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.
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.
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.
Basic courtesy- please leave our house the way you would like to yours to be left. We are a non smoking home and can not allow pets.
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.
