ゲスト4人, 2寝室, ベッド2台, バスルーム：2
My husband, Paul and I both grew up in large, warm and open Southern families, with parents who welcomed everyone under the sun to join us for dinner, backyard picnics, homemade ice cream, and of course, holidays. By the time we were all rolling through university -- all of our college friends who didn't have a spot to land for the weekend or for semester breaks came home with us and joined the fun. Our world revolved around interesting people who thoroughly enjoyed a good laugh -- and a good time. When we married, it was second nature to us to continue the traditions we were brought up with and invite exchange students, visiting teachers, nieces and nephews, mothers, aunts and siblings to spend a week, a few months, or many years with our family in Atlanta, Georgia. And what a rich and wonderful life our family has had as a result! I spent my twenties living and working on Mt. Desert Island, off the Maine coast. I brought Paul to the Island soon after we married, but we made our home in Georgia. We spent 34 wonderful years in Atlanta, but Maine is where my heart is. My friends of 40+ years have welcomed Paul into our circle here. We all bike, hike, swim, kayak and picnic together in the summer. In the winter, it's all about snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing, potluck dinners and long evenings visiting by the fire. This is our world and we treasure it. So....we've decided to combine our love of people, our love of place and the great joy we get from connecting with interesting folks to create a special space for people who venture to Maine to explore Acadia National Park and Mt. Desert Island. We're all about building connections: to friends, to the community, to the magical adventures the Island has to offer. Paul is a designer and an accomplished builder, who restored old houses and built new ones for over 25 years in Atlanta. I've spent my career as an HR executive, consultant and communications specialist. We've completed renovations on our 1847 farmhouse. Paul has converted our old barn into two apartments -- a pretty amazing transformation. We have plans to build additional cottage dwellings on our property. Our project keeps us busy and happy, and is the beginning of that little pocket community we've long envisioned.

We live on the premises, so we're available for questions and conversations as our guests require or desire. We're all about community, while appreciating everyone's privacy. We've designed our spaces with that in mind.
