About the Property

3 BR, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6 (including children)

FEBRUARY GETAWAY – Enjoy the Maine coast at our peaceful and secluded year-round oceanfront property. Our unique location allows our guests to appreciate beautiful sunrises and sunsets, enjoy the many geese and ducks swimming in the bay, and see eagles soaring overhead. Nearby trails provide outdoor fun for hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. We are located 6 miles from downtown Freeport and 30 minutes from Portland on the end of a private peninsula with large windows overlooking the water.

The property has been in our family for three generations and while the original log cabin is no longer with us, the updated post and beam house offers modern amenities and comfortable furnishings. The northern view looks across the water towards Wolf's Neck Woods State Park and Wolf's Neck Farm; and the southern exposure offers views of some of the Casco Bay islands.

Our unique location and wrap-around deck allows our guests the opportunity to appreciate their morning coffee while watching the beautiful sunrises, or a glass of wine while enjoying the amazing sunsets. In the summer, kayakers welcome our close proximity to the water and access to the bay. For those with small boats and outboard motors, we have an outhaul mooring which allows greater access to enjoy Casco Bay. Our guests have explored the islands and inlets, motored to area restaurants and marinas, plus enjoyed greater fishing opportunities.

There are many things to see and do that are a short drive from the house. Treat yourself to a cruise on Casco Bay, shop L.L. Bean and the Freeport outlets, enjoy a cross country ski or snowshoe class at LL Bean, visit the Admiral Peary Arctic Museum or the Museum of Art on the grounds of Bowdoin College, or explore the Maine coast.

If you prefer a more relaxed vacation, you can spend many pleasurable hours observing wildlife on the Maine coast - ducks of all kinds, Canadian geese, ospreys, great blue herons, bald eagles, and harbor seals. Have fun climbing over rocky ledges and exploring tidal pools that contain tiny fish, crabs, and other sea creatures. Or, you can just relax in the sun and read a good book while enjoying the view.

We invite you to stay at our little slice of heaven on the Maine coast.
