"The pictures do no justice in how awesome this cottage is. The cottage felt like home. The dock is just steps away from the cottage. We hanged out on the dock on our first night and almost every night. The moon was bright and had a cool breeze. We could just camp on that dock :) The cottage is very clean and comfortable. It has a nice full kitchen. Everything is close by grocery stores, breweries, restaurants and hiking trails. If you like shopping, the outlet mall and LL Bean are just a short drive. South Freeport road is a nice road to run/bike. There are barely any cars on the road and we saw plenty of people running and biking. Stephanie and John are wonderful hosts. They gave us good recommendations on restaurants and hiking trails. Even though they were just a few steps away, we felt that we had our privacy. If you need them they’re there but if not they just leave you be. Our trip to Freeport wouldn't have been this fun and relaxing if we have stayed somewhere else. I definitely recommend staying at their cottage."

Comfortable home close to all kinds of attractions
"This home has both privacy ( on acres of woods) and is close to loads of activities. Freeport is a 15 minute ride with shops and restaurants. There are two food stores in freeport, as well as a farm stand I found with great food from local farms. State parks are in Freeport such as Wolf Neck State Park that have trails on the coast where we have seen osprey nests and loads of islands. Trips can be signed up for on the LLBean website that take off at the state park. They have everything from kayaking to fly fishing.
Brunswick is about 25 minutes drive but could be an all day event. In the summer the Maine Music Theater has plays which can be booked online ahead or possibly purchased at the door. The weekend I was there the main street in Brunswick was closed for an arts and crafts festival. Both Freeport and Brunswick have music in the park once a week.
Portland has so much to offer, but since my daughter lives in Portland I decided to skip it this year and go out farther north up to Pemiquid light house and a salt water cove that Rachel Carson did studies in. The house offered stars, and in August there were plenty of shooting stars to see. All our meals were eaten outside on the large deck using the grill. I am from N.J., and I thought we had many restaurants. Just so many ethnic places around if you take into account what Portland has to offer. One night we took off for a church meal that is legendary. It was an absolutely beautiful ride down through Orrs Island onto Bailey Island. One Saturday a month, at a small church they have a reasonable meal that is home cooked. This time it was lobster stew. I met a man there who is the 8th generation to live in his island home. I absolutely cannot find such treasures in my home state. Looking forward to coming back to this home because it is secluded yet removed from tourists and traffic. I call it a "home" rather than a house because you get the sense of warmth and history from it. For example, this is the first place I have rented the has so many plants, and items that truly belong to the owner. Unless I move up here myself…I will be back next year!"

"This home was even more than we expected. With everything right there, that we could possibly need, we felt right at home immediately. It was very spacious and clean. The kitchen was just incredible! The deck was peaceful, and the view was great. We definitely plan to go back again."
