The cool mural that wraps around the side of the building sure is funky, but thanks to artist Flynn Costello, we also have a colorful mural of native Maine birds, and boy does it have character!

Enterprise is on the ground level, and is accessible by wheelchair and ADA friendly. 4 full-sized bunk beds makes it a perfect room for up to 8 people, or 4 if you just like to sleep with a little room to sprawl! Easy access to the lobby and kitchen too!
The Blue Stairwell
We kept one of the original stairwells in this old building, but updated it with some popping' blue paint. Why not? This stairwell also has a chalkboard wall leading all the way up to the 4th floor if you want to add some art of your own!
Chalk Art Wall
Some creative guests have left some fun, wacky, and heartfelt doodles on the chalkboard wall in the stairwell.
