Rent our Facility

When our residencies are not in session (October-June), the Fiore Art Center at Rolling Acres  is available for rent, in its entirety or by room, to groups or individuals whose reason for wanting to stay at the Center aligns with our mission. The farmhouse at the Fiore Art Center is spacious and beautifully renovated, while maintaining many period features. It provides an ideal setting for smaller group retreats.

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Rolling Acres Farm is a breathtaking 130-acre farm property located on Damariscotta Lake in the town of Jefferson. The setting is remote and peaceful, but not far from the lively and picturesque village of Damariscotta. Behind the elegant farmhouse and connected barn, an old dirt road curves down to the lake, through open rolling fields.

The farmhouse at the Joseph A. Fiore Art Center is spacious and beautifully renovated. The home, while retaining many period features, is equipped with a modern kitchen, spacious sunlit living quarters, and a dining area with an 8-foot reclaimed barn board table built by a local craftsman.

In addition to the spacious living/dining area, there is an 500 square ft. gallery space with antique wood flooring. The space lends itself perfectly to group gatherings, meetings, yoga classes and the like.

There are four bedrooms with full or queen beds (all with additional sleeping options such as roll-away beds and day beds), three bathrooms with bath or shower, and one additional powder room off the kitchen. There are also two additional rooms with futon couches, which can serve as extra bedrooms when the facility is rented in its entirety. Rolling Acres can accommodate six guests in private rooms, twelve in shared rooms, and up to eighteen if guests are sharing double beds.

There are two unheated studio spaces in the barn, and two heated studio spaces in the house (the latter can only accommodate limited art materials. Please see our guest handbook for more details).

The mission of the Joseph A. Fiore Art Center at Rolling Acres Farm is to actively connect the creative worlds of farming and art making. When our artist residencies are not in session, Rolling Acres Farm is available for rent to groups or individuals whose reason for wanting to stay at Rolling Acres aligns with our mission.
