Owner Daniel Bowe has a passion for lighting. Strategically placed LED strip tape underlights the cedar barn prows to warm and dazzling effect at this lakeside venue. “We wanted something more modern and fresh than the typical converted horse barn,” Daniel says. Clean finishes throughout the 20-acre estate add function and style to the bucolic environment. Polished concrete floors reflect chandelier light in the barn. White trim on the loft and entrance adds sophistication. And both the estate house and couples cottage feature spa-quality bathing facilities. This is rustic in a very smart wrapper 

The rustic property was designed for free-flowing events. It’s hard for a barn-turned-venue to stand out in Maine. This one does.
