Stearns Pond Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 6 Bedrooms, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

19th century farmhouse set in the foothills of the White Mountains. Located in Sweden, Maine -- between Lovell, Fryeburg, and Bridgton.

Six bedrooms, three bathrooms, and an oversized kitchen that features the original fireplace hearth with granite mantel and brick oven.

The kitchen opens onto a spacious screen porch with long farmers table for summer dining with sweeping mountain views and stunning sunsets.

Private wilderness beach with a sandy bottom is perfect for toddlers and swimmers of all ages and abilities. Beach includes cabana, kayak, canoe, sailfish and swim raft. There are no motor boats allowed on the lake.

The farmhouse sits on a small mountain on 25 acres amidst two open fields with a breathtaking panorama of the Presidentials and the White Mountains.

The private beach, surrounded by deep woods with striking views of granite mountainface, is nestled on the lake, 1-1/2 miles from the house, an easy 3-4 minutes away.

The Perfect Place for Total Relaxation, Back-to-Basic/Quality Family Time & Reconnection w/ Nature

The Perfect Place for Total Relaxation, Back-to-Basic/Quality Family Time & Reconnection w/ Nature
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were blessed to have our very small, intimate, outdoor wedding in one the gorgeous fields and it was everything we hoped it would be. We stayed for the remainder of the week as our family vacation/honeymoon and it was delightful.

The house has an immediate feeling of comfort, much like the one you get when you return home after being away for a while. The antique style suited us well and the entire house is furnished with nostalgic, classy touches. We had everything we needed, especially in the kitchen and this saved us a great deal of packing/unpacking. While there is a TV and I understand that the internet is coming to this corner of the world, we greatly appreciated the opportunity to detach from our online habits and instead spent solid quality time playing games, reading books, playing music, and cooking big meals that were enjoyed on the screened porch with a breathtaking view and magnificent breeze. The porch and kitchen were our favorite rooms to spend time in.

Walking the fields at sunset was unforgettable. The yard is so beautifully landscaped; it reminded me of the secret garden at times. And finally, the beach was beyond serene. I've never had a more private, peaceful, wilderness beach experience and I've lived in Maine almost my entire life! We left feeling totally satisfied and with many unforgettable memories.

A family freunion

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 21 members was looking for an additional space to have a family reunion.
My house in Sweden, Maine was too small to accommodate everybody. The farmhouse was the ideal solution. It was the first house built in Sweden and has been beautifully restored.
It offered many activities such as climbing Mount Sabbatus, canoeing on the Saco river and swimming in Keyes pond. Everyone returned home with the best of memories.

PERFECT FOR FAMILY SUMMER VACATION IN MAINE

  • 5 of 5
The Farmhouse was a perfect home base for our extended family of 11 spanning 3 generations, from one year old to mid-sixties. We had everything we needed and it was big enough for all of us to be together, whether eating on the porch, playing games on the endless fields, or roasting marshmallows at the fire pit behind the barn. The many rooms allowed us to have space to read, play board games, and even watch a movie. The location was great -- amazing views; easy access to the pond which was heaven for paddling and swimming, especially for the kids; a traditional country store with a counter and tables for basic but delicious food; and, for the necessities of life, a short distance from groceries in Bridgton with its quaint shops, hiking paths, and helpful public library. As we packed up to leave, a quick but very scientific poll confirmed that one and all couldn’t wait to return.

Great escape!

  • 5 of 5
When you've been working hard there's nothing better than doing nothing, and there's no better place to do it than this charming historic farmstead in Western Maine. It is so still that you notice the silence right away - the fields, the mountains, acres to walk and explore. You can see the stars at brightly at night and watch the fireflies zip around from the screened in porch. The porch is my favorite part of the house -whether it's a crisp early morning watching the sun come up on the mountains, a mid-day nap, or a late night drink and chat. Build a cozy fire in the 200 year old kitchen hearth, read, spend time with family. It's like having a entire classic New England bed and breakfast to yourself. If you want activity Bridgton is a short hop away - Lovell (Stephen King country) is right down the road. An authentic Maine experience - it doesn't get any better.

The best aspects of New England country side all in one setting!

  • 5 of 5
We have been to the Johnson Farmhouse in Sweden Maine several times over the years, and each time we go home feeling like we have had a little piece of heaven for a week. The best part of going to the farmhouse is that you get so many different experiences, settings, and things to do that you never get bored. The classic antique farmhouse makes you feel like you're in another time with the big fireplace in the kitchen, the decor that is right out of an authentic bed and breakfast, and the wonderful screened porch where the breeze and the beautiful sunsets are worth the stay alone. One of my favorite things to do is to take our dog out in the morning to the two big fields that sit on top of the ridge and look out on to the breathtaking and expansive views of the presidential mountains. Then there's the lake. Just a two minutes to a private beach on a lake that looks out from one end to on of the near mountains. Of course, often we just take a picnic and stay at Keyes Pond for hours, reluctant to go back to the house. But another option that we all enjoy to mix in the outdoor activity is going into Bridgeton 10 minutes away. This is a classic New England town with many shops of all types (that the girls especially love), bookstores, restaurants, great movie theatre, and even a drive in!
It you want to golf there's a great country course that's been upgraded recently and it's a great track. Finally, you can find all sorts of hicking, local theatre, lakes, etc to keep you busy for a week if not two as we've done a couple of times.
Bottom line, you won't find a better blend of New England experience than the Johnson farmhouse.
