The Captain's Room of this 1873 Greek Revival home built on an island accessible only by ferry boat, for Captain David Nelson Hill in 1873 is at the top of the center staircase with easy access to the second floor shared bathroom. This room features an antique, full-size cannonball bed, and a love seat tucked into a stained glass dormer sitting area. Enjoy the use of the first floor well equipped kitchen and public rooms.

The space
Our home, one of the Stone Sloop Captains' houses built in the mid 1800s, is situated on a lovely 2 acre property at the water's edge and accommodates 8 in 5 rooms on the second floor: Garden View $75-1 twin bed; Walter's Comfy Room $150-King or 2 twin beds and chaise; Captain's Room $125-full bed and love seat; J's Cozy Room/full bed $75 for 1, $100 for 2; & C's Tuck-away Room/twin-$63.

The house is in walking distance of the CTC Ferry, Stone Wharf, beach, museum, library, store and restaurants. Our property is smoke free, inside and out, but feel free to bring along your favorite beverage to sip while you sit on the back bank and watch the birds and boats or just relax in the hammock. There are flowers and trees, and Nulla the cat, who lives in our private quarters, to add to your enjoyment.

We have beds for a total of 8 guests in 5 rooms (3 two person rooms and 2 one person rooms) on the second floor of the original sea captain's house. Two two-person rooms and 1 one-person room have total privacy. The other two rooms, adjacent to the Captain's Room, are "pullman" style, similar to a train in that you must walk through one room to get to the next. This is perfect for a family or close friends. The first two rooms have full size beds. The third room has a twin size bed and access to the secondary staircase to the first floor. All beds in our home have memory foam toppers, plush mattress pads and at least 400 count cotton sheets.

The rooms, on the original second floor, share a bathroom centrally located at the top of the main staircase. The outside shower (available April - October), private and constructed with blue stone, and a first floor lav are also available to guests to help streamline readying for scheduled events.

Guest access
Guests have use of our public rooms and grounds, including the "back bank", which is a great place for sitting and sipping while watching egrets, herons, belted king fishers and the MV Islander's comings and goings. Breakfast can be enjoyed in the kitchen, dining room or backyard, depending on guest preference and weather. Dietary preferences and requirements are taken into consideration when I'm informed in advance.

Guests may use our kitchen, bring food to prepare, or order a food delivery from Whole Foods in advance of arrival. If you'd like, accomplished professional chefs and gourmet cooks, who make their home on the Island, may be available to cook up a special meal for you. Fresh lobster is available from local lobstermen if you'd like to prepare a traditional steamed lobster dinner. Breakfast foods and supplies are available, let me know how I can help you manage lunch and dinners.

Groceries can be purchased from Doughty's Island Market, open all year and just a short walk down the South Road, but you'll find frozen meats, not fresh. Doughty's is also a great place to pick up a sandwich, a slice of pizza, a cup of coffee and if you're lucky - Julie's award winning chili, beef stew, or haddock chowder. It's closed on Wednesdays except during the busy summer season.

Wi-Fi is available throughout the house. Our formal living room doubles as our media room with a 10' screen and surround sound. There are water color paints and art paper, board games, chess and playing cards, as well as many books for our guests enjoyment.

Other things to note
Chebeague Island is all about community, it is not necessarily a tourist destination. If you're looking for quaint shops and cafes, check out the Old Port in Portland before or after you visit Chebeague. Many artists and craftsmen make their home on Chebeague Island. I will be happy to connect you with a local artist if you are interested in viewing paintings, sculptures, wooden bowls and vases, wooden carvings and signs, hand made toys, original jewelry, hand loomed rugs and towels and more.

Another helpful link is our island's website at www dot chebeague dot org ... it will give you a feel for the community and access to links to island organizations, businesses and events.

I enjoy sharing time with friends, family and guests. Whether gathered in the kitchen or seated around our dining table, I'm energized by conversations that evolve and find satisfaction in knowing that folks are able to comfortably share ideas and experiences. I'm pretty easy going and welcome help when offered. I'm not easily frazzled by large groups of visitors. I love to laugh and my husband and I have many interests, including travel, visiting museums, viewing architecture, attending theater and cultural events, volunteering with community organizations, walking, biking, sailing and eating tasty food.
