The SpaceSomeday you'll find yourself in Ellsworth, Maine. And when you do you are welcome to stay at my home, Heading Up. Casual lodging in a comfortable private home. Located in Ellsworth, this is the heart of Downeast Maine and is close to all the interesting and utterly gorgeous local attractions. Bar Harbor is 30 minutes away, Schoodic 40 minutes, Blue Hill 20 minutes, Stonington 50 minutes and Machias 1 hr,10 minutes. Staying in Ellsworth with its authentic and vibrant downtown is the most convenient town to all of Hancock County. Since I'm a local myself I'll steer your compass on the best Maine adventures from Acadia to Stonington to Moosehead Lake to Canada, and everything in-between. I've been in the food and lodging biz up here for 40 years so my wealth of experience and passion for the area will aid in giving you a great vacation experience. Or if you already know what you want to do here, I'll step back and listen to you. There is always something new to learn. My home is a 1937 Dutch Colonial with lots of room to spread out that is sunny all day and has a nicely landscaped yard. Located on a quiet side street in one of the city's most desirable areas, the house offers plenty of privacy for you with two separate livingrooms, a new spacious kitchen, glassed in porch and deck along with a beautiful stone terrace surrounded by a cottage garden and a garage to stash bikes and anything else you might want to leave behind for your day trips. Your bedroom has a queen size bed with original Maine artwork on the walls and is decorated in a tasteful cottage look..Until I get the new bathroom finished you will share an upstairs bathroom with me, but you'll never know I'm around. Plush towels, nice bedding and a comforter make it hard to leave. And you just might need the comforter for those slightly chilly nights when the ocean breezes fill the air. A French press is always on the counter for whenever you want a cup of locally roasted coffee. Tea drinker? I have a nice selection. My house is roomy so there is lots of space for both privacy and to move around. Your cell phone always works here and wifi is always on. Located within walking distance of our historic and lovely downtown you will find great spots where the locals hang out like the Maine Grind and a James Beard award winning restaurant, Cleonice. A great pub awaits you for local color, homemade ice cream for your sweet tooth and an absolutely fabulous seafood restaurant, the Union River Lobster Pot, that serves the freshest lobster around is right down the street. Asian food, pizza and lobster rolls are a short car ride away. Something new this year is my friend at Morton's Moo reasonably priced lobster boat ride down the Union River to Bluehill Bay which I can arrange a trip for you . Or if you've brought your kayak some of the best river to ocean tripping is right here. Or try tubing down the Union River. I'll even provide you with a tube. Traveling with your dog? As long as Fido is well behaved, can handle cats and likes my Basset, Gus, we certainly can accommodate. NPR is usually tuned in for All Things Considered and the daily paper edition of the New York Times is always on the kitchen counter. You are welcome to peruse my generous library of maps, guidebooks and Maine based magazines for your pleasure and use. Want to know the REAL MAINE? Meet REAL MAINERS? Discover the magical out of the way places? Allow me to be your guide and host for your 2012 Downeast vacation. Please Note: You must post your photo and describe yourself on the airbnb website. I want to know something about you and your interests. I decline anonymous bookings. The NeighborhoodI live in a quiet, nice neighborhood with single family dwellings, all at least 80 years old. Getting AroundYou can walk to the historic downtown, but need a car otherwise.

It was so cool to be your first lodgers. ~ The outdoor shower is amazing! Peace! ~ Carol & Tom, This was truly an experience of coming home. Thank you for the simple, yet cozy cabin.
