What an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We came two families together, so four adults and 4 children of 7 and under. The place is so spacious and calm. The kids had their bicycles and enjoyed the lovely calm cul-de-sac. It is an amazing hub to go to Freeport, Old Orchard beach and Ogunquit beach. The groceries are nearby, and the house comes with all the basic necessities to be comfortable. The structure is so beautiful. Everything in the house is functional and practical...I hope this location is available for a long time, because I sure hope to come back.

Felt like home !

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is really a gem! So comfortable and well designed . We were able to have our dogs with us which was a huge plus. The cottage is located on a lovely street , easily gotten to off the main highway . For us it was close by to family and not too far from other great places to visit. We're planning on returning !

Absolutely charming place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully updated- has the rustic feel of a barn, yet modern high-end finishes. Such a nice touch that all linens are provided plus washer/drier to allow for lighter packing. The location is perfect, a minute drive to downtown Freeport and just off the highway allowing easy access to get many places. Lots of restaurant options in Freeport, and we also grilled out at the house several nights. Bow Street Market and Shaws grocery store are both close and have great selection. Highly recommend the tour of Wilbur's Chocolate Factory! Thanks to John and Kim for creating and sharing the Maine Gem!

A true Maine Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at "A Maine Gem" and we plan on doing it again. :) The house is beautiful and comfortable. As soon as you step over the thresh hold you feel at home. The kitchen was well stocked and the grill outside was great on the nights we decided to cook at home. The home and the yard are gorgeous. One of my favorite pastime was reading on the porch after sightseeing or shopping. It was peaceful and serene.

If you are a LL Bean fan the house is about 5 minutes from down town Freeport. There are plenty of things to do from shopping, going on a whale watch and visiting different lighthouses. You are not far from a lot of attractions and there is something for everyone. The owners John and Kim keep a folder of local restaurants and attractions nearby which gave ideas of things to see and do.

I highly recommend staying at A Maine Gem. The owners have thought of everything to make our stay pleasant and we are looking forward to visiting again. Thank you John and Kim for sharing your beautiful home with us. Can't wait to visit again. :)
