This information is for anyone who needs to find a place to stay for the Maine Unschooling Mini Conference which will be held September 19 2015.  I did my best to share the information I was told or sent, but please double check everything with the establishment you book your stay with. The fall is a busy time in Maine, so I do suggest you book early!  - Laurie
