About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our year-round oceanfront property is located just 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. 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 dinner cruise on Casco Bay, shop L.L. Bean and the Freeport outlets,

enjoy a performance at the Maine State Summer Music Theatre or a free summer outdoor concert at L.L. Bean, visit the Admiral Peary Arctic Museum or the Museum of Art on the grounds of Bowdoin College, visit the local farmers markets, 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.

This is a wonderful home right on the bay. Lovely accomodations, plenty of privacy and close to some of the best shopping, restairanst and scenery in the world. Just 10 minutes into Freeport and another 20 minutes from Portland. The owners were very helpful and the neighbors were great. Can't wait to get back

Stunning Views - Peaceful Surroundings!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to stay just outside the center of Freeport for a long weekend getaway. This cabin was simply perfection. Being pet-friendly and able to take our Beagle was a bonus! The cabin is spacious and the sunrise/sunset views are breathtaking. Located just 6 miles from LL Bean and downtown allowed us to take in some shopping in the morning and relax at the cabin in the afternoon only to return a short drive later to dinner/cocktails. The cabin is located down a very private road with no traffic whatsoever and with the owners living nearby is comforting. The cabin itself has everything you could ask for. Phil and Sue have thought of every last detail and the amenities were endless. We were very very pleased with our stay and look forward to a return stay in the near future! If you were lucky enough to come across this property, you have found perfection. Book Now!

Loved staying here.

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying here the house was all we expected plus so much more. Sue gave great directions, really like the grocery/liquor store she recommended. Would stay again in a heart beat if given the opportunity to be on the east coast.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! The location is amazing! Beautiful views and privacy yet so close to town. My dogs loved it too, especially being able to swim. Everything you need is provided such as linens and cookware. The owner was super easy to work with and booking was a breeze. We are already trying to decide when we can go back!
