We enjoyed a relaxed and quiet stay at Terry's home. Great to see the garden and share stories with Terry and Melissa. Very flexible, friendly hosts, with great suggestions for local hikes and hangouts. Highly recommend!

Terry and his wife are very nice people. We arrived to a note explaining clearly where we should settle ourselves in and woke to coffee and cherries!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Terry and Melissa were very accommodating, responsive and thoughtful. The room that we stayed in was clean and spacious, we had our own bathroom downstairs as well and didn't have to share even though there was another airbnb couple there. All our needs and expectations for our stay were met.

Terry and Melissa's home is a nice cozy place. We arrived late but they were very accommodating. It was tomato harvesting time and we shared table space with various types of tomatoes. The homemade muffins and Terry's stovetop expresso was so good. It was a great experience.

Terry and Melissa are both beautiful and wonderful people. Sometimes staying in someone else's home can be a bit uncomfortable, but they make you feel at home right from the start! Their house was perfectly located between Portland and Acadia. We were able to take day trips to both during our long weekend stay. The bed was soft, the shower hot, the late nights/early mornings quiet, the stars at night sparkled and the hosts smiles were always welcoming. Waking up to the smell of Melissa baking fresh blueberry muffins in the morning and a nightcap chat with Terry were the highlights of our stay. Highly recommended

The house and property are gorgeous, and the room is very comfortable. Terry and Melissa are wonderful hosts, and we were lucky enough to catch them in the morning for toast, coffee and conversation. Additionally - we were traveling up from NYC and hit crazy traffic on the way - not only was Terry flexible and helpful with our arrival, but he offered tips on how to have a smooth ride back. Thanks again!

I live on a small farm with my partner Melissa- composting and growing organic vegetables as well as keeping bees with a small orchard. I enjoy living near the ocean so I can sail frequently. I have, among other things, been a commercial fisherman and lobsterman for several years.
