Description

Enjoy the beauty of the Rangeley Lakes Region from this Landmark Farm House on Grasshopper Hill set on 10 private acres among 250 acres of panoramic pasture, pond and woodland with breath taking views of Saddleback and Bald Mountain.

Built in the late 19th century and once one of the region's largest dairy farms, Grasshopper Hill Farm retains many of it's original features from the large eat-in kitchen to the claw foot bathtub to the formal parlor. Those who can appreciate Rangeley from it's earliest days will feel right at home.

The farm setting is a quiet and serene place. Grasshopper Hill Farm has been owned by our family for 40 years. My mother summered on Rangeley Lake all of her life and when she married my father they purchased the farm from Mr. Pillsbury. The Farm at that time was one of the largest dairy farms but my parents decided use it for recreation use only. The main house has been well preserved however, in the 70's the milking shed was turned into a large "play room" which connects out to the barn through an attached wood shed, the Attic area on the second floor was turned into 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom and a sitting area but the other 3 bedrooms remained in tact.

The farm setting is a quiet and serene. The property includes The Farm House, woodshed, attached out building which is all connected to the original Barn. Set on 10 acres including a pond.

Ideally we would like to sell the farm or lease it out to someone who would be able to bring the farming piece to the property up and running again. The best case scenario would be a family who loves it as much as we do.
