The House at Blue Skye Farm      
       
Check Availability       
       

The age of this historic house is apparent in the original wall stencils in the entrance hall and stairway by Moses Eaton, whose stencils are now owned by The Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities, and in reminders of another age like the bread oven in the fireplace and the Indian Shutters.

There are four Common Rooms at Blue Skye.

The Sitting Room, with its large windows with beautiful views over extensive gardens to the south and west, catches the sun all day, and in the evening, glows from the light of the fireplace. There are plenty of games and an extensive library of books and music to draw on for entertainment.

The Dining Room. We serve a traditional and healthy breakfast, stylistically in tune with the simplicity of the house. Sugary carbs and exotic concoctions (along with ruffles, knickknacks and Victorian doodads) are not our way.

Guests can choose a light breakfast from the fruits, homemade cereals, breads, yogurt and juices or follow up with the daily ‘special’, hot from the stove, one day savory (perhaps a frittata), and the next day sweet (maybe French toast with jam) for a more substantial start to the day. Where possible, our kitchen uses organic products. Our eggs, fruit and dairy as well as bread, when not home baked, are locally sourced. In the evening the Dining Room can become the setting for games and conversation or an anniversary dinner party in front of the fire and the old piano, lovingly transported across the Atlantic from the owners' home in England, invites you to play.

Guests are invited to use the large country Kitchen to prepare their evening meals. The Kitchen table has hosted quite a few lobster dinners and midnight snacks and is, as in most homes, the heart of the house where people instinctively gather together.

Overlooking the south lawn with its variety of old fruit trees and perennial borders, the Sunroom is the perfect spot for an early bird cup of tea, private breakfast, late afternoon cocktails, or firefly watching on a hot summer evening. Screened in wall to wall windows allow you to sit ‘outside’ in perfect comfort. It's also the place where, between check out and check in, our bed linens are hung to dry, so that each guest falls to sleep wrapped in the fragrance of a beautiful Maine day.
