Description

Freeport House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8-15)

This oceanfront home boasts a private beach and mooring and an outdoor pizza oven that overlooks the bay & islands. Have a brush in with a local shopping legend and come spend a few days in a house featured in the Spring 2011 LL Bean Home Catalog! ! ! Breathtaking sunrises abound for the early birds. Or for the night owls, the moon rises are nothing short of spectacular as the moonbeams dance upon the sea or search for your favorite constellations amidst the milky way above.

Just a 5 minute drive to Wolf Neck Farm and all of its activities, a 10 minute paddle to the delicious Harraseeket Lunch & Lobster or a 15 minute walk to Wolf Neck Woods State Park, any adventure is just minutes away. Freeport Village is just 5 miles with 100's of outlet stores.

Come stay at an idyllic private neighborhood on the beautiful coast of Maine. The property is located on the southern tip of Wolf's Neck in Freeport, Maine. Only 5 miles from Freeport Village, home of LL Bean and 100+ outlet stores including Ralph Lauren, Cole Haan, Thomas Mosher and The Gap. Restaurants range from pubs to chowder houses to exquisite dining at such places as the Harraseeket Inn. For a little more excitement, Portland, Maine is half an hour away with its happenin' historic Old Port, Merrill Auditorium, AHL Hockey, AAA Baseball and a plethora of great eateries from local brew pubs to fine dining and everything in between.

On the premises, a wood-fired pizza oven faces the ocean and is the focal point for many a memorable summer's eve. Children and adults alike can be their own chefs and enjoy food, family and beautiful Maine sunsets over Casco Bay. Enjoy the beauty and convenience of being pretty much dead center of mainland Casco Bay; you are looking right at Eagle Island w/ the recently renovated Admiral Peary's island residence (a great day trip by boat) and Halfway Rock Lighthouse (halfway point of Casco Bay) just to Southwest of that. A must stop on the way back would be to Dolphin Cove Marina & Restaurant for arguably the best bowl of Lobster or Fish Chowder in the world. If you want to drive less than an hour for a day trip to the southwest is the long, sandy beaches of Old Orchard, Ferry, Crescent, Scarborough or Higgins Beach or the exquisite Popham Beach and and nearby historical forts less than an hour to the Northeast.

Activities on-site include:

- stairs to a private beach

- a mooring for your boat

- kayaks to explore the Harraseeket River estuary and the islands of Casco Bay

- Biking, hiking and large grass area for the kids to enjoy.

Other off-site activities include: (but definitely not limited to):

The Maine Mall - South Portland,

Portland Museum of Art - Portland,

The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens - Boothbay,

Children's Museum of Maine - Portland,

This was one of the most relaxing gettaways we have been on. The accomodations were exquisite and the atmosphere was breathtaking. We truly felt like we were on vacation. I would recommend this with the highest marks!

Memorable Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying at this wonderful home! The indoor space was great along with the outdoor area. The kids enjoyed playing down by the water and running around in the yard. The home was spacious and perfect for a large family with a mix of children of all ages and adults. With beautiful weather and a fabulous landscape right outside the door, we could not have asked for anything more. The owner Frank was fabulous to work with and was always helpful. Our experience there was unforgettable!

The Perfect Maine Retreat

  • 5 of 5

A group of us spent a long weekend here and absolutely fell in love with the place!

The home is luxurious and grand but furnished to feel welcoming and cozy. Even with its custom finishes and modern updates, it has a unique, New England charm that matches the natural beautify of its surroundings. The property has it all -- a large outdoor space for dining, a lawn with garden flowers, a beach side picnic table shaded by surrounding trees, and steps down to a private stretch of beach. My favorite spot is the second floor balcony which has a stunning view of the water and is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee or curl up with a book.

Frank is also a great host who was accommodating both before and during our stay. He came by to give us a tour of the house and answer any questions and didn't hesitate to come back again to change out a few light bulbs and install screens for the windows upon request. We can't thank him enough for the wonderful stay and look forward to staying again!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I just got back from my stay this morning and wanted to make sure to write a review because I was so pleased! I stayed for a long weekend to celebrate my upcoming wedding with some friends, and I can't say enough great things about the house and property. The house is breathtaking, everything was as promised and I couldn't have asked for a better getaway. The owner Frank is very accommodating and a delight!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we could have hoped for. The property matched the description and pictures perfectly, and Frank was very easy to deal with. Everyone in our group really enjoyed our stay, from the size and comfort of the house, to the location right on the water, to the delicious pizzas we made in the oven. Couldn't recommend it more highly. Thanks for everything!

Multiple Family Perfection!!

  • 5 of 5

When you look at the pictures posted...You might be thinking...It's too good to be true! This home is FANTASTIC! It easily swallowed up my family(wife,2 kids), my brothers family(wife,2 kids), as well as my parents. The kids played, swam and fished right out the back along the shore. NOTE: The Stripers seemed to bite more at low tide(caught 4). We enjoyed using the two supplied kayaks to explore the area. Miles of walking trails were explored as well. Though it feels remote...town is just 10min away. There was a fun cafe called "The Fresh Batch" with everything from burgers to italian gelato...all real good! This home was easy to relax in and enjoy.

Wonderful Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Family "reunion" with all the siblings and grandchildren gathering together. Gorgeous location! Remote enough to feel like nobody is around yet 10 minutes to Freeport. A perfect memory for all of us:)

This home was constructed with the utmost of care to make as healthy and energy efficient as possible and was built essentially formaldehyde & allergen free and employed zero or low VOC products only when necessary in the construction process. It has HRV units to purify/dehumidify the inside air, gets the majority of domestic hot water from solar panels and all of the bedrooms except for the carriage house have optional 'kill' switches to cut power in bedrooms for those with electrical-magnetic sensitivities. The vast majority of construction products and services came from local sources and utilized as much natural or recycled materials as possible (99% of all the exterior stones came from an abandoned quarry of a nearby island). For those that stay in the off season, warm your toes on the radiant heated floors, enjoy the passive solar warmth from the abundant south facing windows, and don't forget the fireplace or wood stove if it's wood heat that pleases you.
