Freeport house description

Our home, the last house on a point of land, has been our peaceful summer home since 1986. Decks on both sides afford both an east and west view of the water. The rocky shoreline has a few sandy places for sunbathing and swimming depending on the changing of the tide. We enjoy harbor seals, blue herons, osprey, gulls, and we've even seen eagles!

The interior has a comfortable, open floor plan downstairs with full bath and laundry. There are four bright, cozy bedrooms and a full bath upstairs. Two of the bedrooms open directly onto the balcony which makes it possible to lie abed and view the water beyond.

In addition to the usual amenities, we leave the kitchen stocked with spices, condiments, baking ingredients, and canned goods with the understanding that whomever uses the last of anything replaces it for incoming guests. There is wireless internet and basic cable.

Our best recommendation is that folks keep coming back. Check out our guest reviews!


'Thea' has been our summer home since 1986. We are the last house on a point of land. Decks on both sides afford both an east and west view of the water. The rocky shoreline has a few sandy places for sunbathing and swimming depending on the changing of the tide. We enjoy ospreys, gulls, and we've even seen eagles feeding on the flats at low tide.

Our home is a modernized Cape with a comfortable, open floor plan with a downstairs laundry and full bath and four compact bedrooms upstairs. Two of the bedrooms open directly onto the balcony which makes it possible to lie abed and watch the water beyond. We have basic cable for a TV upstairs and downstairs and wireless internet.

In addition to the usual amenities we leave the kitchen stocked with spices, condiments, and canned goods with the understanding that whomever uses the last of anything replaces it for incoming guests.
Our best recommendation is that folks keep coming back. Check out the reviews to capture the flavor of our guests' experiences.

                  Close to Portland, Freeport shopping (home of LLBean), Bowdoin College, museums in Bath and Brunswick, and many state parks and beaches. Our home, almost surrounded by water and at the high tides with the new moon and the full moon, briefly becomes an island. Under most circumstances this does not impact your visit. Once in a while though you have to use our tide charts to plan when you will leave or return.
