The Barn on Pascal in Rockport, Maine

From tattered barn to exquisite Airbnb, here is an incredible renovation that will inspire hosts and guests alike. After years of vacationing in Maine, Peggy and Larry made Rockport their home and turned their attached barn into a stunning suite ready to welcome travelers to the MidCoast. The moment we walked into the space, we were smitten. Peggy’s design showed us just how incredible an Airbnb interior could be. A black and white designer, her creation was striking, intuitive, and oh so comfortable. Her attention to the textures, the lights, the furniture, even the smallest details coalesced into a space that was downright irresistible. As guests, we felt like we were living in a high-end design magazine. And as hosts, Peggy and Larry go out of their way to make each visitor feel special. Serendipitously, the day we interviewed them was the same day they received the Superhost designation from Airbnb. Few are as deserving. Peggy and Larry have created an exemplary Airbnb, and it’s a privilege to share the story of how The Barn on Pascal came to be. Enjoy their video!

Hi there! We’re Erin and Jay, and we’re so happy you’re visiting bnbNomad. We discovered Airbnb in the spring of 2017 when we embarked on a nomadic adventure exploring North America. With our lanky pup Odin in tow, we lived for a year in Airbnbs, working remotely during the day and soaking in our surroundings by night. From New England farms to Southwest cabins, our generous hosts and their distinctive homes made our adventures more incredible than we could have imagined. As avid Airbnb travelers, bnbNomad is our small way of giving back to a community we love. We share the hosting tricks we adore as guests, feature homes and destinations from our journeys, and give travelers around the world an inside look at the unique perspective Airbnb has to offer.
