We are looking for a couple or a small family to enjoy our home for the month of September. Our gracious home is conveniently located steps from the Town Green & center with restaurants, shops, cafés and cinemas; a great public library and all amenities a town needs. A quick 5 min stroll to Bowdoin campus, our historic, completely modernized home is in a perfectly quiet location, surrounded by lush garden. You will feel immediately welcomed here, where happy colors, user-friendly interiors and gorgeous rugs set the tone for a relaxing at home experience. Shop your veggies at the local Farmer's Market on the town green, just a block away, or at Morning Glory, Brunswick's natural food store, and enjoy home-cooked meals in our fully equipped and user-friendly kitchen. The house is yours to enjoy, we just ask that you treat it as you would wish others to treat your own home. Shoes off, please. First floor: A great, social kitchen set-up with kitchen island as a gathering spot, open to the dining room. Living room is warm and cozy and has an easy to turn on and off gas Jøtul stove. On 1st floor is also where you find our bright, morning sun reading room which also has a flat-screen TV with basic cable (also Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, etc. ready), as well as the first study/office: a large, airy space with a beautifully crafted and expansive desk. There is also a full bathroom on this floor. Second floor: Master bedroom suite with a private master bathroom, and a second large and sunny bedroom, with an additional full bath in the hallway next to it. Third floor: A third bedroom with a twin trundle day-bed, a room I sometimes use for yoga. There is also a marvelous second study/office on the 3rd floor. All bedding, sheets and towels provided for an easy stay. Excellent wifi included, gas and electric is not included. We can give you estimated averages for utilities. Re. regular cleanings: We ask that our renters continue using our cleaning woman who comes every other week and is paid $75 in cash for 3 hrs. She knows the house well, and does a good, general cleaning (but no laundry). Our home is located in a residential neighborhood with super friendly neighbors all around who know each other and help each other out. The residents here love the proximity to everything convenient in town, the awesomeness of the surroundings and the diversity of our neighbors, young and old. Getting around is easy: By foot is best and so convenient! Bike or drive to Harpswell, Orr and Bailey's Islands, LL Bean's in Freeport is just a 10-minute drive, and fabulous Portland with tons of cultural offerings as well as airport is 25 minutes away. Colby College is 1 hr away and Bates College is 30 min, Portland is 35 min. We are quite selective when it comes to whom we rent out our home, so send us an email inquiry telling us about yourself and what brings you to the area. If it seems like a good fit, we like to either plan a Zoom or FaceTime meeting, or an actual visit, if at all possible. We will use a written contract so that both parties can feel secure in the rental agreement, which will include first month's rent upon signing, as well as a security deposit refundable within 1 month after departure, pending that all is in order.
