The Space

Yes, we're 1 block off Maine St in Brunswick. Walk to everything great about this town, and stay in a bright, cheery, green cleaned home before/afterward!

Home of tree huggers who clean naturally and recycle/ compost.

Sleeps 5 in summer plus extra airbed to add 1 more adult = 6. (Colder months >> sleeps 4 in beds upstairs + 1 in airbed on main floor.) Ideally fits 2 adults, 2 children.

Comfy California king with natural latex mattress covered by feather bed in "master" bedroom. Second bedroom upstairs looks like an old ship's cabin with 2 built-in beds (larger than twin, smaller than a full -- fit is for shorter/ smaller adults or kids). In summer months, basement is partially finished with a full futon to be converted into sleeping space (with its own 3/4 bath) and otherwise finished part of basement is an entertainment area with TV & wet bar.

Loads of books in our library/ office with a few reading nooks through our home.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to nearly the full house, minus one office while they are here.

The Neighborhood

Location, location, location is one reason we love our place. We're one block from Maine Street, the heart of Brunswick. A few blocks to the river in one direction and 4 miles from the ocean in the opposite direction.

Our neighborhood is a mix of old homes including housing for former millworkers back in the 1800s-1900s, updated to apartments, multi-family and restored single family homes.

Everything else is a few blocks away...groceries (Morning Glory natural foods and Hannaford's), restaurants/ pubs, pharmacy, public library, post office, art galleries, cinema.

Bowdoin College and the Maine Summer Music Theatre (MSMT) is about a 15 min walk from our home.

Getting around

Brunswick Explorer bus stop is 1 block from our home, connecting all major locations in Brunswick for $1.

We're a 7 minute walk to the Brunswick Amtrak station and Concord Coach bus stop connecting you to Boston, Portland, Rockland (seasonal), and the rest of the world.

  • We had an awesome stay in Brunswick. The home is in a perfect location. It is beautifully maintained and the owners are extremely friendly and helpful. We couldn't have asked (email hidden) to stay or nicer hosts.

About
My daytime job is working for a think tank; evening/ weekends - help my husband with our company ("made for me" performance apparel that is safe for people and the planet). I'm a mostly vegetarian tree-hugger who has visited 30+ countries and lived overseas in Asia. Have stayed in a gamut of lodging in my work & fun travels -- from the Mandarin Oriental to a homestay in Cusco to a US$3/nt cement block-wall hotel in Delhi.
