Description

37 acres of organic salt water farm on deep water. Tapley Farm has been a major seaport and ship wharf and now is a moment in time where the space, the historic beauty, the land, sea, wildlife, fauna, and skies are as they were 180 years ago when the family first settled in Brooksville. The cabin, part of this working farm was briefly used to teach art during the summer and then was remodeled into a charming and comfortable cabin. Large rooms surrounded by farmland reach towards the beaches, the same used for the Clipper ships that sailed from here. Unique as it a part of the legacy of the Tapley Sea Captains and their amazing wives who ran the farms while their husbands sailed the world. Where the sea meets the farm, Tapley Farm's is the finest lodging in quality and history., 1hr, , Blue Hill, Stonington, Castine,Penobscot, Deer Isle. Ivengar Yoga 4 mins. Spectacular Salt Water Farm on the banks of the Bagaduce. Spacious Cabin, rustic with all the amenities you need. Two bedrooms, 1 King, 1 queen, 1 1/2 baths and washer dryer There is nothing as relaxing as a rustic space on an organic farm surrounded by water The cabin, as cozy as it is, has all the amenities you need. Great kitchen, large living room, and outstanding screened porch. Reviews we have received tell the whole story, enjoy! As Liane said in 2016 The cabin is cozy and well-equipped. While it is rustic, a stove, quilted beds, and a fake fire place made September Maine nights very comfortable. The screened porch overlooking farm land is a lovely feature, and the cabin is a very short walk away from a picturesque, secluded, shell-laden beach. While we had great weather to be outdoors during our entire visit, an interesting cabin library of books and dvds is another plus. Carol and husband Dick were very helpful in providing suggestions of local restaurants for our evening arrival, swimming locations, and thrift shops for college student furniture. They had also left wine, cheese, and crackers for our arrival. We enjoyed a wide-ranging chat with them on their front lawn and meeting their little dogs. As Troy said "A magical coastal retreat in the heart of Down East Maine. Our family (5) had a wonderful time at Dick and Carol's saltwater farm. The house is rustic and charming, the yard is big and beautiful, the dogs are friendly, the geese are loud, the chickens wake up early, the sun seems to linger forever, the sea appears at the end of the old dirt path and the beach house seems to float along the seashore. If you are considering a trip to Maine and really want to experience Down East Maine, book this lovely cottage. Acadia, Blue Hill and Stonington are close by. As are several great food spots -- the apple tree in the front yard, the bakery down the street, Millbrook Company, Bagaduce Lunch, The Fish Net. The beach is typical Maine, but the beach house is something special -- nothing fancy, but a wonderful patch of green grass along the blue sea. The house is rustic, but in the best possible way. Everything you need is here, including several large lobster pots, an endless supply of great movies on VHS and a quiet back porch. Finally, Carol and Dick are wonderful hosts. Warm, welcoming, truly happy to have guests at their house. Book it, enjoy it, don't tell anyone (else). Aunt Mary's Cabin sleeps 4 people and is surrounded by water and 37 pastoral acres. Charming and rustic cabin offers comfortable king and queen bedrooms, a full eat-in kitchen, living, dining, washer/dryer and screened porch. Surrounded by water, quiet country roads and untouched, the farm is 'Life as life should be'. And David said in September 2015 Wow! What an amazing get away. Carol and her husband are incredible hosts. The cabin on the organic farm was even better than described. My wife and 6 month old son stayed for 6 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The cabin was the perfect mix of rustic charm with modern amenities including a great collection of movies and games for the rainy day. Carol helped us plot our adventures from swimming in a gorgeous pond while spotting bald eagles, hiking enumerable trails, to visiting local farms and harbors to source our locally grown meals. Lobster, chicken, lamb, greens, veggies, cheese, milk and more. With Tinder Hearth bakery just up the road, we ate until we burst! The Brooksville/Blue Hill/Deer Isle area is a very special place. Staying at Carols farm made it all the more special. We can't wait to come back! Thank you! The farm was farmed by our Grandfather and the road led to ships awaiting repair. All the land was used for farming and no chemicals were ever used here. The nights are full of stars and fireflies and days of Valerian and roses blowing in the breezes. Our neighborhood is full of homesteaders who raise vegetables, make cheese or bake bread. Our local market has the best wines, chosen by Jonathan, the Chief at Buck's and the market there has specialty foods and supplies for locals and the yachtsmen who frequent Brooksville in the summer. Kneisal Hall in Blue Hill has the best music available anywhere and students from the best schools come to play for us all summer. The Stonington Opera has fine film, performance and jazz and the village is full of art, restaurants and a great little clothing store. Nearby Deer Isle has wonderful galleries, restaurants and Haystack where artists meet and teach. Blue Hill and all the surrounding towns have farmer's markets, not unlike Provence. You can eat organic, top quality food every day and enjoy our local art as well. The various Yacht Clubs have events and races all summer and our guests are able to use our pond access at Walker's to swim, a new beach with outstanding water and loons. Kayaking and canoeing are done here and you can lease a boat in blue hill for your visit. Lobsters are readily available and you can get them precooked or cook them yourself. Our guests love the feel of a time gone by as we have no urban sprawl or strip centers, we have open space and a feeling of peace. Climb Blue Hill, hike through Holbrook Island Sanctuary, visit the Nearing Center and learn about farming and homesteading or go to the Wooden Boat School and build a boat. Elliot Coleman and Barbara Damrosche are renowned for gardening and amazing techniques to encourage longer seasons. Their farm is a few miles away and the flowers and vegetables are the finest anywhere. Across the water is Castine a great old town with my favorite bar, 'The Penagoet', with Jack your host, and his amazing collection of photographs.The Maine Maritime is there and the ship is often at dock and the students race their sailing ensigns. Cruise ships and sailboats, yachts and lobster boats fill the water and Castine is a great place to get ice cream, throw a dollar on Dennet's ceiling and have a beer. The homes there are from the days of great sailing ships, captain's and their families. Our family used to run the steamer from the wharf to Castine and would attend the one room school house there. We have pictures of the water frozen, completely from Brooksville to Castine. Summertime is loaded with daily activities and the fall is so beautiful with the maples and orchards glowing. Dogs allowed with owners approval. Come to our farm and enjoy the beauty of nature, get reacquainted with silence and cool air and just relax in the summer sun. For larger groups, The perfect place for relaxing reunions, catching up with old friends, and beautiful country weddings.Please check out our other listing on VRBO.#41192 if you need more space.
