Thurston and Nancy were the most gracious, fun, warm, generous, and all around fantastic hosts imaginable. We had such a good time staying with them we didn't want to leave. The two rooms we stayed in (one for my husband and me, one for our teenage daughter) were charming, clean and comfortable, and our private bathroom came stocked with toiletries and was also sparkling clean. The house itself was gorgeous - spacious and light-filled, with a wrap-around deck and, in the back yard, a hot tub that we used every night, soaking under the stars. Our hosts cooked huge and delicious breakfasts (blueberry pancakes, eggs Benedict) for us every morning, had coffee ready when we got up, and gave us excellent recommendations about things to see and do. Portland was an easy and short drive away, so not staying downtown turned out to be no problem at all. Nancy and Thurston gave us privacy when we needed it and were available to chat when we wanted that. They made us feel comfortable and welcome in every way. We can't recommend this listing highly enough!
Nancy and Thurston are the ultimate hosts. We had a fantastic time staying with them in their beautiful home. As soon as we arrived, they immediately made us feel comfortable and welcome. They offered maps, brochures, suggestions and even provided us with a list of must-see spots and favourite restaurants in Portland.
Our room and private bathroom were clean, cozy, well-equipped, and quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed the delicious breakfasts each morning, including fantastic Eggs Benedict, and probably the most delicious blueberry and banana-nut pancakes we've ever had - with all of the trimmings. We ended up spending more time with Nancy and Thurston than we had anticipated, because we enjoyed their company so much! They are the warmest, kindest, most easygoing hosts you could imagine, and their property is beautiful. Our dog Otis just adored them, and had a blast on the trail near their house, and scouring the property for chipmunks.
We were sad to say goodbye, and we will certainly be back to this wonderful spot.
Nancy and Thurston are amazing hosts and we had such a great time at their house for Memorial Day weekend! They made us feel comfortable right away. Their house is beautiful and the two rooms and bathroom offer a lot of privacy. They made us delicious breakfast (don't miss out on the blueberry pancakes) and gave us great recommendations for things to do in the area. The hot tub is wonderful!!!! We'd definitely love to go back.
Nancy and Thurston were very nice, helpful and accommodating hosts ! The house is really beautiful and warm, the breakfasts are delicious. Thank you to both of you, we were very happy of our stay in Maine, we will come back !
We had a great time staying with Nancy and Thurston. They were very friendly and welcoming and make awesome breakfasts. The house is gorgeous and the hot tub is fantastic too. We can't wait to go back again!
Nancy and her husband, Thurston, were great hosts! They were extremely welcoming, hospitable and made a killer pancake breakfast. I highly recommend the fireplace and hot tub!
We had a great time at Nancy and Thurston's place. They were wonderful hosts and we made good use of everything! The hot tub is a MUST. I know I'll be back again with other friends and family. highly recommended!
Nancy and her husband were fantastic hosts, given our timing with travel. My friends and I were there for the Portland Maine Half Marathon and arrived later than expected. I never got the chance to meet them, but I can tell that they're very warm and welcoming people just from staying in their GORGEOUS home!
Their place felt very comfortable and inviting. Our stay was very brief, but I recommend anyone to stay with them. Plus, their place is only 20 minutes away from downtown Portland!
They even offered to make us Blueberry Pancakes the next morning, which I'm bummed that we didn't get to experience, but I love that they didn't mind looking out for us! It felt like a weekend with the family!
If you're ever visiting Portland, Maine, stay with them! Totally Worth it!
My girlfriend and I had a great experience staying at Nancy and Thurston's home. They were really friendly and accomadaying. The highlights were the hot tub, breakfast, and talking to Thurston about his photography career. Would definitely come for another visit. -Mike
