The Bradford House

Here is where we get a chance to tell you a little about ourselves. We may talk about our families, interests, and what we do in our free time. We try to bring our passion for life to you through our business and this web site. Stephen and I {Filena} purchased the old farm property in 1998. We worked the first full season, restoring, wall papering, painting, cleaning, putting new roofs on, sills under sagging out-buildings, furnishing, and all the things that go with saving an old plantation that hasn't had much attention in years! We knew that we had a historic gem and paid close attention to detail. I have 6 brothers in the town and most all of them were there to help in the initial project. We even had some of their children step in and offer a hand as well. When our daughter and her husband came to visit, our son-in-law quickly built a wall we needed in our bathroom on 1st floor. One of our dear customers from Ohio [Jim Gross], a plumber for all the years of his life, arrived with enough plumbing supplies and knowledge to complete all our plumbing problems.With all the efforts of family ,friends, and us The Bradford House came to life again.Stephen and I had spent years in the automobile business, so we were now testing our ability to survive self-employed. We have a service business in Florida, where we have lived for 28 years.We now spend our summers in Maine at our beloved Bradford house.We have 5 children and 8 grandchildren and one greatgrandaughter, Lily. Our grandchildren love spending their summers in the little town of Patten,and playing man-hunt in the 110ft long barn. Stephen and I are working toward building our business enough that we can spend most of our life in Maine. As of June 1,2012 we will be open year around at the B&B. Finally we have arrived!!!!This year our oldest grandson had a new baby girl, our second granddaughter graduated and was certified as a Montessori  preschool teacher-bought a new home with her fiancee',and is planning a Feb. 2013 wedding. Our third granddaughter graduated summa cum laude with her bachelors degree in criminal justice from FAU in Boca Raton, Fl., our fourth granddaughter is graduating her senior class third out of a class of nearly 300 and is going to University of Miami to study Bi o medical engineering. Our fifth granddaughter is graduating from middle school and our sixth granddaughter is just entering middle school. Our two little grandsons are living in their new home in Powell, Ohio.The circle of life moves very fast!!!

The Bradford House

Built in 1840, this plantation stands proud to have endured the years. It once provided safety to people by the abolitionists by hiding them in the cellar in a hidden room.
