THE BARN

With its two and a half story vaulted ceiling and open 2,400 square feet of entertaining space, The Barn at Flanagan Farm, meticulously restored in 2012, comfortably accommodates up to 250 guests depending on your layout and event agenda. A state-of-the-art sound system, cleverly disguised in the barn’s rafters, offers phenomenal sound and acoustics no matter which type of entertainment you select for your event. Dragonfly-etched sconces and three whimsically sophisticated chandeliers radiate a warm elegance throughout.

The former chicken coop, fully open to the barn, has been re-fashioned for use as a bar with reclaimed barn wood, Carrera marble countertops, a vintage slate sink and floor to ceiling wine storage enclosed by chicken wire cabinetry. The gentlemen's hayloft lounge, located just above the bar and accessed by a grand staircase from the barn, is furnished with a mahogany leather Chesterfield sofa, a pair of overstuffed, striped chairs and a vintage Turkish Kilim rug.

The custom, twelve-foot windowed rear barn doors open onto a bluestone patio (with outdoor sound system), manicured grounds and a cleared undulating six-acre pasture, or to dinner and cocktail tents should you choose to have them.

Special features in our unique 19th century space include modernized amenities like separate power for extra sound systems and lighting and a heating and cooling system to keep guests comfortable in any temperature.

Also overlooking the pasture, the smaller, English-style barn, constructed in 2015, provides an additional 900 square feet of entertaining space. Perfect for cocktails, rehearsal dinners, or Sunday brunches, our second barn makes for seamless and easy hosting over the course of your entire stay. 

 

THE FARMHOUSE

The sophisticated 2,400 square foot farmhouse, re-imagined and refined by Brooklyn-based interior designers David Nastasi and Katherine Vail of Nastasi Vail Design, offers fully furnished accommodations for up to twelve guests. The luxurious and tranquil home, whose renovation was profiled in The New York Times, provides a stunningly comfortable place to unwind and prepare for your event. The three-season groom's cottage, located just off the exterior of the house, is the perfect gentlemen's retreat—featuring a stocked bar, outdoor shower and views of the cleared, six-acre pasture. The professional kitchen is fully equipped with two dishwashers and farm sinks, Carrera marble countertops and a soapstone island and houses dinner service for up to twenty-four guests.

THE GROUNDS

The sixty-six acres of The Barn at Flanagan Farm were designated a Forever Farm by Maine Farmland Trust in 2011. Within this estate, the wide and cleared, six-acre rolling pasture provides ample space for dinner and cocktail tents, room for play, pear and apple trees and white flowering plants. The private woodland sanctuary, accessible by two meandering, custom-designed boardwalks, is perfect for those desiring plein-air ceremonies. The propane-fueled grill, bluestone patio, outdoor fire pit and sound system invite sumptuous meals al fresco and all-season lounging.
