House Rules

We expect our guests to keep in mind and abide by the Golden Rule during their stay - in short, be respectful. Dogs (but not other pets) are more than welcome so long as they're cleaned up after, and get along with other dogs (like our neighbor's friendly dog). In the summer, please respect the gardens - some of us grow things on the sun-drenched hillside. Of course, we're happy to share fresh vegetables upon request.

Guests are expected to bring their own consumables such as laundry soap, shampoos, dish detergent and soap.

Our family of four just spent 5 days at the Knoll in East Stoneham and had a great time. Josh was a very helpful host and provided plenty of ideas about fun things to do with young children (7 and 10-yrs old) and a dog. We hiked in the nearby White Mountains and spent time exploring the two lakes near the property. We brought our bikes to ride and Josh provided two kayaks for lake fun. It rained one day and we had a great time working on a puzzle and playing board games. One night we also watched a dvd that we had brought. The house is as advertised, a typical Maine camp. Comfortable - furnished kitchen - working laundry facilities. Loved the view from the breakfast table. The house is not too remote, but its location up on the hill makes you feel removed from civilization, and allowed our dog to roam freely. We made one big stop at the Walmart in nearby Oxford (@20min away) for groceries on our way in so that we wouldn't have to spend any time driving for food. If you go hiking, however, there is great ice cream in Conway, NH and in Stowe, ME. Our family really enjoyed the time we spent on the Knoll and would return again.

Josh was a great host. We did not get to meet him personally as he was out of town, but we were in contact several times via e-mail, text and phone before and during the trip. The place was great and just as described. I would definitely stay again.

We had a lovely stay at Josh's country home in Maine. The house was exactly as advertised on the listing, and provided really gorgeous views. It's a very cute, rustic country home. It's definitely out there in the country, so be sure to stock up on groceries and such before heading there. We spent a long weekend in February at the house to do some skiing at Sunday River, which was quite convenient. It was only about a 25-30 minute trip to the mountain, and a very pretty drive. Josh's communication was absolutely fantastic, as he provided us with very detailed directions to the house, stayed in touch throughout our stay, and even came and plowed the driveway a few times since there was some heavy snowfall. He made us feel right at home and we knew we could contact him if we ever needed him (not that we ever did). Wonderful host and a great place for a true country escape!

When we arrived at the property Josh made sure everything was ok and if we needed anything! The place was cozy and a lot more specious then I thought it would be. I was traveling with coworkers and we were looking for something different then just a hotel like we're used to and this is it. It's very secluded and make sure you do your shopping before you make your way there as there is no grocery stores within 17 miles of the location except a little one that doesn't have all the things a actual grocery store has! During our stay Joshua was very accommodating when asked questions he at one point came by when we were out and left sand in the fire pit so we could have a s'mores night! He also was very attentive when asked about a fishing location he even left me a fishing pole to use! It's right near woods as well as you can see on pictures so if you get nervous or scared around all black and not being able to see at night this is not a place for you! Overall my coworkers and myself really enjoyed ourselves in the privacy and spacious place Josh offered and if ever in that area would consider his place!

We had an amazing time at Josh's place. The "cabin" was actually a much more spacious house than we anticipated and had all of the amenitities we needed for a weekend getaway. The location was remote, but that was what we were looking for. Josh and his family were nearby and incredibly helpful and we would love to come back for another visit. If you're looking for a true escape, you'll love this location!
