A small home on the Harraseeket River, near South Freeport Harbor comes well stocked and decorated. It is available for weekly rental during June, July and August. You may be fortunate enough to experience a full moon while staying on the river. Some of us believe, there is nothing prettier than a full moon on the Harraseeket.
A canoe or kayak can be launched right from the front yard. The Harraseeket River is delightful for kayaking, as well as the gateway to Freeport Harbor and into Casco Bay. Just five minutes away is downtown Freeport, home of LL Bean and many well-known retail outlets. From Freeport, you are well positioned to make day trips to many Maine coastal beaches and towns. In Freeport, you have Wolf Neck State Park and Winslow Park to enjoy. Portland is just 19 miles away for access to city life as well as ferries to islands in Casco Bay.
Our Harraseeket Home...: This lovely home is perfect for a romantic getaway or kayaker's dream vacation. Enjoy beautiful views of Casco Bay and South Freeport's own Harraseeket River. Minutes from downtown Freeport and a variety of beaches both north and south of us (Popham, Scarborough, Reid State Park, Higgins, etc). An ideal spot to relax and rejuvenate.
We had a wonderful time at your home. We really enjoyed the beautiful and peaceful setting. It was just what we were looking for on the coast of Maine.
You have a delightful home, with everything anyone would need during an extended stay and the convient location was perfect! Time went buy much too quickily. It is always so hard to leave Maine. Hope we can do this again next year...
Two friends and I stayed here for three nights in July. It was the perfect space for us--everyone got her own bedroom, but we enjoyed hanging out on the deck and in the kitchen and living room. The wall of windows brings beautiful views and plenty of sunshine in every morning. Although we didn't get a chance to do much cooking, the kitchen is well-equipped and Annie was thoughtful enough to have coffee at the house and frosty glasses in the freezer for our cold beverages! Annie's communication via email was also helpful and timely. She was just as friendly and gracious in person.
A few tips on local amenities: there is a lobster pound about a mile away, but Erica's in Harpswell is much more picturesque and less expensive. Check out the breweries (Gritty's, Maine Beer) in town; the food at Gritty's is better than you might expect (especially the smoked salmon salad) and the beers are great. There's a custard place a little ways south on Rte. 1 that's worth a visit for a sweet treat. Freeport is very close, but if you just want a quiet stay away from it all, this house is perfect.
The marina down the road (Ring's) will rent and deliver kayaks to the house for a reasonable daily rate (and you can keep them overnight). Paddling down the river is really fun--just be aware of the tides. Low tide is really low! Plus, you can put in from the back yard, but it's quite a steep grade to get down to the water, so you need a little muscle to carry the boats across the yard and down (not to mention back up). Take a dip in the river, too, if you get a chance--it's so pleasant on a hot day. And... the full moon over the river really is quite a magical sight!
Overall, this is a great spot. My friends and I are already thinking about coming back next summer!
We had a great time at Annie's clean, cozy, and comfortable home. Enjoyed grilling on the deck and waking up to a gorgeous water view. Can't wait to go back!
My husband and I and are 7-month old baby stayed here for two weeks and had the most relaxing vacation. I'm sorry to say that the photos don't do this house justice, because you must stand in the center of the main floor and just see for yourself. The living landscape framed by the "wall of glass"..is just priceless. This was my 5th trip to Freeport, and my husband grew up here - so we were not new to this neighborhood and area. But every morning was a remarkable welcome, looking at the yard and the river. Watching the sometimes fickle Maine weather change before our eyes was really fun. I really felt like I was connected to the landscape the entire stay.
We laid out on blankets every day and relished the quiet. The trees are especially beautiful on the property. We grilled every evening, and what a treat to have both charcoal and gas! The kitchen is well-stocked, and the washer and dryer worked perfectly. The house was immaculate and fresh!
The two bedrooms were quaint and cozy and the beds were very comfortable. The loft space was a fun and safe play area for our baby. There is definitely room to spare with plenty of closet space provided and dressers and tables. The house is so well thought-out with somewhere cozy to sit almost every space of the house.
A memorable Freeport stay!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this charming Maine cabin. When we arrived, we were delighted to find that the photos appropriately represented the property. A wall of glass leading out to a deck framed the lovely yard anchored by enormous trees - along with a fabulous view of the river. The house was clean, beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was equipped to fit our needs. The furnishings were colorful and the location was quiet and very convenient to downtown Freeport. The owner was very responsive to our questions and we would not hesitate to recommend this property.
I rented this house for two-week periods during the last two summers. The location is wonderful, the house is very comfortable, and has everything you need. The living room, kitchen, and deck look out onto the Harraseeket River, which is a wide inlet from Casco Bay. There is a state park across the river, so there are no interruptions to the great view. Freeport has wonderful shopping and is very close. South Freeport is quiet, except for the wonderful Harraseeket restaurant, which is nearby. I recommend the lobster roll, crab sandwich, or fresh fish sandwiches without reservation. It is crowded in summer, but the wait is worth it for the view and the fresh seafood. Portland is also nearby, with many wonderful cultural, shopping, and foodie adventures. This is an ideal vacation spot, and I hope to rent Annie's house in future years. She is friendly and helpful. Enjoy your stay in this great house!
