We both grew up in the Northeast United States, and have traveled extensively throughout the US and Europe as well as Down Under. We enjoy quality accommodations when we travel, appreciate the extra thoughtfulness that can make a stay more pleasant, and strive to give that experience to our guests. You can learn more about the kind of accommodations we provide by visiting our other Home Away listings, #982785 and #989530.

Peter & Joy Cutrone purchased this apartment in 2000

We have capitalized on Peter's years of experience as an innkeeper in New England and our shared love of travel to bring you a warm cottage experience in a quintessentially American setting, a Maine farm. With the comforts and conveniences of home, and access to a greater range of activities than you can even do combine to give you a vacation experience that you’ll treasure for years to come.

Moment's Peace Farm is that rare property where every visitor greets us at the door saying, 'What a beautiful setting.' It just has that New England charm, not the least owing to the beautiful restored 19th Century barn that greets you among the rolling hills as you enter the property. There is a lovely pond a leisurely stroll through the fields, beautiful woods, farm pastures, an organic garden, free-ranging chickens, and even a friendly Samoyed to greet you when you arrive. Relax and restore in your private suite, or nestle in with a good book on your private back deck, keeping one eye out for visiting wildlife. Then pop into Portland for the day to take in the museums or visit Casco Bay or the surrounding beaches. You can explore all you'd like, then enjoy a moment's peace at the end of the day.

Great Quiet Location Just Outside Portland

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 14, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
My wife and I spent 4 wonderful nights here for our wedding anniversary. Hollis is about 25 minutes drive from Portland and is a scenic, quiet location. The guest apartment is new, very nicely maintained, with sunny window exposures. Peter and Joy were very cordial and the farm fresh eggs from the hen house were a real treat. For road cyclists there is a variety of road and off-road opportunities in the area. The best part of this location is its rural setting but, a very short drive to downtown Portland's many amenities. Great place for a quiet Get Away.
Owner's Response: Thank you, John, for sharing your experience. We hope to see you again! Best regards from Joy & Peter

This is an absolutely gorgeous place to stay & the owners are fantastic. We prepared our own dinners & really appreciated the non-stick pots/pans & outdoor grill - definitely a fully-equipped kitchen with very nice things. The guest house was spotless & beautifully decorated. Free wi-fi with an excellent signal strength was also a plus.
Owner's Response: Thank you, Peg - and thank you for sharing information about what you enjoyed. We appreciate it, and very much appreciate your noticing the extra effort we make to ensure your stay is comfortable. Come again any time!

We greatly enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment on a farm in the country. The host family was very hospitable, generous and gracious. We highly recommend this home away from home.
Owner's Response: Thank you, Najad! We really enjoyed meeting you and Carole, and exchanging ideas and a few foods, too! It was great to see you make the most of your stay and see a lot of what the surrounding area has to offer. Best wishes from Joy & Peter.

We truly enjoyed our 5-week stay at Moment's Peace Farm! Everything we needed and more was readily provided: exceptionally clean surroundings;comfortable queen size bed; TV and internet; swimming pool, air conditioning and fans to cool off; cooking supplies and outdoor grill; fresh eggs; and grounds to explore. The best part was that we felt as if we were staying with friends. We wholeheartedly recommend a stay with Peter and Joy at their delightful guesthouse.

A Dream Come True!

We were looking for a quiet, clean and comfortable place to vacation; at Moment's Peace Farm we found all that and much more! My husband and I were incredibly impressed with the picturesque scenery, the inviting, immaculate and tastefully decorated guesthouse, the friendly farm animals, and most of all, our warm and caring hosts, Peter and Joy. They went out of their way to ensure we would have a lovely vacation in Maine, helping us plan our activities by providing us with information and excellent suggestions. The farm fresh organic eggs made all the difference in our homemade waffles! We enjoyed visiting the beach in Scarborough, biking through the marshes to Portland, tubing on the Saco River and visiting the quaint towns of Kennebunkport and Ogunquit. All in all, we had a fabulous vacation. Thank you Joy and Peter!

Moment’s Peace Farm is an 80-acre hobby farm as well as a residence. We have a restored 19th Century barn and extensive fields and woods, as well as a detached building in which your private vacation apartment is located. You are surrounded by beautiful pastoral views, and you can immediately access walking, swimming, sledding, cross-country skiing, lawn games and wildlife viewing right outside your door. Tennis and golf are right up the road. The Saco River is easily accessible for some fine canoeing, whether flat water or white water, whichever you seek. There are small country stores and a range of restaurants nearby, from diners and pizza places to pub dining and Thai food. A full grocery store is within easy access. Three quaint libraries are also in our immediate area, as are many farms, as well as walking, skiing, equestrian, and snowmobile trails.

Then, within half an hour you can be in either the Kennebunks or Portland, where there are many sights to see. From first-class beaches to museums, art, architecture, cultural events and theatre, there is always something fun to do. Dine on the water, take a ferry to a Casco Bay island, or take a whale watch tour. Ride the Downeaster train to Boston and back in an easy day. Or, in an hour's drive, you can rent a boat on Sebago or Kezar Lakes, visit the mountains of Western Maine or be in the Whites for some world-class hiking. Moment's Peace Farm is very well situated to access any of a number of activities, without being either in the thick of the city or remote from amenities. You can do almost anything you'd like, and then enjoy the peace and quiet of the farm when you come home.
