Private country house for vacation for family/friends! Hike and/or explore the nearby Penobscot Bay coast and islands. Or stay quiet in this getaway so as to write, paint, meditate. The area was settled in the late 18th century, and there is much history available to enjoy. Hike and swim nearby, play tennis and shop in town. Some bookings flexible (3-day minimum) - do ask. Two or more weeks: discount. Some folks return summer after summer.

Le logement

Our historic cape on a quiet country road is generally available by the week only in warm weather. (The settings here resist my indicating it, but we occasionally invite people for just a few nights.) It's a lovely private country place for families, individuals, friends or lovers to relax, hike, bike, sleep and read. It has an eat-in country kitchen, sitting ("middle") room, living room, mud-room/pantry and a cozy double bedroom on the ground floor. There is a light and spacious double bedroom on the 2nd floor, and a single room too. One bath, on 2nd floor. Beds for 5 people.
We are artists, and have had this house and another next door (where we summer) since early 1970s.
We ask guests to bring their own sheets and towels unless otherwise arranged. Kitchen linens are supplied.

Accès des voyageurs

The house shares a driveway with our own house, just off a dirt road. Parking is alongside the driveway or in the lot in front of the barn.
There are sweet side and back yards to enjoy; the front yard in sloped. There is, in the woods beyond our house, a lovely writer's shed which is available by arrangement. It was built about 5 years ago for a playwright in the family who visits very occasionally.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

Normally we greet guests, show them around, and answer questions on first meeting. Soon after their arrival we invite them for a glass of wine in our house if they'd like. It is expected that both households are independent and that privacy is respected. We are friendly and glad to chat from time to time as neighbors - and certainly to address any questions or needs. If a guest arranges to be using the writer's shed they will be walking through our large back yard to get there. This seems to work fine with everyone.

Autres remarques

The Maine Fiddle Camp, a beloved multigenerational gathering, meets June 16-25 and August 6 - 18 at the other end of Trues' Pond. Sometimes the sounds of their shindigs can be heard, along with those of the loons, from the pond.
MOFGA's Common Ground Fair is September 22 - 24. We're close by and people love to stay here then.

Emily and Will's cape is a lovely retreat down a quiet country lane that runs along a little river. The are wonderful, helpful hosts who gave us our privacy while still being available to answer questions or give directions. When we arrived there was a comprehensive packet of markets, swimming and hiking in the area laid out in the living room. There were also fresh flowers on the kitchen table. We had a great time grilling in the yard, working on our art projects, and star gazing at night.

We loved staying at this lovingly restored charming cottage! After 9 nights it still didn't feel like enough and we hope to come back. Basically furnished w/ all necessities, the beds we used (upstairs) were comfortable, the snug shower was fine (w/ good pressure). Highlights for us was the beauty of the property, the stillness, the stars at night as we walked back from Maine Fiddle Camp, our 1 minute walks to the swimming spot (by the dam) just around the bend in the dirt road, the flowers, meeting the hosts and learning about their fascinating lives and the history of the property/area.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Montville! The area is lovely and within easy driving distance of historic towns, a swimmable lake that rents kayaks and canoes, a gurgling stream, a fabulous ice cream place and the coastal towns of Rockport, Camden, Belfast and Rockport. Emily and Will were delightful and the house is more spacious than it looks in the photos with numerous sitting areas, a sprawling kitchen with an old farm sink, three bedrooms and a second story. It has the feel of a wonderful old country home from childhood summers and we felt relaxed from the first moment we arrived. Having spent time in the Hamptons, this place seemed like an incredible bargain for the amount of space and historic Cape style. The owners' home is within walking distance and there are other artists and creative people in the area so you don't feel isolated but at the same time the house has plenty of privacy. One amazing bonus is the writer's cabin, which is the ideal spot to complete a book or academic writing project in the middle of the forest. Perfect for writers! I can't think of any better place to sit and write. We spent a great week there, enjoyed being invited over for wine and cheese with fireflies swirling around us, ate in some excellent restaurants on the coast, and took a sunset schooner ride. We look forward to going back. The house is very historic with scraped down wainscoting and original doors and latches from the 1800s and is furnished simply but well equipped. The bathroom is small but adequate and has a rain shower head but is on the second floor. Beds are doubles at the largest but comfortable...outdoor screen canopy indicated in photos was not in evidence but everything else was exactly as shown, house turned out to be nicer than expected..hosts were very helpful, fascinating and fun but not at all intrusive..I can think of few things better than spending a leisurely day in Maine,

Thanks for your detailed review, Kirsten. I'm sorry we didn't get the gazebo up before your arrival; that must have been disappointing. It's due to be done soon. In keeping with what you write, we'll update the house photos before winter. Come back soon!

The historic cape is a perfect spot to relax, listen to the birds and the water flowing in a stream nearby. The house is comfortable and well-furnished in a classic New England farmhouse style. Nearby are cool and fresh swimming holes, rolling fields of hay and blueberries, and lovely walks. The seacoast is just a short drive away. The hosts are terrific -- willing to offer any assistance needed yet non-intrusive, leaving you alone to enjoy the house and the area. I look forward to a return visit to this heavenly place!

We are both free-lance artists, met as students long ago. We share many interests including human rights, gardening, history and of course the arts...films, opera, blues, modern dance, good painting and photography. Emily has taught for many years; Will loves building and has restored several houses with Emily's help. He's also restoring old cars. (His Model T is running now.) Our family includes a daughter and her husband and their two young sons, as well as our own siblings and their families.
Emily is an active member of a Friends (Quaker) meeting in the city.
We've stayed as guests in airbnb places in Europe, which have been terrific. We enjoy hosting too.
