House is a 2 block walk from Fore River and Casco Bay. Neighborhood called "Ferry Village" because the ferries to Portland left from here before the bridge was built. Lovely neighborhood for walking. 2 blocks from Greenbelt Walking Trail. House and yard have distinctly peaceful feel. Guests are welcome to spend time on the side porch which overlooks garden and backyard patio. Grill, fire pit and children's playhouse plus basketball court next door make it perfect choice for families with children. House built in 1850's so rooms are a fine size for beds, dressers, chairs but not as big as some modern homes.

Host has a very well-behaved, non-shedding, 'hypo' allergic female Portuguese Water Dog named Bizu. Guests' reviews praise her quite a bit.
I expect guests to be considerate of neighbors and neighborhood. Absolutely no smoking except when outside in the backyard patio. There is flammable mulch around all the plants so when smoking in backyard, ashtrays are essential. One dog may be allowed with some agreements and a possible additional $100 cleaning fee. Just email me and we'll figure out.
Happy to meet, but house is setup so its easy for guests and host to have privacy. Private staircase to guest suite.
