The Neighborhood

We are situated in the historic Brunswick Northwest Neighborhood where you can stroll among the stately homes built in the mid to late 1800's, many with beautiful grounds and gardens. Quick access to the Androscoggin River walking/biking trail.

Getting around

There is a public transit bus stop directly across the street. Good supermarket and Brunswick Transportation Center (with bus and train connections) are a 5-10 minute walk away. Freeport is only 10 minutes south by car, Portland 20, and Brunswick is situated at the entry to the coastal route north for Bath, Wiscasset, Boothbay Harbor, Rockland and all destinations beyond.

Other Things to Note

In the summer/fall, there is an excellent weekly farmer's market on the Brunswick Mall downtown. Off season, a popular "winter market" is held on weekends in the refurbished Cabot Mill (10 minute walk). Brunswick has two art movie houses, one in the mill and one downtown, as well as a multiplex theater 2 miles away at the Cook's Corner Mall. The very fine Bowdoin Museum of Art is open year-round and free of charge. In the summer, the Maine State Music Theatre and Bowdoin International Music Festival present first-rate popular and classical entertainment.

  • Martin's home is very conveniently located in Brunswick, next to the main street and very central if you are considering traveling around in Maine. We took 3 hours to reach here from Boston and were able to do onward journey to Acadia National Park and come back the same day. The location is almost central with Old Port and Portland 45 minutes away and Acadia about 2 hours away.

    The house is an independent unit which makes great sense and is full with all amenities. The kitchen is equipped and Martin also provided complementary fruits, milk, tea, etc. We were five of us and stayed very comfortably between the two large rooms. We would definitely return to Martin's place if we come back to Maine.

  • This is what AirBnB is for! A lovely home in a real neighborhood with wonderful hosts. An apartment that gives you privacy and the option to eat in and pack lunches. Easy stroll to Main Street in Brunswick yet quiet. Convenient for many locations in Maine. Tasty and tasteful set of starter items in the kitchen. A great find and choice.

  • Great place to stay at! Everything was hassle free and the hosts were most excellent!

  • we're frequent travelers and found this to be a perfect property for a weekend or extended stay for a couple. much better arrangement than a hotel and reasonably priced. large bedroom, large sitting room, nice size bath and adequate light cooking and dining space. refrigerator and larder stocked with food essentials to start each day. only a two block walk to the shops and restaurants on Brunswick's main street, with a nearby wine store and a major grocery. Brunswick itself is easily accessible from route 95 and close to Portland and other Maine vacation sites.

    everyone in town knew our delightful hosts, two well known and respected local business people. martin met us at the door, reviewed the property and amenities, and stayed in touch from start to finish.

    would highly recommend the owners, property and town.

  • What a treat to be able to stay in this beautifully appointed, immaculate, comfortable, quiet, charming apartment. Marty is the perfect host: communication was straightforward and quick, everything about the apartment was as described, and I felt that I could have asked for anything--if I had needed anything other than what was so generously provided (a fridge with an assortment of breakfast items, information about restaurants in town, etc.). Everything about this experience was positive!

  • Perfect in Every way.
    Our first time AirBnB stay could not have been better: ideal location for exploring the ME coast, in a private cozy suite/apt with friendly and welcoming hosts.
    Not only were Marty and Henry warm and welcoming, they were also full of great tips about traveling the coast of ME; respectful of our privacy and there whenever we needed them, their suggestions really made for a memorable trip.
    We did not want to leave!

  • If I could give Martin & Henry 6 stars I would! The apartment was beautiful and extremely comfortable. Without a doubt the BEST accommodations in Brunswick!

    November 2013
  • This separate apartment in a wonderful historic home was clean and charming and spacious! The kitchenette was perfect and the beds were comfy. It is an ideal location for any Bowdoin families who are visiting campus and it is walking distance to the town. Martin was very accommodating and friendly; would definitely return!
