Overview

Freeport House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

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.

beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here a number of times over the past 15 years during all seasons. The house is beautifully situated at the end of the peninsula. It has everything you need for a getaway vacation. close enough to town but far enough away, caring and next door owners. Our only challenge was no dishwasher, but now we are prepared for that!

great location and a comfortable house

  • 4 of 5

What's better than staying at a house on the Maine coast in July? Maybe owning the house. But if that's not possible, rent this one. The house is very comfortable and is surrounded by water. Be advised, however, that the tides are fairly drastic, leaving exposed mud on the Eastern side of the house. Swimming is very doable during high tide, but getting into the water at low tide is impossible on the Eastern side and difficult at best on the Western side.

The owners were very accommodating, but perhaps a little too relaxed about making sure there was enough propane in the tank, which ran out midway through dinner one night. C'mon guys, get a spare tank! Also, the electric range is a bit finicky, with burners sometimes shutting down for no apparent reason. And if you want to make pancakes for breakfast, be sure and bring your own pan or griddle.

That being said, I'd stay there again (if the owners will let me after this review). It's all about location, and this property has it.

Comfortable Rental and Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at this house, and we very much recommend it! We stayed for two weeks with our 7 month old baby and my parents. The house was well-appointed, clean and comfortable. The owners were even thoughtful enough to leave fresh picked flowers and strawberries for our arrival. The house is located down a private drive and there is water and beautiful views in both the front and back of the house. There's also a lovely little deck and gas grill - a fabulous way to spend the afternoon, if you ask me! There's a great spot to launch your kayak just feet from the house, and it really is a gorgeous spot to explore by water. This is also a great location to stay in if you're interested in day trips along the Maine coast - we drove to Boothbay Harbor, Kennebunkport, and Old Orchard Beach. Plus, you have the Freeport outlets and nice dining spots just about a 10-15 minute drive away. This is a great place to enjoy the beautiful Maine outdoors, but they also have wifi in case you need it. My whole family hopes to return!

the description of the home was accurate

  • 4 of 5

We rented the house for our daughter's graduation weekend and it suited that purpose very well. We cooked as necessary, hung out and relaxed, slept well, enjoyed the wonderful views, went for runs... It is not a luxurious home, but it is a comfortable place to escape to. Given the #s the house can potentially sleep, the fact that there is only one bathroom with a tub/shower is challenging, but it's workable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing to stay at our property and for your kind remarks. We're glad you had a relaxing and comfortable experience. We have thought of adding a shower on the first floor, but due to the fact that we have a well instead of public water supply, and our proximity to the ocean we have decided to conserve our water source. I hope you'll consider staying at our property again should your travels bring you back to the Freeport area.

We'd return

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location, but for winter could need AWD for the private road depending on conditions. House was very comfortable, well stocked and very close to the Freeport shopping area. Hoping to return in a different season.

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in July 2013 was fantastic. The house was just as described and the photos are a good representation of the property. You know the saying "location, location, location!". Front of the house has a West view across the bay for sunsets and the back has East bay view for sunrises. It really is the last house on a quiet wooded point. We relaxed and enjoyed the birds, water, breezes and solitude of the house. Freeport village is 10 mins away so lots of shopping and easy access to groceries for meals. Kitchen is well stocked for cooking with pots, pans, big lobster pot, dishes, gas grill, coffee maker and a toaster that was a little slow at toasting. We used the broiler in the oven for faster toast. Renting kayaks or canoes is a must. Easy launching was available 50 feet from the house. We rented from Lincoln Kayak and Canoe in Freeport. They delivered, picked up and included all equipment ie; life vests, spray skirts, pump and handled it all over the phone. The owners were very helpful and left us fresh blueberries one day. We will be back to stay here again!!!
