Freeport House Rental Photos and Description
House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8-15)
This oceanfront home boasts a private beach and mooring and an outdoor pizza oven that overlooks the bay & islands. Have a brush in with a local shopping legend and come spend a few days in a house featured in the Spring 2011 LL Bean Home Catalog! ! ! Breathtaking sunrises abound for the early birds. Or for the night owls, the moon rises are nothing short of spectacular as the moonbeams dance upon the sea or search for your favorite constellations amidst the milky way above.
Just a 5 minute drive to Wolf Neck Farm and all of its activities, a 10 minute paddle to the delicious Harraseeket Lunch & Lobster or a 15 minute walk to Wolf Neck Woods State Park, any adventure is just minutes away. Freeport Village is just 5 miles with 100's of outlet stores.
Come stay at an idyllic private neighborhood on the beautiful coast of Maine. The property is located on the southern tip of Wolf's Neck in Freeport, Maine. Only 5 miles from Freeport Village, home of LL Bean and 100+ outlet stores including Ralph Lauren, Cole Haan, Thomas Mosher and The Gap. Restaurants range from pubs to chowder houses to exquisite dining at such places as the Harraseeket Inn. For a little more excitement, Portland, Maine is half an hour away with its happenin' historic Old Port, Merrill Auditorium, AHL Hockey, AAA Baseball and a plethora of great eateries from local brew pubs to fine dining and everything in between.
On the premises, a wood-fired pizza oven faces the ocean and is the focal point for many a memorable summer's eve. Children and adults alike can be their own chefs and enjoy food, family and beautiful Maine sunsets over Casco Bay. Enjoy the beauty and convenience of being pretty much dead center of mainland Casco Bay; you are looking right at Eagle Island w/ the recently renovated Admiral Peary's island residence (a great day trip by boat) and Halfway Rock Lighthouse (halfway point of Casco Bay) just to Southwest of that. A must stop on the way back would be to Dolphin Cove Marina & Restaurant for arguably the best bowl of Lobster or Fish Chowder in the world. If you want to drive less than an hour for a day trip to the southwest is the long, sandy beaches of Old Orchard, Ferry, Crescent, Scarborough or Higgins Beach or the exquisite Popham Beach and and nearby historical forts less than an hour to the Northeast.
