I’m a native Virginian meaning I’m “from away” as they say in Maine, but I spend a good part of the year in Tenants Harbor. I tell people I’m not from Maine, but I got here as fast as I could!
My idea of running an AirBnB is simple: keep the rooms clean, the beds comfortable, the prices reasonable, be friendly, provide a wealth of area knowledge and genuinely care about your guest's experience.
The Mid-Coast of Maine is a wonderful, fun and spectacular area and I love sharing it and providing hospitality and an authentic Maine experience to my guests and friends! Welcome to Maine, the way life should be!
