We only rent this one week/month during the "off-summer-season". Beautiful private apartment, first floor of our home. 35" to Castine/Belfast, 50" to Acadia; 10 miles to airport (BIA)/ Bangor/Brewer. We welcome all well-behaved, well-intentioned travelers to our home -- even furry friends (in fact, hubby is a vet)! Great for couples, adventurers, families. No Parties, but family events OK. NOTE: We held SuperHost status until July -- our standards haven't changed (not enough guest reviews)!
1,750 sf -- common entry room ("Front room"), 2 bedrooms with comfy double beds (one small bedroom with armoire, one large bedroom with closet/dresser) with direct access to outdoor patio. Laundry room with w/d adjacent to larger bedroom. #2 Queen-sized, high-profile Aero Beds that can easily be set up in larger bedroom and in Great Room, which also has a fold-down couch -- and a Pack and Play for little ones. The Great Room (roughly 25'x30') contains a newly renovated kitchen with all the amenities, a high-top table that can seat up to 8, the usual living room situation (couches, chairs, flat-screen TV with wifi/DVD) AND a "gaming area"! The games section has seating, Ms. PacMan Arcade Game, jigsaw puzzles/board games and a bar-sized popcorn popper!! We LOVE the space for visiting family and friends!!! Great Room opens to a paved patio with fire pit, small gas grill (new!) and the great outdoors -- see birds, deer, bunnies, foxes... even the rare bear!
You are welcome to all first floor areas and the Great Outdoors -- large screened front porch and patio off living room and bedroom are yours to use, in addition to the lawns, gardens and woods! There will be times when our kayaks/canoes will be available for your use in the many beautiful local lakes (if we're not using them) and bays -- we will provide foam pads and straps for securing to the top of your vehicle, as well as guidance on where to head for a nice few hours on the water! Although we do have two adult-size PFDs, we do NOT have sizes for children. Smaller condo unit in Bangor also available -- see under "Guest interaction".
We are available when needed but definitely not intrusive -- just text if you need a thing!!
PLEASE NOTE: We have a small, but perfect, condo in Bangor that is also available intermittently, should you need a smaller "launch pad". It is currently booked until early August, but we do have a couple of weeks available after that (See "Best in Bangor", 30 day minimum); the site won't let you book for only 3 days, but correspond with us here and we'll block those dates for you if needed.
Know that we do have #4 dogs and #4 cats -- although they don't access this apartment, they can make a bit of noise if they sense "intruders"!
We provide the basics for your first breakfast -- breakfast breads, coffee/tea, fresh eggs, 1/2 and 1/2; the water in the 'fridge door is from our well -- unbelievably sweet and clean! We also start you off with a complimentary bottle of wine and, if I'm not too busy, something from the oven!
Although this apartment is private, it is the first floor of our home. We share a common entry and you are welcome to use the front porch and back patio (with fire pit, gas grill), exclusively, in addition to the lawns, gardens and woods. We are present and available, but not intrusive; please observe "quiet time" after 9pm 'ish (just no loud music or partying) -- we both work and leave early in the am most days. No smoking on the property -- no exceptions, sorry. Do ask about "family events", but no parties!
