We enjoy the outdoors as much as our work schedule allows. Maine offers so many great areas to explore hiking, boating, hunting, biking, skiing, bird watching, fishing. Nature never fails to provide constant entertainment.
While at home, we garden for fresh veggies, apples and berries. We also tend our small flock of chickens and ducks for fresh eggs every morning and have a flight pen for chukar partridges. We are training our hunting dog, a Brittany to point.
We have been landlords for 22 years for year round rentals and thought we would try short term rentals so we could travel in the bitter cold months without worrying about frozen pipes. And of course, to meet some new people! We have spent a great deal of time outfitting our places so they would be comfortable, convenient - a place where everyone would feel at ease and at home.
