I am originally from Massachusetts. I have always loved Maine, no matter what season. We always had a vacation home in Bridgton Maine and when I moved back from Florida, I choose to find a home in Maine for myself, my horses and my dogs. I grew up skiing at Shawnee Peak which used to be called Pleasant Mountain. The best part I am only 2.5 hours from Boston, MA when I need a little bit of city life.
I found a home that was over 200+ years with pastures and a barn. After 10 years of remodeling, which included actually moving the house back further into the fields, I think I am almost done. We have blended old and new and I am quite pleased with the end result.
The Bungalow Cottage stands where the original part of my home used to be located until 2010.
We opened our house up to guests just about one year ago and have loved every second of it. Never dreamed we would get so busy so fast. From June last year till about the first week of November we were just about solidly booked and loved every second of it, meeting so many great people from the USA, Canada and Europe.
This is our first true winter being open full time to guests and we are hoping for a great winter ski and snowboard season.
As a professional Home Energy Auditor since 2004, making this old and new home energy efficient was our first priority and we definitely succeeded there. If any of you need a Home Energy Audit in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and of course Maine look me up under Energy Audit Me (energyauditme).
Being an animal owner and lover "forever" it was important to me that guests had a place to bring their dog and their best friend. We are very pet friendly (dogs only).
