We built this home away from home to get away from our busy lives in CT and enjoy all of what 'Vacationland' has to offer. Relax and enjoy the beautiful outdoors of Maine. This house and property has truly been our labor of love. We are happy to share it with you!

Linda purchased this house in 2008

We picked the sleepy town of Brownfield Maine to build our 3,000 square foot cottage because of the easy access to everything we might like to do including: the arts (music, local artists, craftsmen etc) including Stone Mountain arts Center. Hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, kayaking, and boating. Less then 1 hour to old Orchard Beach, or Freeport. Shopping and great restaurants of all types. Nearly (20) Ski resorts within an hour drive. Snowmobile and snowshoe trail access directly across the street.

Just about everything you would want to do from minutes to max 1 hour away.

We fell in love with the beautiful park like setting, to build our home. The ever changing Saco river is mesmerizing. We have the only peninsula on the river which we go to often and sit on our swing. It feels like a golden pond. Being so close to the river allows us to witness nature in all her beauty. To see turkeys, eagles, ducks, and deer. Are all part of the beauty of this place. A small piece of heaven.

This home is loved by its owner and it shows!

My family (4 adults, two young children) stayed here for a week and the house was a huge hit. The house is well appointed with hidden surprises at every corner. My five year old was physically shaking with excitement and not-so-secretly so was I.

The owner ensured that the house would be configured specifically for us (baby gates, crib, child proof outlets and age appropriate toys). The kids especially loved the tree swing and roasting marshmallows


Directly across the street is a public playground and within a short driving distance public beaches suitable for swimming.

Brownfield is strategically placed as it is an hour away from: Portland, Freeport and the White Mountains. We stayed for a week and could have easily stayed for the entire summer.

If you like cooking, The kitchen is packed with gadgets and utensils. nearby farms and markets offer fresh produce.

Thank you for sharing your home. We will be planning a return visit

Owner's Response: Dear Shannon
Thank you for the wonderful comment about our rivers edge cottage.
We have been busy since your visit finishing off the basement rec room.
We had a local artist paint a mural on the wall of the sunset in the forest. It should really set a relaxing mood while folks enjoy the rec room.
We hope you will return to our rivers edge cottage and that each time will be more enjoyable then the next.
Sincerely
Linda

DELIGHTFUL!

  • 5 of 5
Our snowshoe trip conveniently came the day after the area got a foot of snow, so we had a wonderful time tromping around the property and then offsite as well. As far as the house is concerned, we enjoyed the music system, the fireplace, the kitchen and the showers! It's a beautiful house and we all felt so comfortable spending our time there. We wouldn't hesitate to return. And special thanks to Linda for all of the snowshoeing info!

YOU WILL NOT WANT TO LEAVE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I usually rent a house each summer and each winter, so we have visited well over a dozen homes. This was, by far, our favorite.

Having rented some real duds, I tend to ask a lot of questions. The owner, Linda, was very patient and helpful while we made our decision. Arriving at the house, we were greeted by the caretaker, David, who could not have been more welcoming. He showed us around the house and gave us information about both the property and the area. One morning after a small snow storm, we went out to leave for the day and found that David had not only cleared the drive and walkways but had even cleaned off our car!

The house itself is just as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. In addition, it was very clean, neat, and organized. There is a fireplace in the great room and huge windows looking out onto the property which is beautiful. We spent hours playing pool and air hockey. There are lots of board games as well, including Sneaky Snacky Squirrel, which you will know if you have a toddler in your life. We usually travel with a portable Bose dock and a Roku for movies. There was no need here. When they say they supply Netflix, they mean it. You don’t even have to have your own account.

We love to hike and snowshoe, so we were pleased to find a small day hike just a few minutes away: Burnt Meadow Mountain. Not too far are also Moat Mountain off the Kank and Kearsarge North just outside of North Conway. You can also snowshoe all around the property itself.

It’s hard to put into words just how special this home is. It’s one of those places where your stress just melts away. If Linda will have us, we will definitely be back.

WINTER WONDERLAND

Again our stay was breathtaking and beautiful! It snowed everyday. The view from the kitchen sink window was so beautiful I didn't even mind doing the dishes. Just an absolutely perfect peaceful long weekend. The house, as always, was clean, homey, and inviting. Thank you again for sharing your house with us. Can't wait to go back!
