About this listing
The loft is probably the best value in Freeport. This is because When I have guests at Laver's Loft I usually stay at my girlfriends place and they have the whole place to themselves. I travel a great deals so I am usually not there most of the time.
Private room and bath in a cozy post and beam artist's cottage near charming Freeport Harbor, on the Harraseeket River, in near Freeport, Maine. Two plus bedrooms, cozy living room with wood stove and country kitchen, 1.5 baths with a Jacuzzi, plus an outdoor shower (seasonal), . The cottage is nestled in a quiet neighborhood about a mile from the harbor and just two miles from downtown, LL Bean and the outlets in Freeport. A sunny back deck with deck chairs and picnic table offers privacy in this quiet woodsy location. Close enough to Portland and Casco Bay for day-trips, but seemingly miles yet minutes away from the crowds. Also convenient to Brunswick and Bowdoin College. Walk down to the town landing and its working waterfront. Just a short drive to public beaches at Winslow Park and Wolf Neck on Casco Bay and watch the boats parade by.
The cottage is my home and comes fully furnished, including linens and kitchen items.
Daysails on my small sloop or trips to Admiral Peary's home on Eagle Island can be arranged.
Bring your bikes and kayaks. Great restaurants and heaps of art galleries in the area. Summer music series at LL Bean and year-round happenings in nearby Portland, Brunswick and the Maine Mid-Coast.
The whole house and the laundry in the basement studio/workshop.
Interaction with Guests
I usually stay at my girlfriends place or in the studio in the basement. I interact with my guests as little as possible during their stay. I travel alot so I am usually not there at all. Someone is always available should the need arise even when I am out of town.
It quiet and secluded yet less than three miles from LL Bean and the outlets in town. It's a 10 minute walk to the Harbor and a 15 minute drive to Portland. Take in all that Casco Bay has to offer! Don't miss the opportunity to take a cruise to Eagle Island with Atlantic Seal Cruises and check out Admiral Peary's Summer home (He's the guy who made it to the North Pole first). Eagle Island is a State Park only accessible by boat!
The train comes through downtown Freeport a couple times a day. There is Taxi service as well but it's best to drive or it's an hour bike ride to Portland if you're old and fat like me.....
Other Things to Note
If you are here in the Spring, Summer or early Fall get out on the water. The Maine Coast is spectacular! I can arrange to get you out sailing or fishing if you like.
Treat my place with common sense. Pets are allowed, I have a fenced in section of the backyard and a 10' X20' kennel as well. If you smoke I prefer you smoke in Brunswick or Yarmouth (just kidding) Please smoke out on the back deck and cover your trail, pick up and put the butts in the trash out back, Thank you! I live in a quiet neighborhood please keep it to a dull roar and enjoy yourselves responsibly! Plenty of guests have entertained friends and family especially around graduation time. It's no problem, please let me know if that's your plan before the neighbors do.
