The Barn Loft apartment is a recently renovated 3 BR apartment, perfect for vacationers, retreats, reunions, or wedding parties. Access to outdoor seating and garden. Close to charming Damariscotta, beaches, historic sites, galleries, shopping, & restaurants.
We are less than a mile from downtown Damariscotta, with its charming harbor, shops, awesome theater, and even more awesome bookstore. Lots of wonderful restaurants around, and we have written a Guest Book that highlights some of our favorite spots. We offer our guests the use of a beach umbrella and two beach chairs, a bathroom with hairblower and washer/dryer, and a fully equipped kitchen. There is a portable full-length mirror, especially for those prepping for a special occasion! We've created this space with writers and artists in mind, and know you'll find the Barn Loft is a quiet comfortable space to do great work or to simply relax and enjoy our beautiful part of Maine.
We have outdoor seating on the open deck (wrought iron chairs and coffee table), and a picnic table and umbrella, that guests are welcome to use. Amy has a large flower garden and vegetable garden, and welcomes visitors -- please stay on the paths, and if you want some veggies or some flowers, just ask! The side yard, the screened porch, and our home, are our private space and we appreciate your respecting those boundaries.
Interaction with guests
Yes, we will be around to answer questions and offer tips if you like! We're eager to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Best to reach out to Amy first, as Will is working most of the time in his studio and gallery.
Other things to note
The TV offers Netflix, and there is a dvd player only. Please note that cable is not provided. If you are a sports fan and there's a big game you cannot miss, there is a local sports bar (great chicken wings!) right near us.
Wifi is free!
We have two dogs on the property -- both very friendly, and we never allow them up in the Barn Loft. They are occasionally out in the yard, but we will make every effort to keep them separate from you, if you have any concerns. MacKenzie is a senior female yellow lab and very sweet. Gordon is a young brown mutt, very enthusiastic and cheery.
We are in a quiet neighborhood and appreciate guests respecting that especially in the early morning and late evenings. Will operates his art studio and gallery on the first floor of the barn. Art is a quiet business (!), and we assure you, you won't be disturbed. Please NOTE: There is no smoking in the Barn Loft, and if you smoke outside on the property we request that you dispose of the butts properly. No pets allowed. We, the hosts, have two dogs in our own home and they are occasionally out in the yard, but they have NO ACCESS to the Barn Loft Apartment. The Apartment is totally pet-free. If you are uncomfortable around dogs, please let us know. We will keep the dogs completely separate from you during your stay.
Will and Amy Kefauver have just opened the Barn Loft Apartment over Will's Art Studio and Gallery. Will is an oil painter, and has a gallery filled with his beautiful work and the work of guest artists. He occasionally has students in his studio, and hosts art openings and events in the gallery. These are always completed by 7, and art is a quiet business! In addition to the fully furnished and stocked apartment, we offer a beach umbrella and two chairs for our guests use while they're with us! We love midcoast Maine, with its spectacular scenery, restaurants, shopping, and galleries. We are quiet, cheerful, art and editorial types, and we just know you will love this area as much as we do! We look forward to meeting you.
(*Please note: We added the 9% Maine Lodging Tax to the reservation prices. We felt it was pleasanter for you to have the price include everything, rather than have us to collect local tax once you arrived! So when you arrive, the $ will be all taken care of, and you can relax and enjoy your stay with us.)
