we’ve also seen moose, bear and bobcat from the kitchen window. At dusk, you may hear the drumming of a grouse or the ethereal song of a thrush. Fireflies provide lively evening entertainment. Spring brings the timberdoodles and spring peepers, and in the autumn, the foliage is phenomenal. Outdoor amenities also include a charcoal barbecue, kayaks, bicycles, beach chairs, and coolers. You'll also find croquet, bocce ball, and horseshoes to take out on the lawn.
