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!

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!

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.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had the best weekend of our whole summer at Caroline's house! So wonderful to have a weekend of hiking and biking in the gorgeous sunshine. One day it rained for hours so we spent the afternoon cozied up with popcorn, books and played cards. It was so relaxing! Everything you could need or want is at the house. It's such a treat to go away for the weekend and not have to worry about a thing. Thank you Caroline for being so wonderful!

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wks at the cottage and it was way beyound our expectations. The home was lovely. There was nothing that had been overlooked including entertainment. We had a wildlife show, turkeys on parade, visited twice a day and their antics were not only entertaining but very educational. Who knew tyrkeys roost in trees!

The weather couldn't have been nicer and the location is stellar for cycling, walking and trips into Freeport/Portland and/Brunswick for shopping or dining.

We will definitely return again next summer for a longer stay.

Thank you Caroline and Jonathan.

Perfect Maine getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This location is perfect! Very quiet neighborhood on the water. The way life should be! Cottage is extremely clean and has everything you need for your stay. Loved all the decor! Deck overlooking cove is beautiful - just the right spot to enjoy cup of coffee in the morning. We stayed for 3 weeks and I would not change a thing.
