Overview

About the property

3 BR, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6 (including children)

FEBRUARY GETAWAY – Enjoy the Maine coast at our peaceful and secluded year-round oceanfront property. Our unique location allows our guests to appreciate beautiful sunrises and sunsets, enjoy the many geese and ducks swimming in the bay, and see eagles soaring overhead. Nearby trails provide outdoor fun for hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. We are located 6 miles from downtown Freeport and 30 minutes from Portland on the end of a private peninsula with large windows overlooking the water.

The property has been in our family for three generations and while the original log cabin is no longer with us, the updated post and beam house offers modern amenities and comfortable furnishings. The northern view looks across the water towards Wolf's Neck Woods State Park and Wolf's Neck Farm; and the southern exposure offers views of some of the Casco Bay islands.

Our unique location and wrap-around deck allows our guests the opportunity to appreciate their morning coffee while watching the beautiful sunrises, or a glass of wine while enjoying the amazing sunsets. In the summer, kayakers welcome our close proximity to the water and access to the bay. For those with small boats and outboard motors, we have an outhaul mooring which allows greater access to enjoy Casco Bay. Our guests have explored the islands and inlets, motored to area restaurants and marinas, plus enjoyed greater fishing opportunities.

There are many things to see and do that are a short drive from the house. Treat yourself to a cruise on Casco Bay, shop L.L. Bean and the Freeport outlets, enjoy a cross country ski or snowshoe class at LL Bean, visit the Admiral Peary Arctic Museum or the Museum of Art on the grounds of Bowdoin College, or explore the Maine coast.

If you prefer a more relaxed vacation, you can spend many pleasurable hours observing wildlife on the Maine coast - ducks of all kinds, Canadian geese, ospreys, great blue herons, bald eagles, and harbor seals. Have fun climbing over rocky ledges and exploring tidal pools that contain tiny fish, crabs, and other sea creatures. Or, you can just relax in the sun and read a good book while enjoying the view.

We invite you to stay at our little slice of heaven on the Maine coast.

wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home right on the bay. Lovely accomodations, plenty of privacy and close to some of the best shopping, restairanst and scenery in the world. Just 10 minutes into Freeport and another 20 minutes from Portland. The owners were very helpful and the neighbors were great. Can't wait to get back

Roomy cabin with great views.

  • 5 of 5

Overall it was a great experience. The cabin (cottage? home?) was very roomy and very clean. The temperature was a bit cold during our stay, right around 0 degrees, and it was amazingly windy but the cabin stayed nice and cozy. We were happy to enjoy the views from inside. The location was great with pretty quick access to Freeport. We had no complaints and would be happy to come back in warmer weather. Thanks for everything!

Beautiful, quiet, ideal location

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice and an absolutely beautiful location, so close to Freeport and Brunswick. The owners were very responsive and had a list of places to eat, although we decided to stay in and enjoy the view! They also gave us a list of hikes, but it was so cold and windy we couldn't spend much time outside. We would love to return in the summer! The extra cots worked out really well for our little guys. The house was well stocked with everything needed, although we did search for a flat oven pan. Our stay was overall awesome for being stuck inside due to the weather. Our only complaint would be how drafty the house is, causing it to be a bit cold. Would definitely return in warmer weather.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. It was unfortunate that it was so cold and windy during your stay. You would have enjoyed walking around the shoreline with your little ones and perhaps visiting one of the hiking spots. At the end of the peninsula without any trees for protection from the wind, it can make the house cooler in winter, but also makes for cool summer breezes!! Hope to see you again soon.

  • 5 of 5

This home is so comfortable and inviting. The views are amazing!! It is so conveniently located. We enjoyed visiting Escape rooms in Portland and shopping in Freeport!! But most of all we enjoyed evenings at the house with the view!! We can not wait to return to this property!!!

Family getaway to Freeport

  • 5 of 5

The description of the property was true to it's word and the amenities were above and beyond our expectations. A warm cozy cabin, perfect for our large family to gather over Veterans Day weekend. Great location and plenty of space for us to spread out. Our children loved exploring the wooded area near the house & collecting treasures while the tide was low. Very well maintained and great customer service! I would absolutely recommend this property to my family & friends, this experience has definitely swayed me to book more frequently on VRBO instead of big hotel chains. We received every comfort of home, away from our home in Newport, RI.

During our visit we explored Portland, downtown Freeport & a day trip to Boothbay Harbor- very easy drives from this location, even with our 1yr & 3yr old children.
