We had a lovely time walking the shoreline and community, watching the meteor shower. Drove to Popham Beach for day of swimming. Lots of great seafood on the grill and out at restaurants. Relaxed with sea breeze and sun and shade, as preferred.
This waterfront home is clean and comfortable in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. The living room and screened porch afford panoramic views and gentle breezes of Casco Bay. The owners were very accommodating and easy to work with, and they provided kayaks, bicycles, ping pong and other games for vacation pleasure. This location is close to shopping, sightseeing day trips and numerous restaurants in the area.
Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.
Just returned from a one week stay at this lovely Maine waterfront home with our teenage (17yo) twins.
House was exactly as described - glorious views over Casco Bay, very clean and ample room for our family. Very fast broadband kept the kids in touch with the world. Very well equiped kitchen with bonus of having huge range of herbs and spices.
We used the kyaks every day to explore the bays and islands nearby, but it's worth noting that kyakaing isn't possible over low tide when very soft mud is revealed below the house. This only takes a couple of hours out of each tide, so not much of an inconvenience.
We made occasional use of the bikes too.
There are loads of games / sports eqipment to keep energetic teens happy.
Nearby, there is the designer shopping of Freeport (5 mins drive). A 30 min drive gets you to Portland which is a very interesting small coastal city (we recommend the Casco Bay Lines mail boat island hopping and the Shipyard Brewary tour). Brunswick and Bath in the other direcction provide interesting destinations too.
We had a superb morning's fishing with Fishntrips at Fort Popham, near Bath. The blues were biting that day!
Best meal near the house was at Gritty McDuffs, Freeport (a brew pub with excellent IPA).
Overall, a lovely, great value week - recommended.
This cottage is one of the best cottage rentals we have ever had and we feel so lucky to have gotten the rental at the last minute. The cottage situated on the water, was very quiet and relaxing - an idyllic retreat for someone looking to get away from it all. The owner provides most everything you need for a wonderful stay. There are two bicycles, great for touring around the area and getting some exercise, as well as two kayaks that are perfect for paddling around the calm waters of Maquoit Bay. The neighbors, many of whom live year round, are friendly.
The cottage is very clean and well-maintained (the pictures on the site really don't do the place justice), and we really didn't have to buy anything other than our food and some toilet paper to top up what was at the cottage when we arrived.
This little beauty is only a 10 minute drive from the hustle and bustle of Freeport, and the many wonderful restaurants that Freeport has to offer. We recommend Azure, The Corsican, Buck's Naked Barbecue to name a few.
We will definitely consider returning to this lovely cottage as our vacation has been one of the most relaxing ones we have ever had, and would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for a combination of peace and quiet as well as some great shopping and dining out.
This ocean front property has wonderful views of the islands in Casco Bay. Watch the sun and moon rise over the islands from your living room, sun porch or lawn. Binoculars & a telescope are available for you use should you like to take a closer look.
If you like to kayak, the islands are a great place to explore. There are 2 single & 1 tandem kayaks available at the property. If you are a beginner, the LL Bean paddle school, part of their Outdoor Discover School (ODS) is only a few miles away. Check out ODS classes at LL Bean web site. They also offer fly fishing, archery, and skeet shooting; they even have moonlight kayak tours.
Stripe bass fishing is just down the street or within a few miles of the property.
If you like easy day hiking, Wolfe’s Neck Park and Wolfe’s Neck Farm are only 2 -3 miles away. Wolfe’s Neck Farm has day camp for the kids - though anyone can visit the farm anytime. Other near by hiking locations are, Hedgehog Mountain and Bradbury Mountain State park. For bird watchers there is the Freeport bird sanctuary.
Looking for the big beaches, to the northeast, Popham Beach & Fort Popham along with Reid State Park are 45- 50 mins drive, or to the south is Scarborough and Old Orchard beach.
Want to take a ferry to see the islands of Casco Bay? Head down to Portland and take the mail boat run that Casco Bay Lines offers. You can get off at on Island, get back on and get off at another. Some of the islands have restaurants that you can have lunch or dinner. When you are ready, head back to Portland on the next ferry. One ticket price covers all.
And don’t forget Freeport Village with all of the shops, plenty of restaurants and a new movie theater. There is ample parking in the new parking garage down town.
Let us know if we have missed anything that you are looking to do, and we will let you know what is in the area to accommodate you.
