    Welcome to Boyden Farm! Since October of 1966 we have lived on the island as “rusticators” and “year-rounders.” Having visitors has been a tradition since even before we had a house to share with you! For over ten years we farmed and raised four of our children and a host of animals. There was nothing quite so wonderful as living there for all the seasons, feasting on the food we raised ourselves, and sharing our place with friends and family. The summer of ’98 marked the start of a new era of the Island Fam, opening our home to others who want to share this magical place for a weekend or extended stay with family, friends, or some quite solo time.  Over the years we have refurbished the cabins, added a couple of yurts and built a washhouse to accommodate our guests.  

    Our property consists of 25 acres of open fields, woodland, and granite located with a beautiful view of the pond and the backside of town.  Enjoy the barn deck to sit and relax under the stars or take a walk down to view the large vegetable garden.  Unique local shops and restaurants are a 10 minute walk into town.  A short, private path takes you to Lawson’s quarry, the place to swim and sun on the granite ledges on a summer day.  

    If you are looking for a place to truly unplug and connect to our beautiful island we know you will enjoy these simple accommodations, woodland paths, starry skies and family feel.

    Here are a few items to note for all 4 accommodations:

    The owners, Perry and Annie Boyden, live on site in the main house.  They love meeting new people; friends, singing groups, and grandchildren are always coming and going.   Please stop by to say hello and learn more about the island!  Telephone available for emergencies in the main house.  

    The driveway is a bit of an adventure, 4 wheel drive recommended, low cars can make it with care but parking is available at end of road (800’ walk).

    A shared washhouse is centrally located on the property, with drinking water, laundry facilities, and 2 full bathrooms/showers.

    Refrigerator available in the barn for the “glampers”.

    Be thoughtful of other sleeping guests when coming in late or getting up early. Quiet hours begin at 10:00 pm, thank you. 

    There is no Wifi available on site. Enjoy!  The library and coffee shops in town are available.  

    We cannot allow open campfires on the property and all buildings are non-smoking.  

    Sorry, no pets allowed.

    Age 25+ to rent.
