Avoid the crazy parking and noise of Portland and stay just over the border in Westbrook in our peaceful residential home. It's an easy hop on the freeway to LL Bean 20 minutes away. Or perhaps you'd like to hit the beaches - you have your choice of several within a 25 minute drive. You'll find two groceries stores within a mile and many restaurant options nearby.
Your favorite parts of the house will be the comfy beds, the sunny rooms, the awesome back deck for morning coffee and evening wine and entertaining, spacious bathroom with great shower head and unlimited hot water, shiny hardware floors, crown molding, and quiet residential street.
You'll also enjoy the Ikea kitchen and bathroom, teak dining room set, Crate & Barrel living room couch, and, for chilly fall & winter nights, a gas-fired fireplace. In summer, enjoy the fire pit with 5 Adirondack chairs out back.
We have provided many kitchen appliances - rice cooker, Ninja blender, food processor, ice tea maker, large slow cooker, waffle iron, toaster oven, 12-cup auto drip coffee maker with filters, French Press, and even a fondue set. And of course, the kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, gadgets, utensils, sheet trays, and lots more. If you like to cook, you'll enjoy the kitchen and being able to cook dinner and watch the news at the same time on the 26" TV.
Enjoy reliable WiFi and a 42" TV with Apple TV with basic channels in the sun room, which is a favorite room in the house. It's a cozy space to relax and play board games. PLEASE NOTE: there is no cable TV at this home and we do not have TV's in the bedrooms. We offer the basic channels - NBC, CBS, and ABC - on our two TV's, so if watching cable in your bedroom on your vacation is important to you, this may not be the right home for you.
The crème de la crème is the back yard. You'll love to put your feet up and lounge on the back deck. And don't forget the gas grill for dining al fresco. If you like flowers, there is a full perennial garden out back. Whatever you choose, the air is fresh, and life is good!
We have put a lot of thought into making this house feel like a home for our guests with much of the house having been updated. If you have an appreciation for the European way (quality, simplicity, design), this is a nice place to rest while in town.
You'll enjoy parking in the driveway and not having to worry about living in the city where street parking is no fun. You'll also love the neighborhood - it's so quiet and safe on the dead-end street, and the neighbors are very friendly.
The airport and bus stations are also very close by. About 10 minutes, each, by taxi.
You will note that the house sleeps 5, even through we say it sleeps 4. This is because most parties that book our house are 4 or less, and with the new Best Match system, we must appeal to most. But we do have a small 3rd bedroom with a futon, which is perfect for a couple of small children, a teen, or a 5th adult who doesn't mind the smaller space. Keep in mind there is only 1 bathroom, so if you are staying for an extended trip, you may want a larger space than what we can offer.
Providing you with responsive, reliable, and friendly service is what we're all about. I'm the owner and my very handy partner is Mike. He fixes anything that goes wrong and mows the lawn, while I make sure that the house is clean and comfortable.
