Our "Little House", located in Mid-coast Maine, is close to Brunswick, Bowdoin College, scenic coastal Route One, the ocean, Bath, Harpswell (20 mins), Portland ( 30 mins) and Thomas Point beach. There are great restaurants and shops within walking distance. You’ll love our place because of the wonderful gardens, National Historic Landmark status, the coziness and comfort, and the great location. Great for couples and solo adventurers. Special pricing for long-term stays.

The space

The Little House was built in 1795 and is part of a larger home, known as the Walker-Wilson house, which was completed in 1803 and became a stop on the Underground Railway. The first residents lived in the Little House while waiting for the larger house to be completed. Although it shares an entryway with our home, it is completely private. Today, the Little House retains all of its charm with the comfort of modern amenities. There is a living space on the first floor with a mini-kitchen (refrigerator, sink, cooktop and microwave) tucked into an alcove; a small table and chairs and a television. A daybed provides additional sleeping space. Upstairs, there is a spacious bedroom with a double bed and a private bath.

Guest access

You will have the Little House all to yourself and you are welcome to enjoy our beautiful gardens.

Other things to note

Midcoast is the place to stay in Maine! From here, you can drive up coastal Route One; take a day trip or an overnight to the western mountains; or be in Portland, known for great food, the Old Port, shopping and nightlife, in 30 minutes. Freeport, known for outlet shopping and LL Bean, is midway between Topsham and Portland. Kayaking and beautiful walking trails are available locally. Whale watching is just up the coast at Boothbay Harbor. Please note: t1) The Little House is two stories and the stairs are a bit steeper than modern ones. We are, unfortunately, not handicap accessible. 2) We have two small dogs, who you will hear barking, upon arrival and when you come and go, but no one has ever complained about noise during their stay. 3) This is Maine. Even in this day and age, internet can be a bit spotty.

The "Little House" is perfect for exploring the Brunswick area, and especially convenient when attending any Bowdoin College activities. It was well equipped, cozy, whimsical, and comfortable! We loved it.

A return visit to Kathleen's lovely, historic home was as welcoming as I remembered! This is a great place to be if you want some quiet away from the bustle of downtown Brunswick. It works well for a couple, especially if you are spending time in and around the area exploring and you like staying in wonderful older New England homes!

I adored Kathleen's little Topsham getaway. I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday, and we felt so happy and peak Maine in this cozy hideaway. The space feels ample and relaxing. If comfy beds matter to you, you'll be happy. Can't say enough good things! We really enjoyed the area too, and walked down to the movie theater/restaurant over the bridge and had a pint at the brewery. Not too far from Portland by car. A+ Airbnb experience.

The Tiny House is a wonderful find! The hosts communicated well, the space is comfortable, clean and cheery, and the location is very convenient. Everything was as pictured on the website. We hope that this place will be available when we visit the area again. Thanks for a great stay!

Great location near Beaudoin College and not too far from Bates for parent and family weekend visits. Friendly hosts and a cozy atmosphere.

We really enjoyed the location of the Little House. There is a nice big parking area and plenty of exterior lights if you return at night. It was a short walk down the hill and across the bridge to the coffee shops and restaurants in Brunswick. Kathleen has stocked the apartment with great guide books for the Maine Coastal area. We ended up using two of them on our day trip to Harpswell one day. A nice location for driving to Portland and Freeport as well.

About Kathleen

We love living in an historic home and sharing it with people. I am a retired attorney and although my husband still works hard, we travel as often as we can. We sail on Casco Bay; he skis while I read; and we both love music, theatre and entertaining family and friends. Come stay with us! We'd love to meet you!
