About the Property

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

See our new November & December rates (Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s excluded).
Join us at our home in Freeport for Holiday shopping, special events, or a peaceful getaway with your family and friends. Upcoming events in Freeport include L.L. Bean's Northern Lights Celebration and Sparkle Weekend; visit the Narrow Gauge Railroad’s Polar Express and beautifully decorated Victoria Mansion in Portland; and plenty of shopping in Freeport's many unique stores and outlets, and the Old Port waterfront district in Portland.

Our peaceful and secluded 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.
