Hi! Welcome to our home on Magurrewock Mountain. Our house is conveniently located just off Route 1 but is surrounded by thousands of acres of woodland.

You can see Canada and the Moosehorn Wildlife Refuge from the deck chairs on the patio.

The AirBnB unit is in our finished daylight basement, which previously served as our guest bedroom and game room.

The AirBnB stays cool in the summer. It has its own thermostat and radiant floor heating so it stays nice and cozy all year round.

The space
The AirBnB has many windows and French doors facing south and west, so the unit has lots of natural light. The unit is carpeted, except the bathroom which is tile. The unit consists of one big room plus the bathroom. It has a new pillow top queen bed, another new queen bed, a sofa, loveseat, table, desk, chairs, tv, dorm fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee pot, and hot pot. Portable air beds with headboards are also available for your use if you need them, kept in the bathroom closet. The bathroom is a full bath.

Where you’ll be

Calais, Maine, United States

We are immediately adjacent to Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge. You can see the wetlands of Moosehorn, the St. Croix River, and Canada from our deck and patio. We often have wildlife in the yard, such as deer, snowshoe hares, and many species of birds. We are located about 3 miles from the center ofCalais and 3 border crossings into New Brunswick, Canada.

I am a wildlife biologist at Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge, which is located just a short distance from and within view of my house. I have 2 sons, Ethan and Owen, aged 16 and 15 years old. My wife, Zhiwei, is a law professor at a university in China, and presently she and her 7-year old son spend part of the year in China and part of the year with us in the U.S. We have 2 dogs, Baxter (yellow Labrador retriever) and Panda (corgi) who are very friendly and love to meet new people. Really, they insist upon meeting all of our guests, so if you don’t like dogs or are allergic to dogs, please be sure to let me know so I will walk them in a leash while you are here.

During your stay

I hope to greet you when you arrive, but I will try to give you your space after that. During the day you may see my boys, dogs, and us out in the yard. If I am home, feel free to come up and ask if you need assistance with anything or just want to chat. Cell phone service is spotty in this area but I get texts reliably and will try to respond to texts quickly.
