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.
Shared, full bath (with one person), kitchen, dining room and (evening only) living room with wood stove.
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?"
The neighborhood is rural. Our closet neighbor is 1/4 mile away. There is walking in the woods, along the beach, and up the winding, country drive along the 5 acre field and over to a 600 acre, publicly-owned saltwater farm, Wolfe's Neck Farm, 1 mile away. L.L. Bean's paddle center is close by. A great place to bike. We can give you some loops--to drive, hike, bike--that are sensational. Restaurant suggestions.
You will need a car. There is a train one can catch in town that goes into Portland and Boston, but no public transportation otherwise.
