Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
About Ray Stephens
My wife and I bought this farmhouse because we saw the potential it had and wanted to remodel it to to make it a space we would enjoy. It is a wonderful old house with lots of history. It took way too long to remodel...8 years. I found I just didn't have the time to put into it that I thought. It was a wonderful project and we enjoyed the entire process. As we remodeled it, we wanted to do it in a way that we'd be very happy and comfortable to live there ourselves. We've succeeded in doing that. The house has all new plumbing, heating, electrical, windows, roof, kitchen, 2 new bathrooms. The floors were sanded to bring out the original beauty of the wood.
Ray Stephens purchased this Farmhouse in 2002
Why Ray Stephens chose Lamoine
Since we live just down the road, we felt this property made sense to purchase. We knew the previous owner and wanted to continue to care and appreciate the house as he did. His family had owned it for 2 generations, and their family added the dustpan dormer on the front of the house to enlarge the upstairs bedroom. They loved the house and it has been a wonderful house to remodel.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Off the kitchen there is a nice shed or mud room, if the weather is inclement, it is a place to take off wet clothes or muddy shoes and boots. The farmhouse also has a unique white cast-iron farmhouse sink, large with cast-iron sideboards on either side of the sink. There are many nooks and crannies that are exciting and unusual for the kids to explore. It truly is one-of-a-kind.

This farmhouse works well for a family visit to Acadia, especially if you have pets. The house is well equipped and the beds are comfortable. Just note that the stairs to the bedroom with the twin beds are rustic and could be difficult for some folks to negotiate.
Yes, the stairways to the upstair’s bedrooms are original. One stairway has what is known as winder stairs. The stair steps taper as it winds toward the bottom of the stairway. There is a second stairway available that has regular steps. However, that stairway is at the other end of the house and goes through another bedroom. Some think the winder stairs are kind of fun to traverse.
Beautiful, spacious home.
Our family of five and two dogs loved staying in this home. There was plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen was well stocked w/ everything we needed for nightly lobster boils and all our other meals. The house gets a lovely breeze, is very clean and beautifully decorated. My kids loved exploring all the nooks. Communication with Ray was effortless, he was very helpful steering us around the area. We enjoyed stargazing each night around the fire pit. Short drive to stores, ice cream, Acadia and Lamoine beach. We would love to come for a visit again. Thank you so much Ray!
Perfect farmhouse for our perfect vacation!
We loved staying here at the farmhouse! Perfect location to get to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The farmhouse was perfect for our family, in total we had 5 adults and 3 children and there was plenty of space in the house. Ray and his wife are such nice people, they made us feel very comfortable. Would definitely recommend this quaint farmhouse for a perfect summer Maine vacation.
The farmhouse in Lamoine was everything as advertised. My sister and husband met us there from Michigan, we drove up from Boston. We both had our dogs. Everyone had a great time! Very close to Bar Harbor and Acadia . The house was even bigger then expected. Ray was always available ( we didn’t have gas in the grill, called Ray, brought us a new tank in 10 min. ) also gave good recommendations ! Would definitely stay again!
Comment on homeaway fees
I think the homeaway fees charged are high compared to the value offered.
I have control of the price per day or week of the rental, but not the Homeaway fees charged beyond that. However, there is a 9% State of Maine lodging tax which is included in the Homeaway fee.
