This is not a luxury Manhattan penthouse. But if you are coming to rural Maine, you aren’t looking for that. Carol offers a beautifully renovated house in a quiet and peaceful setting, yet easily accessible to Farmington and to nearby lakes and mountains. The kitchen is large and…

The house was perfect, had many amenities you might enjoy during your stay. Great location too!

Response from Sandy River:
Hi, Keeley- Thanks so much for "perfect" - We love our house, and I'm glad that it worked out well for you, your family and your pup! We try to have all the furnishings and basic supplies that people will need, to make it an easy & relaxed stay. And it's well insulated and heated for comfy year-round use. We *adore* our location - just minutes from Farmington with grocery stores, movie theater, restaurants, shopping - but the house itself is in such lovely rural spot - nature everywhere! We're also close to Sugarloaf, and Mt Titcomb (a local ski place with low fees, and low-key vibe!), and to the Belgrade lakes - but without the high resort prices, and with lots of space to stretch out and relax. Happy Travels! Sandy River House

This was a wonderful place for our family to stay for a family reunion held near by. Kitchen was super nice to cook in with Fabulous gas stove. Beds were incredibly comfortable. Carol the owner was a wonderful communicator. Had a wonderful 4 day stay.

Response from Sandy River:
Thanks for the kind words, Aurora! We were really happy that you and your family could stay at our Maine house, to attend the reunion at your relatives’ house. We have tried to furnish this second home so that it’s ready to go, and so that we, and our guests, will have all the basics they need, and then some, for a comfortable & relaxing stay. I appreciate your willingness to do the extra communication with me ahead of time, so I could feel at ease handing over the keys. Please come again!

We had a great time in the house. It's large (for two people, huge!), clean, and well equipped with books, DVDs, kitchen supplies, and blankets and pillows. We felt right at home--the house was very true to the listing--and enjoyed how quiet the neighborhood is. The small town ne…

Hi, Josh- Thanks for your nice review. We also think the house is really sweet for a quiet, refreshing getaway. We’re so happy when our guests choose us for the spacious and rejuvenating natural setting, and the chance for a relaxing time with friends or family. We have done a lot of work to make the space beautiful, and we really appreciate guests like you who take care of it as they would their own home. And it’s so neat that you are discovering all the fun in Farmington! We love the Narrow Gauge movie theatre too, and often stop at Giffords Ice Cream. Those are great favorites with locals and visitors. Please come again. :) Best, Sandy River House

The perfect house for a quiet getaway in Maine. The owners are kind, responsive and accommodating. The house is clean, beautiful, and well-designed. This was one of the first houses in New Sharon and features an original staircase and hand-framed doorways in addition to all moder…

Courtney- Thank you for your kind words! It feels like you love all the same things about staying at our house in Maine that we do. We love the area- rural, but not isolated, and close to lots of places to eat and things to do in Farmington. I hope you’ll be able to come back in the summer, and try tubing or kayaking on the river. Or in the winter, and having skiing nearby, or snowshoeing around right on our own 3 acres. We have put a lot of energy and thought into making the house relaxing and enjoyable to stay in, for ourselves, and for others. Making pies? Check! Sitting and watching the fire in the woodstove? Makes winter cozy! Watching the river go by from the overlook - so relaxing. Reading, catching up on movies, looking at the stars, having time to hang out with friends, listening to the birds all around, driving around the small towns, catching all the mountain views - it really is a special retreat from city life. Please come again! :) —Sandy River House
