Overview

Freeport House Rental Photos and Description

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

Our peaceful and secluded year-round oceanfront property is located 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. 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 dinner cruise on Casco Bay, shop L.L. Bean and the Freeport outlets,

enjoy a performance at the Maine State Summer Music Theatre or a free summer outdoor concert at L.L. Bean, visit the Admiral Peary Arctic Museum or the Museum of Art on the grounds of Bowdoin College, visit the local farmers markets, 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

kayak heaven

  • 4 of 5

If you love to kayak and watch the sun rise and set from the comfort of a deck chair then you will really love this place. It is nature at it's best. We saw a bald eagle in the 1st 15 minutes of our first kayak trip! Inside the house you will find a clean, well equipped kitchen and bathrooms, a comfortable family area, plenty of towels and comfortable beds. So, if you love the outdoors and still being close to town, you will love this place.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this vrbo rental for a week. It is a tad bit rustic, but we loved everything about it. The location and views were just what the doctor ordered. The owners were very nice. They were available if needed, but left you be at the same time.

The bathtub upstairs could have drained somewhat quicker, but hey we were fine.

Being close, but not too close to Freeport was fantastic. My husband who normally takes at least 2 days to just unwind, was immediately at peace. Just close enough to Portland, but not too close. We are hoping we can return again next summer for a

Month. We thoroughly enjoyed it. It is not the Four Season resort, but we were very

very happy. The most relaxing time we have had in awhile.

All the owners recommendations were right on.

If you are in the mood to just relax and get away from our constant fast past environment, we highly recommend it.

Beautiful area!!!!!!!

Loved it.

Freeport rental

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautiful wonderful location with water on 3 sides. It couldn't be better. However, the house itself needs work. We rented it last year,also. At that time there was one stove burner not working. This year there were two not working. The linens were worn, the towels were ragged, the furniture sagging and old. The beds and mattresses were very uncomfortable.
