Perfect Home Away from Home
The Freedom Song House had everything we needed to make our vacation perfect. Although we did not do much cooking at home, we could have made anything we wanted - all the necessary cookware, bakeware, etc. were available, as well as many spices, oils,etc. I was also impressed with the amount of bath towels provided - we had five in our party with 3-4 towels per person.
When first searching for homes, I almost did not select this one because it did not have air conditioning. My friends and family refer to me as "hot flash" because I am always hot - at home we keep our A/C set very low, and everybody who visits is freezing. However, I was perfectly fine in the house - there are many windows to open, and ample fans provided, to make your stay very comfortable. Do not let the absence of A/C keep you from renting this property.
We enjoyed watching the many birds that visited the feeders on the deck off the dining area, as well as watching the frogs who live in the fountain. The many windows provide so much natural light that you do not need to use the lamps or overhead lights during the day.
Although Wiscasset is relatively small, many great towns are within a few minutes' drive. Do not miss Boothbay Harbor, Bath, Rockland, and Camden. Be sure to stop through Ogunquit on your way up the coast, and make a day trip to Bar Harbor - well worth it!
The owner was a great pleasure to work with, and she has a local friend who is more than willing to help out if you need anything. Although I sincerely doubt you will need anything while staying at the Freedom Song House - anything you could possibly need/want to make your stay enjoyable is provided, including games, CDs, movies, magazines, tourist brochures, etc. etc.
I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!
