WILD IRIS FARM - CARRIAGE TOURS OF HISTORIC BAR HARBOR, WEDDING CARRIAGES, HORSE BOARDING
See Bar Harbor the way it was meant to be viewed - in a CLASSIC, OPEN CARRIAGE drawn by stately Shire draft horses! Up until 1913 no automobiles were allowed on Mount Desert Island. Horses and horse drawn carriages were the primary mode of transportation. Wild Iris Farm offers you the opportunity to experience that era gone by via a historic carriage ride through downtown Bar Harbor. Let one of our carriages, drawn by our experienced team of beautiful Shire draft horses, create a memory that will last a lifetime. The sound of the horses' hoofs clip clopping along seems to elicit a sense of relaxation and, for some, recalls distant memories of elders working with drafts. Whether you have a wedding, anniversary, birthday party, family reunion, a special event, or are looking for something different to do while in town, Wild Iris Farm has a carriage to meet your needs. Please contact us for more information regarding our availability and rates. Our downtown carriage tours and farm tours can be booked directly from our web site, www.WildIrisHorseFarm.com.
