You’ll love my place because it is open and sunny. It is a large studio space. (1500sq ft) The space is loosely divided into gym space, living room/TV space, food prep space, and sleeping space. 3/4 bathroom is in a separate room. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).

The space

My space is the complete upstairs of my Barn/Workshop. Below the studio rental is my woodworking shop I can tell you before your booking if I will be working in the shop during your stay. If I am it will be between hours of 7:30AM and 5 PM. Some noise travels between spaces. I'm happy to give you a shop tour and show you any projects under way.

Guest access

You will have your own entrance and complete run of the upstairs space. My workshop below is not part of the rental.

Interaction with guests

My wife and I live in the house adjacent to my airBnB space. We're happy to answer questions or give tips on our local favorites but otherwise will give our guests privacy.

Other things to note

We have a friendly chocolate labrador dog that will likely greet you as you drive in. You will also see the solar roof panels that provide all our electricity.

We had an absolutely wonderful weekend staying in Ian's apartment. The space is huge and clean. They have a beautiful piece of property that is very tranquil yet so easy to get to other places of interest (Freeport, Portland, Brunswick). Ian was warm and generous with his time and he and his lovely wife spent a few hours talking to us about all that Maine has to offer. I would highly recommend staying at Ian's place and we look forward to returning!!

This place was better than described, in a beautiful wooded area with nice gardens surrounding the house. Great trails for dog walking. It's about 20 minutes from downtown Portland. The hosts were available if needed. I'd definitely recommend it to others.

A great place in the country for dog owners who want to get out of the city. A very quiet place, but best for the early riser since the host's workshop is below.

All family enjoyed our staying in Cumberland! Area is amazing, the rooms are fun. Our hosts was really helpful. Our two teens and their friends have a new friend Willy. We really recommend this place.

Ian was very helpful during our stay. The apartment was spacious, clean, and cozy (especially during one rainy day). It was in a great location, not too far from Portland, but also far enough away to get out of the hustle and bustle. Ian let us know about some great spots to see in the surrounding areas. We loved Maine and Ian's hospitality, we hope to be back soon!
