Set on 100 acres in Blue Hill Maine, Kingdom Road Farm is a working farm with sheep, chickens and hay harvesting during the warmer months. The farm has a mix of ponds, streams, pasture, hay fields, ample forest and an historic cemetery. We offer overnight lodging with accomodations for up to 8 guests in our beautifully restored farmhouse.
Kingdom Road Farm abuts hundreds of acres of protected lands (Blue Hill Heritage Trust) with walking trails and easy parking. The area is a paradise for birders and nature enthusiasts. We are located just 10 minutes away from both the coastal village of Blue Hill and the well known Bagaduce Lunch eatery on the shore of the tidal Bagaduce River and a short hour from Acadia National Park.
There is much to do, so load up your gear, canoes and kayaks - and enjoy!
Originally built around the circa 1800 fireplace and bread oven, this true farmhouse provides all-around comfort for our guests. We provide comfortable overnight accomodations and a full kitchen facility for our guests to prepare their own meals. The house has two floors, each with 2 bedrooms: one with twin beds and the other with a queen bed. All four bedrooms feature 10-inch cooling memory foam mattresses and private bathrooms. There is also a common area on each level, allowing those that are traveling together to have their own floor. A separate wing contains a full kitchen and dining area which can also serve as a great space for small meetings, seminars, etc.
The farmhouse is fully insulated and offers an individually controlled heating and cooling system in each bedroom for year-round comfort. There is an old, well-tuned piano in the downstairs common area....for musical noodling or even a family sing-along.
The interior of the building has been beautifully finished to pay homage to the historic nature of the house. Reclaimed barn boards from renovated outbuildings on the premises grace the farmhouse's walls as wainscoting, chair rails and trim boards. The original posts and beams have been left exposed throughout the house and are augmented by new timber framing in the main entryway and common area downstairs. Situated on a hill, the house's southerly views overlook two ponds, pasture, hay fields and a two hundred year old cemetery.
Kingdom Road Farm is located at 720 Kingdom Road Blue Hill, Maine 04614. The Kingdom Road is a "less traveled" but well maintained gravel road between Route 175 in Penobscot and Hinckley Ridge Road in Blue Hill. To reach the farm from Blue Hill village, drive 3 miles through the Kingdom Forest and you will see the farmhouse up on the hill to your left. To reach the farm from Sedgwick, Brooksville, or Penobscot, head up the Kingdom Road by the old church on Southern Bay Road (Rte. 175) 1 mile through the blueberry barrens. The house will be on your right, immediately after a sharp right turn through a wooded patch.
Kingdom Road Farm does not allow pets (there are a few pet boarders in the area). This is a working farm with animals and we are unable to have unpleasant or dangerous mishaps with either our farm stock or your pets!
We do not offer laundry service; however, clean towels and everyday bath supplies are always available for your use.
The fireplace is closed off for guest use for obvious safety reasons as there is no access to fire control in our remote location.
