A great place for those who enjoy outdoor activities in a quiet, scenic location.

Interaction with Guests
As much as they want us to. Some guests come to visit while others we never meet. We don't intrude on guests who come for the peace and quiet.
Beautiful scenery, quiet roadways that are great for biking, and the abundance of outdoor things to do.
Guests will need their own transportation. Pickups at airports and train/bus stations can be arranged.
We just ask that guests leave the premises in basically the same condition that they found it. Pet owners are expected to pick up after their dogs. No smoking indoors. The state of Maine requires we charge 8% rooms tax. The tax is not included in the Airbnb rate and will have to be collected directly from guests. There is an additional charge of $ 20 per night for each additional bed used.
The cabin was everything we hoped it would be and more. It was clean, cozy, and inviting. The kitchen was well-equipped with everything we needed to make our meals, and the gas grill on the back deck was awesome. We loved the deck overlook, the gas fireplace, the secluded setting, the decor, etc. We only used the upstairs since it was just the two of us, but the cabin would easily fit a larger family. The location, just over the NH/ME border in ME, was perfect for us. We loved the drive from the cabin to North Conway. Although the cabin wasn't right in town, it WAS secluded and that was what we were after in our weekend getaway. We were close enough to town to go there for a visit, but we were far enough away to feel like we were really getting away from it all. We hope to go back soon!
Hi Jennifer and Tyler,
Thank you for that glowing review. Glad you enjoyed our cabin. We have friends and family coming up this weekend from New York and they always want to stay in the cabin, I guess for the same reasons you liked it. Hope to see you (and Gigi) again
We were looking for a quiet, rural area and we found it! It is a bit off the beaten path but we were able to enjoy the Kangamangus highway and North Conway. The cabin is very spacious and clean. We had a relaxed, fun weekend. My boyfriend loved the fire pit. My only complaint was the grill was unusable - very rusty.
Kevin and Theresa's Brookside cabin was beautiful; the photos do not do the place justice. We stayed for a couple of nights over a holiday weekend and greatly enjoyed ourselves. Did not get a chance to meet Kevin, but Theresa was kind and welcoming, with great recommendations for places to eat and swim. Would happily return for another getaway.
We used the cabin as "home base" for a birthday weekend full of outdoor activities & fun, our main goal being a Mt. Washington hike. We snowshoed around the property and had a fire in the backyard. It was early April & everything was starting to thaw, but was very beautiful in a special way! The cabin itself was clean & felt fresh despite its "rustic" appearance. The cabin is a newer construction & you can tell that extreme care went into all the detail, keeping the exposed wood look, but making it modern, warm, comfy & efficient. It was a cozy haven after our trek up the mountain! Kevin was friendly, helpful, prompt and easy to get ahold of, always a phone call away from the land line of the cabin. I would definitely come back!

We are native New Yorkers who moved to New England in the early '70's and love the tranquility and space our farm affords.We have been hosting guests for over 25 years now - first in our bed and breakfast home and then renovated a small cottage and finally built a log cabin to accommodate the larger number of guests coming to the area . We enjoy the seasonal changes and are extremely active in the outdoors -- biking, hiking, snowshoeing, canoeing. horseback riding -- so we can provide great information about those activities for our guests. Also own a sailboat on which we've sailed to the Caribbean and all along the east coast of US. Theresa is licensed massage therapist, Rieki and esoteric healing practitioner and many guests avail themselves of her skills. We love to travel and usually head to warmer climates during the winter months while others look after our property. Our destinations have included Africa, Thailand, Argentina, Peru, Chile and Venezuela and others. We enjoying relating our travel experiences to our guests and hearing about theirs -indeed we have traveled to several locations based on the recommendations of our guests.
