1776 house at Tide's End Farm

" Tide's End Farm, a bed-and-breakfast tucked away on a turtle-shaped spit of land off Sheepscot Bay called the Knubble. The location is Georgetown, a fishing town just southeast of Bath...you can take lessons, or just relax and read on the screened porch overlooking the cove....Liia Becker is a perfect host, welcoming, but never hovering. The bed-and-breakfast is set in a white clapboard, 1770s farmhouse, one of the last remaining original homes in the area, which Becker has updated. It's not too fussy, and plenty comfortable, with polished pine floors, fresh flowers in the bedrooms, and a screened-in porch."

By B.J. Roche,Boston Globe Correspondent, 9/14/2003

"Tide's End Farm offers a women's retreat that is a welcome getaway from high-stress jobs, relationships, kids and life. Becker sees more women taking time for themselves to come to the farm and enjoy all that the program has to offer, and in the process nurturing themselves through their relationship with the horse....Becker's integrated approach, which helps address both the mind and body, helps create a meaningful, worthwhile experience for all participants." Read the whole story in Horsemans Yankee Pedlar December, 2005.

We have also been featured in The Portland Press Herald, Equine Journal,Horsemans Yankee Pedlar, Coastal Journal, Lincoln County News, Horse Illustrated, American Profiles and The Tide.
