We live in Maine (USA, EU), my family and I, having moved here from Rhode Island. We bought this 200 year old farmhouse, rewired it, replumbed it, and repainted it. We put a large, long covered porch on the back. But basically we left this old house to be as it was originally, with lots of rooms, stretched along its cape and ell. There's a fire that burns in the fireplace all winter long. As for me, I am an anthropologist and a writer and I spend many hours in my home office working. Luckily I have a wonderful view and the wildlife keeps me distracted, which is good. My family and I have lived in Mexico, and travel each summer to another country, or we return to Mexico to see all our friends. We try to go to Quebec City when we can, as it is only 4.5 hours from here. We speak Spanish and we are trying hard to learn French. We have stayed in Airbnb rooms throughout Ireland and soon throughout France. Our own Airbnb bedroom does not come with a cooked breakfast, but there is coffee made in the morning, tea is available and there are fresh muffins. There are eggs in the refrigerator and cereal for make-it-yourself dining, too. You can buy a small amount of groceries and find room on a shelf for them, if you want to make sandwiches or cook something simple for dinner, working around our use of the kitchen. We'd ask that you clean up after yourselves. Our house is quiet during the day, after the morning flurry, 7-7:30 am. Then there is some flurry from 5-8, then it is quiet again. Our beach makes for a wonderful walk, the fields for a ski if you are so inclined and when there is snow. We have a kayak and a canoe, if you want to go out, so long as it is not winter and the tide is right. Must wear a lifejacket, which we can provide for most sizes. Right now, as I write this, the tide is coming in, the sun is out and the water is sparkling, the lobster boats are gathering their traps.
