Home away from home
It was such a great experience! James and Ellen we’re very welcoming and attentive to our needs. I’ll never stay in a hotel again! Thank you
Thank you! We try to be accommodating and responsive to each guest's needs as they are communicated to us. We want all our guests to have a "home away from home" experience and a desire to come back again.
Great natural surroundings and private apartment!
This is the perfect location if you want peace, quiet and solitude. However, it is not equipped for long term rentals. Did not have a tv/sitting area and functional kitchen/cooking area. Otherwise a comfortable short term getaway.
Thank you for your feedback. You were our first "Homeaway" guests at this location but we have been doing short-term rentals in this space for many years with nary a complaint. We're very sorry you found our space unsatisfactory for your personal needs.
Because this is indeed a quiet and restful getaway setting and place for solitude, we intentionally do not provide a television in the space. There is a sofa in the second bedroom and a comfortable chair in the main bedroom. For a long-term renter, we would expect to rearrange, add, or take away furniture to accommodate our guests' needs. For example, the second bedroom could easily become a designated living room by moving out the twin bed and moving in a chair or two and a coffee table. This would just need to be communicated to us.
Also, because this apartment is part of our family home, all guests have full access to our downstairs, where there is a comfortable and quiet library and our family living room for relaxing and/or watching movies. (Again, though, we do not have cable or satellite TV because we want our home to be quiet and peaceful.) Guests may even use our family kitchen (even though the apartment has a lovely large kitchen of its own). We love to interact with and get to know our guests and so we open up the main living spaces of our entire home for use. Of course, if you prefer complete privacy within the apartment, we respect that.
From our conversations, we also understand that the location was a bit too far from "civilization" for you. Yes, northern Maine is much different from Miami, Florida!!
We wish you well with your remaining time in northern Maine!
James & Ellen
