The Space

EUREKA is an alternative-style guest house. We bring together the arts, nature, and off-the-beaten-path experiences. We have clean, comfortable guest rooms, a 1200 square foot dance studio, a kitchen, nature trails, and other amenities like an outdoor shower. The retreat is located in a peaceful, authentic rural Maine town a comfortable distance from the touristy areas. The retreat was created and is managed by world renown juggler and touring artist Michael Menes.

Guest Access

Guests have access to kitchen facilities, laundry, barbecue, outdoor shower, wifi, and our dance studio.

Interaction with Guests

We try to create an environment in which our guests feel at ease. We are a respectful, friendly couple, enjoying the peaceful surroundings of our retreat. We understand when our guests prefer to be quiet or, at other times, to have polite conversation.

The Neighborhood

We are surrounded by farms, forests, beautiful lakes and lots of fresh air away from the touristy areas, yet not too far from some of the most picturesque destinations in Maine. We are part of a vibrant creative community and a base for exploring off-the-beaten-path adventures. Depending on the season, there are many interesting, down-to-earth, inspiring things to see and do in the area. We recommend the less explored authentic treasures that are often hidden from the typical tourist attractions. Some of these include nearby Celebration Barn Theater, Jack's Greenhouse, Nezinscot Farm, Cooper Spring and Historic Paris Hill.

Getting Around

There is no public transportation in our town. You will need a car to get around. We are approximately 1 hour from Portland International Jetport (PWM).

Other Things to Note

- We offer clean sheets and clean towels.
- It is very safe and secure where we are located so you shouldn’t have any problem getting locked in or locked out.
- We keep a good supply of fresh drinking water from a natural spring which pushes up from deep under a mountain just a few miles away. (Cooper Spring).
- Our guest bathroom is very new and very clean, however, in the summer we highly recommend taking a morning shower outside in our very private outdoor shower. Ask us to lend you a robe. It’s very spa-like. You won’t be sorry!
- Don't confuse BUCKFIELD with BUCKSPORT! We are located in BUCKFIELD which is sometimes confused with BUCKSPORT. The later is a town along the coast of Maine. We are located in Oxford County which is an hour inland.
- Our private home is not regulated by the State of Maine Department of Health and Human Services and the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
