Overview

About the property

2 living rooms, 2 large bedrooms, 1 full bath, sleeps 6

Our beautiful oceanfront guest house comes complete with a fabulous lobster feast each week. Located near the end of a private road, you'll feel like you've truly gotten away from it all, yet you're only minutes from historic Yarmouth Village, Freeport's famous outlets and the Old Port's restaurants and boutiques. This charming house features pumpkin pine floors, custom cherry kitchen, shaker furniture and amazing views from all rooms. Have a drink out on the new deck or take a nap on the sun porch overlooking the bay. Walk down the winding staircase and take a swim in the cove at high tide or explore tidal pools and the rocky shoreline. Bike across the bridge to Sandy Point Beach on Cousins Island and sink your toes in the sand. We provide Wi-Fi, and cable . The house has an eat-in kitchen w/deck, living room and family room both with cable, DVD & stereo, a sun porch, a large L-shaped master w/queen bed, pull-out sofa & twin plus second bedroom with queen & twin.

Guest Book Comments : 'Thank you for providing such a lovely spot for us to spend a week together. The lobster feast was wonderful--we had to take a rest between courses!! We biked Peak's Island (ferry from Portland, bike shop up road to left-easy rentals) and explored Wolf's Neck State Park (wonderful osprey sightings!!).. The Old Port in Portland is a good destination for shops and restaurants. The Royal River Grillhouse was great too!'

'We so enjoyed your beautiful home. The lobsters were delicious! One of our favorite spots was Christmas Cove.'

'Thanks for everything, we loved staying here!'

'We had a great week here. Went sailing on a windjammer from Portland--it was fantastic! The lobster feast was amazing! One of our favorite places was Boothbay Harbor. Thanks Joi & Lee, your house is lovely. Cheers!'

'Gorgeous, Gorgeous, Gorgeous! And the lobster feast was absolutely STUPENDOUS! Thanks so much!'

'Thank you so much for a great stay. We had a great time exploring Portland'

For the kids...: For the kids there are two wonderful playgrounds in town as well as area attractions that include the Aquaboggan Water Park and Fun Town Splash Town USA in Saco Maine (about 45 minutes away). We also have many beautiful white sand beaches south of Portland that are about 40 minutes away. Other family favorites are the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray (35 minutes), the Desert of Maine in Freeport (20 minutes), and Sebago Lake State Park in Casco (45 minutes). The kids and adults will want to visit Eartha the world's largest globe which is right here in Yarmouth at Delorme Map Company headquarters. We also have a beautiful YMCA with two swimming pools and a great workout facility just 4 miles up the road. There is also a local movie theater nearby in Falmouth just 15 minutes away.

Things to do...: Enjoy a hike at one of four parks within a few minutes drive: Royal River Park, Winslow State Park, Hedgehog Mountain, Bradbury Mountain or Wolf Neck Woods. Take a course at LL Bean's adventure school in fly fishing or skeet shooting and check out their paddling center. It's all only a few miles away. We've compiled a complete list of local attractions and activities as well as wonderful local restaurants and will be happy to share our favorites with you.
