Interaction with Guests
We are happy to assist you (as much or as little as you like) with travel information during your stay, from the best dining options to cool out-of-the-way and authentically Maine destinations.
1 block from all Maine Street shops and restaurants, 5-10 minute walk to Amtrak and all Bowdoin College attractions. 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 as well.
There is a public transit bus stop directly across the street. Good supermarket and Brunswick Transportation Center (with bus and train connections) are a five minute walk away. Freeport is 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 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.
Absolutely no smoking, no pets. Check-in between 2-8 pm is preferred, but with adequate advance notice we are happy to provide earlier check-in (when possible) as well as after-hours self-access.
I am a professional classical musician and my husband Henry works as a manager at Bowdoin College. We are former restaurant owners here in Brunswick and can give you excellent guidance with dining and recreation options in the region.
