You are always welcome at Alpacaville. Now in beautiful Maine, where our alpacas enjoy the incredible beauty of the mountains of the High Peaks Region. The Chateau trailer is very clean, cozy and comfortable. Perfect for an adventure getaway.
Yes, the chateau is a camper. The camper though has an incredible view of the mountains and is surrounded by our wonderful array of animals. Usually the alpacas roam free around our house, camper and barn as do the chickens, ducks and the turkey. The goats can be trouble makers as they roam free as well so keep your car doors closed! The camper itself is very clean and original and has running water, electricity, and a bathroom. Remember it is an older RV, not a five star hotel, but we do our best to keep it in working order.
The chateau is all for you of course, but I'm sure most of your time at Alpacaville will be spent exploring the 96 acres or taking selfies with the alpacas. You will have full access to the property and the barn, feel free to talk to the animals or take a hike in the woods. Several special places for you to visit out in the woods would be the little fish pond, the ancient "Sugar Mama" maple tree, and "Mawe Tatu" vista point.
We also have an AT&T micro cell tower that lets anyone that uses AT&T within a 60 foot radius of it to use their phones, wifi closer to the house will work as well. We are working on that for the chateau.
My favorite line when guests arrive is simply this, "we're here if you need us, and we'll dissapear if you don't."
Pet owners. We do have two dogs that roam freely around the property as well. One male and one female, both mongrels. They are both older now, each over ten years old, but still quite active. Bouncer, the male, will enjoy running with friends and although he barks at strangers he is quite passive. Tibby, the female, a smaller besenji mix may get testy with other female dogs as she feels this is her territory. She mostly stays indoors and we can always separate her if needed.
We also have five wonderful children. They are very respectful of our guests. In the past some of our guests have had children, which has always been an added bonus for them as well as our children.
There are no real set house rules. We hope that our guests will leave the chateau and property as they found it. We do like to keep rubbish separate from any recyclables. Please be respectful of our animals, our children and the chateau. Thank you!
My name is Jeff. I am an artist and an alpaca farmer. My wife Maureen and I decided that we would add something a little foreign (the alpacas) to the property, bringing a sense of peace and calm to our sometimes hectic lives here in the United States. Having traveled throughout Europe and Central America, staying in hostels, hotels or with friends I can appreciate the idea of connecting with regular people rather than staying at a resort. I would rather talk to the locals than to sit at the pool. Hopefully we can bring that type of experience to others. We are here if you need us or hidden if you do not.
