Description

The Space

Large well lit 2nd floor bedroom (13x14 feet) with California king size bed. You have a private bath with a claw-foot tub (no shower). Mini fridge and microwave in your room. Walk-in closet. Easy access to US295, Portland Jetport, Amtrak DownEaster and Bus. Walking distance to downtown (.75 mi.) Back Cove (.5 mi.), Deering Oaks Park (.25 mi.) , Portland's Arts district (.75 mi.) and Portland's Old Port Area (1.5 mi.). Literally feet to the University of Southern Maine Campus. Off street parking.

Martha has a working fiber art studio in our house. Ask her to show you around.

Your breakfast of homemade scones, berries, yogurt and coffee/tea will be left on a tray outside your room door at approx. 8 a.m. You can then sleep in and have breakfast in your room whenever you wish. You are on vacation after all.

Please check our calendar for availability. Any date that has not already been reserved may be booked. There is no need to contact us prior to booking for availability questions.

Sorry no pets allowed.

We are a cooking family and our kitchen is in near constant use. The kitchen is the first room you see when entering our house and you should not expect it to appear spotless. As a family we have a relaxed attitude about OUR living areas.

There are 20 steps involved to get from the first floor up to the room which is on the second floor. If you have trouble with steps this room is probably not for you.

We allow guests to use the microwave and store foodstuffs in the refrigerator. Other than that kitchen use is prohibited.

If you are not going to be able to check-in earlier than 10 p.m. please book with another host, sorry no exceptions.

The TV is attached to a Roku player only. Netflix is provided. No cable or satellite TV is provided.

We have had a few complaints that we have a claw foot tub but no shower so if you plan on staying with us keep in mind that there is NOT a shower.

All children (including babies) count as people, so two parents plus a child would be 3 guests. The 3rd guest is $25 per night.

You will be provided a key so that you may come and go at will during your stay. You must always use the back door which is adjacent to the driveway where your packing spot is located on the right hand side of the driveway. One of the images in the listing shows both where you should park and the house entrance.

PLEASE fill out the Airbnb Profile, include a picture and tell us about yourself. We only consider those with a profile for reservation acceptance.

Thank you.
