The SpaceYour guest suite overlooks a beautiful expansive view of the pond, our little bridge, acres of near the beach floral and fauna plus you are just minutes from beautiful beaches, lighthouses, a lobster shack, amazing rocky coastline & the entertainment & excitement of vibrant Portland, Maine. Romantic setting, new beds, new bedding, private bath, huge TV, 2 love seats, & dining area. Professionally designed. Luxury+value.
Imagine, you can be minutes from the most beautiful beaches in Maine and minutes from Maine's most exciting city, Portland, at the same time. Plus you can stay at a beautiful professionally designed home at a rate that is at least half of what you would pay at the impersonal Best Western in the industrial part of Portland!
The space is unique because I am an interior designer so I have put my skill to the test creating a home that reflects the beautiful beach surroundings we get to enjoy everyday, all year round. Your space is very impressive and people often comment that it is even more beautiful in person and way larger than it appears in pictures. I enjoy updating (i.e., retail therapy shopping) so don't be surprised by a new couch or painting or whatever that could differ from the last time I posted pictures. This is the fun part of Air BnB for me. I like to "Wow!" people and I really enjoy providing a vacation experience like I wish I could find when I am on vacation.
So, needless to say, everything is new and quality including the new ultra comfortable pillow top mattresses and the huge (I mean the size of a tiny NYC bedroom!) freshly updated bathroom. We even offer the option to try all kinds of fancy pillows: Brookstone, Cuddledown, My Pillow, Sleep for Success.... Guest AccessGuests are more than welcome to chat and hang out with us, if that is what you want and if we happen to be around or available.
We do not offer B and B in the traditional sense of Bed and Breakfast because of our busy lives, confining tax laws, and the fact that my husband is not always available to cook, plus we want to keep the price low, but what we do offer is a very well kept spacious area of our house with a private bath in one of the best locations around. You have the beach and you have the the fun of Portland right at your finger tips.
We rarely saw our last guests, the night before we enjoyed appetizers and a glass of wine while watching the sunset with another set of guests and today we will be going to the lake and won't be around at all.
There's so much fun stuff to do in this area that we often are out and about, just like you probably will be too. Our guests are as diverse as the world itself, some people love their privacy and there's plenty of that here, some love to be social and we are open for that too. Interaction with GuestsWe have lived in Cape Elizabeth, Maine for a while and really know it well. We not only know of some of the best restaurants and places to visit, we love sharing this information with orhers. Another little specialty of ours is finding great deals. There are wonderful happy hours and places that have great specials that only a local would know about.
Guests will have access to an amazing deck with a new grill. You also have open access to times to chat and hang out with us, if that is what you want.
We do not offer B and B in the traditional sense of Bed and Breakfast but instead a "homestay", there are so many wonderful places to have breakfast around here. Try the Good Table and C Salt. What we do offer is a low price, a very well kept room and house, and a very hearty welcome. Hang out time works for us, and then we are open for whatever spontaneous gatherings that can happen.
Last night our guests joined us in the Old Port at Boones, the night before we enjoyed appetizers and a glass of wine with our guests while the sunset, today we will be going to the lake and won't be around at all. There's so much fun stuff to do in this area that we often are out and about, just like you probably will be too. Our guests are as diverse as the world itself, some people love their privacy and there's plenty of that here, some love to be social and we are open for that too. The NeighborhoodI often marvel at our good fortune of being so very close to a destination city as cool and sophisticated as Portland, Maine and being at the beach at the same time. We have the best of both worlds. It is no wonder that Portland is on the top 10 lists of awesome places to visit.
I am also not surprised that our local lighthouse is the most photographed in the world. This place is gorgeous. Look up Portland Headlight and you will see why. There is a classic cliff walk to the left of the lighthouse that is so pretty that we had wedding photos taken there. There are actually 5 lighthouse nearby and a bike tour that takes you to all of them...or you could drive. This is an incredible place and we get to call it home and you will get to call it one of your favorite vacation spots if you decide to stay here and we hope you will. Getting AroundYou will need a car if you're coming out to Cape Elizabeth in order to really enjoy the area. You could always Uber your way around, but in the end you will probably want the convenience of a car.
