One very friendly indoor cat that never leaves the house.
So far, except for a wonderful seven-week ~10,000 mile journey across to the west coast and back in our minivan "Class B- camper", we've primarily boondocked up and down the east coast en route between visits to family. Pennsylvania rest areas have been great spots to stop for some free sleep time. We've also overnighted at Walmarts, Truck Stops, friends driveways, and national forests.
Our primary travel "rig" is just an ordinary minivan fitted with removable window covers, raised bed with storage underneath, cooler and porta-potty that provides us easy mobility and parking while traveling long distances (across the country and back, for example). We do have a 22' travel trailer that we occasionally use for longer stays closer to home but love the flexibility offered by our home-conversion "Class B-" :)
We had a very relaxed and pleasant two nights with Mainah, while we attended a wedding and explored Brunswick and Harpswell, and fit in a quick shopping spree at Freeport. We strongly recommend Mainah to anyone who is wanting to visit this area.
Nice safe neighborhood
Close to town that has a lot of restaurants and things to do
Hosts were friendly and replied back quickly
Mainah were friendly hosts and we enjoyed our stay. It was lovely to chat with like-minded travellers and exchange ideas. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe. Thank you very much for your great hospitality.
First night on the road as we headed south and our very first boondocking experience - Mainah was a great host couple we would highly recommend! Kind, friendly and very knowledgeable about smart, affordable travelling. Their tips, directions (and even maps!) became important staples on our journey from northern Nova Scotia to South Carolina. Thanks again Mainah!
We stayed with Mainah for 2 nights over Halloween this year. They are very welcoming and we were very comfortable at their house. We bought some candy to give out, so we got to enjoy the trick or treaters, and the trick or treaters loved getting extra candy at one stop! Had some great travel conversations with him, and when we asked he gave us some great tips about what to check out. Among his recommendations we made it to Land's End and Cape Elizabeth - both awesome and the sort of place we enjoy :) Thank you! Hopefully we see you again somewhere out there!
Mainah are two great people. I arrived in a middle of a heatwave (90F +) and had trouble with hooking up the power to my trailer. My wife was scorched, the dogs were panting but he did not give up till we had the power working and the Air Conditioning going. Great place to visit, LL Bean is only a few minutes away and worth a visit.
We really enjoyed our time with Mainah! They were incredibly welcoming, helped us find fun and interesting restaurants and sites in the Portland, ME area, and were so great to our kids. We all felt very welcomed and right at home. The space was perfect for our little camper, very level, and we slept great. A really great experience all around.
We had the opportunity to stay here a couple of nights and our hosts were terrific & very knowledgeable of the area. We appreciated the use of electrical & would recommend anyone to try this area, situated to any number of wonderful attractions. We have a small 20ft. motorhome which fit nicely into the driveway location.
