This building has a most interesting past. Built around 1910, it was the town's first and only barber shop. Remember, Andover grew as the "sports" came from Boston and New York to hunt and fish the wilderness. The town was a stopover between the last train station and the lakes. It's hard to imagine Andover, Maine as a busy, bustling town, with four story hotels and many small shops catering to the tourists! The barber, Arthur Lang, cut many heads of hair over the years; indeed, he wore a circle in the hardwood floor around the barber chair! The little building was abandoned and dilapidated when we bought it in 2005, taking a lot of work to outfit it properly for functionality and aesthetics. On a whim, we ran a cafe there in the summer of 2008, rented it monthly for several years after that, and it officially became our third "vacation rental" in 2015. The Tiny House is happy to be the center of activity once again! Walk to the diner, general store, library, the village green.... drive five miles north to your own private playground where you can enjoy the amazing mountain view, sit around a campfire, nap in the hammock, or hike the trails.
