About this listing
Historic Cape Elizabeth New England Farm House overlooking the Spurwink River as it meanders to Higgins Beach 4 miles away. 10 minutes to downtown Portland. Perfect for a surf or cross country ski getaway with cozy wood stove and beautiful views.
We are in the process of moving and unpacking, so the space is "rough". But guests will have their own room, furnished with a full size bed and comfortable and clean bedding, necessary lighting, and any other essential amenities. As the room comes together we'll try to post pictures.
Kitchen, dining room, living room (with TV you can connect your computer to for watching netflix), and front porch for enjoying the weather while it lasts.
Interaction with guests
It kind of just depends. Sometimes we'll be doing our own things, and sometimes we are around. But this home includes young professionals who enjoy surfing, hiking, and sitting around a wood stove while making dinner together. It can be a very quiet space, or it can be warm and energetic. Regardless, the house is big, so if you want a quiet retreat with space for reflection you can definitely find it.
-Just down the street is Wells Farm where you can book a wonderful dinner with excellent food, made with fresh ingredients straight from the farm.
-Parking is available on this property. We are only a 10 minute drive from Higgins Beach, and are equally close to down town Portland. We do recommend you come with a car as there is no public transport.
Other things to note
-There is only one bathroom in this house, but so far that has not been a problem.
-Use of the laundry machine (and detergent) is available for $3/load for washing machine, and $2 for the dryer.
-If you enjoy surfing... we do too!
-This house is located on a great Cape Elizabeth walk that goes through woods and has a number of wandering routes. There are also great roads for people who like to run or bike.
-Be respectful of properties and peoples.
