About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

I share my country home and land like a B&B or share my kitchen and living space. Camping is available, reduced rates. We also have two winterized and heated yurts that may be available for short or long term rentals. Dogs may be welcome, we have 500' fenced area and a dog door. My specialty is encouraging folks in their trying out cross country skiing and kayaking: I offer recreational service for cross country skiing in my field and nearby trails, including the Strafford Nordic Ski area (I have equipment available, instruction) and gentle water kayaking on nearby lakes and gentle rivers (12 various kayaks for all ability levels and ages, instruction). Please leave phone number or email address when you contact me.
Rates are per bedroom for 2 people, there are 2 bedrooms if needed/wanted. It's $10 per person for extra people in each bedroom, up to two children in an adult bedroom. More than three adults need to take two bedrooms.
We are off-grid solar powered, so please turn lights off behind you, and charge your phones while awake (rather than leaving them plugged in overnight).
There are two older animals: the cat Tuck, and often Ripple the golden retriever will be home.
