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.
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.
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.
Please no smoking! And, sorry, we cannot allow pets. Shoes off in the house is encouraged, though not required. There is a vacuum and other cleaning equipment in the house.

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.
