Things to know:

Powder House Hill Cottage is a side-by-side duplex - we live on the other side of the AIRBNB!

Cottage is on a private dirt road right off a main road. it is plowed and sanded in Winter. Expect possible snow or ice November through April and mud in Mud Season March-April. Easily passable with 2wd year round -- you just might not want to bring your Lamborghini.

When snow conditions are just right, the snowmobiles come zipping down Powder House Hill - mostly on weekends and sometimes as late as 10pm- its fun to watch the enjoyment they are having but can be loud.

Mom to three.... became an RN after acquiring a degree in English Literature at the University of Maine at Farmington. .. I now spend my free time reading, hanging out with my kids and extended family, visiting my grown-up children in Boston, travelling, personal development, taking classes, and DIY projects. I love meeting new people and I am hoping to share my love for Farmington with people who come stay here. I speak German because I was an Exchange Student for a year in Germany. From this experience abroad, came my love of travelling, meeting people, and my dream of opening a Youth Hostel in America. Well -- Powder House Hill Cottage and now Bella Farmhouse is the closest I can get to this dream at the moment! Not exactly a hostel....but a way to provide hospitality to travellers of all ages in an off-the-beaten path place! Thank you so much for your interest in Powder House Hill Cottage and Bella Farmhouse!!!
