The Wheelhouse concept was born in 2010 at the Bradford Mill in Concord, MA.   The idea was simple:  to provide work-from-home professionals the opportunity to work in a more productive environment in the company of other creative people.  It has been a resounding success - there are now nearly 70 members who frequent our cafe, desks, and offices - and we hope the concept will be as well-received on MDI as it has been in Concord. Members can drop by any time and expect to find friends and associates from a diverse range of backgrounds.  The offices and desks provide a place to be productive, the conference room is perfect for hosting meetings, pitching ideas, and group brainstorming, and the cafe downstairs is a convenient place to kick back and share a good cup of coffee.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Wheelhouse Northeast Harbor community!



Do I have to deal with Fairpoint or Time Warner?

No! We supply broadband Internet and WiFi, Polycom phones with your own phone number, voicemail that sends you an email when a message arrives, printers, fax, and a conference room wired for video and audio.

Can I reserve the conference room in advance?

Yes. The conference room may be reserved up to 30 days in advance by Office and Desk members. Your booking request(s) should be directed to the Concierge who will evaluate the in-house demand level and inform you of the decision on the day of the request or shortly thereafter. 

Can a non-member reserve the conference room?

Yes, $50 per hour.  And if you are a local non-profit, we are likely to waive the fee because we like to support those doing good work in the community!

Can two people share an office or a desk?

That’s fine with us. There is a $300 per month charge (peak season) on top of the base Office or Desk membership for the second person.

Can I bring in my own furniture?

We prefer that you not bring in your own furniture.  The Wheelhouse is already furnished and we prefer to maintain a consistent look and feel throughout the work space.  We will consider exceptions on a case-by-case basis.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept payment by check or credit card.  The Concierge will set you up when your membership starts.

What does it take to become a member?

Fill out the application form by clicking the big yellow button at the top of this page. We will follow up promptly to arrange a tour, answer any questions you may have, and see if we have a space available that meets your needs.
