Where you’ll be

Kittery, Maine, United States

Consider us a French "Cabot Cove", Paris, Portsmouth across the Piscataqua, where the mouth meets the sea. Though the neighborhoods in Maine are eclectic. Lobsterman near a Stockbroker, musician across the street from a school teacher. Where else can you watch fireworks on the 4th of July from the quay? A stroll over the bridge from Portsmouth, NH, Kittery is a sleepy town waking, an international neighborhood with great food, art, spas and shopping.Something to do all seasons for everyone. Market Square day in June, Kittery Block party in June, Dancing in the street in July. Concerts in the park in July & August. Theatre in the park in Summer months. Zip lining, rope climbing, learn how to surf or just get some much needed R&R and pampering. Spas and yoga studios, qigong and tai chi. Chili cookoff in September . Great Museums. African burial grounds. Great Culture, Cool summer nights and warm ocean days. Kyak tours, canoe and paddle boating. Surf school nearby. Excellent musicians all year round( check the schedule of PortsmouthMusicHall/Calender), outdoor inexpensive concerts in Summer. Magnificent Foliage in the Autumn. Great snow shoeing, cross country sking in winter. Downhill sking not far. A place to enjoy Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. We bid you a warm welcome into our home which is nestled on 2 acres of land, walkable in three seasons, snowshoe-able and cross country ski in winter. We are not far from the ocean with lots of places to walk, hike and be entertained, very close to Mt. Agamaticus and only an 90 minutes from the white moutains ; There is lots all very near by. Portsmouth is across the bridge, within easy walking. The ocean is a 12 minute drive, 4.2 miles ( hai temple and many Christian churches , some in walking distance others a short drive nearby.
There is a rec. center 1/2 mile from our home where you can enjoy a free indoor walking track.
As noted earlier we are in a typical Maine neighborhood, eclectic, nestled away on 2 acres of land. One neighbor is actually a lobsterman.

Hello, Kittery Oasis was designed to create an oasis of relaxation and peace amidst the chatter of the world. Enjoy the flash, excitement of the city and then return to the Oasis, where I and my life partner will create an ambiance of Peace and Relaxation and restoration. We decided to open our home to travelers after we have had the privilege of traveling to monasteries all over the world. We wondered how we could provide balance to others who travel. Share, share , share what we have. Nutrition, Earth's Safety, Quiet Mind, simplicity. A world of unique, not matching in uniformity, but representing creativity. We enjoy all these aspects of our life while living in balance of the world. We want to share this with you , simply by offering our example. Tom loves his coffee and will provide the best organic, Sumatra. We practice yoga and meditation. Tom is a Reiki Master and a Quaker too and a teacher of Yoga. These qualities just pour out. Respectful of you as you are. Respectful of us as we are. My motto: It's not how long one has forgotten this inner Joy and Peace but how quickly one remembers It.
