About the property

5 Bedrooms - Sleeps 6

Whether visiting the seacoast for a weekend, a week or a month -- as friends, couples or family - our cozy antique farmhouse is an ideal place to enjoy short or long vacation stays.

The farmhouse is also available for long-term summer/winter rentals for couples or business executives relocating to the seacoast.

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.

While only a mile away from Kittery Outlets and major highways, the farmhouse offers the serenity of rural residential environment - nurtured by picturesque sunsets and rejuvenating energy.

Outlet Shopping, Beaches, Historic Sites: The farmhouse is 1 mile from Kittery Shopping Outlets, close by beaches, historic sites, breathtaking historic seacoast sites - and major highways to northern Massachusetts, Southern NH and Northern Maine.

Bring the Whole Family : The farmhouse is ideal for large families - or multi-family vacations or reunions. It's also ideal for short or long-term executive stays. With a large kitchen, five bedrooms, wrap around porch, professionally landscaped grounds, everyone can find their solace.

Gather around the large dining room table to share stories - or enjoy prepared meal. Sink into comfortable couches and chairs and let our bucolic views de-stress you as you relax and become a part of this antique dairy farm homestead which is a landmark of Kittery history.

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.

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!

Great location and owners

  • 5 of 5

We rented the farmhouse with friends to stay the weekend for a wedding we attended in Kittery. The farmhouse far exceeded my expectations. It was very cozy, clean, and well kept. It was spacious with plenty of cozy nooks to provide room for everyone. We had 4 cars and there was plenty of parking. The owners are beyond accommodating and are truly wonderful people. My only regret is that we weren't able to stay longer than just the weekend!

Great location and space

  • 4 of 5

Great location, quiet spot but easy driving into Kittery or up and down the coast, we especially enjoyed visiting York, Ogunquit, Portland and Portsmouth.

The farmhouse is very spacious, the bedrooms are a good size and the kitchen is well kitted out.

The kayaks were an added bonus, the owners were very helpful and my husband and kids enjoyed their time on the river.

I would mention that the stairs are very steep so not suitable for small children or elderly! my two (10 & 14) were fine and liked choosing which room to have, there are two large bedrooms downstairs and three upstairs.

I would definitely recommend this vacation spot.

Welcomed relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

If I travel again for more than a couple days, the stay at this farmhouse will make me think twice about booking a hotel. There was so much space for our family and my sisters that stayed here. The wrap around porch was great in the morning for coffee and in the evening for a night cap. A full dining table allowed us to eat together, play games and enjoy the company while having enough rooms to allow for our own relaxation time.

The owner is great! She was very flexible and available if we needed anything. The location is so close to all the shopping of Kittery and Portsmouth, NH but the road it sits on is quiet and you forget how close you are to the hustle and bustle.

There were plenty of linens, kitchen items and even a washer and dryer available in the house. And the grounds were beautiful as well!

The upstairs is great for kids to escape into their own area with a play room and couple of bedrooms along with a full bath.

I look forward to visiting this farmhouse again in the future!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of girls that work together and have taken an annual shopping trip for a few years now. This year we wanted to try Kittery and the Portsmouth area. It's not easy finding a place that can accommodate 7 people, but we are so glad we found this farmhouse! Very reasonable priced, clean, plenty of parking, plenty of sleeping and the grounds are beautiful! Shopping was minutes away by car. We ate supper at Roberts, it was excellent, the pumpkin martini was fabulous! I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family. We are all looking forward to coming back next year!

Great Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with a group of friends for a weekend and were very happy to find it. We had trouble finding a property that would be good for a group and available for a weekend but this is the perfect place if that is what you are looking for. The house had plenty of sleeping and was well equipped and maintained. The owner was friendly, accommodating and happy to give recommendations of things in the area. I would definitely consider returning and would recommend to others. It is very close to the outlets, there is a nice walking path to water where you could boat (not beach), good restaurant options nearby (we enjoyed Captain and Patty's on the water at Kittery Point) and within reasonable driving distance to the beach (about 15 minutes to York). Overall a lovely charming place.

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.
