ONLY ONE 5 NIGHT SLOT OPEN IN JUNE FOR THE 2015 SUMMER RENTAL SEASON!!! YOU CAN BOOK FOR SUMMER 2016 AND GET THE BEST DATES IN OUR LOVELY APARTMENT!!! Spacious apartment available for rent on upper level of historic 1879 home. We are located in one of Brunswick’s most desirable neighborhoods: two blocks from the center of town, a 10 minute walk from Bowdoin campus, a 20 minute walk to the riverfront and a short drive to several ocean access points. Our renovated apartment features vaulted ceilings in the living room, one large bedroom, one smaller bedroom/study, a loft, full bathroom and washer/dryer off the kitchen. The rental is fully equipped with furniture, linens, kitchenware and WiFi.
In the heart of historic downtown Brunswick, we are a short walk to Maine Street with more than 48 stores and restaurants. In the summer, the town “Green” provides evening Music in the Park performances, twice-weekly Farmers’ Markets, Artwalk and 'Taste of Brunswick.' Bowdoin College offers its well-known Art Museum and each summer hosts an International Music Festival, as well as the famous Maine State Music Theater. Just a few miles’ drive will take you to the many picnic coves and sandy beaches in Harpswell, Bailey Island, Orr’s Island, Bath and Freeport. Brunswick is considered the gateway to Mid-Coast Maine; it is a perfect starting point for many short day trips to lighthouses and other coastal attractions like Lands End, Cundy's Harbor, Wiscasset, Boothbay Harbor, Damariscotta, Georgetown Island, and Pemaquid....
We love it here and will happily share the secret places most people drive by on their way to overcrowded and oversold locations. We look forward to introducing guests to our beautiful area and hope they will return summer after summer. Our historic neighborhood is a tight knit community filled with professors, actors, artists, chefs and writers. You will love it here.
Please note that there is a set of stairs up to the apartment and a set of stairs up to the 3rd floor master bedroom. So if you have a difficult time with stairs this may not be the best apartment for you. It is on the two upper levels of an 1879 historic home as mentioned above.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: Originally from California we have taken an educational tour of the country for my wife to receive her Masters from Tufts and PhD from Duke and now she is currently a professor at Bowdoin College. I am a stay at home Dad taking care of my elementary-age son and daughter. I am a CPA by training but use it only sparingly now. Though we will never be seen as real 'Mainers,' we have adopted Maine as our favorite state. We want to help those not from here to experience Maine as if you had a family member or friend living here.
Why the Owner Chose Brunswick:
We bought our historic 1879 home on School Street to be within walking distance of Bowdoin College and all that downtown Brunswick has to offer. School Street is a special neighborhood of professors, artists and writers that we fell in love with. It has beautiful brick sidewalks and neighbors that pride themselves on their gardens. We wanted to have an apartment that we could rent out to other visiting faculty or international musicians traveling to the Bowdoin International Music Festival. We would like to open up our apartment to Summer guests to enjoy Maine the way we do.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We love our proximity to all the shops and restaurants on Maine Street. In the morning, you can enjoy Wild Oats bakery at the end of our street for some yummy baked goods or a cappuccino, and in the evening take in a movie at the one- screen Evening Star Theater in the quaint down-town 'mall'. We have a beautiful yard where we grow our own blueberries, blackberries and roses. I love the smell of our local coffee roasting company, 'Wicked Joe's,' roasting coffee during the day. I love the tree lined street of Park Row with the huge Captain Houses. I love that we are so close to the ocean and many amazing coves and harbors and yet still in the center of town that is thriving with shops, restaurants and things to do and see. Join in on some of our neighborhood events or let us point you in the right direction for an adventure off the beaten path.
