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

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.
