This listing is for a cozy bedroom and private bath located in a clean, comfortable home in Deering Center of Portland Maine. It is a five mile drive from both the airport and train/bus station and about the same to the Old Port, so very centrally located. The neighborhood is quiet and safe with with coffee shops, local food markets and good restaurants all within walking distance. The bedroom and bathroom are on the first floor of a two story house.
I have a really detailed guest book with faq's that can be emailed once booking is complete. It also has reccomendations for places to go, things to see, places to eat.
Guests will have access to the whole downstairs where the rented bedroom and bathroom is. There is a small room upstairs (the orange one) with a bookshelf for borrowing books if desired. There is also a second bathroom that I use upstairs, if needed. The kitchen is clean, with new appliances, and outfitted to cook any kind of meal. It is a chef's kitchen! There is a backyard with a firepit an a ton of green space all around the neighborhood for a nice morning walk or run.
Interaction with guests
I live in the house. But during the summer I am very busy. I will make myself available by cell phone to answer any questions or concerns. I do cook quite a bit in my kitchen. I am a professional chef and sometimes do work at home to prepare for events.
Other things to note
I have a dog that does not have access to the rented rooms. She is extremely friendly and docile. Picture is attached.
