LAST HOUSE ON POINT IN CASCO BAY

Freeport House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 8, fully equipped including linens.

Our home, the last house on a point of land, has been our peaceful summer home since 1986. Decks on both sides afford both an east and west view of the water. The rocky shoreline has a few sandy places for sunbathing and swimming depending on the changing of the tide. We enjoy harbor seals, blue herons, osprey, gulls, and we've even seen eagles!

The interior has a comfortable, open floor plan downstairs with full bath and laundry. There are four bright, cozy bedrooms and a full bath upstairs. Two of the bedrooms open directly onto the balcony which makes it possible to lie abed and view the water beyond.

In addition to the usual amenities, we leave the kitchen stocked with spices, condiments, baking ingredients, and canned goods with the understanding that whomever uses the last of anything replaces it for incoming guests. There is wireless internet and basic cable for 2 TV's.

Our best recommendation is that folks keep coming back. Check out our guest reviews!

'Thea' has been our summer home since 1986. We are the last house on a point of land. Decks on both sides afford both an east and west view of the water. The rocky shoreline has a few sandy places for sunbathing and swimming depending on the changing of the tide. We enjoy ospreys, gulls, and we've even seen eagles feeding on the flats at low tide.

Our home is a modernized Cape with a comfortable, open floor plan with a downstairs laundry and full bath and four compact bedrooms upstairs. Two of the bedrooms open directly onto the balcony which makes it possible to lie abed and watch the water beyond. We have basic cable for a TV upstairs and downstairs and wireless internet.

In addition to the usual amenities we leave the kitchen stocked with spices, condiments, and canned goods with the understanding that whomever uses the last of anything replaces it for incoming guests.

Our best recommendation is that folks keep coming back. Check out the reviews to capture the flavor of our guests' experiences.

Home Away from Home

Thea is different from all other rentals we have known. When you are there it feels like you are the luckiest people in the world to know the folks who own this place and call it their home. It feels like your home, too, as everything you could want to relax in comfort is there. At the same time, it takes you far away from your usual world, as Thea is perched on a tiny island at the edge of the sea! How fabulous to see ithe ocean all around you, all the time, out of every window, and to hear it lull you to sleep at night. We have been especially appreciative of the detailed guidebooks the owner's provde to answer every question you may have about the house and the many attractions in the vicinity. Every time we go back, the owners have added amenities and renovations - this time, WiFi and cable access for computers, new gas heating system, and an additional patio on the front so you can enjoy contemplating the sea from yet another direction! We've had great dinners with friends around the big table and quiet days of solitude, tourist days up and down the coast and quiet nights by the fireplace; canoeing around the islands and walking around the point. The creativity Flying Point Island inspires has been awesome: we write, we play instruments, we take photographs; we laugh, we sing, we dance. Bliss.

GREAT FAMILY TRIP LOCATION!

This is a welcoming home. We were a family of 6 adults and we never felt like we were cramped. We really were able to bond as a family.

The home was well stocked with games, puzzles and starter provisions! The tides were navigable and never an issue for us.

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful family home!

Lovely, well-equipped property. Peaceful and quiet. The owner was very helpful and it's obvious that they take great pride in their home. We'll be back.
Owner's Response: We are pleased with the review and the reference to our taking pride in our home. We want folks who rent our home to have a good time and find our home comfortable and well equipped. We have many who return year after year.

The Way Life Should Be

What a magical spot! I have been passing through Freeport all my life on the way to somewhere else in Maine. This year my family decided to explore this area that a dear family friend always loved. We explored the nearby park by bike, took long walks in the afternoon, shopped one day and took a short trip to Boothbay Harbor to visit our family and friends. This truly feels like home when you arrive and is equipped with everything you need to cook and relax. We were a little concerned about the tides and accessing the causeway, but if you plan carefully around high tide, you will be fine. We found we could not access the house one hour before or after high tide. We were cooking in so this did not impact our dinner plans, but something to keep in mind. The owner carefully answered all our questions before we arrived and called us at the house to see if we had any other questions. Thank you for a very memorable stay and we hope to stay again!

Best Rental Property on Southern Maine Coast

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 29, 2012
  • Stayed: Mar 2012
I live in the Portland area and have spent my life vacationing all over Maine. I just spent a weekend at Thea - after researching every property from Camden to Kittery. Being local, I was able to actually visit the four or five places that looked best online. Thea was hands down the most spectacular location and I booked it immediately. Three things you won’t get from looking at the profile online:

1. House - The house itself if much nicer that it looks in the pictures, both inside and out. It is a beautiful, updated, spotlessly clean, charming cape.
2. Privacy – Most of the other places in this price range are actually stacked very closely with other cottages a few feet away. Thea is alone at the end of its own, very quiet, rocky peninsula. (Only one other neighbor.) It was a very, very peaceful experience.
3. Open water & private point – More than any of the other places I visited, Thea is closest to being on the open water. And rather than having a few hundred feet (or less) on the waterfront, you literally have your own private point sticking out into Casco Bay.

If a charming cape, feet from the crashing waves with several hundred yards of picturesque, rocky Maine coastline at the end of your own private point sounds like the stay you are looking for – you won’t find it anywhere else that I visited before making my choice. And, you are 5 minutes from LL Bean and Freeport or 25 minutes from all of the shops and restaurants in Portland if you are interested in that experience. Thea is wonderful. You will love your time there!
Owner's Response: We are delighted to have such a positive response to a place we love so much. The only thing we would dispute is the "crashing waves". We do have some wave action but we are in Casco Bay so it is not like open ocean. What we especially enjoy is the sound of lapping waves when falling off to sleep at night.

Close to Portland, Freeport shopping (home of LLBean), Bowdoin College, museums in Bath and Brunswick, and many state parks and beaches. Our home, almost surrounded by water and at the high tides with the new moon and the full moon, briefly becomes an island. Under most circumstances this does not impact your visit. Once in a while though you have to use our tide charts to plan when you will leave or return.
