  • Description


    My home is in North Berwick, ME, just a short drive to the coast (Ogunquit, Kennebunkport, Portland, Portsmouth, etc). It is also not far from Boston. There is so much to do and see around here, and it is beautiful, especially in the Summertime!

    My house is a beautiful, historic Colonial home called The Morrell House (check out its Wiki page). There is lots of space here and lots to do, including minor home updates, furniture upcycling, decorating, gardening, lawn maintenance and chimney/fireplace maintenance.

    I love opening my home to new and interesting people and enjoy conversing and sharing meals. If this sounds interesting to you, please write me.

  • Accommodation


    My Workawayer will have their own bedroom and a shared bathroom. The kitchen, dining room and living room will also be shared with me, the host. The Workawayer will also have access to television. Food will be provided, assuming the requirements are reasonable.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The Workawayer will be responsible for their own transportation. I have a vehicle and can accommodate occasional rides, but not always. We can also go on outings together, if the situation arises.

    The Workawayer can spend their free time as they wish, but I expect responsible behavior. I would like someone who is not a drug user or a heavy drinker. Light drinking is fine. I would also like someone who is reasonably tidy and can keep their space clean and will pick up after themselves. I would prefer someone with reasonably good English skills, but I am certainly happy to assist, a little, if their English needs improving. If the Workawayer has a pet, we can determine whether that will be accommodated (case-by-case).
