'IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS' MAQUOIT BAY WATERFRONT COTTAGE

Freeport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 ful bath, sleeps 4

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.

A SMALL BUT PERFECT IDYLL

  • 5 of 5
we loved the cottage! Aside from the perfect location overlooking the bay and islands, it had everything we needed to enjoy a week away from responsibilities. i love to cook, and it was such a pleasure to stay somewhere with such a well-thought out supply of kitchen & dining equipment. The beds were super-comfortable, the sitting options in the living room were great for reading or just watching the tide come and go. We also took advantage of the two bikes that were in the shed...a terrific get-away.

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
CB Cottage was the perfect vacation cottage for our family of 4. The house is very thoughtfully provisioned, comfortable, charming, and has a wonderful waterfront with amazing views from both floors. Low tide allowed for our daughters to have fun 'mucking' about for shells and other treasures. The location is ideal -- on a quiet road with easy access to running and biking routes. We've been staying in the Freeport area for years and particularly enjoyed our trip this year!

LITTLE SLICE OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed the week of 4th of July 2013. It was unseasonably warm in the area during the second half of our stay, but the ocean breeze kept us cool. The location is just perfect! You are just minutes into town for shops and restaurants, but when at the the cottage, it's quiet and peaceful. The Bow Street Market in Freeport offered everything we needed to cook meals at the cottage. The cottage had everything we needed. Watch the fog roll in or read a book in the lounge chair under the tree in the back yard. Very relaxing! The owners are VERY cool and very kind. We had the best time and plan to return.

JUNE VACATION

  • 5 of 5
I spent the week with my boyfriend and another couple and it was perfect. The Cottage itself is totally charming, spotless and perfectly appointed right down to the tiny Lobstah Fahks! Cynthia the owner was great to work with. She provided us with tons of information on the area from shopping to boating, theater to farmers markets. We kayaked, biked, hiked, saw Eagles and Seals and when it rained we went shopping in Freeport. We cooked out almost every night. We will definitely return next summer. We were very sad to leave.

I spent the week with my boyfriend and 2 dear friends at CB Cottage and just loved it. The cottage was perfectly appointed right down to the Lobstah fawks! It was spotless, and super charming. The owner Cynthia was fantastic to work with - she provided great information on shopping, dining, and recreational activities in the area. We kayaked, and biked, went for long walks and cooked out on the barbecue almost every night. We saw Eagles and Seals and when it rained we went shopping in Freeport! It was the perfect summer getaway. We were sad to leave...and definitely will be going back next summer.

SUMMER DELIGHT

  • 5 of 5
My husband, yellow lab and I were lucky enough to enjoy CB cottage, on the bay in Freeport Maine. The area is populated but quiet, serene and the cottage is very comfortable. The view from the sitting room and back yard is second to none. Most mornings we woke to ducks quietly paddling and a blue heron standing knee deep looking for fish. We brought our kayaks and had some great paddles around the near-by islands and up and down the bay. We also had a great time hiking at locations close by. If you enjoy a little more excitement all you have to do is take a quick drive to town and enjoy good food and great shopping. We would love to have the opportunity to stay next year!!

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.
