About Anne B. Zill

I am one of four brothers and sisters who grew up in the charming village of South Freeport and this home was just built for us to gather together a few times a year and for others to rent in between.

Anne B. Zill purchased this house in 2011

Why Anne B. Zill chose Portland and Casco Bay Area

We love the village, the water and the proximity to Freeport and Portland and all the islands of Casco Bay. Freeport has many outlets, and is shopping heaven. Portland is a secret high culture mecca with excellent restaurants, visual arts, music and theatre. Both towns are minutes away.

What makes this house unique

Using the grill, lolling about on the balcony deck or by the fireplace (wood provided), appreciating nature and the quietness and the pull of the tides.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It's like a palace in the sky. The birds on the water in the morning are mesmerizing. Fire in the fireplace, music playing, cookies in the oven, heaven.

Beautiful home with an incredible view

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our stay. We (11 of us) were all very impressed with the home and were very happy with our time here. We were all able to sleep comfortably. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in the Freeport/ Portland area.

Exactly as Described!!

  • 5 of 5

Great, peaceful weekend visit for ourselves, 2 kids and their spouses, and 2 - 1+ year old toddlers. House is big, clean, well stocked, and conveniently located to Freeport and Portland. Nice deck with Weber grill (I filled the propane tank for the next visitors). Communication with the owners was very easy; all questions were quickly responded to. Great collection of artwork and reading material not often seen in a rental location. Thanks!

Perfect house for Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for a girls trip and it was perfect! The house is large, beautiful, clean, new, and right on the water. Anne was very responsive and great to deal with. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to vacation in this area. Great location; it was easy to travel up and down the Maine coast, as well as visit Freeport and Portland. Thank you for a wonderful trip, Anne!

Owner cancelled reservation two weeks before stay

  • 1 of 5

We never got to see the property.

Owner cancelled reservation after it had been confirmed for over a month, security deposit + full fee paid in advance, due to a claimed "double booking" mistake on her part.

Be careful with this one.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful house for our annual girls' week. We have stayed at several VRBO locations all over the country and this residence ranked at the top. The kitchen was well equipped, the beds were comfortable and the location was close enough to the Freeport Village but far enough away to have complete serenity. Have already suggested this house to several friends and family.
