470 Bonny Eagle

200 Year Old Farmhouse

Beautiful, rustic, large farmhouse. Perfect setting for wedding celebration.

We were blown away at how cozy and spacious the place is. There are so many areas inside and out to congregate without feeling crowded. We got married on a Friday and in lew of a traditional reception we had an I DO BBQ the following day. We had close family that live cross country that we wanted to spend more than a couple of hours with. All the bedrooms and sleeping arrangements made this such a perfect decision for us to be able to invite our parents and siblings to join us for the whole weekend. We got the personal one on one time we were hoping to have. There was so much space in the kitchens it made serving everyone for the day of the BBQ a breeze!

We were so surprised how well taken care of the home and property was! It is very well stocked with plenty of linens and everything you need. I loved that the place is so quiet and tucked away yet, the grocery store is only 5 minutes away should you need something. Everyone that came was just amazed at the home. It was a dream weekend. We didn't want to leave! My favorite part was that there are very little pictures of our day, everyone was having SO much fun, they forgot about about their phones for a day. That is so hard to come by now. This place made that possible, we had our dream wedding here.

Owner Yolindi as well as the property manager Dan were so easy to communicate with, very responsive and helped ensure we had a great experience. I hope that someday we have another event just to be able to do this all over again.

We Had An Amazing Trip.

A group of us took the 2 hour drive from Boston to come stay at this gorgeous old farmhouse- and we couldn't have asked for a better stay! A handful of us were participating in the Tough Mudder which was in Westbrook, about a 20 minute drive, so this was the perfect location. The house was only about a 40 minute drive to downtown Portland, so the people that weren't participating in the race had a perfect Saturday bar-hopping, brunching, and shopping. The house itself was even nicer then we could have hoped for. It was huge, could easily sleep 16+ comfortably. The kitchen was our favorite part, because it was large and had a great island we all stood around, playing cards, eating, and enjoying! The property was pristine. There was a large fire-pit in the backyard with ample bench seating, and we could see cows from the farm adjacent to us. They provided plenty of bedding, towels, and kitchenware. The game room was great for the younger kids that were with us, equipped with foosball, guitar hero, and half a dozen other games (with lots of seating). Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better house to enjoy our weekend getaway in! What you see from the pictures is what you get- plus more! The perfect fall weather helped, but the house made the experience so wonderful. We will definitely be back next time we grow tired of the city! Yolindi- thanks for making sure we had an amazing trip.

I Seriously Can Not Say Enough Great Things About This Visit.

I seriously can not say enough great things about this visit. My fiance and I were looking for a place to get married. What a beautiful perfect place for all of us sleep. The grounds keeper went more than above and beyond to make sure that everything was perfect for us. The neighbors at the Buxton logging were so neighborly and actually let us rent some old farm like wooden benches and well as let us use their road for parking. Absolutely amazing. I can't complain about anything. And I should add that although we didn't meet Yolindi in person, she had checked in to see how we were doing-not just at her place but as a bride getting ready. Seriously, a great place to be. Ohhh!! and the town is great too with all the businesses in little old houses.

We Had A Great Time At This Lovely Farmhouse.

We had a great time at this lovely farmhouse. Yolindi was a wonderful host and stayed in communication throughout our stay for any issues or concerns. This is a perfect home retreat for large families and children. Outdoor area provided great opportunities for foliage photo ops. The home is about 37 min away from downtown Portland where we grabbed our dinners and tours of the city.

I Highly Recommend This Rental.

This beautiful farm home that had everything we needed to celebrate Thanksgiving with family from near to far. There was plenty places to sleep. The small attached apartment was the perfect addition for my brother with his small children where quite was necesary. Memories were created and beautiful pictures captured. If you appreciate a New England retreat, I highly recommend this rental.

Beautiful Piece Of Property

A group of friends and I came up to this house from Boston for a retreat for the weekend. We had a great time in the farmhouse. Yolindi had provided us with everything we needed. The house is on a beautiful piece of property, close enough to Portland that you can enjoy the city but also secluded enough for a relaxed weekend. Would definitely recommend coming here with a group.

I Would Highly Recommend This Home.

Our family of 8 adults and 6 children just spent the Christmas holidays at the farmhouse. It was absolutely lovely - cozy and charming. The house itself was large, clean, and very fully equipped. We were able to cook all of our meals there, and even put up a small Christmas tree! The backyard was a hit with the kids. They played outdoors and one night we had a fire in the fire pit. I had a couple of questions before our visit, and Yolanda responded immediately, in a very friendly, helpful way. I would highly recommend this home.

I Would Stay Here Again.

Yolindi always got back to me in a timely manner. The house was beautiful and clean. Plenty of sleeping room. It was nice to see the beds all made up already. Plenty of towels. I did, however, miss the fireplace as I do not have one at home. There was enough room for all of us to be together. Plenty of room for parking as we came in more than one car. I would stay here again.

Great House For A Large Group.

The house was big enough for our large group and the multiple bunkbed combinations made it flexible for sleeping arrangements. There was enough bedding, covers and towels for everyone and the play room accessories made it fun for the little ones. Since it snowed, we were able to go sledding in the back yard and we made a lovely fire in the fire pit which we all enjoyed thanks to the large benches. Overall, it was a great house for a large group. My recommendations to libby would be to update the seating furniture in the main livingroom. It consisted on two futons Ikea style which were extremely uncomfortable and not friendly for spending time after dinner and relaxing. The fire place was not working either so that room was disappointment. I would also recommend updating the kitchen tools and cooking utensils. THere was plenty of them but really difficult to work with (ie. spatulas that come appart when you use them, cheap plastic spatulas, can openers than don't work and poor knives). Upgrading these items will make a big different for a group like ours where we enjoy cooking all meals and spend time talking and hanging out in the premises. Overall a great house for a large group.

The House Was Fantastic.

The house was fantastic. It was clean, slept all of us comfortably, and had a nice charm to it. Wish there was a better understand of the land make up. Not as much access to the woods in the back yard immediately. Still a solid house for the outdoors man or woman.

Best Air BnB Experience I Have Had.

We decided to come here for my friend's bachelor party and we could not have been happier with out choice. First, Yolindi was an amazing and responsive host who let us check in a little early and check out a little late. When we first arrived, we were blown away by all the games (yard games, ping pong, etc) we had at our disposal. The house was sparkling clean and organized and even bigger than we imagined. The location was beautiful too with amazing views of the surrounding woods. We also spent one night around the firepit and just enjoyed the fresh air and being at the house. Dan also came by on our last day and gave me great tips about the hiking and other activities that could be had in the area. This is definitely the best Air BnB experience I have had. Thank you!

House Was Perfect!

This house was perfect for a big group of our friends who escaped Boston for the weekend to celebrate the up coming wedding of our friends! The home was in tip top shape and Yolindi was beyond helpful with information and checking in to make sure everything went smoothly. The space inside was large and very accommodating with two kitchens fully equipped. The outdoor space was beyond amazing. The fire pit was great, the abundance of outdoor games was impressive. All around this house was perfect would recommend to anyone! Definitely look forward to staying there again sometime!

Absolutely The Perfect House For Our Wedding.

This was absolutely the perfect house for our wedding. Our guest stayed comfortably for a night and everyone had plenty of space to move around. There are games and entertainment throughout the house and the open grass field was amazing as well. The facility was very clean and quaintly decorated. We would love to come back and make another stay. You guys truly made my wedding memorable.

I Can't Recommend This Place Enough

Yolindi was an absolute pleasure to work and communicate with, and her home in Standish, Maine was even better than we could have hoped for. The photos truly don't do justice to just how beautiful, spacious, relaxing, and comfortable the house really is. With plenty of sleeping space, cooking area, couches and Adirondack chairs for lounging, and a MASSIVE backyard for games and fun, my group could not have found a better place to stay. I can't recommend this place enough, or thank Yolindi enough for her caring professionalism.

Gorgeous and Incredibly Spacious.

Several months ago I was tasked to arrange a bachelor party. We settled on a weekend getaway in the Portland area, but there weren't any homes in Portland that could accommodate my large group. But! My group and I were glad we didn't stay in Portland, because we found something much better in Standish, Maine! Once we entered Yolindi's home, we felt immediately welcomed. Yolindi's house is incredibly gorgeous and incredibly spacious. It is truly full of comforts and amenities; wonderful furniture, bedding, bathrooms, kitchenware, and recreational this house has it all! The backyard is beautiful and the backdrop even more so. The living room fireplace may be off limits, but I completely understand why it would be. Besides, the fireplace makes the living room look homey, and guests have access to the outdoor fire pit (which is awesome). We were fortunate that it didn't rain both nights during our stay, and we immensely enjoyed the fire pit. Yolindi, and the property managers Dan and Mieka, were gracious, accessible, responsive, accommodating and helpful. Before this trip, I can't remember the last time I relaxed the way I did this past weekend. This property provided everything my friends and I were looking for, and enabled the bonding experience we wanted. If you are looking for a place that will provide you space, comfort, privacy, and charm, I would highly recommend staying at Yolindi's property.

The house was clean, cozy and charming.

We vacationed at The Farm this year for the first time. The house was clean, cozy and charming. There was plenty of room for our large family -- a bunch of us of all ages. We all enjoyed that there were so many places in the house and outside where a few could gather, mingle and or all of us be together for family activities. The kids loved the games in the garage and playroom. It was perfect for us and a great setup for reconnecting with each other. It had everything we needed. It was a great summer vacation. Can't wait to do it again.

We LOVED this property!!

We LOVED this property!! My family and I stayed for four nights to attend my mother's 70th birthday party in the area. The farmhouse was precisely as described - but honestly, the pictures didn't do it justice!! We were thrilled to find so much space, everything we needed, so much charm, and such a beautiful home. The fire pit outdoors was huge and wonderful. We ate our meals outdoors and used the gas grill - at one point we ran out of gas for the grill but we texted Yolindi and a new tank was brought to us and hooked up within a few hours. The bedrooms were very roomy and incredibly charming - I'm from Maine and I loved the decorating. All the modern conveniences - laundry was helpful to be able to use - and literally everything one would need. Bonny Eagle Pond Park is a few miles away and is a great place to swim (bring beach chairs and towels from home though) for free with plenty of parking. There are a couple of grocery stores within ten minutes of the property (and a liquor store) which made our visit super convenient. Seriously LOVED this place and had a wonderful stay - we definitely plan on going back!!

Our stay exceeded expectations

Our stay exceeded expectations from booking through departing. Yolandi is incredibly prompt, courteous, and easy to work with. The property manager Dan was friendly and professional. The house is full of charm and was the perfect fit for our large group. We found the firepit especially enjoyable. The place was very relaxing and exceeded our expectations. I hope to come back again.

Women's Retreat

"This was a perfect spot for our women's retreat. We were a group of 18 women ranging in age from 30-75 and it worked for everyone. First of all, everyone loved the house itself trying to find their way around with so many unique rooms. Having the apartment was great, we used the living room there to show our video sessions by projecting it on the wall. There was plenty of room to break into small group discussion groups. During our free time we enjoyed some adult coloring in the dining, some yoga in the upstairs game room and a scavenger hunt at a local flea market. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of bathrooms and a couple of us even enjoyed a good soak.

I would highly recommend this property for retreats, famiy reunions, wedding parties or just a nice getaway in the beautiful state of Maine. I enjoyed working with the owner, Yolindi, she was pleasant and accommodating."

Great place for a larger group

Very friendly accumalating owners. We had to check out late due to a vehicle breaking down and they allowed us to stay till 5:00 in the afternoon till the repairs were made. I would recommend this place to anyone.

The Complete Package!

This house is very clean and neat with all of the sheets, blankets, pillows, towels and washcloths supplied plus extras! We had a group of 21 and the house gave ample room to spread out or be together as needed. The property provided great sledding opportunities for the children and brave adults. Having two kitchens was a real blessing with preparing and cooking for a group. We had an issue with the furnace working properly when we first arrived but it was taken care of promptly. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!

Beautiful expansive property with an impeccable house

I was completely blown away by my weekend here. The whole property is beautiful and the house was way bigger than I expected. The layout is very cool and great for a large group trying to bond and hang out, but able to have separate spaces for when people need alone time. The house was beautiful and well kept and extremely comfortable. We will definitely be looking to come back again and again. My whole group can't stop talking about how great the place was. And the property managers that stopped by were so nice and accommodating. I HIGHLY recommend this property.

An Absolutely Fantastic Experience!

I led a retreat here with students from the Emerson College Center for Spiritual Life, and it was a fantastic place to go! The space is enormous and lovely, and in a remote enough location that one can enjoy quiet and privacy without being too far from town. I was especially impressed by the kitchen amenities- there are at least two of almost every important kitchen tool. In many other places I have rented our culinary endeavors have been impeded by a lack of good tools, but not here! Everything was clean, beautiful, and comfortable. The students also greatly enjoyed the wide variety of games, televisions, and other activities provided on the property during their free time. Yolindi is also fabulous to work with, was extremely accommodating and prompt in her communications, and was also exceedingly gracious of a few administrative bumps in the road that occurred on my side of the trip's planning. I couldn't recommend vacationing or retreating here more highly, and look forward to returning with future group events!

Perfect place for any group's getaway!

"I rented this house from Yolindi for a bachelor party weekend with 22 guys and we could not have picked a better spot! The house is big and has the qualities you're looking for when you want to escape into the woods of Maine. It features so many different places to hang: an upstairs game room with a Wii, an enclosed back porch with comfortable seating for relaxing moments, a massive yard for any use you want it for, a garage that became ground zero for most of our activities, and so much more. The house comes stocked with so many games/activities that you'll never be bored.

I think these two things speak volumes about the house: 1. We had an ugly weekend with weather. We never saw the sun and it rained quite often. Still, we had an amazing three days on the property. 2. As fun as our time was in the bachelor party atmosphere, I could easily see myself renting this house another time for a completely different event (like a family reunion or more tempered getaway with a group of friends) and I know some other guys at the house over the weekend were thinking the same thing.

Leading up to and throughout the weekend, Yolindi ALWAYS responded to my questions and messages promptly. She's a pleasant person and truly hopes her guests have an amazing time. I've rented places before where the homeowner is just in it for the money and you're strictly a business transaction to them, but not Yolindi. She's interested in seeing her guests have the best time possible! As property manager, Dan was incredibly helpful any time I needed him and he even hung out a bit when he needed to pay the house a visit. Great guy with an even better sense of humor!

All in all, I can't recommend this property enough. If you have a large group, you won't find a better house rented out or managed by better people!"

Just Wonderful!

We arrived for a family wedding and the farm house was just the right thing for our family... two grandparents, three adult kids and spouses and lots of grandchildren. Maine was having a heat wave of sorts in late July, so the fans in the farm house were tested to their limits. Fortunately, we weren't there in the afternoons. Night time was pleasant. The house has all the amenities you would want, including a family of wild turkeys early every morning that wander over the back yard. It sure beats staying in motel rooms because we had lots of family time to catch up on each other, since we mostly live in different places. The property managers, Dan and his wife, are very helpful. It was re-assuring to know there was someone close by who could respond, if necessary. Fortunately, we had everything we needed.

Plenty of space and everything you need

Rented this house for a guys weekend and had a great time. The owner is friendly and responsive and the property managers were also very helpful, friendly and accessible. There was plenty of space...everyone had a bed and between the 2 kitchens, 2 living rooms and game room we had plenty of space even when it rained and we were inside. The yard is big and we had plenty of room to play yard games, etc. and although we brought most of that stuff they do provide almost everything you would need in that department as well. Overall the house was great, the yard was great and the people were great. Thanks!

A great house for our family reunion!

We held our annual family trip at the Farmhouse this year! It was truly a wonderful stay. The house was very comfortable for our party of 16. Yolindi was a great resource of information for beautiful sights to visit and was always available when contacted. We hope to visit again soon!

Everything is so well thought of and the shabby chic decorations are awesome!

The house was so welcoming, full of charm and conveniences! We were a family group of 24 and we slept comfortably. There was a little nook for all. This house is big! We set both grandmas in comfortable masters with their own bathrooms, and the rest of us shared the rooms and sleeping arrangements were possible in a ton of different ways. Yolindi was helpful in explaining the layout ahead of time. I loved the farm house kitchen! And thanks for providing the condiments, coffee, sugar, etc. Some of these things we had forgotten.

Graduation Trip

Yolindi has a beautiful place and we had a great time. The place is perfect for families and large parties, 16 of us stayed on a graduation trip - Sebago Lake and Portland nearby, s'mores and grilled lobsters, and a welcoming, responsive host. Definitely coming back.

Beautiful house, you won't be disappointed!

This house was just amazing. We had 16 adults stay here for the weekend and we never felt cramped and didn't even take advantage of the entire house because we were outside for most of the time. Lots of area to play games and the fire pit was a huge bonus as well. Great owner, easy to work with. The property managers are close by and responded very quickly to our calls. Recommend this to anyone with a large group.

Amazing house and location. Owner is super easy to work with.

Stayed at the farmhouse this past weekend with 16 guys for a getaway we have been doing for 14 years. There is so much room in the house we never felt cramped, let alone saw each other some of the time. The land around the house was perfect for cornhole, wiffleball, football and other activities. At night there is a huge garage to take the games indoors. The house inside was simply amazing. Plenty of beds for everyone and the 2 kitchens was a plus when storing all your food. Would recommend this to large families or groups wanting to stay away from resorts/hotels. Yolindi was so easy to work with on renting and the property managers were super helpful for any questions we had. Can't wait to stay here again.

Great place, great price and great Owner

We had such a great time at this place! Everything was as described and very neat. We were group of 18 people (including 3 kids) and had more than enough space (it has two separate stand alone kitchen!). Great price for such a quality 🙂
