Visitors to Smithereen farm love to stay at our lovely guest house up the road. This little house sits on the West Bank of the Pennamaquan river, in the heart of the little village of Pembroke, site of a future river trail and artist yurts, also a great place for swimming in the afternoons. This house was built in the 1972 and has all the amenities including:
5 BEDROOMS and a ‘kids suite’, 1 full bathroom, full kitchen and living room, full basement with freezer, washer and dryer, fridge, electric oven, gas stovetop, oil heat and plenty of parking. There is also a lovely trail up into the 100 acres of mostly pine escarpment that flanks the river.
Elver gets great light and is nice and quiet, you will hear eagles calling to each other up and down the river, its a flyway.
Rented by the week or by the month: $600/ $2000, please use airbnb to book.
Adjacent to Elver is “Fox House”, Fox is built in the 1860’s and is not yet winterized: great airy summer bedrooms and electrical power, sitting room with piano etc, but no kitchen or plumbing of any kind. This is a great spillover housing option for bigger events/ parties. Fox has 4 bedrooms upstairs, 2 sitting rooms downstairs.
Rooms in Fox are more of a ‘artist flop house’: $20/ night or $350/ month suggested.
Please be in touch with inquiries, much is afoot this year! Contact our hospitality manager via email hospitality(at)smithereenfarm.com or call the farm house 207 726 4442 with any questions you may have.
We believe in sharing this beautiful land with visitors who can come and learn with us about agroecology and participate in the value-added product creation and enterprises we are engaged with—we also welcome those who come to teach us! These activities are called ‘Agrotourism’ and are part of our mission and our goal of recruiting more young farmers to this region.
Kayaking, hiking, biking, small boating adventures, clambakes, bird watching, foraging fruit and wild foods, swimming in lakes, endless beach walks with nary a traffic light are all activities you’ll enjoy during your stay here. More than a quarter of Washington County is under some kind of conservation protection, with the Cutler Coast, Moosehorn Wildlife Refuge, Downeast Salmon Federation, Downeast Coastal Conservancy, Maine Coast Heritage Trust, Grand Lakes Stream Trust, Nature Conservancy, Maine Islands Land Trust … plenty! of camping, and exploring, and plenty of terns, eagles, gannets, shearlings, plovers, puffins, petrals, eiders, shearwaters, loons, herons, black ducks. You can watch them race up and down the surf, fluttering up in great clusters to feed, and out on the water amongst the whales, dolphins and massive schools of herring and mackerel.
When you come please drive up the driveway carefully, as there are small animals.
