Recently renovated modern studio cottage, located in a quiet Portland neighborhood only a 7-10 minute drive (and $9 Uber ride) from downtown Portland, the Old Port, and all local visitor attractions. Allagash Brewing is just a mile down the road, and you are within walking distance (.5 mi) of the bars and restaurants at Morrill's Corner.

Everything in my cottage is new, hand-made, or 'upcycled' (my hobbies include refinishing antique furniture and building furniture).

The space
Sliding barn door for the bathroom, custom-made concrete countertop, handmade furniture and refinished antiques, USB ports for charging electronic devices. Modern rustic: the best of the old world and the new!

As a frequent traveler myself, I put a lot of thought into what makes a stay a fun, convenient, and relaxing experience, and designed some of the amenities and layout with that in mind. I hope you enjoy!

Where you’ll be

Portland, Maine, United States

Even though it's only a short drive away from downtown, my neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. You can look at the stars and fall asleep to the sound of crickets after a fun night in town.

Local neighborhood pubs (Samuels, Bruno's Tavern) and restaurants (Susan's Fish & Chips, Po' Boys & Pickles, Bruno's, Babylon) are located a short 10-minute walk away. The complex that hosts Allagash Brewing Company, Foundation Brewing, and Austin St Brewing is a short 25-30 minute walk away (and passes Noble BBQ, one of the best bbq restaurants in Portland).

Hello there! Thank you for considering booking my cottage. A bit about me: I have lived in Maine almost all my life. I grew up in Northern Maine, went to college at USM in Portland, and then moved away to Boston for 8 years to attain my MA in Intercultural Relations at Lesley University and work. While Boston had its perks, I could not wait to move back! I have worked mostly in higher education and study abroad, but I have plenty of retail experience under my belt as well. I'm also well-traveled (37 countries and counting!), and travel quite a bit across the US for work, so I'm happy to welcome people from all over the US and the world to Maine. While I have been using AirBNB for many years now, I have just listed for the first time. I bought my house back in 2015, and have spent the last 6 months completely renovating the small in-law cottage behind my house. While remodeling the space, I took inspiration from my stays in efficiency apartments across Europe and in the US, with the goal of blending those qualities with a Maine aesthetic and warmth. Otherwise, I'm happy to share my knowledge of Portland and of Maine with you. I'm very active on Yelp and would love to give you food and drink recommendations based on your likes and interests.

During your stay

I live in the house directly in front of the cottage, but will respect your privacy and let you enjoy Portland on your own. I travel quite a bit for work but I'm usually going to be around my house for at least part of your visit if you have any questions or concerns.
