  • Description


    My husband and I and our two small children moved up to this beautiful place in Maine in 2003. Our children are now grown. We are looking for someone or 2 to help us with social media and marketing (including videos) for an altruistic project and we are seeking help with creating a really cool hiking path on our 25 acres of woods as well as a handy person who can help with odd jobs around the house like painting, fixing etc.. I am an educator and teach among many other things, yoga, meditation, vegan/raw cooking and am interested in connecting with people and uplifting and sharing life's adventures. This part of Maine is beautiful and offers nature lovers an array of absolutely gorgeous hiking trails and mountains. My husband runs two small companies involved in energy monitoring and weather data and management. We are both interested in nature, nutrition, hiking, sustainability and spirituality and entrepreneur adventures!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live on 25 acres of beautiful woods along the edge of a pond in Downeast Maine. I am an educator and teach a wide variety of things including yoga, meditation, raw food/vegan cooking. We are not far from one of the most beautiful parks in the country, Acadia National park. We can offer a beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 bath home on the edge of a fresh water pond with lovely amenities. We are involved in many local activities and also travel down the east coast often to Boston and NY. There are many opportunities to learn about our area and explore nature and life around us.

  • Help

Comfortable working with chain saw, raking and trimming and marking the trails. This person or people are also good at painting and helping with odd jobs around the house. .

    4 bedroom, 3 bath lovely home on the edge of a pond surrounded by nature and 25 acres of land. My husband and I live next door and so you can enjoy the house all to yourselves but be close by to our home.

    What else ...

    During time off, there are many beautiful places to hike and explore. Acadia National Park is about 50 minutes away as well as the coastline down to Deer Isle, Stonington, Castine and more. We love to hike and explore new trails during our time off. We live in an area where there are several amazing organic farms where we can get THE BEST produce. Cooking nutritious meals is one of great pleasures.
    We think a two week stay will be sufficient. If guests would like to stay longer, we can certainly discuss.
