Anneli Carter-Sundqvist, Homesteading Hostel Owner

Name: Anneli Carter-Sundqvist 

Occupation: Homesteader, Hostel owner 

Place of Residence:  Deer Isle, Maine

Background and Personal History: Anneli lives with her husband Dennis year-round on a highly self-sufficient, off-the-grid homestead. In the summer, they run the Deer Isle Hostel, providing budget accommodation, positive-impact living education and a unique experience for hundreds of travelers each year.

Anneli and Dennis grow and keep a whole year’s supply of food without a refrigerator. They provide their own building material, garden amendments, medicine and energy using island resources and great creativity. In 2013, they were designated The Homesteader of the Year by MOTHER EARTH NEWS and the Best Budget accommodation in the Down East Magazine. Anneli's new book, A Homesteader's Year on Deer Isle, was published earlier this spring.

More Places to Find Anneli on the Web:  To learn more about Anneli's and Dennis' homesteading hostel — and to schedule a visit — go to the Deer Isle Hostel website.
