New to coastal Maine lodging is the historic 18th century house at Blue Skye Farm Bed and Breakfast, in Waldoboro, Maine.

Minutes from the fabulous Maine coastline and within easy reach of Portland, Freeport, Boothbay Harbor and Pemaquid to the south and Belfast, Camden, Rockport and Rockland to the north, this restful countryside B&B retreat is the perfect accommodation for those touring Midcoast Maine wanting to enjoy the activities on offer here:

Built in 1775 by Abijah Waterman, Blue Skye Farm is now owned by an English/American couple, Jan and Peter Davidson, who have converted it to a small bed and breakfast inn.

There are 2 bedrooms on the ground floor and 3 upstairs. The Lower North and Library rooms (often taken as a 2 room suite in the summer) share a large bathroom with an antique clawfoot tub and shower.

If requested, by booking Lower North with Private Bath, our Library Room can be closed to ensure guests reserving the Lower North, with its big fireplace, the exclusive use of the bathroom.

The upstairs rooms all have private baths.

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 three 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 where guests can choose a light breakfast from the fruits, cereals, yogurt and juices always on offer. For those planning a vigorous day's exercise, there is also the daily ‘special’, hot from the kitchen, to keep you going until lunchtime! Where possible, our kitchen uses organic products. Our 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.
