About Linda

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

Why Linda chose Western Maine

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Family paradise

  • 5 of 5

We, two families with six kids ranging from 5 to 14, stayed here for 4 nights on our way to Bar Harbor.

This house has everything you wish for: great playground in the garden for the younger ones, air hockey and pool billiard for the older ones. Fishing from the river shore is excellent, the kids pulled out some impressive white fish!

We did the canoe tour with the company just a mile away. They took us up Saco river with a bus and we floated and paddled for 3-4 hours to get back to the starting point - highly recommended!

David who takes care of the house was very friendly and helped the kids out with hooks for the fishing rods. When the wifi and phone didn't work at first (due to a lightning hit along the line), he organized repair immediately and Linda, the owner checked back with us to see if everything worked again. Please note that only US cellular works in this area (no chance with T-mobile or AT&T to get a signal).

The firepit in the garden is perfect for a cozy evening setting and the gas grill works very well.

The triangle along Denmark Rd/ Lords Hill Rd/ Rocky Knoll Rd/ W Main St. makes for a nice but pretty tough 6.8 mile run.

We absolutely loved this place!

Brownfield Delight

  • 5 of 5

My family and neighbors chose Linda's home for a fortunate Independence Day opening. What a beautiful home with great accommodations. The Saco River is literally off the back yard and with many lakes and ponds in the region, we were not lacking for activity. Kayaking, tube floating, paddle boarding and the sun was plentiful. We would gladly return in the future. The home was obviously well cared for, and unique. Plenty of space and very comfortable. The owners were very engaged and easy to communicate with if needed. Thank You.

Amazing place, very well maintained, they thought of everything when they built this place. Plenty of space, things to do and tons of nice would work and decor to look at. You would have a tough time finding a better property to rent for you and your family.

Wonderful Winter Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Linda, It was so wonderful being back at your house on the river. It was just as wonderful as we remember. The house is in impeccable condition, seems brand new, every bedroom was so comfortable. We did venture out and did a little bit of hiking along the river, we didn't get too far because it was cold, but coming in to a roaring fire and hot cocoa did the trick. We can't wait to go back. It was the perfect relaxing weekend. Thank you so much for sharing your place with us.
