  • Description


    We live in mid coast Maine with our small dog and fatty cat. We own a second residence across the street from our home. In this second residence are two rental units and Elisa's personal design studio- . Elisa is looking for a fairly skilled tailor/seamstress to help with some design projects, and gardening help. Help with gardening/stacking wood and other small maintenance tasks would also be needed.

    Additionally we are looking for some woodworking/carpentry/painting skills to help us with a variety of small projects.
    Elisa's studio and your living quarters are in the Victorian house across the street from our home. We are two blocks from the beach, and one block to the village with cafes, grocers and eateries. The house is also nestled in with the campus of a well known marine museum.
    If this sounds like something you are interested in , please let us know!
    Regards, Elisa

    There is so much to do here on the mid coast of Maine. The weather is gorgeous and the air is clean. Festivals and events abound each week during the spring, summer and fall....there’s so many to choose from. Two local weekly farmers markets, art markets, farm days, kayaking, sailing, beachcombing, fresh local food and seafood. Your weekends are yours and I’m always happy to take you on adventures, or get you where you want to go. A bicycle is available for town riding, or if you have a car, there are some fabulous scenic off road trails and bike paths Within an easy drive. Of course just relaxing with your reading list is great too! With an easy 5 minute walk from our house you can hike through peaceful woods gathering ripe wild blackberries, blueberries and raspberries, or stroll along the beach and wade through tide pools at low tide. The beach offers great swimming also. Close to Acadia, Camden, and lots of lighthouses!
