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.

About Bonnie Bradford

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

Bonnie Bradford purchased this cabin in 1967

Why Bonnie Bradford chose Freeport

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Upon our return to Arizona, we want to thank you for our stay in your cozy cabin. What a location in Freeport, a short drive to stores and Wolf Neck State Park but isolated enough to only hear the birds and your waterfall. The views from your cabin are beautiful - perfectly framed from your hammock. We cherished the kayaking and walks to the farm.

Beautiful Scenery and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two dogs, and I had a great time at Bonnie's cabin. We were greeted with amazing homemade blueberry muffins from Bonnie and made to feel right at home. The cabin is down a private road so there isn't a lot of traffic going by which led to many days sitting on the hammock reading. When we weren't relaxing we were using the provided kayaks and canoe so paddle around the bay. The cabin is also very close to the downtown Freeport area so you are never too far from a restaurant or shopping if you so choose. I would highly recommend staying here and I look forward to coming back again.

Gorgeous setting!

  • 5 of 5

Very cozy cabin. It’s far enough from downtown Freeport that you feel you’ve gotten away from it all, but close enough for convenience. We loved the hammock and sky chair, and the kayaks! The Bradfords were there to greet us and were very welcoming. Bonnie made us the best blueberry muffins we’ve ever had to welcome us to the cabin. We’ll definitely be back when our children are older and can enjoy the property more!

Owner's Response: Many thanks to Stephanie for taking the time to post such a warm review. We are always gratified to know that our "people" get as much pleasure from our cottage as we do and that our little extra touches are appreciated.

Fabulous Freeport, Maine "cottage in the woods"!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival the first week in October for a weeks stay, our hosts, Bonnie and Bill greeted us with a warm New England campfire and we feel in love with the "cabin in the woods" immediately. Our hosts left us with a guest binder full of information for the surrounding area in Maine. Being our first time to New England from Traverse City, MI, this was an invaluable resource for eateries, shopping, historic towns to visit, antiquing and just riding around to look at the fall foliage. We would highly recommend this beautiful quiet oasis!

Thanks again to Bonnie and Bill for making our Maine experience a great one!

Owner's Response: We were so happy to share our cottage with Denise and Dave. We especially enjoy meeting people who have never been to Maine and are open to all that our delightful state has to offer. Thanks for your kind comments.

Freeport, ME - Charming Cabin in the Woods & on the Water

  • 5 of 5

We knew the moment we drove into the area that we had chosen the perfect place to stay in Maine. The cabin delivered the "woodsy" rustic charm we were seeking. The walk to the waterfront is a visual delight with walkways, a beautiful rock wall, and the clean, fresh smell of pine. Our mid-west roots had not prepared us for the high tide | low tide schedule and we found ourselves watching it daily to see when we could head out with the kayaks or low tide to dig for clams.

The cabin was well stocked with paper items, spices, and clean towels and linens. On the one rainy day we had, we dove into the treasure trove of movies available and greatly enjoyed a movie afternoon.

Easy access to Freeport and shopping. Day trips to Boothbay Harbor, Bath, Bar Harbor, and Portland are an easy drive. Loved hiking in Wolf Neck State Park.

We highly recommend the waterfront cabin in the woods for a great Maine experience and hope to return next year!

Lovely week at the cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Bonnie and Bill very kindly met us in Freeport as we came by public transport and showed us around. The cabin is in a beautiful setting and is well stocked and the Bradfords give loads of helpful information about what local amenities, attractions etc are in the area. We absolutely loved our week- canoeing with ospreys and herons flying overhead, walks to the state park, relaxing with books, BBQs and marshmallows over the firepit. We would highly recommend it to anyone, wish we were still there!

Owner's Response: Such a delight to meet our Scottish "people"! A charming couple whose response to the question "How will you tell what the weather will be?" responded, "We'll look out the window." A refreshing low-key approach to Maine living.

Very Restful, Relaxing Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We stayed two weeks at the little cabin in the woods, enjoying the waterfall when it rained and canoeing in the bay when the tide was up. The little rustic cabin is completely furnished and offers everything - a deck for morning coffee, a big picnic table, a hammock and a sky chair, two sea kayaks and a canoe and a convenient location. We enjoyed the area as well as the house, including the Maritime Museum in Bath, the art museum at Bowdoin College, the Farnsworth Museum to see the Wyeth paintings, and the nearby Olson House where Andrew Wyeth painted Christina's World. Another highlight was the boat trip to Eagle Island to see Admiral Peary's home. The friendly owners met us there and gave us a tour around the property at the beginning of our visit. Highly recommended.
