|Minimum Stay||6 - 7 nights|
Our cabin provides rustic simplicity and the tranquil charm of life in the Maine woods overlooking the water.
In the MASTER BEDROOM, the combination of fresh Maine air and a comfortable Queen-size bed with patchwork quilt will have you sleeping soundly. You have 2 dressers for your jeans and t-shirts (all the wardrobe you'll need). In the GUEST ROOM, your guests or children will feel cozy in the built-in twin beds with a dresser. They have 2 bookshelves with an assortment of summer reading. There is a 'napping blanket' in every room just in case the need arises. The BATHROOM provides your basic needs with a sink, a toilet, and a hot shower. In the LIVING ROOM, there is a double sofa bed and 2 rustic cottage chairs. A picture window overlooks the bay and evening sunsets. For those cool days, you can make a fire in the glass-front woodstove, or just turn on the built-in propane heater. If the day is warm, open the doors at each end and the new screened windows, and you'll be comfortable. A countertop with stools separates the kitchen from the living room. The compact KITCHEN is fully furnished with a 4-burner gas stove and oven, sink and refrigerator. There is also a toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker and a complete set of dishes, pots and pans, glasses and utensils.
A small TV/VCR and a drawer full of a variety of videos as well as an AM/FM radio/CD player and a well-stocked bookshelf will satisfy your basic relaxation needs when you're indoors. Outdoors, you can lounge in the Sky Chair, in the hammock or on the deck with a good book. If you prefer, either take a walk to Wolf Neck Farm and Wolf Neck State Park for delightful views of Casco Bay or hop in one of our 2 canoes or one of our 2 kayaks and explore the natural delights of Harraseeket Bay.
If you're ready for more, you're only 3 miles from L.L. Bean and over 150 upscale outlet stores. Fresh seafood abounds in Freeport from gourmet to New England classics, with even more offerings in neighboring Portland and Brunswick.
We are a retired couple of teachers who enjoy the outdoors and the company of others.
Bonnie Bradford purchased this cabin in 1967
We first bought our cottage in the woods of Freeport for a place to escape the winters of dormitory living. Later, our cottage became a place to bring our children and then our grandchildren for some special time together in a natural setting.
Our cottage is a place to come for quiet rambles and escape from the hectic life in the outside world. There are, however, many opportunities to find a variety of entertainments a very short distance away.
Upon our return to Arizona, we want to thank you for our stay in your cozy cabin. What a location in Freeport, a short drive to stores and Wolf Neck State Park but isolated enough to only hear the birds and your waterfall. The views from your cabin are beautiful - perfectly framed from your hammock. We cherished the kayaking and walks to the farm.
We stayed two weeks at the little cabin in the woods, enjoying the waterfall when it rained and canoeing in the bay when the tide was up. The little rustic cabin is completely furnished and offers everything - a deck for morning coffee, a big picnic table, a hammock and a sky chair, two sea kayaks and a canoe and a convenient location. We enjoyed the area as well as the house, including the Maritime Museum in Bath, the art museum at Bowdoin College, the Farnsworth Museum to see the Wyeth paintings, and the nearby Olson House where Andrew Wyeth painted Christina's World. Another highlight was the boat trip to Eagle Island to see Admiral Peary's home. The friendly owners met us there and gave us a tour around the property at the beginning of our visit. Highly recommended.
Just came back from a week stay at the cottage. It was a great experience. Fabulous location. The cabin is comfortable, clean and well stocked. The owners are helpful and detail oriented, making sure that you have all the necessary information about the house and the area. We cooked outside in the fire pit under a full moon. Had a beautiful waterfall after some rain. Went on canoe excursion during high tide. Watched the sunset from the patio. Although the cottage is in a very secluded location, Freeport is just a few minutes away. Thank you!
After a recent rain, the waterfall on the property was quite active, which provided a beautiful soundtrack to our stay. We spent the chilly evenings by the fire pit, and enjoyed long walks during the day. Freeport and Portland - good shopping and great food and drink - are a short drive away. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to reconnect with the outdoors and disconnect from overly busy and planned lives.
A great place to get away while having a multitude of options nearby. Cabin is small and rustic in a gorgeous setting. Enjoy the deck, firepit, waterfall or go down the hill to the river and canoe or kayak. A mile away is Wolf Neck State Park with great hiking and water views. Freeport is a short drive for meals and shopping. Don't miss Portland Head Lighthouse if you haven't been there.
We loved our stay at the cabin. I have a tough time relaxing but this place did the trick. It has everything you need. I took the sea kayak out a couple of times and took advantage of the fire pit as well at night. We started missing it as soon as we started driving away.
Bill and Bonnie were a delight to meet and they gave us a nice tour in and our of the property before our stay. We had no agenda but found our week filled will activities all around the area. We scheduled a few "do nothing but stay at the cottage" days though so we could soak in the beautiful surrounding. We'll be coming back.
Enjoyed the hospitality (and stories from Bill) upon our arrival. The cabin is very homey and comfortable enough. The wealth of information that Bonnie has there for all her guests was very helpful and appreciated. We had a wonderful time out in the bay with the canoe that is included with the rental of the cabin. Thanks for the use of your special little cabin in the woods, we had a great vacation.
