About this listing
This house is a calm, friendly launching pad for outdoor activities nearby and visits to the University of Maine, or trips to the coast, including Acadia National Park. Orono is a classic small Maine town, and this house is right at its heart.
Our house is right across from Webster Park in Orono, Maine, near the small downtown and within walking distance of the university. We have comfy beds, two woodstoves, and a few Maine Coons, and a medium-sized dog. All pets are friendly and affectionate ;-).
Make yourself at home in our comfy New England shingle cottage.
We are within walking distance of the UMaine campus and downtown Orono. Acadia, Baxter State Park, and Katadhin are nearby. In good weather, you can enjoy the sun in the riverside park across from our home. In winter, take our snowshoes and hit all the beautiful forest trails around Orono.

Guests can access the whole house, with the exception of our bedroom of course. We do our best to be accommodating!
Interaction with guests
Interaction depends on guests' inclination to be bothered/chat and our level of business. But we are always friendly and available for information and advice.
Other things to note
We do our very best to be attentive friendly hosts, but we both have full-time jobs and are not always able to respond to inquiries right away, though we'll do our very best.
Please do not 'drop by' without having confirmed a reservation. We live in a residential neighborhood, and are prevented by local code from having drop-ins.
We usually do not accept reservations for only one night.
