Why Wendy & Ken Schweikert chose Blue Hill
Sunflower Farm is a gorgeous property bordered by a fresh water stream flowing into the Salt Pond, a 3-mile long inlet from the ocean. Sited on a shallow tidal cove framed by Carleton Island, home to a nesting pair of bald eagles, osprey, blue herons, ducks and seals, it is a Maine paradise. Ancient Abenaki tribes once used this land as their summer camping grounds.
What makes this Apartment unique
You'll appreciate use of this exclusive, private estate and the quiet beauty of natural surroundings. Sunflower Farm has 4 acres to explore, filled with gardens, squirrels, birds, and several separate outdoor seating areas featuring comfortable Adirondack chairs in sun or shade. Enjoy a good book or breathe in the fresh air and beautiful water views. You may use our kayaks (2 singles or a double) to explore the Salt Pond. Use our private pool to swim and sunbathe or get refreshed in the bubbling stream.

A Little Bit of Heaven
Spending several days at The Carriage House At Sunflower Farms was a little bit of heaven. The Carriage House is welcoming and comfortable, fully equipped, and the setting makes for the perfect peaceful and calm retreat. My hosts were just as charming and no detail is spared; their attention to the fine points is evident at The Carriage House as well as throughout their lovely property and they were full of helpful information and ideas. Due to the time I the year I stayed (and an unexpected cold spell), I was not able to participate in any water activities, but what a delightful place when the weather is right.
My stay (this time) was all too short--I hope to return soon!
Great position, wonderful stay
We loved our 4 days here. The Carriage House has been a very comfortable stay. We travel a lot and we found that this place had all the things that we needed and appreciated whilst travelling.
It has a great kitchen with all the things you need to self cater, it has a washing machine and dryer, a VERY comforatable king size bed so you can get a good nights sleep and wonderful,water views. What more could you want.
The property is well positioned to explore the region and has a grocery store and a few restaurants nearby.
We really enjoyed our stay here......just wish all our accommodation on our travels was up to the same standard.
Wonderfull place. We love it.
Is a very nice house. You will find everything to make your stay perfect. The location is incredible. We spent one week, and was a glorious time!!! Thank you!!!
Everything was just as we had hoped and more. The suite had everything we could possibly need and was very clean and well appointed. The owners were also very friendly and helpful with lots of ideas for excursions to investigate. Highly recommended for future travel.
