Fox Fields Farm is located in Bar Harbor, Maine, on the western side of Mount Desert Island. With waterfront property and seventy acres of untouched land, it's perfect for both weddings and vacation rentals!

The seven-bedroom, four-bathroom farm house can easily sleep sixteen people and includes a finished basement, a large-screen TV, an unbeatable westward-facing ocean view (a remarkable sunset in Maine), a computer and Wi-Fi Internet service. The farm is encircled by horse trails and foot trails, and Fox Fields Farm has been the host of many weddings, anniversaries, and other wonderful family occasions. Come create some memories!

Nearby airports include BHB (10 min.) and BGR (1 hour), and the drive is 5 from of Boston on the 95. It is well worth the trip, especially if you’ve never experienced Bar Harbor and the beautiful Acadia National Park, one of the most visited national parks east of the Mississippi River. There are endless hiking trails and mountain biking carriage roads on the island. Alternatively, you can spend time sea kayaking, whale watching or playing some of the most enjoyable and historic ocean-front golf courses on the East Coast.

About Lindy Stretch

I have been coming to Mt desert island since I was a little kid. Even through all these years, this place is continuing to surprise me with something new all the time. Twenty five years ago we built a house here and began living here full time twelve years ago. It's hard to describe the experience but you will really love being here on this farm and so will you kids and grandchildren We have 12 years of happy multi generational families that have had a wonderful experience here. All sorts of little boats, plenty of life jackets (required) warm water to swim in (unusual in Maine) Big lawn for games cook outs weddings celebrationsof all kinds.

Lindy Stretch purchased this house in 1988

Why Lindy Stretch chose Bar Harbor

Great place for families, warm water for swimming, large lawn, fire pit, canoe and kayak. 12 min to town and 15 min to Acadia

Amazing views and perfect for a relaxing large family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented the main home on Fox Fields Farm for a week in July and all 15 of us loved it! Driving up to the home the view is so beautiful we never got tired of it. When you come over the hill you see the grassy lawn, beautiful flowers, horses grazing and an ocean view that is spectacular during the day or at sunset. The home was spacious and everybody had plenty of room. Bedrooms and bathrooms are a good size and we never ran out of hot water even with multiple showers going on at the same time. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything we needed (you provide your own food). The hosts also supply towels, beach towels, sheets, blankets, paper products, garbage bags. etc. We didn't have to worry about packing anything extra. I emailed the host several times before we left and she always answered me right away. The house is close to everything we did on our trip - Acadia, restaurants, Bar Harbor, Bass Harbor, Southwest Harbor. Plenty to do but it was also perfect just to sit by the water all day and enjoy the view. The water was warm enough to swim and canoe and we also saw the bald eagle that lives there multiple times. The kids LOVED feeding the horses and playing with the two friendly dogs that live on the property. We really have nothing but positive things to say about our stay!
