The three CABINS have spectacular views of the river and are ideal for families and travelers with pets. They are cozy, clean, and beautiful, and each includes a queen and a double bed with cots available for larger families. Each cabin is also fully equipped with a kitchenette so lobsters may be cooked in as an alternative to going out. Guests will enjoy sitting on the lawn watching the ebb and flow of the peaceful river.

The GARDNER HOUSE INN is a restored eighteenth century farmhouse and is the third oldest house in the Machias area. There is only one room in the Inn, so privacy is assured. In a relaxed, bed and breakfast atmosphere, guests enjoy access to three private areas: the Keeping Room for breakfast, the Library for relaxation, and the Guestroom for a peaceful night's sleep, with its luxurious king-sized, pillow-top bed. Free Wi-Fi is available.

"Micmac Farm is an unspoiled paradise, which we feel privileged to have been visitors, however brief our stay."

MICMAC FARM offers lodging to those looking for a place of seclusion and privacy far off the beaten path. The property is situated in Down East Maine on the tidal portion of the Machias River nestled in the seclusion of fifty acres of woods and surrounding fields.


There are nature trials to hike, wild Maine blueberries to pick, humming birds to admire in the flower gardens, and roaming fields to let the dog run - all on the same property. Guests are encouraged to take a casual walk along the shoreline paths where bald eagles, great blue herons, and playful seals may be spotted. Guests may launch a canoe or kayak close by and paddle down the river's tranquil waters, or sometimes simply unwinding in one of our Adirondack chairs, letting the gentle Maine breeze sooth the soul, is the best way to enjoy the day.
