Stay in an 1840s farmhouse, an L.L. Bean catalogue house. Double bed, desk, rocking chair, overlooking the islands of Casco Bay. Share full bath with one other guest room (not with host family). Use of kitchen, dining room, porch, coffee & tea. Self-serve/make breakfast at your leisure.

The space

If you are looking to stay with a Freeport family, in a spectacular New England saltwater farmhouse, featured on a L.L.Bean catalogue, this is your chance. The setting is bucolic, on Maquoit Bay, extraordinary Maine shoreline, kayak and canoe available (weather/season permitting), and only 3.8 miles from Freeport village. Six miles to Brunswick and Bowdoin College. Portland is 25 minute drive. Room price is for one or two (or three, if an infant). We can provide a Graco Pack-n-Play. Lots of farmer's markets.

Guest access

Shared, full bath (with one other room, often empty), kitchen, dining room, porch, wooded trails, beach front, fields. Library with wood stove (nights only).

Interaction with guests

Limited interaction, although available for general questions and directions. We work during the day and then homework at night. Late afternoons and all evenings we are with the children. We can offer some babysitting, if needed. We love babies. (We have pack-n-play if needed). And we always have time to help with directions and basic "what to do's?" On occasion there's time for a glass of shared wine.

Other things to note

If you are looking to stay in a New England, saltwater-farm house, with a spectacular view, this is for you.

Liza was an angel. I ended up needing the room late that night and she replied right away. She was a sweet, welcoming presence in her absolutely charming home. After a restful nights sleep, I woke up to a beautiful view of the water (the starry sky at night was also unbelievable). Thanks so much Liza!!

Beautiful home, gorgeous setting right by the water with stunning views of the ocean and peaceful natural surroundings. The room was exactly like the pictures - super cute and cozy. Bed was comfy and everything was clean and neat. Liza and her family are lovely and made us feel very comfortable and welcome.

Liza's place is, ummmm, how shall I say...all around amazing. But I've also known this wonderful woman since we were babes, so I'm partial! The room is very private, pretty and with a wonderful view of the water. She offered us all amenities possible as well as the use of her house and property (I don't know if this is a privilege of every guest). Her kids are wonderful as well as Lola the dog. The house and land are beautiful and it is very accessible to Freeport and all the fun there. I would highly recommend staying with Liza and her family. It is very cozy, warm and inviting.

Loved getting to experience the beauty of Freeport in a setting off the beaten path. Liza is a delightful host and a great resource for restaurant and touring recommendations. Her home and property provide amazing views and comfy spaces to relax both inside and out.

Liza's place was just as described, if not better! The location is just beautiful, accessible to Portland but with the peaceful seclusion of being by the ocean. I would highly recommend, and will be keeping it in mind for any future travels to Maine.

This place is a hidden gem! You wake up to beautiful views of the bay and feel like you are in a Maine fairy tale house. Lisa was so warm and welcoming. We would love to stay again.

Liza was fantastic, extremely communicative and friendly. She even brought us blueberry muffins and tea for breakfast! The house is gorgeous and clean, great views from the window. Adorable dog. Highly recommend!

We live in Maine, having moved here 15 years ago from Rhode Island. We bought a 200 year old farmhouse, rewired it, replumbed it, and repainted it. We put a covered porch on the back for sitting and looking out at the bay. We left the rest as it was originally with lots of rooms, stretched along its cape and ell. We absolutely love this house. I am an anthropologist and a writer, and because of that my family and I have lived in Mexico. We travel a fair amount. We try to go to Quebec City once a year, as it is only 4.5 hours from here. (NYC is 6 hours). We have stayed in Airbnb places in Ireland and France and the U.S. Our beach makes for a wonderful walk (bring rubber boots or borrow ours if you are size 7.5, as parts can be muddy) as does the field out front. We have a kayak and a canoe. We have lifejackets for most sizes. We have chickens and bunnies and a medium-sized dog and lots of wildlife. We have an herb garden and an organic vegetable garden. Oh, and we have an outside fire pit, perfect for s'mores. Right now, as I write this, the tide is coming in, the sun is out and the water is sparkling, the lobster boats are gathering their traps. I have a lemon tea, left-over raw-vegan brownies (they are actually edible), and the kids are in school. I only wish the day were 48 hours long.
