    Description

    My wife and I are a retired, christian couple and live on a 15 acre farm in rural Maine. We have a few beef cows and 40 or so chickens. It is very quiet where we live and not much happens outside of our normal routine.
    Maine, on the other hand, is very beautiful and we have four distinct seasons, autumn being our favorite followed by summer and winter. We are 40 miles from the Atlantic coast which attracts tourists by the tens of thousands every summer. I guess that's why we love the fall.
    I am a guitarist/bassist, hobby carpenter, hunter, farmer, cook etc.. and my wife is an avid biker, flower gardener and loves to study the bible.
    We have a very simple, relaxed life but still we are always doing something.
    We used to own a health food store so we tend to eat healthy, but not as healthy as some of our customers.
    Our house is new and very user friendly and we often have company. We have two extra bedrooms upstairs which share a bathroom and a living space with a large flat screen for viewing netflix etc. but we have no television.
    I hesitate to romanticize it too much, but it is very nice. We are just common folk that could use a hand and would love to share the little knowledge we have with you.

    Mi esposa y yo somos una pareja cristiana, jubilada y vivimos en una granja de 15 acres en Maine rural. Tenemos algunas vacas de carne y más de 40 gallinas. Es muy tranquilo donde vivimos y no sucede mucho fuera de nuestra rutina normal.
    Maine, por otro lado, es muy hermoso y tenemos cuatro estaciones distintas, siendo el otoño "nuestro favorito" seguido del verano y el invierno. Estamos a 40 millas de la costa atlántica que atrae a turistas por decenas de miles cada verano. Supongo que es por eso que amamos el otoño.
    Soy un guitarrista / bajista, hobby carpintero, cazador, granjero, cocinero, etc. y mi esposa es una ciclista ávida, jardinero de flores y le encanta estudiar la Biblia.
    Tenemos una vida muy simple y relajada, pero siempre estamos haciendo algo.
    Solíamos tener una tienda de alimentos saludables, por lo que tendemos a comer de forma saludable, pero no tan saludable como algunos de nuestros clientes.
    Nuestra casa es nueva y muy fácil de usar y, a menudo, tenemos compañía. Tenemos dos dormitorios adicionales en el piso de arriba que comparten un baño y una sala de estar con una gran pantalla plana para ver netflix, etc., pero no tenemos televisión.
    Dudo romantizar demasiado, pero es muy agradable. Solo somos gente común que podría usar una mano y nos encantaría compartir el poco conocimiento que tenemos con usted.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Re; time off.
    We would make an effort to show our guests our State; vast forests, hundreds of lakes, hiking trails, etc..
    They don't call it Vacation Land for nothing.
    Our State motto is "The way life should be" and the unofficial motto is, "Life in the slow lane".
    What one would like to do depends on their interests and we would be more than happy to accommodate.
