We enjoyed a lovely week in Freeport. The location and water view were our favorite parts of the house. (Less than 20 min to Portland!) You can watch the water for hours and enjoy the boats, sunsets, and birds. A few things to keep in mind: While there is an incredible view, not a place to swim (it's a mud flat). I would classify this rental as rustic and well-used. The kitchen needs supply upgrades. For example, there was a 4 cup coffee pot that leaked. Why not a regular 8 cup Mr. Coffee that works like a champ? We also weren't impressed with the cleanliness. All that being said, I would rent this house again!

From her prompt replies, quick responses to question, and checking in with us during the week, Susan is a wonderful host. This quintessential Maine cottage is perfectly located for most of your Maine coastal activities. We were just minutes from Freeport shopping, close to numerous picturesque fishing towns, and only a couple hours from Bar Harbor and Acadia. The cottage is situated among the trees as you can see, and is a delight in the morning as the sunrise greets your deck. Good sized rooms, everything you need in the kitchen, and enough deck seating, we sure enjoyed our time at the cottage. Thank you Susan for providing a "home location" for another memory-making family vacation!

The cottage was perfect for our family summer vacation! We come to Freeport often to visit family, and it was lovely to have a place to relax and decompress.

Classic Maine cottage in a quiet spot with an incredible view from the wraparound deck. Convenient to all the local sights and amenities. Excellent communication with Susan (the host). It was peaceful watching the tides go in and out, feeling the breezes, hearing the bird songs. And it's true what they say about moonrise over the Harraseeket - it's magical.

We booked a 7 night stay at this property, but left after 1 night because the cottage was so dirty and not as advertised. This is how we found the cottage at check-in: - Brown liquid in freezer - Used, dirty sponge on top of refrigerator - Grease drips down the wall above the stove - Stove is so old and warn that stickers have been added for the burners and oven temp - The provided silverware and utensils were dirty, with old food still stuck to them - One cabinet full of partially used and expired food - Kitchen curtain rod was broken - Owner could only find 1 spare key which only worked 1 of 3 doors - Gas grill did not work - Main TV did not work (power cord missing) - Stains on the furniture, area rug and curtains - Food, bugs and dirt on the floors and window sills - Finger prints & smears on all windows and glass doors - Bathroom fans caked with dust & debris - Large amount of hair in upstairs bathroom from previous renter - Upstairs shower head is rusted/corroded and brown rusty water comes out - The bikes & kayaks listed in the ad were not present After discussing these issues with the property owner, we decided to leave and she issued us a refund check. After we left the property, she put a stop payment on the check. This property is not as advertised and is basically a scam. Spend your money elsewhere and do not stay here!

On the water, with a deck & lots of windows for taking in the view — check. On a quiet lane with no traffic & quiet neighbors — check. Comfortable but not glitzy — check. Well stocked, with charmingly mismatched silverware — check. We loved our four nights here.

Pros: -Beautiful location, overlooking the water -Feels secluded even though your are close to neighbors -Close to downtown Freeport, nearby restaurants, Winslow Park, and Wolfe's Neck State Park -Amenities such as washer/dryer, wifi, working fireplace, kayaks are awesome Cons: -Cleanliness. Due to COVID-19, we avoided a hotel, believing a rental would be less risky. Understanding that we are in a middle of a pandemic, we expected above average cleanliness. Unfortunately, it was below what you would expect on an average day. Owner did state there was a new housekeeper so maybe that's the issue. However, there were crumbs on the table, spilled coffee on the kitchen counter, dirty coffee maker, an actual pile of dirt on the floor - our bare feet were black after walking on the floors and we ultimately spent the first 2 hours of our arrival cleaning. However, the bathrooms and bedrooms did appear quite clean (again except for the floors). Honestly, would not have been a huge issue if it wasn't for the current state of affairs as my elderly parents were also on this trip we were hoping it would be different. -Everything is a bit...moist? The chairs feel wet, your sheets feel wet. It may have been due to the humid weather. -Pots and pans are pretty bad. -If you have small children in tow - beware of the porch, the railings have very wide gaps above and below. -Neighbors are not friendly, can tell they do not appreciate a rental in the area. We got turned around on the way in and were rudely approached about being on a "private road", basically told us to get lost. Honestly, the home is really beautiful and you can't beat the location. In any other situation we could have gotten over the cleanliness issue. But we were disappointed in that due to COVID-19.

Great spot and a cozy rustic cabin very close to everything. We had our two big dogs with us and had to keep a close eye on them because other houses were very close with nowhere for them to run around near the cottage but we packed them up and found nice hiking spots closeby in Freeport. Thanks for letting us share your treasure by the bay!
