Welcome to the Big Red House in Bangor! After the BRH became temporary housing for medical personnel at the start of the pandemic, it is back to hosting vacationers. We thank our essential workers for being a light in our darkest hours.❤️ We are excited to invite back familiar faces as well as new travelers to Maine. Built c. 1869, the BRH is one of the Queen City’s oldest homes; once the residence of sea captains and other interesting people of the past. Come stay!

The space
This gorgeous house has 3 bedrooms; Orion’s Garden and Rue du Soleil with queen beds, and the Cambria Room with a twin. There are 2 full bathrooms with claw foot tubs; 1 with shower. The living room and office are adjoining with French doors. Enjoy a huge eat-in kitchen with window seats and an arched pass-through, a big walk-in closet, 21 tall windows, tin ceilings, wood flooring and Italian tile. Cozy up with the parlor pellet stove for those cold nights. There's a leather reclining circular sofa, large office desk with return, backyard deck, and driveway long enough for three cars. Park your car in the garage to get out of the snow, if you like. Wi-Fi, TV and DVD player, too! Plenty of movies to watch. The Big Red House is close to the downtown area, where you'll find theatres, art galleries, museums, shops, boutique restaurants, night life, the Penobscot River, and concerts on the famous Bangor Waterfront (when the pandemic ends.) The yummy rhubarb growing in the side garden is yours to pick for pie-making during the summer. Take a look through our entire photo gallery to find hand-written reviews from our wonderful guests who have shared their happy stays at the Big Red House. We can't wait to meet you! See you soon.

Guest access
You will have access to the entire house, except attic and basement.

Other things to note
SPECIAL RATES: If you are in need of immediate accommodations, I am flexible on last minute reservation rates.

UPDATE: The State of Maine is now requiring that all guests pay Occupancy Taxes and Fees, which are automatically added on to your total bill when you book. We apologize for this fee, but it is out of our control. We do everything we can to keep the actual house booking rate as low as possible, because of this. But please keep in mind of that added fee and know that hosts do not collect any part of it.

See you soon!

Bangor, Maine, United States

The neighborhood is nice and quiet and it has a ton of history! It is considered East Side Bangor and is located 2 blocks from the home of famous Maine author, Stephen King and less than a mile from the Bangor Waterfront where summer concerts typically take place. Bangor was once the logging capital of the world and was host to hundreds of European immigrants seeking logging jobs along the Penobscot River. Visit the Bangor Historical Society down the street to learn more about Bangor’s rich history including the 1937 Brady Gang Shootout on Central Street, downtown. The Big Red House is within walking distance to grocery/convenience stores, gas stations, hair salons, restaurants, museums, theaters, churches, schools, and parks. Stay in a part of history. Stay at the Big Red House!

Hi Guest! I can't wait for your visit to the Big Red House in Bangor. Built around 1869, the historic Big Red House was my permanent home for nearly 25 years. So many wonderful memories are here. While in Maine, I was a television and radio announcer for several stations and can still be heard from time to time on WFMX in the Augusta area. (Now, I take people shark diving in California! A story for another day.) Many of my family members were born and raised in Bangor and the surrounding towns. This will always be our 'home.' There are some wonderful little boutique restaurants right downtown that I loved to frequent. I saw many performances at the Penobscot Theatre on Main Street, as well. A river stroll along the waterfront is also something to look forward to. If you venture on a short walk just a couple blocks away, you'll find the house of Maine Author, Stephen King. It's red, just like mine! There is so much history to learn about the charming ‘Queen City.’ Visit the Bangor Historical Society to find out more, while you’re here. I understand why you have come to Airbnb. Not only will you find deals on overnight stays, but it's just that feel of secure comfort that we love when we are away from home. I've traveled to many places, both in the US and in foreign lands, and I always enjoyed sleeping at guest houses and quaint little inns. There's something special about staying at the home of a local. The Big Red House awaits you. ~Cindy
