5 Stars, all the way!

  • 5 of 5

FInn Farm has to be one of the best places we have ever stayed. The location of the Fram provides a beautiful scenic view of Cocktail Bay and the Saco River. One could spend their entire stay in the backyard of this house simply enjoying the view! Tom and Diane could not have been more accommodating. They provided us with plenty of recommendations and answered promptly any questions we had. We were even able to push off of their dock and into the Saco River for a paddle on a tandem kayak that was absolutely wonderful. We could not thank our hosts enough for providing us with the tools to have such a fabulous weekend. We cannot recommend this place enough and we also cannot wait to come back!

Finn Farm a wonderful place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family has had the good fortune of staying at Finn Farm for the last five summers. It is a comfortable and relaxing setting after a day at the beach. It is situated in such a manner that you feel like you are in the country with a spectacular view of the Saco river and close to a wonderful beach. We prefer staying here as opposed to closer to the beach as it is very private and quiet. Tom and Diane Madden are very welcoming and helpful hosts. We have also enjoyed the friendly town of Saco. We do not have any reservations in recommending Finn Farm.

A Picture of Old Time Maine

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful find and such a delight to come home to each evening!! The first day of arrival we spotted a flock of about 20 wild turkeys grazing across the meadow we also enjoyed the Red Fox and her kits. The view over the meadow to cocktail bay on the Saco River was a daily joy.

Tom and Diane, the owners, could not have been more accommodating. They helped with recommendations with things to do, restaurants, and shopping and share their excitement of living in Maine with us. We cannot wait to come back next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! We are so happy to be able to share the abundant natural beauty that surrounds us here on the Saco River. The ever changing tidal waterfront and the large variety of wildlife that we share this land with all contribute to the feeling of being miles away, all within a 5 minute drive to downtown. We love meeting people from all over the world and introducing them to the "hidden gem" of Southern Maine. Safe travels and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
