Nestled in Maine's oldest town of Kittery, the farmhouse is part of a larger renovated dairy farm compound that offers serenity and bucolic views from every room - and a wrap around porch ideal for sun-set dinners and drinks.

Set by a conservation duck pond, with access to Spruce Creek for kayaking, our professionally landscaped sprawling four acre grounds offer rolling hills for walks, meditation, and a front-seat view of nature's magical beauty all year round.

About Jackie Abramian

Our family moved from Massachusetts to Kittery, ME in 2003 when we fell in love with the farm compound. Our vacation renters fully enjoy their time at our property - and most return on annual basis.

We look forward to welcoming you to our property - and share the beauty of the seasons with you and your family.

Jackie Abramian purchased this house in 2003

Why Jackie Abramian chose Kittery

Our dairy farm compound - which includes the Farmhouse - offers a unique history of American farmland - established in 1890 as the Moulton Family farm and operated as a dairy farm until 1950's.

The sprawling acres where once cows grazed now welcome guests to relax and enjoy nature's changing scenes.

What makes this house unique

The house is a year-round rental - ideal for summer and winter vacationers and executives in need of short and long-term stays. We offer kayaks for guests who want to enjoy Spruce Creek's beautiful islands and get a front seat view of unique homes that line the edges of the Creek.

Also for groups - we offer Victorian Tea-Time events in our barn - for $30/pp. Reservations must be made in advance.

Whether you are visiting Maine for great Outlet shopping at Kittery Outlets, or wanting to take time off from your busy lifestyle -- our farmhouse welcomes guests year-round to a fully renovated turn of the century, cozy antique space, once part of a working dairy farm in Kittery.

Each window from the farmhouse offers bucolic views of our sprawling four acres of professionally landscaped grounds -- and the surrounding natural beauty. Enjoy the breathtaking sunsets - or get a front seat view of nature at its best in abutting conservation duck pond - stroll down to Spruce Creek on Land Trust walking trails ideal for nature lovers -- or walk to Spruce Creek right on the property and take a relaxing kayak ride down Spruce Creek to ride by surrounding homes.

We encourage you to discover Kittery beyond the outlets -- and explore the Rt. 1 Gourmet Mile where you can stop at organic markets, pasta shops, bakeries, and fish and meat markets. Then stroll into downtown Kittery foreside area to enjoy numerous arts organizations - antique shops, gift shops of locally made arts and numerous restaurants offering Thai, Mexican, Indian, and other cuisine. Kittery is the hidden gem of the southern Maine seacoast - with beautiful beaches, gourmet restaurants, antique shops, art galleries and gift shops to satisfy everyone's tastes and needs.

We are also conveniently located 1 hour from Boston and 5 miles from historic Portsmouth, NH. - and only a mile away from major highways, and Kittery Outlets.

Three local beaches are available for our guests - as are local historic and maritime sites that are picturesque no matter what time of the year you visit us.

Wonderful old farmhouse with tons of character

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week-long stay at this lovely old farmhouse. My kids LOVED all the rooms and even the basement and they had lots of fun exploring. The kids nook was a huge selling point for them too. We loved imagining what life was like when the house was built and how things have changed. My husband was crazy for the kayaks and was out kayaking nearly every day, and he got our 6-year-old to kayak too. One word of caution, as others have mentioned - the stairs are very steep. Our 2-year-old needed active supervision on them.

Thank you also for taking such good care of the house and leaving it so very clean. Enjoy the rest of your summer and we look forward to hosting your family again in the near future.

wonderful location, beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend in Kittery this August with our 3 grown children. We are now fans of southern Maine! There is so much to do and some beautiful coastline to enjoy. The house was great, plenty of room, big kitchen and nice porch. We enjoyed the kayaks provided. Outlet shopping was close, restaurants were plentiful and good!

We explored Portsmouth NH, York and Ogunquit Beaches..... need to go back and finish exploring.

Hosts were available and very friendly

Thanks Jackie!

Our only concern was with the wifi who was on and off all through our stay wich is inconvenient

Owner's Response: Thank you for your note. Glad you enjoyed your stay. The wi-fi connectivity is dependent on the number of devices connected, using the correct wi-fi link, as well as the local Comcast speed. It seemed that when we dropped by to fix the problem, everyone was already connected. Our guests continue to enjoy the wi-fi connectivity during their stay. Wishing you a happy rest of summer. Jackie

A Home Away From Home

  • 3 of 5

The house nicely accommodated our group of six. We love how we felt at home. The kitchen is huge. Our group enjoyed the close proximity to shops and outlets. Kayaking was a big hit! The owners/hosts were extremely gracious. We encountered some problems, but they did their best to make things right. Be advised that the steps to the upstairs are very steep. Also, two of the mattresses upstairs are futon type mattresses. Overall, we had a good experience.

Beautiful Property, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved staying at this well maintained property. It has an amazing location near the Kittery outlets and is also just 5-10 minutes to York's famous Long Sands/Short Sands beaches. If you enjoy kayaking, the owners also have three kayaks that you can take out and explore the neighboring waterways. Our thanks to Jackie and her family for their gracious hospitality!
