Why Cryptic House?

Since 2016 Cryptic House LLC has been revitalizing downtown Orono by breathing fresh life into centuries old buildings, and creating fabulous apartments and offices that are comfy, spectacular, home. We provide our tenants with luxurious living spaces, and friendly service that keeps them coming back for years.

Why should you rent a Cryptic House? Because we take pride in our buildings and keep them beautiful. Because we are responsive to our tenant’s needs and treat them with courtesy and respect. Because we love the environment so much we leased 2% of Cianbro’s community solar project in Hermon to source all of our properties electricity from renewable energy. Because we are quite simply the best housing firm in Orono.

We are 100% sold out through May 2023 but start showing apartments for the 2023-24 UMaine academic year on October 1st. We are also building 3 new 1BR apartments at the historic downtown mansion Whitney House and will start showing them late July or early August. Please visit our homepage frequently for updates or contact us at 877-4884 or macheson@cryptichouse.com to schedule a showing.
