CHARMING MAINE FARMHOUSE FOR YOUR LARGE FAMILY, WEDDINGS...

Sedgwick House Rental Photos and Description

House, 8 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

Edgehill is a large Maine 'summer cottage' with eight + bedrooms on a huge 120 acre parcel, perfect for family vacations and reunions. It is in Sargentville, a quiet village, a 'suburb' of Sedgwick. This historic farmhouse looks down across pasture and woodland to 500' of shore frontage on the famous sailing lanes of Eggemoggin Reach. 100 more acres stretch behind the house, with extensive trails through the woods, blueberries to pick and your own private pond.

A REVIEW FROM A FORMER GUEST:

…I am tanned and salty with a renewed spirit and revived heart. I have shells in my pocket and clay pots drying on my dashboard. This home you have made welcome to unknown creatures is a special treasure. Thanks for sharing it. It was like being at my Grandma’s

The property has been in our family since my grandfather bought it in 1905. There are currently seven descendants who own it.

Margaret Bixby purchased this house in 1905

Why Margaret Bixby chose Sedgwick

They bought it because they thought the children needed 'the good salt air.

What makes this house unique

an unexpected extra: the night skies are clear and dramatic on dark nights, perfect for watching the constellations and planets, our Milky Way, and the midsummer Perseid showers of shooting stars.

A real Maine experience

  • 4 of 5
We rented Edgehill for a week and hosted our wedding here. It is a beautiful home in a beautiful area on the Maine coast. We truly were able to give our guests a real Maine experience with a pig roast, live band and party in the barn, and campfires. The house comfortably slept almost 20 friends and family, including two infants. The house has a gorgeous porch, a sleeping porch, a nature path leading to a scenic pond, a huge barn fitting for a party or wedding reception, and a beautiful backyard complete with a campfire pit that's perfect for yard games. Our only complaints from our guests were that the beds were quite uncomfortable and while the house does sleep lots of people, there are only two toilets.
The owner was professional, prompt with communication and questions, flexible, and friendly.
I would highly recommend this site for a truly rustic Maine farmhouse/barm wedding or vacation.

Perfect place for a fall wedding in Maine!

  • 5 of 5
My (new) husband and I just got back from spending 10 days at Edgehill, with our entire wedding party and most of our family staying there as well! We had folks from California, North Carolina, Virginia, and Massachusetts all staying under that one roof - and it was lovely. One night we hosted a 40-person rehearsal dinner on the porch (with Maine lobsters, of course!). The next day we had our wedding ceremony in the backyard under the apple trees, with a seated dinner and dancing in the barn (with about 80 guests). We were nervous about fitting so many people in the barn, but it easily accommodated 11 8-ft tables, a sweetheart table up on the stage, the DJ's table, a dessert table, and the bar - all within the barn - with room for dancing in front of the stage! The barn could easily hold more tables, if the dance floor space was used. All of our guests were wow-ed by the property, the lovely outdoor space, the special feeling in the barn and the house-- so much to see and appreciate. The porch and outdoors offered a lot of hang-out and mingle space for guests after the wedding, so people could spread out and visit comfortably. While we weren't spending time preparing for (or recovering from!) the wedding, we visited towns on Deer Isle, found great food at El El Frijoles (also a great dessert catering option!), and explored the beach (.2 miles from the house, and gorgeous). I would highly recommend Edgehill to anyone looking for a perfect wedding venue, or just for a great family vacation locale. Oh, and did I mention the fireplace? So cozy chatting in front of the fire on those crisp fall evenings.

Perfect for our fammily

  • 5 of 5
We had family travel from Oregon, Wyoming, California, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, and Maine. Everyone raved about the house. The listing description was great and we felt at home as soon as we arrived. The owner does so many things that makes everyone feel welcome. We enjoyed the mill pond, the beach, the barn, the porch, the hike along the path, the house, and all the surroundings, I would certainly recommend this property to people planning a gathering of family and/or friends. We also hiked Blue Hill, went to Acadia National Park, Stonington, the Rockefeller gardens on MDI, the Brooklin boat yard, and picked lots of blueberries on my son's property. We enjoyed having a meal catered by Frank Bianco; the lobster bake was wonderful. This was the best vacation I have had in years!

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having you stay at Edgehill as much as you enjoyed your stay! My favorite quote from the week is when I came to pick up the trash- one of the grandchildren came up to me me to say that we needed to add another rope swing in the barn (there are two and both were being used), because "they are so much fun!" We love sharing our house with families that truly appreciate all that it has to offer.
Hope you can come back sometime. We'd love to see you there again!

Great time for family reunion

  • 5 of 5
Our Family of 10 adults and 5 kids spent a week and had a great time. Swimming in the mill pond, searching the flats at low tide, playing in the barn, the kids had plenty to do. Its a beautiful old farm house, warm and inviting, plenty of space for everyone. I highly recommend.

Owner's Response: It is always such a pleasure to have people stay at Edgehill who love the place as much as our family does. The ambiance of our rambling house invites guests to relax and enjoy the quiet and beauty of downeast Maine. The Blue HiIl peninsula area also offers many things to do: art galleries, music performances, theater productions, craft and gift shops, and restaurants are just a few of the many things you and your family and friends can enjoy while staying here. Hiking, swimming, sailing, tennis, golf, kayaking ... the list goes on. So, whether you want to be out and about or simply sit on the porch or by the fireplace with a good book, Edgehill is a great place to stay.
