The space

Elegant home, built in 1875, with stunning hardwood floors, vintage details and tasteful, modern furnishings, located near downtown Brunswick and Bowdoin College. 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths (one with claw foot tub and overhead shower and the second recently remodeled and featuring a spacious step-in tiled shower). Queen in one room, full in another and a twin with trundle in the third bedroom (ideal for children). Formal living room as well as family room -- a family of 6 could stay here easily without getting in each other's way. Large country kitchen with dishwasher, sunny breakfast bar and way too much gourmet equipment. A full dining room with a table that seats 8 comfortably.

Available for long weekends in July and week long rentals in August. Ask about other dates, including Bowdoin Commencement and Parents' weekends.

Just off Rte 1 and close to beaches and the islands of Casco Bay.

Walk to downtown Brunswick in 5 minutes to enjoy wonderful restaurants, cute shops, supermarket, library, farmer's market, an antique mart and local movie theater, as well as the Maine State Music Theater.

A 5 minute walk to Amtrak's Downeaster or the Concord Coach (we're close enough to hear the train's whistle).

Relax on the deck, enjoy the blooming flower beds and vegetable gardens (which will be bountiful in July and August) or read in the peaceful wooded back yard. The perfect base for a family or group of friends who want to experience summer in Maine.

House Rules
Check-in is after 3PM

Sheets and bedding will be provided and the beds will be made up when you arrive--I ask that you strip the beds and put the sheets in the laundry room when you are leaving. The kitchen is not glamorous, but I have gorgeous pots and pans, Kitchen Aide, ice cream maker, Cusinart, everything a gourmet cook needs (well, the stove is basic) and you are welcome to use although damage will be deducted from a security deposit. To hold the place you'll need a security deposit of half the rent. I do have a cat and a hypoallergenic dog, but neither will be here during any time you are renting.

Safety features
Smoke detector
Carbon monoxide detector

2 nights minimum stay

Writer with flexible schedule looking to rent her big beautiful Maine house for a few weeks in the summer while I am away at writing retreats and on vacation. Also will consider house swaps (do you live in LA? The Bay Area? Let's talk!) I can't do without great movies, good books (there are so many in my house; don't worry if you forget to pack your Kindle) and wonderful food. I wish I had an updated, gorgeous kitchen, but I promise you, my utilitarian country kitchen contains every little thing you need, from lemon zester to cookbooks to muffin pans and Le Creuset Dutch Ovens...
