Maine Creative Residency

Propose a dream for a time to rest and recharge this Summer with a selected group of creatives.  There are 5 spots/rooms available at different rates.  See rates and how to send a proposal below.

Whether you're a group of artists looking for a place to reflect or rest from your work, or a group of small creative business owners looking to recharge, this 1854 home in beautiful midcoast maine can be your opportunity for a precious re-set.  Each room has a tiny desk, and there is an option to add use of creative flex space to work across the street in our neighbors old brick school house on the river.  I can connect you with local artists and activities if you'd like some direction.

Write, photograph, dance, sketch, sleep, fish, kayak, swim, sail, hike, brainstorm, inspire, refine, rest, nap, cook, play music, bike, picnic, drive tour....

FEES

We differentiate the value of the residency fees according to the characteristics of the accommodation. By differentiating the fees we are establishing a more fair criterion between residents, and also enabling those with fewer incomes to come to our place.

Work Exchange suggestions welcome! (house repair, landscaping, etc)
