Located in the countryside with expansive vegetable and ornamental gardens, we are only 12 minutes from downtown Portland and 5 min. from the seashore and the town boat landing. We have 7.5 acres of ornamental and vegetable gardens, a pond and poolside patio. We also raise chickens and keep bees.

The space

We live in a 14 room farmhouse with a guest room and private bath located at the back end of the house overlooking gardens, field and pond. We have 7.5 acres of rolling farm land and extensive vegetable and ornamental gardens. We close off the guest room area from the other five bedrooms so that our guests and we can have privacy. Guests are welcome to enjoy our kitchen, sun/family room which looks out over the patio and pool area. We can offer one other bed room with private bath in the hallway for an additional one or two people, but guests will have to enjoy our college-aged son's choice of "jungle" decor. If you wish to rent this additional room, the fee is $75.00 a night and we would need to submit a change order for pricing to airbnb.
We are 12 minutes from downtown Portland and twenty minutes from the airport. We offer ample off road parking.

Staying in our home is a bit like experiencing New England as it used to be. Once on the underground railroad, this well-kept farmhouse, barn and outbuildings offers a stately charm.

Guest access

The room is equipped with a mini fridge and coffee maker, but a simple breakfast is also available in our kitchen if you prefer.

Interaction with guests

With a semi private entrance, guests are free to come and go on their own, or join us in the sun room and kitchen/family room area.

Other things to note

We have a very friendly dog named Sadie who is not allowed in the guest area.

Wonderful airbNb location and wonderful hostess! The place is very peaceful, the bed is comfy, and Layne's breakfast is amazing! We appreciated the thoughtful touches, such as fresh flowers, as well. 110% pleased with our stay!

Layne's property was an amazing stay for my girlfriend and I. There is a beautiful (and huge) backyard area to just sit and enjoy some quiet, a vegetable garden, patio/pool along with lots of other amenities. Layne herself was extremely kind, welcoming and flexible. She also cooked some amazing breakfasts for us each day we were there. It's the perfect location in that it's in a beautiful, quiet area all while being 15 minutes from basically anywhere in Portland!

Layne's house is a beautiful, peaceful country retreat. The rooms, lawns and gardens are utterly charming and lovely. Location is also really convenient to Portland downtown. Most importantly Layne and her husband are wonderful and warm hosts and truly make you feel welcome in their lovely home.

If you are looking for a lovely picturesque spot with privacy, but is also very close to Portland and other sightseeing areas along the coast, we definitely recommend this spot. Layne is a delightful host and had amazing homemade breakfast for us each morning in the covered porch area outside. The gardens are beautiful and the frog pond was lovely as well. We enjoyed exploring the sites during the day and then coming back to the quiet grounds. Had a nice picnic at dusk by the pond. A gem of a spot!

Layne gave us a full tour of her farm and studio on arrival, and made us feel right at home. We especially loved the beauty of their garden and pond. Layne served a delicious breakfast both days. The place was perfectly situated for our tastes - a country place quite within reach of Portland for trips to the city, which we also enjoyed. Layne afforded us plenty of privacy but was quite available and helpful, too.

My friend and I recently stayed with Layne on our NE coast adventure. She and Daniel were both so great and very helpful when it came on local recommendations! The property itself is beautiful. We enjoyed a homemade breakfast on the patio (delicious with a wonderful view to top it) and were able to stroll around the grounds. The bedroom was comfortable and charming with an en suite bathroom, fridge, and coffee maker per description. Would definitely recommend/visit again!

We stay at Layne's farm house the last day of our Maine trip. I am so glad we did it. It's the perfect place for everyone on their road. It's so charming, comfortable and relax...We love walk around her beautiful land, the lake, my little boy feed her chicks and we all love her very special pool around with flowers... The room is so comfortable,lovely and quiet. I can view the peaceful pond from my window..We had truly wonderful stay. Layne is such warm and kind person to spend time with. She very kindly made us amazing breakfast with fresh eggs it's so so so yummy...The location also great, 12 minuets to downtown Portland and 15 minutes to airport. This is one of our best airbnb experience and highly recommend to anyone and you will love it too!! Thank you Layne and wish to meet again! Xxx

I am an artist who works in a studio on our farm. I am also a gardener/farmer and spend most of April through Sept. tending to our vegetable gardens, chickens and bees.

I have always fantasized about running an inn or bed and breakfast. Airbnb has offered the opportunity to explore this without the complete commitment of doing it full time.
