Weekend getaway not enough

  • 5 of 5

What a peaceful place to spend a 60th birthday! LLBean/city so close, but this pristine place just far enough away. We thought three days would be enough, but it wasnt really; which means we need to come back! (Yay us!) We would like to come back to this home again and stay longer, maybe in the summer where we could use the kayaks and sit on the deck and admire the view. Everything about the rental was seamless, and the place was immaculate. Thanks so much!!

Lovely place to get away!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage for a girls shopping weekend before the holidays. We had a great time. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. The property is accurately described and very well maintained. We would love to return. It is close to all the shops and restaurants, but we enjoyed sitting around looking at the beautiful view and relaxing even more than shopping!

Sparkle Family Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently returned from a wonderful family weekend in Freeport. We found this spot on line and thought it would be a great place for us all to stay and enjoy time together. It was perfect! The spot is beautiful and I can hardly wait to book this summer because I think it would be amazing that time of year. The cottage has everything you could need or want and the booking process was smooth and pleasant. Darlene was lovely to deal with and very informative. I had many questions and she patiently answered all of them. Cant wait to return! Book with confidence of a splendid holiday retreat! Thanks again for everything.

Restful and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We rented this cottage for two, relaxing weeks. The sunrises and sunsets were spectacular, the location quiet yet very convenient to downtown Freeport. Several of the neighbors stopped while walking by to welcome us and say hello.

We very much enjoyed ourselves!

Beautiful restful location

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week at Shepard's Cottage in May of 2006 and then went back the next year in September of 2007. The place is in a beautiful location and the cottage is beautifully maintained. There is so much to do in the area but leave time to just sit on the deck and relax or go for long walks in the neighborhood. The sunsets at the end of the peninsula are unbelievable and I took so many pictures. The only thing I found wanting was the lack of a

good internet connection. Even in the wilderness you need to be able to stay connected. It would be the perfect vacation spot if they had wireless broadband internet so that I could use my laptop to connect. Also, I couldn't give a fair review if I didn't comment on how nice Darlene, the rental agent, is and what good communication we received. Thanks for a memorable visit to Maine.
