Eureka is a secluded, quiet, artsy hideaway with an elegant private studio and comfortable living quarters. It is surrounded by farms, forests, lakes, and fresh air. We offer affordable lodging for travelers, residencies for artists, studio rentals, and private instruction. We can accommodate small groups or individuals wanting to retreat from the outside world. Our venue is a great space to focus on projects, rest and relax, or use as a base for exploring southern Maine.

We are a comfortable distance away from the touristy areas but not too far from some of the most picturesque destinations in the state. The mountains, the coast, the lakes, and Portland's downtown are all equal distances away. We are near historic Paris Hill and White Mountain National Forest and about an hour's drive from Portland.
