About Wendy & Ken Schweikert

Sunflower Farm is our home. Wendy & Ken love good food and wine, beautiful architecture and gardens, history, theatre, music, interesting people and worldwide travel. We're delighted to be your hosts in Maine and share the insider's secrets we have learned about the area we've called home for 4 decades. Also, Wendy is a Notary Public and thereby authorized to perform marriages by the State of Maine.

Wendy & Ken Schweikert purchased this apartment in 1993

Why Wendy & Ken Schweikert chose Blue Hill

Sunflower Farm is a gorgeous property with a fresh water stream flowing into the Salt Pond, a 4-mile long inlet from the ocean. Sited on a shallow tidal cove bordered by Carleton Island, home to a nesting pair of bald eagles, osprey, blue herons, ducks and seals, it is a Maine paradise. Local Abenaki tribes once used this land as their summer camping grounds.

What makes this apartment unique

You'll appreciate use of this exclusive, private estate and the quiet beauty of natural surroundings. Sunflower Farm has 4 acres to explore, filled with gardens, squirrels, birdsong, and several separate outdoor seating areas in sun or shade for enjoying a good book or breathing in the beautiful water views.

50th Anniversary

My wife and I were at Sun Flower Carriage House in August of 2014. What a lovely place. Mornings on the deck were "heaven". Very clean, quiet and private. Salt Pond offers wonderful peaceful views with frequent sightings of wildlife.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the most relaxing stay while at the Sunflower Farm. All the other reviews were accurate and the location could not have been more peaceful. The home owners have thought of so many small details that even staying in to cook a meal and enjoy the glorious view is not a hassle. I would highly recommend this retreat.

PERFECT and PEACEFUL

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the Carriage House for seven days. Everything about the carriage was very comfortable and perfect for what we wanted and needed. Every morning we woke up looking out at the amazing salt pond. The view of the pond was different everyday depending on the tide, time of day and the weather. The property was very peaceful and private with some cool little areas to relax and enjoy the surroundings. The Carriage House and Blue Hill was perfectly located for every thing we wanted to do on the first part of our trip. The area has a lot to discover and see and when we asked Ken and Wendy they had a wealth of information about Maine and the surrounding areas. We loved the Carriage House and the Blue Hill area and highly recommend both,

A peaceful,lovely place for couples

  • 5 of 5
Our Stay at Sunflower Farm's carriage house was ideal. The accomodations were just like having all the amenities of "home". The rooms were bright and very clean.
The pond at sunset is lovely from the private balcony and our hosts Ken and Wendy treated us like family with respect for our privacy yet available to our needs if necessary. A definite "10".

A Jewel of a Location

  • 5 of 5
We just loved it- everything! Salt Pond is beautiful - bring binoculars and look for the eagles and warblers and blue heron! The apartment was immaculate with so many special touches - comfortable and colorful. It was thoughtfully decorated. The Blue Hill area is lovely with many places to explore and full of talented artists and artisans. Spectacular Acadia is a short drive away, but it was oh-so-nice to get back to our serene getaway in Blue Hill! Many thanks to Wendy and Ken for sharing offering this opportunity to get to know this area of the coast. They were so responsive to our questions, etc. from the beginning and made our first experience with Home Away a real 5 star plus experience!
