Interaction with Guests
We might be able to greet you when you arrive and can definitely be in touch during your stay via phone/text.
We live in a wonderful neighborhood. It is quite, just a couple of minutes from downtown Brunswick, Bowdoin campus and the train/bus station. Our neighbors are very friendly and it is a very safe neighborhood. There are woods trails nearby and it is a great jumping off point for getting to the beach and great outdoors or outlet shopping and Portland.
We are a 12 minute walk from the train/bus station. Parking is included at our house. Two cars can fit in the driveway and street parking is also available. You can get a bus or train from Portland if you are arriving by train, bus or plane.
Other Things to Note
We have an organic veggie garden in our front and back yards which guests would have access to during their stay. Our gardens include high bush blueberries, peaches, veggies and herbs. We also have a chicken run attached to the back of our garage with 8 lovely ladies in residence. You would be welcome to collect the eggs or we can have our neighbors do it.
We are a very kid friendly house, with lots of kids toys, a crib and a high chair that could all be available upon request.
We would consider a dog upon request with further discussion

Eli was super easy to work with on scheduling and was proactive in reaching out ahead of our stay to figure out what bedding etc we needed. Her place is a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle. If you want a few days of peace and quiet, this place has it.
Overall the experience was very good. We had a little confusion getting into the house but after that it went very well. The house was in a great location for our needs. We could walk to downtown Brunswick. Nice, quiet street. Pretty town. The house was clean and comfortable. Large bathroom. Appreciated the labels on various drawers and doors. If you are tall the upstairs bedroom ceiling can be challenging.
Eli was very helpful and friendly. She was kind enough to let us stay in her home while she was away for the weekend. The house is clean and that was all we needed. I think we learned a thing or two during our stay there, by living a more simple and eco-friendly life. There's no tv, but that just meant more quality time with family. My dog Remy had so much fun running around the big yard and hanging out on the hammock. Thanks Eli for your hospitality! :)
