Eastport Estate Rental Photos and Description

Retreats and events for 300+ are available. Sleeps 2-60, 30 BR on 11 Locations.

Sitting amongst the apple and lilac trees is our beautifully restored 1790's Captain Jacob Lincoln farmhouse. Enjoy morning coffee on the porch, arrange for a lobster bake on the shore, walk the meandering trails that make their way through 62 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 Rossport for shopping, arts, whale watching and the like. We have laying hens for eggs and a large garden supplying organically grown vegetables. 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.

About Ross Furman

Ross lived in Eastport as a child and this is where he wanted to come back to own a piece of his childhood, he purchased the 1790 Jacob Lincoln Farm in 1987. Ross' passion for Rossport's natural beauty and the innate character and culture of the surrounding region.

Ross Furman purchased this estate in 1987

Why Ross Furman chose Eastport

There are sixty-two private acres with a mile and a half of ocean frontage that hug the shoreline and provide an intimate relation with wildlife and fauna that are our backdrop for daily living. 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 truly authentic Maine existence 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 estate 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.

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.

Families with children of all ages can enjoy a whale-watching trip aboard the one of the two schooners based here (Eastport Windjammers, or can charter a smaller boat for a deep-water fishing trip within sight of land. Sights to see within Passamaquoddy and Cobscook Bays include the Old Sow whirlpool, half a dozen lighthouses, eagles, seals, porpoises and so much more. Back onshore, you can go to the Saturday Farmers’ Market (held indoors on rainy days) across from the Eastport Arts Center, for fresh local produce and to hear music performed by the Eastport Strings, our youth string orchestra. You can walk the rocky beaches looking for treasures like sea glass and shells. Raye’s Mustard offers tours of its 1903 mill that produces 19 varieties of gourmet mustard. Historic Eastport is on view at the Barracks Museum on Washington Street and at several other sites (Border Historical Society. If you enjoy hiking, there are several trails at Shackford Head State Park, all with beautiful ocean views.

Just across Passamaquoddy Bay and accessible by car ferry and road is the Roosevelt Campobello International Park on Campobello Island, New Brunswick.
