We are very grateful to live in this beautiful place on the Maine coast and we would love share it with you.
Our home: Very peaceful, casual, eclectic home, of two Creative’s (one professional guitarist/composer and one part-time painter/full time lover of color and all things design. We are both art, music and natural health enthusiasts. Our Maine beach house is filled with art, color, antiques, and yard sale finds and overlooks 2 beautiful beaches, Rachel Carson protected marshland, and Isle of Shoals. Because the marsh is protected habitat for Great Blue Heron and other wildlife it is illegal to walk on it but the beach is just 3 minute walk on a small back road. It is very casual here, please feel free to hang out in pjs or robes provided while you have coffee or tea on the deck.
Your space: Vast marsh to ocean views from your private, large, open concept living/dining room (we have our own separate living room, eating area, etc.) and your deck space which is accessed via slider in your living room. There is a comfy couch, armoire with board games, high top dining table, coffee maker with supplies, tea, small fridge with chilled filtered water, yoga area for one, Bose CD player with iPhone connection and various books. Your large bedroom with king bed is 1/2 flight up. Your private bath not ensuite but just steps way; we provide spa robes for easy access as well as chem free shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion.

The view here is always changing, from the colors on the marsh and estuary, the occasional great blue heron, or red tail hawk, to the surf, and the clouds. It is a great place to re-charge, re-fresh and re-connect with yourself or your honey.

Amenities:
Available for use:
2 spa bathrobes
Bath towels and wash clothes, chem free shampoo, conditioner, lotion
Cooler- just ask
2 Beach chairs, and 2 beach towels
Use of deck accessed from your living room via a slider, overlooking marsh and 2 beaches,
Large sun umbrella in your deck area
Oscillating fan, though there is usually a lovely breeze off of the water at night so it's rarely necessary.
Air conditioner in bedroom for the hottest days. Ask us and we will install vent if you find it too hot. You do lose the cross breeze and hearing the ocean and the birds with the air conditioner installed. Other bedroom windows MUST be closed when AC is on.
Our water is filtered at the kitchen faucet, and fluoride free naturally

Breakfast provisions provided:
*organic tea and coffee, we have a drip coffee maker that has a timer so that you can prepare and set the night before if you like, just ask me and I will show you how, very easy.
*homemade kombucha, if you're interested let me know!
*organic white sugar, raw honey, or stevia
*fresh peppermint or orange mint for water or tea, in season
*dairy creme and almond milk
*local farm eggs- feel free to use the kitchen :)
*fruit
*fresh herbs for your eggs in season: chives & basil on the deck

If there's something you need or you run out of coffee or tea or other supples, just let us know please :)

In addition to your bathroom and your bedroom and living/dining room, you will have access to the deck outside your living room and the shared kitchen. We respect your privacy and will not come into your space unless necessary or invited and ask that you do the same for us.
**Having said that we are very mindful of conservation so if you leave the AC on with windows open or when you're not home we will come in to turn it off.

We are here often but not always, and are very available should you have questions, texting is the best means of communicating but if texting's not your thing we can make a plan B. Our living area is pretty separate from yours, and other than the shared areas, you can have as little or as much privacy as you want. There is a door between the kitchen and your living room that you can leave open or close for more privacy. I may close the door if I'm cooking to spare you the noise, I can be a loud cook! You have access to your area of the deck from your living room via a slider. We also have our own separate seating area on the deck so there are times we may be on the deck at the same time. We love to chat if you do, but if not that's fine too :) Either way, the deck is a really nice place to have coffee or tea in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening, as is the beach!

Nearby:
We are actually on an island that is connected by a small bridge, Cutts Island. The estuary, marshlands (Rachel Carson protected areas) and ocean are on one side and Rachel Carson Wildlife Sanctuary is on the other so there are lots of wonderful views. The islands you can see past Crescent Beach are the Isle of Shoals. There is a marine lab on one (Appledore), a fishing community, and a retreat (Star).

Within short walking distance:

Beach access 3 minutes, go right at end of driveway.

Hiking trails in Rachel Carson protected area, go left out of driveway. 5 minute walk to the small bridge. You’ll see a sign and a public bathroom to the right. If you follow the trails in eventually you will come to a very beautiful opening into Brave Boat Harbor. Because you will be in the woods I would suggest bug spray. We have some DEET free spray if you don't have any on hand.

Chauncey Creek- open air seafood restaurant with cooked to order lobster, byob, byo salads, sides and dessert, easy walking distance but parking available as well. 1 mile from house, left out of driveway. Seapoint Road turns into Chauncey Creek road.

Fort Foster State Park: grills, bathrooms, several small beaches, large fishing pier, grassy areas, parking available as well ($20/car all day). Take left out of the driveway, go around the big S curve and take your next left across a larger bridge, tae right at end of bridge, follow road until the end (not far) and you will come to the gate for Fort Foster.

Parking for 2 cars.
Beach is 3 minute walk.

We are open, friendly and open minded. We love to meet new people, we are fairly well traveled and love to interact with lots of different kinds of folks. We, of course, welcome people of all backgrounds regardless of ethinicity or orientation because we believe in love & respect for all humankind, and for our planet.

We love our home in this beautiful place and we love sharing it with you. Please relax, make yourself at home, and enjoy :)

Our stay at Karen's was absolutely fantastic. We'd just got off the plane from London and I can't imagine a better start to our vacation. We were a little late to arrive as it took so long to get out of the airport but Karen and her partner were very understanding gave us both a very warm welcome. The setting is even more idyllic than it looks in the photo. The bedroom is very large with a huge and very comfortable bed and the private sitting room has large windows looking out over the sea. We had a lovely breakfast on both days and immediately felt relaxed and at ease with our friendly hosts. We were reluctant to leave as we'd had such a great stay. We didn't get to visit any of the nearby beaches as it rained each time we tried to set off, so I imagine we only sampled a fraction of the beauty of the surroundings. I can't recommend this place enough. The hosts are wonderful, the rooms are fantastic and the setting is breathtaking.

Karen is an incredible host. We helped ourselves to the yummy organic choices that she provided for us for breakfast. She is a caring person with a warm personality. My husband and I stayed at her home for two amazing days and are looking forward to coming back. We had spectacular views from our living room of the protected marsh and the ocean. Imagine going to sleep every night hearing the waves of the ocean and feeling the breeze against your face (we had the windows open). We spent each day walking along the beaches and savored thier peaceful quiet home.

Had a fantastic time on Cutt's Island. Karen and Michael were very hospitable and fantastic hosts. We never felt like we were in the way, and they were casual and accommodating at all times. The view was terrific and the proximity to the private shoreline was a short 5 minute walk from the front door.

Lovely secluded and peaceful place away from the crowds of Ogonquit and York Beach. I'd definitely recommend it.

Karen was a lovely host and I felt quite welcomed and all my needs were met exactly as I had hoped. It was my first experience with Airbnb so I wasn't sure what to expect. I really appreciated their openness to interaction as well as them being fine with my needs to keep to myself as I worked on an important creative project. The rooms and deck were lovely, comfortable and tranquil and I enjoyed being so close to the ocean. Although I had the impression that I would be walking out through the backyard to get to the beach, it was fine because of the protected sandy marshland to just walk along the road for 3-4 minutes to get to lovely sandy as well as stony beaches. I also enjoyed kayaking, hiking and a great lobstah dinner at a nearby restaurant that Karen had suggested.

You know how you sometimes find a place and it's so nice you don't know if you should tell other people because you want to keep it to yourself, and you don't want to see it spoiled by all your Followers? Well, here's a place that can't be spoiled--there's just one guest room. and it' so special that you won't know how to share your secret... but Karen and Michael are sharing their special place so you'd better take advantage of their generous hospitality while it's available! The description is written so well that's it's hard to believe--believe it! I can't guarantee you'll have two beaches to yourself---someone might be walking in the distance. Your guest area is spacious, lavish, beautiful, and thoughtfully equipped. Yes, there is free parking, WiFi, your own I said, too good to be true, but it is. Lots of areas to walk, jog if that's what you do, sit still, or explore the area--if you haven't been to Portsmouth, York, Ogunquit, this is your base away from tourist hubbub. I hope I'm making it clear that you should treat yourself to a couple of nights here.

I am in the business side of music as head of LeftRev Music, my late husband's music publishing company. I am lucky to love what I do and be able to work from home for the most part.

I have a background in homeopathy and natural medicine, both of which I am passionate about. I am politically aware and active and am very involved in social justice issues. I love all things design, and color and love to create.

My life partner Michael is a professional composer and guitarist. We have had many adventures traveling together both when he performs, but also for fun. In the last two years we have driven across country twice and have traveled to Denmark twice.

Michael and I live together overlooking two small beaches on the coast of southern Maine. We could not live without art, music, discourse, humor, great food, beauty and connection. We have a casual, laid back, and peaceful lifestyle which is reflected in our home, our favorite place in the world to be.
