2nd visit was just a great
This is a great house in a great location. Very comfortable and easy to be in. I am hoping we can come back for a 3rd visit.

A small home on the Harraseeket River, near South Freeport Harbor comes well stocked and decorated. It is available for weekly rental during June, July and August. This year we are offering rentals ( 3 night min.) during September and October. A winter rental is an option as well. While staying on the river, you may be fortunate enough to experience a full moon. Some of us believe, there is nothing prettier than a full moon on the Harraseeket. A canoe or kayak can be launched right from the front yard. The Harraseeket River is delightful for kayaking, as well as the gateway to Freeport Harbor and into Casco Bay. Just five minutes away is downtown Freeport, home of LL Bean and many well-known retail outlets. From Freeport, you are well positioned to make day trips to many Maine coastal beaches and towns. In Freeport, you have Wolf Neck State Park and Winslow Park to enjoy. Portland is just 19 miles away for access to city life as well as ferries to islands in Casco Bay. Our Harraseeket Home is perfect for a romantic getaway or kayaker's dream vacation. Enjoy beautiful views of Casco Bay and South Freeport's own Harraseeket River. Minutes from downtown Freeport are a variety of beaches both north and south of us (Popham, Scarborough, Reid State Park, Higgins, etc). An ideal spot to relax and rejuvenate.

Two friends and I stayed here for three nights in July. It was the perfect space for us--everyone got her own bedroom, but we enjoyed hanging out on the deck and in the kitchen and living room. The wall of windows brings beautiful views and plenty of sunshine in every morning. Although we didn't get a chance to do much cooking, the kitchen is well-equipped and Annie was thoughtful enough to have coffee at the house and frosty glasses in the freezer for our cold beverages! Annie's communication via email was also helpful and timely. She was just as friendly and gracious in person. A few tips on local amenities: there is a lobster pound about a mile away, but Erica's in Harpswell is much more picturesque and less expensive. Check out the breweries (Gritty's, Maine Beer) in town; the food at Gritty's is better than you might expect (especially the smoked salmon salad) and the beers are great. There's a custard place a little ways south on Rte. 1 that's worth a visit for a sweet treat. Freeport is very close, but if you just want a quiet stay away from it all, this house is perfect. The marina down the road (Ring's) will rent and deliver kayaks to the house for a reasonable daily rate (and you can keep them overnight). Paddling down the river is really fun--just be aware of the tides. Low tide is really low! Plus, you can put in from the back yard, but it's quite a steep grade to get down to the water, so you need a little muscle to carry the boats across the yard and down (not to mention back up). Take a dip in the river, too, if you get a chance--it's so pleasant on a hot day. And... the full moon over the river really is quite a magical sight! Overall, this is a great spot. My friends and I are already thinking about coming back next summer!
