Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Meg and Mark are great hosts, very laid back and welcoming and uncomplicated and all the things I like in fellow human beings. They were kind enough to invite me to share dinner with them, over which we had a great conversation over shoemaking, gun laws, travel and goat milk, among others!
    Their dogs are sweet and very well-behaved, and are kept away from guest rooms, so it's not an issue for people not used to interact with pets. They have a beautiful house, very nicely restored and comfortable, and very quiet, guaranteeing a peaceful night. Warmly recommended.

    Response from Meg:

    Anytime Thomas! Fabulous to meet you as well :)

  • I had a great time with Meg and Mark. Their home is warm and comfortable. The dogs super sweet. It was kind of like visiting cousins, you didn't know you had. They were very welcoming, and the bed was comfy. Thanks very much. Laurine:)

    Response from Meg:

    Laurine, you are the best! Thanks so much for trying out AirBnB, we were so glad you stopped by and hope to see you again!

    June 2014
  • Lovely stay with kind hosts. Bonus points for the breakfast of farm fresh eggs!

    April 2014
  • We contacted Meg on short notice and she responded quickly. We loved their cozy, attractive home and the very warm and cozy bed since it was so cold outside. While there we found out our flight had been canceled and Meg spent much time and effort helping us figure out plan B. We appreciate people like Mark and Meg that are warm, friendly and real. We highly recommend them and their home.

  • An utterly charming AirBNB experience. Meg, Mark, their kids, friends, and pets made for a welcoming, lively atmosphere. They were totally open to sit and chat with me, or allow me to retreat to the room for some solitary quiet time. I got the sense that this family lives the good life and loves sharing it. They were totally accommodating with some challenging weather altering my travel plans, and the room is as clean and cozy as it appears. Hope to return if I'm back in the area and see more of the farm when it's not under a blanket of snow.

    January 2014
  • Our stay at Meg's was great! Although our stay was short, Meg made sure we had everything we needed and offered suggestions on things to see in the limited time we had. She was kind enough to offer us coffee and breakfast in the morning as well. Would definitely come back when visiting the area again.

    December 2013
  • It took me awhile to review Meg again but don't take that as a bad sign, I love, love, LOVE coming up with my wife and we look forward to doing it again!

    November 2013
  • Bucolic and clean air!

    September 2013
  • This place was just lovely, easy to get to, I felt like I was home. Meg (email hidden) and very kind. She had tons of information about the area and things to do. Great time would love to come back one day.

    September 2013
  • A beautiful place in a beautiful location, close to downtown and very convenient to get to. We enjoyed ourselves very much and were impressed by how cozy and well kept the house was. Thanks Meg, for a wonderful time!

    Response from Meg:

    You are so very welcome! Lovely to have you both here :)

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 (website hidden) 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.
