About the Property
4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 8, fully equipped including linens.
Our home, the last house on a point of land, has been our peaceful summer retreat 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, geese, gulls, and we've even seen bald 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!

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.
Year Purchased: 1986
About: We have bought and renovated many houses over our life time. We love the work and we love to work together. Our kids have helped us out too. There is very little that is original in this house now.
Why Freeport, ME, USA:
We had been looking for a summer home on the Maine Coast for ten years. When we saw this property we bought it in our hearts before we'd seen the inside. The location was exactly what we were looking for. The inside needed a complete renovation and there was no second floor. So we tackled the first floor: down to the studs, new insulation, wiring, plumbing, and heating. Then we raised the roof on the second floor to make room for another bathroom and four cozy bed rooms. We also had to install a new septic system, underground cable for the house, new decks, new windows, new water pump... you name it and it has been done to our home. Coincidental with this is that we took our children to stay on a little island which we can see from this location. Bustin's Island was a wonderful series of summers and when they return each summer (now as adults with their own children) we journey out to there to see where we spent many pleasant times as a young family.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Being the last house on a point is indeed a unique feature. It's also possible that during the full moon or the new moon, the causeway we drive across covers with a few inches to a 18 inches of water at high tide. Then we're an island for ten minutes to two hours. It depends on the height of the tide. In addition, the tidal changes also bring a very dynamic wild life to our area. Great Blue Herons come and go with the tides as do geese, ducks, ospreys, and even striped bass. Our grandson caught a 22" one off the beach in front of our deck.
