Get the true feeling of a New England country farmhouse. It's just 20 minutes from hip downtown Portland and LL Bean in Freeport, Maine. Charming two-room suite plus an additional bedroom. You will have your own bath and private entrance. Looks out on vineyard and flower gardens.
We love living and working in our house. As only the sixth owners since it was built in 1793, we raised our kids here. Now we want others to enjoy this beautiful setting with us.
The 2012 addition allows us to live in our own space while our guests stay in the historic part of the home.
We offer a 2-room suite - bedroom with full bed and closet plus sitting room with twin bed and closet - and a separate bedroom with a double bed and closet. Guests have access to their own modern bath with 2 sinks, shower/bath, and heated floor during cold winters. A hairdryer is there for you, too. Coffee, teas and yogurt are available in our kitchen. Feel free to stroll the grounds and pick the flowers in summer. In fall, feast your eyes on the colorful foliage. In winter, bring your snowshoes or cross country skis to use on the trails throughout our neighborhood.
Our two pug dogs, Rosie and Belle, will be here to greet you. We ask that you not bring your pets.
Zugang für Gäste
Plenty of parking. Stroll the paths through the field and around the gardens.

Relax, enjoy yourselves, honor the work that we have put into this beautiful spot; please do not smoke; and feel the calm that comes from being here.
We have lived in this beautiful setting for over 30 years. Jack is a financial planner and works from our home. Laurie as an organization transformation consultant. We've always had pug dogs and now have two, Belle and Rosie, sisters who keep us laughing. During snow season, we (and you!) can cross country ski down the fields and across the road or in parks nearby. The woods that form the boundary on two sides are full of maple, birch, and oaks, which put on a magnificent show of color in the fall. We tap the maples for our own syrup. On weekends in the growing season, Laurie is often puttering in the gardens while Jack can be found on the tractor or splitting and stacking wood. Jack is a volunteer Firefighter/EMT and heads the town's volunteer Fire/Police squad.
