Portland's 'close in' locations, mean Train horns! Some people love them, some people need earplugs (bring them) on Summer nights when they open the windows. :-)
We are quiet after 11pm. You may come and go as you like as long as you are quietly, respectful after hours.
Please no red wine in the rooms, I have light carpets and somehow, someone always spills a glass!
If you use bleaching products as part of your cosmetics, please let me know so I can give you white towels. :)
Check with me about parking--my neighbor on the west prefers we don't park in front of his house.
Lucinda was a great host for my father, who came to visit me from Maine for the weekend. He said he enjoyed the comfortable house, the lovely neighborhood, and the nice hosts. He said he would stay there again when he comes back to Portland! Much thanks to Lucinda for making his stay fun and confortable.
I had a wonderful stay here! Lucinda's home is warm and welcoming and it is in an ideal location- very close to Division Street restaurants and coffee shops and it is within walking distance to the major bus lines. Great experience!
Had a great time staying at Lucinda's lovely house. It's clean, quiet, and in an awesome location. We had no problems getting around and finding parking, and it's literally close to everything.
Lucinda herself is wonderful, and she gave us some really interesting background on Portland. She really went above and beyond in providing necessities for her lodgers!
Lucinda was very warm and welcoming. She gave us a ride from the airport and drove us through Portland, showing us parts we otherwise weren't able to see and explaining things we otherwise would not have known about Portland. Her home was definitely lovely, she changed the sheets and made the bed for us before we came. It took us less than 10 minutes to take the bus to downtown, the bus came fairly often, and the stop was only a few minutes to walk to. The location was great, a lot of cool stores and plenty of places to eat/drink.
Thanks for opening your home up to us Lucinda!

About the Host, Lucinda
I'm a friendly, direct person. I like people. I've always lived with roommates, even when married. I have a lovely home and garden, where I can be found most days! I am a Licensed Massage Therapist for 25 years and have a Private Massage Studio on sight! Both of my sons and their wives, have homes close by. I walk my young son's dog, Taz, in the afternoon or we go to a dog park for some socializing. During the summer, I like to ride my bike through the neighborhood. In the evening, I love to take a picnic for Portland Music in the Parks.
