Location, location, location! Come and enjoy the spectacular views of Maquoit Bay from our romantic cottage near Freeport, Maine. This is the perfect spot :
to write that best-seller you've been dreaming of....or maybe just read one
to.walk, bike,swim, or kayak off those extra lbs....or maybe go shopping instead.
to paint that abstract that's been kicking around in your head..or maybe just a paint by numbers.....
in any event, this place will inspire you....if only to get caught up on your sleep...
Feel free to entertain: outside with our gas grill, or inside, with dining seating for 8 and a fullyapplianced kitchen. How about some s'mores by the campfire (firewood provided), then off to sleep in one of our cozy bedrooms, with comfy, warm, quality linens (provided) accompanying. Awake to the most glorious sunrises in Maine, and plan your next adventure. We've got it all: shopping, recreational activities (see below), cultural excursions, and (did we mention) shopping?
Our property is centrally located for most summer activites. Freeport is 6 miles away, with outlet shopping, a new multiplex theater, and restaurants ..and of course, LL Bean (did you know they offer free summer concerts on their campus and a paddling school close to our cottage)?Wolf Neck State Park is just a few moments away, with many outdoor activities available. Golfing and beaches are also nearby. Sailboat and kayak rentals are also available. Brunswick, the home of Bowdoin College, is about 8 miles away, with a lovely downtown shopping area, a famous summer musical theater, the Walker Museum, and a twice-weekly farmer's market that we think is one of the best in the state.Portland, Maine's largest city, has much to offer. Casco Bay Lines ferries you to all the islands in the bay, the Portland Museum of Art has a much-renowned permanent collection of Maine artists, and the dining options are endless. Shopping in the Old Port is always exciting, and don't forget to check out Munjoy Hill (now called the East End) for its unique charm.
This is if you actually want to venture away from our cottage! Two bikes and easy walking around the neighborhood can keep you close to home, along with enjoying a walk along the shore, birdwatching, or fishing off the steps.
Our waterfront cottage is in a perfect location for watersports, especially kayaking among the nearby,beautiful Casco Bay islands. Swim or fish off the steps down to water's edge at high tide, and walk along the coastline at low tide. Birdwatching is excellent all times of year. Wolf Neck State Park offers a variety of trails to bike, hike, and enjoy, and sandy beaches await at either Popham State Park (north) or Scarborough Beach (south). Shopping and cultural activities abound, with Freeport outlets and Portlsnd's Old Port close by, and extraordinary theater, music, and art choices in nearby Freeport, Brunswick, or Portland. Foodies will be hard-pressed to choose among the fine dining options in this area, from 'lobsta' treats to the more esoteric. We provide recreational and entertainment guides, and are happy to assist with any entertainment questions our guests may have.
