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 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.
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.
Check out is at 11;00, but we can be flexible.
We welcome everyone to our home without regard to race, color, or creed, sexual orientation or identity. If we are home, we'd love to meet you. If you'd like info or suggestions on things to see and do in Maine, we'd be glad to help!
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!
