Map: Street











This classic foursquare Federal home known as The Archibald-Adams House is one of the oldest standing historic homes in Cherryfield & is on the National Register of Historic Places. Once home to the Post Office & Court House many artifacts found within remain intact from the early 1800's & will convey with the home. As you pass from room to room you can't help but appreciate the intricate details from mantels, door latches, moldings, 12 over 12 windows & the many fireplaces that grace the property. After being fully restored in the 1990's this museum like home is in exceptional condition. Enjoy the sights & sounds of the river from the veranda, gazebo, yard or waters edge. Present owners operate an intimate B&B and reside in the property year-round. A small 490s.f. cottage w/ kitchen, living, 1 bdrm & loft sits just behind the house and is rented as part of the B&B. They just don't build houses like this anymore.

    I know someone will wonder so…the home sits up high enough to be in Zone X minimal flood hazard, of course one should verify for real if interested.

      I figure if it’s been standing for 200+ years, it should be OK. More than OK – it’s a treasure.

      That is the Narraguagus River behind it. In all my years in Maine (my entire life, so 40+), I do not ever remember this river flooding.

    I’ve liked all the houses Kelly’s posted in Cherryfield, quite a few for a small town Down East.

    Pictures 7 and 8 almost made me cry. That is gorgeous. I don’t even have words. This one hit me in the feels.

    My wife and I stayed here a year ago. A very nice place, close to lots of coastal adventure.

    Lovely home ! It appears that that creek, or whatever it is, actually sits above the home. Is that a trick of the eye??

    Ideal location with the river right there! I love the whole place. Could imagine living there with the first picture, and that’s rare. Wish I could snap it up.

    One of my all time favorite listings on OHD! If I had the money, I’d seriously consider making the move up north and that’s something this southern girl just doesn’t do!

    This house just breaks my heart – it is so beautiful and historic and a great locale (although with global warming, I would be a bit concerned that it would flood). I have always said that if I could move back to the States, it would be New England and this house would be perfect (especially if they threw in the furniture) but my health is not good and I don’t think I would be able to get health insurance or if I could I would need to be a multi-millionaire to afford it. But thanks for posting it – it is a real treasure.

    This house would make it worth my while to move to Maine. I wouldn’t mind the winters at all. I love the size of the rooms, and all the natural light. I do wish there was more land with it, though.

    1885 Italianate.

    Did anyone do street view? There’s another similiar big beauty right down the road. Nice looking area and pretty home.

    Lovely home.

    Houses like this one are my favorites. I’m so lucky to have ended up in one. Maybe someday, mine will look as good as this one does. I AM working on that. it IS expensive. One of the toughest things is to strike the right balance between authenticity and livability. These folks seem to have nailed it.

    Very nice home. Glad they kept the cooking hearth. Always my favorite part of an old home.

    I swear, every time I look at this one it looks like that creek is at a higher elevation than the house. It doesn’t bother me though, I love the house and the nearby creek 🙂

    Beautiful entrance. Great exterior and love the river property. After all these years it is still there so I wouldn’t worry much about the river. I’d move for this.

    Could anyone say what the taxes might be
