Just 35 minutes from downtown Portland, Shady Lane Farm is a focal point in the historic district of New Gloucester, Maine. Its 60 plus acres of woods and walking paths adjoin other historic farms, making it a uniquely expansive and peaceful rural landscape. The farm was the 19th century homestead of Maine's leading apple expert, and picturesque heirloom apple trees border the surrounding pastures.
The grounds include a pond, gardens, a spacious lawn, open fields, and a rustic arbor. The Federal style house has an attached apartment which serves as a bride/bridal party dressing room. The barn is unheated, so is appropriate for use from June through September.
- Includes use of the property during a three-day time frame for set-up, rehearsal, the event itself, and clean up.
- It also includes use of the attached apartment as a lounge / dressing room.
