Carol and Dick were amazing host. Their genuine, fun and kind nature displayed their true "salt of the earth" hospitality. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the front porch together soaking up the natural beauties surrounding us. We couldn't have enjoyed our time more in this little slice of heaven.
Both the house and the proprietor are most charming. Will definitely be returning.

About the Host, Carol
Moving to Maine, back to the family farm, has been an amazing experience as we share a rekindling for a simpler life and a more sacred existence. Our replenishing the ground to rebuild our environment as we cultivate medicinal herbs has been a reconnection to a simple and elegant purpose. Our 5 grandchildren and grown children are our life's loves and we travel to see them all. The farm has daily eggs from our ducks and chickens, fresh vegetables and herbs and two beautiful draft ponies named after the women who lived her 180 years ago, my husband's ancestors. We use Home Exchange to travel on occasion when we are not visiting our family and have been to many wonderful places. We love the cultural and creative events here in Brooksville and love to cook in as we but our food directly from our farmers so the quality challenges the best we have had in France! Naturally, a rural life is full of movies and reading and we participate in many local activities from US First robotics, teaching at the Maine Maritime , writing and working of film.
We genuinely enjoy our wonderful guests and can say they have all enriched our lives.
Our lives are full and in turn we try to stay on our path to renew this farm and have a sacred life, close to nature and the people we love.
