All you need to bring are your clothes and your computer! You will find everything else you need!

Two blocks from the Bowdoin campus, this easy and gracious living will make for a memorable stay in Maine! Completely new apartment over two levels, the home is located in the quiet barn off our main house, set back from the street and surrounded by lush gardens. Downstairs, the open kitchen, dining and living room is warm, inviting and practical, and the kitchen is fully equipped, including ALL cooking essentials. There's also a half bath on the first floor in addition to the full one on the second floor.

Upstairs, a large & expansive bedroom under a glorious gabled ceiling with a suspended canoe light fixture, and it includes ample closet space, a desk (with printer) and reading nook, as well as a full bath with washer and dryer. Beautiful colors, textiles and rugs enhance the space throughout. Towels, linen bed sheets and cozy duvet are all included.

Special treats: Bathroom floors have radiant heat, and the kitchen has a Bluetooth speaker system with docking and charging stations for iPhones and iPads, etc.

The speed of the wifi is excellent and reliable, and there is a TV with a wifi DVD box, which means you can access your Netflix & streaming subscriptions etc. (but no regular cable TV). We also have many great films on DVDs.

Walk to campus and downtown in minutes (literally at the end of our street) get your local produce at the farmer's market on the town green one block away, every Tue & Fri during the season. Movies, restaurants, post office, groceries and cafes all within walking distance.

1hr from Colby, 30 min to Bates, 25 minutes to Portland, which has airport, Amtrak and bus. Express bus from Brunswick and Portland (every hour!) to Boston's Logan Airport.

With regard to car: if we are out of the country when you rent, we can definitely talk about the availability of one of our cars.


Re. regular cleanings: We ask that our long-term renters keep our cleaning woman, a mature and experienced woman who knows the house, who comes once every other week and does a good, general cleaning for $40 cash.

About Me
Born and raised in Oslo, Norway, I have lived in the US for the past 30+ years. Here, I have raised three sons, am now an empty nester and have recently moved to the beautiful state of Maine to join my partner who is a retired professor in languages and literatures. My research and writing focuses on Jews from Islamic Lands, and Francophone women writers from North Africa more specifically. However, now I am going for an MFA in creative writing, and my next projects are a memoir and a novel.
