Come away from it all....catch your breath.
Six miles from the bustle of Boothbay Harbor is a peaceful waterfront retreat, set among rolling fields, meandering stone walls and richly colored perennial gardens........imagine a place that evokes your fondest memories....and brings your vacation dreams to bold colorful life....
The estate consists of four New England-style buildings: the main Farmhouse and historic, 200 year-old Homer Jones barn; a centrally-located garden shed, surrounded by gardens; a charming, renovated 1800s Cape and the Gallery Barn.
The Antique Cape combines new convenience with its historical heritage, with an exterior wrap-around porch and dormers, and a private back deck with great views of the shady woodland, home of the reclusive Lady Slipper, the apple orchard and the Gallery Barn. Inside, the first floor holds a comfortable, fully-equipped kitchen, dining room and living Room, all set off with the original pumpkin pine flooring, and furnished with antiques. There is also a first floor bedroom, the Garnet which has a Full-sized bed, and private bath. The Garnet and living rooms face the courtyard, the Farmhouse and the river. A cozy computer nook at the top of the stairs also faces the courtyard and is one of the best spots to pick up the WiFli.
On the second floor are four additional bedrooms with three private baths. The Ruby Peridot suite, a Queen bed in the Ruby room, with a privacy-shaded French door leading into the Peridot, twin room, share the Ruby Peridot bath.
The Turquoise, with a Full oak sleigh-bed, facing across the Back River Road to nine acres of woodlands, also with private bath.
And the third, the Butterscotch Amber bedroom, with two twin beds, its own sitting room and with the unique bath with both clawfoot tub and shower.
Wake to birdsong in the apple trees and early morning fog on the Back River....then make yourself delicious coffee and a hearty, healthy breakfast in the fully-equipped kitchen in the recently renovated 1800s Cape.
Wander 15 acres of gardens and woodland trails....borrow a sit-on-top kayak or an inflatable boat to paddle with local seals....enjoy games, ride bikes, meet our friendly bald eagles and other critters.....watch the Maine painted turtles or listen to frogs on the freshwater pond......wander the park-like grounds.....take a cool dip or a sail on the river....
Refreshed, venture out into the Boothbay region to join a tour boat to see whales or puffins, or to go lobstering, shop, view our many art galleries, try some local restaurants and generally have a memorable visit. The Coastal Maine Botanical Garden is only 4 miles away! So is the world-class Boothbay Harbor Country Club golf course! Or try hiking at any of the 13 preserves within 10 miles of this home.
At the end of the day, imagine coming ‘home’ to a snack and drink on the wrap-around porch....a good book in the hammock.....a sunset through the windows....and a long, delicious sleep in one of your five lovely bedrooms with four private baths, colorful bedding, paddle fans, cable TV, WiFli.
Or come home to a peaceful evening in one of your five elegant bedrooms with private bath, colorful bedding, paddle fans, cable TV, WiFli....in the Farmhouse across the courtyard.
When the buildings are not rented to vacation rental guests, they are offered in the B&B style...in either case, it's the perfect destination for a personal retreat, family or school reunion, wedding or other gathering event. See more by googling Bold Colorful Life Estate and Retreat Center.
Renewed again, live your bold and colorful life!
