Overview

Eastport House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 2 baths (10 people)

Sitting amongst the apple and lilac trees is our beautifully restored 1790's Captain Jacob Lincoln farmhouse. Enjoy morning coffee on the front porch, arrange for a lobster bake on the shore, walk the meandering trails that make their way through 60 private acres of field, forest, and beach. And, if you've never slept on an island, you will never sleep so sound. Town is 3 miles from the farm for shopping, arts, whale watching and the like. We have laying hens for eggs and a large garden supplying organically grown vegetables. Quoddy Bay Lobster can supply the seafood, or, Tides Mill Farm can supply organic dairy and meats, if you choose. We are an artist and entrepreneur who lovingly care for the gardens and landscape that surround our home. We would be happy to share history, culture, and the innate beauty that surrounds us. After a days excursion it might be nice to toast a glass of wine while enjoying an evening around the bonfire. We are known for being the first to see the sun rise, but our sunsets are magnificent, as well. What we offer is a beautiful place to stay while you entertain any of a variety of activities and interests - if you like art, kayaking, hiking, galleries, reading, boating, native arts, fresh air, nature, photography, bird watching, local theatre,history, or any of a number of possibilities, you will not be disappointed. We keep current events on our Facebook page and

About Ross Furman

Ross and Deb are both involved in, and run, the operations at Rossport Farms. Ross lived in Eastport as a child and this is where he wanted to come back to when he retired. Deb is an artist and shares Ross' passion for Rossport's natural beauty and the innate character and culture of the surrounding region.

Ross Furman purchased this house in 1987

Why Ross Furman chose Eastport

There are close to sixty acres that hug the shoreline and provide an intimate relation with wildlife and fauna that are our backdrop for daily living. Gentle alpacas reside in the pastures, hens provide eggs, local fishermen provide lobster and seafood, and our own organic garden supplies herbs, flowers, and vegetables....we wouldn't want to be anywhere else. We have had many guests return, year after year, and always look forward to the next visit. We feel that Eastport and Way Downeast are a truely authentic Maine existance and love it so much that we wanted to introduce this region to others seeking a less hectic, more genuine experience, rich with history, culture, and character. It's home.

What makes this house unique

One of the benefits of vacationing with the actual home owner available is that they truly want your experience to be exceptional. You have privacy and room to roam, but if you need anything, we are nearby to accommodate.

I would recommend this farm to anyone wanting to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of Northern Maine. The owners/hosts were beyond gracious with their attention to us and making our stay as pleasurable as possible. I hope to go back in future.

Owner's Response: It is always so rewarding to read the positive responses we get from our guests! With over sixty acres to maintain, and a mile of shoreline to preserve, we feel that we are privileged to be stewards of this spectacular down east sanctuary. Every year we are able to move closer to our goal of self - sustainability, while offering clean, comfortable, and unique accommodations that encourage an intimate, natural setting.
Our Facebook page will keep you posted as to what new additions and changes are being made - we hope to see you again 'where the sun first lights the sky, and where the stars shine brightest!'
Thanks Samantha, and we wish you much success with your new career!
Sincerely,
Deborah and Ross

spectacular farmhouse getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Rossport Farms was perfect! The host and hostess opened up their 18th century farmhouse to our family of six and we were awed by the eclectic, historic decor as well as by the fresh flowers in each room. The grounds were breathtaking and our kids didn't want to leave the property during our four day stay. (They loved feeding the alpacas and exploring the beach during the extreme high and low tides!) Their hospitality in sharing their unique retreat made us want to return. The nearby historic town of Eastport had a nice selection of restaurants and many interesting art galleries. We took the ferry over to Lubec, but in hindsight wished we had just stayed in downtown Eastport longer. The locals were extremely friendly and everyone seemed to know each other. We wish we could return for the Pirate Festival in September. (Check out the local Chamber of Commerce website for more info. about this family-fun annual event.) It is the ideal location for families, couples' getaways...anyone looking for a peaceful respite in an idyllic location.

Owner's Response: Dan and Teri,
We want you to know how much we enjoyed having you and your family visit Rossport Farms - all the way from the left coast! We are so fortunate to play host to large families on their annual holiday. We have hosted many special family reunions and this always leaves us with feelings of contentment and gratitude! There's so much to do - for everyone!
Wishing you all success and good health!
Sincerely,
Deborah and Ross
