    Description

    Hi! We are a healthy, virus conscious family looking to carefully and conscienciously continue the Workaway relationship win/win we love so much.
    We just returned from our 3rd Workaway winter and need someone(s) to help with Spring upkeep and Summer harvest. We are a couple with three grown boys who enjoy gardening, mechanical and repurposing crafts. We live on several beautiful wooded acres and have access to a hundred more. COME ENJOY COASTAL MAINE and make memories, gain skills and develop life long friendships. Progressive, inclusive, wellness and community focused couple seeking your connection and a win/win in helping each other expand our horizons and learn from our peers. You might help us with beautifying, nutritional, wellness and /organizing projects, filing, cleaning and decluttering...
    Our focuses are healthy and sustainable living practices...want to learn about creating mobile tiny homes, foraging, recycled materials based art projects, healthy cooking, herbal remedies....
    We have a rustic island home with acres to walk and explore by bicycle just enjoy the warm vibe of vaulted log ceilings and beautiful nature from the big picture window or your cozy room, tent or outbuilding based on time you arrive. The pets are easy and love attention (and give lots too!) We cook healthy whole foods and share up often and would love to learn about your favorite recipes. We provide some meals and ask Workaways to have a few staples to feed selves when we don't. We appreciate your artistic flair, your organizational skills, your energy of collaboration and your curiosity! You will love your down time to explore coastal Maine or just rest up and renew. We seek people who are SERIOUS about social distancing and willing and able to stick close to home if you call ours yours for a while. We will encourage you to explore our beautiful state for certain!
    Hope to see you soon.
    Give us a call! We hope to join forces and curious minds soon.
    Cary and Huggy

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will plug in with a friendly, connecting, accepting family who loves learning and teaching and sees the benefit of your presence here. We have raised three amazing boys and our stories of "alternative" living, schooling, being are endless and hopefully inspiring. We are anxious to hear yours which will certainly feed our curiosity and life long growth. We will show you around our state of Maine and its wealth of industry often based on resources like sea products, trees, ponds and rivers and 4 seasons weather. We are a short 3 hour bus ride to Boston and New Hampshire and Vermont are easy day trips.

The home has two kitchens and two bathrooms and is situated on 4 acres with over a hundred acres near that you can walk, hike or bike. We are on an island so you can access water for winter views or join a local ice fishing enthusiast if you make new friends.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are five miles off route one which has an array of fun activities, museums, outdoor exploration ops, shopping, etc. It is the main thoroughfare from Florida to the northern part of Maine. There are many beaches, thousands of lakes and islands to explore by foot, bike and kayaks we have here. There are a few local taxis and a great bus system to Boston, New York and other parts of Maine on a limited schedule but services the town next to us and we are willing to pick you up. Housemates here run to town frequently should you come without a car and you can get to things by bicycle.

    We have internet access but no cable tv (you will be engaged with life here, no doubt!)

    We are a middle aged couple and college aged son who may drop in at home on college summer break. We have a small jack russell terrier and a black cat. Both are quite entertaining and endearing. Hope you don't mind being adopted.
