We had our home built in 2011. We both operated small businesses from 1980's to 2005, but now work for private businesses in allied healthcare. Crys likes to make crafts and paint. Jim and Crys both enjoy cooking, organic gardening, and just about any outdoor activity from mtn biking, small boat sailing, kayaking, hiking, camping, downhill/x-c skiing or just relaxing at our home with a microbrew beer or glass of wine.

A great place to stay on the banks of the river. The upstairs room was great with own TV and an Ensuite bathroom. The cats were great and Jim and Crystal are neat people. We would certainly stay there again if we were in the area.

This is an above-and-beyond Airbnb. The bathroom is attached to the bedroom, which is super convenient, and Jim and Crystal have all the nice finishing touches - water glasses, toothpaste, tissues and paper towels - all the things that you take for granted when they're lacking at other Airbnb's! The complimentary breakfast and coffee made it even better!

Jim and Crystal have a wonderful house in a quiet neighborhood. They are very accommodating and helpful, and gave us great tips on local places to eat. They also provided a great Continental breakfast. We loved our interactions with them and recommend their place to everyone going through the area.

Jim and Crystal were absolutely fantastic hosts. Everything was clean, comfortable and close enough to places to visit. We were happy not just with the technical details of the house, its surroundings and so on, but mainly with the interaction we had with our hosts: warm, thoughtful and wonderfully interesting people. We highly recommend to anyone travelling in the area to stay at their place, Amos and Hadas

This was a great location for exploring coastal Maine. Jim & Crys were really accommodating and gave us lots of recommendations and maps. They provided us with everything we needed and had lots of little touches like extra toiletries. It was really easy to find and there was lots of choice for breakfast...the pumpkin muffins were yummy! Thanks for having us!

Jim and Crystal’s home was a lovely gem on the river’s edge! We were in town for a wedding in nearby Portsmouth, and their dollhouse was just as charming as the town. We were able to sit down after a delicious continental breakfast and chat which was nice before heading out. Highly recommended in terms of comfort, location, and hospitality! Wishing you well, Natalie and Maria
