Farmhouse Charm, Close to MDI

Mead Meadow Farm is classic Downeast Maine. Just inland from the coast, you'll find quiet and charm, with all the amenities of home. While the experience is that of an inland farmstead, the beach is an easy walk, and views of Mount Desert Island and the surrounding Frenchman's Bay start just moments after leaving the driveway.  
 
On the beach, which is about a half mile downhill, you may see eagles perching in trees, locals digging for clams, and you can take in the views of Raccoon Cove and Mount Desert Island just across the cove. Just after sunset, you may see look across and see the line of headlights of the traffic winding its way down Cadillac Mountain. 
 
An easy drive to MDI and Bar Harbor, this private and quiet getaway provides all the comforts you'll want after a long day of sightseeing. A well-equipped kitchen and outdoor grill mean that you may want to cook many of your meals at your "home away from home," rather than braving the hordes vying for tables in Bar Harbor. 
 
In fact, it can be hard to leave: nostalgic seating outdoors provides winsome views of your surroundings that include a gorgeous wildflower field in season, and plentiful wildlife. On our recent visit, our wildlife sightings included whitetail deer (lots!), porcupines, raccoons, and squirrels. 
 
Nights are quiet and peaceful: on clear nights, we were amazed at the blanket of stars and planets above. This dark-sky haven provided an incredible place to view the heavens in all their glory. 
 
Inside, the house is furnished tastefully, with period antiques as well as modern touches. Beds are comfortable and cozy, while the living room has comfortable seating areas in view of the DVD player/TV and plentiful books and games for those occasional rain days. 
 
Not only is Mount Desert Island in easy reach, but so is coastal Maine: you'll be perfectly situated to head west to Gouldsboro, Winter Harbor, or Schoodic: more must-see areas of Downeast Maine that are less than an hour's drive. Or, head over to Blue Hill Peninsula and explore the artist colonies in Blue Hill, Brooklin, or Deer Isle.  
 
We are regular, longtime visitors to the region, and have found Mead Meadow Farm to be a charming place to relax, disconnect from the bustle of everyday life, and enjoy Downeast Maine and all it offers.

Rustic country home

This property is an older home but well kept. It is definitely on the rustic side, but we were prepared for this after reviewing the listing. The yard is amazing and the area is quiet and peaceful. The one constructive criticism I would make is that the property information we received in advance of arrival says that the property is unlocked and that there is a lockbox by the front door. The lockbox is actually not obvious and is somewhat hidden, and the property was not unlocked. After that glitch was worked out, we very much enjoyed our stay.
