About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Our cabin provides rustic simplicity and the tranquil charm of life in the Maine woods overlooking the water.
In the MASTER BEDROOM, the combination of fresh Maine air and a comfortable Queen-size bed with patchwork quilt will have you sleeping soundly. You have 2 dressers for your jeans and t-shirts (all the wardrobe you'll need). In the GUEST ROOM, your guests or children will feel cozy in the built-in twin beds with a dresser. They have 2 bookshelves with an assortment of summer reading. There is a 'napping blanket' in every room just in case the need arises. The BATHROOM provides your basic needs with a sink, a toilet, and a hot shower. In the LIVING ROOM, there is a double sofa bed and 2 rustic cottage chairs. A picture window overlooks the bay and evening sunsets. For those cool days, you can make a fire in the glass-front woodstove, or just turn on the built-in propane heater. If the day is warm, open the doors at each end and the new screened windows, and you'll be comfortable. A countertop with stools separates the kitchen from the living room. The compact KITCHEN is fully furnished with a 4-burner gas stove and oven, sink and refrigerator. There is also a toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker and a complete set of dishes, pots and pans, glasses and utensils.

A small TV/VCR and a drawer full of a variety of videos as well as an AM/FM radio/CD player and a well-stocked bookshelf will satisfy your basic relaxation needs when you're indoors. There's a napping blanket in every room except the kitchen.Outdoors, you can lounge in the Sky Chair, in the hammock or on the deck with a good book.
If you prefer, either take a walk to Wolfe's Neck Farm and Wolfe's Neck State Park for delightful views of Casco Bay or hop in one of our 2 canoes or one of our 2 kayaks and explore the natural delights of Harraseeket Bay.

If you're ready for more, you're only 3 miles from L.L. Bean and over 150 upscale outlet stores. Fresh seafood abounds in Freeport from gourmet to New England classics, with even more offerings in neighboring Portland and Brunswick.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1967

About the owner: We are a retired couple of teachers who enjoy the outdoors and the company of others.

Why the Owner Chose Freeport, Freeport, ME, USA:
We first bought our cottage in the woods of Freeport for a place to escape the winters of dormitory living. Later, our cottage became a place to bring our children and then our grandchildren for some special time together in a natural setting.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Our cottage is a place to come for quiet rambles and escape from the hectic life in the outside world. There are, however, many opportunities to find a variety of entertainments a very short distance away.
