Oh so stylish!! What a beautiful property! Loved EVERYTHING about this wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This stunning cottage is located in a lovely quiet neighborhood. The owners bent over backwards to get the cottage ready for us despite the challenges of the snow! It was warm, beautifully furnished and we felt completely at home! The beds were very comfortable, the bathrooms luxurious, the kitchen well stocked (except we needed crackers & picks for our lobster dinner) and the heating was really easy to operate by remote control! We had an absolutely wonderful time and the tour I gave my parents, via Skype in England, made my mum want to move in!! We would not hesitate to stay here again! Thanks SO MUCH, Caroline!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

I have rented numerous homes through HomeAway and this was the best. It was perfect for a family get together because it was so open. The view out the back was beautiful and it was pretty secluded.

Cozy home with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We recently had to come to town for a family funeral and thought we would like some place more homey than a hotel. Luckily we found this listing on short notice and the owner was graciously even able to accommodate a last minute schedule change.

First of all, the house is beautifully decorated—I was oohing and ahhing! My favorite piece was the cute antique wash stand in the first floor bath—but there were many charming touches like this. We had arrived late at night after dining at Tuscan Brick Oven restaurant in Freeport (a MUST try) so we did not get to see the beautiful scenery that evening, but the house was easy to find in the dark with no GPS using directions provided. The beds were quite comfortable with nice linens and the heat pumps provided ample heating on the chilly night once they got going. When we awoke the next morning we were stunned by the beautiful views of the bay right out the window. We even saw some large wild turkeys out for a morning stroll in the yard.

I haven’t been to Freeport in several years and so much has changed but we did enjoy checking out the shops and especially enjoyed hot coffee and donuts at Frosty’s on Main Street! My daughter got to see Santa at LL Bean, too. A happy surprise! The house was much closer to the main drag than I thought it would be, so that was nice not having to spend too much time in the car to get around.

This was the perfect place to call home for a few days under the sad circumstances but we felt very peaceful there. The winter pricing was extremely reasonable! (Not sure if it is same in summer season.) My only sadness was the house isn’t bigger to accommodate another stay this summer season with our extended family! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.

Wonderful spot!

  • 5 of 5

Caroline's home is lovely and the setting couldn't be more idyllic - quiet and by the water, yet just a quick drive from stores and restaurants. The house is beautiful, very clean and thoughtfully decorated, and well-stocked with everything you'll need. Caroline was easy to communicate with and provided us with all the information we needed. Really lovely, all of it. So glad we stayed here - we plan on coming back to the cottage next time we're in Maine!

Wild Kingdom

  • 5 of 5

One of the coziest rentals we have stayed at in a long time. The cottage is very well looked after and super clean. The beds are truly comfortable as is the furniture. They caution about intermittent internet but we never had a problem. I titled this Wild Kingdom because of all the wildlife in the area, made things interesting and fun. We never had an opportunity to use the fireplace but I can only imagine how pleasing that would be. We are planning to return again next year.

About Caroline Ely

We are an active couple in our sixties who love to be outdoors hiking, kayaking, bicycling! We love our cozy cottage on Casco Bay and enjoy spending time there visiting with our son, daughter-in-law and grandchild.

Caroline Ely purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Caroline Ely chose Freeport

Maine is a wonderful place to spend some time with so many activities in all four seasons. We are just 1.8 miles from the LLBean Paddling Center and just 3 miles from Wolfe's Neck Woods State Park which has wonderful hiking trails and amazing views of Casco Bay and its islands. It's a short drive into the center of Freeport with its many restaurants and shops, including the well known LLBean, as well as our favorite Patagonia outlet!

What makes this cottage unique

Quiet and peaceful. Our home is nestled at the end of a dead end street in a lovely neighborhood. It is surrounded by woods, salt marshes and Casco Bay. The only noise will be the many birds!
