About the property

Historical Home With Garage Apt. And Barn

Just steps away from the beach, our home is perfect for visiting during spring ,summer or enjoying the fall leaves. Take a three minute walk down the street to enjoy the calm waters of ferry beach, one of the most private beaches in the world, where you can swim, sun and clam. The larger scarborough beach, black point inn and the scenic cliff walk is just short walk away. Pick up lobsters from our local lobsterman who lives only three houses down the road!

The property is also completely winterized or those sometime chilly nights in the spring and fall.

We are two hours from boston. Portland is 15 minutes away offering an airport and some of the best cuisine in new england. Shop ‘til you drop not only in portland, but freeport (home of ll bean) and kennebunkport which are within an hours drive

The entire house, studio apartment and barn were completely renovated in 2012, when our family purchased it from the original owners. Built in 1910, the four square colonial house has unique characteristics including hardwood floors, new stainless steel appliances, and fireplace. The house sleeps 8-9 guests including 3 bathrooms the separate garage apartment which can sleep up to 4 guests.

• in total, the main house has 4 bedrooms and 2 baths on the second floor as well as a tv room on the first floor with an additional private bath.

• the lawn between the barn and the house provides great possibilities for playing bocce ball, croquet or roasting marshmallows in the fire pit at night.

• there is also the option to rent only the house (without the studio apartment).

Amenities include high speed internet and cable tv. The home and studio are also fully furnished with dishes, linens, and all cooking supplies, a new full size washer and dryer as well as an outdoor shower with hot water.

About Pam Stone

We are originally from Texas, but have made our way to New England and love it. Our other home is in Rhode Island. I renovate old homes and this one was such a challenge I had to take it on! We filled 37 dumpters with 'stuff' and re-created a New England jem.

Pam Stone purchased this house in 2012

Why Pam Stone chose Southern Coast of Maine

After visiting The Blackpoint Inn in Prouts I was hooked. So peaceful, with two of the most amazing beaches anywhere. It only takes me a couple hours to get here from my home. There is a spectacular cliff walk and you can ride your bike all around. You feel as if you are worlds away from any hussle and bussle, yet unbelievable food, antiques and shopping are only minutes away. I love to eat and antique!

What makes this house unique

The property has many special featues, my favorite is the barn. You are unable to sleep there but can slide open the barn doors and dine, feeling like you stepped back into history. Sit on the front porch and enjoy your morning coffee or play horseshoes on the expansive lawn.

A true gem

  • 5 of 5

Pam's home is an incredible place for a family vacation on the shores of Maine. A comfortable home, built for relaxation. Just steps from the ocean. Friendly neighbors, including a very conveniently located Lobstah fisherman doors away. If you are looking for the perfect place to kick back and enjoy the summer, this is it!

Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our time at Ferry Rd. It was truly a perfect place to spend time with the people that matter.

The house and property are beautiful. We have rented other homes and none have ever felt like home. Everything inside is so tastefully done and comfortable. The house had room for our large family to be together and spaces to be by yourself. The garage, barn and yard are a bonus! We enjoyed eating in the barn, lounging on the chairs and just hanging out. Some of our group had work to do and it was great having wifi. I wish Pam could come to my home and tweak things there.

The area is incredible. I grew up across the water in Pine Point so I knew what this part of Maine has to offer. Honestly though, I had no idea just how peaceful and pleasant a week on Prouts Neck would be. Beautiful beaches, lots of biking, golf, paddle boarding really plenty of things to do or spots to sit and do nothing.

We all felt like we had stepped back in time in the very best of ways. We would certainly recommend this property. Actually before we even left we were figuring out when we could all get back and to stay longer. One week is a tease.

Magnifique propriété !

  • 5 of 5

Propriété spacieuse et confortable, décorée avec beaucoup de goût et située à proximité de belles plages familiales. Idéal avec de jeunes enfants. Séjour très agréable grâce aux nombreuses commodités offertes. Mémorables soupers au homard dans la grange où nous avons pu fêter, en famille, le 68e anniversaire de notre aînée. Très plaisant. Wonderful!

The perfect "Camp Noni" for us!

  • 5 of 5

This property is fabulous -- a true memory maker for anyone who stays!

The house has an "old soul", wrapping itself around you as soon as you step in. It has been brought back to life by the owner, who has both architectural AND design vision; exquisitely, but oh so comfortably decorated with a Pottery Barn feel throughout.

We used and enjoyed every inch of the property, from the house with covered porch on rainy days and for breakfast tea parties that my 3 granddaughters put on, to the barn for late evening family dinners and dart competitions between my 2 grandsons. The yard offered plenty of shade to relax with a book and an oversized hammock enjoyed by all. I stayed in the apartment above the garage – very comfortable and a very comfortable, convertible “guest sofa / bed” for 1st the 3 granddaughters, then the 2 grandsons, and so on throughout our stay – the apartment overall, made for a perfect “Noni space”!

Both beaches were a very easy walk, even with my "cherub troupe" of five; each beach offering a different experience for the children – the wonderful waves on the Atlantic side and a tidal river and all that that teaches and has to offer on the Ferry Beach side. The 3 year old loved using her scooter back and forth to both : )

I hope we have found our “Camp Noni” for years to come.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amazing time here! Being from New York, it was great to be away from the city and truly relax- but still have close access to Portland. The beach was literally just down the street and was a great place for the kids to play and the parents to hang out and watch the sunset. One thing I loved about this property was the outdoor space - a huge yard, firepit and beautiful turn of the century barn.

The house was also very charming, clean and all of the beds were super comfortable. The studio apartment above the garage was a great place for my younger sister and her boyfriend to be away from the house and have their own private space.

I was also thrilled about the customer service. Being a foodie, I asked Pam if she knew any good restaurants and she gave me a list of the best restaurants in the area- and let me tell you they were amazing (up to NYC standards!)

I hope to come back next year!
