This open-concept rental property is the annex of a larger summer rental home, and is nicely separated from the main house by a large barn. The interior is a pleasant mix of traditional features, such as the large fireplace and pine floors, but with a distinctly modern feel with a large central space, bright streamlined kitchen and new bath upstairs. The 2 bedrooms upstairs are in the classic Maine style with antique furnishings, airy curtains and family quilts. Guests will enjoy wide views of Pemaquid Harbor from the vantage point of the new deck. The rolling yard and fields around the property further add to the sense of privacy. With an easy walk to a working lobster dock and restaurant with the most beautiful view on the coast of Maine, and only a short drive to Pemaquid Beach, the famous Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, and historic Fort William Henry. This location makes it possible to take advantage of all the Pemaquid area attractions while avoiding any crowds!

My two brothers, sister and I inherited High Point and the Barn House from our parents in 2007. They maintained their homes magnificently. My siblings and I grew up in Connecticut and our parents bought High Point when we were teenagers...hoping for escape time from us, I'm sure! They retired full time to Maine in 1972 and designed and had the Barn House built years later. I live with my family in the mountains of Colorado. My three children and I, along with my brothers, sister and their kids, have spent every summer in Maine exploring the beaches, tidal rocks and pools, hiking islands, kayaking, canoeing rivers and learning to live without all the craziness and pressures of 'the real world.' Maine is how life should be!
My siblings and I are, understandably, very attached to High Point and the Barn House. Not only because this was our parents home but it has always represented uninterrupted family time. The Barn House is an open, bright, uniquely Maine, comfortable cottage surrounded by lawns, flowers, views and magical lighting. The memories are endless of croquet on the lawn in hysterical laughter, hours on the beaches with my parents and their grandchildren catching crabs, making sand sculptures, after dinner ice cream cones in New Harbor, day trips on the ferry to Monhegan Island to hike all day and build fairy houses in Cathedral Woods, and loud family lobster dinners at Pemaquid or Round Pond lobster docks. The Barn House is surrounded by summertime action of parades, historical events, art shows and galleries, antiques and an old-fashion movie theater. I could go on and on................
The Barn House is located in a part of Maine that has many attractions but never feels touristy! Pemaquid Beach has a long white beach and dunes and it is easy to find a quiet spot to read or nap! The area is physically so breathtakingly beautiful. Exploratory road trips or bike rides take you to surprising beauty around every corner. Walpole Barn hosts wine tasting at tables in their apple orchard and two libraries offer children's hours. The historic digs at Fort William Henry date back to before the French and Indian War and sometimes they offer to have volunteers join in and learn archaeological techniques! The Carpenters Boatshop is fascinating to visit and they also offer classes. There is something for every age and every interest nearby.
