Hi, I'm Melanie, an AirBnB Superhost originally from Lambertville NJ (see Secret Garden).
For years I've had a dream to host guests in some beautiful distant locale.
And that dream came true this year as I proudly open the Cracked Mug, a 4-bedroom BnB in the heart of the island village on Monhegan, an unbridged island 12 miles out to sea off of Midcoast Maine.

Welcome to Monhegan Island's newest waterview guesthouse!

The space
SPECIAL GIFT:
If you book 3 or more nights, then we'll give you, free of charge, your own DIY Guide for Maine ( everything you need to book your own vacation, compliments of Rare Finds Travel) so you augment your Monhegan stay with more nights on the mainland (DIY Guide includes our favorite "rare finds" from Acadia to Kennebunkport) and create a full weeklong vacation.

IS THIS ROOM BOOKED FOR YOUR PREFERRED DATES?
We've got 4 rooms at the Cracked Mug, so if this room is booked for your dates, maybe one of the our other 3 will work? Check here:

MORE ABOUT THE CRACKED MUG:
The Kitchen is the heart of our home at the Cracked Mug!
I love to cook and it's fun to share my creations with my guests.
One special treat is our Signature Sweet - my Mother's French Coffee Cake. This recipe - a soft sour cream cake with a dark chocolate and cinnamon swirl - goes back more than 6 decades to my Dad's navy days. It's always out, so help yourself to a slice anytime you like.

We are BED serious at the Cracked Mug.
Choose one of our four guest rooms at the Cracked Mug.
Two have Queen beds, and the other two each have 2 Twins. But they're all made up with delicious Eucalyptus bedding (Eucalyptus is the new Egyptian cotton, they say)

As is typical for island life, guests share the 1 1/2 baths, plus a gorgeous water view outdoor shower!

You'll have wifi access, but we encourage you to put your devices in your bedroom's lockbox and see what happens when your brain gets to unplug.

The Cracked Mug is right in the heart of Monhegan village, so galleries and shops are mere steps away. We're also around the corner from the famous novelty, just down the hill from the brewery, and the Fish House is our backdoor neighbor.

Stay at the Cracked Mug and you'll have the MOST convenient home base for your island adventure.

I'm a 57-year-old founder of a travel design service called Rare Finds Travel. I plan unique trips for adventurous travelers -- think treehouses and 5* cave hotels, truffle hunting and swimming with 25' mantas and you've got the right idea. I have 4 grown sons, living from Nepal to Santa Barbara, and I currently live in an historic home on the canal in Lambertville NJ with my K9 Patrick. I love the outdoors and all things on or near the water! I am a huge Foodie - if it doesn't walk off my plate, I eat it! And I love to read - especially memoirs, travel stories, and history. I enjoy hosting. It feels great to welcome folks into my town and point them in the direction of my favorite hikes, introduce them to my restauranteur friends. I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to my rivertown, Lambertville!
