About the Apartment~~
"Wide open" is first remark folks give upon entering the apartment at Wicket Good Road. Except for the one bedroom and bath, the home is one large room with loosely separated kitchen, dining and living areas.
Summer in Maine is about "outside fun". So the house has a large deck for cooking on the grill and dining. The deck overlooks a very big lawn and gardens--and our Extreme Croquet Court. If interested we'd be happy to teach you this combination of miniature golf, billiards and chess. It's great summer fun.
Living Area- It rains in Maine and, once in a while, it's nice to have a cozy night at home even on vacation. (And, even though the ocean is just across the street - it does get buggy when the sun goes down. You will find this at anywhere in Maine, especially in mid June though July. August, not so bad.) There are couches, easy chair, a gas fireplace, air-conditioning, widescreen TV with plenty of movie channels. And the WIFI reception is excellent.
The Kitchen - kitchen is fully equipped for all your needs. All the dishes, pots, pans, and silverware are ready and waiting. We've tried to anticipate your needs - from lobster pot to that extra corkscrew. A supply of basic condiments and spices is stocked--so don't bother bringing those along. Brand new range/oven 2017. Yay
Dining area has seating for four inside.
Bedroom- one comfy, Queen bed. Dressers and closet (There's also an extra queen airbed that can be set up in the living room if you have kids or guests come to visit.)
The apartment bathroom has a shower.
The laundry room has a washer and dryer.
The apartment has air conditioning, Our part of Maine has changed climate wise since my youth. Growing up we used to have about 6 "Dog Days" each summer. The last two years have averaged about 20, so I had air conditioning installed. The home has two apartments, each with their own entrance.- I, Jack, your host, live in the other one, downstairs. I stay out of your hair and respect your privacy unless needed. I'll change a light bulb for you if needed.
Guests have access to the full apartment, gardens, lawn games and separate entrance. The only "shared" facility is the laundry (and I normally do mine on the days when the apartment is not rented)
A four night minimum stay is normally required but I will be happy to entertain requests.+ More
