Come stay at our beautiful coastal guesthouse atop historic Town Landing Market! Built in 1880, Town Landing Market is situated a short walk from Falmouth's Town Landing public dock and beach in Casco Bay. We are a 10-minute drive from downtown Portland and a 15-minute drive from L.L. Bean and Freeport.
Divided into two units, yours will be the back unit, full of sunny tall windows, high ceilings and well appointed. The Iconic Town Landing Guesthouse (the front unit) is also available to rent.

The space
The guesthouse was recently renovated with new appliances and a granite kitchen countertop. Enjoy peace and quiet in the living room or invite guests to share the open, naturally lit first floor. There are two bedrooms on the second floor, perfect for a family.

If your interests include, hiking, kayaking, swimming, surfing, or other outdoor adventures we will provide information that will let you experience all that Maine has to offer!

Guest access
The guest house, located atop the Town Landing Market, is in the heart of Casco Bay, one of the most beautiful anchorages in the world. The Casco Bay Islands are sometimes called The Calendar Islands as it is said you could explore a different island each day of the year. The bay and the islands offer a chance to enjoy the slower pace of life with the wonderful smell of fresh ocean air, the witness to fog literally rolling in, resting on a bench or the rocks, warmed by the sun, and watching the mystical seabirds get their daily catch. You can take a leisurely paddle through the anchorage and the brightly colored lobster traps, sighting the friendly and playful harbor seals. (Portland Paddle will bring the kayaks to you) Sit on the docks and witness the seasoned lobstermen haul their traps. Indulge in an amazing local treasure, fresh steamed lobster or the easier version, a lobster roll!

Falmouth and the Greater Portland area have intricate trails which are mapped out and well marked. Some of the trails are along the coast, others are urban and for more variety, some are rural. There are trails marked for mountain biking and for snowmobiling. For road bikers, there are extensive bike lanes that can bring you into Portland, Fort Williams, Black Point and beyond.

The Casco Bay Lines, offers year-round ferry service to the larger islands. A day on the 'mail boat' will allow you to see the full bay, which ends at Cook's Lobster Shack. If you don't want to go that far, you can hop off at any island, rent a bike and spin around and take in the unique culture of the Maine island life. The ferry schedule is online and allows for easy planning of your island adventure.

If you'd like a quick ferry ride, hop aboard for the short 20-minute ride to nearby Peaks Island where there’s a thriving artist community, restaurants, and sandy beaches. You will pass by Fort Gorges and House Island, which is a massive bunker used in the wars past. Rent a bike to explore the island or circle the shore in a kayak.

Great Diamond Island has a 5 star restaurant, which is reachable by ferry or water taxi. If you plan to go there for lunch or dinner, make sure you give yourself enough time for a walk around the former parade grounds of Fort McKinley and see how former military buildings have been transformed into stately homes.

And not last or least, there is Chebeague Island, which is easily accessible by ferry from Portland or the Chebeague Transportation Company (CTC) out of Cousins Island in Yarmouth. The island has an adorable executive golf course, which is on either side of the path up to the Inn. Be aware, one of the holes goes right over the path!

If Island hopping isn't your (URL HIDDEN) worries. We are located right between the Old Port and Freeport. Shop your hearts out in either place. Freeport has been made famous by one of Maine's oldest retailers, LLBEAN, open 24/7 365. Freeport has also become a mecca of outlet shops.

Are you looking for local treasure, artistic treasures? The Old Port has a plethora of shopping, local artisans and local fare restaurants. Beer you say?? "Portland was voted the best craft beer city in the world," Matador Network" ((URL HIDDEN) We need to give shout outs to local breweries such as Allagash, Maine Beer Company, Bissell Brothers, and others. You can visit many of them on the Brew Bus Tours.

Come see it for yourself!!!!!

"PORTRAIT OF PLACE

An oceanfront community with an urban edge


Just a few minutes from the city of Portland, Falmouth Foreside has a feel all its own. Across the bridge spanning the Presumpscot River, past the cottagey homes along a residential strip of Route 1 and the modest entrance to the beautiful Maine Audubon headquarters, the road splinters. Falmouth Foreside’s main artery, Route 88, veers right, engulfing a driver in a wash of green in the summer, white in the winter. Almost immediately upon turning onto 88 (known, for a stretch, as Foreside Road), one understands that she has entered the best kind of suburbia, with natural beauty, peace, quiet, and privacy, and from which the urban center is actually accessible. Unlike most suburbs, the Foreside lies alongside the coast. Hints of ocean are all over the place, in the low price per pound for live lobster at the Town Landing Market, the crisp whites and nautical blues of the yacht club signage along the road, and the smell of salt in the air. This isn’t your typical beachside community. In the winter, you won’t find many windows boarded up, or starfish on sills. Instead, you’ll find a neighborhood aglow with twinkling lights, windows filled with trees and candles, driveways plowed, chimneys smoking.
