We live on a small farm in southern maine. 27 gorgeous acres to explore and all the fresh eggs and in seasonal veggies you can eat.
We have been very active in Couchsurfing International and have hosted people from all over the world and enjoy having others stay with us.
You can have as private a stay as you like or if you enjoy getting "in the thick of things", that is great as well.
2 people maximum and sorry, no pets.
We are in a rural location but close to Maine's largest city of Portland as well as Sebago Lake, Saco River and tons of walking/hiking trails.
