Freeport House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

We offer a home base with privacy and charm near Freeport. Set on 8 ½ wooded acres just three miles from Freeport Village and LL Bean, five miles from the ocean, twenty minutes from Portland, fifteen minutes from Brunswick.

The home is fully furnished, with three bedrooms, a gourmet kitchen, fireplace, spacious deck with hot tub, well-maintained gardens, garage, cable, and wireless internet. Even a baby grand piano! The master suite with double vanity is at one end of the house, the other two bedrooms are at the other end with their own shared bathroom.

Ideal home base for summer vacation, foliage season, or winter getaways.

This is a peaceful, private setting - you can't see or hear the neighbors. The view in every direction, including from the oversized deck, is gardens and trees. We have deer and turkey sightings regularly. The stars at night are brilliant, and especially wonderful viewed from the hot tub.

Enjoy the coast of Maine without paying waterfront rates, and spread out and relax in this 2,000 square foot property.

From our guest book:

'a great house and a great location'

'a lovely home in a beautiful setting'

'we'll have many wonderful memories of our time here in this beautiful, peaceful setting'

'this is one vacation that we will remember for years to come'

''Wow' is all we can say…this is one vacation that we will remember for years to come…wish we could stay longer.'

'We come to Maine every fall and rent a house…this was one of the best – especially enjoyed the hot tub.'

'The beds were very comfy. The kitchen had everything we needed.'

About Owner

We built this house in 1997. Circumstances have taken me to Oregon, but I plan to keep the house and return to it. So this isn't just a rental property -- it's my home. I'm pleased to be able to share it, and it's a house that really should be full of life all the time.

I work in healthcare marketing and public relations, which is what brought me out here. We run a small wine brokerage on the side, bringing Oregon and Washington wines back to Maine.

We had two dogs when we lived there, and that's why we're pet-friendly. I've not had problems in 3 years of renting, except for one party. So I'm keeping it pet-friendly.

Everything you see on the exterior, from the foundation walls out, I did. Deck, plantings, etc. I'm fortunate to have my brother as my property manager, and he's keeping everything up for me.

I love Oregon, but it has made me appreciate the pace and privacy in Maine. People are packed pretty tightly here, whereas at my Maine home I can't even see the neighbors. I think that privacy is one of the best features of the house.

Owner purchased this house in 1997

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sent directly to me:



We had a wonderful time in your home. The house was welcoming and comfortably furnished. We did a lot of cooking in and found the kitchen well stocked. The serene location was awesome. When the snow arrived we were able to enjoy it in the hot tub and found that even when the power went out we had flashlights and prompt snow plow assistance the next morning. Stellar, thanks. We highly recommend this home.

A Most Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We were guests at this wonderful coastal Maine retreat for a four week period earlier this Spring. We arrived with snow on the ground, and all was prepared for our arrival. We made a fire in the wonderful fireplace, and relaxed in the stillness of the Maine woods...what a wonderful location. Close to Freeport, Brunswick and Portland, the setting was perfect. We shopped at Whole Foods in Portland, cooked our meals in this cozy kitchen, and ate our meals in the breakfast nook watching the trees / wind / snow throughout our stay. We saw deer and wild turkeys as well as a dark starry sky and even a full moon! The beds were comfortable, and the garage provided protection during some stormy days. A perfect way for us to visit family close by and have a wonderful Easter dinner for all. Thank you Wayne for sharing such a wonderful getaway!!

Freeport Rental

  • 5 of 5
This rental home was more than we could ask for. It was very clean, spacious and worked well for our vacation. We had three couples and one baby and the place was more than big enough. The pictures on the site don't do it justice. The house is set back in the woods and away from any neighbors. The hot tub on the deck was great for lounging and viewing the beautiful scenery. We would def stay here again the next time we're in Freeport.

Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our winter stay here! The house was absolutely perfect... it was spotless, well-maintained, and there are tons of windows to view the surrounding nature. We stayed during a blizzard and the house stayed toasty warm, not a draft even with the winds and snow blowing wildly outside, you can tell how well-built this place is. Being able to pull my car into the garage was a huge bonus, and we were plowed literally minutes after the storm was finished. The house is so comfortable and well thought out... the kitchen had everything you could possibly need, including a crockpot and dishwasher! I loved too that they had the little things some rentals don't, ex: dish soap, hand soap, paper towels, saran wrap, etc. We could arrive, unpack, and be on vacation! We also brought our golden retriever with us and she spent her days staring out the big french door windows. She loved it so much too. We went on lots of walks and saw plenty of deer. It was also great to be such a short drive from Portland where there are tons of fabulous restaurants. The best part was that even though you are minutes away from all the conveniences you could need, the house was completely private, surrounded by the beautiful Maine woods. No neighbors, just peace and quiet. The perfect winter retreat! We can't wait to go back...

Incredible Getaway in the Woods

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely enjoyed our stay at the Clark House. It truly is a home away from home. So comfortable with many, many amenities. Conveniently located to all of our day trip destinations. So relaxing and tranquil. It was the perfect home base for our Maine vacation. The description/photos of this property are modest. It was a pleasant surprise when we arrived. We never anticipated such a well maintained and spacious location. It was beyond expectations. We would definitely stay again, and recommend to others.

Owner's Response: Wow, another renter says the pictures don't do it justice! So I guess I need to take some more pictures. So glad you enjoyed your stay. We're very proud of the house, and my property manager is first class.

this is the perfect home to enjoy all the coast

  • 5 of 5
the property is immaculate, private, roomy, and has all the comforts of home. cozy enough for a romantic getaway; spacious enough for a family gathering. far from the bustling crowd, yet close to all the activities on the coast, we would recommend this rental to all ages, and will certainly return, perhaps to enjoy all the cross-country skiing opportunities in the winter. we loved the Maritime Museum in Bath, the sandy beaches at Popham, numerous hikes both coastal and inland, especially the `Giant Stairs` out on the peninsula. gained a few extra pounds on the fine seafood everywhere.,..,.., thnx for opening your home to us!!!

R&R in Maine

R&R in Maine
  • 5 of 5
I decided on a little R&R time and 2 of my children were also able to go. They selected Maine to be our destination and they could not have selected anything better! As always, once the destination was decided upon- I went to Home Away and found, what turned out to be one of the best rentals to date. The house is nestled in the woods for those seeking quiet, however close enough to just about anything you could need. The house is fully equipped- just pack your clothes. I can't even begin to say how much we enjoyed the house and the hot tub was an added bonus. The pictures truly do not do this property justice. If you are heading to the Freeport region- this is the place to stay. I would personally like to thank Wayne for sharing this beautiful home. I hope to return one day and experience a different season!
