About the property

3 BRs & 3 full baths; rec room with pool table, piano & futon; sleeps 8+

This unique home, built in 1990 for its owners, is nestled in a very private woodsy setting. You'll love the deck & patio out back (without pesky mosquitoes--the SkeeterEater really works), the pond in front, and gardens, birds and fireflies all around. You're just a little over a mile from Route 1 but you'll never know it. Great place to relax at the end of a busy day exploring Maine's mid-coast area. Perfect for extended families or 3-4 couples. It boasts a full-sized slate pool table, 2 libraries, and a piano. Musicians built this house so there is sound in almost every room and thousands of CDs to enjoy. Large fully-equipped kitchen; the beds are new and comfy. In Autumn, the sugar maples around the home explode in crimson, orange and yellow.

This house is perfect for family.

  • 5 of 5

We were a bit apprehensive when renting this house; would it be as the pictures portrayed it, well it was better than expected. The house is a large three bedroom with a fully equipped kitchen and room for 8 to dine in comfort. It's location in the charming town of Wiscasset is a plus. We hosted two different family groups and both enjoyed the house and gardens. Having three full bathrooms, all with showers (and one with a bathtub) made it a breeze for everyone to get ready in the morning. We spent our days exploring the Maine coast; the Booth Bay Botanical Gardens are not to be missed. The lobster rolls at Red's in Wiscasset are the best, they live up to all the hype. After a long day out, it was a pleasure to return to the comforts of Freedom Song House. If you need a large house in a quite and peaceful setting, don't hesitate to book with these very accommodating hosts.

Great Get Away

  • 5 of 5

The house was unique in design, and beautiful! We decided to vacation a little bit on our own before the rest of my sons wedding party arrived. It was perfect for all of us. Plenty of room for everyone at the dinner table when we had dinner at the house before decorating the hall. 3 full nice bathrooms! Again another plus! Thankfully we had the "boys" at the house! We would definitely love to come back in the future!

A Beautiful and Restful House

  • 5 of 5

We last stayed in Freedom Song House in July 2014 and liked it so much we came back this year. We come from the UK and can say it's well worth coming the 2,500 miles to holiday here. We wrote a review back in July 2014 and all the positive things about this house remain. If anything it seems to have got better! It's a beautiful house, so much room, so well cared-for and so peaceful. It's almost incredible when you are in it to think that you are literally 3 or 4 minutes drive away from Route 1 which takes you to so many of Eastern Maine's attractions. The house is in a huge and attractive plot and is completely secure and private, so you get a real feeling of peace and seclusion. The wildlife in the gardens is great, especially the birds, and we were lucky enough to be there this year as a mother wild turkey was showing her new-born chicks around. The house itself is excellently equipped, with an enormous CD/vinyl collection for you to use, and the full-size pool table in the games room. Becki is the nicest and most helpful owner you could wish for, and makes everything so straightforward. We have stayed here twice now, and seem sure to be back again. Without doubt this is a place to rent with confidence and we'd recommend it to anyone without hesitation.

Private, wooded setting, but convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This place is ideally located for exploring the Maine coast. It's an immaculate home, with every convenience, and easily accommodates a big family. Very private wooded setting, with a beautiful yard. Everything was clearly labeled, and there were lots of maps, directions, suggestions, etc. so it was easy to settle in. Super easy reservation and prompt communications. Hope we can come again for a longer visit!

Made my wedding week perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I got married in Wiscasset this month. We rented this house to stay in with our wedding party during the week before the wedding. From the initial conversations with Becki, she was sweet, accessible and SO accommodating and helpful. She answered all questions and even took additional pictures of the property and house for us. The house itself was beautiful and spacious. There was plenty of room for us all to feel comfortable and and have privacy. The house was fully stocked with towels, soap, shampoo extra sheets, pots and pans, cleaning supplies, condiments, etc. The yard was also amazing. We had plenty of room for lawn games and sitting on the patio drinking coffee in the morning. We really felt like we were home. It was hard to leave and I would recommend this home for any family or group of friends looking for a home away from home.

The Perfect House For A Maine Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this house two years in a row and will book again when we return to Maine. We love staying here. It is the perfect house. It is centrally located. We drove south to Kennebunkport and north to Acadia and the Schoodic Peninsula. It is beautifully landscaped and located in a quiet, secluded area but only minutes from town. It is spacious and has everything one needs for a comfortable stay. I am always nervous about renting a house online. I always look for a property with many excellent reviews and hope for the best. If you are like me and want reassurance that you are renting a quality home, you can't go wrong by renting Freedomsong House.
