Private room, your own oceanview

House - Private room · Flying Point Road, Freeport, ME 04032, United States

Stay in an 1840s farmhouse, an L.L. Bean catalogue house. The room comfortably fits two, desk, rocking chair, overlooking the islands of Casco Bay. Share full bath with one other room. Access to kitchen, cereal, milk, eggs, fresh muffins, coffee and blender. Self-serve/cook 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 person (if there; otherwise private), kitchen, and living room with wood stove.

Interaction with Guests

Limited interaction, although available for general questions and directions. We work during the day and keep a quiet house. Late afternoons and all evenings we are with the children. We can offer some babysitting, if needed.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is rural. Our closet neighbor is 1/3 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.

Getting around

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.

About
We live in Maine (USA, EU), my family and I, having moved here from Rhode Island. We bought this 200 year old farmhouse, rewired it, replumbed it, and repainted it. We put a large, long covered porch on the back. But basically we left this old house to be as it was originally, with lots of rooms, stretched along its cape and ell. There's a fire that burns in the fireplace all winter long. As for me, I am an anthropologist and a writer and I spend many hours in my home office working. Luckily I have a wonderful view and the wildlife keeps me distracted, which is good. My family and I have lived in Mexico, and travel each summer to another country, or we return to Mexico to see all our friends. We try to go to Quebec City when we can, as it is only 4.5 hours from here. We speak Spanish and we are trying hard to learn French. We have stayed in Airbnb rooms throughout Ireland and soon throughout France. Our own Airbnb bedroom does not come with a cooked breakfast, but there is coffee made in the morning, tea is available and there are fresh muffins. There are eggs in the refrigerator and cereal for make-it-yourself dining, too. You can buy a small amount of groceries and find room on a shelf for them, if you want to make sandwiches or cook something simple for dinner, working around our use of the kitchen. We'd ask that you clean up after yourselves. Our house is quiet during the day, after the morning flurry, 7-7:30 am. Then there is some flurry from 5-8, then it is quiet again. Our beach makes for a wonderful walk, the fields for a ski if you are so inclined and when there is snow. We have a kayak and a canoe, if you want to go out, so long as it is not winter and the tide is right. Must wear a lifejacket, which we can provide for most sizes. 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.
