    Welcome to the vibrant, energizing FALL that nourishes and energizes us in Northern New England. Come join us to explore the beautiful coast of Maine and to learn about gardening, foraging, healthy cooking, birdwatching, storytelling and sharing..... We will pay a wage for hard work and personal energy invested in our purpose but with COVID issues back on the horizon, we may not be able to engage you in business activities and may be phasing out soon. We are old school New Englanders who work hard and play (healthy) hard. If you can think on your feet, work independently often and take the lead on projects that need organizing and rethinking, please reach out. Don't come here trying to balance a full time job online, helping us and a vacation in Maine. We need folks who will plug in here and enjoy lots of local excusions with us as days permit. Most really love the vibe and can see the wealth of fun and opportunities for connection and creativity here.

    We are happy to compensate you minimum wage for hours contributed to our venture here with your SKILLED talents hours a day. Again, as COVID has applied new constraints we may be keeping workaways out of that part of our home energy and phasing out any guest/business activities. That said, someone focused and content to be here and invest time and intention on enjoying our little paradise in Midcoast Maine is best match. Focus, flexibility and self advocating with clear communications about your intention while being with us is very important in determining match. Your "work" hours will range from 2-5. We are URGENTLY in need of office admin, marketing and carpentry/repair/maintenance skills. Again, lots of organizing, beautifying and upgrading systems opportunities. We need two week minimum to justify this expense. We think you will find it more fun than work often. Can't wait to support each other in our journeys!

    We are an interesting (or so we hear...ha ha) middle aged couple enjoying our lives on a little Midcoast Maine island. Come join us in creating, caring for and improving our lovely log eclectic home in the woods while our resident “furry friends” nurture you. Help needed now to rebuild for summer....not for the timid or phone addicted but the well balanced, self aware and adventurous. 💪😀

    Seasonally in Summer and Fall we entertain guests in our funky spaces such as “tiny house” and “teepee”. Our reviews really speak of our authentic desire to meet people and share experience, support and fun and often inspiring stories. Hope to meet you soon and to help us with off season upgrades, cleaning, organizing and planning. We can use your help which is often disguised as fun and life changing. We keep our place clean and tidy for our enjoyment and unexpected guest who might contact us and keep our “boat afloat”.

    We are looking for hard working, creative, organized and empathic souls to join with us. We

    Hi! We are a healthy, COVID compliant family looking to carefully and conscienciously continue the Workaway relationship win/win we love so much. Come to our coastal Maine paradise but be prepared to work...and explore. your space will be a comfy private room with a shared bath and shared kitchen. covid we need to be extra cautious and in agreement that trips to town at this point should be limited and masking and social distancing a must.

    We just finished our sixth summer carefully inviting guests during COVID to our eclectic space. We spent the winter months on our own Workaway adventure. Just got back from AFRICA a few weeks ago! We are a couple with three grown boys who enjoy gardening, mechanical and repurposing crafts, cooking, the out of doors and good conversation. 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, cleaning, cleaning (getting my drift? others have not) and decluttering..... See our priorities for a minimum wage pay above. We need self motivated, hard working and "think on your feet" types with a healthy relationship with your phone. We have high expectations that our workaways will communicate needs, advocate for selves and take responsibility for themselves in relationship.....lifelong work! There is no time for defensiveness and blame. Yes, it has been well engrained in us especially here in the states. Are you open to growing and learning about yourself? Bring it on! :)

    In exchange we will share bikes, kayaks and enthusiasm for getting out in nature on local trails, river, coastline and lakes.
    We love long chats on the bird watching (and squirrel dodging) porch, walks in the lovely 100 acre wood all around us, planning a back yard lobster and/or vegan dinner, taking a spontaneous bike ride on trail next door, or roaming the property for more marshmallow roasting sticks.

    Our foci are healthy and sustainable living practices...want to learn about creating mobile tiny homes, foraging, recycled materials based art projects, healthy cooking, making kombucha, herbal remedies?

    We have a very eclectic, 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 may provide some meals during the time you are here and we ask Workaways to have a few staples to feed selves when we don't. Food is always flowing here and we invite workaways to share cooking duty as well as favorite recipes.

    We appreciate your artistic flair, your organizational skills, your energy of collaboration, your focused work ethic and your curiosity! You will love your down time to explore coastal Maine or just rest up and renew.

    You will need to be good at advocating for yourself and also not someone who cannot take direction or tends to be defensive. If you see the win win of learning from each other but understand that the host has ways to do things that work for him/her, you will love it here. You will work and play hard and some longer days than others (total hours the same) but will love the evening campfires, deep conversations and serenity and beauty that abound.
    We seek people who are SERIOUS about social distancing and will mask up in close spaces which is not super often but as needed and enjoy lots of acres of mask free stretch out space. Luckily, things are shifting with COVID and we will follow these new freedoms with caution and care.

    Welcome to Maine. We look forward to helping you love it here as much as we do.

    Hope to see you soon.
    We hope to join forces and curious minds soon.
    Cary and Huggy

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    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.

    Accommodation is either a room in main home or possibly a tent in the warm months. 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.

    Algo más...

    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.
